Hauntingly good time in Norwood
By Sue Dickens
News - Campbellford - “It’s 2013 and we are all here to celebrate, not just the legacy of all those 531 Grand Rd. • 705-653-1210 members who served in this club over this span of time but the legacy of Lionism we share today.” Those are the words of Past International Director Lions Clubs International Gil Constantini, special guest at the 60th anniversary celebrations of the Campbellford Lions Club. The hall at the curling club here was ﬁlled with ARE YOU READY? Lions and Lioness representatives from many the clubs in the area including Belleville, Brighton, Frankford, Havelock, Napanee, Norwood, Sharbot Lake, Trenton and Millbrook. About 120 members spent last Sunday afternoon socializing prior to awards and cutting of the anniversary cake. “Melvin Jones [founder of the Lions in the U.S. in 1917] and the group of men who surrounded him never dreamt what Lions would ever be, never dreamt of what it is today,” said Constantini. Preparing for an In 1953 when the club was formed in emergency.

CAO search begins in HBM

process which she’ll happily assist in. “After all these years I still believe in public service. It was always something I wanted to do,” Reed said in an interview. “I decided to go into this sector because I thought it would be easier to make some changes from within as opposed to sitting on the outside and criticizing. Please see “Retiring” page 3

Township’s long-term-care project will be “success story,” CAO says “We struggled. Mayor Ayotte and I worked diligently to get money and it took longer than expected,” Reed recalled during an interview. The funding did ﬁnally arrive and the improvements were made and people see the beneﬁts of the work that was done but “they don’t remember the time it takes.” “Signiﬁcant projects often take longer to implement but it is worth the time and effort,” Reed says. “I know we often questioned if we would achieve the goal but now one looks at Retiring Havelock-Belmont-Methuen CAO Linda Reed remains extremely the airport and sees great progress and a bright confident that the municipality’s plan for a long-term-care facility will be a future for jobs and growth.” “I think we’re going to have a long-termsuccess story even after protracted efforts to win approval from the provincial government for bed allocations.

News - Havelock - When Linda Reed thinks of HavelockBelmont-Methuen’s and the frustrations council and the municipality have had to bear in dealings with the provincial government she looks back on the prolonged efforts to win funding for improvements to the Peterborough airport. Reed, who will retire from the township’s chief administrative ofﬁcer’s post in May, was the city of Peterborough’s CAO during the campaign to win provincial funding support for airport upgrades working closely with then mayor Paul Ayotte to get that job done.

development that could also include a medical centre, assisted living units and geared-toincome seniors apartments. A day-care centre and other “integrated community opportunities” are being considered as part of the proposal. “Once the approval comes through we’ve put the process in place. That’s council’s doing,” says Reed. She remains conﬁdent that HavelockBelmont-Methuen will celebrate that accomplishment and that the protracted ordeal of arriving at a ground-breaking and then opening ceremony will be the sweet fruit of hard work by council and municipal staff.

It will be three years in February that Reed joined HBM from the City of Peterborough, although she’d worked side-by-side with the township for ﬁve years as part of the joint services team at the city. “It’s been an absolute joy. It’s a good council, good staff, the projects are challenging; it’s been an incredible place to work. “It’s been such a pleasure to be part of the staff, to learn from them and share ideas with them; they’re dedicated, strong in their knowledge and strong in their caring and compassion for residents.” There were four key priorities, she says, council wanted her to help tackle: updating the ofﬁcial plan and comprehensive zoning bylaw, a long-term-care home, improving the approach and productivity of council meetings and assisting staff and the township to “achieve potential.” “For a CAO [the ofﬁcial plan] is the most enjoyable thing to go through and you don’t have many opportunities to do them. It is a critical document and so enjoyable to work on thinking out 20 years,” she said. In working with six
municipalities she’s only had two “re-writes” and one was in HBM. “It sets out council’s priorities for businesses and residents and the future.” Electronic agendas, large wall-hanging monitors and streamlined meetings have helped both council and the public, Reed says. “I don’t think you ever ﬁnish that job; you just stay on it and never become complacent.” Reed worries about the “subtle and not so subtle changes imposed by the province without consultation or realization of the impact on municipalities and as a result of that the impact on taxpayers.” “That doesn’t seem to be changing,” she laments. “Municipalities don’t have an opportunity to opt in or opt out and that’s very difﬁcult for councils. You’re always very concerned about any tax burden you put on residents; when you get some of these regulations what do you do? “It’s very hard. Councils have a very big role because there’s so much out there to do.” “Linda has brought a great amount of expertise, knowledge and professionalism to the

township,” Deputy-mayor Andy Sharpe said. “She is deﬁnitely going to be missed.” Councillor Larry Ellis said that when a strong voice was needed Reed could be “tall in the saddle [like] John Wayne.” “She’s been an exceptional addition to the staff,” he said. “Her professionalism, her experience she brought to the table is such a value.” “She is a wealth of knowledge and has really left her mark in the short time she is with us,” added Councillor Jim Martin.

Speech therapist’s outreach visits help families By Bill Freeman
News - Hastings - Kate Wentzel logs a lot of miles on her car in an effort to help children and their families learn more about speech and language and the strategies that can help deal with communication skills problems. Wentzel, a speech-language therapist with the Five Counties Children’s Centre office in Campbellford, spends most of her week visiting schools and other outreach sites like the Ontario Early Years Centre in Hastings where her “Just Ask Kate” sessions are a welcome resource for parents and caregivers. “They’re really informal,” she says. Wentzel is there to listen to parents, answer their questions, connect them with resources and to suggest strategies that will help their child. “I see a lot of kids who are just late to get going to talking and a lot of kids who have developmental disabilities of all kinds and also children with delayed speech,” she said. “We really try to empower the parents to learn the strate-
gies and to then follow through at home because as a service we can only do so much individually; the parents are the ones who are with them all the time. “It’s all about empowering them to carry on and knowing what to do with their child who is developing differently for whatever reason.” Wentzel says she works hard to assuage a parent’s sense of guilt when dealing with childhood communication disabilities. Parents should not blame themselves, she stresses. “That’s one of the big messages: It’s not your fault; there are certainly things you can do to help, or different ways of interacting with your child that can help, but never blame.” At the Five Counties clinical office therapists like Wentzel work with children from birth to six years; they are also contracted out through the Access Centre to visit schools where they assist students from Grades 1 through high school.
“We go by parent referrals so parents with any concerns should feel free to call in and set up a referral and come in for testing.” The Five Counties Children’s Centre’s main office is in Peterborough with satellite offices in Haliburton, Cobourg, Lindsay and Campbellford. Along with speech and language therapy, it offers physiotherapy, occupational therapy, therapeutic recreation, augmentative communication services, preschool resource teachers and other specialized clinical services. For more information about Just Ask Kate sessions in Hastings call 705-6961353. For information on the Five Counties Children’s Centre you can call their Campbellford office at 705-653-1334, their Peterborough office at 1-888-7799916 or visit <www.fivecounties.ca>.

Province should not reduce funding for blood-glucose strips
By Bill Freeman
News - Havelock - Township council wants the province of Ontario to reverse its decision to reduce public funding for blood-glucose test strips. The provincial Ministry of Health and Long-term Care has decided to reduce its contribution for the test strips through the Ontario Drug Benefit Program by $19 million, something the Municipality of East
Ferris has objected to in a formal resolution. East Ferris points out that 25 per cent of Canadians live with some form of diabetes and that by 2020 11 per cent of the population will develop the disease which cost the Canadian health care system $11 billion in 2010. “Ontario Drug Benefit Program recipients are on fixed incomes with prescribed testing from their
healthcare professional for control or prevention of diabetes … and many of these residents will no longer be able to afford to continue to test,” the East Ferris resolution states. Without testing these patients “risk their health which could result in more diagnoses of insulin-dependent diabetes which will increase the overall cost to the healthcare system,” they say.
It will also lead to an increased demand on provincial social assistance programs which have already “suffered drastic provincial funding cutbacks.” Those cutbacks have been felt by municipalities in the form of downloaded costs and services, East Ferris maintains. Funding cuts to the Ontario Drug Benefit Program will force patients to look for other methods of obtain-
ing the testing strips “for reassurance that they have stabilized their blood-glucose levels.” HBM Councillor Barry Pomeroy urged council to support the resolution. Mayor Ron Gerow noted that county council passed the resolution on to the county-city board of health for direction on a “positive way we that we should be supporting this program.”

United Way big winner at Mapleview pie contest By Bill Freeman
News - Norwood - There was a little bit of pie heaven on display at Mapleview Retirement Centre last week and the United Way of Peterborough and District was the biggest winner of all. Thirteen scrumptious and tenderflaked pies battled each other taste for taste with a panel of four carefully assessing the savoury merits of each one before declaring Betty Brett’s sugar-free apple pie entry the best in show for which she earned the $30 top prize. Coming in a very close second was an entry by Mapleview’s life enrichment co-ordinator Leian Beasley, a caramilk, butterscotch, honey graham creation followed by another Betty Brett wonder, a traditional mincemeat pie. “They were delicious pies,” said judge Gary Savert, a community volunteer at Mapleview. “It was a great time and a great cause.” “It was very difficult to judge because some might be a little high on one score but maybe a little lower on the other side,” Savert said. The judges had to assess points for taste, crust, content and consistency. Savert said he tried to be “right down the middle” while judging the 13 entries. “I tried not to overrate but sometimes there was something that you really enjoyed so I think I did over-rate a little bit.” Judge Jack Lamey was so impressed he suggested Mapleview
hold another competition the following day. “There were so many and different kinds with different tastes. It was very challenging; I’ve never done this before,” the Mapleview maintenance worker said. Volunteer Marlene Kasaboski was thrilled to be on the judging panel. “It was a great time and great judges to be with and all very fair. I enjoyed it,” Kasaboski said.
“It’s hard to make a good pie but everyone who entered did their utmost best,” she said noting that she was looking for “crust, the consistency, that it was nice and brown and tender flakes.” “I enjoyed this, it was very nice to be asked to do this,” Mapleview resident Marie Hall said. “I used to bake a lot of pies but this [judging] is different; it’s a good change,” she said. Hall says texture was important.
“I looked at what the crust was like; was it tender; also on the inside I like to see it well-cooked,” she said. “It was difficult trying to decide which one was the best, there were quite a few good ones.” “It was a lot of fun,” said Beasley who also acted as pie auctioneer. She says Mapleview has had pie contests in the past and this year they were looking for a fund raiser “and what better way to use
what we haven’t used at this time of year. “I was surprised by the variety. It was fantastic.” Other pies included: chocolate fruit explosion, Keegan McGriskin; raisin, Lilian Dunlay; pumpkin, Van Cross; raspberry crumble, Anne Louise Grieves; lemon cream, Bruce Brett; apple, Miz Watson; blueberry, Linda Miles; angel, Marie Graydon; apple, Stewart Hall; apple, Merle Rathwell.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Old age pensioners beware: poverty looms
Dear Editor, If you’re approaching age 65 and anticipating receiving a living pension with Old Age Security, well, it ain’t gonna happen under the cheapo conservative Harperite regime. The current rate is around $550 a month, the same as a welfare recipient. And you’ll be treated with about as much respect as a welfare recipient. You now have to prove you qualify: receiving an OAS pension has become like qualifying for Unemployment Insurance (oops, I mean “employment insurance” in Orwell’s newspeak). The Harperite tactic is just avoiding and ignoring you when you become a senior, after all, you are a supplicant, when all that money should be given to
the big corporations, especially big oil. Likely you’ve spent a lifetime working and contributing tens of thousands of dollars, likely hundreds of thousands, in taxes. Every time you buy something you are still paying the nasty GST no matter how low your income. And no matter that you’ve volunteered thousands of hours of community service, or that generations of your ancestors fought to preserve Canada in two world wars. It’s your damn fault you got old! So just suck it up and accept our meagre handout, which is less than half the poverty line. Yes, line up, seniors-to-be at the cat and dog food sales bins, cause that’s where you’ll ﬁnd yourself if you’re trying to live on under $1K a month. I know this is true,
because it’s my personal situation. I’ve worked my 40+ years in Canada, as a head village librarian and before that as a cook (chef papers from George Brown). After all those years of hard work and contributing now I’m being treated like a lumpen who’s never done a day’s work or contributed an efﬁng thing in their lives. In fact a lumpen drug dealer I know of, who never worked so didn’t qualify for any Canada Pension Plan, received $1,350 a month—still pitiful. But this is far more than the $950 a month I’m currently receiving because I made the mistake of working, and then when I was forced into early retirement I had to withdraw “too much” ($15K) from my depleted RRSP savings the year before I
turned 65. A beginning solution to some of this inequity would be to raise the minimum monthly OAS payment to at least $1K, which is a measly $12K a year (who can live on that?). But if I were receiving my $400 a month CPP plus $1K a month OAS, well, I could almost survive, and at least I’d be receiving the same amount as the retired local lumpen drug dealer. And I don’t understand why all the younger baby boomers aren’t burning down the ofﬁces of their local members of parliament; these younger boomer suckers will have to work and wait until age 67 to begin receiving their OAS pittance. What’s so wrongheaded about chiselling seniors is that we don’t have any surplus
money to spend on luxuries like dining out occasionally, or travelling around Canada, or enjoying cultural activities like the ROM or AGO or even a frigging local evening at the cineplex, with maybe a beer afterwards. Henry Ford knew he had to pay a decent wage so his workers could buy his cars, but these Harperite ideologues are making it impossible for seniors to avail ourselves of the basic necessities of life, much less being able to stimulate our faltering economy by buying a few cultural extras. As my Zen master is wont to say, “Please wake up!”
The purpose of the Senate is to review legislation and act as watchdogs on the Federal Government for the beneﬁt of regional constituents. That would be us good folks. What it has become, thanks to the appointment of CAMPBELLFORD ROTARY CLUB 59 Harper Hacks, is a kangaroo court charged to do the will of one man, the Prime Minister; a October 2013 Winners Are: Prime Minister who sees everyone as $200.00 Sheila Peters expendable when it $300.00 Bill Patchett suits his purpose. $500.00 John/Sandra Thain Mr. Harper can TRIP Hugh McClure stand and spew
all he wants about Duffy paying back $90,000, and he may well expect us to swallow that drivel. However, what he does not state is that he knew about it in November but did nothing until February when the polls suggested his base was getting upset. However it was Nigel Wright who actually paid the bill, which we are expected to believe he knew nothing about. Mr. Harper has changed his story so many times about who knew what and when, I don’t know how anyone could believe his “self-righteous” indignation now. But surprisingly, some still do. Let us not forget that those three Senators, the most rabid Harper defenders, who spared no time or expense to travel the country, no doubt at the party’s behest, and on Harper’s behalf and who played no small role in his re-election are now being turfed under the bus. Like so many others, for the sake of expediency, without due process, nor a
chance to defend themselves they were expected to lie there and take it. Believe me, I’m no apologist for these three, or the many others who ﬁnd themselves stacked like cordwood under the Harper Bus. But I do believe in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and in due process and the concept of innocent until proven guilty. That should be the least we
can expect in a democracy. What is going on in the government is wrong on countless levels and as fairminded Canadians we should not stand for it. If these three, once fair-haired children of Stephen Harper’s cadre have come to this, what of the rest of us. Denyse Mouck, Stirling

Dear Editor, I sit and watch in awe at the situation unfolding in the Senate. It’s like a slow motion car wreck you don’t want to see, but can’t take your eyes off.
Next election can’t come soon enough Dear Editor, It seems that with all of the negativity of the senate scandal and many other questionable antics of this government reﬂecting badly on Steve Harper, the Cons deem it necessary to try and add a little more polish to their tarnished image, at taxpayers’ expense. The government’s “Action Plan” ads are now popping up everywhere. It’s bad enough the Harper government has squandered

hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ dollars polluting the airwaves with these ads, which are little more than thinly veiled self-aggrandizing propaganda for the Cons, but now they are polluting our beautiful country side as well by putting their obnoxious 4’ x 8’ Action Plan signs on the side roads in Trent Hills. This municipality does have a bylaw which prohibits signs of any kind on municipal property but apparently Harper and his minions feel these laws do not apply to them, just to us common folks. I’m wondering what it cost the municipal taxpayers to have these signs put up. The next election can’t come soon enough. Dwight Boyd Warkworth

The downfall of the NSA
Editorial - Politicians and government officials rarely tell outright lies; the cost of being caught out in a lie is too high. Instead, they make carefully worded statements that seem to address the issue, but avoid the truth. Like, for example, Caitlin Hayden, the White House spokesperson who replied on October 24 to German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s angry protest at the tapping of her mobile phone by the U.S. National Gwynne Dyer Security Agency. “The United States is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of Chancellor Merkel,” she said. Yes, but has the U.S. been listening to Merkel’s mobile phone calls from 2002 until the day before yesterday? “Beyond that, I’m not in a position to comment publicly on every specific alleged intelligence activity.” By October 27, the argument had moved on. The question now was: did President Barack Obama know the Chancellor’s phone was bugged? (The German tabloid Bild am Sonntag reported that General Keith Alexander, head of the NSA, told Obama about it in 2010. Obama allegedly said that the surveillance should continue, as “he did not trust her.”) Now it was the turn of the NSA spokesperson, Vanee Vines, to deny the truth. “[General] Alexander did not discuss with President Obama in 2010 an alleged foreign intelligence operation involving German Chancellor Merkel, nor has he ever discussed alleged operations involving Chancellor Merkel,” she said. But she carefully avoided saying that Obama had not been told at all. The ridiculous thing about these meticulously crafted pseudo-denials is that they leave a truth-shaped hole for everyone to see. Of course the United States has been listening to Angela Merkel’s phone calls since 2002, and of course Obama knew about it. It would have been quite easy to deny those facts if they were not true. The NSA is completely out of control. Its German outpost was brazenly located on the fourth floor of the U.S. embassy in Berlin, and leaked documents published by Der Spiegel say that the NSA maintains similar operations in 80 other U.S. embassies and consulates around the world. The Guardian, also relying on documents provided by whistle-blower Edward Snowden, reported recently that a total of 35 national leaders have been targeted by the NSA. We know that the German, Brazilian and Mexican leaders
were bugged, but it’s almost certain that the leaders of France, Spain and Italy, Egypt, Israel and Saudi Arabia, and Japan, India and Indonesia were also targeted. Not to mention Russia and China. “Friendly governments and societies that seek to build a true strategic partnership … cannot allow recurring illegal actions to take place as if they were normal,” Roussef concluded. “They are unacceptable.” And you wonder how the brilliant, power-drunk fools at the NSA could possibly have believed they could get away with this kind of behaviour indefinitely. The 4.9 million (!) Americans with access to classified information include 480,000 civilian contractors with the same “top secret” security clearance as Snowden. Even if all the military and public servants could be trusted to keep the NSA’s guilty secret forever (unlikely) and only one in a hundred of the contractors was outraged by it, then there were still 4,800 potential whistle-blowers waiting to blow. If Snowden hadn’t, somebody else would have. When the astounding scale and scope of the agency’s operations finally came out, it was bound to create intense pressure on Washington to rein in the NSA. The agency can deflect the domestic pressure, to some extent, by insisting that it’s all being done to keep Americans safe from terrorism, but it can’t persuade the president of South Korea or the prime minister of Bangladesh that she was being bugged because she was a terrorist suspect. The NSA’s worst abuse has been its violation of the privacy of hundreds of millions of private citizens at home and abroad, but it’s the pressure from furious foreign leaders that will finally force the U.S. government to act. “Trust in our ally the USA has been shattered,” said German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich on Sunday. “If the Americans have tapped mobile phones in Germany, then they have broken German law on German soil.” This will end up in the German courts, and probably in those of many other countries as well (and Snowden may well end up being granted asylum in Germany). To rebuild its relations with its key allies, the White House is going to have to radically curb the NSA’s powers. Good. We don’t have to listen to the spooks and their allies telling us that since the new communications technologies make total surveillance possible, it is therefore inevitable. “If it can be done, it will be done” is a counsel of despair. Most of the NSA’s ever-expanding activities over the past ten years have served no legitimate purpose, and it’s high time that it was forced to obey both the letter and the spirit of the law.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR Eco-terrorists pose a significant threat Dear Editor, This country spends millions every year to battle terrorists or those radical homebrews from inflicting murder and mayhem on innocent Canadians. Yet we have First Nation eco-terrorists who have been perpetrating criminal activity against their fellow citizens for years without feeling the full impact of law enforcement. Why? This latest uprising in New Brunswick is just another example that some out-of-control Indian group believe it has the right to be as extreme as it feels because law enforcement is reluctant to go against the politically correct code by cracking down hard on offenders. When the McGuinty government looked the other way during the Caledonia fiasco it was the signal that Mohawk offenders weren’t governed under the same rules as the rest of us. So criminal activity continues unabated, now directed against oil and gas fracking, even though there’s never been a single incident of water contamination since they started this exploration 50 years ago.

initiatives such as wind turbines and solar panels acted with Molotov cocktails, IEDs and assault rifles, used intimidation tactics, burned police cruisers and seized cameras and sound equipment from the media, how drastic do you think the response would be from the OPP or RCMP? The New Brunswick protestors, who are 85 per cent unemployed, insist they are their own nation and not subject to Canadian laws but why then do they continue to accept millions of dollars annually from the federal government? They could use the jobs that will become available once a gas operation becomes operational. It’s too bad we all can’t get along in this country to support a strong economy that would be beneficial to everyone, including First Nations people. I don’t believe our World War II heroes fought and died on battlefields around the world for the kind of disgraceful terrorist outburst that occurred in New Brunswick. This so-called warrior society is an organized para-military organization with ready access to weapons and it’s about time law enforcement took them seriously. Rolly Ethier, Campbellford
Who knew? By Terry Bush
Editorial - Since nobody else seems to want to step up and admit they knew about the goings-on in the Prime Minister’s Office, I’ll have to fess up. Yes, I knew all about Senator Mike Duffy and his bogus expense claims. I also knew about Pamela Wallin for that matter and Patrick Brazeau and I talked Liberal Senator Marc Harb into doing the right thing and resigning. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the renowned micromanager, didn’t have a clue what was going on with the senators he handpicked for the chamber of sober second thought but I did. And it was me who asked Nigel Wright to cut a cheque to cover Duffy’s expenses as well. Nobody knew about that but me. What a relief. I feel a load has been lifted from my shoulders and the truth has set me free. The trouble with telling lies is; if you tell them all the time, it’s really hard to remember the truth. So while I’m being honest, I’ll also admit that I really don’t know what my staff is up to even though I’m the editor of this paper. And if you believe any of this, you’re probably a person who takes as gospel every word that comes out of the mouth of the leader of the political party you favour. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with the Senate scandal when the stories change every day. Mike Duffy’s latest revelations come at a very inopportune time for the Harper government with card-carrying Conservatives congregating in Calgary this week for their annual love-in. What should have been yet another, “You’re doing a great job, hurray for the European Free Trade Agreement,” moment for Harper will now have some Conservatives, especially those of the Progressive persuasion wondering if the Prime Minister has lost a step. I’m sure the Liberals also had a few worries about their future when Jean Chretien faltered during his scandal-filled third term, yet another reason to impose two-term limits on the office of Prime Minister. Mike Duffy isn’t one to keep his mouth shut. He was a respected broadcaster once upon a time and one who covered his share of scandals. So his latest revelations in the Senate on Monday that not only did he receive money to pay off his expenses but his legal bills were also paid for by the Conservative Party have really stoked the fire. I’m sure if I was a member of the Conservative Party, I might be a little upset at how my donations have been used if this is true. Duffy also said he was given a script by the Prime Minister’s office saying that for public consumption, he and his wife took out a loan at the Royal Bank to repay his expenses and he added that he never saw a cheque from Nigel Wright. Harper’s version of events in the House of Commons on Monday differed from Senator Duffy’s, laying all the blame on Duffy. So who’s lying? My guess is both of them may have a few issues with honesty. First we had Harper telling Canadians what great assets his hand-picked senators were (most of us realized their greatest asset was the ability to fund raise for the Conservative Party). Then he continued to back them through the early months of the scandal. Next he demanded they pay back their ill-gotten expense money and now that the scandal has taken on a life of its own he is leading the charge cut them loose without pay. One would have to wonder why, when he first learned of the extent of the scandal, he didn’t move to get rid of them then. Harper has also changed his story a few times as far as his former chief of staff Nigel Wright is concerned. Harper said he knew nothing about Wright’s cheque to Duffy as Wright acted alone. Now he admits certain members of the Prime Minister’s Office knew about it but he didn’t. It was said at the time that Nigel Wright resigned for his wrongdoing because he didn’t want to his bad judgment to reflect poorly on the Prime Minister’s Office. It’s almost beyond belief that someone as controlling as Stephen Harper wouldn’t have known what his chief of staff was up to. Then on Monday in a radio interview, Harper dropped the bombshell that Nigel Wright didn’t resign, he was let go for the indiscretion of giving away 90 grand of his own money to, option one: help out a friend or option two: save taxpayers some money. So if Harper now says he fired a man with impeccable credentials because he was part of a cover-up, and Harper admits other staffers in his office knew about this same cover-up, why haven’t we heard of anyone else in the PM’s office being sacked. It’s getting almost impossible to keep track of all this without a program. It does, however, bode well for the Liberals and NDP if they decide to follow the Tory playbook with a few well-placed attack ads during the next election. Fair and transparent government you say … And on Monday as he was wont to do when he was a broadcaster, Mike Duffy broke for commercial adding there was more to come. Stay tuned; this one isn’t going away any time soon.

It was a nourishing afternoon in Havelock
step, in trying to educate people.” The dinner was prepared with local food through donations or discounted rates from ten local farms and ﬁve other businesses with over 30 volunteers providing in-kind support that included vendor displays. Julie Zufelt a Nourish Havelock member and volunteer with the Havelock Food Bank showed off an example of a raised container garden that is a smaller facsimile of what the group hopes to create. “To me it’s just as worthwhile as the farmers’ market to get people out socializing and talking,” Zufelt said of the dinner. “This is a model of what a garden should be, enough for a small family.” The garden was planted during the last week in August and has ﬂourished with everything from Lincoln peas to Paris market carrots. “We’ve worked well together; it’s a good group,” Zufelt said. “It’s really very gratifying and an amazing group of people in the Havelock area that are doing so much for so many people all year long,” Nourish Havelock vice chair Les Morris said. “This is another new initiative and I hope we can get a community garden going and have lots of people involved, we’ll be working toward that.”
Claudia was found wandering a Brighton neighborhood in the winter of 2011. She was terribly thin, cold, and very hungry. She was placed into a foster home where she has fully recovered from her abandonment. She is about 5 years old. She continues to do well but she would love nothing more than to have a home all to herself. She would, however, consider sharing her home with a couple of other cats. If Claudia can handle
Nourish Havelock grew out of a round table discussion hosted by the YWCA and has met almost weekly since, says Morris. “We decided that in order to foster in people a better idea of how to grow their own food and buy locally and live more nutritiously we’d try to establish a community garden. The community has come on board wonderfully [with] fabulous feedback. I recognize the need now more than I did before.” Churches, service organizations, school groups and individuals have united, said Morris. “They’ve all chipped in to help bring this about.” He says there are a number of possible plots centrally located around Havelock for a garden. “The community is buying Faye Brown and Sherri Hubble of the Hometown Kitchen Club into this and taking it over to were part of the Nourish Havelock harvest dinner at the Lions make this happen. That’s huge, Community Hall Saturday which drew 200 people for dinner. there are new faces I haven’t seen at other community meetings,” taskforce chair Phil Higgins said. “It’s demonstrating that food, nutrition and health are important to a lot of people and it looks like we’ll have good support to carry the message forward.” “It’s a great program,” added nutritionist Eleanor Cheyne. “The more information people can have the healthier they can be.”

News - Havelock - Nourishing things are happening in the Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen and that bodes well for the development of a community garden and teaching residents more about the value of locally sourced food and healthy cooking and eating. Two-hundred people showed up to Nourish Havelock’s inaugural fall harvest dinner exceeding expectations by 50 and giving the 12-member volunteer group a signiﬁcant boost in introducing their goal of educating people about healthy eating, the beneﬁts of buying locally produced food and supporting food security strategies. “It’s really come together, it’s just awesome,” said Nourish Havelock Taskforce member Amanda O’Rourke while serving up a bowl of vegan roasted basil tomato soup. “We’re all working toward the same goal to help people eat healthier. Just working with everyone in the community has been great; you feel like your ideas are really being heard in this group. “I think this [harvest dinner] is just the beginning of it,” O’Rourke said. Throughout the winter they’ll work toward the development of a community garden, she adds. The dinner is “kind of like the missing piece, the middle
