Open Fit Hearing Aids
Currently, there is a trend in the hearing aid industry toward smaller and more discreet hearing aids, including the recent development of open fit hearing aids (also known as open ear hearing aids). Open fit hearing aids have one major limitation, however; they are not appropriate for many people with a more severe hearing loss and are best used by those with high frequency hearing loss and normal low frequency hearing. This means that those with severe hearing loss inquiring about this new technology may have either been steered toward more traditional hearing aids (which also have their benefits) or have been improperly fitted with open fit hearing aids. However, a recent modification to open fit hearing aids, known as receiver in the canal (RIC) hearing aids, can make these nearly invisible hearing aids available to people with more severe hearing loss. Open fit hearing aids provide greater comfort in a discreet size. They’re easy to manipulate and maintain and come in a range of styles and features.

"REMEMBER" Do you remember a few weeks ago when I discussed the terror of a 95.2 pound maniac. Recently the Corporate Jet was visiting down the lane with family and friends, when he suddenly got the urge to tear about. Why a lawn rake being used to gather lawn clippings drew his attention may never be known, but the resulting collision had a predictable outcome ... Jet (unscathed) ... rake (badly broken handle). Fortunately no humans were damaged (at least physically). Many thanks to the reader in Salisbury, who shared her own storey of a black lab maniac. If I ever find the time, we may even get it into print so that everyone can enjoy the pain and joy of doggy ownership. Some of you geezers are probably old enough (if the mind is still working) to remember the song "16 Tons" ...(I'm way too young!!!) "You load sixteen tons, what do you get Another day older and deeper in debt" A recent study carried out by Mikie reveals that 32 Tons (of gravel) accomplishes pretty much the same result ... older and poorer. You see in order to keep up with the Jones's of Burnside Lane, we needed a fancier quality of gravel than the dirt we have been using on our part of the lane. Two truck loads of "good" gravel, several hundred dollars and 24 hours later we're singing the same song with only minor changes to the lyrics. One day after arrival, about 24 Tons of the stuff is spread and we are well along the path of fitting in with the "Jones's". While you are remembering things ... how about computers!! Can you remember when A computer was something on TV from a science fiction show A window was something you hated to clean ... and RAM was the cousin of a goat... Memory was something that you lost with age A CD was a bank account And if you unzipped anything in public you'd be in jail for a while (more to come later)!!! 800

News from the Riverbank: Water levels on the Hammond have returned to great levels, running around the two meter mark. The lift of fresh water also brought in another run of gaspereau, enticing many anglers to cast flies to these fish. We’ve also had visits from Luna Moths, a beautiful local insect, and one of the largest moths seen in the local area. We haven’t seen many stripers lately, but we do know that they are active in the system. Also, we’re very pleased to have had another visit from the recently-formed Saint John High School fishing club, with several members coming out for fly-tying and casting lessons, and actual fishing. They’ll be back again in two weeks time. And, welcome to our newest (and probably most remote) member: Jim Winch and his lovely wife dropped in recently to tour the building. Jim, a retired forest ecology professor from Pennsylvania also spoke to the SJHS class, and encouraged them to stay involved in the sport of fly fishing. Welcome, Jim!

CANADA DAY Canada Day is July 1st of every year. It's the day that most Canadians enjoy relaxation while spending time with family & friends. It typically involves a BBQ (cook-out). Many communities host Canada Day events and set off fireworks. The Americans separated from British rule in 1768, and celebrate Independence Day on July 4th. Canada waited 100 years later, until 1868, to create the "Dominion of Canada". Independence Day celebrates the rejection of British rule and the United States becoming an autonomous country. The basis of Canada's celebration is founded on the formation of a new country and the union of provinces. The holiday became a statute in 1879 but was initially called Dominion Day. There are not any records of early celebrations of Canada (Dominion) Day, except for two years. In 1917, it was used to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Confederation. It was also a backdrop to the dedication of the Parliament Buildings Centre Block which was being constructed. It was dedicated to the Fathers of Confederation and to Canadians fighting in the First World War. In 1927 the celebration coincided with the Diamond Jubilee of Confederation. The Governor General laid the cornerstone of the Confederation Building on Wellington Street and the Carillon in the Peace Tower was inaugurated. Only since the late 1950's has Canada had regular observance ceremonies of Canada Day. In 1968, Canada added multi-cultural and professional concerts on Parliament Hill. The festivities were televised and ran under the name Festival Canada until 1979. In 1980, the government extended celebrations beyond the Ottawa region by sponsoring the development of festivities on a local level. In 1981, 15 major cities offered fireworks to commemorate the day. It wasn't until 1982 that Dominion Day was officially changed to Canada Day.

THE CANADIAN FLAG Canada's longest battle was waged in parliament over the introduction of a uniquely Canadian symbol ... the flag. That is not to assume that a distinctly Canadian flag wasn't considered before the maple leaf version was adopted ... the current design was actually discussed as early as 1919. Up until, 1945, the only "official" flag that Canada flew was the Union Jack. The Red Ensign was flown for Canada, at sea and at posts throughout the world, and in 1945 (with the addition of Royal Arms) it was established as the "temporary" Canadian flag, until a replacement was found. They did not realize it would be another 20 years before that would happen. When William Lyon Mackenzie King suggested that Canada consider researching and adopting its own flag, he fell under much criticism. In short, many people felt they had fought in WWI under a waving Union Jack and that it would be disrespectful to replace it. The flag issue was dropped until WWII when King insisted Canadian Forces be acknowledged for their part in the war rather than as a part of Britain's effort. The Canadian Army, not having a distinctive flag for themselves started to use the Red Ensign with the shield of the Coat of Arms of Canada in January 1944. The Royal Canadian Air Force followed soon after. King decided to try to bring the issue of a distinctly Canadian flag to the forefront of debate in parliament. The response was the same as the first time. King was burned and his popularity in office was damaged. Again the issue went unresolved. Lester B. Pearson was the next Prime Minister to start flag waving, and proposed his own design in 1964. Diefenbaker heartily opposed him. Subsequently, a committee was established to determine the best design. It was September 1964 and they were given 6 weeks to conclude. By a process of elimination the current Canadian flag came out on top. It was officially inaugurated on February 15, 1965. Pearson faced the same intensity of battle and the same criticisms as King had faced years previously. The battle was just as ferocious and political, but at the end Canada had a new National Flag. Out of three choices, the maple leaf design by George F. G. Stanley and John Matheson based on the flag of the Royal Military College of Canada was selected. The flag made its first appearance on February 15, 1965; the date is now celebrated annually as National Flag of Canada Day. Since December 18, 1964, the Union Jack is flown in Canada as a symbol of membership in the Commonwealth and allegiance to the Crown. In August 1943 Roosevelt (USA), Churchill (Britain) and King met in Quebec City for a conference. On the Citadel, the Red Ensign flew below the Union Jack while the US flag flew at an equal height to the Union Jack. From that day, on King's recommendation, the Canadian flag has flown as an equal counterpart to Britain and other nations. Colours of the Canadian Flag were chosen to represent the following: Red - to signify the English, loftiness, royalty, assurance & military virtues; White - to signify the French, probity & loyalty.

Summer is coming and so is the opportunity to take advantage of our Summer Employment Experience program! There are high school students with an intellectual disability in our community who would benefit from an experience of working for your company. This is a twoweek unpaid work term that will be supervised by a jobcoach. Your company could pay an honorarium to the student if that seemed suitable for this added value. This just may be the opportunity to see if there is a potential new hire... without the risk!

Sounds worthwhile, yes?

1ST ANNUAL WALK FOR CATS Ca-r-ma.org Saint John is pleased to announce it’s 1st Annual Walk for Cats which will be held Saturday, June 26th at the Irving Nature Park. The need for help is now more than ever! Volunteers to either gather pledges or staff the event are necessary. Proud supporters of this event will gain sponsorship for walking, jogging, or biking (any desired amount) around the Irving Nature Park. Registration, donation, and information tables will be placed around the park with an adoption tent and BBQ at Sheldon Point. A challenge is being sent out to gather the most monetary pledges, with prizes going to top individuals and/or groups. If a monetary donation isn’t possible, we’re always happy to accept cat food donations. We are anticipating this event to be a huge success and would love to see as many “cat rescuers at heart” come out and get involved with raising much needed awareness and funding. If Mother Nature decides to pay an unannounced visit, we’ll move our tables and adoption tent to the Carleton Community Center, Saint John - West. For more info on how to obtain your pledge sheets and get involved, please contact us at 214-2546 or carma-angela@hotmail.com.

AED FUNDRAISER A SUCCESS We wish to thank the many donors and contributors to our silent Auction which was held on may 29th/30th at the Rothesay Arena in conjunction with the Valley Cruisers Car Show. The purpose of the auction was to raise funds for the purchase of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to be placed at Rothesay High School and available to residents of the Kennebecasis Valley. Proceeds from the auction significantly exceeded our expectations at $3,000.00+ which combined with our other staff fund raising efforts brought our total to $4,000.00. This amount is matched by Scotiabank, for a grand total of $8,000.00 which means we'll be able to purchase two AED's - one for Rothesay High School, and another to be placed in the KV area at a location to be determined. This would not have been possible without the tremendous support of our various donors and the individuals who bid on the items. We also wish to thank the Valley Cruisers Car Club for lending their support to this fund raising initiative! 217

KVHS Student Recognized for Caring and Leadership
by Jennifer Belyea Fiander
Seventeen year old Holly Daggett didn’t aspire to be a community hero, nor does she think of herself as such. But, by following her heart, her accomplishments have recently earned her a “Teens Who Care” award, one that she greatly appreciates. In April, the Resource Centre for Youth recognized eleven local teens for their commitment to community and for being positive role models. Holly, a grade 12 student at KVHS, was nominated by her guidance counsellor, Mr. Howe. It was her school involvement and commitment to helping others that won her the distinction. As member of the school’s leadership team, Holly is greatly involved in her school. She and fellow student Rebecca Dewer have been chosen to help put together a KVHS Art Hall of Fame, a vision created by teacher Mrs. DoyleYerxa. The Art Hall of Fame will feature graduates of the school who are working in the arts. It will consist of head shots and bios and will be an ongoing project. Because of her musical background, Holly was a natural choice to work on the project. She’s been involved in school musicals for years, sings in a youth band and is in the school choir. She feels the Arts Hall of Fame will help reinforce the idea not only to her, but also to others, that you can make a living in the arts. “The arts are a big part of my life. I always wanted someone to tell me that I could go somewhere with it,” she says. Earlier this year, Holly went on a life-changing trip to Haiti. Dean Stephenson, the director of Caton’s Island camp, had a dream to return to Haiti and run a day camp. At the start of the year he did just that, taking 16 teenagers with him to help run the camp; Holly was one of them. For nearly two weeks, the group ran a day camp in an orphanage that is home to 58 children. They brought toys, new shoes for the children and medical supplies. The teens learned several songs in the children’s native tongue of Creole, and taught the children songs, as well as games such as musical chairs and balloon bust. One of Holly’s favourite memories of the trip was taking the children to the beach; even though it was nearby, it was the first time many had been there. The experience of being at the orphanage was one that Holly will never forget. “You take everything for granted here. Then, when going to somewhere like Haiti, you see some of the poorest people in the world. They all seem so happy, even though they have nothing. It makes you think twice about a lot of things.” The group was fortunate to return from their trip only four days before the devastating earthquake struck Haiti. Holly organized a coffee house at KVHS, which made over $1,000 for Haiti relief. Her plans to help others will not end in high school. She has plans to attend Crandall University and obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree, and later a Bachelor of Education. She is then hoping to teach in other countries. Holly feels that teens today are becoming more socially aware and are willing to help where they can. She attributes much of her peers’ generosity to the school atmosphere that KVHS has been successful in building. Programs in school such as TADD (Teens Against Drunk Driving), Making Waves (creating awareness about abusive relationships), the recycling team, and classes such as World Issues create awareness and encourage youth to be proactive in bettering their communities and the world. With her parents’ support and encouragement, Holly will return to Haiti around the same time this year. Helping others is clearly a part of who she is. “Since I was little, I always wanted to travel and help people. It’s always been in my heart.” We are looking for stories about people making a difference in the Kennebasis Valley – people who donate money and work hard to keep churches and local organizations operating, people who provide time and leadership to programs that serve youth, people who organize and contribute to fundraising activities that support worthy causes and those in need in our community. If you know a story about a community “Super Hero” we want to hear from you. Call 832-5613 or email info@ossekeag.ca.

KV CRUSADERS COLUMN By Maria Debly The Huestis Insurance Group Classes and exams are over, and while you're waiting to get your marks and for summer Big enough to serve you... Small enough to care vacation to officially begin, here is some final year-end information. During the last few weeks, there were several assemblies and ceremonies: the Athletics Awards; the Academic Awards; Call us today! an assembly for the Reach for the Top Team, who won the national championships this year; and the Farewell Assembly HUESTIS & HARBOUR CITY INSURANCE for the grade 12 students. SAINT JOHN, NB 635-1515 Anyone who attended Quispamsis Elementary School in the 1999-2000 school year can go to the Q.E.S. on June 22nd, at ADVANTAGE INSURANCE 11:00am. The time capsules that the elementary school SAINT JOHN, NB students and teachers buried a decade ago are going to be dug 672-4444 up. Everyone will be able to see what was in them, and former students can even find the time capsule that they buried. CS BRANCH INSURANCE Several of the spring shows were completely sold out, so if ROTHESAY, NB you didn't get to see it last time, KV Players will be putting on 847-7505 the musical Beauty and the Beast. If you go to the musical, RIVER VALLEY INSURANCE you'll see that road leading off the Old Hampton Road and GRAND BAY - WESTFIELD, NB down to the school has been renamed "Robert Munro Drive". 738-3141 It is named after Mr. Munro, who is retiring this year after being at KV for 23 years. It might be a coincidence, but the road sign is blue and the lettering is white: KV's school colors! THE HUESTIS INSURANCE GROUP Another staff member who is retiring this year is Mrs. Doylewww.huestis.ca Yerxa. To find out about the Suzanne Doyle-Yerxa Awards Fund, visit www.suzannedoyleyerxa.com. Report cards come out on June 25th. That is also the day for the Grade 12 Graduation ceremony, and there is Safe Grad afterwards. One of the parents organizing the Safe Grad fundraisers said that the barbecue and the Spring Fling fundraisers "were both hugely successful events," and that "Thanks to great community support, we are well on our way to another fantastic Safe Grad at KVHS!" Just one more thing: I'm sure that most KV students would agree with me when I say thank you to all of the volunteers, parents, and staff who make it possible for us to have all of the clubs, teams, committees and activities during the school year. Good luck to the grade 12 students who are graduating, and have a great summer. 211 Reminder: STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL IN BLOOMFIELD There will be a Strawberry Festival held at the Bloomfield Hall on Thursday, July 8th from 4:30-6:30pm.

Valley Viewer - June 22, 2010

By Debbie Hickey GET OUTDOORS! Many of my most vivid memories of childhood took place outdoors. This is hardly surprising since (other than times in school), 75% of our waking hours were spent outdoors. We did go in for meals and bathroom breaks, but then it was right back outdoors. We fished and splashed in the brook, made trenches for the water to run off the driveway when it rained, picked strawberries and raspberries, hiked the woods, found lots of ways to play in the snow, rode bikes, wed the garden, picked flowers . . . it was a great time to be a kid. Mike and I did our best to duplicate that for our kids when they were young. They too spent many hours outdoors, doing much the same things we had as kids. (In fact one of my favourite memories is of the two of them playing in the rain in their bathing suits during an unseasonably warm late fall downpour.) But many of their generation did not. Television and computers had taken over the after school hours. I expect our children sometimes felt hard done by because of the time restrictions we imposed on TV and computer time. That certainly never caused me a moment of guilt! I read recently that U.S. kids are not getting sufficient Vitamin D. You remember Vitamin D. the sunshine vitamin. The one you soak up by playing outdoors. A recent study from the Kaiser Foundation found that kids between the ages of 7 and 18 spend more than seven and a half hours a day using some form of media, including the computer. If you add in seven hours a day for school, when are they getting outdoors? What a shame. Some of my best moments now as a grandparent are spent outdoors with our four year old granddaughter, exploring the natural world. She loves to walk out the wood road to the brook, help with the gardening, learn about growing things, understand how the world of nature works, ride on the tractor with "Grumpy". Do yourself and a child favour and get outdoors together. "Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air…" ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson. 801
