Hearing Aids: Why Are You Waiting?
Many people with hearing loss think that hearing
aids will make them look older or aect others
perception of them. They put o getting hearing
aids because they think that they can “get by” just
ne; however, “getting by’ is stressful and hard work.
It often leads to isolation and social withdrawal. Be
honest with yourself. Wearing hearing aids is much
less noticeable than constantly asking people to
repeat themselves or responding to a question with
an unrelated answer.
The truth is that a well-tted hearing aid can greatly
enhance your ability to interact with others. Hearing
aids can minimize many problems that go along
with hearing loss, such as diculty understanding
conversations, hearing environmental noise as well
as location and direction of sound. And they can
help ght feelings of social isolation.
If your hearing loss aects your ability to
communicate with others or makes you feel
self-conscious, it may be time to consider hearing
aids. Though it may be awkward at rst, over time
you'll adjust to the device and enjoy your enhanced
ability to hear and communicate in a variety of
situations. By wearing your hearing aids regularly,
you will begin to notice signicant improvements in
your quality of life.
Hearing Loss is much more noticeable than Hearing
Aids. The rst step is to have your hearing tested.

Audiologist.

“DISASTER”
Te missus and I have been very conscious about the
environment for quite a few years now. We recycle even tiny
bits of plastic, cardboard and paper. We hate wasting electricity,
food and most of our clothing comes from second hand shops.
So it is very bothersome to fnd that we may be harbouring an
environmental disaster. Having just celebrated Tanksgiving
and having received a few mornings of frost, I am reminded that
this is the time of year that both humans and animals try and
fatten up for the winter. So far my progress is going fne, but I
am concerned about how the animals are making out. It appears
that a big black (bear???) is cleaning out every apple tree within
miles. Te deer are starting to line up and march in protest to
the devastation of their food supply.
Working on my woods road a few days ago, I had to move the
tractor back a little further and as I am climbing back up on
the backhoe I look across into the woods and there are two doe
staring at me. It was clear from the look that they were giving
me that they were holding me responsible for the apple shortage.
Tey described the monster that was devastating their food
supply and it sounded like a bear to me, but when they told me
that his name was Te Jet, I almost fell of my seat. Instantly, the
possibility of mistaking Te Jet for a bear was obvious.
But, what was I going to do?? Te vision of starving Bambi’s
just didn’t seem right. If I were to truck in loads of apples for the
deer, Te Bear would probably get at least half of them and the
cost would be two years of salary!!!
Tere has to be a solution to this problem!! I can’t starve Te
Bear and I can’t starve the poor deer!!! So the deal I’ve come
up with is that I am giving permission to all of the deer to
wander throughout all of Nauwigewauk, and eat their fll from
every garden they can fnd. Unprotected
cedar hedges, shrubs, fowers, vegetables,
whatever they can fnd is theirs. Oh Wait!!
I think that they have been doing that
anyway!!
Many thanks to all the local gardeners
who are sacrifcing a share of your labour
to help sustain the deer population. Te
Jet will be able to munch and crunch for
at least a few more weeks without having a
guilty conscience. 800

Hoping everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween.
Also in regards to safety and our children, we have
received a number of complaints so far this school
season of motorists passing school buses while their
lights are flashing. While this is an obvious safety
concern it is also an offence and contrary to Section
188(1) of the New Brunswick Motor Vehicle Act and
carries a substantial fine.
Finally, and continuing with the pedestrian safety
theme, Kennebecasis River Road is one used by a
high number of Hamptonians for walking and
running. The posted speed limit along this road is 50
Km/h. While it is important to respect the posted
speed limit on all of our roads, please drive with
extra caution along this busy road way.
Thank you,

“For my 12
th
birthday I
want… I want… I want
a young girl like me to
be able to go to school
in Swaziland.” Tat’s not
the typical wish list for
an 11-year old girl in
Hampton but it was for
Emma Pelham. For her 12
th
birthday this September,
instead of asking for
presents, Emma asked
for money that could be
used to sponsor a Starfsh
student in Piggs Peak. And
with the fulfllment of her
unselfsh request, Emma
has donated the $300
necessary to pay annual
school admission fees for
Nokwanda Masimula, a
14-year old girl who will be
going into Form 1 (Grade 8) next year.
Nokwanda wants to be an accountant. Tis is a dream that
could not be fulflled without an education. More specifcally, it
is a dream that could not be fulflled without Emma’s generous
donation. Emma has made a small diference in our battle
against the impact of HIV/AIDS in Swaziland. But she has
made an enormous change in the life of Nokwanda. Tank you,
Emma, for joining us in our mission to provide help, hope, and
opportunity to our neighbours in Piggs Peak… one person at a
time.
In Piggs Peak high school admission fees vary according to
the school year but, on average, it works out to about $300
per year. Trough our Starfsh Program a sponsor like Emma
commits to making this payment and establishes a relationship
with a specifc student we will be supporting. Tis has been a
very important program to date and has been instrumental
in allowing us to continue to grow our student sponsorship.
Furthermore, committing to sponsoring someone now will
allow us to determine how many students we will be able to
support in the school year starting January 2012.
Te Starfsh Program is now two years old and we are continuing
to fne tune it to meet the objectives of the Partnership. Afer
discussions with some sponsors, we have decided to make a
change for next year’s program by implementing a two-tier
sponsorship. We are doing this because, although $300 covers
school admission fees for one year, additional costs for exam
fees and uniforms amount to an additional $150 per year. Te
Partnership now pays these costs out of general funds. In the
future a sponsor will have the option to pay $450 per year and
cover all education costs. We will be explaining this more fully
in the weeks ahead.
Transparency is very important to the Hampton-Piggs Peak
Partnership so I would be happy to share the specifc details
of all school fees with anyone who requests them. I am always
eager to answer any other questions you may have.
Please help by sponsoring a student in Piggs Peak by visiting
our website www.hamptonpiggspeak.ca or contacting me at 832-
0003 or our Starfsh Coordinator, Carl MacKenzie, at 832-2704.
If Emma can do so, so can you. Wouldn’t it make a fantastic
birthday gif? 110

FROsT DODGeRs FOR THAnKsGivinG.
What a wonderful season we have had, a vase of Roses and
Anemones with Matricaria (Fever Few) in full bloom graced the
thanksgiving table and by the next morning the delicate aroma
of roses flled the room. How blessed we are to be living in New
Brunswick!
Te Anemone family is an extensive one with perennial
varieties that range in size from eight inches to three feet,
coming in shades from white through scarlet to deepest purple.
It is possible to still fnd a few of these at cut rate prices in the
major garden centers and with care and constant watering they
will last for many years. With our increasingly warming climate
I am hopeful that the tuberous ones that we fnd alongside the
Spring Bulbs on sale now, will actually behave like the perennials
they truly are and last for many years. Tese chaps look like
withered, fattened, very miniature cow pats and it’s hard to tell
which way up to plant them as there is usually no evidence of
root ends, however they are well worth a try since the blossoms
are magnifcent with a complete range of color and last in the
garden or as cut fowers for an extended time.
Alongside these beauties in the Spring bulb collection is another
favorite family, the Fritillaries, the F. Meliagris, sometimes
known as the snakes head or checkered lily can be naturalized
in a grassy area or if Deer are
an issue, within the security
of a fenced area. Tey are
dainty, seemingly fragile and
come in shades of burgundy
and white; one of my fondest
childhood memories is of
seeing felds of these growing
wild and nodding in the
breeze, well worth a try at.
Te majestic Imperial Crown
which comes in either yellow
or orange is rather pricey, but
well worth a go; because of
its rather smelly bulb has the
advantage of repelling rodents
that are frequently responsible
for devouring many types of our Spring Bulbs.
Afer many attempts at growing the English Bluebell, I have
fnally achieved several years of wonderful blossoms and am
feeling confdent that all is well there; its critical to get the name
right since there are so many diferent hyacinthoides, one needs
the non-scripta type. Tis is one of the many occasions when
the Latin name is important as I found to my cost, having raised
pink and white jobs by mistake on my frst attempts!
You will fnd many other delightful fowering bulbs that can be
planted now, in good fertile soil at a depth three times the height
of the bulb. Water well and with any luck at all a beautiful home
grown bouquet may grace your Easter banquet.
My father’s favorite quote was, “Never put of till tomorrow
what you can do today”. Te very best advice for the potential
bulb grower, happy planting. 805

WHAT ARe yOu THAnKFul FOR?
I know Tanksgiving Day has already come and gone . . . so I’m
a little slow. But as I sat at my table surrounded by family as we
enjoyed our Tanksgiving meal I could not help but think how
lucky I am. Both of our children live nearby and visit regularly.
We see our grand granddaughter most days, and have a new one
expected next month. One daughter is studying for a new career
while the other is working on house renovations in preparation
for said new grandchild. A son-in-law who went back to school
has now graduated and is starting a new career. Both of our
mothers still live independently and were able to join us for
the meal. Te weather that weekend was amazing, I still have
fowers in bloom and walking in the woods is a joy with the
beautiful colours all around.
Over the past weeks (months, in fact!) I have been endeavouring
to obtain from the government information on what my pension
will be from my 25 years of service that preceded Ossekeag
Publishing. Tis has proven to be an extremely taxing pursuit. I
am very thankful I no longer work in such an organization!
Michael commented recently on an interview he heard on CBC
with Kevin O’Leary of Dragon’s Den fame, who said that of all
his business endeavours those in which he had a partner were
the most successful. A partner can shore up the areas in which
you are weak and give a diferent perspective on making tough
decisions. So this is my opportunity to acknowledge both my life
partner and my business partner. When I decided I wanted to
own a publishing company, Michael was right there saying what
do you need from me. He has given his time and his knowledge
(he ofen jokes he is the lowest paid MBA in New Brunswick)
and his energy and I know Ossekeag would not have enjoyed
the level of success it has achieved without him. Having him at
the table with me (whether the dinner table enjoying ham or the
boardroom table arguing strategy) is one of the great joys in my
life. I am thankful he has been shoring up my many weak spots
all these years!
“Be thankful for problems. If they were less difcult, someone
with less ability might have your job.” ~ James A. Lovell. 801
