w w w.s t lawre nce po o l s. ca SPRING 2009 COUNTY & QUINTE LIVING 3

Life in the County has become
County & Quinte Living
Spring is a time of new beginnings and a new beginning for the magazine is the change of name.
Since the spring of 2008, the area outside the County has been included in the content; we felt
it was now time to include it in the title, too.

As we grow, a new Advertising Sales Manager has been added to the team. Mandy Bradford,
a former resident of Colborne now living in Picton has an excellent sales and marketing
background and such a cheerful smile that I knew on our first meeting she would be a perfect fit
for the magazine. I’m sure those that have met her will agree.

Years ago as a cottager on Lake Consecon, I passed by the church located at the crossroads of
County Roads 1 and 2 many times. It’s a beautiful solid structure I have always admired and I
am delighted to feature this amazing home in this issue.

For those cleaning their golf clubs and dreaming about their first tee off, Jodie Jenkins, J.J. The Golf Guy, has written a great review of the local
courses and lets you know which club opens first. Live theatre is alive and well in this area. Debra Tosh writes on the newest theatre groups and
on one of the oldest, The Belleville Theatre Guild.

This year we will feature two series: one on sustainable living and the other on eating clean. Sustainable living is the new “buzz”, but what is it
really? Garnet McPherson answers that question and makes us think about our environment and our future on this earth in a way we may not
have before. In the eating clean series, Kathy Terpstra will have you considering what you put into your body every day.

The Bay of Quinte is not only one of the best places in the province for fishing and boating, it is also home to many plant and wildlife species.
We are pleased to feature the positive efforts being made by many organizations to revitalize the Bay.

Spring means buds, flowers, and birds, so who better to describe this special time of year than Carolyn Lecker of Black Walnut Gardens. You
will be inspired. Have a wonderful spring.

Still with all the charm and promise that is spring comes a
need for real buckling down. Over the winter Black Walnut
Gardens is a mish mash of burlapped walls, cones and
unremarkable structures. Now burlap and stakes are removed,
herbaceous plants and shrubs cut back or appropriately pruned.
Old annuals need composting. Soil needs amending. Divide.
Divide. Thousands of seeds will be sown. Vegetables, flowers,

larger clay pots need sterilizing and setting out for use.

I am cheered on by nature’s creatures. Clearing off the mulch,

things scurry around and underneath me. When cleaning bird
houses, the birds attend in anticipation. Some shop for nearby

predators. A time of preparation, exhaustion, renewal. Ah,
spring. Let the symphony begin.

The Bowerman Church, built as a
Wesleyan Methodist Church, has been
a Gothic landmark at the junction of
County Rd. #1 and County Rd. #2,
known to many as simply “the four
corners”, for over 150 years. Surrounded
by mature black locust trees on 6 acres
of land, the entrance to the property is
a circular driveway that leads to the front
door of this stunning residence. Sitting in
stillness and grandeur, this architectural
monument beckons the casual passer-by
to at least hazard a second glance.

Bowerman Church
On the diagonal corner sits the original Bowerman home.
The Bowerman home, formerly a tavern, welcomed the weary
traveller as it is situated ideally, halfway between Consecon and
Picton. The connection between the two is both humorous and
profound. To more fully appreciate the relationship between
these two buildings and, specifically, how and why the Bowerman
Church was built, a few details of history may be helpful.


Many of the settlers of Prince Edward County in the early

1800s originated in New York State. Being Quakers, they were
pacifists. They refused to defy Britain; refused to take part in
the war of independence. Their lives centred around simplicity,
plain dress, and abstinence. Marriage outside of the Society of
Friends, as they called themselves, resulted in the ouster of a
member. Nonetheless, Thomas Bowerman Jr. did just that and,
as the son of one of the area’s leading Quaker families, actually
donated land to the Methodist community for the construction
of a church. The year was 1855.

One essential piece of information has yet to be disclosed and,

as a visit to the County archives will verify, the construction of
the church was greatly due to penance – that of Mr. Bowerman!
He needed to get back into the good graces of his wife:

“Mrs. Thomas Bowerman was, in many respects, a remarkable woman
and it was largely due to her untiring efforts—her life and incidents
which led to the building of the Church is, indeed, worthy of note


Thomas Bowerman started – what was
called in those days a tavern. After he had
continued to carry on the business for some
time. His wife was determined to put an end
to it and to accomplish this she took an axe
and went down into the cellar where the
barrels of whiskey were, and she broke in
the heads of the barrels and emptied out all
the whiskey.

This incident led to a revival, and her son, who

afterwards became the Rev. George Young, was
converted. Hence the building of the Bowerman’s
Church. Mr. Bowerman, himself, gave the land for
the building of the Church, and Mr. Daniel Pettet
gave the land for Bowerman’s Cemetery.”


The Bowerman Church has withstood many

storms and many
transitions. In 1968
it ceased to function
as a church and was
sold to the highest
bidder. After a short
life as a tea room,
it later became the
home and gallery of Photo Courtesy of Elliott Sage
celebrated County
artist Norah Schneider. The “Grey Stone
Gallery” was well known to locals as well as to
tourists. In 1999, a major fire (9 fire trucks from
four districts were summoned!) actually gave
the church a new life. Much of the building was
reconstructed and re-engineered. Blueprints
show new steel beams replacing the original
hand-hewn timbers. Foam insulation was
applied to all limestone interior walls with the
exception of the area surrounding the wood
stove, which now is used as the primary source
of heating.

What seems to set off the Bowerman Church

from so many other churches in the County are
the windows. Fashioned from B.C. fir, the inset
mullions divide each window into 32 panes,
topped by a Gothic cone or arch. Each window
is 14 feet high and there are no less than eight.
With the exception of only the front east window
all 14 (of 16) cones are hinged and open inward.
Screen mesh keeps out most insects when the
cones are open to absorb the county breezes.
Perhaps second only to the beauty of the windows
is the limestone that houses them. This limestone
is almost 24 inches thick and is capped by a
pitched roof line that extends the front and
rear limestone facades with moulded wooden
soffit and gentle gable returns typical of this period

On a somewhat more personal basis, what makes

this building so special is its understated


simplicity and lack of
pretension. Internally
there are 3 floors, accessed
by both front and rear
staircases. But it is the
windows, particularly, that
let abundant natural light
permeate the building on
the first and second floors.
And to further enhance the
flow of light, several original
windows that were saved
after the fire have been
relocated above and beside
internal doors. Yet at night,
when the electric lights are
on, the building appears to
take on the surreal aspect
of a doll’s house. People on
the outside can clearly see in on both levels simultaneously as
there are no window dressings.

The Right Choice

As current owners, the ultimate question is whether the move

(on a whim) from Unionville to our present locale was a wise
decision. After all, we both gave up well-paying jobs and knew
virtually nobody and nothing of century buildings and their
inherent challenges. Knowing that our choice to take the plunge
and roll the dice just felt “right”, we did just that. Instinct can be
a wonderful guide.

Three and a half years later, we can say unequivocally our decision
to relocate was more than we could have ever planned. The County
of Prince Edward is rich in friendliness, history, and recreation.
Whether we sit by the fire that eternally attempts to heat this
grand old building during the long cold winter months, or bask
in the summer sunlight on the front porch, we know that we have
arrived where we were destined to be.

CLEANWhat you put in your body counts!
Have you ever wished that you had more energy?
Ever wondered why you feel sluggish and seem
to pick up every cold that comes within 10 km
of you? Are you carrying around an extra 10,
20, or 50 lbs. that you just can’t seem to get rid
of? Have I got your attention yet?

Welcome to this series of articles on

clean eating! Join me this year as
I attempt to introduce you to a
way of nourishing your body
that will increase your energy,
help you lose the extra
weight you are carrying
around, make your skin
glow, and boost your self-
esteem. We all know that
when we do something
good for ourselves – we
feel good about life!

Let’s start by going over

some information that you
probably already know but
it will set the stage for what
is to follow. We all know how
we should eat but sometimes
(most of the time!) we don’t get
around to doing that. We lead busy
lifestyles and the food companies have
come to our “rescue” by producing a ton of
convenient foods for us to buy. The problem
with most of this convenient food is that it
is sorely lacking in the nutrients that our
bodies need to properly function and repair
When we eat, our body looks over the nutrients
that we have fed it and then uses what it can.
If the nutrients that our bodies need are not
present, our bodies signal to us that we are
hungry again. Think about this next statement

The less processed the food is, the more nutrients it has to fuel
your body. It’s about making better food choices so that you do
not go hungry. Clean food is low in fats, salt, and sugar. Eating
clean means that you choose fruits instead of fruit juices, fresh
vegetables instead of salt-laden canned vegetables, whole-grain
bread and oatmeal rather than white bread and sugary cereals,
water over alcohol or soda, and a bowl of berries for dessert
instead of a bowl of ice cream.

There are several other principles that go along with an eating

clean lifestyle:

 at 5 or 6 small meals every day;
 at every 2-3 hours to maintain blood sugar levels;
 rink at least 2 litres, or 8 cups, of water each day;

 at a balanced diet consisting of proteins, carbohydrates,
and fats;

and enzymes;

 void calorie-dense foods that contain little nutritional

I’m sure that you looked at the point of eating 5 or 6 small

meals a day and thought “if I eat that much food, I’ll gain more
weight than ever!” There is a method behind this thought.
Each of these meals should consist of approximately 300-400
calories. When we consume less than 1200 calories per day,
our bodies go into starvation mode. The body, not knowing .OWFEATURING(ANDCRAFTED&URNITURE

A lot of women in particular, have a love-hate relationship

with food. We can change that relationship by changing the
quality of food that we put into our mouths. So let’s embark on
a mission together: one that will empower you to make change,
one that will change the way you feel about your body, and one $ETAILFROMANORIGINALOILONCANVASBY4AMMY3HANE

Town Hall.
Their inaugural show was The Murder Room, a comedy thriller by Jack Sharkey
last November. It starred Lewis Frape, Helen Wells (a.k.a Lenni Stewart), Susan
Matthews, Sid Wells, Hilary Hunter, and Mike Zaffino. Their second show
was Special Occasions, a romantic comedy by Bernard Slade. The two-hander
starred Wendy Hay of Bloomfield and Fennell himself, with a dinner theatre
package available for Valentine’s Day. How the Other Half Loves, a comedy
about three couples by Alan Ayckbourn will be held in May.
Fennell first got involved in musical theatre in 1988, when his children were
taking classes at the Dance Den in Belleville. He discovered that he liked it
and performed in a few shows for them. In 1995, he joined Domino Theatre
in Kingston, where he performed and directed through 2006. His first show
with The Belleville Theatre Guild was in 1999. Fennell said he has lots of
good memories and appreciates all the opportunities he has been offered. He
is incorporating everything that he has learned into his recent productions.
Retired from teaching since June 2007, he plans to build on the company’s
initial success with a second season.

The Empire began in 1939, as the McCarthy Theatre, one of three movie theatres
that dotted Front Street in Belleville. By the early 60s, the theatre had closed
its doors and eventually became the home of a popular sports and hobby store,
Stephen License Ltd.

In 2002, Mark Rashotte, also a professional musician and recording artist with
Capitol Records in the 1980s, and his wife Rose Mary Rashotte, purchased
the McCarthy building. Mark’s years of touring and performing provided him
with a unique insight as to what a performing arts centre should provide both
the audience and entertainer. The result is the current state-of-the-art 700-seat
gem, which includes two licensed lounges. The theatre is described by many
performers and patrons as one of the finest in Ontario.

Since The Empire’s grand opening in September of 2003, there has been no
looking back as it continues to host top national and international performers.
From pop, rock, blues, jazz, country, and classical, it all happens at The Empire

Those who have graced the stage range from comedic giants Bob Newhart
and The Smothers Brothers; Canada’s top bands, Great Big Sea, Blue Rodeo,
and The Tragically Hip; folk and blues legends, Judy Collins and Buddy Guy;
contemporary and traditional country favourites from Johnny Reid and Tommy
Hunter, to international stage shows Bowfire and Barrage.

The theatre’s movie history continues to be honoured with the screening of

current acclaimed films, complemented by the venue’s big screen and sound
system, all in the comfort and style of the grand movie theatre era. Cafe e Eatery
and Empire Square Live, an outdoor concert facility for 3000-plus people, are
now welcome additions to the Empire.

The spin-off effect on Belleville’s once struggling downtown is there for all to
see. Restaurants are buzzing with pre-show concert goers and hotels are booking
to capacity with out of town guests coming to see their favourite performer.

Those who have lived in Belleville for generations are pinching themselves and
those who are new to our community are simply amazed.

Andy Forgie is the Promotions Manager for The Empire Theatre

& Centre for the Performing Arts. Andy continues to perform,
internationally, with Mark Rashotte in “All You Need Is Love”,
a celebration of the Beatles.

What is
any way?
My grandfather used to say that “it is not what
happens to you that matters, but what you do
about it that will make the difference in your life”.
The same could be said of our society and, in fact,
our species.
Times are always changing and clearly each generation has its challenge
to meet. It seems that ours, as it turns out, is pivotal to the future of
mankind and all life as we know it on this planet. We did not ask
for this to be on our plate, but neither did other generations get to
choose the lesson of their times. Their success always depended on
their ability to identify the problem and to come up with creative and
effective solutions to address the problem. From many perspectives,
there is only one success that counts right now and it all starts with
understanding what it means to be sustainable.
As director of the Earthwalk Sustainable Living Center near
Colborne, Ontario, I travel the country speaking to a wide variety
of institutions and organizations on the subject of creating a sustainable
society. I am talking to thousands of people each month about the
subject of sustainability yet I have found that a great number of people
don’t have a clear concept about what sustainability really means.


The best answer would be H. Sustainability is, in many ways, a
different way of thinking.

Sustainable living and sustainability mean different things

to different people. However, it has come to mean the ability
to meet present needs without damaging or depleting the
environmental, economic, or social resources that future
generations will need.

In short, sustainability is the ability to provide for the needs of

the world’s population without damaging the ability of future
generations to provide for themselves. When a process is truly

The large scale studies on biodiversity that produce data on
terrestrial, marine, and freshwater species from around the
earth, are showing alarming trends in our biosphere. We are
seeing declining populations in all three. Between 1970 and
2003, the index for all of these ecosystems fell by about 30%.
This worldwide trend suggests that we have been degrading
our natural ecosystems at a rate that is truly unprecedented
in human history. Species are going extinct at a rate of over
20,000 species per year and climbing and many are arguing
that we may be on the threshold of another great extinction n`k_fm\i(''p\Xijf]\og\i`\eZ\#

The uncomfortable and inconvenient truth is that the

evidence that we are heading for a potential ecosystem
collapse has become overwhelming and this time we
cannot put off until tomorrow the actions needed
yesterday. In a sense we have upset Nature’s apple cart and
unless we can get it all tidied up in a big hurry there may not

sustainability and all of the solutions that each of us can do to

Trillium Wood Golf Club Picton Golf Course - Photo by:Pat Lacroix

Trillium is probably one of the better-known courses in the area

because of its beautiful layout and its level of customer service.
It is not unusual to see the GM out welcoming players and even
assisting in unloading your bag onto your cart. At Trillium,
because of the tree-lined fairways, it often seems like you have
the entire course to yourself. This is a great track for easing
you in with some scoring chances in the early going then you
encounter a stretch of 3, 4 and 5, which can often indicate what
your round will end up looking like. Bentgrass tees, greens,
and fairways are second to none and the maintenance team
does an amazing job. Trillium also operates a great dining area
that is perfect for grabbing a bite before or after the round. I
recommend the Trillium club sandwich and kettle chips.

Trenton Golf Club

Hands down, one of the most necessary courses in the area
because it is almost always the first to open! To someone who
loves golf, being able to play before any other course opens is
something we look forward to and often spend nights dreaming
of. This course offers 9 holes of great fun, perfect for honing
some shots early on in the season and is also a great place
to work on chipping. A great deal for the wallet and you can
certainly make this course one of the first you visit for 2009.

This is an Azinger-designed championship length track that

allows golfers of any level to enjoy their round without
wanting to snap their 7 iron in half. Another attractive aspect
at Wellington is their aquatic driving range that allows players
to hone their craft before a round or even just to head out and
practice. Play some golf, visit a winery and enjoy the County.
Sounds like a plan!

A Revitalization for
The Bay of Quinte
to save
our water

What was wrong with the Bay

It has been twenty-three years since the Bay of Quinte was identified as a
pollution hot spot, known as an “Area of Concern”, by the International Joint
Commission (a century old Canadian-American Great Lakes watchdog). The
Bay of Quinte is a 100-kilometre Z-shaped waterbody that stretches between
Trenton and Bath and is primarily fed by the Trent, Moira, Salmon, and
Napanee rivers. The impaired water quality in the Bay of Quinte was the
result of industrial, agricultural, and household practices that degraded the
Bay’s ecosystem. There was an influx of contaminants such as toxic chemicals,
fecal coliform bacteria, and eutrophic causing nutrients (i.e., phosphorus).
The inland and coastal wetlands of the Bay watershed were also partially or
completely lost with many others becoming unsuitable for fish and wildlife.

Times of Change
Thanks to the combined efforts of the Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan
team, Quinte Conservation, Lower Trent Conservation, Cataraqui Region
Conservation Authority, enthusiastic volunteers, landowners and the general
public, the ecosystem and water quality in the Bay has improved significantly.
The Remedial Action Plan, commonly known as the ‘Big Cleanup’, as noted
by Jeff Borisko, Implementation Manager for the Bay of Quinte Remedial
Action Plan, “is an ecosystem approach in restoring and protecting the Bay
by recognizing the complex interrelationships between water, land, air, and all
living things – including people”.

The Plan is implemented in three stages: the first stage defines the problem,
the second stage recommends and implements actions to restore the ecosystem,
and the third stage monitors its success. Currently, the Bay of Quinte has
completed stage two and is projected to complete stage three within the next



couple of years, thus changing the status farming practices. Greener industrial
of the Bay as an “Area of Concern” to an practices have also resulted in less toxic
“Area in Recovery”. The restoration of discharges and, with much thanks to the
the Bay has resulted in a reduction of community, many shorelines have been
phosphorus loadings by half, thanks restored and wetlands rehabilitated.

How you can help
Environmental stewardship starts with you! Whether you are a
resident, farmer, or business owner your daily routine will have
an impact on the local water resources. And, since the Bay is
part of a very large watershed (over 18,000 square kilometres),
your local actions ultimately influence the health of the Bay.
So, have your septic systems maintained regularly and try to
reduce fertilizer and manure application, especially before the
spring melt and during storm events. Bring hazardous wastes

such as chemicals, pesticides, and paints to your local waste

Generations For Peace
Generations For Peace is an initiative conceived and implemented by HRH Prince Feisal bin Al-
Hussein of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Son of the late King Hussein and a committed
proponent of peace, Prince Feisal has laid the groundwork for a global movement that is building
peace amongst young people in areas experiencing conflict and hostility. As an avid sportsman,
Prince Feisal believes sport can gather young people together in order to instill understanding,
tolerance, and respect.

With a background in international development through sport, I was asked to modify materials
prepared by the Coaching Association of Canada and research on conflict, program management,
advocacy, and leadership, into educational modules for the Peace Pioneer Certification Program
(PPCP). The PPCP is offered through Peace Camps which include workshops, interactive seminars,
presentations, debates, role playing, simulations, case studies, and sport sessions.

I was Lead Facilitator for the 08 Generations For Peace Camp held in Amman, Jordan from
November 26 to December 6, 2008. Seventy-one delegates from 16 war-torn countries (Afghanistan,
Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Lesotho, Liberia, Nigeria, Palestine, Sierra Leone, Sri
Lanka, Sudan, Togo, Uganda, and Zimbabwe) attended the 10-day camp supported by 25 staff from
Canada, Dubai, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Nigeria, USA, and the UK.

The United Nations, UNICEF, the United Nations Development Program, the British Council,
and National Olympic Committees recommended delegates. Although most of the delegates come
from difficult situations, they have all made a commitment to peace building. Beyond conflict issues
such as the child soldier, tribal, religious and ethnic clashes, and refugees and displaced persons,
the 08 Camp focused on integrating those usually excluded from community life, such as girls and
women, persons with disabilities, and orphans.


The goal of the Peace Camp is to equip the graduate Peace
Pioneers with the necessary tools, knowledge, and practical
support to return to their communities and bring people in
conflict together through a Generations For Peace program.

I will be continuing as Lead Facilitator for the 2009 Camp

in Abu Dhabi, March 1 to 10, hosted by Sheikh Hamdan bin
Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State
for Foreign Affairs of the United Arab Emirates. Most of the
delegates will be from Asia and the Middle East, including
Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, and

08 Camp Delegate Michael Olufemi Sodipo

of Nigeria
Michael escaped with his life when his house was ambushed
by a mob sweeping through his town of Kano. His car was
firebombed and his house destroyed simply because he comes
from the southern part of the country. The mob searched for
him for five terrifying hours before moving on to their next
target. “Whilst I was hiding, I could see and hear that the mob
was made up of young boys. They were no older than teenagers
and yet you could see the hatred clearly on their faces. I knew
then that I had to try and do something to make a difference.
These boys had not been given a chance at life.” Michael
founded Nigeria’s Peace Initiative Network and is incorporating
skills learned at Camp 08 to engage 14- to 18-year-olds from 50
ethnic backgrounds. “It’s all about how peace education and
sport can now play a major role in what we are trying to do in

Camp Delegate Samuel Ahmed Tukpah of
Samuel works with children who were abducted by rebels
to become child soldiers. Their stories are horrific. “They
have seen and done things no child should,” he said. Samuel
is working to re-integrate child soldiers, now young men,
into their community by having them build a sport centre,
developing skills, such as carpentry, plumbing, and painting.
When the centre is completed, these former child soldiers
will become leaders in offering sport programs for children
and youth.

Working with leaders from the Middle East, surrounded by

nations in conflict and yet committed to peace, gives me
hope for a better future. Some of the conflicts are centuries
old and to think we can resolve and build world peace is
not realistic. However, if we work with children to build
new attitudes of tolerance and respect – developing the next
generation as a “generation for peace” – then we can make
a difference.

Talking to
Sick People
I earn a living as a comic but most people don’t know I come from
a medical family. My sister is a doctor. I am a hypochondriac. I like
to diagnose my symptoms ahead of time. I Google my symptoms on because doctors are busy these days and I don’t
want them to think I am needy. 
Like most people, I don’t know what to say when people get sick. So
I took the Hospice course a few years ago and this may sound like a
strange thing to say but I loved it. We talked about all those things
you don’t talk get to bring up in normal conversation.
By the end, I knew I wouldn’t ever volunteer to go into a hospital
because of that candy-striper incident when I was a girl and the old
guy who wanted me to sponge bath him!

What I did decide to do was teach the communication component

of the course for a couple of years. Based on that experience, I GARAGE
recently wrote, acted in and produced a video called “How to Talk
to Sick People”. DOOR COMPANY
Because of budget restraints, I had to play both the sick person and
the well one. Yes, it’s me talking to myself. As you can see by the
photo, I did look worse than in my yearbook photo.
This small teaching video took 80 hours to prep, 10 hours to shoot,
and cost $11,400. PELA gave me a third and I raised $5,300 at a
fundraiser recently. So, financially I am almost there. (Are you
writing a cheque as you read?)
Once it is edited, I will make it available on the Web to any caregiver
– professional or personal. 
I still am not great with the medical end of things but I’ve learned
most people just want you to listen to them. I learned two questions
to ask yourself:  Did they ask for advice? Did they ask YOU? Residential and Commercial Doors
24 Hour Service
(Oh yeah and don’t say “just go to the light …”.)
