It is Environment Week in Canada as I write this, so you will be getting it after the fact, but that is OK because with any luck at all the environment will still be around. If there is one issue that concerns me on the political front is how governments typically think short term and often not further than the next election. I ask you ... when was the last time that you ever heard a politician of any political stripe talk about 100 years down the road let alone 1000 years ahead. So I wonder sometimes whether they believe the country will even be around that long. And you know, without some long range thinking ... they might be right!! Politicians, however, are simply reflecting the thinking of the majority of Canadians. In general we prefer jobs now, lower taxes now and to heck with everything else. Politicians wont change until Canadians change!! As a country Canada is still extremely dependent on the extraction of natural resources for much of our prosperity. Currently we must face two key issues. Firstly, much of what we extract ... oil, natural gas, gold, potash, zinc, nickel and so on are in absolutely limited quantities and will NEVER return. When the oil is gone ... it is gone forever or at least a few hundred thousand years. Gold and zinc will never return no matter how long the planet exists. Secondly, some of our resources, such as forestry and fishing, are renewable but only within certain limits. The Atlantic cod fishery has been largely decimated and neglect of our woodlands could certainly effect our future production. There are probably few things that Canadians love more than our children. Well, there might be one ... our grandchildren. But what about our great, great, great, great, great grandchildren?? Does anyone give a hoot?? Most of us wont be around to hold them and burp them and thank goodness no dirty diapers, but do we care what their lives will be like?? Do you think that they deserve clean air?? How about clean water?? Do you think that a few minerals and petroleum left in the ground would be ok or are we starting to spoil them?? How about healthy forests, healthy oceans and lots of healthy animals and fish to make them come alive?? Mikie youre really starting to go crazy here!!! Those of you who understand the basics of financial management know that you cannot spend every last dime and still have money for emergencies. We need to spend some and save some!! The less we spend today ... the better we are off tomorrow!! A belated Happy Environment Week!! 800

At 6:55am on Sunday, the participants of the 2011 Relay for Life commenced the final lap of the track to signify the end of the twelve-hour event. After that it was a matter of cleaning up the sight, held at the Hampton Soccer Field, and heading home for a very deserved sleep. The evening started at 5:00pm on Saturday with a dinner sponsored by Hollys in the Hampton High School Cafeteria honoring Cancer Survivors. The Survivors participated in the Survivors Victory Lap officially opening the 5th Annual Hampton Relay For Life at 7:00pm. A total of 18 teams participated and walked the first few laps in the costumes of this years theme Broadway Shows. At 10:00pm, the very solemn Luminary Ceremony began with well known, Dr. John Quinn relating his battle with cancer and a strong message on how to prevent most cancers and how to deal with the disease if you are diagnosed. The ceremony culminated with the mass lighting of the luminaries in honor or remembrance of family members, friends, classmates and colleagues. After a moment of silence, the air was filled with the very emotional strains of the Lament played by piper Mike Morrison. Half way through the walk of silence, the tempo of the music changed to bring the level back to the mood of celebration and the mindset to Fight Back against this disease. Local talented artists filled the evening with very lively entertainment of music and song. Many fun filled games and activities were played through the night that allowed the participants to test their skills in physical and mental challenges. Through the night, hot soup and other snacks were available to the participants, to ward off the coolness of the air and we did not have to deal with rain this year! As of 7:00am, Sunday morning, more than $51,000.00 dollars had been raised and the final total will not be known for a few days. This is an incredible amount and special thanks go to all who donated and supported the event. I would personally like to thank the Hampton Relay For Life committee who made the event culminate in a fun filled yet fitting tribute to those who have been affected in any way by cancer. On behalf of the committee, I would also like to thank the corporate sponsors, who year after year give generously either financially or otherwise, to make this Relay For Life a huge success. My final hope is that we can continue this support in our 6th year, 2012. Thank you to everyone. Bob Gallup, Chairperson, Hampton Relay for Life 2011. 124

What a glorious time of year, blossoms everywhere to enchant the eye and fragrances that are rich enough to make one quite giddy, however many of the blossoms we see are considered undesirable. At this season of the year there are more jobs to do in the garden than most of us have time for so we need to be very selective in what gets done, to be most effective with that valuable time its best to get to the weeds that are on the verge of seeding first thus preventing hundreds of new plants from infesting lawns and gardens. However all is not negative even with the detested Dandelion, excellent wine can be made from the flower heads, the young leaves are great in salads and sandwiches and the ground up dried roots were valued during depression times as a coffee substitute. The deer are still a major problem for local gardeners and the repellent arsenal is almost as numerous as our undesirable monster Bambis. To date the most successful ones seem to be; one part of Ammonia to nine parts water with a little soap and vegetable oil mixed in sprayed on the objects of our affections, repeat spraying after multiple rainfalls and new growth is required; or hanging fresh sheeps wool in knee highs on stakes amongst the flowers; if you use the darker beige ones they rather resemble ladies slipper and from a distance give the impression that a master gardener is in residence. A most effective way of making an overgrown garden look as if it should be a center fold in Canadian Gardening, is to take an edging tool and whistle it around the flower bed taking just enough time to weed a three foot swathe behind the edge. The eye is caught by the clean crisp edge and the fact that there are weeds further back in the area is scarcely noticed, especially if the larger blooming weeds have been disposed of. Having taken a short cut to a good looking plot its wise to sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor (just think, if you had harvested those dandelion flowers and made wine last year, you could relax in style!!). 805

The National Youth Orchestra of Canada is the premiere training venue for young musicians seeking to develop professional playing skills and contacts. Founded in 1960 by the noted conductor Walter Susskind, the NYOCs primary focus is to provide world-class training to Canadas best young orchestral musicians. Alex Cho, grade 12 SJ High School, concertmaster of FLO (local chamber orchestra), has been accepted into this years orchestra. Alex, who is just 17, and a Grade 12 student in the IB programme at Saint John High School, is justifiably excited about his upcoming summer with the orchestra. Unfortunately the requirement that he begin the training session on June 18th means that Alex will have to pass on his graduation exercises, including prom, at Saint John High. While this was initially quite disappointing to him, he feels that the opportunity to play with a group of the caliber of the NYOC is not to be missed. FLO will be holding a concert on Saturday, June 25th at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Rothesay, where they will be performing the Mendelssohn Concerto for Violin, Piano and Strings with guests Nancy Dahn and Timothy Steeves, otherwise known as Duo Concertante, from Memorial University. There will be no admission cost for this concert, but a free will offering will be appreciated. Unfortunately Alex will miss this concert and following the summer with NYOC, Alex will be heading off to St. Johns himself to enroll at MUN and to study with Nancy. 802

The Hampton John Peters Humphrey Foundation is gearing up for its biennial Bloomin Artists event. Bloomin Artists, co-sponsored by Hampton Communities in Bloom, has proven to be one of the most fun and exciting events that Hampton has to offer in the summer months; it attracts folks from near and far. This years event will be held in The Lighthouse Park River Centre on Saturday, July 23rd & Sunday, July 24th featuring about 40 artists who will be painting some of Hamptons most beautiful gardens and picturesque sites. The paintings created over the course of the weekend will be sold during four separate silent auctions, and excitement among the artists, along with that of the many volunteeers, onlookers and buyers, is always tangible. A highlight of the event is the opportunity for the public to visit the lovely gardens and watch the artists at work. Not to be forgotten, children will have their very own event. Members of Hamptons Alliance for Lifelong Learning will have tables set up for the children to make their own creations, which they can take home. Some of the wooden fish that they painted in 2009, and decorated with feathers, sticks, sequins, pebbles, you name it, were truly works of art and a lovely way to introduce the children to an artistic group event. There has always been a popular surprise event at Bloomin Artists. Prior to the event, each artist is given a blank wooden figure(s), and asked to create a work of art around a theme (this years theme is Women in Bloom). An amazing variety of figures, ranging from the hilarious to the serious, will also be auctioned off. Please come, and please stay tuned for more information as the event approaches. 830

by Owen Preeper The sun has finally found its way through the clouds to brighten up our end-of-year activities here at Hampton Middle School. With only 10 more days of school left, summer break is just around the corner. On June 2nd the Hampton community was invited to see a performance of The Pirates of Beamers Creek, an original play performed by the HMS drama club. Congratulations go out to the cast, crew and staff who made it all happen! Students in Grade 6 enjoyed a day at home on June 3rd to make room for next years Grade 6 students, who were visiting from Hampton Elementary and Hammond River Valley Elementary Schools. The Grade 8 students headed off to Hampton High for the day to get oriented to their future school. On June 9th, all were invited to a celebration in honour of Betty Harrison, our beloved art teacher. For the past 24 years, Ms. Harrison has led a phenomenal art program for the students at HMS. We wish her well in her retirement. Students in Grade 7 and 8 worked diligently on math this past month, preparing for district and provincial math assessments. Tomorrow a full busload of excited Grade 8 students will embark on their much-anticipated trip to Quebec. They have a full itinerary, including a tour of the Citadelle de Quebec, a trip to Montmorency Falls and a bike tour around Old Quebec. They will get to experience Quebec culture at its finest. The Grade 8 semi-formal is being held on June 22nd. Come out and see all the students dressed up for their last middle school dance. All students will be bringing home their final report cards on June 24th, the last half-day of school. As this is the last article I will write before heading off to high school, I would like to wish all the students and staff of Hampton Middle School a safe and happy summer. Owen Preeper is a Grade 8 student at Hampton Middle School.

Over the past few weeks you have read stories about, and letters from, some of the Starfish students that are being supported by the Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership. (Visit our website www.hamptonpiggspeak. ca and click on the starfish logo to read the Starfish story.) The sincere expressions of gratitude we receive are heartwarming. They also provide confirmation for us that paying school fees for those who would otherwise be unable to do so is one of the most effective ways of breaking the cycle of poverty, disease, and despair that permeates Piggs Peak. We are currently paying school and exam fees for almost 80 students at Fundukuwela and Piggs Peak Central high schools. In Swaziland, there are five forms or years of high school the equivalent of grade 812 in Canada. Total costs vary from year to year based on the number of students we have in the different grades. For instance, Form five, the final year, is significantly more expensive than other forms; the fees for standardized exams alone are approximately $300 per student! Since payments are required in local currency, the dollar/emalangeni exchange rate can also impact our costs. The current all-in cost of supporting students for 2011 is almost $40,000. Those of you who are Starfish sponsors are paying a significant portion of the total costs. You are an integral part of our Partnership without whom we would be unable to do what we are doing. But, for the reasons above, we need additional funds to supplement these donations. As you can imagine, from time to time payments come due and our Partnership runs into cash flow challenges something with which many


of us can identify. We ran into such a situation in April; St. Pauls Presbyterian Church responded to this predicament by designating May as Piggs Peak Month and setting a goal of raising $5,000 for the month. The congregation went into allout fundraising mode by undertaking an Easter Breakfast; Poor Boys Dinner; Movie Night; Spring Tea/Bake Sale, Auction; Car Wash; and Special Offerings. Through the hard work of many too many to mention in this space St. Pauls Presbyterian Church successfully raised $5,044 in May for the HamptonPiggs Peak Partnership! The mission of St. Pauls Presbyterian Church is to demonstrate Gods love by enhancing the lives of others within the local and global community. Thank you to everyone at St. Pauls who have so clearly demonstrated brotherly love for their neighbours in Piggs Peak through their fundraising efforts. They should take great pleasure in knowing that this love is reciprocated by those they are helping. If you would like to make a donation support any of our projects, help pay school fees or become Starfish Sponsor, please visit our website or contact me, Mark Bettle, at 832-0003 or Carl MacKenzie (Starfish Coordinator) at 832-2704. 110

Senior Goodwill Ambassadors have been appointed for a new mandate by Social Development Minister Sue Stultz, who is also minister responsible for seniors, housing and community nonprofit organizations. The Senior Goodwill Ambassador Program is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and I thank all of our ambassadors, both past and present, for their dedication to representing our province, said Stultz. The program encourages seniors to make a difference by being actively involved in their communities while also promoting all that our province has to offer. As part of their mandate, the ambassadors are invited to greet visitors to the province; address community groups; participate in and organize community activities; and encourage travellers to extend their visits to New Brunswick. They participate in conferences, ribbon-cutting ceremonies, presentations, and help guide visitors. Seniors are a vital resource for our province as they spend countless hours improving the lives of others not just in their own neighbourhoods but throughout New Brunswick, Stultz said. This program is a wonderful opportunity to provide seniors with another avenue to give back to their communities and their province through volunteering. There are 29 senior goodwill ambassadors distributed in every region of the province. Individuals or organizations interested in benefiting from the services of these ambassadors may contact the Senior and Healthy Aging Secretariat at 506-457-6811. Senior Goodwill Ambassadors locally appointed were: Jean Hartlen, Hampton and Alyson Hamilton, Quispamsis. 408

I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately wanted to paint another one. I saw you feed a stray cat and I learned that it was good to be kind to animals. I saw you make my favorite cake for me and I learned that the little things can be the special things in life. I heard you say a prayer, and I knew there is a God I could always talk to, and I learned to trust God. I saw you make a meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I learned that we all have to take care of each other. I saw you give your time and money to help people who had nothing, and I learned that those who had something should give to those who dont. I felt you kiss me good night and I felt loved and safe. I saw you take care of our house and everyone in it, and I learned we have to take care of what we were given. I saw how you handled your responsibilities, even when you didnt feel good, and I learned that I would have to be responsible when I grow up. I saw tears come from your eyes and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but its alright to cry. I saw that you cared and I wanted to be everything that I could be. I learned most of lifes lessons that I need to know to be a good and productive person when I grow up. I looked at you and wanted to say, Thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasnt looking. Each of us, parent, grandparent, relative or friend, influence the life of a child. How will you touch the life of someone today? Author Unknown CC03

Fish n Jam is back on a regular schedule, each Wednesday at 7:00pm. Many of our fly-tyers are out, fishing, so if anyone wants fly tying instruction they should call the centre and we will try to be sure we have someone available on Wednesday evenings. Also, we are planning to move the fly tying downstairs, where there is much better lighting. And, our musicians are having a great time, with about 30 people showing up every Wednesday evening. Thanks to everyone who supported us at our annual dinner on May 7th. It was another great event, and the dedicated committee members deserve recognition for the many hours (days!) of activity that goes into operating this event. We recently had a dinner wrapup meeting that saw many good ideas come forward to assist in planning for next years event! If you see any illegal fishing related activity poaching, jigging, netting, or illegally moving invasive species remember that you can report it to Crime Stoppers at 800 222-8477 (TIPS). Or call directly the local DNR and DFO offices to report. The sooner the report is made, the more likely that the culprits will be caught. And, the TIPS line is staffed 24/7. Kayak Fishing Tournament: July 16th & 17th. The new regulations for the tournament are now available in the events section of our website. This year, there will alternate launching locations, but all activities will take place at the centre. JC is already booking lots of great prizes. This year a brand-new Ocean Kayak Trident 13 kayak will be drawn (with tickets). Each registered participant will receive a ticket for that drawing, plus 1st place in the tourney will receive three extra tickets, 2nd place two tickets, and 3rd place one extra ticket. Plus, extra tickets will be available throughout the event. Furthermore, there will be big prizes for placement in the tourney itself.

I was reading an article on heroes recently that encouraged everyone to look around us for people we can reach out and help without expectation of payment or recognition. Each of us can do a little part to make our community, and by extension the world, a better place. And tho there will be the naysayers around us who will be quick to say that our little bits are drops in the bucket that wont ultimately make a difference, it is my philosophy that every bucket is filled one water droplet at a time. During work days I generally take a half hour walk at lunchtime. Usually with one or two co-workers, but if our schedules dont mesh it may be just me. The route goes down Main Street, past the high school around and over the hump-back railroad bridge and back to the office. About a half hour (thats some 4000 steps if youre counting, and I am). Before I left today, a co-worker had someone in the parking lot looking under the hood of her car as it had quit on her just as she arrived at work. Whether family member, friend or professional, that was someone going out of their way to assist . . . a drop in the bucket, but I am sure a rainbow in the eyes of the person with the car problem. As I crossed the road in front of the office (in my long dress and big sneakers, classy huh?), I noticed a dead bird just on the white line ahead of me. Or so I thought. As I got closer, the bird started to kick it legs and I realized it was injured but not dead. It managed to flip over and was moving out


into the traffic lane. I redirected it away from the road, but it was very persistent in wanting to go that way, not toward the roadside. I managed to prevail (but if I spoke the language I am sure I was told!) and it went under the guardrail and down a small bank into the grass. Hopefully it was merely stunned and is now cruising the skies, but if not, at least it was not left to bake on the side of the road, but spend its last time in the cool grass. When I returned to the office I googled it and confirmed it was a Northern Flicker, a beautiful woodpecker. My own little rescue. Neither of these events will bring world peace or end poverty or cure cancer. So what. They bring a little ray of sunshine into the world, a positive moment, and who knows perhaps that flicker will someday be the subject of an award winning photo that would not have occurred if not for my intervention today. All of us can do a little bit. If you cant feed a hundred people, then feed just one. ~ Mother Teresa. 801
