OVER THE BACK FENCE

First of all, I want to thank those who took the time to send me personal messages after my last editorial. I appreciate your thoughtfulness. And now, on to Christmas! This issue of The Kawartha Promoter celebrates this festive time of year in a big way. And it is the most wonderful time of the year. It’s a time when families and friends get together in happiness and peace, when lights twinkle on beautifully decorated homes and businesses and the world slows down for just a few days to enjoy the miracles of life. When I was a child, we would spend Christmas Eve at a special candlelight midnight service at our local Anglican church. My Dad was the choirmaster and the rest of us raised our voices in songs of praise for the birth of our Lord. Those special memories made as a family, in my opinion, are what this season is all about. You can’t put a price on memories.

From our home to yours Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a Happy New Year. Photo: Kawartha Promoter files.

Don’t get me wrong ... rushing downstairs on Christmas morning to see what Santa had left was, at the time, important too. One year, I asked Santa for a Barbie house. I ran to the tree, saw the beautifully wrapped gift and ripped ‘er open. Back in the day, they were made of cardboard and all the furniture had to be assembled. My Dad told me to wait for him to put the furniture together, but I didn’t wait. You know what happened ... I ripped the couch! Tears were shed, but my Dad fixed it as good as new. Our full stockings were left on our beds so we had something to open first thing before waking up Mom and Dad. Inside were the inevitable orange stuffed into the toe, walnuts and brazil nuts, candy canes and a small wrapped gift. However you celebrate the holidays, I wish you and yours the blessings of the season.

City Hall MORE WORK, MORE MONEY By Pat Warren

Earlier this year, City of Kawartha Lakes Council decided to reduce the number of Councillors from 16 to 8 as part of the Core Services Review. It was thought that all parts of the corporation needed reviewing, including Council. At the Council meeting on November 26, Council set the compensation package for the term starting in 2019. In preparation for a decision, Mayor Andy Letham asked former Mayor of Lindsay, Max Radiff to give his opinion on a compensation package. Radiff looked at all possibilities including making it a fulltime job which he didn’t recommend. He said that if the position of Councillor became full-time, more people would run just for the money and not to serve the public. Radiff also said the public base their votes more on personal considerations which have nothing to do with the job. The Executive Committee reviewed Radiff’s recommendations and brought three options forward to Council. The first recommendation was essentially the status quo with mileage. Councillors currently have a base salary of $26,632 and a $3,600-a-year car allowance. This option would roll the car allowance into the base salary. Councillor Veale moved this resolution but was not supported. The second choice added $5,000 to the salary, including mileage, bringing the amount Councillors would be paid to $35,995 and again this resolution failed. The third recommendation that won the day will

add $10,000 plus mileage for a base salary of $41,065 per year. The Mayor’s salary will go from $73,728 plus $7,200 for car allowance in 2017 to $82,809 plus mileage in 2019. Councillors could also receive $5,000 a year for attending seminars and conventions. In addition, a Deputy Mayor will be chosen by Council for a oneyear term with an additional $2,500 per year to their salary. With the decision to half the representation and double the ward size, will come an increase in time spent representing constituents. Currently, there are more than 50 committees and some Councillors now sit on six committees or more. This will rise to 12 or more in 2019. There will be a reconsideration of committees in preparation for the next term of Council. During the debate of the three scenarios, Councillors Stauble and Strangway spoke against the motions and felt a decision should be put off to seek more public input and additional information on remuneration. Councillors Dunn, Breadner and James spoke against an increase. However, Councillor Dunn eventually supported the increase because he didn’t want the decision deferred to another day. Councillor James said he felt he had a pecuniary interest since he was voting on a resolution that may increase his future salary. Councillor Elmslie spoke in favour of the third recommendation saying that the increase may attract younger people to Council. Many Councillors were in support of the increased pay due to fact that even though the job isn’t considered a ‘full-time’ job, most Councillors felt that it will be the work of a full-time job. Mayor Letham said Councillors can put whatever effort they want into the job but it is not considered a full-time position. Councillor Seymour Fagan spoke in favour of the resolution and said that the increase will cost about $5 per residence, while now it costs over $8. She also said she didn’t run for the money but ran to support her community.

Councillor Junkin raised the question, “what is a Councillor worth?” He said it should go to the public for input. With an increase in ward size, fewer Councillors and increased workloads, the savings to the bottom line for taxpayers is about $100,000. In the end, a recorded vote was taken and the increase passed with Elmslie, Seymour Fagan, Yeo, Macklem, O’Reilly, Miller, Jillesen, Martin, Mayor Letham and Dunn voting in favour while Councillors Veale, Strangway, Junkin, Stauble, James and Breadner voting against the increase.

Lindsay Ops Landfill has about 19 years left, so the further capacity will extend the landfill to 21.3 years. The estimated operation costs for 2018 and 2019 include cost of minor retrofits at the landfill to better accept mattresses, as well as education costs of approximately $5,000. The net value to the City is estimated to be at least $217,400 in Year One (2018) and $365,500 in Year Two (2019) in deferred landfill space savings. This is a positive move towards becoming a Zero Waste Community.

RECYCLING MATTRESSES

GALLERY WANTS A HANDOUT

At the November 14 City of Kawartha Lakes Council meeting, Council supported the pilot project that could divert more than 7,000 mattresses/and or box springs a year from the Lindsay Landfill. These bulky items will free up landfill space, averaging about 0.65 m3 per mattress equating to 4,550 m3 of deferred landfill space saved per year. The 19-month pilot mattress recycling program will run from June 1, 2018 to December 31, 2019. A program review after one year of pilot results will provide sufficient data to make future recommendations for 2020 budget considerations. Public education will encourage residents to bring mattresses to the Lindsay landfill. Alternatively, residents can purchase a mattress sticker at $15/ mattress and set their items out for collection at the curb at any time throughout the year. This will be the same cost as delivering it to the Lindsay landfill for recycling. If mattresses are received at the other landfill sites they will continue to be accepted for disposal only. However, if the pilot project is successful, the program may be extended to the other landfills in the city. The program is hoping to increase the life of the landfill by 2.3 years, which equates to $477,750 in land space value per year. It is estimated that the

Esther Inglis, President of Gallery on the Lake Inc., approached Trent Lakes council on December 5, asking for $100,000 in financial assistance. The first question from Council came from Councillor Peter Raymond who asked whether the Gallery was a ‘for profit’ business? The answer was ‘yes’. “That being said,” he stated, “the Municipality is not in the business of providing money to ‘for profit’ businesses.” Councillor Raymond suggested seeking grants or loans from agencies like the Ontario Arts Council. Inglis told Council she could not apply for funding as she had no staff to do that and no money to pay someone to do that. Councillor Dick Persson suggested Community Futures Peterborough as an option for seeking financial help. Inglis replied that the Municipality “should” support her business as she stated that 99 percent of visitors are only there to “suit themselves”, not to buy art. She also told Council that her business brings more people to the region than any other. “You do not provide the economic impact that we do,” Inglis told Council. “I’d love to board the gallery up and walk away because you don’t deserve us.” Council agreed unanimously not to support the proposal brought forward by Esther Inglis.

COUNCIL DIVIDED

By Glenna Burns

Trent Lakes Council is divided over how to proceed with the proposed new Centralized Public Works Depot, despite the fact that calls for building tenders are scheduled to be released by the end of January 2018. The proposed construction of a new Public Works Depot for the municipality has been dividing citizens and Councillors since it was first developed several years ago. The main arguments have revolved around the choice of the site on County Road 49 and the fact the ‘centralized’ depot is not central in the municipality. Some see erecting the new depot at Flynn’s Corners as a better option. Councillor Dick Persson, seconded by Councillor Peter Raymond, motioned to have another Council meeting to go over the information again. The project, estimated to cost somewhere between $4 and $5 million, will amalgamate three outdated works depots spread around the municipality. CAO Lois O’Neill-Jackson cautioned Council not to “dither too long” on debating this building investment that already has cost the municipality several hundreds of thousands in design and site work. “We’ve invested significant amounts of money into this site,” she said. The CAO was also worried about losing prospective grant money with further delays. Mayor Bev Matthews felt having another meeting was a waste of time and money. “In the past you have supported this project, in the past you have had studies done. We should try to do the right thing and not the political thing,” said the Mayor as she addressed Council on the issue. After all was said and done, a meeting of Council was scheduled for Tuesday, December 12 at 9am to review the Centralized Works Depot proposal.

OVERNIGHT PARKING RESTRICTIONS IN EFFECT

As winter weather approaches the City would like to remind residents that the seasonal ban on overnight parking until April 30 is now in effect. On-street parking On-street parking is prohibited on City streets between 11pm and 6am. Vehicles may be ticketed and/or towed regardless of snow clearing operations and weather conditions. In the following downtown areas prohibited parking hours are between 2am and 6am: Lindsay • Kent Street West from Lindsay Street to Victoria Ave Bobcaygeon • Bolton Street from King Street to Canal Street in Bobcaygeon Fenelon Falls • Colborne Street from Water Street to Bond Street • May Street from Water Street to Francis Street •Francis Street West from Colborne Street to May Street


Omemee • King Street from Queen Street to Sturgeon Road

BE NICE ... CLEAR THE ICE

Snow and ice on sidewalks can impact the ability of people to get around safely – including mail carriers, pedestrians with service animals, walkers, wheelchairs and strollers. Residents and businesses are responsible and required to clear the way around their property. • Property owners are required to completely remove snow and/or ice from sidewalks adjacent to their property • Do not push or blow snow from your property back on to the street. • Where possible, pile snow on the right side of your driveway (as you face the street) so that cleared snow does not get moved back onto your driveway by the snow plow. • Reduce the height of the snow bank at the end of your property by shoveling snow back further onto your property. This improves visibility when entering or exiting your driveway. • For safety reasons, if there is a fire hydrant in front of your home or business, remove snow and ice around the fire hydrant.

CHORISTERS’ CORNER

By April Scott

After a very successful concert with almost a full house, and no shortbread left, the Choristers are taking a mini-Christmas concert to local nursing homes and Ross Memorial Hospital. They are hoping to bring a little Yuletide cheer to residents, patients and visitors. This tradition was started many years ago and the Choristers all enjoy the visits. The annual Christmas Party is coming up shortly and it’s always a lot of fun. The Christmas tree is trimmed with personalized decorations. Each chorister brings their own decoration with their name and date of joining the choir. One of these days we might have to find a larger tree as people come and go, but the decorations don’t! This year we will be taking part in The ShoeBox project - a very worthwhile cause. Shoe boxes filled with comfort items are collected for homeless women. From Bob Plummer, our Director; Vivian Hetherington, our accompanist; Laura Plummer, our story lady; and all the Choristers, we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

THE KAWARTHA PROMOTER’S YEAR IN REVIEW

By Deb Crossen

As we wind down 2017, I thought it would be time to celebrate the last year we’ve had here at The Kawartha Promoter.

LETS TALK ABOUT YOUR INSURANCE sponsored by

Stewart Morrison Insurance

Holiday Fire Safety Tips

Stewart Morrison Insurance met with Karl Gleason Fire Prevention Inspector with the City of Kawartha Lakes, to learn how to keep the holiday season safe with these important Fire Prevention tips: 1. Never go to bed without working smoke alarms. Check smoke alarms at least once a month, even if hardwired into your house. Make sure to change the batters 2x a year when we change our clocks 2. 85% of fatal fires happen in the residential home, 35% of those did not have working smoke alarms at the time of ignition 3. The deep fried turkey fad is delicious, but make sure to thaw the turkey first, and take precautions when cooking with open flame. Make sure the location is clear, and perhaps take this outdoors, and out of the garage where many flammable materials reside 4. Think about making the change to flameless candles. They have improved in look and do not cause a risk if you forget to blow them out/turn them off 5. Prevent your real Christmas Tree from drying out; make sure you water it it least once a day. If a real Christmas Tree were to catch fire, the room will become untenable, or unliveable, in ONE minute, making a exit through this room almost impossible. Have an anterior exist strategy ready. 6. Never use old christmas lights, make sure they are CSA approved. It is worth the money to upgrade for safely 7. Remember to turn off all lights before heading to bed. Ideally, only have lights on when you are in the room Here at Stewart Morrison Insurance, we do not want you to have a claim anytime of the year, but especially over the holidays. Have a safe and happy holiday season.

NEW COALITION CHAIR

Heather Kirby, general manager of Kawartha Lakes Food Source, is the new chair of the Kawartha Lakes Food Coalition. She was elected to the position at the coalition’s recent AGM. “Food is used to celebrate and is a common thread for all,” says Kirby. “The Coalition will continue to support local food production; keeping our land sustainable to ensure the best growing conditions; and that each resident of the City of Kawartha Lakes has access to nutritious food through advocacy and awareness.” She says she is excited to carry on the great work of the Food Coalition, and looks forward to working with partners to continue building a resilient community. Kirby replaces Mike Perry. Executive Director of the Kawartha Lakes Family Health Team, Perry led the food coalition through its early years as its first chair. “Agribusiness and the food sector are key here in our area both economically and for our health,” says Perry. “We all need access to safe, local, nutritious food.” The Coalition also helped get Lindsay included in the Basic Income Pilot Program. The Kawartha Lakes Food Coalition is an open network of more than 100 Kawartha Lakes residents and organizations involved in the local food system. Working to build a just, sustainable and economically viable food system within Kawartha Lakes, it includes farmers, processors, distributors, retailers, gardeners, restaurants, farmers’ markets, food banks, health professionals, policy makers and just plain food lovers.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) There’s lots going on that might expand your horizons during the coming days, dear Aquarius, so get to know your neighbours and their celebrations: the Winter Solstice on Dec. 21 marking the darkest day of the year; Hanukkah which continues until Dec. 20; and Kwanzaa from Dec. 26 to Jan. 1 honouring African culture and traditions. It will be enlightening! Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) “Stretching his hand up to reach the stars, too often man forgets the flowers at his feet.”: Jeremy Bentham. This is a lovely reminder, Pisces, to stay grounded! Don’t forget the beauty that is already a part of your life, while you search for more wonders. Aries (March 21 to April 20) You still have time to evaluate the meaning of the holiday season, dear Aries. Every year you tell yourself that this year will be different, and you will spend less on material items, and more on making memories with family and friends. This year, do it! Even one less little shallow moment given over to one little meaningful moment is worth it. Taurus (April 21 to May 21) “Even though you have ten thousand fields, you can eat no more than one measure of rice a day. Even though your dwelling contains a hundred rooms, you can use but eight feet of space a night.”: Chinese proverb. Seriously think about the message here, Taurus, and count your blessings! Gemini (May 22 to June 22) We’re seeing a little big of romance over the holidays for you, Gemini. Let go, embrace the season, and let it take you wherever you desire! Cancer (June 23 to July 23) With so many familial obligations over the next

few weeks, and so many gatherings, it could be easy to speak “out of turn”. Hold your tongue and count to ten before blurting out something that could be hurtful to either yourself or someone else. Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) All of sudden, life has become very busy for you – and it’s not just because of the holiday season. Your job duties have grown. Don’t let them overwhelm you, and whatever you do, don’t procrastinate when it comes to getting things done! Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) With all the hustle and bustle of Christmas, don’t forget to look ahead to the New Year, Virgo. Plan some me-time just for you to ‘recuperate’ from the holidays. It will be significant. Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) There’s no doubt about it, Libra: December can be tough! It feels like there is so much to do, and no time to do it. So, what to do? Focus on the important things, and keep repeating: “I will try my best, but if I fail – it’s no big deal!” Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) While the darkest days are ahead, Scorpio, never fear! They will not last and, before you know it, the sun will show its warmth, the days will grow longer, and the light will spread outward. Just keep promising yourself that it will happen! Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Now is not the time to be worrying about what COULD happen but HAS NOT happened! You never know when the winds will change, and what you are fretting over may not come true. So, relax a little! Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan 20) Finally, the time has come for you to put up your feet and enjoy life! You’ve been swamped lately with commitments – but, just in time for the holidays, life is going to be a lot less hectic. Lucky you!


DEDICATION CEREMONY

By The Chapman Family (David, Cathy, Christy, Jason, Amanda & Matt)

In November 2003, our eldest son, Shaun, lost his life in a car accident at age 17, on the way to his hockey game. (We thank God, friend Justin Simington survived.) Grieving friends decided to raise funds in Shaun’s honour for the creation of a skateboard park in Kinmount. We were encouraged by this gift in his memory; together with the many youth and caring families in the surrounding areas, a committee was formed, then born! The committee worked hard and raised over $20,000, but alas no location for a skateboard park could be found. After some years a bursary was created in Shaun's memory for a Fenelon Falls Secondary School graduating student who demonstrates good citizenship and a memorial trophy was donated to Shaun's hockey team, the Highland Storm. Eventually in 2016 the

bulk of the funds were used to supply accessible playground equipment at Austin Sawmill Park in Kinmount. We as a family, felt delighted to finally see that the funds raised had been put to a worthy cause. We know our Shaun was such a giver and caring person and he would have been so pleased that we gave to help other families needs, some whom we knew well, and now their needs were being met. On June 11, 2017 a huge crowd came to Austin Sawmill Park, including family and friends. During the celebration, Shaun’s Grandma, Loretta Tait said, “Now, today we see the opportunity to

bring happiness to others out of our grief.” Mom, Cathy stated, “We thank God for each of you and may you all know these kind acts have helped us in our healing.” Finishing off the event, sister Christy shared, “Having such a supportive community behind us, made us not feel alone.” We finalized with a dedication prayer by our friend and Pastor, Dave Sedore, which was followed by the cutting of the ribbon by me, Cathy, Shaun’s mom, supported by all those present. On behalf of our family, we humbly thank each and everyone of you! Visit us on Facebook to view photos and videos of the day!

ROOTS ‘N’RAMBLINGS Winterscaping By Linda Friend

Winterscaping is a new term for a tradition as old as “Decking the Halls” - not just with boughs of holly but sprigs of mistletoe and cone clusters, too. It’s a fine example of economy and repurposing. Start with a sturdy container that won’t succumb to freezing temperatures and is large enough to withstand buffeting winds. Summer planters work well; clip off the plant growth and use the root ball to secure your greenery. You can also place blocks (not peanuts) of styrofoam in the bottom of the container and cover

with a 10- to 12-inch layer of sand. Stroll through a woodland or along a roadside with clippers and an open mind. Weeds like golden rod with their attractive galls (bulb shapes in the middle of the stem), cattails, thistles and grape vine, all work well. Select as many evergreen varieties as you can: cedar, elegant holly, blue spruce, balsam fir and white pine. Stems of red dogwood and branches of white birch add structure and colour. Cut a generous amount; then double it. You’ll be amazed at how much you need for a full planter. Now check your garden. Hydrangea flowers, sedum heads, lavender sprigs and ornamental grasses stand proudly through these early snows. To add bling, spray your treasures silver, gold or red. Sift through old Christmas decorations for a suitable ornament or bow. Begin your arrangement with the bones - sturdy branches and boughs. You’ll want a tall centre, a

billowing skirt, and lots of filler branches between. Clip off the lower twigs and cut each branch to a slanted point. Plunge the greens securely into the sand or soil. Remember, your container must stand through all types of weather. Wire soft stems like sedum or grass to a 6 dogwood branch. Save the delicate blossoms (like hydrangeas) for last. Cover empty soil surfaces with cones. Sprinkle a little water on your porch or deck before placing the container, to freeze it down and stop your masterpiece from becoming a road-hazard tumbleweed.

BAD NEWS/GOOD NEWS

By Pamela VanMeer, Kawartha411

WHAT DO YOU SAY? By Pamela VanMeer

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays? Another Christmas is upon us and with the glad tidings, jolly jingles and ho ho ho comes the yearly debate on whether it’s okay to say Merry Christmas. Bah Humbug! Christians in Canada mark the birth of Jesus on December 25, which is known as Christmas Day. It is a day of celebration when many Canadians exchange gifts and enjoy eating way too much food. It’s a magical time for kids who look forward to a visit from Santa Claus. Christmas has been celebrated here for hundreds of years. Some say the first mention of Christmas in Canada was in 1641, when Jesuit missionaries working with the Huron Tribe in Georgian Bay, wrote a Christmas Carol in the Huron language about the nativity story, steeped in Native traditions. Over the last few years though, as Canada has become even more multicultural, non-Christians and even some Christians say that using the term ”Merry Christmas” is not politically correct. In 2005 and 2006 large corporations began shying away from the term and used “Happy Holidays” instead. In 2007 a public school in Ottawa planned to have the children in its primary choir sing a version of the song “Silver Bells” with the word “Christmas” replaced by “festive.” A few years later another Ottawa school decided to cancel a Christmas concert in favour of a “non-denominational” February Fest. The school told The Huffington Post that the intent behind the decision was “inclusiveness” for certain minority cultures. A craft night replaced the Christmas Concert. In fact, many schools, even in the Kawarthas, no longer hold a traditional Christmas concert. I remember as a child dressing up as an angel (it didn’t take much for me to become angelic) and practising for the Christmas play. It was a really special time of year. When I became a mother, I looked forward to seeing my daughter doing the same thing. Now my grandson will miss out on that tradition and that makes me sad. Sad for him and me and all of us, because even if you aren’t a Christian, is there anything wrong with learning about someone

else’s beliefs? Maybe even celebrating with them and learning about tolerance and kindness. That’s really what religion is all about. The good news is Christmas has evolved. It’s evolved into a time of year when normally busy families come together to enjoy each other’s company, do things as a family and just slow down for a while. My sister inlaw is the glue that binds our family during the holidays. She has a big family gathering for Santa Day in Fenelon Falls, we all watch the night-time parade and then enjoy some of her amazing homemade chili and some vino. On Boxing Day, she hosts a big family Christmas where we laugh, reminisce and eat turkey until we can’t move. Then we exchange a few small gifts. We are Christians so we also mark the birth of Christ by going to Church over the holidays. Non-Christians are free to skip that part -- we aren’t offended. Polling firm Angus Reid Global did an online survey in 2013 to get a sense of how Canadians felt about the term “holidays” versus “Christmas,” and celebrating Christmas in general. They say they found that even the non-Christians polled said they plan to do Christmas-like activities, such as spending time with family and friends and giving back to the community. When it came to using the term “holidays” versus “Christmas” the results were surprising. “Overwhelmingly, in every province across the country, we saw that Canadians do say that they prefer to think of, and they do think of, this time of year as Christmas. Over 90 percent of those polled in B.C., Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Ontario, and the Atlantic provinces prefer the more-traditional term,” Sachi Kurl of Angus Reid told CBC news. Christmas time makes us all better people. We give to those less fortunate, we feed the hungry and the poor, we suddenly become more tolerant and yes, jolly. Merry Christmas!

CELL PHONES, SOCIAL MEDIA, AND ANXIETY

By Kirk Winter

In the last two years, new clinical studies including one from University of Chicago are making a direct link between “intense engagement” with cell phones, and aggression and depression. However, the strongest connection is made with anxiety. Anxiety rates are exploding among those 25 and under. It is time we recognize the elephant in the room that is a major cause of the problem, especially among young women. It is the phone. If someone you know feels the need to respond immediately to every buzz of their phone, is constantly checking their phone even when it does not ring or vibrate, ignores what is happening in real time and prefers the virtual world of texts and social media, or they feel anxious when they are away from their phones, they are defined by experts in the field as “addicts”, and prone to damaging rates of anxiety and mental illness. In the University of Chicago study, four in 10 “intensively engaged” cell phone users report chronic and persistent anxiety. Millennials today are constantly on their phones, even when they aren’t supposed to be texting, sharing, trolling or scrolling. Cyberbulling is rampant. People say the most hurtful things online that they would not dream of saying in person. After relationship break-ups, social platforms are often used to lash out and attack those who did the breaking up. It can go on for months. Online success and acceptance are judged by “likes”. Those who have Facebook, Twitter or Instagram agonize over what to post. Hours are spent pruning their online identities as they attempt to project an idealized image. Home photo shopping is commonplace. Sexting, the exchange of very personal and private images with a special other through the phone, is another source of social anxiety online, especially when those images are wrongfully released to the general public. University studies in South Korea have shown that those pictures seldom stay private, and come back to haunt the person for years in the future affecting new romantic relationships and employment opportunities. The breakup text is now commonplace and devastating to the person who receives it. There is no face-to-face discussion or phone call, leaving the abandoned partner with no closure and imagining the worst about themselves. When I was teaching, I witnessed young women burst into tears when some classless fool dumped them over text during the middle of the school day. Studies have suggested that access to smart phones should be delayed like you would delay the use of alcohol. No current study supports cell phone access before high school. Very few young people have $600 for a relatively current smart phone. They only have them because we, as parents, have purchased them and are helping pay for their phone plans. We are

helping to create the anxiety, and an addiction, in our kids that we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemies. It is time we realize the impact phone usage is having on our young people’s mental health, and treat it as the public health crisis that it is, and the sooner we start the better.

THE ENGINE THAT DRIVES DUNSFORD

By Kirk Winter

In 1982, 20 civic-minded individuals gathered at the old arena in Dunsford to form a service club that would benefit Dunsford as a whole. Out of that meeting was born the Dunsford and District Lions Club. In the last 35 years, this club has taken on tasks and achieved goals far beyond what people thought their modest membership to be capable of. Lions Club International has encouraged member clubs to take on worthy local and international projects, and the Dunsford Lions have done just that. Michael Jancsik, the current club president, explained that the international commitment of the Lions clubs across North America remains strong. During this past year with so many natural disasters, the Dunsford Lions have raised a considerable amount of money for hurricane relief in the Caribbean. As well, the club has been a sponsor of the Leader Dog School that provides guide dogs for those in need. They have also contributed to a Lion’s initiative to plant a million trees worldwide. Preventing blindness has been a passion for the Lions since their inception. Over the last 10 years, Central Ontario Lions alone have collected more than 500,000 pairs of surplus eyewear for distribution to those less fortunate. Walter Jancsik, four-time Dunsford Lions club president, shared that the club still plays a major role in Dunsford and area. Their many initiatives include helping sponsor the Dunsford Elementary breakfast program; building a cabin at, and helping

maintain Camp Kirk in Kirkfield, a facility that caters to individuals with developmental disabilities; and participating in local parades. The club is also well known for their Mothers’ Day brunch and car show that grows more popular every year. The crown jewel for the Dunsford Lions Club is probably their continued support for the Dunsford Community Center, for which the club helped raise money to build in the early 1990s. Walter says most people don’t realize the Community Center is not owned by the City. Rather, it is run by a volunteer community board who take no money in lieu of their many hours work. The Center has become an anchor in Dunsford for hosting dances, weddings, and activities for seniors. Both Jancsiks stress that the club is on the lookout for a few good members, and anyone interested in joining the Dunsford Lions should phone Michael Jancsik at 705-879-7428.

the collection of new, unwrapped gifts. They ask that toy donations be placed in designated barrels by Dec. 15, so they can be sorted and distributed by volunteers in the week before Christmas. The Kinsmen Toy Drive has been in operation for 70 years. In the beginning, the club collected used and broken toys to repair and distribute to local kids in need of Christmas cheer. Now they put an estimated 1,200 hours a year into this community service. The outreach is impressive: in 2016, over 800 local children benefited from program. The Kinsmen recognize that the drive wouldn’t be possible without the generous donation of toys, financial and in-kind support from the community, including local businesses and BobFM. For info, contact a Lindsay Kinsmen member or email lindsaykinsmen@hotmail.com. Tax receipts are available for donations of $10 or more. If your family would like to receive a toy from the Lindsay Kinsmen Toy Drive, you can apply through City of Kawartha Lakes Social Services: 705-324-9870, ext. 3299.

STUDENTS GET CURVE LAKE PERSPECTIVE

By Jessica Kellow

Grade 7 and 8 students from Bobcaygeon Public School visited Curve Lake in November to gain a First Nations’ perspective on controversial issues like the history of residential schools, and the wild rice harvest. Students started the day at the Whetung Ojibwa Centre, where they met Anne Taylor, the Cultural Archivist for Curve Lake Cultural Centre. Everyone participated in the “Blanket Exercise,” which helped illustrate the horrible conditions that First Nations people have been forced to endure since European settlers arrived in Canada. From there, students split into two groups. One group left to visit James Whetung, owner of Black Duck Wild Rice. The others stayed to talk to Freddy Taylor, an artist at the Whetung Centre who survived attending 10 years of residential school as a child. Freddy spoke emotionally about being beaten up by so-called “teachers,” and finally coming home to a family where he felt he no longer belonged. Students had lunch, and then set off to speak with James Whetung. As students gathered around a small fire, Mr. Whetung burned tobacco and began to talk about his start as a wild-rice harvester. He spoke of the importance of wild rice to the First Nations people, both as a tradition and health-wise. He touched on why he is permitted to grow and harvest the wild rice and the controversy surrounding him. He gave students a tour of his processing plant,

pointing out different machines, one of which he had built himself. Students ended the trip with a tour through Curve Lake First Nation School, which teaches close to 50 students attending grades K-3. Sage was burnt in the entrance as Tammy Taylor, the school principal, spoke of the importance of the native language in their teachings. “Instead of being taught French, students are given lessons on our native language, Ojibwe,” she said. Eventually, it was time to return home, and students boarded the bus with new knowledge of the native culture. The trip was an important source of information for students to use, as they will now work to complete the presentation piece for their native inquiry project. Students have been working with Rodney SmithMerkley and Brenda Wall from the Bobcaygeon Truth and Reconciliation Group to gain an understanding of the issues the Native people are still facing today. The students are working on inquiry projects into a topic that interests them. Jessica Kellow is a Grade 8 student at Bobcaygeon Public School.

A DIFFERENT KIND OF CHRISTMAS

By Kirk Winter

While I never mind the shopping - buying presents for everyone on my gift list and the multiple trips to the mall - I cringe when my January VISA bill arrives, and the holiday season has to be paid for. There’s a worldwide movement afoot to replace traditional gift giving with tokens of our affection that are more personal, more environmentally and socially responsible, and less taxing on the pocketbook.

Some popular options include: • A “make-or-bake” gift exchange among siblings. Nothing beats homemade for the holidays. • Some families pool their gift-giving money and sponsor a child overseas, or donate to support microbusinesses that can benefit the child’s entire family for years to come. • Time is often the greatest gift of all. Create coupons that offer free babysitting, yard cleaning, homework assistance or even just a neck rub. These are much appreciated stocking stuffers. • One of my favourite gifts is offering to teach someone a skill you have. It could be as simple as how to get the most out of your new Smartphone. I’d love someone to teach me how to hang a door properly. • Gift fair-trade coffee, tea or chocolate. Support companies whose sales support farmers and artisans in more challenged parts of the world. • Shop at garage sales and second-hand stores, and regift what you find there. You’re often stunned by the quality and minimal price of goods you find. Even better, there is no wasteful packaging the second time around. • Make personalized cards from recycled materials. • Avoid commercial wrapping paper, ribbons, bows and tape, which are often not recyclable; use gift bags, tea towels or nice boxes that are eco-friendly. • Assign a $10 spending limit for gifts and see the lovely, useful and heartfelt things friends and family come up with. • Volunteer your time (or make a donation) at a local

As the Grinch discovered so many years ago, Christmas “doesn’t come from a store.” Happy alternative gift giving from The Kawartha Promoter family, to you and yours.

CARING IN A SHOEBOX

There’s still time to make a donation to The Shoebox Project for Shelters, benefitting local women who are homeless or at risk. The idea is simple: pack a shoebox full of gift items (valued at about $50), that would help any woman feel special, drop it off at three locations – Paradiso in Bobcaygeon, Watson’s in Fenelon Falls and Cathy Allen in Lindsay before December 21. The Shoebox Project will deliver it to a local women’s shelter or community organization in time for the holidays. Last year, the City of Kawartha Lakes Shoebox Project delivered hundreds of gifts to three local organizations. Community members interested in donating a Shoebox or participating in other ways can visit www.shoeboxproject.com for more information. The Shoebox Project for Shelters, supported by Dream, was founded in 2011 by Caroline, Jessica, Katy and Vanessa Mulroney. The Shoebox Project now delivers over 36,000 gifts annually to hundreds of communities across North America.

REAL CHRISTMAS TREES ARE A WIN-WIN-WIN

By Jackie Donaldson

Real or fake - which is better? If your family struggles with this perennial Christmas tree question, here are some arguments in favour of a live tree. Beyond the snowy family outing and festive aroma of a live tree, think employment. Christmas tree farms - which are numerous locally - provide an important income to area families. It’s a bigger industry than many realize: last year more than 500 farmers in Ontario alone provided one million trees for our holiday enjoyment. For those of an environmental bent, it’s nice to know that tree farms provide a number of crucial benefits. One acre of trees produces enough oxygen for 18 people, but the carbon dioxide emitted by our cars, planes and homes are soaked up. Buying a natural Christmas tree is a win-win-win; for our economy, for our environment, and just as important, for that extra special magic it can provide on Christmas morning.

FOOD BANK DONATION

This year, 1867 Confederation Log & Timber Frame was pleased to make their annual donation to the Bobcaygeon Helps Food Bank in the amount of $2,500. Proceeds from the company’s seminars, held throughout the year are donated each year in time for Christmas.

WEIRD CHRISTMAS

You thought your family tree was a little nutty at the holidays? We’ve put together some of the weird Christmas traditions from around the world. Japan In many countries, the Christmas turkey will grace our table, but in Japan, it’s the Colonel’s Chicken! It started with a marketing campaign four decades ago and now, KFC is associated with Christmas in the minds of Japanese families. More than 240,000 barrels of chicken will

be sold during Christmas in Japan, five to 10 time the normal monthly sales. Philippines Eighty percent of the population of the Philippines is Christian, so their celebrations last into January. Children leave their brightly polished shoes and freshly washed socks on the window sill for gifts left by the Three Kings when they pass through their houses at night. The “Feast of the Three Kings” marks the end of the Christmas celebrations.

Scandinavia According to Norse mythology, the god Thor rode around in a chariot pulled by goats. So today, not only do Scandinavians put cute little goat ornaments on their tree, but some towns erect giant statues of the Yule Goat. Sometimes people make them of straw and set them on fire in celebration. Iceland Oh, those Icelanders have a great sense of humour. Their Yule Cat (or Jólakötturinn), lurks in the snow and, according to legend, eats people who haven’t received new clothes for Christmas. So if you want to avoid a cat-astrophy, don your new duds when visiting Iceland at Christmas. Venezuela Folks in Venezuela have a “wheely” fun time at Christmas with their tradition of donning roller skates to go to Church for early morning services. Sometimes roads are closed off so skaters are safe from cars. Germany It’s a very old Christmas Eve tradition in Germany to hide a pickle (of the ornament variety) in the branches of the Christmas tree. In the morning, the child who finds it first gets a special gift from Santa, while the first adult traditionally gets good luck for the coming year. South Africa Looking for a different appetizer for your holiday guests, take a cue from South Africans. They choose to snack on caterpillars of the Emperor moth. But don’t worry, they are deep fried first – because everything tastes better deep fried! Australia With temperatures in the 80s for Christmas Day, our friends “down under” celebrate on the beach! Santa often drops in on his surfboard and carollers gather to sing by candlelight. Mexico For more than 115 years, there’s an odd, yet creative Christmas tradition in the Oaxaca region of Mexico. It’s called La Noche de Rabanos, or Night of the Radishes. Artisans compete by

carving oversized root veggies and their displays have attracted worldwide attention. Norway People in Norway hide their brooms on Christmas Eve. It’s not to get out of doing chores, but rather a superstition. This tradition dates back centuries when people believed that witches and evil spirits came out on Christmas Eve looking for brooms to ride on.

GIVE THE GIFT OF CONFIDENCE

By Jackie Donaldson

What would it be like for a young person to find a gift of adventure and self-confidence under the tree this Christmas? In the spirit of the holidays, Scouts Canada wants to provide just that, by encouraging local residents to donate to their “No One Left Behind” program. The “No One Left Behind” program enables all youth to participate in Scouts by financially subsidizing membership and participation costs such as uniforms, handbooks, outdoor equipment and camp for those who need it. “Every young person deserves an equal opportunity to enjoy what Scouts offers,” says Andrew Price, CEO of Scouts Canada. “From outdoor adventures to first time experiences and important life skills, this exposure helps youth develop into confident and capable adults.”

Scouts Canada offers boys, girls, and young adults - ages 5 to 26 - the opportunity to discover the best in themselves through experiences they wouldn’t get elsewhere. Adventures range from international trips, white water rafting and rock climbing, to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) exploration. For more, go to scouts.ca.

SALVATION ARMY NEEDS HELP

By Pamela VanMeer, Kawartha411

The Salvation Army in Fenelon Falls, Bobcaygeon and Coboconk needs your help with the Kettle Campaign this year. Officials say they are in desperate need of volunteers to look after a kettle for just a few hours at a time in all of these locations. Their funding for the entire year comes from the Christmas mailers and the Christmas Kettle Campaign. Money donated goes toward the operation of the food bank, clothing furniture and emergency assistance for residents, Christmas Hampers and toys along with Childrens’ Programs. Requests for Christmas Hampers are up by about 60 percent this year. To volunteer, please call 705-887-3031. Helping out qualifies for community hours for students as well.

After a piano prelude by Elaine Fisher, Drew Gauthier and Emma Smith of Hendren’s offered a welcome. Reverend Rodney Smith-Merkley of Trinity United Church and Reverend Ann Blane of Knox Presbyterian Church led the prayers, read the Scriptures and offered Reflection. Carols filled the hall with sounds of joy for the season. Then one by one, those in attendance lit a candle in memory of those who have passed. The candles were extinguished together at the end of the service.

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Jingle Bell Rock

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Toys in ev’ry store, But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be On your own front door.

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square In the frosty air.

A pair of hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots Is the wish of Barney and Ben; Dolls that will talk and will go for a walk Is the hope of Janice and Jen; And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again.

What a bright time, it’s the right time To rock the night away

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas Ev’rywhere you go; Take a look in the five-and-ten, glistening once again With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas Ev’rywhere you go; There’s a tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well, The sturdy kind that doesn’t mind the snow.

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun Now the jingle hop has be

Jingle bell time is a swell time To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet Jingle around the clock Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet That’s the jingle bell, That’s the jingle bell, That’s the jingle bell rock

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas; Soon the bells will start, And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing Right within your heart.

Sleigh Ride

It doesn’t show signs of stopping And I’ve bought some corn for popping The lights are turned way down low Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Outside the snow is falling And friends are calling “Yoo Hoo” Come on, it’s lovely weather For a sleigh ride together with you

When we finally kiss good night How I’ll hate going out in the storm! But if you’ll really hold me tight All the way home I’ll be warm

Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap let’s go Let’s look at the snow We’re riding in a wonderland of snow

The fire is slowly dying And, my dear, we’re still goodbying But as long as you love me so Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap it’s grand Just holding your hand We’re gliding along with the song Of a wintry fairy land

Oh the weather outside is frightful But the fire is so delightful And since we’ve no place to go Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Just hear those sleigh bells jingle-ing Ring ting tingle-ing too Come on, it’s lovely weather For a sleigh ride together with you

Our cheeks are nice and rosy And comfy cozy are we We’re snuggled up together like two Birds of a feather would be

Fenelon Falls boy makes big donation to the Salvation Army: The Fenelon Falls Salvation Army Christmas Hamper Program has already seen a 60 percent increase in the number of families requesting help this holiday season. 10-yearold Landen Robinson took it upon himself to organize a food and toy drive in the Hickory Beach community. He also collected beer cans to return for the cash. It comes at a time when the need is greater than ever. (Story and photo by Pamela VanMeer, Kawartha411)

BE A GOOD HOST

‘Tis the season for holiday cheer, but it’s also the season for alcohol consumption, social gatherings, and potential dangers. Be a good host and make sure your guests are being responsible if they’re drinking. Here are some tips: Offer a non-alcoholic punch for designated drivers If you see one of your guests is overdoing it, make sure they have a ride home or offer them a room with you for the night. Always serve food at your parties – but nothing too salty, which will make your guests more thirsty. Consider “cutting off” serving alcohol at a specific time and bring out the coffee and desserts. As the host, you should also limit your drinking, so you can monitor your guests’ consumption. Everyone wants to have a good time and be a good host, and ensuring that your guests arrive home safely and protecting the safety of others.

Horoscopes – Looking Ahead to 2018

be discovered, Gemini! We predict 2018 will be your best year yet! Don’t sit back and wait for all this goodness to come to you -- write your own story; set your own rules; make your own happiness; fix your eyes on the farthest star!

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) 2018 could see an excess of stress in your life, Aquarius. Here’s our advice: DO NOT worry endlessly! Set aside 15 minutes each day and tell yourself that is the only time you are allowed to worry. This can be an effective antidote to the constant self-nagging that will only drag you down further.

Cancer (June 23 to July 23) Tranquility is the key word for you, Cancer, in 2018. You may have to work somewhat diligently to find it, but you will, and it will make the world of difference in your life and lead you down roads untravelled, yet pleasing to the mind and soul.

Melodie McCullough

Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) Your health will be your major concern in the coming year, Pisces. Please take it seriously. Learn how to handle stress – it can be the one of the most destructive causes of illness. And, we can’t emphasize this enough: watch your weight; eat nutritiously; exercise; sleep well; avoid toxic people – and, most importantly, enjoy life! Aries (March 21 to April 20) A spiritual path awaits you in the months ahead, Aries – a journey that will comfort you and confound you at the same time, forcing you to ask important questions and to search for meaningful answers. Reach out to others – but, remember, only you alone can find the truth you seek. Taurus (April 21 to May 21) Taurus, your love life will take a dramatic turn in 2018. We are not sure how this will unfold – it could mean loss, but you will be blessed with a brighterlooking future by this time next year. Gemini (May 22 to June 22) There’s a new ‘you’ waiting to

Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) The New Year and the months ahead will bring a significant need to re-examine your job and where you are headed with your career, Leo. It may mean a whole new direction for you. It may mean returning to school to pursue new possibilities. Don’t consider it a liability – it will prove well-worth the trouble in the long run. Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) Your connection to nature will take an unusual turn in the year ahead, Virgo. It may envelop you and nourish you in a way you have not experienced before. Welcome its ability to calm you down and keep you grounded. Be open to its wonders and believe in its gifts. Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) Get ready to experience the joy of children, Libra, because somehow, somewhere there will be little ones that will bounce their way into your heart in 2018. Such delight! Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) We see lots of fun times in the year ahead for you, Scorpio. Parties, family gatherings, reunions with old friends, the making of new friends – all the things that make life worth living. So have yourself a merry old time! Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Many and varied opportunities lie in store for you, dear Sag, and every one will be adventurous and exciting – if you are open-minded and let them be. Don’t focus too much on the future or where these adventures will take you -- enjoy the presentday moments and laugh a lot. You will look back and savour them some day. Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan 20) Next year, life will continue much as it has in 2017 – only you will be more aware of how to handle the curve balls thrown at you. You will know yourself better; you will slow down and embrace every single day; your authentic self will shine through! Be there!

Sincere thanks

to our valued clients & friends. Best wishes for a joyous & happy holiday season.

NEW YEAR’S TRADITIONS

Many of us will celebrate New Year’s Eve with friends, enjoying some good food, wine and looking forward into 2018. There are some other customs around the world for welcoming in the New Year. England The English custom for welcoming New Year is full of hospitality and warmth. They believe that the first guest for the year will bring fortune for them. He should be a male, should enter through the front door and bear some traditional gifts like loaf for the kitchen, drink for the head of the family and coal to light the fire, otherwise he is not allowed. Denmark In Denmark, residents keep a pile of dishes, all broken, in front of the door. For this they save old dishes and people usually throw these on the friends’ doors during New Year. This symbolizes friendship and brotherhood and they believe the one with most dishes outside, has the most friends. The Danish can often be found standing on chairs at the stroke of midnight, jumping into the air to leave bad spirits behind and landing into a fresh new year.

Spain In Spain, the New Year’s tradition for good luck revolves around grapes. If you can manage to stuff 12 grapes in your mouth at midnight you’ve achieved good luck for the next year. Puerto Rico You may want to grab an umbrella while celebrating the New Year in Puerto Rico. Residents are known to fill buckets of water and throw the water out their window at midnight to ward off evil spirits.

Merry Christmas from all of us at the Full Cup

China The Chinese have a unique way of celebrating New Year, where every front door of a house is painted in red which symbolizes happiness and good fortune.

Health & Wellness POLL SAYS HOSPITAL CAREGIVERS RISK VIOLENCE

Nurses, personal support workers, and other direct-care providers are at great risk of physical violence in the workplace, according to a recent poll of Ontario hospital staff. The hospital division of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU/CUPE) polled 1,976 members working in hospitals in seven Ontario communities earlier this fall. Their poll reports that 68 percent of registered practical nurses (RPNs) and personal support workers (PSWs) in Ontario said they’d experienced at least one incident of physical violence in the hospital in the last year, such as punching, hitting, or having things thrown at them. Nearly 20 percent said they’ve been physically assaulted nine times or more in the last year, and 42 percent report having experienced at least one incident in the past year of sexual harassment or assault. In addition, 44 percent of RPNs and PSWs do not feel their employers protect them and their co-workers effectively from violence. OCHU/CUPE is calling on the federal and provincial governments for legislative and legal changes to protect health care staff. See epidemicofviolence. ca.

CELEBRATE NURSING SISTERS

Submitted by RMH

Over the course of the First World War, some 2,504 women volunteered to serve overseas with the Canadian Army Medical Corps as Nursing Sisters. Not only were the Canadian Nursing Sisters the only nurses of the Allied forces to hold the rank of officers, but because of the difference in time zones they were also the first women in Canadian history to vote in a federal election exactly 100 years ago in December, 1917. Nursing Sisters Alma Finnie and Oda Weldon were among the very first nurses to cast their ballots, while stationed at the Ontario Military Hospital in Orpington, England. Both had once called the Kawartha Lakes area home, with Alma having briefly attended Lindsay Collegiate Institute, and Oda being a native of Oakwood, Ontario. They were among the over 24 women from this community who served as nurses during the First World War, a number of whom were trained at the Ross Memorial Hospital. Those graduating from the hospital’s rigorous three-year training program before serving overseas included Laura Curry, Winnifred Hardy, Matilda Mann, Katherine McKinnon, and Olive Williamson. The First World War was a significant catalyst for not only the professionalization of nursing but also for the advancement of female participation within the political sphere. Canadian women returned from war expecting the same rights in peacetime as they had been granted in wartime. Their Votes Counted a fully-bilingual travelling exhibition developed by the Victoria County Historical Society in partnership with

AVIVA FUND REWARDS COMMUNITY CARE

The Community Care Health & Care Network has been awarded $87,000 from the Aviva Canada Community Fund to help support local residents who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Community Care’s Hospice Services application for grief support funding was one of 10 projects to receive funding through the Aviva Community Fund. The winners were announced earlier this month on Aviva’s website. The $87,000 proposal for grief support services was one of more than 500 submitted to the competition from all across Canada. 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 by government sources. The grief support proposal received a significant boost from many members of the public who cast online votes in support of the funding proposal in October. Over the 10-day period, #GrieveNotAlone received more than 26,000 votes from supporters. The public vote was one criteria used by Aviva to assess the funding proposals. By placing in the top five projects in the Community Health category, the submission moved to the final round of Aviva consideration. “Support from fundraising and development initiatives is required to continue operating our programs at no cost to clients,” said Ryan Alexander, Manager of Community Care Hospice Services. The $87,000 proposal represents the annual cost for Community Care to present grief support, he said.

IT’S NOT AN AGE THING

According to a recent report from the CDC, nearly 10 percent of millennials (those born between approximately 1976 and 2004) have some degree of hearing loss. The primary cause of this hearing damage is loud noise. While previous generations were mostly exposed to loud noise in work situations, millennials and younger children receive most of their exposure to loud noise at home. So what exactly is the problem? While household chores might cause hearing loss when tools and appliances reach 85 decibels for extended periods, it only takes two minutes of loud music played at 110 decibels to cause damage. Common culprits of loud noise in the home include blenders (88 dB), leaf blowers (95 dB), and hairdryers (90 dB). Unfortunately, many people don’t realize they have exposed their hearing to dangerous sound levels until it is too late. Fortunately, today more than ever, people from all walks of life are learning more about their hearing and the ways to protect it. If you or a loved one has suffered hearing impairment due to excessive noise, injury, disease, or the aging process, remember you’ve got a friend here at our clinic. Our goal is a straight-forward one, help the hearing impaired through our expertise, personal service, and the latest technology. P.S. It is not uncommon for the noise levels in fitness classes to reach 110 dB.
