Kinettes play around and donate $3,000 to school By Sue Dickens

News - Campbellford - The Kinette Club of Campbellford wasn’t playing around, well maybe a ALIGNMENT CHECK $3995 little, when they donated $3,000 toward the cost of replacing muchRequest yours today! needed playground equipment at Campbellford Chrysler Kent Public School. “This is a huge amount … 531 Grand Rd. • 705-653-1210 thank-you,” said school Principal Dee Gannon during the presentation which took place in the schoolyard. “As you can see we managed to save one of the pieces by levBUZZING eling it but the big slide, which is cracked, needs to taken down,” she told the Kinette members who had gathered to see just what needed to be replaced. “Each piece costs anywhere from $25,000 to $45,000,” noted Gannon. To help with the fund raising, students at Kent held a fun fair recently and netted about $1,200 How much wood “It’s a lot of work for a little bit could a chainsaw … of money so it will take a lot of time to raise what we need,” said Gannon. The school council has decided GOOD PICS that 75 per cent of all fund raising “will go straight to equipment replacement.” “That’s a priority for them,” Gannon explained.

hold a “dotmocracy” event and vote on the piece of equipment they would like to see in their schoolyard. Gannon said there will be pictures of playground equipment posted for them to see. “Perhaps something like the Spiderweb at the Peterborough Zoo … It’s great for gross motor development and skill. It’s all ropes and intricate and the students can climb through it,” said Gannon. That piece of equipment costs $28,000. ‘We’re probably looking at over $350,000 that needs to be raised over the next ten years,” Gannon said. It is the policy of the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board that new playground installations and replacement parts comply with current Canadian Standards Association (CSA) standards on children’s play spaces and equipment. Existing pieces of equipment installed prior to these standards have to be maintained and modified as required, or removed, through consultation with the school principal. The Kinettes have issued a challenge to other groups and organizations to see if they can meet their donation or exceed it.

News - Hastings - The fish were biting even though the temperatures were less than spring-like during Hastings big Midnight Madness kick-off to fishing. The event, hosted by the Hastings Historical Society, is a celebration of the traditional opening of the walleye season and the unique and singular experience of fishing off the Hastings bridge and it never fails to draw a large crowd. This year’s Midnight Madness derby drew 172 anglers, down ten from last year’s 182.

“It was very cold,” organizer and derby impresario Tony Tuit conceded, “but it was still a joyous occasion because it was the start of fishing. Everybody there had fun except for the guy who got a ticket.” “Overall the spirit was good and most people were wrapped up,” said Tuit. “They caught a lot of fish.” “They’re anglers and they know what to do [to keep warm] and they The Kinette Club of Campbellford had some fun with their cheque presentation to Kent Public School.

CAMPBELLFORD WATER SUPPLY AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM UPGRADES The Municipality of Trent Hills (the Municipality) is undertaking a planning process to assess the Campbellford Water Supply and Distribution System for the Campbellford service area (referenced herein as the Campbellford Water System). The Municipality has identified that the community’s water storage tank is in need of interior and exterior rehabilitation, which will require it to be out of service for approximately 8 to 12 weeks, during which time the Campbellford Water System will require provisions to maintain service and reduce risks associated with current treated water storage volumes. This need, coupled with the existing reliability and redundancy of the existing potable water treatment plant, has led the Municipality to consider permanent upgrades to the water system that will not only service the Campbellford community during the standpipe rehabilitation, but also ensure the continued provision of safe drinking water well into the future.

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! Public consultation is a key component to this Study. The proposed consultation plan provides for a single Public Meeting to review the future servicing alternatives that are being considered as part of this project. This Public Information Centre will identify existing system constraints and potential alternative solutions. The ‘preferred alternative’ currently being considered envisions additional storage capacity and upgraded high lift pumping near the existing Water Treatment Plant facility, located at 58 Saskatoon Ave in Campbellford, ON. The Public Information Centre is scheduled as follows:

Accolades, honours for local winners at county awards By Bill Freeman

News - Peterborough County There were accolades, honours and plenty of applause at last week’s Peterborough County Recognition Awards where 45 recipients in 12 different categories were lauded for contributions to their communities and the county in general. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to say thank-you to special people” is how county Warden J. Murray Jones summed up the gala occasion hosted by the Township of Cavan-Monaghan at the Peterborough Curling Club. The county’s selection committee received 82 nominations this year; since 1993 there have been over 800 nominations and 800 awards presented. Several of the award winners were from Havelock-BelmontMethuen and Asphodel-Norwood including the Havelock Country Jamboree and Norwood District High School student Emma Smith. “I was in total shock,” said Emma, an OFSAA badminton medallist, former Norwood Fair

Ambassador and Duke of Edinburgh Award winner of the youth award she received. “I had no idea. I knew I had been invited to come but didn’t know what I was winning. I’m very grateful to be nominated. “I don’t volunteer because of recognition. I just do it to give back to the community,” she says. Emma encourages other young people to get involved in their communities. She says volunteering has enriched her life and it’s something she will continue to do. “Norwood is a great town.” Havelock Country Jamboree owner Ed Leslie says the recognition award is really a team honour. “I wish all my volunteers and staff would have got awards,” Leslie said. “It’s all because of them that it works out; everybody who is involved who helps me. There are so many people. I’m just the guy who signs the cheques.” The Jamboree celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary this August with performers like Alan

Jackson, Dierks Bentley and Josh Turner along for the party. In the past 24 years over 3,800 musicians have played on the famous twin stages and the Jamboree has grown to be one of the largest outdoor events in Ontario. “It’s a huge economic driver for the township and area,” says HBM Mayor Ron Gerow. During Jamboree time the small township grows into a big city, said Gerow. Lorne Benjamin of the 1st Havelock Scouts said his community volunteer of the year award was “really unexpected.” “I get told that I’m the biggest kid at Cubs so I really didn’t think it was volunteering,” Benjamin said. “It’s nice to be recognized but it’s not really necessary “It’s nice to see some people I know get recognized. A big event like this is nice and really good for the county.” “It is an honour but I was thinking there are amazing people I work with on other projects who never did receive it,” said award-winning Norwood author Ursula Pflug who was honoured for leadership in arts and culture.

“So much of what we do is as a team so there is not one person who receives the award; there are many people behind the scenes whose enthusiasm contributed.”

“It’s a privilege and honour,” said Doug Irvine whose Asphodel-Norwood automotive repair shop was honoured for business leadership and entrepreneurial

innovation. “We like to think we’re community-minded; we try to do our best for the community and the people in the community.”

New information sign a team effort By Bill Freeman

News - Norwood - For the first time in decades, Norwood has a prominent information sign at one of the most-travelled sections of the downtown corridor. The sign features a street map of Norwood that includes business locations, public buildings and other landmarks as well as a larger map of Peterborough County with notable sights and destinations identified. There’s also a weather-proof spot to place the newly published guide to Asphodel-Norwood and a nearby bench donated by the Asphodel-Norwood Beautification Committee. “It was a real collaboration,” says Beautification co-chair Doreen Allen-Bell. The initiative united the Beautification Committee, the Norwood IODE and the municipality. “The Beautification Committee had mentioned that this was a project the township was going to invest in and we were still looking to spend our one-hundredth anniversary money for a big project,” says IODE regent Lisa Cossar. “We thought this would

be a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary, something community-minded that was going to be used by tourists and residents. “It kind of goes with our projects like the bench at the Norwood Library. We’re really pleased with it. Cossar says the project was a “great idea” and because of its location near the sidewalk in front of Norwood Foodland it will be visible and well-used. The two maps are perfect for people who want to orientate themselves when they reach Norwood, she said. It’s also another reason for passersby to get out of their cars. The Beautification Committee wanted to have a map “and the township ran with it,” said AllenBell. The sign itself was made by Councillor Rick Kloosterman of JPR Manufacturing; the map was designed by Murray Greer of Shadowlight Imaging Studio in Norwood and the identification of businesses and notable landmarks was done by municipal employees Becky Bonisteel and Pam Quinlan.

The Beautification Committee was thrilled the IODE picked the Beautification Committee as an anniversary project, added cochair Susanne Langford. “The timing was absolutely perfect,” said Allen-Bell. “This is a very busy intersection and it’s for visitors and residents. Even though you live in Norwood you don’t always know what’s around you. There are lots of services in town. It was nice that they were able to do the churches and schools as well as the retail side of it,” she said. The Beautification Committee has just completed planting at the new Railside Rest located in the southwest corner of the millpond off County Road 40. They’ll install a sign at the parkette once Peterborough County staff approve a final location. The sign will be “very similar” to the township’s signs with the same colour pattern. There will be a trillium on top with the name “Railside Rest” underneath; beneath that will be the Asphodel-Norwood Beautification Committee logo. On the sign’s two stakes will

HHS promoted the event using special banners that were purchased with funds received through the village’s World Fishing Network Ultimate Fishing Town Canada grand prize. Hastings picked up the $25,000 grand prize in 2012 and money was disbursed to

four worthy projects through the Hastings Environmental Group. The banner project received $1,000. “The Historical Society will make a profit and we’ll do it again,” said Tuit. “Banjo’s was busy and did have a bit of music inside.”

“The best thing is that it raised a bit of money.” Tuit said there were anglers from all over southern Ontario including Toronto, Cobourg, Bridgenorth and Brighton. “Hastings has a reputation for fishing so they come here.” Britney Ferguson, 17, of Hastings was the first woman to land a walleye hauling in a 15-inch fish at 12:35 a.m.; Hastings’ Neil Tanner was the first man to land a fish pulling in a 19.4-inch catch at 12:35 a.m. Megan Porter, 13, of Hastings won the youth prize with her 13.8-inch walleye which she caught at 12:44 a.m. There were a number of sponsors who supported the event with draw

prizes which were handed out during the early-morning hours including The Ultimate Bait and Tackle, the Amazing Dollar Store in Havelock, The Captain’s Table, Johnston’s Pharmacy, A Single Stitch, The Water Lily, ReMax/Dennis Savery, Marion’s Live Bait and Tackle, Brown’s Auto Wreckers and Used Cars, Bridgewater Coffee and Pizza, Reg Ward Insurance, Em’s Unique Dollar Store, Hasty Mart and Hastings Home Hardware.

Hastings community garden takes root again By Bill Freeman

News - Hastings - The Hastings Environmental Group’s (HEG) community garden has taken root once again thanks to a group of very young gardeners and their parents from the Ontario Early Years Centre. The OEYC teamed up with the Pat Stuckless of the Kawartha Haliburton Pine Ridge District Health Unit, who provided seeds and plants, and gave the community garden located on the south shore of the Trent near the beach a fresh new look. Todd’s Valu Mart in Hastings donated five bags of topsoil while Jake Whaley provided wood for a garden border. “We’re just thrilled that its back in use and that we can get that excitement going again,” said Sarah Stoner of the HEG. The garden was established in 2011 and Stoner said it got put on the backburner the following year during the Ultimate Fishing Town frenzy that gripped the village. “We were really excited to put it in

and there were great plans for it,” she said. With the Early Years Centre actively involved and Hastings Public School invited to participate, the garden is very much about children and families. “I love that it’s for children with snackable foods so that when they’re at the beach they can come and pick stuff off it,” Stoner said. “We wanted it somewhere close to the water so people could use it and we wanted it somewhere where people could see it and use it.” Children planted peas, beans, sunflowers and cherry tomatoes which join the onions, chives, mint and other herbs that are in already in the garden. OEYC volunteer Danica Donald says there is interest in giving the garden a name and that the name the Hastings Children’s Garden had been discussed. She has also approached the municipality and asked about the possibility of having a sign to identify the garden and what it represents. “If the children know it’s there and if

the children know they can go into it and pick things that so when they’re over at the beach they can come over. It’s for the kids and the community,” said Donald. She has even thought of having a competition so that children could paint their favourite vegetable and have that added to the sign. It would give children “more ownership over the garden,” Donald said. Hastings OEYC supervisor Angie Nestoruk says the initiative is an extension of early springtime talk at the centre about plants. It was very satisfying, she said, watching families dig in the dirt as they prepared the garden and planted seeds. “It’s community pride and it’s a family effort too. It’s all about sharing too.” It’s also about “getting back to the earth and your food source,” Nestoruk added. Kids need to know that food doesn’t magically appear in the grocery store, she said. Pat Stuckless of the Kawartha Haliburton Pine Ridge District Health Unit shows Calista Whaley, Georgia Moorey and Olivia Moorey some worms that she brought to the Hastings Community Garden.

Letters with a political party bias Dear Editor: The sky is falling … the sky is falling! Yes sir, the Harper government’s Fair Elections Act legislation is the reason if you believe any part of Kyle Morrow’s letter that appeared recently in the Independent (“Hands Off My Right to Vote,” Mr. Harper”). I’m a senior and have been for a long time. Anytime I cast my ballot I’ve been asked

to produce ID so what’s all the fuss about “vouching?” I thought just about every resident has some form of ID and if they don’t they must be from another planet. But let’s get right down to the heart of the matter. Kyle Morrow, who refers to himself as a law student, University of Ottawa, is really a dedicated member of the Liberal Party of Canada. So he’s hardly an indepen-

dent voice in the issue. The former Liberal candidate for Lacombe-Ponoka in Alberta claimed that the Fair Elections Act would impact 500,000 voters in Canada. But even the Chief Electoral Officer, who also opposes the Act, says it would impact maybe 100,000. That’s quite a difference. What it does prove is that Mr. Morrow is attempting to be as negative as possible even if he has to exaggerate the facts. I’m simply becoming irritated of reading about the biased

rantings of party organizers or officials of any political party. They simply take advantage that newspapers all over the country will print their political propaganda and that’s why they do it. However, readers should understand they are not getting unbiased sentiments. There is a big difference between writers of letters to the editor with no political ties as opposed to someone like Morrow who wears his Liberal red proudly. Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

Dear Editor, Re. Kyle Morrow comments – May 1 paper. Would like to comment on Mr. Morrow’s “hands off Mr. Harper – right to vote. Mr. Morrow being a law student obviously still educating himself, is obviously not in tune with what is going on in the real world of the right to vote. As a past supervisor of polls and deputy returning officer, twice on both accounts, I would like to advise Mr. Morrow of some practical facts on why the government is absolutely correct on this action. There have been many cases, and I have witnessed this personally, where individuals

arrive at the polling station without identification and/or other paper work demanding the right to vote. In a number of cases they have demanded in a rude and offensive fashion, voting privileges. This is specifically true of new arrivals and some others that do not appear to understand just what voting in Canada and the system is about. If you do not, then get yourselves acquainted people. This is what the Harper government is attempting to eliminate and such action is totally correct. Do not back down on pushing Bill C-23 through prior to the next election. Yours truly N. A.

A New “Longitude Prize”

Editorial - Voting begins this week to choose the problem that the winner of the Longitude Prize 2014 will have to solve—and win £10 million ($17 million). It’s a publicity gimmick, of course, but it may be very useful nevertheless. Especially because, unlike most of these prizes for innovation, it is meant to solve a problem that is of concern to all of humanity. The DARPA Challenges are all Gwynne Dyer about autonomous vehicles and robots, mostly with military applications. The Ansari X Prize was for a low-cost reusable spacecraft capable of sub-orbital flight, and the follow-on Google Lunar X Prize is more of the same. Toys for the boys. The $10 million Tricorder X Prize, announced in 2012, is a bit closer to the mark, as it would reward the development of an instant diagnostic device like the one used by Leonard “Bones” McCoy, the Chief Medical Officer in the original Star Trek series. But the Longitude 2014 Prize is the real deal. It marks the 300th anniversary of the first Longitude Prize, when the British parliament offered £20,000 (a sum comparable to £10 million now) to anyone who could devise a method for finding a ship’s position at sea. Latitude—its distance North or South of the equator—could easily be found by measuring the height of the sun or the Pole Star above the horizon, but there was no good way of determining its East-West position: its longitude. The solution was obvious in principle. You just set your clock at noon at your port of departure, note the time it reads when the sun is highest wherever you are, and the difference between noon on the clock and noon at your present position will tell you your longitude. But your clock must stay accurate during long sea voyages. They had good pendulum clocks in the 18th century, but pendulums didn’t work very well on a rolling, pitching ship. It took a long time to build a chronometer that stayed accurate enough (gaining or losing only a few seconds per month) to let mariners calculate their longitude to within one or two nautical miles, but by 1765 John Harrison, a clockmaker from Lincolnshire, had done the job. He died a rich man, and he deserved his reward: thousands of ships were saved from shipwreck and hundreds of thousands of lives were spared in the century that followed.

By Terry Bush

The new Longitude Prize is all about saving human life (or improving it) on a very large scale. There are six “challenges” on the Longitude Committee’s list, and only one of them will be chosen for the prize. They are: Flight - How can we fly without damaging the environment? Food - How can we ensure everyone has nutritious sustainable food? Antibiotics - How can we prevent the rise of resistance to antibiotics? Paralysis - How can we restore movement to those with paralysis? Water - How can we ensure everyone has access to safe and clean water? Dementia - How can we help people with dementia live independently for longer? When you read the actual “job descriptions” of these challenges, it’s clear that some thought went into it. Consider the antibiotics challenge, for example: “Clinicians often prescribe broad spectrum antibiotics to sick patients because doctors have to act quickly on imperfect information. These methods put selective pressure on microbes to evolve resistance to antibiotics …. “The challenge … will be to create a cheap, accurate, rapid, and easy-to-use test for bacterial infections that will allow doctors and nurses all over the world to better target their treatments, administering the right antibiotics at the right time. Point-of-care test kits will allow more targeted use of antibiotics, and an overall reduction in mis-diagnosis and prescription. This will ensure that the antibiotics we have now will be effective for longer.” So you could win this challenge with a working Tricorder—two Prizes for the price of one?—and the breakthrough idea need not even come from the medical field. As BBC Director-General Tony Hall said when the prize was announced: “There might be another modern-day John Harrison somewhere out there … and they may not even know that they’re a scientist.” It’s a kind of crowd-sourcing, and none the worse for that. The voting to decide which challenge gets the nod opened on May 22 on the BBC Horizon web site, and closes on June 25. Unfortunately, voting is restricted to British residents, but the prize is open to everybody in the world. And maybe there are five other governments out there that would like to put up $10 or $20 million for a solution to one of the other five challenges.


Less government, not more Dear Editor, We have never written a Letter to the Editor before; however, we must respond to Mr. Whittaker’s comments of May 22, 2014. While criticism of Mr. Hudak is fair, he would have done better also to point out the ten McGuinty years of ever increasing provincial deficits, the eHealth fiasco, the absolute disgrace of the two gas plants purely to buy provincial seats in the Legislature, and, of course, ORNGE. Oh, but wait, that would not support his arguments against the Conservatives! And has he heard the Ontario Liberals talking about borrowing from the Bank

of Canada? We haven’t. His final sentence is utter stupidity! We need less government, not more. The way of more and more government merely adds less and less opportunity, incentive and the wherewithal for us to grow and prosper. Or does Mr. Whittaker not realize that mighty Ontario is now a have-not province? We would posit that this is not a result of less government and the growth of our manufacturing and industrial strength, but of more government and the precipitous decline in our manufacturing and industrial sector. And we need leaders, not politicians,

for the truth is that they are all the same, except for the colour of their ties and campaign posters, and each government, whether provincial or federal continues to prove the point. As electors, we are so tired of their (non)performance with no prospects of improvement. No wonder the young voters are apathetic. We hear much blahblah-blah from the three “leaders” but no vision, no heart for seeing Ontario progress and move ahead. What a bunch!

Editorial - I blinked, and I missed it. Either that or there is some kind of Rip Van Winkle thing going on at the moment and I just woke up. It seems like only a couple of weeks ago, snow could still be found in the woods around our property. The furnace was still blasting and things were cold and damp. We couldn’t wait for spring. Then, in the blink of an eye, the black flies turned up, then the mosquitoes and now the dragonflies are out finishing up the black flies. Summer seems to have arrived this week. I’m always a little taken aback how quickly trees can go from having no leaves to being full-figured. No grass one week turned into cutting the grass twice last week. If it wasn’t for the fact that hockey is still on, one might think it’s July. But hockey is still on and I think I speak for most Canadians when I say, enough is enough. It’s too late in the year for hockey. How hard would it be to start the hockey season the second week of September and have it finish up by the end of May. Three-out-of-five series for the first two rounds. No more than one day off between games and voila, done by the May 24 weekend with a lot of happy campers. Folks are excited about hockey in the fall and have better things to do than sit in front of a television set at 1 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon in May and June. While it may now seem to be summer after a winter that refused to die, a few words with a local farmer will soon set you straight. “Got part of the seeding done but can’t get into the low spots. Too much water around.” Now part of a farmer’s job description has always been complaining about the weather. For the past few years, we haven’t had enough rain. Last year we had almost the right amount of rain and this year, maybe we had a little too much snow on the ground for a little too long. If the crops get in on time, all will be good … especially if that last bit of corn sees the combine in the next week to free up that field of heavy clay for planting. Despite the balmy temperatures, I can tell it’s still spring because the usual suspects are out running over turtles for fun. What joy a person could experience by killing such a benign creature is beyond me. As I’ve said before, it’s not like turtles dart out in front of vehicles. A squirrel or chipmunk, I could understand. They can’t seem to make up their minds at times. I hit a squirrel a couple of weeks ago and of course felt bad about it. Saw it running towards the road out of the corner of my eye, I slowed down, it ran in front of the car, made it half way across the other lane and then for some reason known only to the squirrel, it doubled back and ran right under my front left tire. Not the way most people would want to start their day and probably not what the squirrel had in mind either. Birds, squirrels, chipmunks, frogs, if you’ve driven a car, there’s a very good chance you’ve hit something along the way. Maybe you’ve nailed one of those daredevil robins that like to fly across the road at an altitude of less than a metre. One would think after a couple hundred generations of dealing with vehicles, robins would have figured out that flying at a higher altitude might pave the way to longevity. But turtles? With a clear field of vision, it’s almost  impossible to hit a turtle unless it’s one of this year’s models that resembles a clump of dirt on the highway. So, this leads me to believe that most of the people running over turtles for fun are insecure girly-boys. They need to kill something to prove to themselves they have power over life and death and that makes them manly-men.  To which I say, how manly are you if you’re using a truck or car as a weapon? Who’s braver, a person who squashes a turtle using a truck or a person who parks their vehicle by the side of the road, gets out, waits for traffic to subside or stop and picks up a snapper and carries it to the side of the road. Seems like a no-brainer to me. And it’s obviously a no-brainer to lots of other people judging by the number of folks I’ve seen stopping in the past couple of years to help turtles cross the street. Old people, young people, women and men seem to understand the gravity of the situation and the tide is starting to turn. Turtles need help if they’re going to survive in this province. With more and more roads and trails being built and more habitat being lost every day, most species of turtles in our province are now threatened. That’s why many folks and a few municipalities are putting out signs warning of turtle crossing areas and many small towns now have volunteers bringing injured turtles to the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre in Peterborough, <>. Seriously, how hard is it to put a pair of gloves in your car and stop and move a turtle across the road in the direction it was headed. If you’re a little squeamish especially about snappers, a shovel will work just fine. Thirty seconds to save a life, that’s all it takes. And it takes about the same amount of time to call the MNR tips line (1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667) to report someone killing turtles. Don’t think about it, just do it. Your grandkids and great-grandkids will thank you for it.

Clock Tower Cultural Centre officially opened By John Campbell

News - Campbellford - The building at 36 Front Street South has taken on many guises since its construction in the 1930s. It started out as a post office, later served as the town’s municipal office building and then was turned into a community resource centre before undergoing renovations to assume its newest role, as the Clock Tower Cultural Centre. A grand opening was held May 23 with many of the people who played a part in its change being on hand for the celebration. Brian Finley, artistic and managing director with Westben Festival Arts Theatre, the centre’s principal tenant, said he and his wife, Donna Bennett, Westben’s marketing director, are “absolutely delighted to be” in the building. “It’s just given our whole organization such a boost of energy.” Westben relocated its box

office and administration office to the centre and are using space in the building as a studio for rehearsals and performances. There are also areas set aside for educational programming and the storage of costumes. There is also space available for rent to other arts and cultural groups in the area. Finley praised the municipality for having made culture the focus of the heritage designated building “to enrich the community” and provide a gathering place for creative people, “in the pursuit of a better way of life.” Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan said “it’s great to have Westben as a partner” and he praised the federal and provincial governments for funding half of the $750,000 project. He noted there is some work still to be done, including landscaping out front, where two large trees were recently removed, saying new

trees will be planted. Macmillan expressed a desire to have the two large columns that occupy a prominent position in the main floor’s large open area removed as they interfere with people’s sight lines when council holds its meetings there. Director of planning Jim Peters said it was never imagined the columns “would cause the challenges” they have, which are part of the “growing pains” that come with breathing new life into the building. The architect for the project, Ken Trevelyan, explained afterwards “it’s pretty difficult to take them out.” They “carry the roof” as well as the upstairs floor, so they’re bearing about 30 per cent of the building’s weight. There’s nothing that can be done with them now, “not without a great deal of expense [and] we’d have to probably hang the second floor from the roof to do it, [which] would mean a big beam up on the roof. It’s difficult [and] would add quite a bit of cost to the project to do that.” The municipality’s emergency control centre is located in the basement and has its own generator. It’s also an area where training sessions can be held.

The former post office/municipal office/community resource centre at 36 Front Street South has a new name and purpose: Clock Tower Cultural Centre. It was officially opened in its latest incarnation with a ribbon-cutting exercise May 23. Among those in attendance were, in front, l-r, Trent Hills director of planning Jim Peters, Councillors Gene Brahaney, Rosemary Kelleher-MacLennan, Kim McNeil, Mayor Hector Macmillan, Westben Arts Festival Theatre co-founders Brian Finley and Donna Bennett, and community development officer Vaughn Finch.

The first provincial all-candidates meeting for the riding of Northumberland-Quinte West was held last week in Campbellford and questions were posed by residents beginning with one from Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan about rising hydro costs. Photo: Sue Dickens By Sue Dickens

News - Campbellford - Rising hydro costs sparked a great deal of interest at last week’s provincial all-candidates meeting held at the high school here, topping the list of questions. It was one topic on which all party candidates agreed that a solution needs to be found. Hosted by the Trent Hills and District Chamber of Commerce, this was the first all-candidates debate held in Northumberland County leading up to the June 12 election. Four candidates have thrown their hats into the ring for the riding of Northumberland-Quinte West. A record number of people showed up for the debate, about 150, which compares to the seven who turned out for the 2007 debate and the 13 for the 2011 debate, according to incumbent Progressive Conservative MPP Rob Milligan, of Warkworth. He is being challenged by former Liberal MPP Lou Rinaldi of Brighton, NDP candidate Kira Mees of Hastings and Green Party candidate Gudrun Ludorf-Weaver of Cobourg. Emceed by chamber President Jeff Hamilton, the evening began with written questions followed by questions from the floor. Topics ranged from the high cost of hydro to skills training to jobs, the provincial deficit, the future of agriculture

in rural Ontario and the mandatory pension being proposed by Premier Kathleen Wynne, who is also Minister of Agriculture and Food and Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs. Even the Premier’s dual role was up for debate. Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan kept the spotlight on the issue of electricity costs asking which of the candidates would support a “comprehensive service delivery review” and include municipal and public consultation on the issue. Candidates were also asked about their party’s plans to provide access to secondary school programs for rural youth, to policy surrounding farm land loss and farm land protection and accessibility of health care and quality medical services to rural and small town residents. One audience member “Peter” who said he is a diabetic, asked why the government cut funding for test strips that diabetics use to monitor their blood sugar. Bob Brown, a farrier, raised the issue of the Liberals cutting the slot funding to the horse racing industry. “It’s directly affecting farmers in the area,” he noted. Marlena Sculthorpe of Port Hope questioned the candidates on their party’s stance on “water to energy facilities” in light of the proposed incinerator

project slated for her town. “My question touches on everything we’ve discussed tonight, the Green Energy Act, health, environment, protecting rural farmland, and supporting young farmers,” she said. Alan Appleby of Camp-

bellford asked the candidates what they would do about “the huge burden of infrastructure and social service costs downloaded onto municipalities”. In closing remarks candidates provided some parting volleys in the hopes of garnering votes.

Incumbent Progressive Conservative MPP Rob Milligan spoke of what he called “fear mongering” then said, “We want to create jobs in this province and in order to do that we need to get our energy costs under control we need to attract business, bring manufacturing back here … we need to protect agriculture, not shut down colleges like Kemptville.” Photo: Sue Dickens

Garbage left lying about turning Hastings into an eyesore an end to garbage being left about. “We have had a tremendous amount of support from members of the community,” and have had success in several areas, she said, but there are issues that still need to be addressed. Asselstine described scenes and showed photos of garbage cans overflowing, saying their placement in parking lots throughout the village “promotes drive-by dumping.” She suggested some of the cans be moved and that signs be installed to encourage the public to report illegal dumping. Asselstine said surveillance cameras might be the answer and she asked that the municipality’s bylaw enforcement officer “be more visible” in the community and begin issuing tickets. “We’ve got to do something, we need to have these areas monitored,” Asselstine said. She also suggested that lids be Trent Hills council was shown a number of photos of garbage being strewn placed on the garbage containers, about and overflowing containers throughout the village of Hastings. which get so full on the weekends that trash is “falling all over the place”; the Photo: Submitted ones on the bridge are even used as urinals, she added. “You walk across the bridge the stench is unbelievable,” Asselstine said. She showed council a copy of the message that will be affixed to the garbage cans to remind people not to litter or deposit household garbage. Asselstine and Baggs have taken their crusade to Hastings Public School, and two of its students, Sadie Mees and Antje Kroes, made their own special plea for council to do something about littering, which can harm wildlife. They attributed the problem to “a lack of respect” for Hastings by By John Campbell

News - Trent Hills -The illegal dumping of household trash continues to plague Hastings despite the best efforts of some citizens to keep the village clean.

“It is a huge, huge issue,” Wendy Asselstine told council last week when she and Wendy Baggs followed up a presentation delivered eight months ago asking for the municipality’s help in putting

both visitors and members of the local community. Mayor Hector Macmillan said he gets calls every so often from residents across Trent Hills who have witnessed “people step right out of their house and walk across the street and drop their garbage in a municipal waste can. “They think they’re getting away with it but we know who they are and it’s just a matter of coming up with a solution on how we’re going to deal with it,” he said. Asselstine pointed out that anything she and others have done to clean up the community has been done at their own expense. “We haven’t asked anybody for financial help.,” she said. “I can’t believe you’re doing all this on your own,” Macmillan said. “You need some help … We’ll get something going.” The municipality was praised for the support it has shown the women’s campaign to protect turtles, which has included talking to schoolchildren about the important role the Turtle Trauma Centre (705-741-5000) plays in the rehabilitation of turtles, the

This is Bitzi - she is a lovely gold spotted tabby. Bitzi allows people to pet her at feeding time only. If you’re lucky you can steal a pat while she sleeps silently in dreamland. Bitzi might need time and patience to feel comfortable with a dog. She will probably become more affectionate in a home with fewer cats than her current foster home. Please help Bitzi find her forever home. Bitzi may indeed find that humans can be her best friends once she is in her forever home with fewer felines to interact with. Please remember kitten season is here and we desperately need loving foster homes so we can rescue some of the helpless ones and find them loving forever homes too. Without foster homes we are unable to rescue and the cats and kittens and they will have to be returned to an undeserved life outside without the love and care they should have. We are also looking for barns, out buildings or very patient accepting homes for feral cats that need to be relocated. They are spayed/ neutered. We will trap them and bring to you. We do not charge an adoption fee but ask for a donation. Thank you for your consideration.

Photo: Ken Jen Zoo A race of flying geese will be one of several during the Warkworth Fall Fair which will feature a new event this year, the “Pig Racing, Down Home Hillbilly Show.” The fair board is looking for individuals or businesses and organizations to sponsor “a critter” for the races. In return they will receive recognition/advertising at the fair. Photo: Ken Jen Zoo

By Sue Dickens

News - Warkworth - The Percy Agricultural Society is going hog wild and getting their oink on with a new feature at this fall’s Warkworth Fair to be held Saturday, September 6, and Sunday, September 7. “Celebrity Racing Hogs’ Show is a Canadian-style backwoods Hillbilly show with non-stop entertainment for the whole family, filled with crowd participation and lots of action,” said Tracy Russell, fair board secretary and spokesperson. “Boss Hog and Mother Hen” (Ken and Jennifer LaSalle) own and operate

Ken Jen Zoo, a celebrity pigs and petting zoo near Oshawa. “Boss Hog” made a presentation to the Warkworth fair board recently to talk about how to get sponsorship for the show. “This is a fast, upbeat act that also involves audience participation and includes sponsorship opportunities from local business and media as well,” Russell explained. “We need to obtain sponsorships. Not only does it help to pay for this event but it is actually part of the whole show as people/groups/businesses can ‘buy/sponsor’ a pig and when that pig races their name is mentioned and it is all part of the entertainment. Business banners can also be displayed on the fairgrounds for some great advertising,” she added. “Ken Jen Zoo, <www.kenjenzoo. com>, has been delivering their special brand of affordable family entertainment coast to coast in Canada for four decades while also supplying

tame animal displays for film, television and commercial photography.” Ken Jen Zoo opened its doors 40 years ago. In that time the couple have taken their show on the road and travelled from coast to coast. “I’ve been holding pig racing for the past ten years,” LaSalle told the Trent Hills Independent. Located on about 40 acres of land he has several hundred animals. His petting zoo has been a fixture at the Orono Fair for the past 40 years. His reputation as an “animal whisperer” follows him wherever he goes. “You all come and participate at our Celebrity Hog Racing event. It’s a flag waving, tail waggin’ jolly good time for the whole family,” said LaSalle. The race begins with the “Call to the Post” plus the sound of a bell “and they’re off.” “Come watch Brittany Spareribs and Screaming Charlie Swine race to the finish line for Smarties. It’s not just racing hogs but a Down Home Hillbilly

show. Bring your camera to capture all the fun and stick around after the show to meet and greet some of the stars,” Lasalle said enthusiastically. There will be three shows at the fall fair on Saturday and three shows on Sunday. Each show will feature five races, the first will be pot bellied pigs, the second ducks and so on. Each race has four “critters” in the event and each needs three sponsors, (a chute sponsor, owner and trainer). If any individual, business or organization would like to sponsor a critter for a race or would like more details, they can contact Russell at <> or call 905-3447709.

Sump pumps reduce municipality’s ability to accommodate growth John Campbell

News - Trent Hills - Household sump pumps have been blamed for a substantial increase in wastewater flows in Warkworth in recent months. Figures contained in a report provided council last week showed almost 14,700 cubic metres of wastewater were collected in April, nearly twice as much as recorded a year earlier. “Staff are of the opinion that flows are directly related to sump pumps that remain connected to the system,” the report stated.

Roads and urban services manager Neil Allanson told council letters were sent out to 11 property owners asking them to disconnect and reminding them of the consequences should they continue to contravene a local bylaw. “It states we can charge them up to two times their monthly bill until they correct it, and then anything we have to do, they have to pay for that, too.” he said. “We don’t want to go down that road, we need to get the right language so they Please see “Sump” on page 11

NDHS guitar class jams with Willhorse By Bill Freeman

News - Norwood - It’s not every day high school musicians get to jam with a headline rock band from 2,000 miles away. But that’s exactly what the Norwood District High School guitar class did when highly touted Golden, B.C., rockers Willhorse pulled into Norwood for a high-energy gig at the Norwood Legion. It was a dream come true for teacher Jason Lean, a big Willhorse fan and champion, to give his students a chance to meet a band they’ve studied in class. It was doubly cool for Lean and his class because Willhorse bass guitarist Todd Menzies is a former NDHS student and part of the mu-

sic-mad 1990s coterie that included Three Days Grace bass player Brad Walst, former lead singer Adam Gontier and Art of Dying guitarist Cale Gontier. “It’s phenomenal,” said Lean, sporting a Willhorse tie and an I’ve-just-met-SidneyCrosby-like smile. “I never had a chance like this when I was in high school. I hope they understand how rare of an opportunity this is for them.” The class learned a couple of songs including Tempered Heart and Easy Girl and made a “little video” as a thank-you for what Willhorse has done for them. “We tried to get them into class but the tour just didn’t allow them to get here on

time. So we came to them,” Lean said. Willhorse put together a short eastern tour around their showcase show at Cherry Cola’s during Canadian Music Week gigging in Montreal, Ottawa then Peterborough before pulling into Norwood to perform along with Sarah Burton and Devon Bjornason of the Devon Coyote Trio. Lean likes Willhorse’s style which he calls “nice, bluesy rock. “Musically they’re just phenomenal. I can’t believe these guys aren’t a bigger band. I hope this absolutely blows up for them.” With a solid and growing fan base in western Canada, where they tour relentlessly and picked up a fifth place award in 2013 during the Peak Performance Project in Vancouver, and new territory in the east that could change. Learning to write music for guitar is part of the NDHS course and a “culminating” assignment with students re-

quired to write a chord progression with at least one key change. They get bonus marks if they add lyrics and a solo. “They go through creating their own idea through their instrument,” says Lean. They quickly learn how challenging that can be and appreciate the work of bands like Willhorse. “They think it will last five or ten minutes and we’re two-and-a-halfmonths in and I’ve got two kids who’ve got it done. It’s not the easiest thing in the world to do but once you’ve got it done you’ve got a lot of pride in it because you’ve put your heart and soul into it.” “It was amazing,” student Mitchell Rogers said. “I haven’t had a chance to play with a real band. It was really fun.” “It was really awesome to actually meet them because we’ve been practising their music,” Daniel Benjamin

Sign-up encouraged for trail tours

By Bill Freeman

News - Norwood - Organizers of the tours of Norwood’s Breathing Forest trail network just north of the village on June 3 encourage participants to sign up in advance for the afternoon and early evening sessions. The tours are part of the third annual International Trails Festival which is once again being celebrated locally with a variety of activities in Peterborough County and City organized by a coalition of sponsors that include the Otonabee Region Conservation Authority. In Norwood, morning tours

of the conservation area trail system are being organized for elementary and high school students. Additional tours are planned for 2, 4 and 7 p.m. Retired high school teacher Ron Scott is one of the day’s chief organizers. A former chair of the conservation authority and of the Otonabee Conservation Foundation, Scott has been instrumental in rejuvenating the substantial woodlot through ORCA’s Breathing Forest program. He’s long been a champion of conservation area and its potential as a hiking and nature

exploration destination for visitors and township residents. Calling it a “gem” in Norwood’s “crown of nature,” Scott sees its potential as another attractive reason to spend time in Asphodel-Norwood. “We have within the boundaries of our community a beautiful natural place comparable to any in the Kawarthas with unique geographical features, impressive vistas and quiet solitude,” he says. “A system of trails so close to the urban area of the village will promote healthy activity for all.” Scott hopes local health care providers promote the Trail Day and tours and keep them in mind when they talk to patients about outdoor activities within the community. The degree of difficulty of the trail system varies from very easy to extremely dif-

ficult, he says, but tour-goers can choose calling Scott at 705-639-2149. and act as a group leader at any time to leave the guided walk and Anyone who wants to can also contact Scott ahead return to the start base. A tour will take take training as a tour guide of time. around 45 minutes but could be double that if adventurous individual want to complete the entire trial system. He cautions hikers to come prepared because there is an abundance of poison ivy and the usual assortment of spring insects. They shouldn’t wear open-toed shoes or shorts and they should bring insect repellent and sunscreen. They will “follow the rules of nature exploration: leave only footprints, stay on the trails, and take only pictures.” Sign-up sheets can be found at the Norwood Holistic Centre, Wavelengths Yoga Studio, Cat Sass and Bowes and Cocks Real Estate.

understand what that’s doing to our system,” Mayor Hector Macmillan said. Allanson identified one problem area, Centre Street, where there used to be a swale in back of residences that served as a drainage ditch whenever there was a heavy downpour. However, it has largely been filled by the residents who have planted gardens and built rock gardens along its length. CAO Mike Rutter said “there were lots of things tried” to reduce wastewater flows at Warkworth but now sump pumps discharging rain water that’s leaked into basements are seen as being at the root of the problem. “The flows have been significantly higher than we would like,” whenever there is a substantial increase in rainfall or prolonged wet spell, he said. “We just can’t have that dramatic kind of an increase in flows; it just takes away capacity that we need for other things,” such as to accommodate development. “Our goal isn’t to penalize people, our goal is compliance so that’s what the letters are for,” Rutter said. “I don’t think people recognize the impact” sump pumps can have on restricting growth in the community, he said.

ArtWorth summer camp will help kids explore art and nature

Nine-year-old Ella Murphy of Warkworth is having her face painted at an event that was held next to Frantic Farms Clay and Glass to help promote ArtWorth, a two-week summer camp for kids ages seven to 13. The camp will take place July 14 to 25 and registrations are now being accepted. Caitlyn Rawn, face painting artist, attended the summer camp for a couple of years. Photo: Sue Dickens By Sue Dickens

News - Warkworth - “ArtWorth … Naturally” is the theme of the 2014 Trent Hills art camp that will bring a cornucopia of creativity to children and youth in Warkworth. “ArtWorth will be featuring an exploration of art in nature and nature in art; we invite kids to stretch their imaginations and explore their creativity through pottery, primitive toy building, tie dyed kite building, drawing and painting, creative movement and more,” said Trish York, local artist and project co-ordinator. “Every year we build on what we’ve done before,” York added. This is her ninth year affiliated with ArtWorth. “Last year we had a link with the seniors in town, we took garden villages that the kids made to Mill Creek Manor and the nursing home and the library,” she explained. “This year kids will be baking cookies and they will be judged by the seniors at Mill Creek Manor and they will be going there for games that same afternoon,” she explained. This year the youngsters will be connecting with the Abun-

dance Food Project, to learn how to make the cookies. The connection with seniors “made us look at our heritage too,” York added. ArtWorth includes a trip to Lang Pioneer Village providing the children with a chance to explore art from a pioneer perspective, with both demonstrations and hands on experience in soap making, blacksmithing, weaving, and smoke firing. “They will not only have a lot of interactive stuff to do but will also be making their own artefacts and smoke firing them there,” said York. The pottery they make at Frantic Farms Clay and Glass Gallery during the summer camp experience will be fired at Lang. The youngsters will also be building water wheels and learning to make paint from scratch and tinting it themselves. “They will also be learning to square dance and line dance … and on the last day we will have the Potter Band [George and Alice Potter] come to play the fiddle.” ArtWorth is Trent Hills’ first art camp for kids ages seven to 13 years.

Professional artists create this quality experience for children at the camp which provides a caring, fun, safe place for kids to learn and express themselves through the arts, York explained. The camp will be held from July 14 to July 25 based out of St. Paul’s United Church. The summer camp usually has about 30 youngsters register. A maximum of 40 can be accepted. Registration is available online or people can drop by Frantic Farms. The cost is $200 per week but there are bursaries available on an “as-needed basis.” ArtWorth gets its funding through registration fees with additional help from community sponsors for special projects. This year ArtWorth received support from the Warkworth Community Service Club, Cameco, and the Campbellford Seymour Community Foundation. “This is also a great opportunity for high school students to volunteer,” said York. They can earn their community hours by helping at the camp. For more information go to: <>.

News - Trent Hills - Friends of Ferris Park was quite happy telling people to “go fly a kite” at the 13th annual Kite Day held recently in a field just south of the provincial park entrance. “It was a beautiful day and we had 126 people come out to fly kites with their family and friends,” said Anne Kidd, a member of the Friends of Ferris board. “Some people brought their own kites, but everyone was able to decorate and fly kites made by the Friends of Ferris group,” explained Kidd. Everyone who decorated a kite had their name put into a draw for prizes. The grand prize draw winner was the Greg Chartrand family of Campbellford, who won a kite shaped like a twomasted ship which had been donated by Sylvia Rundle. “There were at least 14 volunteers from the community who came to

Enjoy dairy for good health

Nutrients in dairy products can be good for your health. To some people, dairyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation for contributing to high cholesterol and weight gain is a misconception thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to let go of. But dairyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s detractors should know the right dairy products enjoyed in moderation can actually be good for your health for a variety of reasons. Consuming dairy products as part of a nutrient-rich diet is important for individuals of all ages. Dairy products have many nutrients and vitamins essential to good health. Calcium, protein, phosphorus, potassium, and supplemented vitamins A and D are all nutrients the body needs. Calcium, for example, is necessary to build and maintain strong bones. Osteoporosis, a condition wherein the bones weaken and are more susceptible to injury, can affect anyone, but it is particularly common among women age 50 and older. The National Institutes of Health say as many as half of all women and a quarter of men older than 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis. To keep bones strong, health professionals recommend eating a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D -- both of which are found in dairy products. Eating low-fat dairy products can reduce a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s risk of developing cancer. Studies have shown that

populations that eat a high amount of calcium-rich foods have a lower incidence of colorectal cancer. According to child health authority Dr. Sears, calcium controls the multiplication of epithelial cells lining the colon. Fast multiplication of these cells increases a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s risk of developing cancer. The best sources of calcium include bony fish and dairy products like yogurt. Dairy products, especially milk, are also essential for different health benefits. Drinking milk helps protect the enamel surface of teeth against acidic substances. This helps prevent tooth decay and weakening enamel. Milk and other dairy products might also help maintain healthy skin. Dairy also plays a role in digestive health. Consumption of milk products may help in reducing acidity in the stomach. Yogurts with active cultures have been known to promote healthy digestion and alleviate occasional irregularity. Individuals with lactose intolerance, a food sensitivity where there are inadequate levels of lactase in the body necessary to break down the lactose sugar in dairy products, may avoid dairy foods. However, information from the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board says that those with

a lactose intolerance can still handle at least two cups of milk a day if taken with food and spread throughout the day. Research also indicates that consuming small amounts of lactosecontaining foods may improve lactose tolerance over time. Dairy products, like milk, cheese, yogurt, creams, and even ice cream, can provide much of the daily recommended allowances of vital vitamins and minerals. Low-fat dairy products are important components of a healthy diet.

Havelock community garden “squelched” for 2014 By Bill Freeman

News - Havelock - There will be no community garden in Havelock in 2014. Faced with a wave of NIMBY-like opposition and a council vote against developing a garden in the northwest corner of the municipally owned George Street Park, the Nourish Havelock Task Force will not go ahead with a project this year. “I think you’ve successfully squelched the community garden idea, certainly for this year,” a disappointed Nourish chair Les Morris said during a council meeting where the George Street location was rejected by council after it received five petitions against that site. In its motion against the site council again offered Nourish a location on Old Norwood Road. The George Street site was on the table after public opposition to townshiprecommended locations at Davidson Crescent and the Victoria Street Peterborough Housing complex eliminated those options. Council initially supported both sites as well as the George Street park. Council had earlier voted against Nourish Havelock’s preferred site behind the Havelock Medical Centre, offering instead a location off Old Norwood Road which the task force disapproved because it wasn’t central. “The most important part of the plan was to make the garden completely accessible,” said Morris. “This would mean that anyone could walk to it, take their families to it and anyone who was disabled would be able to take part.” With the project’s 2014 demise, Nourish will return $11,000 in grants and outside funding and another $10,000 in in-kind donations and equipment. “Havelock basically loses this $20,000 since we have run out of choices and time because of these constant delays,” said Morris. Nourish said the garden would “fit almost perfectly” in the 72-foot by 45foot section of the park but the anonymous petition falsely claimed access would be blocked. Others said the garden would deprive them of a shady area

to watch ball. “We’ve been rejected in several kinds of properties,” said Morris. “What concerns me is that when we settled on properties you are in charge of it didn’t work. The ball park was in no one’s back yard yet we succumb to a petition with people who are nowhere near the site.” “This is an anti to what the community is about and anti to what the garden is about,” said a disappointed Deputymayor Andy Sharpe who claimed the petition was presented in a “negative way” and included signatures from people who didn’t live in Havelock. “They don’t have a clue what’s going on with Nourish Havelock. I have a hard time with someone signing a petition and not knowing what’s going on. The wording is incorrect.” If the petition had been presented in a positive way about growing your own food “they would have understood,” Sharpe said. “This really stinks.” “Maybe I should have gone door-todoor and done a petition of my own,” said Morris. “There is a segment of the population in Havelock that is in favour but with your information it’s apparent the people in Havelock don’t want a garden. I can’t do anything about that. I’m sorry for that because it would have been such a great project.” Councillor Jim Martin said a community garden is a “great idea” but wondered what they were “doing wrong. “Why can’t we make this thing happen? Other communities have done it,” he said suggesting that perhaps a smaller demo garden might show opponents what it’s all about. “It’s nice to see a group get together and be so passionate about something. I really hope the group keeps working on this.” “I, too, have major concerns about why the community is at odds with this,” Mayor Ron Gerow said. “I think we’re at a stalemate and that’s very unfortunate. I support this but I find myself in a no-win situation. We asked for input and we received it.”

News - Campbellford - With tax season coming to a close, the Help Centre of Northumberland reports another very busy year for its Community Volunteer Income Tax Program. More than 1,400 returns were completed in March and April alone through the Help Centre and its team of volunteers. A total of 221 claims have been done for residents of Trent Hills to date, 84 through outreach clinics held here, and another 137 were done in the Cobourg office, again for Trent Hills residents. The Centre received a “generous” donation from the Rotary Club of Cobourg this year too. Rotary provided more than $4,300 to assist the small, non-profit agency to keep their Community Volunteer Income Tax Program running strong and providing outreach sessions to reach rural Northumberland residents. “We can’t thank the Rotary Club of Cobourg enough,” said Board Chair Krista Skutovich. “Rotary members really understood the need for this program locally, and recognized the huge economic spinoff effects it has in our county.” Last year the Help Centre assisted

with more than 1,700 income tax returns, which generated over $1.5 million in refunds to Northumberland residents, “a significant amount that is put back into the local economy”. The centre provides income tax preparation services year round for eligible residents, although the busiest times are March and April for tax season, and also July, for late filers that receive notice of interruption of Child Tax Benefits. Income tax preparation not only provides clients with the refunds they are entitled to, but it is also a necessary first step to access many other government programs and benefits, so this program is vital to assist clients with many other needs, explained Skutovich. “Without our income tax volunteers and groups like Rotary to donate project assistance, these types of muchneeded services just wouldn’t be possible. We are so grateful to Rotary for supporting this initiative.” The centre provides a range of services related to income and housing, and relies on donations and funding from groups like United Way, Rotary, and individual donors.

The centre is always looking for volunteers for a variety of programs. For more information on tax return assistance, to volunteer or donate, contact the centre at 905-372-2646 or toll free at 1-888-698-3382.

News - Campbellford - Campbellford District High School’s (CDHS) jazz bands brings home the gold again.

Recruitment committee hosts 12th annual med week minds, creating a greater appreciation among the students of the challenges and opportunities present in a rural medical practice and the rewards of living in a rural community. Medical students participating in med week include Ainsley Kempenaar (University of Toronto) from Stirling. She completed her undergrad in Kinesiology at Queen’s University. “I understand that rural medicine affords a deep level of connection to one’s community … which I highly value,” she said.

Laura Goodliffe (Queen’s University), originally from KitchenerWaterloo, completed her undergrad work in Biomedical Science at the University of Guelph and went on to obtain a Master’s in Public Health at U of T. Having spent a lot of years in academic centres, she is eager to get into the smaller community setting and start applying her skills. Nicholas Latham (Queen’s University), whose hometown is Brockville, attended the University of Guelph (BSc Biomedical Sciences) and the

University of Ottawa (MSc Cellular and Molecular Medicine). He “enjoys all sorts of athletics, camping, leisure activities and adventure.” In the future, he plans to pursue a career in ER/Family Medicine and/or Internal Medicine. Emily Lu (Queen’s) is from Toronto but she is ready to experience a rural community where she “can get hands-on, practical experience.” She said she is open to eventually practising in a rural or remote community, so Med Week will provide a peek into that possible future.

News - Campbellford - The Trent Hills Physician Recruitment and Retention Committee has been busy planning their 12th annual Rural Medicine Week, June 2 until 6, giving med students the opportunity to “Discover the Rural Heartbeat.” In a press release the committee explained that they will be hosting four students who will have completed their first year of medical school. These students will be exploring how primary health care is practised in a rural community. The experience is meant to open

Available in most new Ford vehicles with 6-month pre-paid subscription

Med Week’s kick-off party is on Sunday evening, June 1. It is also a doctor appreciation event for the physicians currently working in the community. The party sets the tone for the week allowing the students to meet some of the physicians and allied health preceptors with whom they’ll be working at Campbellford Memorial Hospital (CMH) and Trent Hills Family Health Team (THFHT). Dr. Bryan Fong, a Med Week participant from 2008, has returned to Trent Hills for two months of Family Medicine residency training. He will be the guest speaker at the Sunday event. The students will be living on a working farm during their stay. It’s an opportunity to highlight how the agricultural sector contributes to the local economy and to create understanding of how that that sector represents a patient population with unique needs for the rural physician. Students will be taking horseback riding lesson and visiting Campbellford District High School to speak to the senior science classes.

Empire Cheese improves factory accessibility doors, which are a boon to people “with their arms full. They’re going out, the door opens for them.” He said the work, some of which is still to be done, will cost around $70,000 in total, “probably a little bit more.” Empire Cheese “attracts a lot of people from around the area, [as well as] a lot of tourists,” said Northumberland-Quinte West MP Rick Norlock, who was thanked by Oliver for his help in obtaining the funding. “The grant accomplishes a lot of goals under one roof,” Norlock added, noting the improvements help “keep people working.” The fund, launched in 2007, has contributed to more than 1,100 projects that have enabled Canadians with disabilities to access

buildings, programs and services. Trent Hills has been the beneficiary of federal funding to make some of its buildings more accessible. “What it means to Trent Hills [is to make it] an all-inclusive community,” Mayor Hector Macmillan said. “I’ve always thought that protection of our last cheese factory in Northumberland County is important, especially because it’s in Trent Hills.” Oliver noted quite a few buses carrying elderly passengers often stop at Empire, while they’re en route to an event elsewhere or on a special shopping trip. “There are more buses all the time especially in the fall with fall tours,” he said. While the funding announcement was be-

Deputy-mayor lauds Friends of NDHS By Bill Freeman

News - Havelock - HavelockBelmont-Methuen Deputy-mayor Andy Sharpe applauded the work that the small voluntary Friends of Norwood District High School committee continues to do. “They’re a small group in Norwood but they’re paying attention to what’s going on at the school board and provincially,” said Sharpe, who sits in on their meetings as often as he can. “I don’t think there’s a crisis in Norwood at the moment but if ever there is and it comes up for review this group is paying attention early in the process,” Sharpe said. One of the things the group is watching closely is the provin-

cial election as well as this fall’s municipal election which also includes school board trustee positions; with that in mind they are encouraging people to ask candidates about party policies and their own opinions regarding small schools. “Please raise the issue of small schools,” Friends chair Verna Shackleton said. “Let us stay alert and see the direction that will come out of both elections.” Sharpe acknowledges that the Friends of NDHS has no authority but is a good forum for talking about the “positives” that make NDHS stand out. He praised a promotional video that was prepared by guidance department head Todd Murray and is shown

at public events and parent information evenings; the video is even available on You Tube. “Schools in Peterborough are coming out and doing presentations to our elementary schools,” said Sharpe. There is competition from Peterborough schools trying to recruit local elementary students to them; Kenner Collegiate’s International Baccalauereate program and the Thomas A. Stewart integrated arts program have drawn some Grade 8 students away from NDHS. Buses go to Peterborough but buses don’t come out to Norwood for any special programs, says Sharpe. Councillor Jim Martin said the

NDHS Wall of Honour is a prime example of what is good about NDHS but it should be promoted more heavily than it is. “There are a lot of good people who come out of that school and it’s hard to get on [the Wall],” Martin said. “That’s a thing that should be promoted,” he said. “That’s a thing that the Friends should have a discussion about as far as promoting the school.” Martin says that he’s nominated a candidate for the Wall of Honour.” “It’s about promotion,” Sharpe agreed. “It’s about exactly what you’ve been talking about and [the Friends] keep talking about that and making suggestions.”

ing made, a bus pulled up whose 21 passengers were residents of the Legion Village in Cobourg. They were making their annual shopping trek to Campbellford with stops that included Empire and World’s Finest Chocolate factory outlet. “If there was no accessibility we couldn’t come at all,” said Tammy Elder, the village’s social convenor.

Rocker “amazed” by high school guitar program my hand at the age of eight. It was just the teacher. He taught inside the box and taught the way he was taught to teach; that’s fine and good for a lot of people but for certain people who were maybe a little more artistic at that age and had already played guitar for years [it didn’t work]. Jason’s teaching outside the box and teaching them Willhorse songs and Three Days Grace and Art of Dying. “We all attended the same school so it’s relatable to these kids,” Menzies said. “They can see we all started there.” Menzies thinks it’s cool that he’s part of an NDHS musical legacy and that the young children of some of those musicians are starting to play instruments “and they have a little band and although they’re not fully playing music yet the idea’s there about brotherhood and bandship. “They see what we do and that we stick together and we’re on the road together and that’s a real brotherhood. Norwood can be a spot on the map of great musicians with more to come. With programs like this there will be.” “Those that are meant to play will always play and hopefully a lot of these students continue to play. At lunch we’d sit “QUALITY outside and play. BEYOND I always had a REPROACH” guitar. I took it everywhere with me and it’s still with me today. As long as you can get a cheap guitar in a pawn shop they can go far.”

News - Norwood - It’s a question no one can really answer but musician and former Norwood District High School student Todd Menzies still wonders how many more NDHS students would have stuck with music and gone on to professional careers if there’d been a guitar class at the school when he was there in the 1990s. As it stands, NDHS has done its fair share of populating the professional music scene with bands like Three Days Grace, My Darkest Days, Art of Dying, Citizen Hollow, The Detourists and Menzies’ own band Willhorse which is based in Golden, B.C., and making some major inroads into eastern Canada with two superb albums. There are also some solo artists carving out a place in the challenging musical marketplace. Having members of Jason Lean’s guitar class sit in with Willhorse during a sound check before its Norwood gig was “amazing,” Menzies said. “We didn’t have this when [I was at NDHS] and if we did you can easily think of how many more would have stuck with music,” he told The Independent. “It was amazing to see all those kids and they were right on time. We kind of broke it down and let them do their own thing. To be able to do that at that age. Talking to a few of them you could see it’s in them; that’s what they want to do.” They played Tempered Heart and Easy Girl together. It is ironic, Menzies says, that the only class he failed in high school was music. “It wasn’t because of me, because my dad was a musician and I had a guitar in

Cecchin named new chief of Stirling-Rawdon By Richard Turtle

News - Stirling - The municipality welcomed a new police chief earlier this week as ofďŹ cials from the Stirling-Rawdon Police Services Board announced the hiring of Canadian Policing veteran Dario Cecchin. The announcement was made Monday afternoon at the emergency services building by PSB Chair Tara Dyer, who was joined by several other municipal ofďŹ cials in welcoming the new head of the Stirling-Rawdon Police Service. Cecchin, who addressed the crowd of about 30 that included residents, municipal staff members, police and emergency ofďŹ cials as well as County Reeve Rick Phillips, says he is grateful for the

opportunity. Cecchin begins his duties as chief on June 9. Dyer noted the hiring process did not come without its share of delays, but added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;things moved along as quickly as I think they could have.â&#x20AC;? She also thanked the many people involved, including local residents, for their patience and professionalism during the transition. Mayor Rodney Cooney, who also sits on the PSB, welcomed Cecchin to the community noting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are looking forward to a new chapter in Stirling-Raw-

don policing history.â&#x20AC;? He also thanked Interim Chief Christina Rieve and the OPP for their support in recent months before introducing the serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest member. Cecchin comes to the municipality from Barrie, Ontario, but has served for 28 years as a police ofďŹ cer in various capacities from Alberta to Newfoundland. As well he has led numerous detachments, both urban and rural, with staff contingents ranging from eight to 210. Speaking from the podium in his ďŹ rst public address in the community, Cec-


chin he says he is very much looking forward to the move to Stirling-Rawdon and getting to know the community. And while he admits he still has to â&#x20AC;&#x153;get a lay of the land,â&#x20AC;? his ďŹ rst impressions have been entirely positive. Sergeant Jim Orr also welcomed the new chief on behalf of the StirlingRawdon Police Association, offering his congratulations. Of his appointment Cecchin noted,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;being chief of police is certainly an honour and a career achievement,â&#x20AC;? adding he intends to remain in the position for at least ďŹ ve years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still have a few more years to work,â&#x20AC;? he says. He and his wife, Elaine, who is currently at home preparing the house for sale, plan to sell their home in Barrie and purchase a property in Stirling-Rawdon, Cecchin says.

Joan Wilkinson is one of several individuals behind the new Stirling venture, Antiques, Art and Collectables at the Station. The former transportation link, and now home of the Stirling Rotary Club, also features the local tourist information centre. By Richard Turtle

News - Stirling - Although now out of service as a transportation link, the historic Grand Trunk train station is continuing to offer a look back at local history while celebrating many present day attractions in the area. As a result of the coming together of a group of artists, historians and antique collectors, the station has reopened this spring as a multi-faceted warehouse of memories and information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just one thing, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many things,â&#x20AC;? says Joan Wilkinson, who is one of several individuals involved in the collective venture ofďŹ cially known as Antiques, Art and Collectables at the Station. As well as offering items for sale, ranging from original artwork to antiques, toys and clothes, the station is also the home to a tourist information centre with regular hours and listings of events and points of interest as well as maps and brochures from throughout the region. Open from Wednesday to Sunday, hours may be extended as the season continues, she says. The site is also home of the Stirling Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market, with the antique shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ofďŹ cial opening coinciding with the launch of a new market season on May 3. Currently, Wilkinson notes, the station is open to visitors from Wednesday to Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Sundays from 1-3 p.m. And trafďŹ c has been steady, she says, with visitors so far this year arriving for any one of a number of different reasons, including as part of special events or bus tours. Some have travelled a signiďŹ cant distance simply to see the iconic architecture, while others have an interest in local

history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come here to shop at all. They just want to have a look around,â&#x20AC;? she says. A subcommittee of the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Economic Development Committee has also been struck to explore the possibilities of expanding on the idea, Wilkinson notes. And while the store is well stocked with inventory, and fully operational, there is still plenty of work left to do, Wilkinson adds. An unďŹ nished section of the building, that now houses many of the artifacts and furniture previously used there, will be reopened for public viewing as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to catalogue all the train-related [items] and as you can see thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot to go through,â&#x20AC;? she notes. Items in storage range from hand tools to railroad signs and include a large records desk and a bench from the stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old waiting room. So far, she adds, support has been readily available but many remain unaware of the project or its scope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a collective thing,â&#x20AC;? she says of the many individuals involved, adding there is still room for a few more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for someone who reďŹ nishes furniture,â&#x20AC;? she says, adding there are many other artists and artisans already taking part. Those who have their items up for sale are required to pay rent and commit to one day per week working at the store. In exchange, they retain all of the money from their own sales, Wilkinson explains. And with the absence of a local historical society, which disbanded in recent years, Wilkinson says the goal is to re-establish an interest in local history while promoting other attractions from Bancroft to Picton and all stops in between.

County lays groundwork for new planning regime with official plan the county (Brighton, however, is looking to retain that responsibility, which Cobourg, Port Hope and Trent Hills were given at the same time PRMPA was formed.) The CAOs of Cramahe, Alnwick-Haldimand and Hamilton have expressed an interest in sharing planning services with the county, which two days later, on May 22, approved creating the position of a manager of planning, to meet its obligations under the Planning Act once the new official plan is in place. All seven of Northumberland’s municipalities will shoulder a portion of the cost the county will take on once it assumes its new planning role, Savill said. According to a draft budget that’s been put together, “PRMPA municipalities could be looking at cost savings” of as much as 50 per cent under the new arrangement, she said. Municipalities will be charged fees for additional services provided beyond the baseline but

many of those would be passed on to a developer or applicant for a subdivision, Savill pointed out. “It’s still important that those fees be as low as possible when we’re accommodating development,” she added. Savill stressed to council members “the work that is currently being done will continue to be done at your level … This is replacing the work that the PRMPA planner might have been doing.” Councillor Ed Van Egmond asked if the new structure would remove council’s ability “to oppose something that is brought forward from the county.” Savill said “the idea is to work very, very closely with staff and ensure the issues are resolved before they become confrontational, so very rarely would we anticipate having differences of opinion because we’re all working from the same document.” Cramahe council went along

with the recommendation from the Pine Ridge Municipal Planning Authority Board that it be dissolved. “This makes perfect sense,” Mayor Marc Coombs said of the new planning structure being fashioned. Savill said discussions on an agreement for contracted planning services will continue with a view to having one be in place by August if it’s found to be “in the best interests” of both the member municipality and the county. “We would be in a position then to ensure that we hired the right person to handle the contracts as well as the other planning responsibilities that will come to the county,” she said. Northumberland “may look at contracting out a planner rather than hiring” one, Lovshin said. “We’re just not sure what that financial impact might be,” Savill said later, as the options are a fullor part-time position or a contract position.

Ontario ParaSport Games in Northumberland News - Cramahe Township - The Ontario ParaSport Games make their Northumberland County debut May 30, after months of preparations involving hundreds of volunteers. “We’re all excited, enthusiastic, we just can’t wait [for them to begin],” Games chair Paul Macklin told council May 20 when he and county director of economic development and tourism Dan Borowec appeared as a delegation. They were there to ask permission for a road closure to accommodate the handcycling road race trials that will have Colborne as their starting point May 31. Handcycling is one of eight sports for people with physical disabilities that will be held in venues across the county. The others are amputee golf, blind golf, boccia, para-equestrian, sledge hockey, wheelchair basketball, and wheelchair rugby. Approximately 350 athletes and supporters are expected to turn out. National training camps and tryouts for sitting volleyball, para soccer, paracycling and paratriathlon will also be taking place in Northumberland next week.

Preparing for the games has been a massive undertaking and “there have been moments when you needed a good sense of humour,” Macklin said. “We are obviously quite thrilled that we’ve got to this point … [and] we’re really pleased that all the major issues have been resolved.” Admission to the sporting events is free; to find out when and where they will be played go online to <www.2014parasportgames. ca/en/Index.asp>. Tickets to attend the opening ceremonies are $20 apiece. The celebration will get under way at 7 p.m. May 30 at the Cobourg Community Centre. Canadian singer-songwriter Alan Frew, of Glass Tiger, whose song, I Believe, was the official song of the 2010 Winter Olympics, will be the headliner. The evening will include a video directed at visitors “to make sure that everybody knows where Northumberland is and how wonderful this place is to live, work and play,” Macklin said. People “laughed when we said one of the sports that we have is blind golf,” he said, but wait until you see them in action, “they are amazing.” The athletes “will be

putting on quite a show for us,” he said. “If we don’t get inspired by them … to do more, and engage ourselves in recreational activities, with all the facilities that we have in the county. I’ll be surprised. That’s an important part of what’s going on.” Macklin encouraged spectators to talk to the athletes, “they’re not going to be isolated.” Borowec said the handcycling time trials will take place between 8 and 11 a.m., with the starting point being outside the municipal office building. A road race will held the next day out of Brighton.

The Campbellford Lions raised approximately $6,500 at their eighth annual Purina Walk for Guide Dogs May 25, one of more than 200 walks that are held as fund raisers across Canada. Among those taking part in the walk around the canal were Kirsten Matheson, on the left, with Hailey, and Heather Rowan, with Emma. All of the money raised goes to the Lions Foundation of Canada to support its six dog guide training programs. The dogs allow Canadians with disabilities, such as impaired hearing or vision, autism and epilepsy, to live safely and independently. It costs about $25,000 to train and place each animal with qualified applicants and the Lions Foundation does not receive any government funding. Photo: John Campbell

News - Cramahe Township - The process has begun to dismantle the Pine Ridge Municipal Planning Authority (PRMPA) that has served the townships of Cramahe, Alnwick-Haldimand, and Hamilton, and the Municipality of Brighton since the 1990s. Its dissolution is necessary in order to make way for the adoption of an official plan for the whole of Northumberland County by next March, as mandated by the provincial government. Elizabeth Savill, CAO for the county, explained the steps that are being followed in a presentation to Cramahe council May 20, accompanied by Hamilton Township Mayor Mark Lovshin, chair of the planning authority. Savill said the municipalities will still be responsible for processing and making decisions on consents, minor variances and zoning bylaw amendments but approval of subdivisions and conditions will be delegated to

Golden throw gives Saarah COSSA title By Bill Freeman

Sports - Belleville - You can add Saarah Rivera’s name to the list of illustrious athletes at Norwood District High School who have won COSSA javelin titles. The young NDHS athlete smashed her personal best throw and eclipsed the field by almost five metres to take the gold medal at the Central Ontario track and field finals in Belleville. The javelin championship sends Saarah on to the Eastern Regional finals this week at the Terry Fox Athletic Facility in Ottawa along with Gavin Woodburn, Owen Wright, Mike Yarema, Colin Van Den Hurk and Hayden Baptie who also placed in the top five at COSSA. Hayden earned bronze in the midget 100-metre hurdles with Colin also picking up bronze in the midget 300-metres where Gavin placed a close fourth.

Owen (junior high jump) and Mike (senior shot put) placed fourth in their respective events. In all NDHS had 19 individual athletes compete in 32 events along with four relay teams. For Saarah, it was day when everything went right but she still didn’t expect to do that well. “I had confidence but I was not sure that I would do that good,” she told The Independent. “People were cheering and they knew I could if I tried my hardest.” She came in with a 20.66-metre seed and smashed that with a megathrow of 29.33 early in the final. No one else came close with secondplace finisher Vanessa Willis of Prince Edward Collegiate posting a 24.55 throw. Ally Proulx of St. Peter’s placed third with 23.8 and Anna Dlugosz of Holy Cross was fourth at 22.45 metres.

“I just went out there and stayed calm and did my best,” Saarah said. “I was surprised, I was not expecting that good of a throw.” During the competition she quickly found that sweet groove athletes strive for. “Once you get into the mode it’s just go for it.” The Eastern Regionals will be even more competitive but Saarah promises to leave it all on the field. “I will try my hardest and see what happens.” Colin placed third in the 300 hurdles with a time of 56.64, below his Kawartha championship time of 51.90. Murdock Seigner of East Northumberland placed first at 48.28. Gavin was fourth with a time of 58.45 seconds. In the 100 hurdle final Hayden crossed the line at 17.64 behind Seigner (15.30) and Kavan Dobos of

Cobourg (17.12). Owen’s jump of 1.60 metres put him fourth behind Alex Alderman of Trenton High (1.65), Aiden Girduckis of St. Theresa (1.65) and Jayden Hamilton of St. Paul, Trenton (1.65). Mike threw his shot 12.30 metres finishing behind Dominic Comeau of Marc Garneau (12.92), Jeff Radfield of Moira (12.82) and Chris Post of Centre Hastings (12.52). Placing eighth was Travis Bennett in the senior javelin, with seventh place finishes by Baptie, midget javelin and Yarema, senior javelin. Just missing a qualification in their events were Woodburn, 100-metre hurdles; Nic Buchanan, midget javelin and Jacob Bennett, senior discus. NDHS finished twenty-fourth overall out of 32 schools with 54.5 points.

Flying Club celebrates with Hall of Famer

By Richard Turtle

Events - Stirling - There are a lot of people who love to fly, but perhaps none as much as Fern Villeneuve. The Oak Hills Flying Club celebrated its 50th anniversary last weekend joined by pilots, aircraft enthusiasts and the club’s most distinguished member, Villeneuve, who has been flying for more than 60 years and was named to the Canadian Aviation Hall of Fame in 2006. Villeneuve says his 30-year membership with the Oak Hills club came to an end about a year ago and only because he moved from the area to Guelph, Ontario. But he was more than happy to hop in his plane and make the flight from his new home airport last weekend to join in the celebration. Oak Hills Flying Club President Rob Burns says the midday Sunday event was extremely well attended and the club was privileged to have Villeneuve among those in attendance. “He started the Golden Hawks in 1959, to mark 50 years of flight in Canada,” Burns explains of the club’s special guest while pointing out pictures on the walls, adding Villeneuve spent a storied career and attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel while with the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). A 32-year member of the RCAF, Villeneuve is now well into his 80s and remains both modest about his aerial accomplishments and passionate about planes, conceding much of what transpired was a matter of course as a

Fern Villeneuve has been flying for more than 60 years, spending 30 of those as a member of the Oak Hills Flying Club. Villeneuve, who founded the RCAF aerobatic team The Golden Hawks, was inducted into the Canadian Aviation Hall of Fame in 2006.

CFB Trenton pilot doubles as country music star

By Stephen Petrick

Entertainment - Belleville - John Landry has a pretty successful history as a country musician, but now that he’s a search and rescue pilot based at CFB Trenton his career is really taking off. Landry has just released his fourth studio album, and over the last 15 years he has garnered numerous music awards, including Juno nominations for Top Country Male Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Video of the Year. The new album is called Don’t Look Back and it’s a somewhat fitting title

for an artist whose life has taken many interesting twists and turns. Unlike previous albums, like his debut record Forever Took Too Long, this album was completed while he was juggling employment with the Canadian Forces as a member of 424 Search & Rescue Squadron, which flies a Griffin helicopter. At one point Landry worked exclusively as a country musician. He even lived for part of the last decade in Nashville, where he worked many showcase events that he would invite

record company executives to, hoping to land a big American contract. But, fully aware of the changes in the music industry—and the fact that only mega-famous artists seem to draw strong record sales—he decided to come home to Canada and train for another profession; one that would be more ideal for he and his then-girlfriend (and now wife) to raise a family on. “My best friend Rich Baker [who collaborates on songs with Landry] came to me one day and said you know the air force has opened up a pilot

program … I said, what the hell, let’s go to a recruitment centre.” Landry had long been interested in a career in the air force. Before launching a music career, he joined the infantry in Montreal as a teenager. That job took him on the path to become a critical care flight medic, a job that allowed him to travel around the world. If the recruiters knew of that background when he walked into the recruitment centre in Kitchener that day, they might not have dismissed him so quickly.

“Two of them at the front desk recognized me and they were like, ‘What are you doing?’ When they took us seriously finally, we started the process. It’s a year-long process just to get accepted into the program.” Landry, now 44, was 37 at the time. He says it was a daunting experience to rejoin the military at that age and go through rigorous training, which included long jogs. Upon completing the extensive program, which included pit stops in Please see “Trenton pilot” page B2

Jimmy Rankin to play Empire Theatre June 4 Entertainment - Belleville - Another great musical act is coming to the Empire Theatre next week. Canadian legend Jimmy Rankin is set to perform on Wednesday, June 4. The singer-songwriter is currently touring across Canada to promote his new

album Back Road Paradise. The album features 12 new Rankin compositions, including lead-off single Cool Car and duets with Grammy winner and bluegrass icon Allison Krauss, as well as Blue Rodeoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jim Cuddy. Twenty-ďŹ ve years into a career

of what he does: smart lyrics, great vocals, perfectly crafted songwriter material, couched in a bigger, modern country sound. Above all, it is still Jimmy, that familiar voice, homespun and heartfelt, capable of taking you to the deepest emotions, or the best party. Rankin also strives for honesty, and making a direct connection to his listeners. He has the common touch. His songs resonate with everyone because he sings about life the way we all know it, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s falling in love, building a family, or just wanting to have a party with friends on a Friday. His magic is to put what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking and wondering and worrying about into a song, as catchy as can be.

The air was buzzing over Stirling last weekend as the Oak Hills Flying Club celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a barbecue and fly-in.

of Fame less than a decade ago, he adds, was never a consideration until it actually happened. “It was a real honour,” he notes quietly of the recognition, adding, “I was just having a great time flying.” And today is little different. There were many other like minds nearby, all with significantly less experience but equal appreciation for the skies. Burns says perfect weather was in part responsible for the arrival of both local and out-of-town visitors who came by both air and land. The large crowds, busy airstrip and near constant flow of traffic to and from the Stirling Airport on Sunday made for a busy day for volunteers who kept the barbecues hot and welcomed the arrival of new guests. “It’s been great,” says Burns of the day’s events. “We have them flying in, driving in, arriving on motorcycles, we’ve even had some walk in.” Visitors, he says, included members of other flying clubs as well as automobile and motorcycle clubs, many of whom had their vintage vehicles on display. And in marking the flying club’s 50th year, there was also plenty of opportunity to share thoughts on wheels and wings as well as get a closer look at some vehicles that predate the club itself. “It was started in 1964,” Burns says of the club. And while the membership and nearby airport facilities have changed markedly over that time, the collective passion for flight has remained a constant.

Part of the profits from the challenge are donated to the Canadian Cancer Society, says Mr. Langridge, â&#x20AC;&#x153;in Derek Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. He was a competitor who passed away from cancer so we decided to do that for him. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much a non-profit event, and we need the sponsors to keep us going, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for

(a wood chopping competition) and chainsaw throwing. The chainsaws have their bars and chains removed and are available in different weights for men and women. Chainsaw manufacturers also sponsor contests which require more precise cutting

and offer â&#x20AC;&#x153;good prizes, in the $60 to $70 rangeâ&#x20AC;? Mr. Langridge reported. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wyatt Davis Memorial Award which is given for overall participation and sportsmanship went to Wes Greenwood of Peterborough. Mr. Langridge is already thinking of innovations for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenge and notes that he and friends will be putting on a smaller scale show at the Hollyrood Country Jamboree in July.

Exploring a ghost town in the Canadian Rockies

An air-powered locomotive and coal cars remain in Bankhead.

Lifestyles - While in Banff National Park, I visited Bankhead, which was once a thriving coal town but is now simply an abandoned ghost town, with just a few reminders of its past remaining. The Bankhead Mine was opened in 1903 and operated by the Pacific Coal Company, a subsidiary of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The mine was located within Rocky Mountains Park (now Banff National Park), and the CPR leased the land. Some highgrade anthracite coal deposits had been discovered, so the mine was opened to fuel the CPR’s steam engines. As time passed, more and more people worked here, and the town of Bankhead was born in 1905. The town eventually had a population of about 1,000, and there was a church, school, boarding house, restaurant, hotel, pool hall, and several residential homes and saloons. There was even a Chinatown for the Chinese labourers. All the buildings were owned by the company, and the residents paid rent. There were about 300 men working underground, getting the locomotive fuel; later, some of the coal from this

mine was mixed with pitch and moulded into briquettes and used as home heating fuel. The mine, located on the edge of Cascade Mountain, was in production from 1903 to 1922, but then it was closed. It’s not clear whether this closure was a result of the recent strikes or it just no longer was deemed an appropriate activity within the park, but in the summer of 1922, notices of the closure were posted and the coal operations ceased. A written report published at the time concluded that after July 15, 1922, “Bankhead will be a dead town so far as coal mining is concerned.” The tunnel entrance was blasted shut, the town abandoned, and the town’s buildings mostly removed; some of the houses were moved to Banff, the church went to Calgary, and the Bankhead Railway Station now sits on the grounds of the Banff Hostel on Tunnel Mountain Road. Indeed, Bankhead was a dead town and it virtually disappeared. I visited what remains of this old mining site near Banff, and I first stopped at what’s now the Upper Bankhead parking lot, on the Minnewanka Loop Road. Here

I found a hiking trail that led through a thickly forested area and ascended, via an old fire access road, past some of the remnants of this mining operation. However, I found that this was a rather long, tough climb, and I didn’t see much except trees for quite a while. Eventually I passed the skeletal remains of a couple of buildings and, as I continued to climb, I passed several fenced holes which were once air vents for the mine shafts below. I then simply turned around and descended back to the parking lot (making this a round trip of about four kilometres. After that, I discovered a far more interesting hiking trail at the Lower Bankhead parking lot. It was a shorter, less strenuous interpretive hiking trail with several informative plaques, and it took me on a very interesting exploration of what’s left of this once thriving mining site. I discovered that several building foundations were still very visible although now becoming overgrown with weeds and shrubs and trees had now taken firm root inside what was left of an abandoned coke oven. I saw

several pieces of piping, concrete slabs, and rusted artefacts. I also found several heaps of abandoned coal slag, with some wild rhubarb growing nearby where former residents had probably had a garden. I saw what was left of the original Lamp House where the miners would get their lamps before descending into the dark mine and the Breaker Building. I also found a building that had been left intact in this ghost town, and it contained displays that could be viewed through its windows. There was also a compressed air locomotive with several coal cars still on display along the footpath, and I read a plaque that explained that each of these cars would’ve carried about two tons of coal and that there were up to 30 cars to a train. In its heyday, this mine could have put out about 400 carloads per day. Since I was walking through what was left of an old mining operation, I found a warning sign posted, for abandoned mines can pose some dangers. I was told to “not approach any opening” and to “stay on the trail”.

It’s a rather eerie feeling to walk through the abandoned town site of Bankhead, but it’s historically interesting

and no collecting or artefact removal is permitted here. The trail is kept open and maintained by Park Services.

News - Tweed - Kevin Callan returned to Tweed recently to share some beautiful pictures and at times harrowing stories from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once Around Algonquin,â&#x20AC;? a tale of an â&#x20AC;&#x153;epicâ&#x20AC;? canoe trip through some of the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most difďŹ cult terrain. Callan was the latest guest speaker/author in the Friends of the Tweed Library speaker series and his talk drew an audience of nearly forty interested people, all or most of whom it turned out had visited Algonquin Park at least once. Kevin decided in 2013 to attempt â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Meanest Link,â&#x20AC;? a route of legendary difďŹ culty. The journey covers 350 kilometres, 55 lakes, six rivers and almost 100 portages totalling 68 kilometres. It was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;silly tripâ&#x20AC;? Callan remarked. He and fellow canoeist Andy Baxter completed the route in 20 days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I looked at this thing called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the meanest link.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It was developed in 2004 by Algonquin OutďŹ tter staff because they found their young staff werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going out that much anymore and they had to entice them. So they developed this route that connects all the OutďŹ tter stores and called it the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;meanest linkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insane,â&#x20AC;? observed Callan, recalling the 93 portages and rivers which had to be traversed heading up stream. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually done as a race and the record is seven and a half days. I allocated myself 20 days because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not for me. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do it fast, I wanted to spend a long time out there.â&#x20AC;? Callanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friend Andy hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looked at the maps heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d forwarded to him and when he saw how difďŹ cult the route was, his ďŹ rst comment was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to kill you.â&#x20AC;? Starting from Huntsville the pair headed up the Big East River, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the most difďŹ cult part of the route.â&#x20AC;? The river becomes so shallow one must walk it, pulling the canoes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we did for four days.â&#x20AC;? The son of another paddler they met broke his foot on the rocky riverbed and had to be airlifted out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started off along the west end of Algon-

white pines and bugs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve experienced mosquitoes a lot but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never experienced them as bad as last year in Algonquin Park. I felt better when I spoke to a local guy who was born there and he said he had never seen then so bad.â&#x20AC;? Sitting in their bug shelter [â&#x20AC;&#x153;we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have done the trip without itâ&#x20AC;?] Kevin and Andy considered giving up a trip that was no longer much fun. They decided to continue after watching a snapping turtle climb a hill for 27 minutes only to fall back to

the bottom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our life is better than his, we should continue,â&#x20AC;? they concluded. Callan recounted seeing 29 moose on their expedition, running into a band of unfriendly survivalist types, and ending their journey in Huntsville in the middle of a bathtub race. His talk included a 20-minute video of their journey, Once Around Algonquin. He concluded, â&#x20AC;&#x153;nobody who has done the whole route has done it again, or wants to.â&#x20AC;?

quin. You look at the map and see all these tiny lakes that nobody goes to. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go there. For three days we averaged six kilometres of portages a day.â&#x20AC;? Callan has an established media presence with a number of national magazine and ďŹ lm awards. He teaches environmental issues and science at Sir Sandford Fleming College and stayed in touch with social media with the use of a satellite telephone and Ipad on his trip. Because he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing his trip traditionally with a cedar canvas canoe and no food drops he was castigated by a group of ďŹ ve on-line critics who called him â&#x20AC;&#x153;Luciferâ&#x20AC;?

Turtles healed and released

Trish Vander Ploeg found this turtle last year with the shell badly broken. After a year of care at the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre it was returned to her for release along with its baby.

News - Madoc Township Readers will recall an article last week about Paddy the snapping turtle appearing at a fund raiser in Campbellford for the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre.

As a direct result of the trauma centre, two painted turtles and a baby were returned to Madoc Township over the weekend. Local resident Sam Conroy is a volunteer “turtle taxi driver.”

Conroy received a call from the Kawartha centre (KTTC) to pick up two turtles from two different locations last year. Trish Vander Ploeg lives on Pigden Road. When she was out for a walk last June she passed a badly injured turtle on the road. “Three quarters of its shell was cracked. I scooted it into the grass.” She said it seemed rather hopelessly injured. When she returned home she felt she had to do something; with gloves and box, she made the trek back to get it. After a few calls she reached the “Turtle hot line.” “That evening Sam showed up, and, now, almost a year to the day we are releasing the same turtle with a baby. It’s just wonderful.” About the same time Conroy picked up a turtle from Larry Gagnon near Eldorado. Both turtles spent close to a year in rehabilitation at the KTTC. The one Vander Ploeg found was a female. Conroy says she was found to bear eggs. One of those eggs survived and hatched. Conroy explained painted turtles do not begin breeding until about eight years of age. The one Gagnon found was a feisty male wanting desperately to get back to his place of origin. Turtle crossing signs are available for municipalities to post in strategic areas. Quinte Conservation Authority provided three for Centre Hastings, but they were refuted by the Ministry of Transport who said signs must come from them and be approved for setting up.

Madoc Township clerk Bill Lebow said there are no turtle crossing signs in the municipality, but the strip of Highway 62 from Riggs Road north to about Hazzards Road is a prime turtle crossing area he noted. Eight species of turtles are native to this area. Two are endangered, three are threatened, the snapping turtle and northern map turtle are both species of “special concern.” The painted turtle is not yet listed. The Kawartha centre is the only one of its kind in Ontario, and funded by donations. It is affiliated with the Riverview Park and Zoo, Peterborough. Information can be found on the Internet at <>. If you find an injured turtle and can safely pick it up, place it carefully into a well-ventilated plastic container with a tight lid and call KTTC at 705-7415000.

Founder’s award highlights juried photo competition By Sue Dickens

News - Warkworth - Images captured with the lens of a camera hung on the walls of a downtown shop here as shutterbugs gathered to learn who had won prizes in the 2014 Juried Photography Competition hosted by the lilac festival committee. Photos of everything from a kingfisher to a beaver renovating his home were hung on the wall and offered for sale. The Founder’s Award was the first to be presented. Festival founder David Rollins selected a photo of a lilac bud by Norma Keith of Baltimore called “Bursting at the Seams” for the award. It was sponsored by the Warkworth

Community Service Club and presented by Chuck Mills. “Because it’s a lilac festival I couldn’t resist the lilac bud,” he said. Judging for the day was done by Bob Perks, an internationally known photographer and director/cinematographer. He started his career as an artist and graphic designer and became creative director of Art Associates, one of the most awarded and largest art studios in Toronto in the 1960s. After a move to New York he worked in a major agency on accounts such as Covergirl and Noxzema. In the 1970s he moved to Los Angeles and a chance to work in the film industry and consequently opened his own company directing major com-

mercials for corporations worldwide. These days having travelled with all his film gear over the years he finds it fun to travel with just a single camera over his shoulder. “I don’t like criticizing people’s work because I think it’s subjective so I pick things based on emotion and I spent my whole career working emotionally with great success,” Perks told the photographers before announcing the winners. First prize went to Roger Leekam of Toronto, for his photo called “Loon with Newly Hatched Chicks.” It was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Campbellford and presented by club president Jim Ashman. Second prize winner was Nancy

Cockburn of Peterborough for her photo “Spring Swingin’ Joy” and it was sponsored by Weaver Family Funeral Homes. Third prize went to Sandra G. Johnston of Campbellford for her photo “Blue Heron.” It was sponsored by the Campbellford Lions Club and presented by Andy Bastedo. The People’s Choice Award “was a squeaker,” said Maureen O’Grady who organized the photo contest. Jennifer Gibson of Warkworth won with 47 votes for her photo of a small frog on a daffodil called “Spring Peeper.” Mary Macfarlane of Keene was runner-up with 45 votes for her photo of a beaver working on his dam which

she called “Spring Renovations”. “Both of these photos caught the eye of visitors and both prints sold at the festival,” said O’Grady. The youth prize was won by Jasmine Beamish of Hastings for her photo “Weiner Dog in Lilacs,” sponsored by the Campbellford Lioness Club and presented by Andrea Conte. “I just think the student’s photo which has the lilacs and the dog in it … it’s just a cute thing and it’s light and airy and I just thought it was a wonderful picture,” said Perks. Runner-up was Madeline Ivy Cockburn Adams of Peterborough with her photo “Last Summer’s Garden,” sponsored by Snapshots One Hour Photo.

Quinte Children’s Water Festival celebrated By Kate Everson

News - Batawa - The Batawa Ski Hill was the site for the Quinte Children’s Water Festival on May 21 and 22 with over 950 students from Grades 3 to 5 from various schools participating. “This is the fifth year for the water festival,” said Marilyn Bucholtz, communications and outreach co-ordinator for Lower

Trent Conservation. There were students from schools in Stirling, Frankford, Trenton, Kingston, Belleville, Ameliasburgh, Cherry Valley, Picton, Deseronto, Grafton and Batawa as well as Tyendinaga Mohawk Reserve. Groups rotated through 32 stations to learn about water conservation, technology and science. They were assisted

by representatives from Ministry of Natural Resources, Quinte West Fire Department, OPP and students from Trenton High School’s Outer Limits program as well as Grade 6 to 8 from Batawa Sacred Heart Catholic School. “The level of professionalism from all the students assisting with this event is amazing,” Bucholtz commented.

Community involvement has also been important to the success of the program since 2009. Key sponsors of the event include Lower Trent Conservation, Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan, Batawa Ski Hill, Batawa Development Corporation, Ontario Power Generation, Children’s Water Education Council and RBC Blue Water Project. A cheque was presented from local sponsor RBC for $5,000. The RBC Blue Water Project has supported the festival for the past four years. On hand to present the cheque were Belleville branch manager Vicki Vannieuwenhuyze and Trenton branch manager Kim Tassé. Lower Trent Conservation general manager Glenda Rodgers accepted the cheque with thanks. The festival is organized by Lower Trent Conservation, Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan, Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board, Quinte Conservation and Batawa Ski Hill. Activities included finding out firsthand how much water is wasted in a shower, toilet or brushing your teeth. The good ol’ days were back with children trying to wash clothes with a wash tub and scrub board. Digging up a dinosaur was also part of the adventure at the Dino Dig, showing that the same

water millions of years ago is still used today. Species at risk display from the Kawartha Trauma Centre showed how to identify each type of turtle using true scale models. Sisters of the Drum taught the sacredness of water from aboriginal drumming of the Anishinabe. The Ministry of Natural Resources had children feel the furs of local animals and see a display of

creatures and tools seized by Conservation Officers. The Quinte West fire department Batawa had its pumper truck on site to teach children about the importance of water in fire safety. A water cycle relay race had children racing through tires to fill buckets of water. All 32 stations had more than enough to stir the children’s interest and have fun at the same time.

Courtney Lambert from St. Michael’s in Belleville is off to the races in a relay game learning about the water cycle. Photo: Kate Everson
