“BOXInG”
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??
Efective 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, fnd 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 nIGHT AT THe rAceS
A very special fundraising event is happening at Rothesay High
School on Saturday, April 14
th
. Te funds raised will support
the eforts of 13 Rotary Interact Club students who will build
a school in a small and very poor village in the Dominican
Republic.
Te trip is under the guidance of Go. See. And Do! - an excellent
program that has made over 20 trips to the Dominican Republic
assisting numerous families in need. It is a recognized by Rotary
International. Te Interact Club is sponsored by the Rothesay
Kings Rotary Club and the Rotary Club of Saint John.
Te fundraiser is an important step towards raising $26,000 to
help with the build. Imagine for just a moment that your child
is being educated in an old school bus. And then imagine again
the joy that will be brought to the students and parents of this
village when they have a real classroom. Like every parent, they
want what is best for their child and these 13 students will help
that become a reality.
Tickets for A Night at the Races are available at the Rothesay
High School Ofce.
It is sure to be an evening flled with friends, fun and food
and lots of chances to win great prizes like a Miramichi salmon
fshing excursion, a $1,500 room makeover, or a $500 weekend
getaway at the Halifax Marriot just to name just a few. We hope
to see you there! 221

CBDC Kings and Junior Achievement are teaming up in
the Kings County and surrounding rural areas to promote
entrepreneurship to our youth! If you are unfamiliar with
Junior Achievement, it is the largest non-proft organization
dedicated to inspiring and preparing youth to succeed in a
global economy. JA ofers business education programs in the
areas of work readiness, entrepreneurship and fnancial literacy,
delivered at no cost to elementary, middle and high schools. Our
unique programs allow students to experience and understand
business, preparing them for leadership. Tey enable young
people to gain fnancial responsibility, make confdent decisions
and become innovators. Tis is where we need your help!
We are calling upon business professionals in our area to
volunteer to help promote entrepreneurship. What this would
entail would be meeting with the JA Regional Director and
learning about what it is JA does and how you would deliver the
info to the students. You then would visit a school and explain
the program while drawing from your own personal business
experiences and making the situations real for the kids.
Tere are currently two upcoming volunteer opportunities:
Monday, March 19
th
- Quispamsis Middle School, three
volunteers needed to deliver a condensed version of a program
called, “Economics for Success.” Tis is only one hour and has
grade eight students go through a budgeting exercise to show
them the importance of having a successful career and staying
in school all while learning about fnancial literacy in a practical
way.
Friday, April 13
th
- Belleisle Elementary School, fve volunteers
needed (one per class) to deliver the “Our Community” program
to grades 3-5. Te session is about two hours, and it’s a really fun
way for the kids to get thinking about what “needs” are and how
the businesses in their community help to satisfy those needs.
Keep in mind, this information is for kids and is tailored for
their age groups. So if you are concerned about the topics or not
being an expert, everything is addressed prior to meeting the
children. In total, you would likely be looking at between three
and four hours of volunteer time (training and presenting).
Check out the Junior Achievement website if you would like
information on the organization and what else they do - new-

Project Linus was named for the adorable blanket toting
character from the “Peanuts” comic strip. Charles Schultz was
aware of Project Linus and was delighted to have Linus inspire
blanket makers to help comfort a child in need. Blankets are
given to children when they are in need of a big warm HUG!
My chapter has donated to the Hampton and Grand Bay RCMP,
Rothesay Fire and Police departments, Hestia House, First Steps
and other children who were in need.
I would like to Tank Vera Turnbull, students, staf and parents
of RCS Netherwood for their kind and generous donations to
Project Linus. Vera has been a tireless worker on the Project for
10 years. Every year she comes up with more and more quilts,
she is a dynamo. A large tip of the hat to her and her students/
staf that get together for this. Without people like this Project
Linus would not exist.
At this time I would also like to ask for yarn donations for a
wonderful lady who has ofered to knit blankets for Project Linus
- wew worsted four-ply or baby yarn is acceptable, large balls
make a quilt for a teen in need, smaller one for the youngsters.

An old man sat outside the walls of a great city. When travellers

live in this city?” Te 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 fnd only
bad people here.”
But if the travelers answered, “Good people live in the place

several members of the Hampton Rotary Club travelled to
La Romana, and this year Rotarian Grant Kimball from the
Rothesay-Kings Rotary and his wife Kathi made the trip to
physically help with the installation of the Biosand Water
Filters. During the past two years through the efforts of
Rotarians there have been over a thousand filtration systems
installed in the Bateys of the Eastern Dominican Republic,
providing clean safe water to families of that region.
The Rothesay- Kings Rotary has already began it’s fundraising

Adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle is something
many people do selflessly in an effort to protect the
environment and ensure that the generations to
come have a healthy planet at their disposal. But
that same lifestyle can also pay instant dividends,
helping homeowners save money and creating a
healthier atmosphere in which to live.
As spring cleaning season gets set to hit full swing,
what better time to do some "spring greening"?
Homeowners can make the most of spring cleaning
by making several manageable changes around the
house that can protect the environment without
disrupting one's current lifestyle.
Clean green. Instead of using harmful chemical
cleaners when cleaning around the house this
spring, choose green cleaning supplies that don't
release harmful chemicals or toxins into the air.
Paint with the planet in mind. Spring is a popular

Fix those drafts. Chances are, after a long winter
homeowners are well aware of which rooms were

those colder rooms and plug any air leaks around
the house. This will result in a lower heating bill
next winter and could save substantial amounts
of energy. For homeowners with attics, checking
the attic for air infiltration should be done each

release harmful chemicals or toxins into the air.

Every spring, homeowners head outside to take
stock of how the winter treated their lawn.
Homeowners in areas that experience heavy snow
or rainfall each winter likely do not look forward to
this inventory, fearful of what another harsh winter
did to their property. Fallen tree branches, frozen
ground and winter wind storms can do a number on
even the most well-manicured lawns, turning a
summertime labor of love into a nightmare.
While homeowners might not be able to do anything
about the weather, there are ways to revitalize a
lawn each spring. And you don't have to be an
accomplished landscaper to handle the task. The
following tips can help bring your luscious lawn
back to life, helping make winter a distant memory.
Revitalize Your Lawn After
a Long Winter
Remove all debris from your yard. Debris
includes any trash in the yard, wood, large roots,
fallen branches, and even stones. The presence
of trash such as broken glass or even faded
paper products such as cups or bags is not only
unsafe for the environment, but it can prove
harmful to anyone who might be out in the yard
once your grass grows, especially if you have
children. Oftentimes, winter winds can blow
trash from nearby garbage cans across the yard,
no matter how neatly homeowners put out their
trash.
Consider seeding the lawn if need be. For lawns
that took a particularly harsh beating over the
winter, consider seeding the lawn to help
revitalize it. When seeding a lawn, be sure you
choose the right seeds. Different regions respond
better to different types of grass. But don't be
intimidated if you don't know the correct grass to
choose. Simply ask a landscaper or consult a
lawn care specialist at a nearby home
improvement center as to which type of grass is
the best fit your region and your yard.
Smooth the soil. Once all debris been removed,
examine the soil for any abnormalities that might
need to be smoothed out. Use a spade or rake to
smooth any areas that aren't up to par. Next you'll
want to loosen the soil as well, something that
can be done with a garden rake. Any unsightly
areas, such as humps or ditches, should either be
smoothed out or filled in, depending on which is
appropriate. This can be done with some soil and
should not prove too costly.
When you're ready to seed, the seed can be
scattered by hand for smaller yards, or with a
drop spreader for larger lawns. When spreading
with a drop spreader, use the suggested amount
of seed on the bag (even a little less seed should
do the trick) and make sure you spread out the
rows evenly in the same direction. Once you've
sowed the first part of your lawn in one direction,
you can crisscross back over that part at a
90-degree angle, making sure you keep equal
distance and calibrate your spreader at the same
speed.
Add mulch for aesthetic and practical appeal.
Moist helps the soil, and can also add aesthetic
appeal to a lawn. Moist helps the soil by allowing
it to retain moisture, making it more conducive to
growing healthy grass. When laying mulch down,
keep the mulch at roughly a quarter-inch to
ensure your lawn will grow in nicely.

One of the best things about the dawn of spring and
the return of warmer weather is the chance to get
out of the house and get some fresh air. For
homeowners, this is the perfect opportunity to
assess any damage the previous months did to
yards and develop a plan restore properties.
Restoring Your Property After
a Long Winter
S¡vir¿ fix·s
Don't jump the gun. The first warm day of spring
might seem like a great time get out in the yard
and get your hands dirty. But it's best to wait until
the grass has completely dried out before getting
to work. Raking on wet grass increases the risk of
tearing out grass, which can cause bald spots and
the growth of weeds down the road. In addition,
stepping on the grass while the ground is still wet
can compact the soil, which can slow drainage
and block the lawn's roots from breathing.
Aerate, particularly if the yard is a heavy traffic
area once the warm weather arrives. If your yard
transforms into a child's wonderland upon the
arrival of spring and summer, you might want to
revive the soil by aerating. When the yard gets
heavy usage, it's easy for soil to become
compacted, which makes it hard for air and water
to reach the lawn's roots. That can eventually
make for a less-than-appealing lawn. So if your
yard is the place to be come the warmer months,
aerate in the spring to loosen the soil and make it
easier for the lawn to withstand the months
ahead.
Remove debris that's piled up. Debris has a
tendency to infest a yard over the course of the
winter months. Fallen branches, stones and even
trash can accumulate in a yard, putting those who
spend time in the yard at risk of injury once the
warm weather returns. For instance, bits of twigs
and pebbles that are blown across the yard
during a windy winter can be embedded in the
yard, making the yard less of a haven and more
of a hazard. Once the grass is dry enough to walk
on, walk around the property and remove any
debris that's piled up over the last few months.
Employ a pre-emergent weed killer. Homeowners
who routinely spend their summers agonizing
over weeds throughout the yard should consider
applying a pre-emergent weed killer around the
beginning of spring. It's important to do so
around the end of March or early April, when the
weeds have not yet had a chance to grow. When
applying, follow the dosage instructions provided
by the product's manufacturer. Such instructions
often recommend a second application right
before summer begins.
Remove thatch. Once the grass has dried, you
can begin to remove thatch that's built up over
the winter. Thatch is potentially very harmful to
soil, blocking sunlight, air and moisture the soil
needs to ensure a lawn looks lush and healthy.
Thatch removal does not necessarily need to be
an annual task. If thatch buildup is insignificant,
then it can be done every other year. Just use a
dethatching rake to make the job much easier.

The spring season is a time for many things, from
rediscovering the great outdoors to clearing the
clutter leftover from another long winter.
For many homeowners, that spring cleaning also
means a careful examination of a home's exterior.
Winter can prove especially harsh on a home's
exterior, in particular the roof. While stains on the
ceiling or obvious leaks are easy ways to detect roof
damage, many times problems with a roof are not
so obvious. For homeowners hoping to give their
roof a thorough end-of-winter examination,
consider the following tips for recognizing roof
damage.
Recognizing Roof Damage
Hcv· S¡vir¿ fix·s
Look on the ground surrounding the home. While
it might seem odd to look down to see if a roof
has been damaged, some of the most telltale
signs of roof damage could be right in the yard,
nearby bushes or driveway. Once the snow
clears, homeonwers should take a walk around
the property and look on the grounds for any
shingles, be it full shingles or pieces of shingle.
This is best done as soon as possible and
definitely should be done before the first lawn
mowing of the spring season.
Inspect the roof's supporting cast. Homeowners
living in regions where heavy snowfall is common
should also look at the support beams in their
attics. Roofs tend to take a beating in regions
with heavy snowfall, as the weight of all that snow
can take its toll over time. Even if the roof
appears to have made it through another harsh
winter, it's still a safe and smart bet to see how
well the roof's supporting cast handled the harsh
weather as well.

Our birthday is fast approaching. As I mentioned last issue, on
April 6
th
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 twenty-
nine, 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”. Tat is afer 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. Te
person who continues to coach minor hockey long afer their
own kids have grown and moved on. Te person who is always
frst to step forward to help a family in need. Te 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 fnd 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
