OVER THE BACK FENCE

I grew up in the middle of farm country in Markham, Ontario. This was back in the 70s, when there were more farms than subdivisions. You could easily drive down any of the concession roads and see cows and corn fields as your landscape. Our landlord was the farmer. He had acres and acres of cattle corn, hay and what we called “people corn.” We would spend hours running through the fields, playing our games of hide and seek. If we weren’t home for dinner, my Mom knew where we were. My younger brother was fascinated by the equipment, particularly the hay baler. He begged for the chance to drive it – with help, of course, since he was only 12. The day his wish was granted was a grand day in our house and, I believe, what started his fascination with machinery. He said at the time he wanted to grow up to be a farmer. While that didn’t happen, he certainly learned a lot about work ethic from our friend, the farmer.

BUILD YOUR TRUST AROUND US.

Even though today’s farmers have access to so much more technology to help grow and harvest their crops, nothing can take the place of the dedication required to bring food to our tables. From the earliest of mornings (and think about this when it’s -20C in the winter), dairy farmers are traipsing to the barns to start their day. There’s no “snow day” for them. It used to be that the farm was passed down from generation to generation. The children didn’t think of doing anything else but farming. Unfortunately, in today’s economy and climate, the farms are disappearing or being swallowed up by housing developments. It’s stressful to be a farmer, what with the high cost of doing business. But there are those who persevere, those like Three Forks Farm in Bobcaygeon and McLean Berry Farm in Buckhorn. Sharing a huge part of themselves with those of us who are committed to buying local. Buying locally grown produce and meat products isn’t just a passing fad. It’s a way of life. If you do nothing else this summer, get out to a local farmers’ market and say thanks.

Why place the comfort of your home and family in our hands? We know that building your trust doesn’t come from offering bargain basement prices, flashy promotions, or other fun and games. It comes from being there for you, friendly and professional, every day. We’re British Empire Fuels. We’re here to help.

CHORISTERS’ CORNER

By April Scott

The Choristers are well into practices with some wonderful tunes even if they are very challenging. We had very successful sectional practices the last couple of weeks when we went over some of the more difficult or challenging parts of many songs. The audience will recognize the music and probably sing along at the concert! Bob Plummer recently had a birthday -unfortunately it was missed at practice. So belated Happy Birthday, Bob from us all. It is really good to see people back who have been under the weather. We still have some voices on vacation but I am sure they will be back soon. There is still time to take the plunge and join us - we never turn people away. Just come out some Tuesday evening at the Retirement Suites on West Street in Bobcaygeon where we practice. It all starts at 7pm for a couple of hours with a break when we can have coffee, tea and goodies provided by the Retirement Suites. Give Bob, our Director a call at 705-731-1060. He is very accommodating. Until next time try to keep warm and don’t slip on that ice. Sing in the shower..it’s good for you and think about singing with folks who would love to see you.

Horoscopes February 20 to March 4

By Melodie McCullough

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Beware the “image”, Aquarius. Look behind the exterior face and charm of people. See if you can find out how they treat their family, friends, and even enemies when you are not present. They may not be the person you think they are! Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) It’s a brand New Moon on Feb. 23, Pisces -- just in time to remind you that, just like the moon, you too can start anew. Keep an eye on the night sky, and watch the moon - and you waxing to a fuller brightness! Aries (March 21 to April 20) Time management could be a useful strategy in both your work and home life during this phase, Aries. It is always important to plan and budget your hours to maximize your daily goals. Time can be your best friend. Taurus (April 21 to May 21) Honesty is one of the most respected virtues, dear Taurus. Can you practise it daily? It is sometimes hard to do so, but, at day’s end, it will leave you feeling better about yourself -- and it will earn you the acclaim of others. Gemini (May 22 to June 22) “People who fly into a rage always make a bad landing.”: Will Rogers. It is always best to remain calm when things go wrong, Gemini. When we rage, we lose all insight and reasoning -and where does that take us? To a landing in the dumps! Cancer (June 23 to July 23) We highly recommend a dose of fresh outdoor winter air and an activity that helps others -- both good antidotes to the boredom that can envelop us in February. Go do it, Cancer! Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) Now is the time to focus on one main thing in your life that needs your utmost attention, and not become distracted by minor diversions. You will soon have all the time you need to enjoy the little things. Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) If you are looking for love, Virgo, remember: the best love is the love you can give yourself. Treat yourself as you treat others! Be kind and understanding of your faults -- because you are YOU! Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) What makes you happy, Libra? Can you think of three basic things that you need to be happy -- and then find it in you to be grateful for those three things, without the need to want more? Try it! Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Nothing is permanent in this world, Scorpio. There is always the possibility of learning from the past and moving forward into the future with a fresh outlook and attitude! Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Your work, while demanding, continues to be stellar and will lead to recognition in your field. But you must manage the elusive work/leisure balance, or you will find yourself burning out. Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) “There is peace even in the storm.”: Vincent van Gogh. Yes, Capricorn, when we find ourselves tossing and turning in the darkness of the storm, it is important to search and find the calm and peacefulness that is surely there - somewhere.

There are many ways that you can save every day. We really just need to be more conscious about how much we are spending day to day so we can eliminate some of the little things that continually add up and limit our ability to save for the future. Here are some simple tips to help you get started. • Beware the ambiance and shopping mood that stores work so hard to create. Don’t get enticed to pay more for items just because you are romanced by the surroundings and the staff. • When doing home improvement that requires expensive tools, rent them instead of buying. • Cut down on your phone, cable or satellite TV services. Consider eliminating your land line at home. Beware of all the upgrades and TV bundle services that soon add up to a hefty monthly charge. • Reuse your stuff and find new uses for things that you want to replace. • Drive your car longer. Repair it when needed instead of trading it in just because of high mileage. • Buy generic brands and consider buying used for everything and keep your things longer. • Use points programs that are offered by retailers. Collect points throughout the year and then use them to purchase gifts for Christmas and birthdays. The gifts are free, but the receiver doesn’t have to know. • Stop the take-out and restaurant meals. Take lunches to school and work. There is nothing better than a home cooked meal. Restaurant meals make your waistline wider and your wallet thinner. Eating out should be restricted for special occasions only. It feels good to get a deal! Have that feeling more often! Start looking for opportunities and become addicted to saving.

Good Stories from Curve Lake First Nation

The Chief’s Daughter

As told by Doug Williams to Julie Kapyrka

There was this family that lived on Stoney Lake, Clear Lake, and Katchewanooka Lake, and this was known as their hunting territory. They were a family from the ATIK (Caribou) Clan and they were written about by the Strickland sisters in their books about pioneer-living in the area. What is interesting is that at that time, the word the settler community used in English to describe ATIK that would be recognizable to them was “cow” and the Chiefs at that time seemed to accept it and started calling themselves that. The Headman of the family and clan, Jack ATIK, who became known as Jack Cow, and his brother, Eel Cow, were well known in the area. That is why Eel’s Creek and Jack’s Creek, and Jack’s Lake are named as such. There is an interesting story about this area that is very important. Jack Cow had a daughter called Polly. She was a beautiful girl, neat, tidy and welldressed and the pride of her family, also as the daughter of a Chief. One day she took sick. She was afflicted with one of the major sicknesses that affected Indigenous peoples: cholera, diphtheria, smallpox. These diseases took a big toll and Polly passed away. Jack and the family were devastated. Jack brought her body to an island below Young’s Point, which is known today as Polly Cow Island. He buried her in a shallow grave and during a 4-day ceremony he camped just down the river on the east shore of Katchewanooka Lake. He stayed there for 4 days as part of the ceremony but also to look after the area and make sure that no vandals or anybody

did anything to the grave. There would have also been a lot of symbolism there, too. There would have been colours of cloth and there would have been beads left that were received through trade. There would also have been utensils that she liked, and new clothing, new moccasins. It was actually reported by Susanna Moodie or Catherine Parr Traill that they saw Jack paddle back and forth every day, pray and smoke his pipe. Apparently before he buried her, there was actually a flotilla organized that included many communities. They left a camp around the far end of Stoney Lake and paddled down to south Stoney and into Katchewanooka Lake and held a ceremony for Polly. And then Jack held his vigil. He looked after his family for years. One day, Jack went to see Susanna Moodie and he was crying and distraught. He told her that somebody had stolen parts of his girl, that somebody had taken her skull and he was asking for help. Although I am not too sure of the truth, what is generally told is that Susanna investigated and found out that the skull had been taken to England to study its cranial features. The early settlers of Stoney Lake were interested in finding out who lived in the area before them. They loved history and were obsessed with chronologies. There is documented information on such things. Today, Polly Cow Island, at the narrows of Clear Lake and Katchewanooka Lake, still houses the spirit of the young girl. We know exactly where she was buried. I would ask that people leave the site alone. That is all that I ask. For the spiritual wellbeing of that individual. That area should be protected. All the islands, in fact, should be repatriated. There are many islands in the system that have burials there…but that is another story.

HIGH-TECH AGRICULTURE

and monitor their farms. GPS isn’t just used to get you down the 401 and into the city anymore. Along with auto-steering mechanisms, computers, and monitors built into field equipment, farmers are able to use GPS to precision till, plant, fertilize, spray, and harvest their fields. Monitors in harvesting equipment can track the crop yield in a field down to its precise location, letting farmers know of potential issues in low-yielding areas. They can then check the yield maps from the fields and adjust their crop planning for future seasons. The precision driving from GPS and auto-steering means farmers can also be more accurate in their fertilizer, seed, and spray distribution in their fields, which is more economical and can be more environmentally friendly. Cell phone apps can help farmers be alerted to issues on the farm without being physically there. While off the farm, apps and cameras can let them know when cows are calving, help identify weeds in their field crops, aid in choosing the best herbicide, and track and record livestock data. With fewer people working on farms, using robots can take over jobs previously done by humans, freeing up farmers’ time for other jobs. Robotic milkers in dairy barns are used to milk cows on their own schedule, increasing cow comfort as well as milk production. Robots in barns can be used to move and distribute feed to livestock. Robots are also being developed to harvest fruits and vegetables, which means less human labour. Other robots are designed to thin crops and spray weeds, decreasing manual labour and reducing herbicide use. Drones are another high-tech tool being used by farmers today. They can map fields, monitor crops and identify problem areas. Without drones, farmers need to complete these activities on foot or by vehicle, walking through their fields to analyze weed populations and look for diseases and nutrient deficiencies in their field crops. Now drones can find the problem areas and farmers can check specific field locations in person. These examples are only a small portion of the tech used by today’s farmers. With advancing technology, the possibilities of its use in agriculture are limitless. Kim Callaghan is with Callaghan Farm Supply, a familyrun business in Lindsay.

THE CHANGING FACE OF FARMING

By John C. Rich

March 8th & 9th, 2017 - Lindsay Fair Grounds

As a young boy, I remember all of the farms along our road. All were family farms back then. There were dairy farms, chicken farms, beef farms and even a hog farm. In addition, there were lots of opportunities as a young teen to make some extra money. I did everything from picking fruits and vegetables to tossing bales during hay season. Tractors were much smaller and a lot of the farm operations were very time-intensive. Today, many of the “ma and pa” operations have been bought up by larger companies. New terms have popped up, like “cash croppers”, who don’t actually raise any livestock, but provide feed (hay, beans, corn, etc.) to farms. The tractors, while not as large as out in Western Canada, or even Western Ontario, are huge compared to those from the 60s through the 80s. Other equipment has also changed, like sickle mowers and small square balers. They have moved to discbines, and round or even large square balers. Along with the changes in the size of the equipment there is also an increase in the cost of the equipment. This is one of the reasons that many small operations have trouble keeping their heads above water. Farmers have had to adapt to changing conditions. While weather has always been a factor, government regulations and energy conservation have had a big impact on costs and operations. Tractors now come with DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) and regeneration modules that burn off carbon accumulation for a cleaner environment. While this is a good thing, it comes at a cost, which in turn, farmers must pass along to consumers or absorb, making farming survival even more difficult. In addition to producing farms, there are also a number of “Hobby Farms.” People who are looking to grow their own produce or raise a few chickens or have a couple of horses, have popped up everywhere. Ironically, back in the early 1900s, everyone had a horse and only the wealthy had cars.

Advancing on all fronts.

Now, everyone has a car and only the wealthy have horses. As someone who calls on farms, I’m always moved by the resiliency of the farmers who persevere to put the food on our tables. I’m also saddened when I see yet another farm disappear, or be gobbled up by corporations. As consumers, we should be thankful that there are still those farms and families out there who strive to provide quality produce while protecting our environment. John C.

CUPCAKES FOR THE ANIMALS

You can satisfy your sweet tooth and help out the animals at the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes (HSKL) later this month. HSKL takes the opportunity around National Cupcake Day on February 24 to raise some much needed funds. They encourage you to bake your cupcakes and collect donations at your workplace, home, school or club. You can also donate some of your goodies to the HSKL for their in-shelter parties on February 23 and 24 or just drop in to make a donation and get in some pet cuddles. Last year, HSKL raised just over $8,000 for animals in need.

“Cupcake Day is our biggest fundraiser of the year and everyone is encouraged to join us,” says Henny Venus, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes. “Getting involved by hosting a party, baking for us or making a monetary donation, you will be changing the lives of the animals that come into our care.” Presented by the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society, National Cupcake Day is a coordinated Canadian event to support local shelters, SPCAs, and humane societies. Proceeds from HSKL’s campaign, go directly to the animals in their care. The proceeds do not leave the City of Kawartha Lakes. For more information on HSKL and Cupcake Day, please call 705-878-4618 or email pr.hskl@cogeco.net

LINDSAY LIONS ACHIEVE FOUNDER STATUS AT RMH

For 66 years, the Lindsay Lions Club has been improving the health and wellness of people both local and abroad through their tireless philanthropic efforts. On January 31, members of the Lindsay Lions Club made a special visit to the Ross Memorial Hospital to present a donation for the Comfort and Care Holiday Appeal. The Club presented a cheque for $3,300 to help the RMH Foundation to purchase new intravenous (IV) pumps with advanced safety software.   This gift is special for another reason: it brings the Lindsay Lions’ cumulative giving to the RMH Foundation to $100,000 and earns the Club ‘Founder’ status on the Donor Recognition Wall in the hospital’s main hallway.   “This hospital is so fortunate to have such generous partners in the community,” said Erin Coons, RMH Foundation CEO. “With this gift for new IV pumps, the Lindsay Lions mark a milestone in their service organization’s proud history of giving. The impact of their generosity will be felt for years to come.”   The Ross Memorial Hospital has an aging fleet of 170 IV pumps. The RMH Foundation is committed to helping the hospital replace and improve its fleet with new pumps that are equipped with the latest safety software. Almost every admitted patient at RMH needs an IV pump to deliver medicine, fluids or nutrition. They’re needed every minute of every day.

SHOULDER SURGERY NOW AVAILABLE AT RMH

For those experiencing chronic pain and reduced motion in their shoulder, brushing their teeth, opening a can, and even hugging a loved one can be a challenge. The answer for some is total shoulder replacement (shoulder arthroplasty). Ross Memorial Hospital has been approved to complete 19 shoulder arthroplasty procedures before March 31. “People who require this surgery could have had a severe injury to the shoulder area or are experiencing pain and limited movement as a result of advanced arthritis,” says Dr. Guirguis, the surgeon who has been advocating to bring shoulder arthroplasty to the hospital. “Previously, patients had to wait around 24 months to access this surgery in Peterborough, and because their pain interfered with their daily lives so much, they often left our area to seek out the surgery, sometimes going as far as Kingston.” “Providing this service right in our community will help so many patients and families,” says Anne Overhoff, VP Clinical and Chief Nursing Executive. “It means that people no longer have to travel great distance, often at great expense, to get the care they need. It’s a valuable addition to our Surgical Program.” Physicians can refer patients directly to the surgical team at RMH. As the list for the procedure has just opened up, patients can receive their surgery in as little as 6 weeks. Following the 19 approved procedures, the hospital aims to offer this as a permanent part of their Surgical Program, keeping care close to home for local residents.

BE FLOOD READY

The public is invited to a free public forum on flood preparedness in Fenelon Falls on Saturday, March 7 from 9am to 1pm. “This is a great forum for residents and property owners concerned about flooding and how they can be more prepared,” explained Iryna Shulyarenko, hydrologist at Kawartha Conservation. The forum is being organized and co-hosted in partnership with Kawartha Conservation and the City of Kawartha Lakes. Formal presentations will take place between 10am and 12pm at the Fenelon Falls Community Centre at 27 Veterans Way in Fenelon Falls. To sign up for this free forum, the public is asked to register in advance at http://bit.ly/FloodPreparednessForum.
