MARCO POLO TO CROSS HARBOUR
We are bringing the Marco Polo across the Saint John harbour
in September of this year. She is 90 feet long and 65 feet high.
She is going inside Harbour Station to be part of the Marco
Polo Musical which is to be performed on Saturday, October
23rd; after 24 years the people are going to get to see her.
This will be a great day as we celebrate the fastest ship in the
world, the first ship in history to circumnavigate the world in
less than six months. The Marco Polo is the best example of
the Golden Age of Sail (1850s to 1890s) in our country . Saint
John was the center of this and all people will have their
spirits raised the day she comes across the harbour. 615

ILLEGAL DUMP HOTLINE
Illegal dumps have no boundaries. In New Brunswick they can
be found along public roads, near streams, on private property,
along railroad lines, and other out-of-the-way places.
Illegal dumping is misplaced solid waste and raises concerns
over safety, property values and quality of life. It is also referred
to as ‘open dumping’, ‘fly dumping’, ‘midnight dumping’, and
‘wildcat dumping’, because materials are often dumped in
open areas, from vehicles and, at times - late at night.
An examination of the literature suggests economics and low

NO TAX
risk are factors affecting decisions to illegally dump. More
specifically, research indicates those who illegally dump do so
because they: Lack a sense of ownership; Believe someone else
will clean up what they have disposed of; Lack public
awareness about the health and environmental risks.

If you are aware of an illegal dump site, please contact the
“Illegal Dump Hotline”, or use another avenue, should you
prefer, being sure to provide sufficient information as to

Musings
By Debbie Hickey

OUCH!
Is it just me or are there more wasp nests around this summer?
Now I am normally a live and let live kinda gal. If you don't
bother me I won't bother you and we can all co-exist in the
same space quite nicely. Wasps do not seem to prescribe to this
philosophy, however. In fact, some can be downright cranky!
So I eyed with some trepidation the wasp nest on the eave of
the garage, but I was willing to give them the benefit of the
doubt. I then discovered another nest developing on the eave
of the house, fairly close to the main door. Hmmm . . . . but a
peaceful detente seemed to be in place so I was willing to leave
them be. Was.
I was working in the back of the house transplanting a vine to
the base of the deck post (nowhere near the two wasp nests in
“Always working for the front) when I was stung. At which point I discovered yet a
third nest (the largest by far) beneath the deck. Okay, detente
was over! That wasp was dispatched in short order and I
the people!” moaned and griped for a mite and vowed revenge. And rather
than listen to my continued mutterings Michael bought some
wasp killer and the nests are no more. Well at least two of
them. The one on the front eave is still in place, but hopefully
dead.
The last time I can recall being stung was when the kids were
young and we were blueberry picking on the hill behind the
house in Kingston. Our youngest was still in diapers, which was
fortunate for her since when she stood up we discovered she
had been parked directly on top of the wasp nest in the ground.
They were somewhat unhappy with their home having been
squashed by her diapered behind and made that displeasure
known as soon as she stood up. A mad dash to the house was in
order, with Michael and daughter number one well out in front
while I was left to grab the offending daughter number two and
carry her whilst ensuring the wasp that had crawled up my

pant leg was kept in a firm grip so as to not continue stinging
all the way down the hill and into the house. Ouch!
