Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have an off-leash dog park in Bobcaygeon with one side for smaller dogs and the other for the larger dogs? I go to such a place in Florida and take my two dogs almost every day while I’m there. It’s quite large ... probably an acre or more, the ground is covered with a deep layer of wood chips, and the entire area is fenced in. One of my dogs is blind and it’s a safe and fun environment for him to get exercise and be with other little dogs. The social life there for the dog owners is good too. I’ve made lots of new friends there. With Bobcaygeon being a retirement community, it would be an excellent way to exercise both your dogs and yourself, especially if your mobility is compromised at all.  I also believe that the summer residents would enjoy it as well. The park I go to in Naples has dozens and dozens of old tennis balls donated by one of the local tennis clubs -- ideal for throwing for the dogs. There are faucets for fresh water for the dogs and benches around the perimeter for people to use. Dog owners are fastidious about picking up after their dogs, and they provide the waste bags and bins there as well to make it easy to clean up.  Comments anyone?  I know lots of residents here will say, “use the money to fix the potholes” and it’s true ... they do need a LOT of fixing. But wouldn’t a dog park be a lovely addition to our beautiful town?  We would need to figure out the where and the how and the money to make it happen. M. Haughton Bobcaygeon


A big thank you to all who came to my aid in front of The Promoter building on Friday, March 31. I am happy to report that there were no broken bones, etc. However, I did have a good few days in bed with plenty of painkillers. The incident started by my not having a good grip on the railing as it was wet from the earlier rain. That landed me on my rear end; then when I tried to stand up, my vertigo kicked in and down I went for good. A very special thanks to the person who called 911, to the three individuals who kindly placed their blankets over me and, of course, the wonderful care I

received from the ambulance staff. I hope I never need that kind of help again; however, it sure is reassuring to know that there are still so many wonderful people out there. Thanks again.

In the April 7 edition of The Kawartha Promoter, Linda Evans suggested that a four-way stop is needed at the intersection of King and William Streets due to the “huge volume of traffic”. While one might wait a minute or so to cross King at times, I think a huge volume of traffic is quite rare. Please, we don’t need more stop signs in this village. They can result in time wasted, more fuel consumption and more air pollution when cars are forced to stop unnecessarily. If there is a safety concern, a crosswalk such as the one on Bolton would be more appropriate. Dave Kent Bobcaygeon


There are numerous residents, individuals & businesses in the town of Bobcaygeon who are very concerned about the number of trees that have been recently cut down/removed from the streets in Bobcaygeon. We have also noted that several others are marked for cutting! We feel that this is a very serious undertaking that Hydro has commenced in our town and are urgently requesting that this stop until all the information is available to us for open discussion.   • Regulations: per cutting/removal • Decision: who approved removals was there even a discussion? • Criteria: per tree removal • Environmental: impact/study performed? • Number of trees: total number to be removed • Property owners:  actual liability if they refuse cutting in writing prior to Hydro knocking on their door.   The City’s website states: “the protection, conservation, and enhancement of natural systems.”   Our trees need more respect before it is too late & so do the tourists, residents and businesses of Bobcaygeon!

Please advise if you [Mayor Andy Letham] are willing to meet the concerned residents/business owners/ constituents in your City as soon as possible. Donna Wood Bobcaygeon

Editor’s Note: We spoke with Nancy Clark at Hydro One about the tree cutting throughout Bobcaygeon. Over the next two months, Hydro One’s trained arborists will be undertaking “vegetation maintenance.” This is undertaken to ensure the safety of the hydro crews and the public, and to ensure that lines and equipment remain viable for distribution of power. Clark says they work with the property owners to discuss what needs to be done. She stressed that they make every attempt to only have to trim the trees but in some cases, it is safer to remove them. Falling trees and limbs account for more than 30 percent of power outages in the province. Hydro One’s ongoing commitment is to improve service to customers while meeting their environmental goals and reducing risk to their employees who repair the equipment

Update on Tommy Anderson Community Ice Rink Another amazing outdoor skating season was enjoyed by so many people of our community!! A special thank you goes out to Steve Blodgett who has taken the lead on overseeing and doing all the elements involved with taking care of the outdoor ice rink. The ice was up and running by Christmas this year, only to be lost in the freezing rain, rebuilt again until the last warm spell. Mother Nature sure plays havoc, but Steve endures. Like most community endeavors, it takes many hands to make things work. Additional thanks go out to Murray Junkin, Home Hardware, Jermyn Lumber, Parker McDonald, Fritz Mattern, Jeff Patterson, Dave (Iceman), Crazy Monkey, Wayne Shea, Steve Pillsworth, Blodgett Electric, Corey Marina, Samuel Blodgett and all others who pitched in. Most, thanks to all who used it. You make it all worthwhile. Ruth Pillsworth (Previous Rink Co-ordinator)

Community Foundation of Kawartha Lakes By Pat Warren

Emerald Ash Borer Plan By Pat Warren

With an estimated 24,000 ash trees in the City of Kawartha Lakes, the threat of the Emerald Ash Borer is a reality. Students and faculty from the Urban Forestry Course at Fleming College teamed up with city staff to develop a high-level plan to manage the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). The students presented information to Council about this pest. It was first seen in the Detroit area in 2002 and has gradually moved north. The EAB is very prolific and each female can produce up to 200 eggs with a 90% survival rate. This pest eats the nutrient rich area of the tree, causing the tree to die and dry out. That makes it more of a threat during windstorms and other weather-related events. During the presentation to Council, a 5-step plan was discussed by the students. The first phase would be public education not only in the identification of trees infected with the pest, but also to reduce the risk of spreading the disease to other areas. For instance, infected trees can be burned as firewood, chipped or re-purposed but wood should never be transported out of a local area. The price tag for removing all the ash trees in the City would be more than $3.1 million. A preventative proactive approach, however, would be less expensive. This could be done by removing any large, high-risk trees and by trimming others. The plan also showed it was better and less expensive to do the work by staff rather than contracting out. Councillor Elmslie said that he recently read that due to climate change, trees from other parts of the world might be appropriate for growing here. Fleming students and staff agreed and said it was important to test other species for resilience.

At the City of Kawartha Lakes Council meeting on Tuesday, April 11, the Community Foundation of Kawartha Lakes steering committee pitched Council on the idea of partnering on a Community Foundation. Committee representatives Mike Perry and Marlene Morrison-Nichols presented the benefits to the municipality of how the initiative would fill gaps, funding projects that otherwise may not happen. They also assured Council that the Community Foundation would not replace or compete with other foundations. The plan would leverage funds from the community to help complete projects in many areas such as the environment, arts, health, youth entrepreneurship, agriculture and even infrastructure. Helping the municipality complete projects by securing funding would improve the bottom line, thus lowering taxes. “It’s a paradigm shift and a game changer for municipal funding,” said Perry. There are 200 communities across the country, including Peterborough, that have started a Community Foundation with seed funding from their municipalities. Perry and Nichols asked COKL for $70,000 over three years, the same amount that Peterborough and others have started with. This has allowed these foundations to raise and leverage funding from major philanthropists, legacy giving and other donations. In just a few years, millions of dollars have been raised allowing completion of many community projects. Council made a motion to send the request to staff for a report back to Council.

Curve Lake First Nation requested that Trent Lakes and Selwyn Township councils pass resolutions supporting their historical right to harvest on Big (Chiminis) Island in Pigeon Lake. Mayor Bev Matthews of Trent Lakes suggested a meeting with the Big Island Management Advisory team on April 20 at 2:00 pm would be a good time to further pursue this request. Curve Lake First Nation council is seeking resolutions from area municipalities in support of their long awaited application for a community water system. Both Trent Lakes and Selwyn councils later passed resolutions to support the Curve Lake First Nation need for clean water. Peterborough Public Health and the Children’s Aid Society have also endorsed the application. It was suggested that the next Tri-Council meeting be held on Big Island. A traditional First Nations AGENT drumming ceremony and debris clean up were proposed.



prevention through developing social connections with community members and agencies. The Peterborough Risk Driven Situation Table was launched in 2016 and meets to address acute risk situations and their root causes. Each week, the OPP meet with a wide range of community agencies including mental health workers, school administrators, First Nation support groups, and hospital reps. Their success rate has been impressive. As crime rates continue to decline, police are seeking new roles for their services in our communities. There was a 13.94 percent decline in call volume to Trent Lakes alone when compared to the previous four years. Inspector Tatchell said that policing requires increased collaboration with community partners. He sees the central role of police as “helping people get into contact with the right social agency.” He was “quite proud” of the week-long Canadian Mental Health training OPP members undergo yearly to give them more skills. The OPP have also received funding for a full-time mental health worker to accompany them on calls. Co-ordinating with the Four Counties Crisis agency reduces repeat calls for service, which is a positive outcome. Tatchell talked about working with municipal works departments to improve road surfaces in areas that saw frequent collisions often due to slippery conditions when wet. Flashing warning lights have been installed in areas where there have been frequent vehicle collisions with deer. Peterborough County OPP have ‘one of the more active marine patrols in the Central region’. Marine patrols for Big Island in Pigeon Lake will be increased this summer with many more night patrols of the area. ‘Borderless policing’ is also an initiative that is working. OPP dispatchers now look to see which officers are closer to answer calls more promptly, whether they are from the City of Kawartha Lakes or Peterborough County OPP.

BAD NEWS/GOOD NEWS We are pleased to welcome a new regular contributor to The Kawartha Promoter! Pamela VanMeer, a respected journalist and president of Kawartha411 will provide her take on international and national news. She’ll offer up two sides to an issue -- it’s called Bad News/Good News for a reason. Are we losing our empathy? Imagine this. You are sitting on your couch reading a story to your 2-year old child. You’ve spent a perfect day outside playing and now, with their little rosy, chubby cheeks and wide eyes, it’s time for bed. Your heart is brimming with love for them.  Then, this idyllic scene comes to an abrupt and violent end as a bomb hits part of your house.  The sound was so loud your eardrums are ringing, you can barely see for the dust and debris. You hear a lot of screaming. You can’t find your kids and start to panic. Running through what remains of your house, you are stepping on nails and bricks, searching every corner looking for them. Then you spot ten, tiny toes sticking out from under the rubble. Frantically you dig at the debris and free your child, but it’s too late, they are gone.  This is the scene that plays out every day in Syria; it’s their reality. Since the civil war began in 2011, an estimated 400,000 Syrians have been killed, according to figures issued by the United Nations last year. Yet the rest of the world has stood by and let this happen for years. The leaders of powerful countries have been wringing their hands.  On April 4th, 2017 the Syrian government allegedly used Sarin gas on its own people. Thirty innocent children were among those who died a horrific death, hundreds more were wounded.  A few days after this, US President Donald Trump bombed Syria. He sent 59 cruise missiles in retaliation for the regime’s use of chemical weapons against its own people.   Some politicians and the general public at large have questioned this move and Trump’s motives. Some say we shouldn’t interfere. That it isn’t our problem. Why should we risk our own lives? I have a good reason … we are all human beings. There but for the grace of God go I. That’s why!  I’m not saying I agree with war or violence. But sometimes the world needs to act for the greater good, to keep other people’s children safe. Without empathy, our humanity is dead. While other world leaders were busy doing nothing, Canadians from coast to coast have been busy trying to help Syrian Refugees.  More than 35,000 Syrian refugees have arrived in Canada since November 2015.  The New Canadians Centre in Peterborough welcomed more than 30 Syrian refugee families by March 31, 2017. They match every new family with a volunteer support group to provide a welcome reception, social connections and activities, orientation to the community, assistance with childcare, transportation to appointments and assistance with finding permanent housing. Most of the people working with these families are volunteers. They are giving their time and showing empathy.   A second Syrian family is expected to arrive in Bobcaygeon later this month.  Maybe empathy is alive and well after all.

Our Syrian family, the Al Awads, have now survived their second winter in Canada and, like most of us, they are very much looking forward to spring and warmer weather. The entire Al Awad family continues to benefit from regular ESL sessions in their apartment delivered by a dedicated team of teachers. Yamama, the oldest of the Al Awad children, continues to thrive in her Junior Kindergarten class in Bobcaygeon and has become quite fluent in English. Her siblings Hadeel, Yaman and baby Mohammad are getting more accustomed to life in Bobcaygeon and have made every effort to enjoy the snow and outdoor activities during the past winter months with parents Mariam and Yousef. The exciting news is that the arrival of our second family is imminent. The Bobcaygeon Area Refugee Committee (BARC) has been working behind the scenes under the Family Link Program to bring Yousef’s sister, her husband and two young children here to Bobcaygeon. We are hoping that the Al Bashirs will be joining us in the next few weeks and we are anxiously awaiting news of their flight to Canada. The arrival of a second family means that BARC is looking for several additional volunteers to help in a number of areas. One pressing need will be for drivers to help with the many transportation needs that arise with our new families. Anyone interested in helping with transportation as a volunteer driver is asked to contact Peter Howard at 705-738-4432 or at sharon_e_ for more information. BARC is accepting donations for those who would like to support our second Syrian family. Cheques can be made out to Trinity United Church with BARC clearly written in the memo line. They can be mailed or dropped off at Trinity United Church, 44 William Street, P.O. Box 426, Bobcaygeon, Ontario, K0M 1A0. Income Tax receipts will be issued for amounts over $25.

Film and art meet at the next presentation of the Kawartha Lakes Film Circuit -- Films by the Falls. The feature film “Maudie “ will run on April 25 at Fenelon Falls Secondary School. It is rated 14A. The film is a biography of one of Canada’s most well-known folk artists set in the Canadian Maritimes in the 1930s. This 13-year project has evolved into a raw, genuine and artistic masterpiece. The maritime scenery and replication of Maudie’s home come to life as do the simple images from the brush in the arthritic hands of Maud Lewis. The pre-show event is a pop-up art gallery featuring local artists Naomi Taylor, Gail McFadden, Ian Ball and Hanneke Koonstra. Doors open at 6:30pm with the feature presentation at 7:30pm. Tickets are on sale for $10 at the Box Office on the evening of the screening, or in advance at Sweet Bottoms Coffee House in Fenelon Falls.

In the coming weeks, Parks Canada will be conducting spring maintenance at some of our swing bridges and sites along the Trent-Severn Waterway, in preparation for the 2017 navigation season. This includes preventative maintenance tasks like washing and greasing swing bridges and conducting visual inspections to ensure their safe operability. Drivers can expect some traffic delays of about 10 minutes between April 10 and mid-May to swing bridges including the Bobcaygeon Swing Bridge and the Bolsover Swing Bridge. Motorists are invited to plan their routes accordingly in order to avoid delays. To accommodate school bus traffic, efforts will be made to keep bridge delays between 9:00 am and 2:30 pm. Parks Canada wishes to thank bridge users for their patience during the maintenance period.


The Coboconk and Norland Horticultural Societies are pleased to host Miriam Goldberger to talk about Wildflowers on Wednesday, April 26 at Pioneer Baptist Church in Norland. Long before “Green” or “Sustainable” became the powerful buzzwords they are today, Miriam Goldberger began growing wildflowers and fell madly in love with the beauty and practicality that native plants bring to our lives. She is the founder and co-owner of Wildflower Farm, a wildflower seed production company in Ontario. It’s a magical 100 acres where the wildflower gardens and meadows thrive without irrigation or pesticides and are a pollinators’ paradise. A $10.00 cover charge, payable at the door, will include light refreshments. The event begins at 1pm. Seating is limited to 100 participants. For reservations, please email or call Lou at 705-454-3636.

Have you ever wondered what happens to some of that furniture you ordered that arrives with small imperfections? Southern Comfort has worked with their manufacturers to redirect those potential returns to local charitable organizations. A Place Called Home is one of those organizations. And now, with their limited storage space bursting at the seams, they’re hosting a Silent Auction of some of that furniture. “Anyone who wants to get some high-end, highquality items at silent auction prices, is going to want to get in on this opportunity,” says Zita Devan, the volunteer event convenor for the Auction. The silent auction of 17 items, including Uttermost table lamps and larger furniture pieces by Hooker, takes place at the Lindsay Square Mall on April 27, 28 and 29. The auction is open during mall hours, but bids close at 4pm on the 29th. “We thank Southern Comfort for helping us turn this worthwhile donation into an event,” says Devan. “Since we have to raise more than $100,000 over and above our funding, this will go directly to the costs of running the hostel. It’s a win-win situation.” A Place Called Home is a charitable, non-profit organization that has been providing shelter and 24/7 support services to the homeless -- and those at risk of becoming homeless -- since 1995. They operate a 19bed shelter for youth, adults, couples and families who have found themselves with no safe place to go at the end of their day. You can find out more at


As part of the Canada 150th Author Series, Kawartha Lakes Public Library is pleased to welcome author Gabriele Wills back to her ‘hometown’ where she will talk about her trilogy set in the nearby Muskokas on April 26.

ART CONTEST WINNER: Emma Graham, a Grade 12 student at Haliburton Highlands Secondary School, was the 2017 winner of the Library Award as part of the Kawartha Art Gallery Secondary School Juried Show. Her piece “Down the Rabbit Hole” was inspired by her love of the story “Alice in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll and was part of an art project on altered books introduced by Emma’s art teacher. Kawartha Lakes Public Library is pleased to display “Down the Rabbit Hole” in the Children’s Services area of Lindsay Library.

My husband is a funny guy. He makes up words and names for different things. He calls Bobcaygeon “Bumpcaygeon” because of the potholes around the town. Many of us don’t do anything about it, like calling the City to have the holes fixed. Maybe this will ring a few bells at City Hall. Voting is now open for the annual CAA Worst Roads campaign. It’s not only about the potholes, though, roadways can be nominated for poor or non-existent cycling or walking areas or even poor road signs. CAA South Central Ontario recently conducted a member survey on the perception of local road conditions. Sixty-nine percent of respondents indicated that there is a road in their local community or on their commute that requires repair and 71 percent of these members indicated that they have never taken action to get the road repaired. The top voted CAA Worst Roads from 2016 were found in Prince Edward County, Timmins, Thunder Bay, St. Catharines, Hamilton, Sudbury and Toronto. Votes for CAA’s Worst Roads can be cast at www.caaworstroads. com until May 1st. Once voting is closed, CAA will compile a list of the Top 10 Worst Roads in Ontario and the worst roads in regions across the province. The regional top five lists will help shine a light on the state of local roads in municipalities across Ontario. CAA will present the list of 2017 Worst Roads to local and provincial officials to help inform future funding and planning decisions. Participants will be entered weekly into prize draws, concluding with a grand prize draw to win free gas for a year.

How many times have you cleaned out your kitchen cabinets and found multiple containers of the same spice? Or reached waaaaaay back to get something out of your bathroom vanity cabinet? These are common problems in most homes, but there is something you can do about it! I’m talking about making the most of your storage space, getting more organized and best of all, making access easier. Gliding Shelf Solutions owner, Tyler Rushlow, uses his 10 years of experience to help people get the most of the space they have. “Gliding shelves are most often used for kitchens,” he says, “especially to get easier access to pots and pans. But pantry cabinets are also a good place to use them. It can help you get organized and know what you have on the shelves.” But it’s also about making things easier to reach and use. As we all get older, various physical limitations can affect our ability to bend, reach and lift. Anyone who has struggled to get that cast iron skillet out from the bottom of the cabinet will know what I mean. A gliding shelf can bring that cast iron skillet right to you. (Now, if it could only cook the steak, too!) And under the bathroom sink? That’s another place that Tyler sees applications for his products. They’ll work around the pipes and p-traps under the sink to give you storage solutions that suit your needs.

It’s Easy Being Green

By Julia Taylor

One day, there were a few crows eying my garbage at the end of my driveway. As they started getting closer and were about to start making a big mess I remembered that crows are clever, social beings. So I opened my front door and heckled them, and then gave them the “stink eye” for a few minutes. It worked. Somehow. Until the next week, and many weeks to follow when I wasn’t there to shoo them away. Getting annoyed with the mess I started asking around to see how everyone else kept them away. I heard things like building a box for the end of the driveway, using

a garbage can, and even spraying bags with a pepper or bleach solution (not safe for the truck drivers or any wildlife guys). I didn’t want to do any of that. Then it dawned on me that they wanted my food scraps. If I could eliminate food scraps out of our garbage, they wouldn’t want our garbage at all, but how does one do that? Composting - that’s how! Well, I had heard composting is one of the greenest things you can do, so this was the nudge to get me started. With the help of my husband I put together a box out of old 2x4’s, started putting all of our fruit and veggie scraps into a pail on our counter, and then taking them out to the compost box. Twice a year when I rake the lawn, I add some leaves into the box and, like magic, the scraps just melt away into dirt. I didn’t get rid of the crows though. Turns out they prefer things that can’t be composted, like meat. But, with less “wet” garbage, the mess was much easier to clean up. It also reduced our garbage by about 50 percent, making it easier to carry to the curb. And, I was reducing my carbon footprint and putting valuable materials back into the soil!

April 21 to May 4 Melodie McCullough

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19): Success is sweet, Aquarius. Always remember success does not often come without struggle -- and knowing you have overcome those trials, makes success all the more sweeter. Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20): “Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken.”: Frank Herbert. Pisces, are you ready to be awakened? It’s Spring, the best time of year for searching and enjoying all the wondrous new experiences waiting for you. Aries (March 21 to April 20): Your inner strength may be tried during this phase, Aries. Gather fortitude from friends and family on whom you can depend. Do not let fear weaken you. You WILL triumph in the end. Taurus (April 21 to May 21): The pain of loss can be unbearable, Taurus, and we sense you are struggling with a deep pain at this time. Comfort sometimes comes from unlikely places and people. Keep an open heart for all opportunities that will help you heal. Gemini (May 22 to June 22): Love comes. Love comes in many different and, sometimes unusual, ways and places, Gemini. Romantic, or otherwise, let it lift you up! Cancer (June 23 to July 23): Perfection is most often unattainable, Cancer. Utopia is a dream world. BUT that does not mean we must give up the fight for perfection


and Utopia! Strive always for excellence and change WILL come. Leo (July 24 to Aug. 22): Your good deeds and the values you exude do not go unnoticed, dear Leo. They may seem to be “under the radar”, but they matter most to the people who matter! Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 23): Expect some unexpected financial compensation in the near future, Virgo. Perhaps you should put it away for a rainy day. But, then again, what’s the fun in that? Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23): Your travel plans may have to take a back seat to more pressing issues, Libra. Don’t worry. There is still plenty of time to make those adventures happen. Just pace yourself. Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22): Pride can be a funny thing, Scorpio. Of course it is good to have pride in oneself and one’s accomplishments. But a person can also get carried away, thinking their accomplishments are more important than anyone else’s. Don’t let YOU be that person! Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21): The storm is almost over, dear Sag. Keep looking forward with your eyes fixed on your goals, and you will not go wrong. Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20): Never doubt your importance in the scheme of things. It may seem like you are not getting a lot of attention for your efforts, but underneath it all, hidden from view, you have many admirers, Capricorn.

Raising a family can be expensive, but there are many benefits, credits, and deductions that can help your family with costs during the year. They could even lower the amount you owe at tax time! However it is important to file on time if you want your credits. Check out these potential savings from the Canada Revenue Agency: 1. Canada child benefit (CCB) - The CCB is a tax-free monthly payment made to eligible families to help them with the cost of raising children under the age of 18. 2. Child care expenses – Did your kids attend daycare or a child care program in 2016? You or your spouse or common-law partner might be able to claim what you spent on eligible child care in 2016. 3. Working income tax benefit – If you are a working family or individual with a low income, you might be eligible for this refundable tax credit intended to provide tax relief to low-income Canadian workers. Eligible individuals and families may be able to apply for advance payments. 4. Child disability benefit– You might be eligible for this tax-free benefit if you care for a child under the

Health & Wellness Tips to Improve Your Mental Wellness

By Vera Voroskolevska, therapist and social worker in Bobcaygeon.

We make a conscious effort to improve our physical health by incorporating good nutrition and daily exercise in our routines. When it comes to mental health, do you pay as close attention? Most individuals attend to their physical needs


For those who are intent on wearing a hearing aid that is so tiny that they will be the only ones to know that they are wearing one, there is the “Invisible-in-the-Canal” (IIC) hearing aid. These hearing aids, which are custom-fitted from impressions of the wearer’s ear canal, are positioned so deeply inside the ear that they typically come in shades that are intended to mimic the shadows inside the ear. Virtually invisible, IIC hearing aids are most suitable for those with a mild to moderate hearing loss. Because they are placed so close to the eardrum, IIC instruments ensure immediate response to sound with less ambient noise. Invisible-in-thecanal instruments are the choice of those who value discretion. Our clinic offers a full range of diagnostic and hearing-loss prevention services, hearing aids and assistive devices. We continue the tradition of better hearing through education, technology, and customer service. To schedule an appointment, please give us a call. Our expertise is measured by our commitment to patient satisfaction, continuing education, and the application of current technologies. P.S. “Invisible-in-the-Canal” hearing aids require that those who place and remove them from their ears have good manual dexterity (because of their small size).

much more diligently and intentionally than to the emotional aspects of health. This could be attributed to our societal focus on mental illness rather emotional wellness. Similarly to our physical health, where we focus on health promotion and optimization of our physical abilities, we can improve our mental wellness in order to overcome any challenges and stresses we may face down the road. Here are some tips to maintain and improve your mental wellness: Track gratitude and achievement. At the end of day review three things you are grateful for and three things you accomplished. For optimal results, write them down in a journal. However, simply reflecting on things that make you feel good is highly beneficial. Get creative. Experiment with a new recipe, work on an art idea, write a poem, or try a do-it-yourself home project. Creative expression allows you to step outside of your comfort zone and day-to-day mundane tasks. Make sure your to-do list contains some of these “create” items and not only “get it done” tasks. Express Your Love. Quality relationships are key for a happy life and significantly improve our ability to handle life challenges. Express your love with your family, friends, community, and pets. Laugh. Even a couple of minutes of laughter improves our mental wellness and can have lasting effects. Spend time with your friends, watch a comedy, or read jokes. Also try to laugh at some silly life situations instead of criticizing and blaming yourself.

There are many more methods to improve or maintain mental wellness and their effectiveness ranges from one person to another. So it is important to find and practice strategies that are right for you. Your social worker, therapist, or doctor could provide you with additional support if you need to discuss your mental health challenges. Similarly to your physical health, sometimes you need a trained professional to treat your mental health for a period of time or periodically.


The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) has recognized Kingston hometown heroes the Tragically Hip for their support of brain cancer research. A commemorative plaque was presented to the band in honour of their support for cancer clinical trials at the Canadian Cancer Trials Group (CCTG). CCTG, housed at Queen’s University in Kingston, is supported by a core grant from the Canadian Cancer Society. Since the announcement last year that the Hip’s frontman, Gord Downie, has glioblastoma (an aggressive form of brain cancer), many Canadians have shown their support through donations to CCS. “The Canadian Cancer Society is very grateful to the Tragically Hip and their generous fans for this donation of $400,000 for brain cancer research,” says Lynne Hudson, CCS president and CEO. “Clinical trials offer hope for people with cancer and provide an opportunity for researchers to find better treatments for others in the future. CCS is proud to be able to support clinical trials at CCTG across the country through donations from the public.” Clinical trials can help patients directly. For example, in collaboration with colleagues in Europe, CCTG conducted a trial to see if a chemotherapy drug called temozolomide along with radiation following surgery for glioblastoma could improve survival. The trial showed positive results, and this combination therapy is what Downie received at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto. Every day about 25 Canadians are diagnosed with some form of brain tumour. Glioblastoma is an aggressive disease and is the most common primary brain cancer in adults. Unfortunately, most adults with a diagnosis of glioblastoma survive only 1–2 years after diagnosis.


Pfizer Canada Inc., the Canadian distributor of EpiPen® (epinephrine) Auto-Injector has announced a voluntary recall in consultation with Health Canada of one lot of EpiPen 0.3 mg (epinephrine) and one lot of EpiPen Jr 0.15 mg (epinephrine) Auto-Injectors distributed in Canada. In Canada, the recall impacts one lot (5GU763) of the 0.3 mg strength of EpiPen Auto-Injector expiring in May 2017 and one lot (5GR765) of the 0.15 mg strength of EpiPen Jr Auto-Injector expiring in March 2017. This voluntary recall is being conducted as a result of the receipt of two previously disclosed reports outside of Canada of failure to activate the device due to a potential defect in a supplier component. The potential defect could make the device difficult to activate in an emergency (failure to activate or increased force needed to activate) and have significant health consequences for a patient experiencing a lifethreatening allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). The incidence of the defect is extremely rare and testing and analysis across the potentially impacted lots has not identified any units with a defect.   Patients should keep their existing product until their replacement product can be secured.   Consumers with questions regarding this recall can contact Pfizer Medical Information at 1-800-4636001 between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EST.

The Canadian Cancer Society is pleased to see the recent federal budget followed through on the government’s commitment to improving home and palliative care. Access to better palliative care is becoming increasingly urgent as Canada’s aging population faces an almost 40 percent increase in the number of new cancer cases by 2030. “About 8 out of 10 people who receive palliative care are cancer patients,” says Kelly Masotti, director, public issues, Canadian Cancer Society. This federal budget fulfills the government’s commitment to invest $11 billion over the next 10 years in home care, palliative care and mental health. However, money alone won’t alleviate the burden on the healthcare system or improve the lives of those affected by cancer unless it is accompanied by concrete plans for this investment. CCS has been advocating for better palliative care options with all levels of government in order to ensure that all Canadians can access affordable, highquality palliative care in the setting of their choice. “We are pleased to see the introduction of a new

and more flexible caregiver benefit. This will allow for more Canadians living with cancer and their families to receive financial support when they need it most,” says Masotti. Caregivers support and provide key services to thousands of cancer patients every year in Canada while bearing significant personal and financial burdens. CCS is ready to work with the government to continue to eliminate barriers for Canadians who need caregiver support.


Caregivers, those who provide ongoing assistance to special physical and mental conditions, are getting more support from the Central East Local health Integration Network (Central East LHIN). There’s a new, free six-week workshop called Powerful Tools for Caregivers. Part of the SelfManagement Program, caregivers can learn the skills and tools needed to reduce personal stress, change negative self-talk, and communicate their needs to family members and health care providers. The LHIN will offer nine free workshop sessions between April and September 2017. By providing these Powerful Tools for Caregivers workshops, the Central East LHIN is supporting the Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care objectives of engaging and empowering patients and caregivers to improve their own health outcomes and experiences, and by creating a culture of health and wellness.

They retired to their home in Nogies Creek, ON where they lived the cottage-life dream; enjoying years of boating on the Trent-Severn Waterway with family and friends. He was a consummate tinkerer and had amassed an incredible collection of tools, with a memory of each item’s location that could be recalled at any time. Like his father, Floyd had the farmer’s way of fixing anything, with varying degrees of success. When not outside, Floyd was passionate about history. He was an avid reader of WWI and WWII anthologies and historical books. Floyd would often sit in his chair, by the river, and read. Other interests included computers and technology which he combined with his love of ancestry; using the internet and available resources to locate past relatives. Pets were an important part of his life and he enjoyed his daily walks with Sparky. Floyd loved camping and frequented most Ontario parks to pitch a tent, play his banjo and sing old standards; often drawing a crowd of like-minded musicians. Cremation has taken place in Bobcaygeon, Ontario. A Celebration of Life will take place at Nogies Creek, Ontario in the spring. Floyd will be interred alongside his mother and father at Roy’s Cemetery in Fullerton, Ontario at a date to be determined. In lieu of flowers the family has asked donations be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada or The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. The family is especially grateful to the doctors and nurses at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Peterborough Regional Health Center, and Ross Memorial Hospital’s Palliative Care Unit, who provided excellent care and support, during his short but valiant battle with a very rare form of Leukemia (Blastic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cell Neoplasm).

Water Damage

Tips On Staying Dry This Season

sponsored by Stewart Morrison Insurance Water damage is now one of the leading causes of property damage in Ontario and across Canada resulting in an estimated $1.7 billion in damages. This is the result of many factors such as more severe and unpredictable weather patterns, aging infrastructure and our growing population. Common types of water damage include roof leaks from heavy rains or ice damning, basement flooding from sump pump failure or sewer backup, burst pipes due to freezing or aging systems and water leaks from appliances. These instances will generally be covered under a typical homeowners policy. Unfortunately, Canada now has 20 times the storms and floods than we did just two decades ago. Major floods represent almost 40% of all natural disasters ever recorded in this country and costs to repair property from water damage are also on the rise. Previously Canada was the only G8 country where flood insurance was not available to homeowners. Protection is now available to provide coverage for loss or damage resulting from overland water. This means coverage for losses to the exterior or interior of your dwelling from sudden accumulation or runoff of surface waters including torrential rainfall or spring thaw and from overflows from any body of fresh water. Water damage is serious business. It can be a big drain - financially, emotionally, even physically. Just one inch is all it takes to destroy sentimental or irreplaceable items, or to cause expensive structural damage. With a little know-how and some routine maintenance, you can stay ahead of the wave and keep unwanted water out. For some easy things you can do inside and outside your home to help keep you comfortable, safe and dry check out our blog at 34

National Day of Mourning

On April 28, workplaces across Canada will take time to reflect on the lives lost in workplace accidents or those who have suffered occupational illnesses and injuries. It’s also a time to honour the many families and friends who have been deeply affected by these tragedies. And, most important, it is a day to focus on preventing future tragedies. According to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, the most recent statistics from the Association of Workers’ Compensation Boards of Canada (AWCBC) indicate that in 2015, 852 workplace deaths were recorded in Canada. Among those dead were four young workers aged 15 to 19 years; and another 11 workers aged 20 to 24 years. Add to these fatalities the 232,629 claims accepted for lost time due to a work-related injury or disease and the fact that these statistics only include what is reported and accepted by the compensation boards, it is safe to say that the total number of workers impacted is even higher. By working together – with employers, workers and our health and safety partners – we can prevent worker injuries and deaths before they occur. Every worker has the right to return home safe and sound at the end of each workday.
