BlaNk So what do you do when your mind is just a blank and it is time to write a Ravings!!! A number of things are going on, but are still a little too fresh at this point to write about. They need to simmer and stew a bit before serving up to the public. Many years ago (nine maybe) I was able to use a brilliant article by an Australian writer on how to get your adult children to move out of the house. It was very witty and funny as heck!!! Unfortunately, getting good substitute writers to fill in for you is pretty hard to do. That Musings lady has offered to fill in from time to time, but I wouldnt want her stuff printed anywhere. So ... out of desperation I called upon my best friend to see if he might be able to help me out and being the good boy that he is he said WOOF!!! So here he is!! Hi there, my name is The Jet, and I belong to a wonderful man called Mikie. I also live with a strange little old lady, who has this even stranger liking for three fat creatures that I have to share the house with. Mikie is my best friend cause he doesnt like those fat creatures either!! Mikie is so wonderful because ... Hey thats not a full dish ... You got to put more food in there than that!!! You could stand to lose a few pounds yourself!! If he wasnt my best friend, why, I would gladly chew his leg off. Even when they are on a diet, the fat creatures get three meals a day and I only ever get two!! What about that, big shot friend?? Although, Mikie is a real tight wad with the kibble, he does regularly take me for walks in the woods. I love walking in the woods!! Hey slow poke ... why are you stopping and just looking at trees?? I have squirrels to chase and I cant just hang around in one place while you snooze!! Id just leave and go off on my own, but the coyotes might get him. More importantly, the coyotes might get ME!! The kibble police can look after himself!! The other nice thing about Mikie is that in the winter time he likes to light fires. Dont worry ... if the kibble doesnt improve the Fire Marshall is definitely getting a call. I just love sitting right in front of the stove with a blazing fire going. I am so happy that I even let one of the fat creatures share some of the space. Hey Mikie ... the fire is dying down ... get over here!! My best friend Mikie would be just about perfect if it wasnt for the Strange Lady and the Fat Creatures!!! Thanks Jet. The end!! 800

Hampton Herald - February 7, 2012

Thank you dearly for accepting our request to help those nine desperate students. Thank you many times. Please send our gratitude to Hampton and your board of directors. Sam Mncina, Head Teacher, Peak Central High School The Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership has committed to pay high school fees for nine additional students this year. 2012 will be a challenge as fees for this year have increased substantially because of additional expenses for the food program at schools; increases in the price of materials like books and stationery; and reduced government assistance. Nevertheless, the Partnership has committed to pay 100 percent of the necessary fees for all the students we selected this year. We will continue to support all the students remaining from last year and, since some have graduated and a few dropped out, a number of new students. The criteria we use to select new students are threefold: need; academic ability; and dedication. Unfortunately there are still many who meet these criteria but whom we are unable to support. John Lovett recently wrote to me about 14-year old Nonjabuliso Dlamini who came to him with tears in her eyes because she cannot attend school. She has proven herself to be an excellent student in primary school (grade 1-7) but there is nowhere for her to live close to our high schools in Piggs Peak. John tells us Her mother has died, her father has disappeared and she lives with her grandmother some twenty kilometres from Piggs Peak and who already has five other children whom she is struggling to support. Children like Nonjabuliso, without the opportunity of an education, are condemned to a life of poverty. They are especially vulnerable to abuse or at best being taken advantage of because of their dependency on any handout. These are all Gods children and their lives and futures are in our hands. Mark, I despair for these kids. I lose sleep as I strive to find solutions for them. I just want you to know how difficult it is to face children like this every day. I am certain you would find it just as hard as I do. For more information or to make a donation, please visit our website or call me, Mark Bettle, at 832-0003. 110

The Rotary Club of Hampton recently welcomed a new overseas exchange student, Madelaine Healey, from Australia. Maddie will be attending Hampton High School and will be living in the community for approximately a year. Her first host family are Kim and Warren Tompkins, whose daughter, Baillie continues to have a great year as our clubs outbound exchange student in Germany. Baillie will return home this coming summer. Right now we are still busy with our Purple Pinkie for Polio project, a combination of public awareness and a fund raising project. This past December, some of our members spoke to the children of the Norton Elementary School and soon after went back to the school and painted the childrens pinkie fingers purple in return for a donation of one dollar per pinkie. The dollar represents the cost of immunizing one child somewhere in the world against polio and the colouring of pinkie fingers is how the persons immunizing the children ensure that a child does not receive two vaccinations. At the Norton Elementary School, some ninety children contributed $134. On January 16th and 17th, three members of our club spoke to about 180 students at the Belleisle Elementary School and raised $250 for polio eradication. During late January, we will present the program for the second successive year at the Hampton Elementary and the Dr. A.T. Leatherbarrow schools. In early February we will be at the Hammond River Valley Elementary School. We have started the year with two excellent speakers: Jennifer Gendron, of Lifestyles Health & Fitness Studio, spoke to us about her business and Anne Scott told us of how she came to write a book and all that is involved in getting it into print. We are also preparing for another of our trivia nights. This is now the third year for a very popular evening of fun and fundraising. The date is saturday, march 24th. We are again looking for teams of up to eight competitors, who will square off against each other. Each team pays and entry fee of $200. The Prizes are as follows: 1st prize is a Rotary donation of $1,000 to the charity of the teams choice; 2nd is a Rotary donation of $500 and 3rd is a donation of $250. Once again the emphasis will be on several categories of general trivia. Rotarian Peter White and his spouse, Lisa, have been working hard preparing the questions. As in past years, light refreshments will be served to the competitors. The bar will be open and there will be a silent auction with proceeds going to Rotary projects. Why not gather a team from your workplace, club, family, church, or friends. Information on how to apply will be available from any Rotarian.

Creating Meaningful Events that Celebrate Life
The traditional perspective on funerals caused anthropologist Margaret Mead to remark years ago, When a person is born, we rejoice. When they are married, we celebrate. When they die, we pretend nothing happened. However, many Canadians today are reinventing funerals by creating uniquely personalized services to celebrate life. Personalizing a funeral is key to making it meaningful. It can mean anything from assembling photo/memory boards to collecting mementos to display at the visitation and funeral service, selecting a casket in a favourite colour or asking those gathered to share memories. Not satisfied with traditional funerals, Baby Boomers in particular have chosen to exert their individuality. More than a trend, this shift toward personalized, more meaningful funerals signals peoples efforts to truly celebrate the life lived, rather than death. Our Funeral Directors can help you plan an event that captures the spirit of the person, and brings meaning to everyone who attends.

Dont cry if you Love me. Death is nothing I have only gone to the other side I am me and you are you What we were for each other, we will always be. Keep giving me the name you have always given me. Speak to me like you have always spoken to me. Do not use a different tone of voice. Do not feel sombre and sad. Keep laughing at the things we used to laugh at. Pray, smile, think of me, pray with me. Keep pronouncing my name as it was always pronounced, without a sound of sadness. Life still means what it has always meant. It is what it has always been. The tie has not been cut. Why would I be out of your thoughts? I am not far, just on the other side of the road... You see all is well. You will find my heart again. And in it all its tenderness. Wipe your tears and do not cry for me if you love me.

For further information, please call 832-6086. WINTER SAFETY Children must not tunnel into and play in snow banks along sides of the streets and roadways. A child playing inside of a snow bank cannot be seen by our snowplow operators and could easily be buried and/or injured by the wing of the plow during snow clearing operations. Additionally, prior to skating on outdoor ponds, rivers, and streams, parents and guardians are reminded to check the ice and accompany children to ensure their safety. Please note that the Town maintains Dutch Point Park for the fun and enjoyment of our residents but it is unsupervised. The park contains a small pond that is approximately three feet deep. MOTORIZED VEHICLES Please be advised that motorized vehicles are not permitted in any of the Towns public parks other than on the roadways and parking lots. BOOKING THE LIGHTHOUSE RIVER CENTRE The Lighthouse River Centre is a multi-purpose rental facility located on the banks of the Kennebecasis River at 1075 Main St. It is the place to book your business meetings, community gatherings, small wedding receptions, environmental workshops and arts & culture awareness events, just to name a few possibilities. The main level of the Lighthouse River Centre features a rental facility that is equipped to comfortably seat and serve 80, and is ready to host your event. The Centre still has a few weekend dates open for 2012. Please call Cathy at 832-6096 to arrange for a viewing.

WINTER PARKING BAN Reminder that the Winter Parking Ban is in effect. There is no parking on Town streets and sidewalks nightly between midnight and 7 a.m. This is a dangerous practice and impedes snow removal operations. Vehicles may be towed at the vehicle owners expense and the owner shall be liable for a fine. This parking ban remains in effect until the end of April. STREET LIGHT OUTAGES If there is a street light that has burnt out in your neighbourhood, NB Power would like to know about it so that they have it repaired or replaced. Please report this problem by calling their customer service department at 1-800-663-6272 or by using the online form available at the NB Power website: tml PROPERTY OWNERS The Town of Hampton recommends that due to the open winter we are experiencing, all property owners should locate and mark their cellar (perimeter)drain and keep an eye on it so that it does not freeze up. A cover of spruce boughs or other protective covering would be recommended. MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS The next municipal election will be held on May 14th, 2012. Residents interested in becoming candidates are encouraged to visit the Election New Brunswick website at for information on becoming a candidate. Nomination papers are also available on the Elections NB website. In addition the Department of Local Government also offers useful information on the role of Municipal councils. DOG TAGS Did you know that all dogs are required to be registered with the Town with a valid dog tag annually? Losing the family dog can be a stressful ordeal for both the owner and the dog. Valid municipal dog tags allow for quick and easy identification of dogs if they become lost or stray. All residents should have a 2012 dog tag by March 31, 2012 in order to be in compliance with the Towns Dog Control By-law. Tags may be purchased at the Town office during regular office hours for a cost of $15.00.

in December. There are also some new activities, particularly the annual ski club which takes place every Tuesday for the group of skiers and snowboarders who signed up. These ski days, as well as the annual class trips to Poley Mountain for all the grades, will provide plenty of winter fun for all attending. This January also signified the beginning of the annual chess club, where students learn how to play chess and prepare for the chess tournament later this year. The wrestling team is another team sport that started before Christmas and continues this month. This team, coached by Mr. and Mrs. Coughlan, usually practices twice a week, and involves lots of fitness exercises and strength training. Also, the grade six classes attended an anti-bullying presentation by Anne Scott on January 23rd. Everyone was invited to wear blue that day in support of anti-bullying. It had tremendous results with lots of people wearing blue. Theres no doubt about it. January was a fun and exciting month. Douglas Brenton is a Grade 8 student at HMS. 114

(2) Succeeding generations of Col. Thomas Spraggs family continued at Hatfield Point. His son, Elijah Spragg was born in Fishkill NY in 1768; his wife Elizabeth Drake, was born three years later, in Harlem NY their marriage date is unknown to me. The two joined Thomas Spraggs removal from New York to Saint John to Hatfield Point. Both died in Hatfield Point Elijah November 9, 1837; Elizabeth October 1, 1821. Elijahs second marriage was to Anne Susan Gray. They were married November 9, 1828; she died at Hatfield Pint September 23, 1892. (3) John Drake Spragg was born at Hatfield Point in 1793; a child of his fathers first marriage. John was a farmer. His wife, Nancy Ann McDonald (she was known as Ann), was born in New Brunswick in 1795. John and Ann were married May 19, 1824. John died at Springfield June 19, 1871 (July 1, 1870 in another source). Anns death occurred after 1871. When John lived in Springfield in 1861 he was a farm proprietor; four years later he was a woodboatman at Belleisle. They had 10 children five boys, five girls; the seventh child was William. (4) William A. Spragg was born in New Brunswick in 1834, but his time in Kings County was punctuated with absences. In 1847 he was living in Maine, and later lived for a time in Wisconsin and Illinois. At the age of 27 he and his wife Hannah (nee Hannah A. Allen), their daughter Anna I. Spragg and father-in-law (Francis Allen) seemed to be in Springfield, Kings County. By 1862 William appears to be in Nevada where it is noted he discovered the Excelsior Mine. Hannah, who was born in this province in 1838 married William, December 21, 1859 in New Brunswick. William and Hannah had four children; it is through the second child, Ella Jane, that this line continues. For some reason my information usually show Ella Janes surname as Sprague, not Spragg. (5) Williams daughter, Ella Jane Sprague, was born at Hatfield Point March 6, 1862. She seems to have had none of her fathers wanderlust, remaining in Hatfield Point throughout her life. Her husband, Charles Knowles Nobles, was born in the same community four years earlier April 20, 1858. Charles was a farmer; they were both of the Baptist faith. Charles and Ella Jane Nobles were married January 21, 1881. They had nine children. It is through Harry, their second child who was also their second son, that we will continue this line. Ella Jane died January 29, 1943 at Hatfield Point and is buried at the Bayview Cemetery, in that community, as are several of her ancestors. Charles died at age 77 years on June 17, 1935. Part II to be continued. 127

Working with global decision makers for over a decade, Watt-Cloutier offers a new model for 21st Century leadership. She treats the issues of our day - the environment, the economy, foreign policy, global health, and sustainability - not as separate concerns, but as a deeply interconnected whole. She maintains that every decision, whether environmental, political or economic, has a profound effect on those far from the corridors of power; and to understand this connection is vital to building a sustainable world. Currently a visiting scholar at Mount Allison University in Sackville NB, Sheila Watt-Cloutier normally resides in Nunavut. She is the recipient of numerous global awards and honourary degrees and remains connected to her lifes work through activism and advocacy which includes membership as Commissioner on the Civil Society Commission on Arctic Climate Change led by the Aspen Institute. This free Annual Human Rights Forum will take place at the Hampton Middle School at 7:00pm, followed by refreshments and an opportunity to talk with Ms. Watt-Cloutier. The Annual

A smile cost nothing, but gives so much. It enriches those who receive it, without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it. A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in business, and is the countersign of friendship. It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and it is natures best antidote for trouble. Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give. ~ BJ.Morbitzer. CC02

Fat Cats
Is there anyone who doesnt love Garfield? You know, the big orange cat whose motto in life is All I do is eat and sleep. Eat and sleep. Eat and sleep. There must be more to a cats life than that. But I hope not. Well, I have three cats, and though they may not have Garfields attitude two of the three are definitely a mite, well, tubby. Not huge, but certainly overweight. They have never had lasagna, but being indoor cats they do not get a lot of exercise. Plus we have normally free fed all of our cats. The dry cat food and lots of fresh water stay out all the time and are refilled whenever empty. This has worked well for previous cats, but obviously is not the correct process for these ones! I have often wondered how I could reduce the food intake for one or two cats without starving the other and have never come upon a workable solution, or at least not one that didnt have me policing each cat so as to ensure no one eats two meals while someone else gets little or nothing. But . . . I now have a plan. After much research on cat foods - protein levels, weight control vs not, etc - and some pondering, I started a new feeding regime. No more food out all the time. There are now three meal times, and only three meal times, and at all other times the food is put away out of the reach of little paws. The dish goes down for a half hour when I get up, a half hour at supper time and another half hour at bedtime. They can eat all they want during those time periods, but when the timer goes, the dish goes! Wisely, I started this on a workday so that I did not have to listen to the pitiful cries of a starving cat. Smudge has always been VERY vocal when the food dish even begins to approach empty, so a missing food dish definitely warrants complaint. Loud and often! Within a few days, however, even she seems to have adapted and while there are still moments of distress they are dwindling. And not because she is prostate, weak from hunger, but because she has learned it does no good. It has only been a couple of weeks, too soon to tell if it is going to result in any weight reduction. Crossing my fingers. Meanwhile for all you non-morning people who hate to get up: Ill rise, but I wont shine. ~ Garfield. 801
