19:00 About Last Night at Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at 7:00 »Tonight at City Cinema
Only 3 days left to see this film.

Rated: 14 Accompaniment (Sexual Content, Coarse Language)
Runs: 98 minutes
Director: Steve Pink
Country: US
Released: 2014
Starring: Kevin Hart, Michael Ealy, Regina Hall, Joy Bryant

“Broader, cruder and raunchier than the original. What is surprising it that's also much, much funnier... this version scores enough rude laughs to satisfy men as well as their dates” - Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter. “Sexy, witty and romantic, About Last Night is a remake of the 1986 film adapted from David Mamet’s play Sexual Perversity in Chicago... This one has a lot more steam in its dialogue. Danny and Debbie have a one-night stand that results in a ‘friends with benefits’ situation in which neither admits to having feelings for the other. In turn, their friends, Bernie and Joan, have a screaming, sometimes-drunken, intense relationship with fireworks. This is always contrasted with the more gentle flame that burns for Danny and Debbie. Bernie and Joan provide most of the laugh-out-loud comedy because they’re so outrageous... Early and Bryant have a wonderful chemistry. Hall and Hart are delightful as the loud, hard-drinking, motor-mouthed couple whose patter is so snappy and profane that you might miss out on some jokes along the way because you’ll be laughing so hard... Sophisticated, with a terrific ensemble, About Last Night is worth revisiting.” - Linda Cook, Quad City Times

05:20 Construction on schedule at Souris K-12 school »Eastern Graphic weekly newspaper
Story by: 
Luke Arbuckle

Despite earlier concerns that construction at the new Souris K-12 school might fall behind schedule, students at both Souris Consolidated and Souris High School will be out three weeks early this year to keep construction of the new K-12 school on schedule.

Tyler Richardson, manager of building design and construction with the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal, said earlier this year, the department was concerned the school might be falling behind schedule.

“In January and February, we were concerned that we were just finally getting the third floor for the K-6 wing enclosed, but we’ve made up some of the time and we’re right on schedule now,” Mr Richardson said.

“But, we’re making up time now and there is some great progress being made. I’d say that we’re right on schedule with the school’s construction.”

05:20 Extreme fee increases for access to mail »Eastern Graphic weekly newspaper
Story by: 
Angus McPhail

A Rollo Bay resident who has to pay for mail delivery is noticing that her fees are greatly increasing with no significant increase in service.

Anne McPhee operates a rental business out of Souris.

She requires mail delivery, as some residents in her units have their rent paid for by government programs like social assistance. These methods of payment only come through post delivery and are not made online.

However, due to snow build-up during the winter at her residence in Rollo Bay, she cannot keep a rural route delivery year round as her mailbox is often covered with snow or even destroyed accidentally by passing plows.

As such, she keeps a Post Office box at the Souris Post Office, but she has noticed her fees have increased with no increase in service.

Ms McPhee has been paying for her post office box since 2001. At that time, she paid $60 a year.

“This year by bill was $171,” she said.

05:20 MRHS springs second leak this year »Eastern Graphic weekly newspaper
Story by: 
Luke Arbuckle

Damage was done to the Montague Regional High School again when a drain pipe came apart earlier this month.

John Cummings, director of corporate services with the English Language School Board, said the leak resulted in minor repairs needing to be done.

“We did have another incident where we had a drain pipe come apart at the joint in the ceiling cavity over the staff room of the high school,” he said.

“We did have water come into the staff room. It impacted that area and the classroom below was impacted as well.”

Mr Cummings said the leak was repaired and work began to repair the damage done to the rooms.

“I believe there is still a little bit of minor work to be done in the staff room, they did have to do some work around the base of the Gyprock, but I’m not entirely sure if that’s completed or not yet,” Mr Cummings said.

“If it’s not, it should be very shortly.”

05:20 Residents blame government changes to MacLure’s Dam for basement flooding »Eastern Graphic weekly newspaper
Story by: 
Angus McPhail

Some Murray River residents are having their basements flooded and are blaming recent government changes to MacLure’s Dam.

Bud Lowe is a 70-year-old resident of Murray River. He said the changes by the government implemented to MacLure’s Dam have caused water levels to rise too high and nobody is able to control the flow of the dam.

Mr Lowe said he and other concerned residents want to know who has control of the water levels in the dam. Without a sump pump, his basement would completely flood.

“I’ve never seen it this bad,” he said, referring to the water levels.

Mr Lowe said he has contacted people in municipal, provincial, and federal governments, but no one seems to be able to tell him who is in charge of making sure the water levels in the dam do not reach levels that are too high.

“That’s the idea of a dam, to lower and raise the water flow.”

Mr Spin had been away while recovering from a heart attack he suffered in February.

“But honestly, I do want to thank the council and the citizens of Montague for their love and support. On behalf of myself and my family, I want to say thank you.”

After Mr Spin’s welcome back, council set to the issues at hand.

05:10 ADAPT board holds retreat to discuss future »Island Farmer publication
Story by: 
Andy Walker

As this issue went to press, members of the board of directors of the PEI ADAPT Council were holding a retreat to plan the future of the organization.
Since 1997, the council had been delivering federal programs aimed at helping the agriculture industry adapt to new challenges through a series of five year funding agreements. The last of that funding, the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program, expired at the end of March.
“We are still in existence but we are not sure just what happens next,” said Executive Director Phil Ferraro. “We hope to be able to make an announcement in May.”
The council, one of 14 similar organizations across the country, received the news in the 2012-2013 budget, that the program funding was ending. For a while, it looked like the council was going to morph into a new agency called PEI FarmWorks.

05:10 Agriculture Committee wants moratorium to stay in place »Island Farmer publication
Story by: 
Andy Walker

Keep the moratorium on deep water wells in place – at least for now.
That was the recommendation the Standing Committee on Agriculture, Environment, Energy and Forestry had for their fellow MLA’s when Chair Paula Biggar tabled its report in the legislature. The committee spent more than a month hearing from groups and individuals on both sides of the issue.
Lifting the moratorium, which has been in place since 2002, has been a hot topic in the province since last summer, when PEI Potato Board Chair Gary Linkletter called on government to lift the ban following two dry summers. There were rumours the ban was to be lifted in December, setting off a flurry of letters to the editor against the ban. The Potato Board responded with a public relations campaign of its own.

05:10 Blueberry growers optimistic as coming season looms »Island Farmer publication
Story by: 
Andy Walker

As they wait for the last of the snow to melt, blueberry growers in the province were decidedly upbeat when they gathered in Cornwall recently for the annual meeting of the PEI Wild Blueberry Growers Association.
There was a record harvest in 2013 and prices were relative good. Association President Dave MacNearney also noted Wyman’s Canada (the major processor in the province) is now in the midst of a major expansion to its capacity. He said that obviously shows the company (which has its head office in Maine), has confidence in the long term future of the Island industry.
The snow cover provided by the worst winter in over 40 years has growers optimistic there will be little in the way of winter plant loss. MacNearney said many growers made significant improvements to their production practices over the last decade, and that is one of the reasons for the increased yield.

05:10 Cavendish growers agree to price cut while seed growers face added costs »Island Farmer publication
Story by: 
Andy Walker

With the 2014 growing season just around the corner, there have been significant changes that will impact the bottom line of both processing and seed growers.
Producers who grow for Cavendish Farms have approved a deal which sees a 3.3 per cent reduction in the base price. Potato Board General Manager Greg Donald  noted there are also some differences in the contract language and the actual financial impact will vary from producer to producer.  While nobody obviously likes a decrease, Donald said growers had been expecting a tough round of negotiations. An increase in production volumes, coupled with less than expected market growth, has resulted in significant reduction in volumes throughout North America.

05:00 A game of “What If” »Island Farmer publication
Story by: 
Ian Petrie

Montreal Expos fans (guilty) have been playing a little “what if” recently. It’s been 20 years since a group of players that had slowly developed over two years under the patient guidance of manager Felipe Alou became the best team in baseball.
This dream season ended in mid August, 1994, when bitterness between team owners and players over collusion and a salary cap, led to a strike that went on until the following year, wiping out the World Series. Ten years later, the Expos were gone to Washington.

05:00 Farm Price Index down »Island Farmer publication

The Farm Product Price Index (FPPI) was down 7.3% in December from December 2012, mainly because of lower crop prices.
This was the fifth consecutive year-over-year decrease, as the decline in the crops index continued to exceed the gain in the overall livestock and animal products index.
The crops index was down 15.5% in December compared with December 2012. The drop in crop prices began in August 2013, following a growth trend that had started in September 2010. The largest decreases were recorded in grains (-25.5%), oilseeds (-13.9%) and fruit (-22.7%). Grain and oilseed prices came under pressure as the United States and world production recovered while Canada harvested record breaking crops for many of the major grains and oilseeds in the fall of 2013.
Apples, Canada's largest fruit crop, returned to more normal production and price levels in 2013, following a 30.6% drop in production in 2012.

05:00 Jim Flaherty, a warrior of words »Eastern Graphic weekly newspaper

“May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.”
....Old Irish Blessing

Well boyos, today’s the day they bury Jimmy Flaherty, with a state funeral for the burial no less: all pomp and circumstance and just the third time such an honour is bestowed in Canada, beyond a narrow list of governors - general, sitting cabinet ministers and past Prime Ministers.

There wasn’t a whole lot of him in a physical sense. He was vertically challenged at five foot three inches in socks and shoes, something he often poked fun at, while others made jest at the often godawful green neckties he sported.

05:00 Livestock estimates down in 2014 »Island Farmer publication

Canadian farmers reported 12.2 million cattle on their farms as of January 1, down 0.7% from January 1, 2013. Hog producers reported 12.7 million hogs, a 1.1% increase over January 1, 2013, while the number of sheep fell 1.0% to 893,000 head.
Overall, cattle prices rose and feed costs declined in the second half of 2013. However, this did not translate into farmers increasing their herd. The 0.7% decline reported on January 1 offset the modest gains observed on the same date in each of the previous two years. Cattle inventories have been stable recently following several years of steady decline. The cattle herd at January 1 sat 18.2% below its peak level seen on January 1, 2005.

“The three short videos highlight key mechanisms in Bill C-18 that increase the power and control of large breeders and severely restrict farmers’ autonomy and Canadian food sovereignty,” explained BC farmer and NFU Youth President, Alex Fletcher. ”These videos feature fellow NFU farmers and seed experts speaking from the heart, from experience and from their extensive knowledge about this issue.”

05:00 No health concerns found in foods tested for Acrylamide »Island Farmer publication

As part of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's (CFIA) routine testing of various food products, a study released recently did not find acrylamide in any samples of high carbohydrate foods at levels that would be considered unsafe for consumption.
The CFIA tested a total of 897 high carbohydrate food samples such as dried fruits and vegetables, crackers, condiments, soup powder, taco seasonings, molasses, syrups, and nut butters. The samples were collected from Canadian retail stores.
Acrylamide is an industrial chemical produced for a variety of uses such as water treatment, and the production of glue, paper and cosmetics. It may also be formed naturally, but unintentionally, in high carbohydrate foods which are cooked or processed at high temperatures (e.g., fried, baked, toasted, grilled and roasted).

Agriculture Critic Colin LaVie is urging his fellow MLA’s to support the declaration of the United Nations making 2014 the International Year of the Family Farm. He noted the 2011 census listed 1,500 farms primarily engaged in growing crops and raising livestock in the province.
LaVie wants the legislature to “show our support for our family farms, which have been the mainstay of this province’s economic growth and our rural Island communities, and join with nations all across the world in acknowledging the important role that family farms play in ensuring food security for our populations now and into the future.”

Everyone knows that the tried and true way to get in better shape is it eat right and exercise. Sounds simple enough but a huge percentage of people who attempt it do not get the results desired because they abandon their efforts. This frequently happens because of mistakes made in the way they go about it.
Like everything else, best results come from having a plan. Here are some tips on how to finally get those results you have been after.
First off, educate yourself. If you know what works and what does not you will be more apt to succeed. Take some time to learn what exercises will give you the results you want, how to properly execute them, how often and how long to train etc. By having this knowledge when you start you will be less likely to make mistakes that will hinder your progress. It pays to work hard at your exercise program but it is so much more efficient when you also work smart.

04:15 Prime real estate »West Prince Graphic weekly newspaper

By Zack Metcalfe
With all due respect to municipal policy, I think restrictions on the size and shape of houses are a little foolish. Building for safety makes good sense, but condemning a home’s design for the sake of appearance is silly. For example!
A passive solar house is a structure built on a slope, with the roof beginning on ground level and inclining until it reaches the crest of the building. The open side of the house is all glass facing south. This unusual shape allows the building to absorb sunlight like crazy, to the point that indoor heating becomes redundant. I’ve been in such a home on a cold November day; there wasn’t so much as a log on the fire and I was almost sweating.
From what I understand, a series of bylaws make passive solar homes near impossible on the Island; its only crime is facing the sun, rather than the road.

04:15 Water, water everywhere »West Prince Graphic weekly newspaper

With rising temperatures, the mountains of snow have been decreasing by the minute. Puddles vary from the size of a basketball to the size of a small lake. Residents inside community limits are battling with the direction of the melting snow, while others are comparing notes and amounts of infiltrated water in their basements.
Some are lucky and water has not found its way in their homes, while others are not so lucky. Whether their basement is finished or not, water has leaked in to cause havoc.
One thing that has been questioned throughout every community and rural area by concerned residents; who’s responsibility is it to redirect melting water flows?
One can drive down any rural road and homeowners are spotted everywhere, digging out their backed up ditches in hopes of solving a never ending spring issue. Some homeowners are convinced this spring is the worse they have ever seen for water infiltration problems.
