Thank You to Bobcaygeon

The Communities in Bloom judges toured our town July 10 to 12 and assessed us in 6 categories (heritage conservation; tidiness; environmental action and sustainability; landscape; urban forestry and trees; floral). To put it simply, the judges liked what they saw! Their most telling comments about our town however, weren’t about our flowers, landscape or trails, they were about our people. The judges were impressed with the way in which this town comes together to get things done! There are so many individuals and groups in Bobcaygeon who spend time to help better our community, accomplishing much along the way. Our Communities in Bloom effort has been about uniting these groups to encourage the community to work together for the benefit of our village. The COKL, businesses, residents, cottagers and visitors did just that, worked together, bolstered each other up. We saw neighbours helping each other, community BBQs were held, volunteers pitched in and helped where they were needed and groups shared their resources – so many showed up and donated their most precious commodity, their time. Looking around at what we have accomplished in two-and-a-half short months since entering the Communities in Bloom program, we can be so proud of our village of Bobcaygeon. Individually we had achieved a great deal but working together we have accomplished so much more. It was Harry Truman who said “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” And that is so evident here in Bobcaygeon. We will be notified in September how our town fared in the contest, but in our hearts we know that you didn’t do it for the recognition, you did it for the community and for this you are already a winner. Your Bobcaygeon Communities in Bloom Team

this action is absolutely backward and stupid, wasteful thinking as a method to reduce hydro rates. I believe the best possible method is to make Hydro using solar, wind and water, as close to the use of the energy. Consider the amount of energy lost in transporting that energy on the lines. For an example of good thinking, look at the new building on Lindsay Street in Lindsay. The solar panels on that new roof are awesome. They are clean-looking and part of the design and forward thinking. You are part of the team of wisdom running this province. You need to step up and gather your members and make choices that are reasonable, not backward. When the Hydro goes off, I realize how dependent we are on a good system and good people making good decisions to put the lights back on. I always say a “thank you” to Hydro One when lights come on and I can continue to live my life of abundance.  We, as a people, need to support wise renewable energy decisions. You are our voice. We need you to be a voice for good government. Never underestimate the power of one voice. Please, please, please make good decisions.  Mary Auld, Snug Harbour

Municipal Volunteers Matter

On July 20, I received, by email, a letter from City Clerk, Cathy Ritchie, terminating my tenure with the Municipal Heritage Committee, effective immediately. According to the email, this dismissal was based on a claim that I violated the Code of Conduct and/or Bylaw Protocols. The letter blindsided me, as I had good relations with all staff and committee members and, notwithstanding some ideological differences about heritage funding that were not part of committee business, I got along well with everyone. So, as I was in the dark, I attended City Hall on Monday and filed a request for access to the Clerk’s report under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. But I was told that, under the Municipal Act, a complaint originating in the office of the CAO and voted on in closed session of council will probably be ineligible for disclosure under FIPPA. In the City of Kawartha Lakes, then, a volunteer has no option to answer or defend themselves against accusations. This right to answer accusations is fundamental to civil society. Denying accused volunteers an opportunity to respond tramples around both the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The impact on the other members of the Heritage Committee has been demoralizing. I have been told that

Editorial Response

I have always been impressed with your “Over the Back Fence” observations, but was surprised to see that in tthe July 26 edition you chose to paint Donald Trump and Doug Ford with the same brush. The Green Energy Act had to go. The Act that allowed the Ontario Government to over-ride its own laws, and that of the municipalities in order to push through approval for unneeded and inefficient wind and solar farms. That’s why we have wind farms on the Oak Ridges Moraine right here in CKL, even though the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Act forbade any commercial industrial development on this ecologically sensitive area. Even Kathleen Wynne admitted she had made a mistake, for which she apologized, but basically said that it was too late to cancel contracts that had already been signed. I am surprised to see from your comments that Doug Ford is cancelling hydro electric projects. Are you absolutely sure about that? I will be interested in seeing whether the projects in Buckhorn and Lakefield eventually go forward. Carl Sweetman, Lindsay

CHORISTERS’ CORNER

By April Scott

With July behind us, it is time to think about the upcoming concert with the Reunion Choir in September. Two practices will be held in August and then we let our Director take a well-earned holiday before the next two practices in September. Bob has also ordered the Christmas music for us to start learning in September. By the time you read this we will have had our annual summer potluck party. It’s a chance for everyone to catch up on the latest news. Some will be on vacation but we will be thinking of them. We will be looking out for new members -- aren’t we always? If you like to sing, particularly Christmas music, please come out and join us at the Retirement Suites on a Tuesday night at 7pm in September. We would love to see you. This group not only enjoys singing but is also very friendly -- in fact we are just one big happy family! Short and sweet this week. There will be lots more news to come after the summer break.

BRAS FOR BREAST CANCER

The St. James Anglican Church Women’s Group has taken on a terrific project to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer. They’re holding a contest for the “Best Decorated Bra”, open now and running until September 4. The idea is simple. First, pick up a registration form at Watson’s Village Shop on Colborne Street or St. James Anglican Church on Bond Street in Fenelon Falls. Pay your $10 registration fee, complete the form and make one of your old bras look even prettier. Add fabric, feathers, flowers or however you want to jazz it up. Then drop it off at the church before September 4. On September 6 at 11am, there will be a Fall Fashion Show and Lunch at St. James Anglican Church in Fenelon Falls. The bras will be the decorations, displayed around the church hall. The bra entries are anonymous, identified only by a number. The guests at the Fashion Show will vote for first, second and third place, with cash prizes. The hall will be decorated in a pink theme with pink tablecloths and napkins. There will also be brochures from the Cancer Society. The $10 registration fee for the bra entry goes to Breast Cancer Research. The proceeds from the $15 tickets for the Fashion Show and Lunch will benefit the St. James Anglican Church Women’s Group. While some of the entrants choose to keep their bras, Arlene Godby, the Community Fundraising Specialist at the Canadian Cancer Society has suggested that after the event, the bras can be sent to

A TRADITION FOR ART LOVERS

Great art means different things to different people, and at the Buckhorn Fine Art Festival there is something for everyone. For more than 40 years, this world-class show and sale features works from more than 80 Canadian visual artists, sculptors, jewelers and photographers. The 2018 Buckhorn Fine Art Festival kicks off with an Opening Night celebration on Friday, August 17 from 7pm to 9:30pm. It’s an opportunity to connect with the artists, browse through the 11 outdoor galleries and take advantage of the beautiful parklike setting of the Buckhorn Community Centre. Opening night also features the musical stylings of Bridget Foley and the Pocket Kings. Catering is provided by Swanky Events and Executive Chef Doris Hiller. At this special opening night event, there will also be two opportunities for guests to enter a draw for

one of two pieces of art. For $75, guests can purchase a numbered ticket to enter a draw for a “Mystery Masterpiece” from a 2018 Art Festival exhibitor. If your ticket is drawn on Opening Night, you get to choose one from the number of pieces of artwork available. Only a limited number of tickets will be sold. As another opening night perk, Michael Dumas, one of the original artists who helped launch the Buckhorn Fine Art Festival 41 years ago, has donated a piece for a second Opening Night prize draw. The original graphite study, “Looking Out”, has a value of $1,000 and is the featured painting in this year’s Special Exhibit, “The Lives of Birds”. Opening night ticket holders are automatically entered into this draw and additional tickets are available for $75 each. Winners of the draws must be onsite at the time of the draw to claim their prizes. The Festival continues on Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19, from 10am to 5pm each day. Admission is $20 (in advance) for opening night, which includes parking. Single day passes are available for $8. You can find out more information at www. buckhornfineart.com.

Part of the vision of the Buckhorn Fine Art Festival has always been to encourage the development of creativity in the visual arts, as well as recognize and support artistic talent. For many years, the Festival has held an Art Competition and entries are displayed throughout the Festival weekend. Entries come in from teenage artists (ages 13 to 19), from individuals developing their art skills and in a new medium (2 years or less) and from individuals who identify themselves as hobby or professional. Showcasing their individual creative style, design and techniques, a panel of judges awards prizes in the Teenage Class, Novice Class and Hobby Artist Class. In addition, there are awards in four categories in the Open Class, depending on the medium.

I am approachable and will be accountable to you , while protecting the Municipalities best interest. I want the opportunity to represent you as a new strong voice, that is active and responsible, honest and transparent, informed and engaged. We need fresh ideas, forward thinking, and genuine concern for the whole Municipality! Lets work together towards a better Municipality to Live, Work and Play in.

THE ARTIVITY ZONE

The concept behind the annual ARTivity Zone at the Buckhorn Fine Art Festival is to nurture artistic creativity for children and adults. There are a variety of interactive art activities, where they can freely explore, experience and use their imagination, while drawing inspiration from nature. Self-directed activities are expressed by “studios” for painting, drawing, collage, manipulatives, and a light exploration cave. The “A-Zone” also provides a cool resting area and a location for drying work and display. Months of planning and hours of hard work go into making the Buckhorn Fine Art Festival the success that it is. The ARTivity Zone is successful thanks to the dedication of the volunteers that embrace the concept and work in the area throughout the BFAF weekend. ARTivity Zone sponsors are Crayola Canada and Gerri’s Art and Craft Supplies. The Ontario Early Years Centre in Lindsay was also a large contributor of equipment used at the ARTivity Zone. Be sure to stop in while you’re at the Festival.

HELPING THE WILDLIFE

As commercial and residential growth continues to explode, our wildlife is being pushed aside into smaller and smaller spaces. Sadly, a large number of wild birds, mammals & reptiles regularly fall victim to road accidents, human cruelty and lack of suitable habitat and food. As the need for rescue of these orphaned and injured animals has increased, enter Shades of Hope. Shades of Hope is licensed by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Canadian Wildlife Services, serving areas throughout south central Ontario. Located in Pefferlaw, their mission is to nurture, treat and rehabilitate injured and orphaned native wildlife with the goal of releasing healthy animals back into their natural habitats. They have made the commitment to provide veterinary care, proper nourishment and a safe place until the animals can be released. They take animals from all over Ontario. Recently they were able to rehab an injured opossum that two boys in Lindsay were playing with. The organization receives up to 100 phone calls a day from the community who need help to help a variety of wildlife, from birds to fox. As a registered charitable organization, Shades of Hope depends on donations to continue their good work, and volunteers to help take care of the animals. If you’d like to support them in any way, you can find more information on their website. You can also visit their website for tips on what to do in case of a wildlife animal emergency.

BEER TASTING 101

We went to a few industry sources to find out what’s important when tasting beer. At the end of the day, it all comes down to what you like in taste, but if you’re looking to try something new at the Bobcaygeon Craft Beer & Food Festival on August 18, here are some handy tips.

Appearance

When the beer is poured into the glass, take note of the colour of it. Don’t be fooled by how dark it is. It’s possible to have a dark-coloured beer that tastes and feels light or a light coloured beer that has rich and complex flavours. The colour of the beer is directly related to its malt content, which will affect the taste of the beer, not its alcoholic content.

Aroma

The aroma of craft beer comes mainly from the hops, malt and yeast strain. Many of today’s craft beers feature fruity and floral scents that add to the initial reaction to the product. So before you take a sip, put your nose to the beer. BEER AND CIDER.

Mouthfeel & Taste

Now it’s time to taste the brew, but only take a sip and let it linger on your tongue. That will give you an indication of the “weight” of the beer, acidity, smoky or fruity flavour. Once you swallow it, how long does the taste remain in your mouth? Is it bitter or sweet? Can you still taste it on the back of your throat after it’s gone? No matter how you taste your beer or what your individual taste is, you’ll have the chance to sample from 10 craft breweries, two cideries and a winery. Take your time experiencing the different brands and take advantage of the staff who can help you find your perfect beverage. The Bobcaygeon Craft Beer & Food Festival runs Saturday, August 18 from 12noon to 7pm at Kawartha Settlers’ Village in Bobcaygeon. For more, visit bobcaygeonbeerfestival.ca.

ROOTS ‘N’ RAMBLINGS

By Linda Friend

The Bobcaygeon and District Horticultural Society thanks the many individuals and businesses who contributed to our very successful Heritage Garden Tour. The 350 attendees were certainly treated to a busy day which included admission to Kawartha Settlers’ Village and the Boyd Heritage Museum. Each year local businesses support our tour in myriad ways. They kindly sell our tickets, donate door prizes, sponsor ads, offer lunch discounts to tour participants and provide food for the dessert tea. Displays provided by Kathy Martin (herbs), Aron Muscott (heritage plants), Sandi McNeil (basketry) and Sherry Summerside (beekeeping) continued our heritage theme. The music of John Max & His One Man Band created the perfectly relaxed atmosphere of tea time at Settlers’ Village. The Minden Master Gardeners each year offer expert advice to our visitors. However, it is the gardens that draw folks from both neighbouring and distant communities. Though diverse in style, the 2018 gardens share common elements: beautiful plants and creative flair. Our sincere gratitude to these gracious garden owners: Julie and Glenn Williams, Charles Pitcher, Linda Wesselink, Diane Tremblay and John Max, Ruth and Brian Eberts, Judy Pinkerton and Cam Butler. Proceeds generated by the garden tour are entirely devoted to beautification of the village and to promotion of horticultural activities. The next event of our calendar is the 54th Annual Flower/Vegetable Show and Tea on Wednesday, August 8. Please join us between 1pm and 4pm to view the displays and to enjoy a relaxing summer treat.

Health & Wellness GET SOME QUALITY SLEEP

By Jennifer Bacon

Exercise, eat well, and get a good night’s sleep. That’s great advice we hear over and over again. All three are vital to physical health and well-being, but proper rest, on a regular basis isn’t just a good idea, it is essential. Here is what better sleep can mean to you: 1 Sleep can improve your memory: When you’re really tired it can be hard to remember things. This is your brain telling you that it’s not getting enough down time. When you sleep well, your brain gets busy sorting and storing your memories, creating pathways to help you access them later. Getting more quality sleep will help you access those memories and process things better. 2 Sleep can improve your mood: Lack of sleep can make us more agitated, so we’re more likely to snap at a neighbour or be grumpy with a loved one, neither of which is a good thing. The better you sleep the better your ability to stay calm, cool and controlled. 3 Sleep helps keep your heart healthy: A regular sleep schedule can help to lower the levels of stress and inflammation to your cardiovascular system, which in turn can reduce your chances of a stroke or heart condition. 4 Sleep can be a painkiller: If you’re suffering pain from a recent injury like a sprained wrist or ankle, getting plenty of sleep can actually make you hurt less.

studies have shown a link between sleep loss and a lower pain threshold. Basically the more sleep you get, the less pain you might feel. 5 Sleep can make you smarter: Along with a great night’s sleep, a daytime catnap can help to make your brain more effective and productive. A quick rest can help you feel sharper, more attentive and focused throughout the day. If you’ve ever thought that sleep doesn’t really matter all that much, think again, because it actually matters a great deal. Without enough rest, proper diet and exercise don’t stand a chance.

EPI-PEN SHORTAGE

Following Health Canada’s most recent communication regarding a shortage of EpiPen (0.3 mg) and EpiPen Jr (0.15 mg) auto-injectors, Pfizer Canada has advised Health Canada that supply of EpiPen in the 0.3 mg format is expected to be very limited at pharmacies during the month of August. This means that while some pharmacies may currently have some inventory on-hand, it will likely be depleted in the coming days or weeks. Pfizer Canada does not expect to be able to provide new supply until the end of August. The company has also advised that, at this time, they continue to be able to supply EpiPen Jr (0.15 mg); however, the supply is limited and is being carefully managed at the national level. EpiPen and EpiPen Jr are used to deliver an emergency treatment of adrenaline (epinephrine) to patients who are at risk or have a history of life-threatening allergic reactions (anaphylaxis). There are currently no alternative auto-injectors available on the market in Canada.

WALKING TO HELP THE HOMELESS

On Saturday, August 11, people will join Mark Fevang in his 15th Annual Walk to raise money and awareness for homelessness. Over the past 14 years, Mark has raised more than $97,000 for A Place Called Home that provides shelter and 24/7 support services to the homeless and those at risk of being homeless. There’s a 5K walk and a 10K walk that are open to anyone with $25 in pledges or a $30 registration fee for others. Registration is at 8am at Victoria Park/Lindsay Farmers’ Market for the 10K Walk or at 10am at 363 Kent Street West (the A&W parking lot) for the 5K walk. Help Mark reach his goal of $15,000. Pick up a registration form and pledge sheet from a Place Called Home at 64 Lindsay Street South or print your own from the website www.apch.ca. A Place Called Home is a charitable, non-profit organization that operates a 19-bed shelter for youth, adults, couples and families who have found themselves with no safe place to go at the end of their day.

this summer: • Boost your creativity: One of the biggest perks of vacation time is the break in routine. By changing things up during your time off, you expose your brain to new experiences and allow for your creativity to flow freely. Even a “staycation” can be as beneficial as a trip away. • Improve your overall mental health: Time off from work provides an opportunity to focus on areas of your life that you may neglect when you’re hard at work. This means you’ll have more time for selfcare, more time to spend with loved ones and more time to enjoy your favourite activities. • Reduce stress and re-energize: If you’ve ever returned from a vacation excited to come home, you’ll understand why taking time away from work is so important. Remember to disconnect from your office – don’t look at your emails, work texts or phonecalls.

TAKE THAT VACATION

As the summer enters into its final months, it’s important to talk about the positive impact that taking a vacation can have on your mental health. The Canadian Mental Health Association says that Canadians spend about a third of their lives in the workplace. Even though it might seem productive to keep your nose to the grindstone, when people fail to disconnect, their job performance can actually decrease. Plus, without work-life balance, our minds and our bodies are at risk. Here are three reasons you should take a break

WHAT CONSUMERS WANT TO HEAR

As hearing-instrument manufacturers continue to make technical advancements that lead to ever smaller and “smarter” products, consumers find they have more reasons to purchase a hearing device. Foremost among the features that hearing-impaired consumers find most desirable are “multiple program settings,” each of which can be programmed for a different listening environment. This feature enables wearers of programmable instruments to transition easily from quiet environments such as libraries to noisy restaurants and even larger venues such as soccer fields and football stadiums. These different settings can be selected with the push of a button on the instrument itself, on a remote control, or via an app on a cell phone. This flexibility vastly improves listening ability and comfort. Although you might suspect that you need help with your hearing, you may not be aware of the different hearing instruments and other hearing enhancement devices that are available today. It takes the knowledge, experience, and dedication of a certified audiologist to accurately assess an individual’s hearing loss and then match and customfit that individual with the most appropriate hearing aid. We care about your hearing abilities at LINDSAY EAR CLINIC, and we’ll do all we can to bring the sounds of life back to you. P.S. One feature that is very popular among those purchasing hearing instruments is a “telecoil,” which wirelessly picks up a magnetic signal from a telephone or public address system.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) “Within you, there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at anytime and be yourself.”: Hermann Hesse. What a lovely thought, Aquarius – to know that we can find ourselves and enjoy ourselves away from the rush of everyday life! Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) Decide what matters – and what doesn’t – Pisces. That’s your job during this phase. Is it having the best car on the block, or the biggest house, or is it something more? You get to decide!   Aries (March 21 to April 20) Do your best and appreciate it, Aries. Don’t worry about others and what they think. You know of what you are capable, and when you succeed at ‘your best’, be proud of yourself!   Taurus (April 21 to May 21) Seek out the people and places that lift up your soul, dear Taurus. Forget about the toxic people, and don’t go to the places that bring bad memories. You know the difference between who and what is good for you and what is not, so follow through! Check out our 2nd location at Wilson Fields Thursday 11 am to 5:30 pm. St. Joseph Road Fresh veggies of various kinds, baking, maple syrup, honey, plants, preserves, soaps, lotions, smoked meats, frozen meats, hot coffee, crafts.

Gemini (May 22 to June 22) Family is everything! Yes, Gemini, sometimes it may seem that family members are not our best friends, but more likely that not, they are the ones who will be there for you in tough times. Remember and cherish them. Cancer (June 23 to July 23) We’re suggesting that you “cultivate simplicity” during the next few weeks, Cancer, as you may get bogged down with too many material things and too many options. Give your head a good shake, and  let only the important things stay there.   Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) Travel plans, Leo? Back to school plans? The world is a big place, and it’s waiting for you to discover its mysteries and joys. Don’t wait too long to carry out all those big plans!   Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) Beware false promises in the days ahead, Virgo. There are people in your life who may say one thing, then turn around and do the opposite. This is not good. Avoid them whenever possible.   Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) You’ve no doubt heard that laughter is the best medicine, Libra. We agree! There may be some small bumps in the road over the next while, but nothing that a good dose of laughter won’t assuage. So, find out what makes you laugh – and let’s hear a good belly-roar!   Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Adaptability is an important characteristic, and one that most Scorpions have in abundance. Always make sure that Plan B is well-rehearsed and ready to go when needed!   Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) ‘Better late than never’ may be a cliché, dear Sag, but clichés are usually correct! Don’t assume that it is too late to follow your dreams, or tell a certain person how much they mean to you. If you are still ruminating about something  – then do it!   Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Equilibrium is integral to every part of life. Like a rowboat that will tip when both oars are not even; like a bird that will cascade downward if both wings don’t align – so must everything you do be balanced and steady.
