Lions Club celebrates 60th anniversary

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.

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 a success story.” “I am not disillusioned with the fact that it’s taken time,” Reed says. She admits that it has “not moved as fast as we would like [but] we have made progress.” The township has had a plan on the books since July 2011, when it made a formal application to the province, that facilitates building of a 128-bed nursing home on an 18acre property off Old Norwood Road which had already been zoned for a seniors-related

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.

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-

Hearing Aids

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.

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

What about those of us under the bus?


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.

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

TD donation strengthens local breakfast program By Bill Freeman

News - Havelock - Havelock Belmont Public School’s highly regarded breakfast program has received a $1,000 boost thanks to a donation from the local TD Canada Trust branch. “It’s good to know to be able to give it to somewhere so close and to know that it’s helping children in our area,” says Havelock TD Canada Trust manager Sarah McGarr. “That is our goal, to do something that matters in our community and we can see the effect of it here and now.” It’s the first time the branch has donated to the breakfast program. The Food For Kids program provides nutritious snacks and breakfasts to every student at the school if they want them and that can mean providing food for up to 281 youngsters, long-time volunteer Miz Watson says. The donation itself will also help the monthly pancake breakfast the Rotary Club of Havelock and other volunteers serve to students. Every day there are 20 to 25 different kinds of snacks in bins in each class and breakfasts consist of a variety of fruits and vegetables and tasty treats like grilled cheese on raisin bread, waffles and mini croissants. “They’re there for everybody,” says Watson a 13-year volunteer with the program which has 16 community helpers and “is the envy” of schools around the district. “They get a good start to the day and there are many reasons [why] children might not have had breakfast,” she says. “People ask: ‘Why do you do this?’ and my answer is ‘Somebody has to.’ This is a rural school; they’re up early on the bus. They come to school and open their lunch and by lunchtime they’re depleted or they’ve picked out what they want.” The snack bins are collected by Grade 4 students after the second nutrition break; anything that needs to go in the fridge does and the dry items are separated. Watson says they are reaching 60 to 70 per cent of the school and during

pancake breakfasts serve 150 to 170 students. “No one is left behind; if one bus is a little late Glen [principal Glen Payne] lets them stay and take theirs right to class.” For Watson it’s a “give back in a way.” “When my kids were here I was working and I couldn’t [volunteer]. It’s a good thing for the children, the nutrition part; it’s also a good feeling to help the kids.” Watson estimates that monthly costs have escalated from $400 to $650 in the 13 years she’s been involved.

McGarr says Canada Trust branches are always brainstorming about ways to help. “What do we feel will really make an impact on the community. The reason this is so important is that it’s about children; it is the development of our children.

Bridge Hospice fund raiser has many firsts By Sue Dickens

News - Warkworth - Several records were broken at the 9th annual Bridge Hospice Running Events held last Sunday in Warkworth. Not only was there a record number of runners, 125 altogether, but Kim Jewell came in with a time of 23:05 for the five-kilometre (female) run beating out the previous record by Nancy Gibson who had a time of 23:25. This in spite of the fact it was a very wet and slippery run owing to severe winds and heavy rain during the events. This was also the first year the W8 runners used the Chip timing system which saw the athletes wearing a small lightweight chip to identify when they

cross the strategically placed electronic mats at the finish line. The procedure was explained to the runners by Sandra Allanson-Kelly, who organized those at the starting line. Bryce Miller, a runner himself, and founder of the event, said, “I think the chip has made a difference. People like to feel they are using the latest technologies. We’ve had a record number of runners register this year.” Originally set up as a fund raiser for the Warkworth Service Club, the run eventually became a fund raiser for the Bridge Hospice. In spite of the downpour the day of the events, runners bundled up and were in good spirits, enthusiastic about participating in the fund raiser. Marcus Dinkel, of Warkworth, who was running in the W8 for the fourth year, was not out to set any records although he did win the 13-kilometre run last year; he said, “If you like run-

Dr. Bob Henderson, chair of The Bridge Hospice board, thanked the volunteers and runners for making the 9th annual Bridge Hospice Running Events such a success. He also asked for a moment of silence to remember the tragic bombings at the Boston Marathon “and those who were killed, injured and traumatized in that act of terror.” Photo: Sue Dickens

ning you go out no matter what kind of weather. It’s going to be slippery and muddy out there but that’s just the way it is.” His son Matthias, 15, was there to support his sister Veronika, age five, who was running in the one-kilonetre event, unable to participate because “of bum knees,” but he has run in the past. “My fatherin-law has been a lifetime runner and Marcus has kind of followed in his footsteps with his love of running and Matthias has followed in his,” said mom Carey. “My daughter says it’s just about having fun.” Dr. Bob HenBryce Miller is the founder of the running events derson, chairman which are now a major fund raiser for The Bridge of the board for Hospice in Warkworth.

thanks. “There are a tremendous number of people behind the scenes as you all know who have given of their time and energies and we want to thank every last one of them. Three people stand out and you’ll recognize the names of Brenda Partridge, Bob Rowe and Bryce Miller. Dr. Henderson also asked the runners to take a moment and thing about those at the Boston Marathon where two bombs exploded. “This year for the first time you’ll see on the run shirts the logo Boston Strong and this is put on the T-shirts in recognition of the tragic event in Boston this year and we would like to ask

you to take just a moment at this time to stop and think about those who were killed, injured and traumatized in that act of terror.” As of press time there was no word on how much money had been raised. For the race results go to: <www.>

Design editor will talk about interior styling and design dilemmas By Sue Dickens

Lifestyles - Warkworth - Margot Austin, senior design editor at Canadian House & Home, is bringing her styling and decorating expertise to “Our Lucky Stars Café,” in Warkworth. “As a producer on CBC’s Steven & Chris show, Margot was one of my favourite decor guests. We could always rely on her to deliver inspiration and information that viewers could take away and use in their own homes, without breaking the bank,” said Elizabeth Aikenhead who recently opened the village café. Austin will give an informal talk and presentation and has offered to answer questions about design dilemmas. “Margot is brilliant at delivering tips on how to ‘get the look’ that’s chic but also practical, realistic and affordable.

She’s got great style that’s clever, creative and resourceful, but she’s also incredibly down to earth,” noted Aikenhead. “She’s also a passionate collector and can give some great tips on styling your collections so they don’t become clutter chaos,” she added. Interviewing Austin on the phone last week she spoke of her passion for the magazine industry. “I have always loved magazine, ever since I was a little kid, looking at fashion magazines such as Seventeen and Vogue,”

she commented. Graduating from the University of Toronto she responded to a newspaper about a full-time job with TV Guide magazine. “That was my first break in the industry. I was always a TV pop culture person,” she said. She later worked at Canadian Living magazine as an editor/writer. She has been with Canadian House & Home for the past two years. “I am going to be talking about easy ways to update your interiors of your homes,” she said. “A lot of what I’ve been doing in my career is styling, which is the lighter side of interior design.

“It’s about the art of display and art of arranging. “Styling is adding personality.” With an admitted bias to “adding more things,” she said, “In my own life I love to be surrounded by things that remind me of places I’ve been and people dear to me … objects with a story or meaning. I like to collect.” Her favourite collection includes about 20 tartan blankets. “I have some displayed on an apple picking ladder and others I use,” she noted. “I’ve always got throws and blankets everywhere.” Austin admits that kitchens are also an obsession. As editor of special publications for Canadian House & Home she worked on

the latest “Kitchen and Bath” issue that is now on the stands. She is also described as a career print magazine editor with a keen interest in/ addiction to social media. When she is not working Austin and her husband, a fine antiques dealer, travel to their weekend place in Tweed, an Edwardian house “with handsomeness and a sense of history.” Whether it is their post-war bungalow in Toronto “with a mid-century feel” or their cottage in Prince Edward Island, “where we go coastal and preppy,” she likes to “dabble with different styles.” Austin will be at the café on Saturday, November 9, early evening. Cost is $15. For more information check out the web site <> or call 705-924-1212.

Show will help raise money for feral cat spay/neuter organization By Sue Dickens

News - Campbellford - “Hypnosis is the ultimate reality show.” Those are the words of Jimmy Graham, a professional entertainer, whose hypnotic comedy show is coming to Campbellford to help raise money for the Cat Care Spay/Neuter Initiative (CCSNI). “Hypnosis is all about the power of the mind,” Graham said. He uses his passion for this skill that he has developed over the years to help raise money for various organizations including high schools, for Legions, neighbourhood watch groups and more. And he is helping to raise money for the CCSNI, <>, founded by Suzanne Hart of Havelock and Eileen McIntosh of Campbellford, to address the overpopulation of cats and to assist individuals in their surrounding communities including Peterborough, Northumberland and Hastings Counties by arranging for cats to be spayed/neutered at low cost spay/

neuter facilities. With their charitable status pending the organization has trapped/neutered/ returned over 500 cats since June 1 2012. “I planned the date of this event to coincide with deer hunting season so many may see it as a girls’ night out while the men are away hunting. We sold all tickets for our last comedy show in advance,” she noted. Tickets for this show are selling fast. “We will probably have some tickets available at the door but no guarantees, as the capacity is 200,” said Hart. For Graham the show is a chance to bring his “interactive” entertainment here and help raise money. “I’ve been a professional entertainer since the day I was born,” said Graham, laughing. He sang and played guitar for years with a band. He later became a DJ and created his own entertainment company performing at corporate events and weddings.

According to Graham he was doing a Google search one day on his computer and an ad popped up about a place in Las Vegas offering training as a hypnotist. “I dropped everything and was trained by some of the biggest people in the world. I’ve been touring ever since,” he commented. Based in Windsor, he travels wherever his show takes him. Many reviews have been posted on his web site about what people think of his show. Audience feedback is important to

Graham. “The audience shows up with two things on their mind. Number one, they are curious as to what’s going to happen and who’s going to do what … curiosity of the unknown,” he said. “The second part, like I said, is it’s the ultimate reality show and it’s just a great entertaining night out. Laughter is the best medicine for everybody,” he added. “The big thing is that no one is made to volunteer. No one is selected from the audience to be in the show. Those who want to be hypnotized are the ones I want


… and there are always plenty of people willing to be hypnotized,” he noted. To learn more about JimmyG’s show go to <>. The comedy show is one night only, Friday, November 15, at the Campbellford Legion. Doors open 7 p.m. Show time is 8 p.m. Tickets are $15. There is a silent auction as well and a light lunch is served after the show. The Campbellford Legion has donated their hall for the event. For more information call Hart at: 705-559-1899.

What can the Canary System and Dr. Younes Dental Care do for you?

News - Trent Hills - There were plenty of smiles to go around in Trent Hills last week as Tim Hortons announced it had raised $2,499 for the Campbellford Memorial Hospital (CMH) with its annual Smile Cookie Campaign. “This year’s campaign was a tremendous success, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity of local Tim Hortons owner/ operators Doug and Josephine Robertson and the customers who bought Smile Cookies,” said John Russell, executive director of the Foundation.

The funds raised will support the Flourish Campaign, specifically the Foundation’s effort to raise funds for a new digital mammography machine for the hospital. “We’re truly grateful to the Robertson Family and the Tim Hortons’ staff and patrons for their support again this year,” said Russell. Tim Hortons’ customers showed their support in the last week of September by purchasing a smiling chocolate chunk cookie for $1, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to the hospital.

Dr. Younes Dental Care, along with the new technology of the Canary System, can detect the early onset of decay. The Canary System uses a simultaneous measurement of a reflected heat and light; providing us with information on the presence, and extent of tooth decay below the tooth surface; before being detected by dental radiographs. With early detection, we can extend the natural lifecycle of the tooth; by providing an opportunity to remineralize the lesion, thus avoiding the placement of fillings in the teeth. Here at Dr. Younes Dental Care, we are focused on the prevention and preservation of the natural tooth structure.

Birdhouse Birdhouse Birdhouse nature store nature store store nature


Phil Windsor, AMP *459 Dundas St. W., Unit C. Mortgage Agent

QUESTION: Connie, what should my winter bird feeding consist of? ANSWER: There is a lot of natural food out there this year, but keeping seed in your feeders now will ensure a greater bird population in your yard as we go through fall and winter. Black, oil sunflower is certainly a staple in any yard in any season and can be placed in any type of feeder. Suet, an energy food, takes the place of insects for insect eating birds like woodpeckers and nuthatches. I place suet in a fly through feeder as well as the usual small, hanging basket. Shelled peanuts placed in a mesh feeder will attract clinging birds like woodpeckers, nuthatches and chickadees. I recommend a small feeder for the peanuts to keep them from going mushy in a prolonged wet spell. Finches love the energy rich nyjer seed, black oil sunflower and the sunflower with no shell. I also love to use a quality mix for all birds as I love watching their interaction. We use our own “no filler” mix called The Right Stuff.

ST. JOHNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S ANGLICAN

By Sue Dickens

News - Warkworth - The political debate in the Senate over whether or not to suspend three Senators without pay was changing hourly last week as talk of personal attacks and backroom deals took over the conversation and media reports. The House of Commons, which is televised, has become another forum where debate by MPs over the Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation has also been happening on a daily basis. Television cameras are not allowed in the Senate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Opposition and the newspapers are making them [Senators Patrick Brazeau, Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallin] out to be victims of the Prime Minister,â&#x20AC;? said Rick Norlock, MP for

At the time of this interview with Norlock Prime Minister Stephen Harper was expected to table the tentative free trade agreement with the European Union in the House of Commons on the following Tuesday. This was the same day Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government hoped to cut off debate in the Senate on the motion to suspend the three Senators without pay.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The PM is making the largest most significant trade deal in history and it barely made the front pages of the daily newspapers,â&#x20AC;? said Norlock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The trade deal will mean opening up to half a billion new customers for our natural resources and for our agriculture. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge.â&#x20AC;? But the Senate â&#x20AC;&#x153;scandalâ&#x20AC;? continues to top the agenda in both the House of Commons and the Senate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take the politics aside,â&#x20AC;? said Norlock, putting his position forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Say you the employer, the taxpayers of Canada have under your employ 105 employees called Senators and 308 called MPs â&#x20AC;Ś and four or five have claimed for expenses they do not qualify for, and what isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in dispute for at least three of them is the fact they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dispute the fact they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have claimed because they have paid it back, which means they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have claimed for it in the first place â&#x20AC;Ś I think if anyone else did that while employed, they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a job.â&#x20AC;? Relating this to the Senate situation he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neither the PM nor the people of Canada can fire these Senators. Because of the rules surrounding Senators, only Senators can fire Senators â&#x20AC;Ś thus the vote in the Senate as to whether they should be allowed to continue to be on the payroll of the taxpayer.â&#x20AC;? Norlock was asked what he thought about some of the Conservative Senators breaking party ranks over the motion to suspend the three Senators. For example, Senator Hugh Segal, who is a member of the Conservative caucus, has announced his reservations about the motion to suspend them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know Senator Segal quite well, he was a member of the Eastern Ontario Caucus. We are not automatons, sometimes we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with certain things. I disagree with his choice but I respect it,â&#x20AC;? Norlock said. As for the Senate â&#x20AC;&#x153;scandalâ&#x20AC;?: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadians are getting tired of this. The Opposition are going to flog at this as long as they think they will get the mileage.â&#x20AC;?

Learning series offers help for Alzheimer’s disease caregivers News - Campbellford - Family members and care partners of people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias now have the opportunity to attend a free supportive learning series. It is being offered by the Alzheimer Society, Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland and Haliburton and takes place in Campbellford. “The incidence of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias is on the rise, especially given the aging baby boom generation,” said David Webster, executive director with the society. “Any communities with higher than average seniors popula-

tions will be especially hit,” he added. Diana Primavesi, caregiver support co-ordinator with the Alzheimer Society explained, “The course provides a really good foundation of information about the brain changes that happen during dementia, how these affect a person’s abilities and behaviours, and how to help the person cope with the changes. “It is appropriate for family and friend care partners of people with dementia,” she added. The series is called “Care Essentials.” Participants will learn new approaches for communication, and how to best support daily

activities. As well they will learn about other resources to support them in their role as a care partner. “Family caregivers are key to helping family members diagnosed with some form of dementia, and are a major component of the health care system helping people stay at home for a longer period of time,” Webster commented. The local Alzheimer Society provides service throughout the Campbellford/Hastings/Warkworth area, with more than 50 clients in the local communities. This number has more than doubled in the last couple of years.

Now the 25-member Norwood #7 Cruisers Car Club is pushing to break the 700 mark, something member Jack Lamey feels is within reach.

Blue in the Loo! Recycling in the kitchen is almost second nature, but what about the bathroom? Research has shown only 20-50% of people recycle in the bathroom. It may be the smallest room in the house but it sure does generate a lot of waste, much of which can be recycled. For example: toilet paper tubes, toothpaste boxes, empty shampoo containers, empty lotion containers, empty aerosols and more. Consider placing a small bin for recycling in the bathroom to collect these items to ensure they make it to the blue box where they can be recycled into new products.

Senior Knights take Kawartha title, head to COSSA final By Bill Freeman

Sports - Lindsay - Norwood District High School’s seniors lady’s rugby team are the Kawartha A/AA rugby champions after a stirring 7 - 0 win over the Lindsay Collegiate Spartans and will now set their sights at a Central Ontario (COSSA) title this week. Calee Armstrong scored the decisive try for Norwood with Tianna Lycett finishing off the convert and the defence denying the Spartans points. The Lady Knights actually booked a berth in the COSSA rugby finals after a powerful opening round performance at the Kawartha playdowns knocking off the I.E. Weldon Wildcats 15 - 5 to guarantee a spot in the championship final against the Spartans. The win over LCVI gives them the Kawartha title and the top A/AA seed at COSSA. The Knights used a pair of tries and a single score by Jenna Baptie to drop the Wildcats 15 - 5 to ensure a date in the Kawartha A/AA final against LCVI the

hosts from Lindsay Collegiate and a trip to the Central Ontario finals. It was the first time NDHS has played the LCVI Spartans who upset the top seeded Cobourg East Comets to advance to the A/AA final. “The game against Weldon was very close in the first half but we went ahead in the second as our forwards were more physical than theirs,” said co-coach Aaron Stinchcombe who works alongside Linda Coons. Stinchcombe says the team’s ability to “move the ball down the field” was a key factor in what was shaping up to be a tight game. That ball movement helped set up Bellamy’s two second-half tries, he said. “The key to advancing has definitely been the hard running and rucking of our forwards and the excellent tackling of our backs.” As in previous years, Stinchcombe says the team’s success has been built on the players’ ability to ruck and tackle. “We are not a dynamic offensive team

but work hard on defence and have 15 players on the field that can tackle and run hard. What has surprised Linda and I so far is the play of the juniors from last year’s team, they have moved up to the senior level and have continued to out-play their competition.” The depth of the senior team is “much improved over last season,” says Stinchcombe, “due to many good Grade Eleven players.” The team has solid leadership with players like Bellamy, Kara Sicker and Kate Booth, who play summer rugby for the Peterborough Pagans, adding a level of experience that is reflected in their play on the field which is composed, relentless and intelligent. “The experience of these players has been of great importance,” Stinchcombe agrees. Grade 12 players like Cortney Wright, Jill Sanderson, Ashley Baird, Jenna Baptie and Ashlin Boustead have also contributed with their on-field play and leadership, he added.

Rebels salvage point with furious third-period comeback By John Campbell

Sports - Campbellford The Campbellford Rebels are hanging onto third place in the Empire B Junior C Hockey League by their fingertips, after dropping a 6 - 5 decision to the Port Hope Panthers at home last Saturday. The shootout win moved the Panthers to within one point of the Rebels, who have

collected 14 in 12 matches while playing one more game. Port Hope’s Kyle Sullivan was the only one among six players to score in the shootout. Campbellford salvaged a point by scoring three straight goals in the third period to erase a 4 - 1 deficit and then pulling even again in the final minute of play after the visi-

tors had gone ahead 5 - 4 with six minutes left in the game. Andy Paul tied the game with Steven Clarke and Andrew Doxtator drawing assists. Clarke also assisted on Doxtator’s goal that ignited the comeback, and Ryan Crowley’s marker, the first of two, that got Campbellford on the board in the middle frame. Cole Hamilton had the other goal for the Rebels, who outshot the Panthers 52 - 37. Hamilton also collected on both of Campbellford’s power play goals.

The loss prevented Kevin Valdes from collecting his fourth win in six starts. It was another humiliation for the Deseronto Storm when the Rebels visited the winless cellar dwellers October 15. Crowley and TJ Patterson finished the night with five points apiece and Hamilton garnered four in the team’s 12 - 1 debacle. The Storm has been outscored 237-109 in its 12 defeats. Campbellford’s other top point-getters were

Mitchell Merry and Joshua Leavey, with three apiece. Cole Mahoney turned aside 23 shots to earn his third win of the season in six outings. Campbellford was on the road Tuesday, to face the Napanee Raiders who are in fifth place. The Rebels play at home Friday, November 1, when they hope to end a three-game losing streak against the second-place Amherstview Jets. The game starts at 7:30 p.m.

Ontario Power Generation has generously supported and sponsored the team for the past five years during which time the squad has played to three Ontario championships.

“New” Vipers earn split in ACH return By Bill Freeman

Sports - Stoney Creek - The “new” Norwood J.J. Stewart Vipers earned a feisty split in their Allan Cup Hockey return knocking off the Stoney Creek Generals 7 - 6 behind three-point games from perennial all-star Darren Doherty, former Campbellford Rebels scoring ace Levi George and Colby Andrews. The Whitby Dunlops ruined Norwood’s return to action after a year off with a 10 - 2 blitzing Saturday night with former Vipers sniper Matt Gray leading the Dunlops with three points and the game’s third star. Norwood withstood a 21 - 9 shot barrage in the first period at the brand

new Gateway Centre in Stoney Creek but managed to survive the period up 3 - 2 on goals by Doherty, George and former Collingwood Blues defenceman Kyle Begley. Doherty, the Dunlops leading scorer last season and sixth best in the ACH, George and Andrews, a Cobourg Cougars Tier II grad, led the Vipers with three points against Stoney Creek, a new franchise making their ACH debut this season. The see-saw pace continued in the second period but with Norwood holding an 18 - 10 edge in shots and making Generals goalie Mark Servos work to keep his team in the game. Nathan Pageau evened the score at 3 -

CDHS junior girls qualify for COSSA rugby championship

Sports - Campbellford - Campbellford District High School’s junior girls rugby team will compete for the Central Ontario Secondary Schools Athletics championship in the AA girls division. CDHS advanced, despite splitting its games last week in post-season play, defeating Fenelon Falls and then losing to IE Weldon from Lindsay, an AAA team.

“We advanced the furthest of all AA schools so we’re number 1 AA in Kawarthas,” said coach Todd Girdwood. To win COSSA, Campbellford will need to defeat both CDCI East and St. Mary Catholic Secondary School, the two schools hosting the championship Thursday, October 31.

3 less than two minutes into the frame but Jordan Freeland, from Joe Curry and Andrews, put them in front 4 - 3 five minutes later. Back to back goals by Kyle McQuade and Pageau gave the hometown Generals a 5 - 4 lead but George, from Doherty and Mike Banks, another Vipers veteran, erased the lead with 2:31 left in the period. McQuade pushed Stoney Creek in front 6 - 5 at the 1:01 mark of the third but Norwood rallied to tie the game on a marker by Chris Johnston from Banks and Cory Johnston. Andrews, from George and Curry, notched the winner with 9:17 left. In Whitby, Norwood opened the

scoring at the 5:56 mark on a goal by George with Will Jones and newcomer Tim McClean assisting. The Dunlops replied with three straight goals in seven minutes before Doherty, with help from David Herring, beat Dunnies stopper Anthony Kimlin. Whitby showed its offensive power in the second scoring three times in a 1:13 span to make it 7 - 2. The powerful Dunlops outshot Norwood 52 - 28. Patrick Meekler started in net for Norwood with Edwards taking over in the third. Along with one of Senior AAA hockey’s best players in Doherty, the Vipers have a solid core of returning veterans including captain

Steve Thomas, Murray Free, Ryan Toms, David Herring, Will Jones, Chris Johnston, Cory Johnston, Curry and Freeland. Former Rebels captains Seamus McDougall and Brendan Curry are also on the squad along with forward Colin Baker, who played six seasons in Whitby, and former International Hockey League defenceman Nathan Oke. George led the Rebels and the Empire League in goal scoring in 2011-2012 and was a member of last year’s OHA Schmalz Cup champion Picton Pirates. The Vipers open their home schedule November 3 against Whitby. Face off is 6:30 p.m.

Occupational Therapist uses coffee to break the ice at 8 Wing

By Ross Lees

News - Trenton - Customers at the Tim Hortons coffee shop on RCAF Road received a pleasant eye-opener last Friday. Brighton Occupational Therapist Phillip Leadbeater put down some money to pay for coffee for all customers ordering coffee at 10 a.m. until the money ran out. He made the gesture to heighten awareness of Occupational Therapy Month (October). A consultant with Veteran’s Affairs Canada, Mr. Leadbeater felt there was no better way to make contact with the military than through Tim Hortons coffee. “What better way to bring attention to occupational therapy than at Tim Hortons,” he noted, pointing to the company’s connection to the troops in Afghanistan. “It is my intent to acknowledge our troops and their families and say ‘Thank-you for your service.’ It is my intent to be there to educate anyone regarding the use of occupational therapy, especially with a focus on post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD], anxiety, and depression and to acknowledge the contribution of Tim Hortons Corporation and specifically Tim Hortons at 8 Wing in Trenton.” Mr. Leadbeater said occupa-

tional therapists work hand-inhand with psychologists in the community and with the individuals and families dealing with issues such as PTSD, anxiety or depression. “We thought if we could come here to the base and buy coffee and get somebody’s attention, we just might be able to change somebody’s life in the meantime,” he said. Mr. Leadbeater has a strong tie to the military. He served 18 years in the Army as a medic from 1979 to 1995. He has now been an occupational therapist for 18 years, dealing regularly with veterans who now suffer from PTSD, anxiety or depression as a result of their service in places like Somalia or Rwanda. It is his aim to treat them and help get them out of the house and back to being productive members of the community. “They may not be working, they watch their spouse go off to work, they’re sitting on the couch watching TV and know there’s got to be more to life than just this and they don’t know where to turn,” he stated. “That’s when they make the phone call to Veteran’s Affairs and ask for help from an occupational therapist. “There may be a portion of the day they cannot deal with

because of a physical illness, an injury or mental health issues and we can get in there and help out,” he said. “We’re a very unique profession that way and nobody knows about us.” When he first got into the profession, Mr. Leadbeater recalls treating a lot of seniors needing grab bars, scooters, and wheelchairs but his clients have now changed somewhat to those receiving treatment for PTSD, anxiety, stress and depression. Also, the average age has dropped. “I still have some seniors to look after, but it’s the young guys you want to get to mould and get back to their life. We’re a small, tight community,” he said of the military and former military. He said over the years there has always been a common denominator of young people making selfless sacrifices for their country and that is unchanged. “Fifty years from now, I’ll guarantee you, our young troops will step up and be proud of our country,” he stated. He said Olympic athletes are often given notoriety for their accomplishments, and while he salutes their accomplishments, he notes it does not rank up there with the sacrifices many Canadian troops make.

County making plans to host ParaSport Games for the first time By John Campbell


News - Northumberland - The county will soon find out which sports will be played and where at the 2014 Ontario ParaSport Games that will be held in Northumberland next year. “We are currently looking at nine sports,” director of economic development Dan Borowec told county council recently, but none have been confirmed as yet as negotiations continue

with Sport Alliance Ontario. “This is bit of a complex affair,” Borowec said, because the planning involves making arrangements for all seven municipalities to share in the role of hosting the games May 30 to June 1, the first time they will be held in Northumberland. More than 425 participants, including athletes, coaches, managers, support staff and officials are expected to take

part during the three days of competition involving athletes with disabilities. “The community support for this has been significant,” Borowec said. The Games Organizing Committee, led by former MP Paul Macklin, has about 20 members looking after finances, human resources, sponsorships, fund raising, marketing, communications, technological support, online presence, sport venues and registration.

Borowec said the county is “well on the way” in its preparations for the games but it’s “also trying to manage expectations,” as to what they will mean for Northumberland, as it looks to sponsors to help fund the event. The county, when it made its bid, estimated the event could cost close to $250,000 but realize a profit of nearly $31,000. The provincial government is contributing $60,000.

There are more than 40 parasport organizations in the province but the county has to be “realistic” as to how many sports will be represented and the number of athletes that will be coming, he said in a later interview. “Some out there may think … we’ve got 4,000 folks coming,” Borowec said. “We’re not the Pan Am Games … We’re doing everything in our power to Continued on page B3

And on this farm he had a robot, E-I-E-I-O The labour-saving process is simple enough: Pellets cattle find tastier than the feed available elsewhere in the free stall environment—the “candy … they crave” contains a lot of the “starch and energy” in their diet. Lynn said it entices them to enter the unit where a sensor detects the animal’s presence. A robotic arm cleans its teats, attaches a milking machine, and removes the device when the milking is done. The cows, in effect, set their own schedule but an identification tag that each wears is read by the unit to prevent frequent feedings and ensure they’re being milked at appropriate intervals. “You don’t need to be there milking those cows because they’re milked through the whole day,” Ron said, and that frees up Ron Watson and his son Lynn did a fair amount of research before deciding to expand their operation north of Campbellford time to do other chores. The computerized system also on 7th Line East by building a barn with a robotic milking system. “It’s a big investment,” Lynn said, but the new system will reduce their workload and improve productivity. He said the technology is similar to that used in the car plant where he once spills out a wealth of data the Watsons will use to improve the worked. Photo: John Campbell By John Campbell

News - Trent Hills - Old MacDonald’s jaw would drop if he could see what’s taking place on dairy farms these days: automated milking. That will soon be the case for Ron Watson and his son Lynn who are expanding their dairy operation north of Campbellford using robotic technology. They currently milk 39 cows twice a day in a barn built in

1920 that is no longer big enough to meet their needs. “We’re crowded,” Ron said. “We wanted to build for the future.” They looked at various options and initially rejected the notion of using a robot because the technology is so expensive but further research that included trips to other parts of the province convinced the two men it “was a better way to go.”

There’s much more robotic milking being done in western Ontario, Ron said, but the technology is spreading eastward. Their barn, when finished, will be only the second of its kind in Northumberland County. When the 18,500-squarefoot building with attached milk house currently under construction is completed, it will include a single milking unit capable of handling up to 60 cows.

despite concerns expressed by some that lowering trade barriers could hurt Canada’s supply management system that has served milk producers so well. “I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to the politics side of it,” Ron said. “There’s nothing I can do to change it … Everybody has always been afraid of this happening, that happening.” There have been “a lot of times if you had done something and not listened to the naysayers, you’d have been further ahead. I like to think the industry will stay strong.” For dairy farmers to survive and do well, you have to reach a certain size “to be sustainable,” Lynn said. He and his father had hoped the new barn would be operating by now but with the delays the project has encountered, such as flooding at the site caused by heavy rains, it appears the earliest start date will be sometime in December.

Woodlot work poses numerous dangers By Richard Turtle

News - Ivanhoe - A lot of bad things can happen when you are alone in the woods with a chainsaw, says Sharlene Matacheskie, but understanding your environment and the dangers within can ultimately save your life. So, she says, “better a thousand times careful than one time dead.” Matacheskie, a certified First Aid Instructor who owns and operates Safety 4 All, provided an evening workshop at the Huntingdon Veterans Community Hall last week organized by the Quinte Chapter, Ontario Woodlot Association. And the message to the approximately 20 in attendance was clear: Be prepared. A range of injuries can result from manual work, and operating machinery of various types, she says, and in a solitary work environment the results, far more often and for obvious reasons, can be life-threatening. In many cases, such as heart attack, concussion, broken bones or being pinned by equipment or

falling debris, time is a critical factor and, “if nobody knows where you are, how are they going to come and get you?” In a best-case scenario, she says, cell phones with GPS offer an opportunity for quick location, but out of range of service or in need of a charge the devices can be rendered useless. Best for someone to know exactly where you are going and when you will be back, she says. And regardless of terrain or other obstacles, “if you got in there, [emergency crews] can get in there,” she adds. And in offering a time of return or contact, she says, a search can be initiated almost immediately if no word is received. Matacheskie also discussed the importance of carrying a first aid kit as well as the appropriate responses to various scenarios ranging from amputation to dehydration. Fatigue, she adds, is also a contributor to workplace accidents and everyone working alone should structure breaks regularly

throughout the day. And during those breaks, she says, “don’t be sharpening your saw.” Using training devices, Matacheskie also explained the use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and the benefits of a quick response to heart attack. And in all instances, she says, “think prevention first.” And in case of emergency, she adds, it is equally important to remain calm, think clearly and seek medical help. The evening workshop precedes several upcoming courses in November and December. Scheduled over two days and focusing on different aspects of Standard First Aid and CPR/AED, a session specific to the woodlot will be offered December 9 and 10 at the Red Cross building at 88 Parks Drive in Belleville. Full information on courses and registration is available by contacting Sharlene Matacheskie at 613-921-5541, visiting <> or emailing Using training devices, First Aid Instructor Sharlene Matacheskie demonstrates the proper use of an automated external defibrillator, like those seen in many public buildings. <>.

“We hear of the Olympics and [athletes] wearing the Canadian flag while we have troops wearing the Canadian flag for our country every friggin’ day and they don’t get the accolades that

they get from the Olympics,” he stated. “There’s a big difference between life and death in sports and life and death in the military situation. I’m proud to be able to work with veterans and those meant to be there.”

He says occupational therapy had its roots in World War I when the veterans returned to civilian life. “It’s an honour to be associated and have that strong link with the troops,” he added passionately.

engage as many sports as possible, plus make this as interesting for people as possible.” He told council it looks like two organizations that have never done an event together before, one representing golfers who are blind and the other representing golfers with physical disabilities, will join forces for a two-day event at next year’s games. “We’re in pretty good shape for the venues,” Borowec said, but it’s up to Parasport Ontario to decide where the games are to be played, “to make sure we have the facilities to match up with

their technical needs.” It’s “an involved process, we’re playing mix-and-match in order to make things work,” he said later. “We haven’t paired sites to sport yet.” Kari Spry, the county’s economic development co-ordinator who’s doubling as the games co-ordinator, said October 23 she’s hoping to make an announcement on the chosen sports and their venues “within a couple of weeks.” The Ontario ParaSport Games are designed to give host municipalities the opportunity to make their community barrier free and leave a legacy for citizens with a disability. Toward that end a special meeting

was held October 24 in Cobourg in which businesses were advised on how to make their premises barrier-free. One of the guest speakers, Warden Hector Macmillan, said it’s about “working toward becoming an all-inclusive community. Municipalities in the past didn’t recognize that there’s a lot of people who have some sort of impairment.” Making upgrades to remove barriers that have been in place for some time can be “a big challenge for some of our older heritage buildings,” he said, “but there is an economic benefit” for businesses to make their places accessible to all.

Trent Hills doctors go topless in support of breast cancer awareness

News - Trent Hills - A bevy of male doctors from Trent Hills have gone topless to support a local fund-raising initiative and to raise breast cancer awareness. The Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation (CMH Foundation) has produced two “Hooters for Healthcare” calendars to raise funds for the purchase of a new digital mammography machine for the hospital as part of the Flourish Campaign. Doctors Paul Williams, Glen Gibson, Neil Pritchard, Ian Park, Bob Henderson, Joe Barbero, and Brett Jamieson have all bared their chests to support the latest initiative. The campaign goal is $700,000. According to John Russell, executive director of the Foundation, a little more than half of the money has been raised so far through a variety of fund-raising ventures. Community support for the

campaign is strong evidenced by the number of cheque presentations published in the Trent Hills Independent. There are two calendars, one for 2014 and another for 2015 and they feature local women and men, discreetly posing topless and sharing their personal and inspirational stories about how breast cancer has touched their lives. The calendars were the idea of Flourish Campaign Co-ordinator Tonya McColl-Smith. As McColl-Smith explained, “The response to our call for calendar girls was so enthusiastic and included seven local male doctors who wanted to take part to show their support for the campaign and raise awareness that men can also get breast cancer.” “We were thrilled the doctors agreed to pose. The photo, featured on the September 2015 page, includes a touch of humour, while demonstrating their

dedication to fighting breast cancer,” she added. Laurie Smith, physician liaison for the Campbellford hospital, said, “the docs understand the importance of a well-equipped hospital and are always very supportive of the CMH Foundation’s fund-raising efforts.” She added, “Their photo is incredible and in a bold way demonstrates their passion and dedication to quality health care in the area.” The photos for the “Hooters for Healthcare” calendars were taken by Sarah Rowland of Creations Behind the Lens. The 2014 and 2015 calendars are $20 each and available at several locations in Trent Hills, including: the CMH Foundation office; The Holmestead Printing in Campbellford; the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation office; Earth Angel in Campbellford; Bridgewater Cof- Seven Trent Hills doctors are being featured in the 2015 “Hooters for Healthcare” calendar for the month of September, to fee and Donuts in Hastings; and raise funds for the purchase of a new digital mammography machine for the hospital and raise awareness about breast cancer.

Lifestyles - I often gaze wistfully at that fashionable fall outfit: an oversized tunic with a belt over leggings. It looks so comfy cozy. But even though I like it, I can’t quite bring myself to buy it. Leggings on someone on the wrong side of forty

The Good Earth: Lifestyles - It’s been a slow go the last week or so, Gentle Reader. I picked up a cold that just knocked me for such a loop that I wound up taking some days off of work. You know, you wake up feeling so-so, thinking you can get through the workday but shortly into it you realise that things just aren’t going so well. It’s a tough balance between getting the job done—and filling up the pay packet—and ducking the garlic that co-workers throw at you while hissing, “Go Home, you sick, infectious person!” As a direct result, we have our 5th Odds and Sods column for the year. O&S#1 Community Event #1 - Before illness laid me low, Mrs. Clost and I took in a special hockey game between the 8 Wing lads and a bunch of really plucky doctor types. It was a fund raiser as the TMHF folks were supporting a Wellness Fund for TMH staff. It’s a great cause and it was a hoot to watch; there is no doubt that hockey is an integral part of our culture. Some younger folks, though, seemed to have difficulty in figuring out the scoring difference between goals and assists; we did suggest to Cassandra that she ask Sylvain to explain it to her. Community Event #2 - I had the good fortune to visit with the Stirling Horticultural Society and I enjoyed my time with them. They’re a great group of people who fully understand the collegial approach to this wonderful hobby and certainly work together very nicely. It was surprising to learn that one could take a trip to many countries and not leave home. It is tough sometimes to make time in a busy season to get out to the clubs for talks and presentations but it is something most of us enjoy. The trick, for those of you who might want to include some horticulture in your speaker series, is to make contact far enough in advance so we can include the chat in our work plans. O&S #2 Plant Bulbs Now - This is the time to get your bulbs into the ground. True, there is still a month of planting but the days are fairly warm making the job more comfortable. Common advice is to plant the bulbs three times their measurement, e.g. a two-inch bulb gets buried six inches. I suggest you go a few inches deeper. There are two comments I’d like

I do not understand this helpless attitude, whether it’s about clothing choices or other teenage behaviours, and I would like to tell parents, loudly and clearly, you are the parent. You have the right, indeed the obligation, to set standards. If you do not exercise your right to act like a parent, then you are abdicating your responsibility to our culture. Our culture is the one that adores Miley Cyrus’ new persona. Do you really want to turn your child over to that? Parents should not feel guilty for acting like parents, and yet so many of us are insecure. Do we even have the right to tell our kids what to do, or what to wear? The insecurity is understandable. In 2008 in Quebec, a 12-year-old girl took her father to court for grounding her from a class field trip. She had been using the

to make about bulbs: I won’t write a whole article on them because all of the important info is readily available. Spacing: we sometimes get confused when planting large clumps or drifts and think we need to plant the bulbs close together. Not so, GR. Tulips, daffs and other larger bulbs need at least five inches of space. Once they pop up in the spring their foliage will want the chance to stretch out to maximise sun catching. You will still have a solid mass of colour and the plants will be happier. Smaller bulbs, such as muscari and crocus enjoy a three-inch buffer from their companwith real meat to it, and check out ions.

Internet inappropriately and sending inappropriate texts, so he put his foot down. She sued. And the Quebec courts, even on appeal, have decided the girl was right. With this sort of ridiculousness around us it’s easy to feel like we don’t have a right to demand things of our kids. The schools should raise them, and if our culture has decided that Miley’s antics are the new normal, who are we to say they’re wrong? We may be uncomfortable with all the texting, and with all the explicit shows kids watch, and with the sexual activity, but these things are normal today. To fight back is like trying to hold a tsunami at bay. It’s too much. Yet is it really? What does it matter what the rest of our culture says? It is not our culture that is going to have to deal with

the repercussions of a teenager dropping out of school, or feeling great shame for something he or she has done, or getting hooked on drugs. It is you, the parent. It is not our culture that will have to pick up the pieces, patch a broken heart, or help someone detox. It is not the school that will be there when a girl derails her educational future because she gets pregnant, or a boy decides to waste his life on video games instead of investing in college. It is you. You are the only one who loves your child more than life itself. You are the only one with a vested interest in how your child turns out. You’re the only one, then, that really matters. So do something! You have power. You control the Wifi, the television, and the money that pays for the cell phone. Use that power. Say no. Be a parent. And please, no tights.

doesn’t quite work for me, even if the tunic does cover a multitude of flaws. Yet increasingly leggings aren’t working even for those on the right side of forty, namely because people aren’t pairing them with long tunics; they’re wearing them with shorter shirts. What was once fashionable becomes floozy. It’s not even flirty; it’s just gross. There are some parts of one’s anatomy which should never be covered in thin, skin tight fabric. As terrible as it is when adult women commit this fashion fauxpas, it’s worse when teen girls do it, because it means some parent somewhere has allowed a child to dress in public like that. One mom I know is heartbroken about her daughter’s clothing but feels rather helpless. Her daughter refuses to wear anything except tights as pants.

Celebrating Hallowe’en around the world By John M. Smith

Lifestyles - It’s that time of year again when we buy candy and pass it out to young ghosts, goblins, and monsters that come to our doors on Hallowe’en (All-Hallows Even/“hallowed evening”), the night before All Hallows’ Day (All Saints’ Day). Many of us will carve out and light up pumpkins to welcome our visitors, and some of us will even decorate our yards with corn stalks, black cats, witches, and tombstones. It’s believed that this rather strange, unusual celebration has its roots in the Celtic festival of Samhein, which translates as “summer’s end,” a harvest festival; it celebrated the end of the “lighter half” of the year and the beginning of the “darker half” and was sometimes referred to as the “Celtic New Year.” The Celts thought the division between the world of the living and the Otherworld was blurred at this time, so the souls of the dead might be wandering about on this particular night; therefore, it was customary to build bonfires and light lanterns to ward off these spirits, and children wore costumes to blend in with them. This festival was particularly popular in Ireland and Scotland, and costumed children began going from door to door by the nineteenth century. They were given offerings of food, after all, it’s based on a harvest festival, for this served to ward off any potential spirits that might lurk among these visitors. These costumed children often carried a traditional lantern (“samhnag”), with a face carved in it to ward off evil spirits; these lanterns were made of a turnip, with a candle placed in the hollowed out inside. When many Scottish and Irish immigrants came to North America in the nineteenth century, Hallowe’en became very popular here, too; however, the turnip was replaced by the pumpkin, perhaps because they were larger and easier to carve, and plentiful. The earliest known reference to going door to door and asking for treats in our part of the world was in 1911, when a newspaper in nearby Kingston reported that it was normal for the smaller children to go street “guising” or dressing up in disguise, on Hallowe’en between 6 and 7 p.m., visiting shops and neighbours, and receiving nuts and candies. Hallowe’en has now become a giant commercial success in North America. I recently read that it generates sales of over 2 billion dollars, trailing only Christmas, with more candy sold than on Valentine’s Day and more parties held than on New Year’s Eve! Other parts of the world don’t necessarily celebrate this event with quite the same exuberance, but many places do acknowledge it in some special way. For example, in Austria, some people leave bread, water and a lit lamp on the table before retiring on Hallowe’en night, to welcome the dead souls back to earth. In Germany, knives are traditionally put away on Hallowe’en night because people don’t want to risk harm

Many costumed visitors are seen at Hallowe’en.

befalling the returning spirits. In Poland, doors and windows are left open to welcome the spirits, the visiting souls. In the Philippines and in Belgium, the custom is to light candles in memory of dead relatives. In Czechoslovakia, chairs are placed by the fireside: one chair for each living family member and one for each family member’s spirit. In China, the Hallowe’en festival is known as “Teng Chieh.” Food and water are placed in front of photographs of family members who have departed, and lanterns are lit in order to light the paths of the spirits as they travel the earth on this night. The Japanese celebrate the “Obon Festival” (also known as “Matsuri” or “Urabon”); it’s similar in that it’s dedicated to the spirits of ancestors; it’s a celebration of the memory of the dead. Special foods are prepared, and bright red lanterns

are set afloat; candles are lit and placed into lanterns which are then set afloat on rivers and seas to light the way for the dead souls returning to Earth. In much of Central and South America, children pay a visit to their neighbours on Hallowe’en and request candy by yelling “Dulce o Truco” (“Sweet or Trick”). In Brazil, the chant is “Travessuras ou gostosuras.” The Spanish name for Hallowe’en is “Noche de Brujas” or “Night of the Witches.” In Spain, a pastry named “Bones of the Holy” (shaped like skulls) is eaten on this particular day; it contains anise

seed and is covered in an orange glaze. Families then go to the cemetery to visit deceased family members, keeping vigil throughout the night, and the next day is spent cleaning the family burial plots. Hallowe’en in Romania is celebrated around the myth of Dracula, particularly in Transylvania, so you’ll find many vampire parties here. The area was also the site of many witch trials, and these are re-enacted by actors on this night. Indeed, October’s ending is often celebrated/acknowledged throughout this world, but in different ways.

News - Northumberland - The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between Canada and the European Union (EU) is “good for Canada for a whole whack of reasons,” says the MP for NorthumberlandQuinte West. But its critics need to take off “the mantle of negativity” in order to see the good that will come in gaining greater access to a market of 500 million people that generates about $17 trillion in economic activity, Rick Norlock said. He cited a joint CanadaEU study that concluded the trade agreement “could bring a 20 per cent boost in bilateral trade and a $12 billion annual increase to Canada’s economy … [the] equivalent of adding $1,000 to the average Canadian family’s income or almost 80,000 new jobs to the Canadian economy.” When the agreement in principle comes into force within the next two years among its many provisions are the elimination of tariffs on Canadian goods entering the EU market, and approval to ship an additional 50,000 tonnes of beef a year, worth about $600 million, and an extra 80,000 tonnes of pork, worth roughly $400 million. CETA will also allow for an unlimited amount of Canadian cheese to be exported to the EU while opening up the Canadian market to European cheeses by an additional four cent annually, to 30,000 tonnes, more than double what is currently allowed. Ron Versteeg, vice president of the Dairy Farmers of Canada, told CBC News it is “a bit discouraging to see something that we’ve put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into developing … sort of eroded and given away to the Europeans.” But the impact on domestic cheese makers “will be nullified” by the projected growth in cheese consumption in Canada, Norlock said, so the effect “will basically be neutral.” He said the reaction of dairy farmers has been

“doom and gloom” in fearing the agreement could mark “the beginning of the slippery slope” leading to the end of supply management that controls the production of milk and sets prices. But they “will lose in the court of public opinion when people know the facts about this,” he said. The “negative part” is having “a bit more cheese” allowed into Canada,” but on the positive side, “we can ship as much cheese as we want to 500 million people who like cheese.” The federal government has also said it will compensate milk producers “if it can be proven” the trade agreement has “adversely affected them,” Norlock said. Warkworth-area dairy farmer Sid Atkinson, a member of the board of directors for the Dairy Farmers of Ontario, said CETA’s provisions affecting his industry came “as “a shock for sure, but the reality is trade is necessary for this country and … to stand in the way of a country’s prosperity is a losing game; dairy farmers realize that.” If the trade deal is “going to do as much for the country as they say it is, everybody’s going to be happy.” Atkinson said Canadian dairy farmers can “compete quite handily” with their European counterparts, but “we get our revenue from the consumers” alone whereas dairy farmers overseas have their incomes “topped up with subsidies [that] are not coupled to production. “It just puts us at a competitive disadvantage when we’re not getting any subsidies for our production,” Atkinson said. “I personally prefer getting our revenue from the market; it’s more stable that way. There’s no sense asking the consumer to pay you twice,” at the cash register and then through taxes, he said. “We can compete with almost anyone in the world” but going up against the treasuries of other countries “adds a new layer of stress to it,” Atkinson said. “The fact the

government has said we will watch out for you and compensate you for losses … is a bit of relief.” Jack Oliver, general manager of Empire Cheese outside Campbell-

ford, isn’t worried about more competition from across the ocean. “I don’t think it will hurt Empire Cheese too much,” he said, because of the quality of product the farmer

co-operative produces, and the fact that a strong part of its business is from the sale of curds, which “definitely won’t be coming over.” Empire also has “a pretty faith-

ful clientele,” said Oliver, who has received phone calls from people saying “you don’t need to worry … we’re going to continue to buy your cheese.”

Committee hopeful of beer fest return

See it Feel it

By Richard Turtle

LIVE it. Yardmen Arena • Puck Drops 7:05PM

News - Stirling - Municipal officials are optimistic the Hastings County Beer Festival will return to the township next year following a meeting earlier this week marking the deadline for proposals to organize and run the event. Members of the Stirling-Rawdon Economic Development Committee met Monday night, with the future of the annual festival being the primary agenda item. After operating the event in October for its first two years, the original organizers cancelled plans for this year despite attracting significant crowds in the past. But there have been several supporters, including members of the Economic Development Committee, who have been

working toward its return. Agreeing it is a positive attraction for the area, committee members listened to three potential candidates at Monday night’s meeting and also received written submissions from others. In the end, the committee opted to recommend that Philip Dangerfield be considered as their first choice, having a knowledge of the area and significant experience that includes producing the National Capital Craft Beer Festival in Ottawa , now in the planning stages for its third year of operation. Committee member and Councillor Bob Mullin says both the number and the quality of submissions were impressive, particularly given the short timeframe. “I’m really pleased with the level of interest we’re getting with this,” he noted, with his colleagues agreeing there is plenty of reason for optimism. Noted Dangerfield in his proposal, “Craft beer is a fantastic platform to showcase local and regional artisans, talent and business and is a key part of the formula that we use to produce our festivals. Previous Hastings County Beer Festivals have featured craft beers and ciders for sampling, as well as food and live entertainment and submitted proposals received by the committee suggested a similar format with Farmtown Park the preferred location. Committee members, including Farmtown Park board member Ron Reid, also discussed pricing as well potential dates and the availability of the museum but ultimately agreed those decisions would be determined in large part by the organizers.

News - Campbellford â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m living in the 21st century so I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be St. Brigid of Kildare but we want to deliver the spirit of who she was,â&#x20AC;? said Angelica Ottewill. A talented harpist who combines trobairitz music and storytelling as a modern day expression of medieval times, she will be performing the first of a new series called Daring Daughters of the Faith at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, Campbellford, in November. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a fund raiser for the church. Half the proceeds go to the church and half to myself and my music partner VĂŠronique Kwakkernaat, a flutist from Brighton. Lianne Harris of Toronto does the lyrics and prose and receives royalties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new series is a musical odyssey of early sainted women,â&#x20AC;? said Ottewill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of wonderful stories and ballads from the medieval times. It was a very romantic period â&#x20AC;Ś weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking King Arthur and the crusades. I have several stories I tell with harp accompaniment,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trobairitz is a name they gave to women troubadours around the 12th century,â&#x20AC;? she explained. Ottewill became passionate about the harp three decades ago and mastered the lever harp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a very expressive instrument. The first time I made a sound with this harp it was like the sound went right through me to my soul and I thought I have to have one of these. It was a crystallizing moment,â&#x20AC;? said Ottewill. That is when this classi-

cally trained music singer, who was a teacher for 32 years, decided to learn to play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Harps are difficult to play. It can take months for me to be comfortable with a piece,â&#x20AC;? she commented. As past president of the Ontario Folk Harp Society, Ottewill has presented concerts and workshops throughout Ontario. Her performances include lively participatory stories, humorous tales and exciting romantic epics. Stories range from medieval to international folk tales, and the music from Celtic to contemporary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The performance about St. Brigid is about one hour 15 minutes. I tell the story of her life interspersed with traditional Celtic music and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve included some contemporary sacred music,â&#x20AC;? said Ottewill. The performers will be dressed in Medieval costumes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;St. Brigid was made a saint before the official canonization process ever took place,â&#x20AC;? she noted. Born around 450 into a Druid family she decided to become a Christian at an early age, eventually taking vows as a nun. Together with a group of other women, she established a nunnery at Kildare. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was educated as a Druid priestess,â&#x20AC;? said Ottewill. She has already taken her performance to Belleville and Peterborough. Ottewill has a CD called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aires of Enchantmentâ&#x20AC;? and more information about her can be found online at: <>. Her husband Mike, an electrical engineer, did all the recording and mixing

in their home-based studio as well as the cover photo. The couple has a house in Toronto but is in the midst of building a home in Trent River.

CMH Auxiliaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraising Christmas bazaar News - Campbellford - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that time of year again, time for the Campbellford Memorial Hospital Auxiliaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas Bazaar. Auxiliary President Norah McGowan and Carol Mitchell are co-convenors this year. The luncheon will still be $6.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be having hot foods this year, but our Unique Boutique will be returning,â&#x20AC;? noted Judy McLean, press and publicity co-ordinator. The Boutique was a sell-out last year and featured once loved and well cared for items and accessories, purses, belts, shoes.  The popular Book Barn will also be returning.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;People missed the Book Barn last year,â&#x20AC;? explained McLean. John Marvin, who is in charge of this part of the bazaar, is putting the authors in alphabetical order so that it will be easier for shoppers to find an author that they enjoy.  There will, of course, be plenty of

homemade ware: baked goods and knitted and hand-sewn items. Christmas items from the Auxiliary Gift Shop will be featured as well.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to have an overflowing bake table too,â&#x20AC;? said McLean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our bazaar is always a great opportunity to get out, get a head start on Christmas, buy your baking [and go home and throw flour on your face to prove that you slaved over the oven making it] sit and have lunch, run into friends, do some Christmas shopping while supporting your local hospital,â&#x20AC;? she said enthusiastically. Look for posters around town promoting the fund-raising bazaar which takes place November 9 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.  Parking will be in the lot behind St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church on Bridge Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an event going on at the Legion next door and so people are being asked not to use their parking,â&#x20AC;? said McLean.

Card of Thanks

While a patient at Kingston General Hospital I had time to think about how truly thankful I am for all those people who were so supportive, loved and cared for me. First of all to my family for the many hours spent by my side my sincere thanks. To Dr. Michael Leveridge and his associates, thank you. For all the cards, phone calls, flowers, fruit baskets, visits and inquires I am most grateful. Each one provided a special lift. Most importantly to all those who have been praying for me throughout this ordeal just know that your prayers have been answered and I am on the road to recovery. May God richly bless you.

Thank You, HTM Insurance I want to thank the directors of HTM Insurance for the gifts I received as I retire. For over 20 years I have been proud to represent HTM Insurance as a director. My wife Helen & I have met a great group of people when we travelled to insurance functions across Canada/USA. I also met a lot of genuine policy holders when I was adjusting claims. I congratulate my successor Nancy Brown and wish her well. Thanks for the memories. Gene Brahancy

A championship pedigree gets dogs into the show By Steve Jessel

News - Belleville - Puppy treats and squeaky toys were in high demand at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre this past weekend for the Belleville and District Kennel Club’s Championship Shows, and for show chairperson Gail Giles, there’s one thing that keeps her coming back for more. “We love our dogs,” she said with a smile. “My husband calls it the most expensive hobby in the world.” More than 800 dogs of every breed, shape colour and size packed themselves into the Yardmen Arena over three days of competition from October 25 to 27, all with their eyes set on one prize: best in show. However, to reach that lofty goal, canine competitors must prove themselves as the best of their breed in the eyes of the judges, who grade the animals based on exacting written standards for each breed of dog. “Each dog has a standard that they have to conform to, and they’re all different,” said Michael Gelinas, a veteran judge of 20 years. “Certain breeds [interest people] and certain dogs [don’t] but you still have to judge the dog against their conformations.” The canine competition is far from the only attraction at the annual show, as for many long-time competitors and breeders it becomes a chance to reconnect with old friends. Participants travel from across Canada and even the U.S. to attend the championship, and for local resident Breezy Powell it’s hard to stay away. “We enjoy seeing friends and the Dogs are each graded on specific breed standards before moving on to social aspect, along with showing nice group competition. Here, Jan Cunningham leads Liam, a soft-coated dogs … the competition is fun,” she said. Wheaton Terrier through the judging area.

Handler Hailey Griffith carefully grooms Shetland Sheepdog Zippy ahead of competition during the Belleville and District Kennel Club’s Championship shows this past weekend.

Powell said she’s not as active on the competition circuit as she used to be, but living in nearby Shannonville the Belleville show is practically “in her backyard.” Powell said she showed three dogs during the Saturday competition, and explained a bit of the process that goes into preparing a dog for show. “When you’re not showing, you do a lot of physical conditioning,” she said. “They have to be athletic, they have to be in good health, good body weight, and they have to have a

lot of socialization and a good temperament.” Temperament is the first thing Giles, a breeder herself, said she looks for in a new litter of animals. After genetic testing to make the sure the animal is sound and in good health, dogs can expect a veritable whirlwind of training and socialization in preparation for their big day under the lights. “I don’t keep a dog unless I feel the temperament is good and strong,” Giles said. “Then I take it to dog shows, I take it

to handling classes, I take it to PetSmart, I take it all over the place.” While not every dog is able to win best in show, placing well during competition garners valuable points toward the overall rankings by the Canadian Kennel Club, which sanctions both the event and the local club. “The best in show is the epitome of it all, but you can certainly become a champion without ever getting a best in show,” Giles said.
