and activities. We forget how simple it can be to put a smile on someone else’s face. It’s a random act of kindness, laughing at yourself over a silly mistake, sharing a story with a senior who might be alone at the holidays, or helping out a local shelter to serve up a holiday meal. We need to take advantage of the season to show the next generation what is really important – it’s not the things you have, it’s the people in your life that matter. It’s the season for giving and time costs you nothing.

Recently, a $500 ‘Lily Pad’ went missing from my son’s dock on the Fenelon River just below the Falls. I purchased this ‘lily pad’ as a birthday gift for my five great-grandchildren in order for them to have a safer, fun place to swim and play in the water. Later, my son located it further downstream at a private dock. (He had markings on it that indicated his ownership.) When confronted with the knowledge it belonged to us, the lady said ‘she had purchased it herself’. At that point, a small boy standing beside her piped up and stated, “We didn’t steal it”! Clearly you did! I believe this to be a very poor way of teaching children honesty and respect for others’ property! And a hugely poor example for my grandchildren and great-grandchildren, while being deprived of their fun this summer. There is probably nothing anyone can do about this now, but if this lily pad could mysteriously be returned to our dock next summer, we would ignore this theft, no questions asked, and the issue would be forgotten! Thank you for listening. Joan Hughes Bobcaygeon

Proposed Capital Tax Increase By Pat Warren

City of Kawartha Lakes residents are facing a 3.5 percent capital tax increase in 2018. After starting with a capital tax increase of 4.5 percent in initial budget discussions, staff presented the proposed 2018 Tax-Supported Capital Budget, coming in at just over $35.6 million, at a recent Special Council meeting. Several factors resulted in this saving for taxpayers: a lower-than-anticipated OPP budget; the 100 percent funding of Ontario Works thanks to the province; and lower hydro costs for social housing. Prior to deliberations, the City reported that they have more than $3.2 billion in assets. These include $2.3 billion in infrastructure, road, and bridges; $305 million in facilities; $413 million in natural resources; and $103 million in equipment. This figure does not include social housing. These amounts show that the City is unique and infrastructure-intense due to the size of the municipality. Staff presented a roadmap on how the City can achieve and maintain long-term financial sustainability. To tackle the challenges, the City debentured $25 million over 10 years. Also, there will be $9 million more spent on capital in 2018 than 2017 and more money put into reserves, helping to close the gap in infrastructure needs going forward. Some of the highlights for 2018: over $20 million in roads and bridges including a multi-year gravel

Bobcaygeon and Lindsay. The project would have saved about $65,000 a year but the cost was estimated to be $1.4 million over two years. They argued the payback was too long and that technology would have changed in the meantime. Every year Councillor Stephen Strangway asks staff about the financial sustainability of the 21 water plants and 6 wastewater plants and is told that the systems are not sustainable. However, according to staff, the systems will become sustainable in 2018. Due to a multi-year grant from the federal and provincial governments and other cost saving measures, water and wastewater systems will no longer show an infrastructure deficit. Mayor Andy Letham commented, “I’m thrilled that we’ve turned the corner on our water and wastewater

budget. We are now spending what we need to maintain and upgrade our systems, and with the support from other levels of government, we can look forward to lower user rate increases. Going into the operating budget, we’ve already reduced our projected user rate increase for 2018 from 4 percent to 3 percent and we’ll finalize the numbers next month.” Council will deliberate the 2018 Operating Budget (including the Tax-Supported Operating Budget and the Water and Wastewater Operating Budget) on December 13 at 9am in Council Chambers, and on December 14 at 9am if required. All are welcome to attend and provide comment. Operating Budget documents will be posted at

Bass Lake residents living near the public beach and lake access point are ‘dropping the gloves’ because they’re fighting mad. They say that in the past two years, ‘weekend warriors’ on off-road vehicles like ATVs and dirt bikes have overwhelmed the neighbourhood with bad behaviour. At the November 7 meeting of Trent Lakes Council, Bass Lake resident Heather Iviney offered Council a long list of concerns: • Excessive speed and noise from motorized off-road vehicles • Driving vehicles into Bass Lake and getting stuck (bogging) • Stealing from nearby properties to find supplies or coming, in distress, looking for assistance from residents to rescue vehicles • Washing off-road vehicles in the lake with soap or ‘bogging’ • Running vehicles on property shorelines and confronting residents in violent situations when they

BAD NEWS/GOOD NEWS The Measure of a Hero

Everybody needs a hero. Especially in this day and age when there’s threat of nuclear war, chemical war, mass shootings and catastrophic weather and more. But what is the real measure of a hero? Are we looking in the wrong place? The news headlines and social media might tell the story. On November 6, a police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty in Abbotsford, British Columbia. Constable John Davidson died in an exchange of gunfire with a suspect who had allegedly stolen a vehicle. Chief Bob Rich of the Abbotsford Police Department said officers were called about a possible stolen vehicle in the parking lot of a shopping complex at 11:30am. The caller blocked in the suspect’s vehicle while waiting for police to arrive but the suspect began shooting. Rich told the media that the Abbotsford police service trains officers that when somebody is putting people’s lives in danger and there’s an active shooter they no longer wait for cover, the first officer goes in. John Davidson was the first person in. He didn’t come out. “He died protecting you and me,” Rich said. The Abbotsford Police Department described Davidson as an “amazing colleague and friend” and “a dedicated police officer.” A hero! Davidson leaves behind his wife and three children. On November 7, baseball player Roy Halladay died in a plane crash off the coast of Florida. Halladay was a

By Pamela VanMeer, Kawartha411 pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays for many years and won the prestigious Cy Young Award twice. By all accounts Halladay was one of the good guys. Friends and colleagues have described the 40-year-old as an all-round, all-star. “All-Star pitcher, All-Star person, AllStar father and family man,” Philadelphia Phillies chairman David Montgomery said at a news conference. News of Constable Davidson’s death came late Monday night. Halladay died on Tuesday. The lead story on a newscast at 5:30 was the death of Halladay. The death of Officer Davidson was almost 10 minutes into the news. Constable Davidson gave his life to save others. His death, in my opinion should have led the news. The good news is, if we take a closer look, we might have more heroes than we think. The definition of a hero is a person noted for courageous acts or nobility of character. Constable Davidson definitely fit into that category with his courageous acts. But Halladay did as well, just in a different way. He worked with the Make A Wish Foundation to help sick kids forget their circumstances for a while. Nobility of character. After taking some time to examine the issue, I think both are heroes in their own right. I just wish they could both could have gotten the same respect, outpouring of love and support, on social media and in the news. You can find more local news and reports on

November 17 to 30 Melodie McCullough

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Encouragement is important! When you encourage someone, you give them hope – and, as we all know, hope uplifts and inspires imagination which, in turn, leads to action. So, Aquarius, think about sharing some reassuring words with someone today. Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) Money matters may try to overtake your thoughts during this phase, Pisces. Don’t let them! Worrying will not work, nor will procrastination. Meet your obligations head on. Aries (March 21 to April 20) It is tempting to judge others, isn’t it Aries? It tends to make us feel superior. But – beware. Very often we do not know the whole story about a person’s life and circumstances. And, the tables could easily turn on you, and you, too, could be thought of harshly. Be careful what you say (and think) about others. Taurus (April 21 to May 21) Take a chance on love, dear Taurus. Now is not the time for reservations or secondguesses. Yes, there are risks – you may be hurt. But grief is often the price of love, and love is so very often worth it. Gemini (May 22 to June 22) Have you been dreaming, Gemini? Dreaming of that next big step? Dreaming of a better you? We are telling you now - the time has come to take those dreams and make them a reality. Fear not – you can do it! Cancer (June 23 to July 23) Sometimes friends can be foolhardy, and do silly things that get them into trouble. Don’t get pulled into their shenanigans, Cancer! Step aside,

let them pass, and then carry on walking your own path. Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) “Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.”: Laura Ingalls Wilder. Put down your cell phone, turn off your TV, head outdoors and take a walk on the wild side, Leo! These fresh November days are perfect for doing just that. Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) It’s good to establish goals and work towards them – but, don’t forget to take some detours along the way, Virgo. That’s what makes life interesting, and, often, leads to new goals and possibilities. Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) Libra, we urge you to get involved! Don’t sit back and wait for life to happen. Join a book club, a social group, a political rally, a sports team, a nature walk – whatever strikes your fancy. The important thing is to get out and enjoy yourself and others. Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Humour is a great communicator, Scorpio. It can lighten a load and open up new conversations, and new ways of looking at the world. Don’t be afraid to laugh, share a funny moment, or tell a good joke! Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) We sense you are feeling lonely, dear Sag, and possibly misunderstood. Rise to the occasion! Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about yourself – and definitely know that many people, while not by your side physically, are thinking of you all the time! Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) You are feeling overwhelmed, and there is tension in your life, Capricorn. This is not good for your health, as you well know. You MUST address this. You know what you have to do – so do it now.

It’s Easy Being Green Big Green Goodbye

By Julia Taylor Have you ever heard the expression

“You are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with?” Well, I have been at home for over five years, spending 90 percent of my time with my two kids under five. Because of this, I’m starting to get a little tantrum-ee, and sometimes I feel like throwing my food. Needless to say, I’m ready to get out of the house and get back to work. I’m ready to put my energy and passion into a career and in order to do so; sadly I must give up some of my volunteer obligations -- one being this column. I have enjoyed being an advocate for our precious natural environment in Kawartha Lakes and beyond through this column. Thank you for your ear, your complimentary letters, and every person who has approached me to tell me that they started to ... (insert small eco-friendly action that has big impact on our environment). I’ve even enjoyed peoples’ comments that I had “made their lives harder because their partner now makes them do ‘xyz’ because that’s ‘what Julia said.’” It has made it worth every last letter typed for this column. I will most definitely still be working on initiatives for our environment in our community

and I hope you will join me. Have no doubt that every decision you make in favour of the earth has a big impact and a ripple effect, and I appreciate every green action you take! Thank you so much for reading for the last couple of years, and thanks to The Kawartha Promoter for printing my articles! Best, and green regards to The Kawartha Promoter and our community!

By Kirk Winter

It is hard to believe that in one of the wealthiest nations in the world people are going hungry on a daily basis. According to Global News, in 2014, almost 14 million visits were made to food banks across Canada. In that same year, almost a million individual Canadians reported having to utilize food banks on a monthly basis. And of that million, almost 400,000 were children under the age of 18. In the City of Kawartha Lakes, we are fortunate that a small army of dedicated volunteers has taken it upon themselves to ensure that local food banks are stocked and open for those in need. Kawartha Lakes Food Source, located in Lindsay, is a 4,000-square foot food distribution centre that stocks goods for its nine member food banks and assists, as it can, the many other charitably run food banks right across the City. KLFS also supports 21 different elementary and secondary schools in running their vitally important breakfast programs. The Food Source, through its member agencies, also supplies its clients with pet food, personal care items, baby food and diapers, household cleaning products and toilet paper. The food banks partnered with the KLFS feed over 1,000 people a month, and that number swells to more than 5,000 a month when children fed through school

79 Bolton St. Unit D, Bobcaygeon 705 738-3598 Consciously Crafted in the Kawartha Lakes

breakfast programs are included. While affiliated with the Food Source, some smaller food banks also stock their shelves through the generosity of the local community. Cash donations, grants, fundraisers, food drives and church contributions help keep the doors open and the food distributed. Food bank clients are very often stereotyped, and not in a good way. You may be surprised to learn that the bulk of food bank clients are middle-aged couples or seniors who, after paying for rent, utilities, and transportation do not have enough money left over to put food on the table. In our area, demand falls in the summer when work is more plentiful, but spikes in the winter months after the tourists go home. The upcoming Christmas season puts a real strain on the local food banks as they try to provide something special for all of their clients. The KLFS is looking for the community’s assistance over the next two to four weeks to make this Christmas season a happy one for all their clients. Donations of food, money and in the case of Bobcaygeon Helps, children’s toys, would be much appreciated. In this holiday season, let us not forget those in need. Please support your local food banks. Give, and give generously. It will be a gift much appreciated.


Like Santa’s elves, the volunteers at the Bobcaygeon Helps Food Bank are busier than ever at this time of year. They’re getting ready for their Christmas Program, when they will share the spirit of the season with those in our community who require support. On a regular basis, the Food Bank helps about 130 households meet their basic caloric and nutritional needs. These include 215 adults and 125 children. Through the generous support of the community, everyone will be able to enjoy a Christmas dinner and

children under the age of 16 will find toys under the tree and treats in their stocking. Boxes for toy donations are already in place in many businesses in the Village. Financial donations are used to buy gift cards for food given to each family to allow them to plan their own Christmas dinner menu. On December 13, it all comes together. The cards are distributed and parents are invited to the “Santa Shop” to choose that special gift. It’s an emotional day filled with joy and gratitude. If you would like to donate a toy for a child, please drop it off, unwrapped, in a donation box. You can also send a financial donation by mail to Bobcaygeon Helps, Box 133, Bobcaygeon; use PayPal on the organization’s website; or drop by the Food Bank at Christ Anglican Church on the corner of Park and Sherwood on Wednesdays between 9:30 and 11am. Charitable Tax Receipts will be issued for donations of $10 or more. It doesn’t take much to spread a little cheer to make someone else’s Christmas special. The Bobcaygeon Helps Food Bank Board, officers, volunteers and, most importantly, their clients thank you for your ongoing support and generosity.

lets talk about your insurance sponsored by

Stewart Morrison Insurance

Winter is Coming... As temperatures drop below the freezing mark, our attention should be directed toward prepping our homes to weather the winter as best as possible. Insurance claims will indicate that special attention should be paid to your houses plumbing; both inside and outside your home. To protect your pipes, and prevent the likelihood of them freezing, follow these easy steps: 1. Inspect your pipes, or have a professional inspect them to ensure they are properly insulated 2. Have all seals checked. Seal leaks can lead to cold air getting in your popes and freezing the water 3. As part of your final fall chores, turn off outside taps and disconnect out door hoses 4. Install frost free faucets (Hose Bibbs) for supplying water to the front and back yards. If installed correctly they can prevent pipes from freezing and also prevent water damage 5. Install water shut-off alarms that shut off the water supply if a leak is detected 6. Drain all pipes if you are going to be away for an extended period of time (more than four days consecutively) For more great tips on how to protect yourself and your home all winter long, visit, or like us on Facebook. We are always here for you! If you have questions, we have answers. Call, click or visit one of our 6 locations.

A Whole Day Of Santa Before the hustle and bustle of his busiest season, Santa’s going to make a quick stop in Fenelon Falls on Saturday, November 25.

Santa’s Coming To Lindsay The special magic that is Christmas returns to the heart of the Kawartha Lakes on Sunday, November 19 with Lindsay’s 62nd annual Santa Claus parade. The parade, which showcases more than 50 registered floats and bands kicks off at 2pm at the Recreation Complex on Adelaide Street South. It will travel north on Adelaide to Kent Street, then east on Kent Street to Lindsay Street. The 2017 Lindsay Santa Claus Parade is honoured to be chosen as a recipient of the Canada 150th Celebration Grant through the City of Kawartha Lakes Community Partnership and Development Fund Program”. This funding has allowed them to bring an exciting new addition to the parade -- the MaracaTALL Stilt Drumming Troupe. Maracatall is a high-energy, high impact, multi-arts, stilt-walking drum core that can be seen and heard over 100 metres away. The parade will also include the Shriner’s MiniFire Trucks, an airplane from the Kawartha Lakes Municipal Airport, and all bands that participated last year. As always, Santa Claus closes out the parade. Don’t forget to bring along non-perishable food

The Bobcaygeon Kinette Club just held their November meeting at the Lion’s Hall. The Deputy Governor for our Zone was visiting the club that evening bringing us lots of news. The Kinettes are very busy at this time of the year preparing for their Christmas events. Don’t forget the Kinette Friendship Dinner on December 5 at the Legion. Time for dinner is 6pm.

A few weeks ago, we reported about a group of women in Lindsay, the 100 Women Who Care, and one of their fundraising events. Not to be outdone, John Richardson sent in this item. An information session will be held for the new 100 Men Kawartha Lakes at 7pm on Tuesday, November

28 at Boston Pizza in Lindsay. The organization will officially start in March of 2018. 100 Men Who care is a non-profit organization that will meet four times a year. They’ll hear three 15-minute talks from local charities. The members will vote on which charity to support and each member will write a cheque for $100 to the charity with the most votes at the meeting. This means if we have 100 members then the local charity will get $10,000. You can find out more at

I enjoy meeting young people who are doing cool things. When Olivia Phillips came in to see me, I was struck by her poise and enthusiasm. Olivia has used her passion and obvious talent for art to illustrate the latest children’s book by author Janet Stobie. Elizabeth Gets Her Wings is the story of a young angel who earns her wings in a unique way. Janet’s words, with Olivia’s watercolour-inspired illustrations, is a delightful Christmas story. Olivia has a stall at the Bobcaygeon Farmers’ Market during the summer season, selling her artwork. She’ll be at several area craft shows with her art and copies of the book for sale, just in time for the holidays. From 10am to 2pm on Saturday, November 18 you can find her at the Dunsford Community Centre’s craft sale; on December 2 at the Lindsay Armouries. The book is also available through Olivia graduated from Guelph University with a Psychology major, but is now delighted to share her love of art with children through this book.

It will be another “night to remember” when the third annual Handbags for Hospice Charity Auction takes place early in the new year. The fundraising event in support of the Community Care Health & Care Network’s Hospice Services takes place Friday, January 26, 2018 in the ballroom at the Admiral Inn in Lindsay. In just two years, Handbags for Hospice has become a signature event for the Community Care Foundation and Hospice Services. The event is organized by a committee of dedicated volunteers, including returning chairperson Robyn McNabb. Last year’s event raised more than $37,000 towards Hospice Grief Support Services. A portion of the funds – just over $9,000 - went to the Kids and Teens Grief Support programs, enabling hospice to respond to the unique challenges of grief at different ages. Tickets to Handbags for Hospice are $50 and


If you take antidepressant medication in the class of drugs known as “selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors” (SSRIs) and experience tinnitus (ringing in the ears), you should know that your medication might be making your tinnitus worse. The irony of this link between SSRIs and worsening tinnitus is that previous research indicates that people with tinnitus are at increased risk of developing depression, in which case SSRIs may be prescribed. The link between the antidepressants and ringing in the ears may have to do with the fact that cells in the dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN), which is the region of the brain involved in sensory processing and affected by tinnitus, become hypersensitive to sound with exposure to serotonin. One of the most important services we provide at our clinic is helping our patients comprehend their hearing aids and become aware of the products available to help improve their quality of living. We are committed to serving the needs of the hearing impaired. Can we help you? Let’s start with a hearing consultation and test. Then we’ll show you the amazing, revolutionary hearing aids available today. P.S. To avoid any possible vicious circle between SSRIs and tinnitus, it may be best to treat tinnitus with a hearing aid or masking device.

include a complimentary glass of wine, hors d’oeuvres and entry into a draw for a designer handbag. The event will begin at 7pm on January 26 (doors open at 6:30). Tickets are available at the following local merchants: Cathy Allan Ladieswear (98 Kent St. W., Lindsay), Hamilton Creek (112 Kent St. W. Lindsay) Bigley Shoes & Clothing (Bolton Street, Bobcaygeon), and The Kawartha Store (30 Colborne St., Fenelon Falls). They are also available at Hospice offices (2 Kent St. W., Lindsay), and online at www.


Don’t let the flu get to you. With colder weather on the way, get a dose of protection instead in the form of a free flu shot. Annual flu shots are now available free-of-charge in Haliburton County, Northumberland County and the City of Kawartha Lakes. The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit encourages anyone six months of age and older to get the flu vaccine this fall, either through their health care provider, local pharmacies or at special Health Unit clinics for children under age five. “The flu shot is safe and effective, and reduces your risk of getting sick from influenza. Even if you get the flu after receiving the flu shot, your illness is usually milder than if you had not been vaccinated,” says Marianne Rock, Manager of Communicable Disease Control, Epidemiology and Evaluation with the HKPR District Health Unit. “Getting the flu shot is

especially important for high-risk individuals who can suffer more severe health complications from the flu.” High-risk groups include: pregnant women, people with chronic health conditions, adults 65 years of age and older, children under five, and health care providers/support staff who can transmit’ flu to vulnerable patients and individuals. In Haliburton County, Northumberland County and the City of Kawartha Lakes, there are many ways to get a flu shot: • Speak to your doctor or health care provider to get flu vaccine. • Visit your local pharmacy to get a flu shot. Pharmacists can provide flu vaccine to anyone five years of age and older. • Book an appointment at special ‘family-friendly’ flu vaccine clinics being offered by the Health Unit for families with children under the age of five years. The clinic will be held in Lindsay on Wednesday, November 22 at the Health Unit office (108 Angeline St. S.)

across Canada. Community Care’s #GrieveNotAlone proposal is one of five finalists in its funding category. Aviva will announce the successful recipients in early December. Over the 10-day period in October, #GrieveNotAlone received more than 26,000 votes from supporters. The public vote to measure community support is one of the criteria to be used by Aviva to assess the funding proposals. Community Care’s Grief Support programs help people find their way through grief, while helping them live with renewed hope and happiness despite loss. The programs, offered through Community Care Hospice Services, are entirely unfunded. Support from fundraising and development initiatives is required to continue operating our programs at no cost to clients. The $87,000 proposal represents the annual cost for Community Care to present grief support. To read more about the Aviva competition and to review the proposal, visit Community Care’s website at
