OVER THE BACK FENCE

It’s time to get on my soapbox, so sit back and relax for this. How many times have you called a company looking to use their service or buy their product and (a) had to leave a message because their “new system” is automated; (b) been put on hold for a long time while they “serve other customers”; or (c) left a message and never heard a word from the company? If you’ve raised your hand to any of those, you can understand my frustration. In today’s competitive world, customer service is THE most important aspect of any business. I don’t care if the receptionist (is that a politically correct word anymore?) calls me back to tell me that the person I really want to speak with is on holidays and will call me back. That would be customer service to at least some extent.

While we’re on the subject of customer service, let’s talk about sales people in stores. How many times have you walked into a store or kiosk and been ignored by the sales people? They walk right by you or are too “busy” to at least let you know they’ve seen you. I don’t expect a salesperson who’s with another customer to leave them and jump to my side, but at least let me know you’ve seen me. Then there are those who just walk right by, pretending to be on a mission somewhere else. I spent about 30 minutes in a small store one day looking for a specific item and not one of the four salespeople asked if they could help me find what I wanted! We need to know we matter. We want to spend our very hard-earned dollars in your store or hire your service. Please call me back ... send me an email ... or give me a sign that you care about my business. Because I can find it elsewhere... and probably will.

Thank you from the Al Awad Family

More than 75 community members were present at the Gamiing Nature Centre on July 1 to meet and greet the Al Awad family, who have been living in Bobcaygeon since January 2016. Parents Yousef and Mariam along with their children Yamama, Hadeel, Yaman and baby Mohamed helped cut a cake and met with their supporters, many of whom continue to work with them on a regular basis. Mieke Schipper, Executive Director at Gamiing and Chair of BARC, thanked the many volunteers on hand and announced the happy news that a second Syrian family, the Dawarahs, would be joining the Al Awads as neighbours later this month.

Canada Day Memories

I would like to thank the staff at The Promoter for printing my small blog in the Friday 14th July issue 13. As I mentioned, my wife and I attended the Canada Day celebrations in Bobcaygeon. With us was my mother-in-law Joyce Grassam, who at 88 years was enjoying the celebrations with us. Despite her frail health, she also managed to attend the firework display in the evening, which we talked about on the drive home afterwards. Â I have to say with a broken heart this was to be her last outing with us as she suddenly passed away at her home on July 10. If it had not been for the Canada Day celebrations, my wife and I may not have been in Bobcaygeon that weekend. Thanks again to all the folks who worked hard to make the weekend an even more memorable time for our family. John & Leslie Hill Brampton, ON

City Hall Active Transportation Plan On Its Way By Pat Warren

Recently, COKL Council endorsed the Bobcaygeon Active Transportation Plan prepared by Cambium Inc. for Environmental Action Bobcaygeon. The local environmental group wanted to do something special for the community to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial; they decided that active transportation was the way to go. Active transportation is any form of transportation that is human powered, including transport for persons using assistive mobility devices. The group applied for and received a Trillium grant of $55,000 to fund the development of an Active Transportation Master Plan (ATMP) for Bobcaygeon that will help make the community safer, and a more convenient place to walk and bike. The committee, with direction from the consultants, held many community meetings to garner input into the plan. These forums were well attended and many great ideas were brought forward. The plan has many suggested actions and projects that will help Bobcaygeon become a more active community and an even more attractive tourist destination. Some of the projects in the plan are well on their way or have been completed. As a result of a partnership with a local community group Impact 32, funding for directional signage and the “Bike Share” program have been secured through the local CHEST fund and a tourism grant from the Province. The Trent Severn Waterway also partnered in the initiative. Bobcaygeon visitors and residents alike can now rent bikes at the kiosk just north of the swing bridge. Some of the other projects on the books include traffic calming initiatives, bike repair stations, laneway and parking lot improvements, family friendly bikeway and final bicycle route assessment/improvements. Wheelchair-accessible beach access and crosswalk improvements are also being considered. The plan will allow both the City and EAB to secure further funding to help build future infrastructure projects in the village. Happy Sesquicentennial Bobcaygeon!

equipment, are approaching the end of their lifecycle and require extensive repairs and accessibility upgrades. Throughout 2016, there were reports and recommendations by staff offering ways to trim the asset footprint to a more affordable size, including reducing the number of ice surfaces, community halls, libraries and service centres. Even with recent consolidations of buildings, the City maintains responsibility for $3.2 billion in assets. Adam Found, Manager of Corporate Assets,

10-YEAR FINANCIAL PLAN

City of Kawartha Lakes Council has taken a definitive step to ensure the municipality has the means to take care of everything it owns and manages for the foreseeable future. At the July 11 meeting, Council adopted a 10year Financial Plan that outlines a strategy for raising the required funds to cover capital and operating deficiencies while paying off a transitional debt by 2027. This is the City’s first long-term financial plan to help maintain service levels and existing assets. Since the Core Service Review began almost 2 years ago, Council has received reports of the extent to which the City’s assets, including a vast array of buildings, parks, roads, bridges, fleet and July 28, 2017 - The Kawartha Promoter

oversaw the development of the Asset Management Plan that informed the new plan. He said, “The City has a $30.3 million problem. About a third of that is infrastructure deficit, a third is a tax support gap and a third is our capital reserve deficiency.” He continued, “Recent indications of the problem include a variety of emergency repairs to assets such as the roof at City Hall, the Old Gaol Jail wall and multiple sand domes. Service deficiencies, such as the unacceptable deterioration of paved and gravel roads, are occurring due to lack of capital investment and maintenance.” Found explained in his report and presentation to Council that continued deferral of capital investment and maintenance is not an option. Continued depletion of already highly inadequate reserves is also not an option. There are only two ways to solve the problem our City has been facing for many years. One is to reduce service levels, and the other is to maximize non-tax revenue and bring the tax levy and capital reserves to sustainable levels. The 10-Year Financial Plan includes a $25 million debenture (low interest loan) that facilitates the transition to financial sustainability and lessens the sharp impact of the 2018-2019 operating pressures. It also stabilizes forecasted average tax increases and provides for a controlled decline in tax increases over

the 10 years of the debenture. “We can’t maintain over $3.2 billion of assets on tax support alone. It is time to face our financial situation and realize that smart borrowing will allow us to take care of everything we own, with a plan to pay it down steadily over the next decade. Anything else is continuing to bury our heads in the sand,” commented Mayor Andy Letham. The presentation, report, Asset Management Plan and 10-Year Financial Plan are available on the City’s website at http://www.city.kawarthalakes.on.ca/cityhall/reports.

PASSIONATE ABOUT BOBCAYGEON

By Kirk Winter

When Pam Cassidy arrived in Bobcaygeon 7 years ago to become Post Master, she did not take the usual career path as so many have before her at Canada Post. Pam is a veterinary technologist by training, and after working at a busy animal clinic, Pam was hired by University of Toronto to work in their cutting-edge animal research labs. Pam loved the work, but found the commute from her Beaverton home to be just too much with a young family vying for her precious time. Pam went looking for a challenging and interesting position closer to home, and 9 years ago began working for Canada Post. First, she worked as a term employee in Beaverton and then as a part timer in Cannington. A few months after being hired as senior assistant for the Bobcaygeon post office, the position of Post Master came open. Pam began a series of gruelling interviews against multiple candidates. Since being fortunately chosen as Post Master, she hasn’t looked back. Pam has fallen in love with the village of Bobcaygeon and its people. The community is an interesting mixture of seniors, young people, tourists, and snowbirds. The only thing they all have in common is the post office. Whether helping people mail letters, pick up parcels, buy Canada 150 coins, or provide assistance with the Canada Post website, Pam and her staff of JoAnne Harvey, a 38-year veteran of Canada Post; Kelly Valyear; and Joan Robson enjoy the variety that their work offers. Pam loves the interaction with her customers, and joked that she now knows more people in Bobcaygeon than her hometown of Beaverton. The post office itself services the 1,200 families in the village. There are four rural routes with 3,010

JUST ANOTHER LONG WEEKEND

It’s great to have another long weekend in the summer, and the Civic Holiday in August is no exception. It’s one of those holidays that doesn’t have a jazzy name or real reason for being, except to give some people another day off work! There are references to civic holidays dating back to the mid-1850s when various cities in Upper Canada (now Ontario) scheduled a public holiday in August. The date of the holiday varied year by year and was proclaimed by the Mayor. Shops were closed and the day was spent with picnics and railway and steamer excursions. The civic holiday eventually solidified on the first Monday of August. In 1969, the holiday was renamed Simcoe Day in honour of the first Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada. A motion at the Ontario Municipal Association to extend that name across Ontario failed. So that left it up to different cities and municipalities to call it what they wanted. In Peterborough, for example, it’s known as Peter Robinson Day, after the founder of the city. This “holiday” is not actually a statutory holiday in Ontario, although federal and many municipal governments give their employees the day off with pay. It doesn’t matter what you call it, there will be plenty of events and activities to do that long weekend. So get out and enjoy!

ENBRIDGE HEARS FROM RESIDENTS

By Pamela Vanmeer, Kawartha411

76 year old Bill Vann has lived in Bobcaygeon since 2011. He says he currently pays anywhere from $2,100 to $2,300 a year for propane to heat his home. Vann is excited about the prospect of natural gas coming to the area. “Based on the scale here, we would save about $500 a year.” Vann was one of a number of local residents who came out to a public information session held by Unbridle Gas in Bobcaygeon on July 19. The purpose was to consult with the public on its plans for a proposed new natural gas pipeline leading into Bobcaygeon and Fenelon Falls. City of Kawartha Lakes Council voted to support the initiative in June and also agreed to provide about $3 million dollars over 10 years by deferring taxes that the company would otherwise pay. The $65 million project needs approval from the Energy Board before it can go ahead. The company tried to bring natural gas to the area in 2005 but was denied approval by the energy board. Tanya Bruckmueller of Enbridge says they are confident the outcome will be different this time around. “Things have changed significantly since then, there’s obvious growth herein the community,” she said. “There’s a number of new residences and new businesses as well as the government process and calculations have changed and that will make it successful this time.” The plan is to bring the lines from Cowan’s Bay along County Road 17 and into Bobcaygeon. Enbridge has until July 31st to apply for the government grants. It is projected that construction will begin in Fenelon Falls in the spring of 2018 with customers coming online in the fall. Bobcaygeon will follow in 2019. Officials say natural gas could save the average homeowner more than $800 a year.

For more than 50 years, Trent University has incorporated traditional teachings and perspectives into its curricular and extra-curricular programming. In fact, Trent’s groundbreaking leadership in Indigenous Studies dates back to their beginnings, when they became the first university in Canada, and only the second in North America, to establish an academic department dedicated to the study of Indigenous peoples and Indigenous knowledges. In June, the institution announced a significant addition to its history instilling Indigenous reconciliation in the institution’s everyday work with the approval of 11 key recommendations, among them the naming of the Chanie Wenjack School for Indigenous Studies. The announcement of the newly-named School was among a substantial series of recommendations, furthering Trent’s leadership in Indigenous reconciliation and education. The recommendations include an innovative lecture-talk series that will bring prominent Indigenous leaders to the University to speak on Indigenous issues, and a new academic requirement for all undergraduate students to successfully complete at least 0.5 credits from an approved list of courses with Indigenous content. With this recommendation, Trent becomes only the third university in Canada to institute mandatory Indigenous course content. “The naming of the Chanie Wenjack School for Indigenous Studies and the implementation of the associated recommendations are a milestone in the evolution of Indigenous Studies at Trent,” said Dr. Leo Groarke, president and vice-chancellor of Trent University. “We aim to educate Indigenous and non-Indigenous students about Indigenous history, traditions, cultures, and ways of knowing. We are striving to make Indigenous reconciliation part of our everyday work and consciousness.” Chanie Wenjack was a young Anishinaabe boy who died in his attempt to escape residential school in 1966. The Chanie Wenjack School of Indigenous Studies brings together Trent’s undergraduate, master’s and Ph.D. programs under one School and unites various events, initiatives and spaces dedicated to Indigenous perspectives, knowledge and culture at the University. Prior to the launch of the Chanie Wenjack School for Indigenous Studies, Trent University paid tribute to Chanie and other residential school victims and survivors when Wenjack Theatre, the largest lecture hall on campus, was named in his honour in 1973.

WHERE’S THE BEEF?

That slogan from a popular fast food restaurant years ago resonates with anyone who today enjoys a good burger, steak or roast. As a matter of fact, according to the Beef Farmers of Ontario, the average Ontarian eats 39lbs of beef per year. We talk a lot about buying local in the Kawarthas at farmers’ markets and the farmgates. In the Kawartha Lakes, the Victoria Beef Farmers is a local organization representing all beef farmers. They advocate with various levels of government and help with all facets of the beef farming business including financing, marketing, animal welfare and training.


FOUR MILE LAKE OPEN HOUSE

FRAUDSTERS TARGET CITY OF KAWARTHA LAKES By Pamela Vanmeer, Kawartha 411

Kawartha Lakes Police say significant frauds are on the rise in the City. At the Police Services Board meeting on July 17, Inspector Mark Mitchell outlined recent crime statistics for Lindsay. Mitchell commented that assaults were down with only two assaults reported in June. The one crime that is on the rise, though, is fraud and three major frauds recently have police concerned. • A local tire business is out almost $10,000 after a fraudulent credit card was used to purchase tires. • A Lindsay travel agency lost more than $6,500 in a similar incident. • A Lindsay resident contacted the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service to report a fraudulent debit of

RENAISSANCE ART IN BOBCAYGEON

Renowned artist, Neil Blackwell, is having an art show and sale at the Boyd Library Gallery from August 1 to September 30. While Neil may be known by many for his wildlife art, his latest paintings are of the Rennaisance style. His works have been sold around the world to major collectors and numerous private collections in Canada, England, United States, Sweden, Saudi Arabia, Paris and Japan. Neil has won a number of awards for his wildlife art and is a three-time winner for Canada’s Duck’s Unlimited stamp and print portfolio. Neil and his wife Linda closed their gallery and gift shop (Bayview Art) in Bobcaygeon and retired in 2009. But Neil still paints every day and when asked when he thinks he may quit, he smiles and says, “when I stop breathing.” You can meet Neil at the Boyd Library Gallery on Saturday, August 5 from 10am to 2pm. Everyone who comes will receive a free wildlife print.

Kawartha Conservation staff will hold an open house on the Four Mile Lake Management Plan to present key findings and draft recommendations at the Burnt River Community Centre on Saturday, July 29. The two-hour open house, from 10am to 12 noon, will provide an opportunity for staff to discuss feedback received from the community on the second draft of the plan, as well as to receive public input on the content of the draft plan. “The open house will be the culmination of public input and consultation and represent the feedback we have received during the past year,” explained Aquatic Biologist Brett Tregunno. “We have heard from lake residents and incorporated a lot of their recommendations and feedback.” “This is a plan for the long-term health and sustainability of Four Mile Lake,” Mr. Tregunno continued. “This plan is unequivocally for the lake residents and in consultation with them.” Now in its second draft, the open house will be the final round of public consultation before staff finalize the plan and present to the Kawartha Conservation Board of Directors later this year for approval. The open house will be held at the Burnt River Community Centre. Everyone is welcome.

More importantly, the organization promotes the value of agriculture and the benefits of locally produced beef to the citizens of Kawartha Lakes. Local events are a huge component of those efforts. The Victoria Beef Farmers sponsor or support the Lindsay Exhibition, public educational events and, coming up on Sunday, July 30, the annual Summer BBQ. Healthy Farms, Healthy Farmers and an informed public are the key to continued growth and success in the agricultural industry. Victoria Beef Farmers do their part in ensuring that success. If you haven’t had the chance to taste the difference of local beef, you’ll want to hit this Summer BBQ. It’s being held at the farm of Judy and Terry Louden, 54 Blackbird Road in Lindsay. The cost is $15 in advance; $18 at the door; and $8 for children. Deadline to order tickets is July 29th. Call call Terry at 705-374-4848 or email victoriabeeffarmers@gmail.com.

BAD NEWS/GOOD NEWS Human Trafficking is not just a big city problem

By Pamela VanMeer, Kawartha411

Among the beautiful lakes, lush greenery and wide open spaces in the Kawartha Lakes lies a dark, mostly hidden scourge called Human Trafficking. Durham Regional Police charged a man with a number of Human Trafficking-related offences on July 14. They say a Whitby woman was being trafficked out of a motel in Oshawa. Human trafficking charges are rare but the act itself is not as uncommon as you might think. Since last December, eight girls have been rescued from Human Trafficking in the City of Kawartha Lakes. They are trafficked from local hotels, homes and even off the side of the road. City of Kawartha Lakes Police Const. Ryan Boutin says girls as young as 13 have been rescued and the victims are often moved all across the country to work. “The issue with human trafficking is it’s a Canada-wide problem, an Ontario problem and a Lindsay problem,” he says. The good news is Haliburton Kawartha Lakes Brock MPP Laurie Scott has been working hard for two years to raise awareness. “I introduced legislation called Saving the Girl Next Door because that’s where these young girls are being lured from -- our communities and small towns” On May 14, the legislation Scott introduced became law. Bill 96, the Anti-Human Trafficking Act, based largely on MPP Scott’s Saving the Girl Next Door Act, received

unanimous support in the Ontario Legislature. Haliburton Kawartha Lakes Victim Services onetime funding of $18,000 allowed them to hire a parttime victim advocate who focuses solely on human trafficking. “We work with our police and justice system counterparts to provide emergency exit bags, we call them “go bags”’; shelter; and make arrangements for emergency transportation,” says Laura Proctor, Executive Director, Haliburton Kawartha Lakes Victim Services. But the new, dedicated unit allows them to do a lot more for survivors. They can access $10,000 for residential treatment, $2,000 for victim and family counselling and $2,000 for crime scene cleanup. They can also now provide $2,000 for dental care and $2,000 for tattoo removal. Proctor says most of the victims have been “branded” with tattoos so that other pimps know this girl is already “owned.” We can all do our part to combat the issue. Police say parents should look for sudden changes in their child’s lifestyle, monitor their cell phone and social media activity and have an open dialogue about it. Hotel/motel owners can report suspected human trafficking and we should all watch out for our neighbours. If you see someone you think might be in trouble, ask if they need help.

Horoscopes

July 28 to August 10 Melodie McCullough

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Being creative, you have an interest in photography, entertainment and broadcasting when it comes to a career choice. If you find yourself in one of these and enjoy it, good for you. If not, reassess what your job is offering you, and how you feel about it. Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) In your relationships, Pisces, you are loyal, faithful and a home lover committed for life. And guess what? If you haven’t already found a person with whom to share this great loyalty, you may soon be introduced to that special someone. Aries (March 21 to April 20) As one of three fire signs, Aries, you tend to be lively, impetuous, aggressive, bright and enthusiastic. Wow! Those are fine attributes, but on the down-side you can also be forceful and demanding. Try to rein in these negative characteristics and focus on the positive ones. Taurus (April 21 to May 21) Dwell in possibility. What magical words! The land of possibility is a good place to hang your hat, Taurus, because it opens up so many avenues, and so many ideas and lets you dream. So plan to spend lots of time there. Gemini (May 22 to June 22) Do you feel like your weaknesses are outnumbering your assets right now, Gemini? Work on improving your limitations. Don’t give up. Don’t think of them as huge burdens, but as teaching points that are showing you where you need help. Then turn those weaknesses into strengths. Cancer (June 23 to July 23) It’s time to show a little (or a lot) of gratitude for the opportunities you have been given, the skills and knowledge you can share, and the love you feel. Don’t delay – say a big thank you, today!

Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) Don’t say goodbye, say so long! You may experience some farewells in the near future, Leo, but don’t worry – they are not permanent. You WILL meet again! Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) Dear Virgo, ancient astrologers believed in the magical powers of gems and that the influence of your astrology sign over your fortune in life was strengthened by wearing, holding or carrying the stone associated with the constellation under which you were born. Your astral (zodiac) gemstone is the carnelian that is a stone of creativity, individuality and courage. Like all agates, it has protection energies. Interested? Perhaps you should start wearing some lovely carnelian stones. Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) “Good times, good friends, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”: Mark Twain. Well, it IS summertime, Libra, and Twain’s advice sounds awfully appealing on these hot, hazy days. Enjoy! Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Have you been caught up in an undeserved string of arguments lately, Scorpio? Not very pleasant! You can ignore these, step aside, and let your quarreling buddies just do “their own thing”. Rise above their petty squabbles. Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Slow down, Sagittarius! Life probably feels like it is rushing by – and that’s because YOU are rushing head-long down the path towards who-knows-what. You must consciously make the effort to “unhurry” your days. Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) We know your career is important to you, Capricorn, but it should not be EVERYTHING. Please find other outlets for social connections and also learn how to play! You will not be sorry.

As many of you know, each year I hold a series of Town Hall meetings across the City. The purpose of the meetings is to share the bigger picture of Council decisions, how your money is being spent and the ways we’re moving ahead as a municipality. What I enjoy most about these meetings is the chance to hear your point of view about the direction we’re headed. This year we’ve had some very frank conversations about balancing what we all need and want. Topics we’ve touched on include development and growth, city revenue and expenses, and of course, roads. I’ve presented detailed information and admitted that we need to take better care of our roads. Each year we spend $32 million dollars on our roads – and still it’s not enough. We are seeing a steady deterioration of our roads and we need to spend more. The same goes for the condition of many of our City’s buildings, community halls, arenas, depots and parks. We have $3.2 billion of assets to take care of, and many of them are in their senior years and will require significant upgrades in 2018 and 2019. To address these financial pressures, Council has endorsed a 10-Year Financial Plan. It will allow us to maintain service levels while looking after our assets and protecting taxpayers from sharp increases. The plan includes a low interest loan for $25 million with a schedule to pay it back within 10 years. This is the only way we will get ahead of the infrastructure and operating pressures that have been building for years. Many of you supported this plan as we discussed it, and although $25 million is a big number, we have the ability to borrow it safely and pay it back responsibly. Thanks to everyone who came out. Enjoy the rest of the summer!

COBOCONK, NORLAND & AREA NEWS

LOCAL ARTISTS PAINT THE TOWN

By Hayley Phoenix-Winterburn

The Beautification Committee of the Coboconk, Norland, and Rosedale area has consistently brought new initiatives to improve upon the visual aspects of living in, and visiting, the area. Each season brings many exciting projects, and new this summer season are the banners that decorate the towns. With the help of local artists, each banner hung in Coboconk, Norland, and Rosedale is a hand-crafted work of art. Artistic expression has an important role in local culture by bringing communities together, showcasing local talent, and reinforcing values. The Coboconk, Norland & Rosedale banner project has continued that tradition. The project is the combined effort of both artists and small business owners. The banners were sewn and grommeted by Dinah Wilson of Dinah’s Decor, and were then primed on both sides and given to local artists Brenda Mulholland, Ian Ball, Gail McFadden, and Denise Livingstone to complete. In effect, each banner is two very large paintings. The painted banners showcase a number of different pictures, including animals and landscapes that reflect the natural elements of the area. One of the four artists, Brenda Mulholland, is experienced in mixed media and was inspired by the chance to work in a completely new medium and display. Her two banners, the snowy owl and the grey jay, can be seen in Coboconk and were inspired by the Canada 150 theme. However, the banners hold more meaning to Brenda than to just be visually pleasing. The banner project has strengthened the importance of art in small communities. Reflecting on

her background in teaching, Brenda says that one of the roles that art has in our community is to educate, stating that “everything we do teaches somebody, whether we know it or not. It is a community effort”. Responsible for the bulk of the creations, as well as spearheading the project itself, Denise Livingstone of The Cricket’s Handbag is very excited about the project and hopes to add to the number of banners next year. In the Fall, the Beautification Committee will check over each banner for wear and fading “so that we can adjust our creative process, if necessary, to add to the longevity of each banner”, says Denise. The committee is also looking for more participants to contribute their painting skills for future banners. You can see more creations from Brenda Mulholland, Ian Ball, and Gail McFadden during the 32nd annual Victoria County Studio Tour taking place September 23 and 24, and September 30 and October 1. The free self-guided driving tour includes 33 local artists at 24 studio locations.

THEATRE IN THE VILLAGE

If you’ve never experienced outdoor live theatre, here’s an opportunity to see a great one. The Driftwood Theatre will be at Kawartha Settlers’ Village on Friday, August 4, presenting William Shakespeare’s Othello. It’s a blistering tale of race, jealousy and revenge set against the backdrop of Canadian history when, in 1974, Canadian soldiers are caught in a life or death struggle on the small island of Cyprus. The performance is accompanied by a special audio installation, The Cyprus Project. It is a collection of individual stories surrounding the Cyprus war of 1974, shedding light on the personal consequences of international conflicts, as well as Canada’s important role as peacekeepers engaged in this, one of the longest overseas missions in our country’s history.

CYCLING FOR A CAUSE

The annual Kawartha Lakes Classic Cycling Tour has something for everyone. The Kawartha Classic has a variety of route options to choose from. For experienced cyclists the 160 and 100km routes offer beautiful scenery and a chance to explore our region. The 50km route is perfect for cyclists who want a relaxing ride or for amateurs pushing themselves towards longer distances. The 25km/13km trail routes are perfect for families looking to ride together. All routes are supported thanks to the army of trail vehicles, bike leaders and support volunteers. Regular aid stations are provided at key points along the route. Following your ride a full buffet will be available thanks to Boston Pizza. All funds raised from this event go toward supporting A Place Called Home, a charitable, non-profit organization that has been providing shelter and 24/7 support services to the homeless— and those at risk of becoming homeless—since 1995. They operate a 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.

WHO YOU KNOW

By Deb Crossen

How many times have you heard the phrase, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know?” That’s even more relevant when you live in a smaller community. Keeping up with minor home renovations, for some, has never been simpler. Just googling a subject or watching a how-to YouTube video can help. But there are times when you have to realize that no matter how many times you watch the how-to video or read a manual, there will be those home repairs and renos that are just too much for you to handle. As we age (and yes, I am one of those), doing drywall repairs, renovating the bathroom or rebuilding the little garden retaining wall are jobs we just don’t want to deal with. With more than 35 years of experience in construction, Kip Weller is carving out a niche for himself in the “no job too small” market, since moving to the Kawarthas two years ago. “I prefer to take on


the smaller home and cottage projects,” he says, and “designing and building small-scale outbuildings, like bunkies, has become one of my specialties.” While he admits he’s not an electrician or a plumber, he does have the contacts to get that work done for you as well. Kip is most proud ohis reputation for reliability and dependability. “If I tell you I’ll be there at 8:30, expect to see me by 8:15,” he beams. Kip is also a certified home inspector, and believes his experience in construction is a big benefit. Having an inspection before you sell can identify problem areas that could be a “deal-breaker” for potential buyers. Knowing about those problem areas, and fixing them before your home goes on the market could mean a quicker sale. Next time somebody says “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know” I can say I have one of those guys when it comes to projects around the house. His name is Kip Weller of Weller Home and Cottage.

According to Mr. Higuera, Ambassador Lloreda was not only impressed by the quality of the genetics, but also the hard work that Lloyd has put in over the past few years, exporting animals all over the world. The project undertaken by Cannexion and Lloyd’s farm will have a positive impact on youth and women in Colombia, who are active participants in the small ruminant value chain. They recently completed a project funded by Global Affairs Canada to help improve this industry in Colombia.

MAIN STREET REOPENS

For the past several months, City of Kawartha Lakes workers have been hard at it replacing the watermains along Main Street in Bobcaygeon. There has been limited access to several of the arterial streets as crews dug pipe, hauled dirt and gravel and laid new curbs. By the time you read this, the work should be completed – newly paved roads, new curbs and stone accents. Thanks to all the residents and businesses in the neighbourhood who endured months of the chaos. And thanks to the workers for communicating with us along the way. Come check it out!

Health & Wellness SWEETENERS MAY BE HARMFUL

There’s some new Canadian research out that suggests that artificial sweeteners such as sucralose, stevia and aspertame may be, in fact, harmful. Scientists at the University of Manitoba have found that what we thought was better for us than sugar may be tied to long-term weight gain, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and even heart disease. According to Global News, the study’s lead author, Dr. Meghan Azad said there isn’t strong evidence that sweeteners are beneficial. While Azad’s study didn’t identify exactly what it is in artificial sweeteners that could be responsible, she indicated it simply points to a link. You can read her full findings in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

WIRE BRUSH WARNING

For years, stainless steel or brass wire brushes have been used to clean barbeque grills. In the last couple of years, there have been reports of people being rushed to the ER because one of the steel or brass bristles have made their way into the food. In fact, an estimated 1,700 Americans went to an emergency room between 2002 and 2014 after having ingested wire bristles in grilled food, according to a study published in 2016 in

the journal Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. Now, according to CBC News, Health Canada has started a risk assessment into the products, after receiving nine incident reports since 2011. According to Health Canada spokesperson, Eric Morrissette, they’ll evaluate the results of the assessment to determine if the products should be recalled. Health Canada is asking that anyone harmed by a wire bristle being ingested should report the incident to the manufacturer or the store where it was purchased.

BE WATER SAFE THIS SUMMER!

A water safety reminder from the Kawartha Lakes First Responders:

Jumping or diving from cliffs and bridges is extremely dangerous. Underwater hazards such as logs, sunken vehicles, rocks and other debris may exist. The force of hitting the water can sometimes result in the swimmer losing their breath.

Wishing you a safe and enjoyable summer!

They should also fill out an incident report form on Health Canada’s Consumer Product Safety website. There’s no time limit set for the assessment, so in the meantime, you might want to choose an alternate tool to clean the barbeque grill. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

If you’re going to get rid of your bristle grill cleaning tool, here are some other ideas:

• An old grill cleaning trick is to take an onion, cut it in half and use the cut side to scrub the hot surface clean. The moisture in the onion steams the surface clean while onion enzymes break down tough, grilled on food. Use a fork or tongs to hold onto the onion. • A cleaning stone works like sandpaper for a cooking grill. The stone forms around the grill grates and removes any burnt-on food and debris from the top of the grill grate and in between the grates.

A PREVALENT CONDITION

If you are among the growing number of hearingimpaired individuals who would benefit from a hearing instrument, you owe yourself a fresh look at these devices and their capabilities. Those who rejected the use of a hearing aid in the past as being unnatural are likely to be impressed by the new technology. While older-style “analogue” hearing instruments could not distinguish between sounds (and amplified all sounds equally), newer “digital” hearing instruments are far more discriminating. Instead of being fed sounds that are too loud or difficult to hear, listeners with digital instruments are treated to digitally processed sounds that are tailored to the wearer’s hearing ability. The sound quality of the newer hearing aids is impressive. Our hearing professionals’ expertise is measured by our commitment to patient satisfaction, continuing education, and the application of current technologies. To schedule a hearing test or to learn more about the new hearing aid technology, please give us a call. We are committed to patient satisfaction, continuing education, and the application of current technologies. P.S. Digital hearing aids translate sound to digital code, change it, and re-transmit it by using mathematical calculations.

• The metal helix grill brush does a good job cleaning the grates. The metal coils get in between the grates and remove any burnt-on food. It’s easy to handle and glides over the grates quickly and easily. • The wood grill brush is another popular choice, but it may take some time to actually work effectively. The wood is supposed to form grooves when moved back and forth over the grill grates, but that has been shown to take a long time moving it back and forth over the hot grates. • And here’s a homemade remedy -- turn your BBQ on to normal temp then turn off. Make a ball of aluminum foil, dip in water, sprinkle baking soda on ball then scrub grill. Once clean, oil the grill. Check with your local barbeque dealer or hardware store for more options.

GETTING YOUR DUCKS IN A ROW

By Deb Crossen

There are some tough conversations to have with your spouse and family members. When it comes to making sure they are taken care of in case of a medical emergency or death is one of those talks that should be had sooner rather than later. John and I had Wills and Powers of Attorney written up in the ‘90s when we were in Toronto. It’s just the two of us, granted, but we felt that it was important to get the “ducks in a row” just in case. After living in Buckhorn for 17 years, and with the various situations we’d been through recently, we

figured it was time to get the necessary paperwork redone. There are basically two Powers of Attorney – one for personal care (medical decisions) and one for property (e.g., homes, bank accounts, bills, investments). You can choose one or more people you trust to assign as your POA. Most people opt for their spouse as the first choice, but it’s important to name a second person – someone you trust to make the tough decisions, especially when it comes to medical care. This is another tricky conversation to have but one that should be had. What if you become mentally incapacitated after an accident or serious illness? What are your wishes when it comes to resuscitation or end of life? You have to make sure they know what you would want to carry out your wishes in a difficult time. If you don’t have signed Powers of Attorney, a stranger may be assigned by the government to decide what’s right for you – medically or financially. It doesn’t cost a lot of money or take much time to do it, so it’s easy to put this power into the hands of someone you trust. A Will is a whole other kettle of fish. This is a document that takes effect upon your death. You appoint an Executor (again, someone you trust) to make sure your assets and possessions are directed properly when you die. There are a number of reasons you should have a Will but the most important is to dictate where your assets will go. If you don’t have a will, your family won’t have any say in these important matters. Instead,

the Province could become the primary decision maker, hardly an ideal situation. You don’t need a lawyer to prepare a will; there are plenty of websites that can give you the proper forms. It sure makes it a lot easier when there’s a professional who can ensure all the “i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed.” We called in Peter Kratzmann, an experienced lawyer who recently moved to Bobcaygeon (I saw his ad in The Promoter). What I especially liked was that he came to our home to discuss our needs. It was a simple process, mainly because we have no children and our “estate” consists of a house, a couple of cars and some stuff. Peter understood our needs and walked us through the process. Within a few days, we had the renewed paperwork – signed, sealed and delivered. This is something you need to do for your family – and it’s nice to know there are professionals like Peter who can help you through it. You can call Peter at 705-731-2170.

IN MEMORY

In Loving Memory of my beloved husband and stepfather and grandfather Helmut Al Kuenle who left us 17 years ago, August 2, 2000. God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered come with me. With tearful eyes I watched you suffer and saw you fade away. Although I loved you dearly, I could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke my heart to prove to me, he only takes the best. Your loving wife Ginny, Alan, Cheryl, David & Chris Clause.

LETS TALK ABOUT YOUR INSURANCE Vacation Home-Sharing in the Kawarthas sponsored by

Stewart Morrison Insurance

Thinking of Renting Out Your Home? Renting your home to potential vacationers through AirBnB, HomeAway, VRBO and others, has become increasingly popular over the last couple of years; especially here in the Kawartha Lakes. And whether you are the Host (renting out your home), or the Traveler (the renter), we highly recommend that you call your broker BEFORE you hit that accept rental button, and here is why: Hosts: Making a little extra money by listing your property on a Home-Share website can be a fantastic way of financing that dream vacation you've always wanted. But whether you are looking to rent your home as a one off, a few times a year, or simply just one room in your house, call your broker (or any of us here at Stewart Morrison Insurance) first. Your broker will be able to inform you if your home insurance (or tenants insurance) will cover you for liability, theft and other damages that have been reported to happen from time to time. Even if you do not frequently rent out your property, and your home insurance policy provides adequate coverage, giving your insurance company the heads up on the rental situation could be the difference of being reimbursed, or not, in the event of a claim. Keep in mind: Be careful when Home-Sharing websites boast protection in the event something goes awry and damages are incurred from renting your residents to guests. Quite often this coverage is not actual insurance and excludes liability, and contents such as jewelry and art. Furthermore the "protection plan" may state that you will first be expected to try and resolve the situation and collect damages, if not resolved; then you must go through your home insurance, and only after those avenues are exhausted will the "protection plan" be reviewed. Travelers: Thinking about booking a vacation, and either can't find a cottage, or there are few choices within your price range? Searching for a Home-Share is often a great way of finding beautiful properties, at a reduced rate. Win, Win! Your home or tenants insurance will cover you for any unintentional damages you may cause while traveling - if you have any additional questions regarding the coverage while renting, definitely ask your broker, or call us here at Stewart Morrison Insurance. Keep in mind: If your Home-Share is out of the country/province, you'll definitely want to ask about travel insurance! Home-Sharing is a fantastic trend we don't see slowing down any time soon. If you have been thinking about it, call us. We'd love to help you decide by making sure you are covered for whatever comes your way.

BOBCAYGEON RESIDENT PARTICIPATES IN CROSSCANADA CYCLING TOUR

Submitted by Jared Barrieau

Unleash Your Potential is a national health and wellness campaign and cross-Canada cycling tour seeking to motivate, inspire and educate Canadian youth. It has been a student-run initiative since 2005; all recruits are students attending the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, Ontario. Bobcaygeon resident, Jared Barrieau, was selected to the team in the fall of 2015 and has spent the last 2 years training for his trek across Canada this summer. As a team, the group covers between 120km to 220km a day with speeds averaging around 30km/hr. Barrieau and his teammates started their journey June 4 in Vancouver, BC and plan to finish by August 11 in St. John’s, NL. During their campaign, the team stops at schools and visits children’s programs in hopes of empowering children to take control of their wellness by making healthy choices in their everyday lives. It is the Unleash Your Potential’s belief that by educating youth about nutrition and exercise they can help create long-term lifestyle changes that will gear Canada’s youth towards a healthier future. To find out our more Unleash Your Potential or get involved with the Unleash Your Potential campaign visit the teams website www.unleashyours.ca or send an email to unleashyours2017@gmail.com.

It’s Easy Being Green Our Green Dream Home By Julia Taylor

donated all of the fixtures and doors that were in good shape, and I was able to bring some old hardware back to life with a quick spray paint for our cabinetry. It’s not exactly the self-sustaining dream home we want -- but maybe one day our numbers will get pulled and we will be arriving in our Tesla to our solar panel shingled house!

We solar panel dreams and net zero hopes! encourage you to choose the businesses Unfortunately we didn’t exactly have a ‘solar that you see in these pages. panel’ budget. I came up with all sorts of creative (or crazy) ways to “green” our renovation on the cheap -- like a hose attachment that came in the house from the rain barrels that I could use for laundry, and a toilet that has a sink on top so that it uses the water from the sink for the flush water. We discovered, though, that rain water needs to be filtered, and the toilet (available in Canada!) was more appropriate for commercial use. I also worked tirelessly to get second hand cabinets and fixtures with no luck. There were a few things we did, though, that didn’t break the bank. We brought our insulation up to new standards by building the walls out as much SocialServicesDivision as possible to accommodate more R value and going above new standards with attic insulation.

Sixty-two students attended the annual Music Camp, hosted by the Bobcaygeon Music Council (BMC). For a week, students in both instrumental and vocal classes held at Kawartha Settlers’ Village. Instruction in every level, along with arts and recreation, were delivered by 14 instructors. Concert goers were impressed with the beginner band, advanced band and showcase choir, as well as chamber music and jazz groups. “The kids experience music emersion in a fun camp environment. They just can’t help coming out of the camp experience without improvement musically,” said Music Camp Director Bev Tombler.
