“SPRING UPDATE”
Well, let’s see what is going on!! I have a couple of loads of wood
that I cut over the winter, while doing some thinning, that is now
all cut and split. I have also been out this spring doing a bit more
thinning and patch cutting. I am going to take it easy though
until we get a woodlot management plan in place, because that
will help set the priorities in terms of what should be done frst.
For those individuals who own woodlots and want to take
some proactive measures to improve the quality and quantity of
wood that is growing, there are remarkably inexpensive services
available by joining a local wood co-op. For those who just want
to sit on their property and let mother nature do her thing,
that is fne also, just consider protecting the property through
land trusts or easements that will stop future owners from clear
cutting what has taken many, many years to develop.
Tanks to the dry spells we have had this spring, I have gotten
out to do some more work on my woods road. Unfortunately,
afer just one heavy rain it takes about a week for it to dry out
and useable again. My biggest hope, is that before winter, I will
have all of the ditching done so that it should only take a fairly
short time to dry out and be usable afer a heavy downpour.
Back in the woods, we are scouting along the roadside for
desirable small trees such as spruce, pine and some cedar, and
replanting them in areas that are exclusively fr and/or birch.
In just a hundred or so short years, the forest makeup of trees
should be signifcantly better.
Every time I walk by my dead hemlock remains, I wonder if
there is such a thing as “Tree CPR”. If there is, I suspect that the
time for which it might work is long past. Oh Sigh!!
Outside of the woods, we are doing a bit more landscaping
and planting, but nothing major so far. Te grand-grand kids are
both very cute and lovable, the missus is still annoying and Te
Jet seems to be following in her foot steps. (Maybe more later.)
On the lighter side:
1. Light travels faster than sound. Tis is why some people
appear bright until you hear them speak
2. He who laughs last, thinks the slowest.
3. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
4. Tose who live by the sword get shot by those who don’t.
5. Nothing is foolproof to a sufciently talented fool. 800

MULCH TIME AGAIN
Mulch sales abound at this time of year and along with them
the hints from most garden centers and landscape bods that the
product will render your garden instantly weed free and practically
work free. Be not fooled!
Quite frankly, working in my garden gives me great joy and a
freshly weeded bed provides a lot more satisfaction than a newly
scrubbed kitchen foor ever could! Certainly the mulch has a
killing efect when laid at about a three inch depth however it’s
prudent to bear in mind that what can kill the undesirables can also
wipe out the treasures. If your lifestyle dictates the use of mulch,
care needs to be taken with the application; a space of at least six
inches around the plant or bush, should be lef where compost
mixed with some well rotted manure can be applied, this insures
that there’s enough nourishment for the plant to survive since the
mulch will take a lot of nutrients from the soil as it decomposes.
Mulch should always be applied afer a soaking rain in order to
trap the moisture in the soil. I use heavy mulch on pathways and
actually recycle the large plastic bags on the surface covered with
layers of newspapers and topped of with the mulch. Sadly this
method is not suitable elsewhere in the garden. With advancing
years the plastic bagged type is infnitely more manageable than
the great truck loads that I have used in the past
By not using mulch on the fower beds there is better opportunity
for plants to expand and a greater likelihood of those wonderful
volunteer plants, blown in by the wind or dropped from the
heavens by passing aviators; they are always great fun and ofen
provide treasures that could wreck the budget at the local nurseries.
Tis is a great time of year to clean out ponds and care needs to
be taken to preserve the wild life in them; a collection of water
snails is a valuable asset to keeping things ship shape, so it’s best
to lif the leaves with a small plastic rake and sit them down on
the surround of the pond, giving suitable time for the livestock
to return. Every pond gets overgrown with time and the plant life
needs to be reduced to a point where at least 1/3 of the pond is
open water. I have just completed that task in a very small pond
and was rewarded with the sight of a pair of mallard ducks taking
stock of the accommodations!
So much good stuf in life is free and it seems to me that the
major benefts of hands on gardening are the pure joy of hearing
the birds sing and watching plant life come into bloom. Celebrate
the good stuf! 805

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
where we came from,” then the old man would say, “Enter, for

Our government is committed to
safer streets and communities and
we are putting the rights of victims
frst. To support victims of crime, our
government is introducing legislation
that will hold criminals accountable
for the crimes they commit and
provide justice for all victims.
On Tuesday, April 24
th
, our
government introduced an act to amend the Criminal Code
that would see convicted ofenders held more accountable to
victims of crime by doubling the victim surcharge they must pay
following their crime. By doing so, our government is helping
to provide the support victims of crime need to move forward
following such an experience.
On April 20
th
, our government introduced the Federal Income
Support for Parents of Murdered or Missing Children to help
families cope with the death or disappearance of a child. With
the introduction of this support beneft, parents can take of
the time they need following such a tragic event. Te support
is a beneft of up to 35 weeks to help ease the fnancial difculty
parents must deal with.
Our government will stand with victims of crime and all
Canadians through our commitment to ensuring that our streets
and communities are safe. We will continue to take signifcant
steps towards holding criminals accountable and delivering
justice for victims. We were elected on that commitment and we
will deliver. 226

E NEWS
We recently sent out our very frst e-newsletter. Tis is something
we have talked about for some time and although the frst issue
was quite time consuming the response has been positive, with
several of our customers even taking the time to email us to tell
us so. It is our hope that our advertising customers will fnd it a
useful resource full of all kinds of tips and information, much as
we hope these community magazines provide our readers with
a whole community of interesting and useful news and events.
I sometimes think of just 12 years ago when Mike and I frst
began Ossekeag Publishing. We took on an ofce with just three
computers, two for creating the publications and one which was
hooked up the internet. Most of our editorial came in as hard
copy and had to be typed. Ad copy was a hand drawn sketch or
occasionally (from companies with a national presence) an “ad
mat” that could be scanned. Very little came to us via email.
My six year old grand-daughter is always fascinated by how
little connection to the bigger world Nana and Grumpy had as
kids. I was her age when our family got our frst television, with
all of one channel and a GREAT test pattern for large parts of
the 24-hour day. Interestingly, though, yesterday we watched
some of those same cartoons that I saw as a kid . . . thanks to
YouTube. Tom & Jerry and Sylvester & Tweety were both big
hits. She laughed . . . and then went back a bit to rewatch the
funniest section again. Not only was that impossible when I
saw them, I also watched them in black and white, a concept
completely foreign to her. She is amazed that there was no Dora,
no Treehouse and no Barbie.
Progress has lots of good in it, but not all change is positive. “Te
test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance
of those who have much it is whether we provide enough for those
who have little.” ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt. 801
