What could be one of the worst nightmares that a guy could ever experience?? You get into a boxing match with the missus and she cleans your clock. Yes … you heard right!! Now mind you it was only on a TV screen using our new video game system, but still it was pretty painful!! No not my body, just my ego. Now these games are not perfect (obviously) but their ability to translate your body movements and put it all on the TV is truly remarkable. So ... hiding the embarrassment of my boxing defeat, we moved on to table tennis. Once upon a time I was a fairly experienced table tennis player, but that experience failed me as I went down to further defeat and humiliation. But, with my “never say die” personality, I went about practicing my table tennis with renewed vigour. I moved up from beginner to amateur to professional and from there demanded a rematch with the missus. Victory!!!!! Not even close, I won each game!!! Just as in life, success usually takes a lot of practice. But success isn’t just doing the same things over and over again. To truly develop new skills you have to experiment and try new ideas. What happens when I do this and if I change this what happens?? Effective practice isn’t so much about simply doing or playing, it is also about learning and adapting. For instance, one of the things that I have learned is to never challenge the missus to a game until I have achieved some real level of skill at it or even better, find a sneaky way to win without skill. I am thinking that if I can convince Xbox to get a better handle on reality, the missus should be way too short to ever give me a head shot. Another thing I haven’t tried, is to see what would happen if I kick her real good. Against the rules, who knows but could be worth a try. Alternatively, I could adopt a more mature attitude towards losing. You know, “It’s not whether you win or lose but how you play the game”. I could do that you know, but somehow it just doesn’t seem as appealing as trying to kick her butt. 800

A short note on Flora’s background … her father (Frederic Hussey sr.) and her mother (Louisa) had four children – Frederick Jr., Flora, Percy and Waldron. The Hussey family immigrated to Winnipeg from Belfast, Ireland in 1889. Frederic, the father, lived only eight years in Canada – his widow opened a boarding house to support the family. In 1901 the three oldest children did their ge3st to help their mother; Frederick earned $400; Flora, $17; Percy, $250. Three years later Flora was still living at home with her mother and brothers, but working as a stenographer. “Flo” found a position at the Manitoba Government Telephone Company for the next tine years. The labour situation was very poor at the time and a general strike occurred in Winnipeg in 1918-19. the telephone company had a policy that a mother with children could not work for them. Since her husband Harry’s departure in 1915, Flo was a single mother of two children. She kept this information hidden for a time; “finally, finding it increasingly difficult to keep enough food on the table or even to keep track of two lively sons, she sought help from her estranged husband’s family in Hatfield Point, New Brunswick.” After arranging for some time off, in 1916, Flora took the boys by train to New Brunswick for what she believed would be a temporary stay. “when she reluctantly left them with their grandparents that day, she did not dream she would never see her elder son again or that Clarence would forever feel she had abandoned him.” Flo found her in-laws, Charles and Ella Jane Nobles, and their son Charles, worked hard on their Kings County homestead. Fish were available from Belleisle Bay; and crops could be grown on their land. The Hatfield Point home seemed the best situation for her sons at this difficult time. Apparently the grandparents did not explain to the boys the reason for their parents’ separation and why they were living in New Brunswick. If Flora had told them, it apparently did not register with Clarence who was eight years old, and with Earle, who was three years younger. “Worse than that, they [Charles and Ella Jane] did not deliver Flora’s letters to her sons or speak of her at all. Her name as absolutely forbidden in the home and soon Earle forgot her. Clarence didn’t. Nor did he forgive her.” Clarence felt he had been abandoned by his mother, but for Flora their stay with the grandparents was to be only temporary for the boys. In 1919 Flora wrote Charles and Ella Jane that she felt she was now able to support the boys and that she was coming for them. The grandparents immediately sent word to Harry in Tucson, Arizona. He made contact with his sister, Fannie Florence (Nobles) McCoy, in Boston, to take the boys to her house until he was well enough to care for them. Harry Nobles (now calling himself Harry Nolan) told her to tell the USA border officials that the boys’ surname was now “Nolan” and not “Nobles”. Fannie arrived at Hatfield Point one day and the next day left for Boston with the youngsters. Because of the name change, Flora never found her sons. To be continued. 127

Travel Tips to Help Road Trippers Hit the Ground Running
Perhaps no other time of year is more anticipated than spring. After a cold winter, many people await the arrival of spring like a child awaits the arrival of Christmas morning. Among the more popular annual rites of spring is the road trip. A chance to tackle the great outdoors with the spring wind in your hair, spring road trips have come to define a season beloved by outdoor enthusiasts. For those planning their own road trip this season, consider the following tips to ensure yours goes off without a hitch. Give your car a thorough wash. While it might seem obvious to get your car washed once spring arrives, few might be aware that a thorough car wash pays practical as well as aesthetic dividends. Over the course of a typical winter, vehicles are exposed to all sorts of harmful elements, including salt used to improve icy road conditions and slush and grime leftover over from winter snowstorms. These elements can create deposits that make it difficult for a car to run smoothly, resulting in poor fuel efficiency and possibly harming the vehicle even further. Don't forget the first aid kit, but pack it last. Road trips, especially those with active kids along for the ride, often include a few cuts or scrapes. That's why it's always wise to take inventory of the first aid kit before heading out on the road. Make sure the first aid kit is fully stocked since the last time you hit the road. In case of a

legitimate emergency, you will want the first aid kit readily available and won't want to waste time digging it out from under everything else in the trunk of the car. Give a passenger a spare set of car keys. No one plans on losing their car keys; it just happens from time to time. At home, this can be a nuisance. On a road trip, particularly one to a remote area, this can be a disaster. While you don't have to plan on losing your keys, you can plan on what you'll do if you lose them by making a spare set for a passenger along for the trip. That way, if your travels take you on a hike in some isolated woodlands or to soak up some rays at the beach, you'll have a spare set of keys readily available should yours end up missing.

By Trudy Kelly Forsythe, library committee member Started in April 2006, the Hampton Public Regional Library Committee became an ad hoc committee of the Town of Hampton in October 2007. Over the years, it has held numerous meetings and initiated a library site selection study as part of the Town of Hampton recreation master plan. That study looked at such locations as the Hampton Courthouse, a standalone building on Main Street and as an addition to Hampton High School. For various reasons, the optimal choice was a stand-alone building. However, at this time, Town Council does not support the building and operation of a stand-alone public library. But, at the August 2011 library committee meeting, the Mayor and Council did say they would support the inclusion of a library as part of a multi-use facility in Hampton if the town moves forward on such a project. Did you know? The New Brunswick Public Library System provides access to a provincial collection of more than 1.8 million items, including books, music and movies. The New Brunswick Public Library System offers a variety of programs for adults and children such as story hour and public lectures as well as services such as reference, Inter-Library loan and public access workstations. New Brunswick Public Library programs and services are designed to respond to the educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs of residents of the province. The library system supports economic and social development and promotes self-reliance by providing opportunities for New Brunswickers to enhance their knowledge and their creative capabilities. What do you think? We want to know what you think about having a public library in Hampton. Watch the next Hampton Herald for information on a survey to give the Town and library committee your feelings about this topic. If you would like more information now, or want to get involved, contact Richard Malone at the Town office (832-6400, firstname.lastname@example.org. com) or committee chair Robyn Baxter (763-2577, b4of4@ hotmail.com). 133 Belleisle Creek Seniors will be holding Card Parties at the Belleisle Creek Hall on Saturday afternoons starting at 1:30pm.

Much to the sadness of family and friends, Betty Misener, 90, of Hampton, NB, widow of H. Maxwell “Max” Misener, passed away February 6, 2012 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Saint John. She was born in St. Catharines, ON, daughter of the late Lancelot and Theodora (Wigg) Overholt. Betty, widely known for her bright and infectious smile, cheery outlook, compassion and intelligence, enjoyed a wide circle of friends and a social life that brought her pleasure every day. She also took great joy in her garden, the birds at her feeders and reading the latest novel. Ever the loving mother, time spent with her daughters – paddling on the river, shopping, the exchanging of books and the long phone calls – was a highlight for Betty, who was also always willing and able to debate with her sons-in-law over social issues and politics. During the Air Force career of her beloved Max, Betty lived in cities from PEI to Saskatchewan before settling in Hampton in 1972. During her younger years, Betty, always active in her community, was a volunteer for both the Red Cross and Hampton’s Food Basket. She was also a longtime, cherished member of the Hampton United Church and its U.C.W., and more recently, the Hampton Seniors Resource Centre. She was also a member of the Ossekeag Singers, some of whom sang at Betty’s widely-attended 90th birthday celebration in June. She is survived by four daughters, Nancy Misener (David Heard) of White Rock, BC, Victoria Robinson (Ron) of Toronto, ON, Jenny Misener-Davidson (Terry) of Toronto, ON, Melinda Misener (Joel Wiseman) of Kelowna, BC; son-in-law, Albert Roche of Carleton Place, ON ; grandchildren, Sarah, Elliot, Lauren, Matthew, Elizabeth and Theodore; many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her eldest daughter, Beverly Roche. Betty’s family would like to thank the Extra Mural nurses who, in recent years, enabled her to stay in the home she loved, as well as the caring staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital when she could not. The funeral was held February 28, 2012 from Reid’s Funeral Home, Hampton, to Hampton United Church. Rev. Dr. Philip Griffin-Allwood officiated. The organist was Cheryl Bezanson and Hampton United Church Choir provided music. Memories of Betty were shared by son-in-law, Albert Roche. A reception followed in the church hall. Interment will take place in Maple Lawn Cemetery, Louth, ON at a later date. Memorials may be made to Hampton United Church or a charity of your choice. Online donations and condolences may be made at: reidsfh.com.

Hampton Herald - March 6, 2012 23 www.ossekeag.ca
By Hayley Doucette During my time at Hampton Middle School, I have never been so proud to be a “wildcat.” After recent incidents in schools far and wide, HMS has made extreme efforts to bring one topic in particular to the public’s attention: bullying. HMS students and staff were stunned after hearing about the recent increase in bullying, not just in our own school, but in others as well. I will admit, when bullying takes place in a setting such as school, where a child is expected to be each and every day throughout the week, it is shocking, and quite terrifying. So why am I proud to be a “wildcat” when all of this is happening? Because of the tremendous efforts HMS is making to bring the troublesome problem to the public’s attention. In December, students made an independent statement by wearing pink on their own to stand up to bullies everywhere. The staff took this remarkable statement and turned it into something more. The next week, HMS held a “bullying awareness day,” where students wore blue, another anti-bullying colour, to show their support. Posters and large banners were put up around the school to advertise the importance of putting a stop to the never-ending problem. Teachers spoke with students, personal experiences were shared and staff worked hard to prevent the problem from happening.
But, was the action only temporary? Certainly not. The levels of bullying have gone down tremendously, and those great efforts continue. Pink T-shirts were sold for the February 29th “pink day,” another day for bullying awareness. I feel students have never been so willing to work together, or as closely, as they are now. I thank the staff, especially Mrs. Dingee and Mrs. KetchumBoudreau (HMS’s principal and vice-principal) for making our school a comfortable, cheerful place to be, just as it always has been, but more so. Make your mark and stand up! Hayley Doucette is a Grade 8 student at HMS. 114

A Yiddish Folk Tale An old man sat outside the walls of a great city. When travellers approached, they would ask the old man, “What kind of people live in this city?” The old man would answer, “What kind of people live in the place where you came from?” If the travelers answered, “Only bad people live in the place where we came from,” the old man would reply, “Continue on; you will find only bad people here.” But if the travelers answered, “Good people live in the place where we came from,” then the old man would say, “Enter, for here too, you will find only good people.” CC17

Sam Mncina, the principal of Peak Central, recently visited Richard Matsenjwa, the new principal at Fundukuwela. John Lovett was there and tells us “one of the topics we discussed was the personal and grass roots assistance of Hampton. Unlike many causes, which solicit funds and where the funds disappear into an anonymous vat, the Hampton Partnership benefits the students directly and at a very personal level. We can see the results - children who otherwise would be condemned to a life of poverty or possibly worse, are provided with the opportunity to escape the cycle into which so many others are trapped. The results are tangible when we see them graduate and move on to higher education or to employment for which, without an education, they would not be qualified. We have a growing list of successes for which Hampton must take credit and be proud.” One of the keys to our success is our thriving Starfish program. We currently have 65 individuals or organizations in Hampton supporting one or more students in Piggs Peak. On Sunday, February 26th the Partnership had an Appreciation Night for Starfish Sponsors. Karen Mandy summarized the importance of the Starfish program in a letter to those attending. “Having lived and worked in the community here in Piggs Peak for the past 23 years, I have seen how, in recent years, the strain of HIV and AIDS have impacted families at a grass-roots level. Today we see grandmothers and school-going children heading the majority of households in this area; homes, where a whole generation is missing. Many households struggle to put food on the table; and in a country where education is not free and a school uniform is compulsory, more and more children are sitting at home frustrated and doing everything (and I mean, everything) they can simply to survive. Without your support these children would not be able to afford an education; but far more than that, what the Starfish Program quite simply does is give these young people hope and a future. You step in at a time in their lives when they are most vulnerable and you provide them with an alternative way forward - you open a door for them that would have otherwise remained firmly closed. As Westerners we see education as a right; to these young people, it is a privilege, and to most of them, it is a means to escape the life in which, (through circumstances not of their own creation) they have found themselves trapped. I honestly cannot express in words how valuable and precious is the gift that you give to each one of our Starfish students.” If you would like to become a Starfish sponsor please visit our website www.hamptonpiggspeak.ca or call me, Mark Bettle, at 832-0003. 110

Hon. Rob Moore, P.C, M.P. Since it is now tax time, I want to remind you of some of the ways you may be able to save on your 2011 taxes. Since 2006, our government has helped Canadians by reducing taxes in over 120 ways. These include: cuts to the GST, reductions in income taxes, the introduction of the landmark Tax-Free Savings Account and targeted tax cuts for families, seniors and job creators. We have helped a typical Canadian family save nearly $3,100 on average, per year. This year, I want you to get the most out of your 2011 tax return. In this article, you will find a list of some of the valuable tax credits that are available. Our government has introduced Pension Income Splitting, which allows any Canadian resident who receives qualifying pension income to allocate to their spouse up to one half of their income. We have also doubled the Pension Income Credit from $1000 to $2000. We have increased the Age Amount to help seniors keep more money to meet their retirement needs. Also, we are providing Canadians with the Caregiver Amount for Canadians that are caring for a loved one. This responsibility is both emotionally
MOORE fROM OTTAWA and financially difficult and under our government, a caregiver
may be eligible to claim up to $4,282. Our government is providing many other tax credits including; the Canada Child Tax Credit that allows Canadian families to claim a tax credit of over $2000 per child, the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit, which allows parents to claim a tax credit on up to $500 and the Child Arts Tax Credit which allows parents to claim up to $500 as well. You may also be eligible to take advantage of the Volunteer Firefighters Tax Credit which amounts to $3,000, or the Hiring Credit for Small Business that provides up to $1,000. We believe that Canadian families know how to best save, invest or spend their money; not government, which is why we will continue to promote an environment where Canadians keep more of their hard earned money. We will continue to support Canadian seniors, Canadian families and Canadian employers.

When Annelise was born missing part of her left arm, her parents felt shocked, worried and very alone. The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program had a life-changing impact, allaying their fears and helping to put Annelise on the road to future independence. As New Brunswick residents receive their annual War Amps key tags, they will find enclosed a letter from Annelise explaining the mailing’s theme of “Growing up with CHAMP.” In it, she describes how CHAMP was there from the start, providing funding for artificial limbs, regional seminars, tools to deal with issues like teasing and staring and answers to questions about driving and joining the workforce. She also expresses her pride at being asked as a teen to be a CHAMP Junior Counsellor. “Not only had I come full circle, but I also became part of the ‘amputees helping amputees’ tradition started by The War Amps more than 90 years ago,” she says. Public support of The War Amps Key Tag Service allows child amputees across Canada to continue to grow up with CHAMP. Key tags protect any keys, not just car keys! Since 1946, The War Amps has returned more than one million sets of keys, and the service is more vital than ever, with the extremely high replacement cost of keys and remote devices. Each key tag has a confidentially coded number. Should the keys be lost, the finder need only call the toll-free number on the back of the tag, or deposit them in any mailbox, and the keys will be returned to the owner by bonded courier. The War Amps receives no government grants. For more information, or to order key tags, call toll-free 1-800-250-3030 or visit waramps.ca. 813

Hampton High’s PSSC would like to extend a Tip of the Hat to Tina Whitney. Last year Tina noticed that some of our grads were struggling trying to meet with the substantial costs associated with graduation and it’s associated activities. This past fall Tina, with the help of Krista Hovey, established the “Adopt a Grad” program at Hampton High. Tina’s vision was to find financial sponsorships for 10 grads in need. The program would help defer the costs of grad pictures, formal prom attire, grad fees, costs of grad dinners etc, helping make all the activities associated with graduation available to all grads! The Adopt a Grad program has been a huge success due largely to Tina and all her hard work. Thanks Tina, you have a big heart and you always have time for our students. If you would like to send a “Tip of the Hat” to acknowledge someone who gives of themselves to their community without recognition or pay, just send us their name, community and a brief description of their acts of kindness. See page two for our contact information. 124

Hampton Herald - March 6, 2012
By Debbie Hickey
Our birthday is fast approaching. As I mentioned last issue, on April 6th the Hampton Herald will be thirty years old. Coming up in October the Valley Viewer reaches another milestone, turning twenty. While thirty is only one year more than twentynine, for some reason the “round” numbers always seem to hold more authority! And are generally deemed more worthy of celebration. So we here at Ossekeag have been contemplating how to best celebrate these anniversaries. If this were a thirtieth wedding anniversary it would traditionally be celebrated with pearls. Well, I have no pearls to hand out, not even pearls of wisdom. What I do have is a request. To mark these special dates we propose to publish our top tips for “building better communities”. That is after all what Ossekeag Publishing is all about. We solicit your editorial on all of the great things happening in the communities we serve and at no charge to you to submit, or to you to receive, we share that information with everyone in the community. For our anniversary we want to take this one step further. It is our hope to publish tips on simple things we can do to help build better communities, whether it is donating to the food bank, picking up litter when we are walking or reading to kindergarten students at the local school. We encourage you to send in your ideas and tips for us to compile and share. And more . . . look around your community and take note of those people who are role models for building better communities and tell us about them. The person who continues to coach minor hockey long after their own kids have grown and moved on. The person who is always first to step forward to help a family in need. The student who organizes food drives. April is also Volunteer Month, so what a great time to acknowledge the people in our communities who do so much to make our place in the world so amazing. To inspire each of us: Wherever a man turns he can find someone who needs him. ~Albert Schweitzer . . . and . . . If you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in bed with a mosquito. ~Betty Reese. 801
