OVER THE BACK FENCE

After weeks of shaking hands, making promises and calling each other out, we now know who is going to lead our province. The people have spoken loud and clear for change with the election of Doug Ford as the next leader of our province. It’s a majority government, with the Conservatives soundly taking sitting Premier Kathleen Wynne out. I think it’s only time before we see the true colours of the big blue machine. Will Premier Ford be able to keep his promises or become Trumpesque and blame others when things don’t work out? According to his campaign platform, we should expect more than $7 billion in annual tax cuts, transparency, lower hydro bills, revamping of Hydro One, lower gas prices, and changes to education and minimum wages. I’m sorry that my local long-time MPP Jeff Leal was not elected. I met Jeff on many occasions and whatever you might think about the leader of his party, he brought money, jobs and

dignity to our rural area. Dave Smith, our new Conservative MPP, has big shoes to fill. Congratulations to Conservative Laurie Scott, the MPP again for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock. For the first time in a long time she’ll have the weight of a majority government to bring economic development, jobs and funding to the area. There has already been much on social media and I’m sure there will be more to come. But we must remain positive and let the mud-slinging stop. Those who didn’t cast their ballot on June 7 have no right to complain. Ford has four years to prove himself and deserves the chance to do that.

DOG WALK THANKS

When my husband, John, and I moved to Bobcaygeon and joined the Bobcaygeon Lions, little did we know how much we would learn to appreciate our new friends and community. We recently were involved in the first Bobcaygeon Lions/Pet Valu Guide Dog Walk put on by our own Pet Valu and the Bobcaygeon Lions. It was a tremendous success, far surpassing our goal of raising $5,000. Instead, we raised over $12,000. We were truly flabbergasted by the outpouring of community support, from financial donations to walkers and their beloved dogs with pledge supporters.

Shop & Enjoy at Farmers’ Market Saturdays 8-1

at the Bobcaygeon Fairgrounds

This event would not have been successful without the support of the members of the Bobcaygeon Lions, and especially the Dog Walk committee headed by Janet McMann. She was our driving force and actually pushed us to take on this worthwhile cause. It was a huge undertaking, but her passion kept us working hard. Thank you Janet!!! A huge thanks as well to committee members David Savournin, John Darling, Gwen Pelley, Marnie Durham, and Lynda Darling. (I thought I may as well include myself, lol). There are so many other supporters to be thanked – they’re listed in our ad on page 25. We were really overwhelmed by your generosity and support. On behalf of the Bobcaygeon Lions, Pet Valu, and the Lions Guide Dog Foundation, THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE!!!!! Yes, my husband and I definitely chose the best place to live.

City Hall By Kirk Winter

In one of the briefest Council sessions I have covered this spring, one deputation, one report from staff and one issue about City tendering were front and centre.

Fence encroachment 59 Cambridge Street

A deputation from the homeowners at 59 Cambridge Street in Lindsay was brought forward to Council. The fence in question, built by the homeowners two years ago to give their children a safe play space, was discovered by the City to be encroaching on City property by eight feet when the homeowners applied for a building permit to build a garage on their property. The City Land Management Committee recommended the fence be removed, but suggested to the homeowners that before any final decision was made that they take the issue to Council. The fence not only encroached eight feet on City property, but it boxed in the utilities on the Cambridge Street side of the property on the wrong side of the fence. The homeowners’ presentation pointed out that they had used the same sight lines as other properties on both Cambridge and Bond Street, and that they were prepared to enter into a land use agreement with the City that stated if the utilities ever needed to be

accessed that all costs would be borne by the land owner. Councillors Dunn and James spoke in favour of allowing the fence to remain, while Councillors Martin and Junkin suggested that allowing people to build illegally and ask for permission later was not a good precedent. A vote was called and the fence will stay, with all costs borne by the land owner if at any time the City needs to access either the land or the utilities underneath it.

City of Kawartha Lakes Accessibility Report

Staff presented an update on what the City has done since 2013 to make the community more accessible to those with a wide variety of disabilities. Examples given of progress include: • accessible bussing, bus stops and bus shelters • new sidewalks and walking paths that are walker friendly • signs throughout the City that have appropriate font sizes for those who are visually challenged • audio assistance at Council meetings for those in attendance who are hard of hearing • a program that ensures that all new City builds and renovations are handicapped accessible • a new splash pad and parks that are barrier free • audible signals at more and more crosswalks throughout the City. The presenter shared that one in seven Ontarians have some kind of disability, and those disabilities limit what people can do on a daily basis. The situation will also worsen in the City as our predominantly middleaged population grows older. Mayor Letham and Council were pleased with the report, but said in the next 5-year plan much more

tender

for

ambulance

The City is in the process of buying new cabs and chassis for two City ambulances that will be mounted on the existing frames of the two ambulances being rebuilt. Councillor Junkin wondered why the work was being done in Saskatchewan rather than in Ontario. Staff pointed out that the Ministry of Health has approved only two ambulance rebuilders in all of Canada. One is in Quebec, the other is in Saskatoon. Apparently, ambulances are in a class of their own when being retrofitted, and unlike other City vehicles that can be rebuilt by a City sanctioned shop in Durham Region. Council voted in favour of sending the ambulances to Saskatoon for their rebuilding. Many in attendance were surprised when Mayor Letham announced that the June 19 meeting had so many deputations on the docket that the meeting would begin at 11, rather than the normal start time of 2, with a break for lunch at 1. Better bring my sleeping bag for that marathon in the making! Correction In the last issue of City Hall News I incorrectly reported that council did not provide the Old Gaol Museum financial assistance to get them through a difficult 2018 budget year. I misheard the resolution put forward by Councillor Junkin, and almost unanimously supported by the rest of council. Council did vote in favour of supporting the museum in its time of need, and has asked that a business plan be provided sometime in the first quarter of 2019. The mistake was mine. ~Kirk Winter

STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS By Glenna Burns

Trent Lakes Council has received the final Streetscape/Greenspace Design for Buckhorn from Skelton Brumwell & Associates Engineering consultants from Barrie. After much public consultation including 130 survey responses, it was determined that the number one concern for residents was walking trails and sidewalks. Currently, Buckhorn has few places for pedestrians to manoeuvre the streets. The second key concern was streetscape improvements. Landon Black (representing Skelton Brumwell) presented Council with a detailed plan for the community that included sidewalks, crosswalks, parking proposals, a park, methods to achieve these changes and costs for each phase. Consultations had also been carried out with Curve Lake First Nation regarding what Black termed

TRENT LAKES SALARY REVIEW

By Glenna Burns

A while back, Trent Lakes Council was forced by Provincial Pay Equity legislation to undergo a review of staff and Council salaries. After a review of a consulting firm’s findings, it was concluded that the Mayor’s position was underpaid, while the Deputy Mayor and Councillor positions were well paid, when all were compared with other municipalities in Peterborough County. Since annual salary increments of 1.8 percent are paid out to Council and staff, it was resolved not to pay those salary increments to the Deputy Mayor and Council members, but to continue to pay the increase to the Mayor’s position. Councillor Terry Lambshead said, “We should continue to increase the Mayor’s salary to differentiate it from the Deputy Mayor.” Lough Barnes Consulting Group (LBCG) was hired to help the Municipality become compliant with the Provincial legislation, to maintain internal equity among staff, to ensure salary structure was consistent with the Municipality’s current and future needs and to create an appropriate job evaluation tool. The process to review Trent Lakes was a complex study involving consultations, document reviews, comparison studies, interviews, cost impact studies and job evaluations of 32 positions. A job evaluation system was completed as a tool to determine the relative worth of jobs within the organization in ‘a systematic and objective way’.

The study also reviewed external market data to compare what Trent Lakes pays its employees compared to other municipalities of a similar population. Eighteen non-unionized positions were reviewed. All jobs evaluated were either just above current market salary value or at market value. This is important for municipal hiring, as competitive salaries attract the best employees.

THANKS TO QUARRY FIGHTERS

By Glenna Burns

People who would like to thank the appellants who have been working hard since 2012 to stop the Dewdney quarry proposal near Nogies Creek will have a chance to do so in July. On Thursday, July 12, friends of the appellants will present Limestone Blues 2, at Kawartha Coffee in Bobcaygeon from 6 to 10 pm. The evening will be a celebration/fundraiser with music, food/drink and a silent auction. Save the date for this drop-in event. In September everyone involved in this case will return to court as the proponent Dewdney Mountain Farms attempts to have an appeal granted to continue the case. If the ‘Leave to Appeal’ is not granted, then this court process is finished, and the proponent must start over again. A special Go-Fund-Me page has been created to help with legal costs.

Happy Father’s Day - Sunday, June 17 By Deb Crossen

Considering all the single parent families, LGBTQ families, and grandparents parenting families, it’s only a matter of time before Mother’s Day and Father’s Day becomes Great Parent’s Day instead. But until that happens, it’s time to celebrate Father’s Day on Sunday, June 17. My Dad was a veteran of World War II, a humanitarian and, until John, was the one man I knew I could count on. He wasn’t the “traditional” father – not always the breadwinner or baconbringer. My Mom had a career as a nurse, so Dad spent a lot of time at home with us. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, my Dad went on a crusade. He became Operations Manager for the Canadian relief efforts in

Biafra. He spent months away from home, putting his life on the line to bring medical supplies and food into that war-torn country. My Dad passed away on February 21, 1989. There isn’t a day that goes by all these years later that I don’t miss him. I had a dream about him only once since his passing. He was standing alone in a white room and opened his arms to me. I walked into the most calming, peaceful hug of my life that night. I remember waking up in the morning feeling full of love and knowing my life was going in the right direction. This isn’t just a remembrance of my Dad, but it’s a reminder that we should use all this time we have with our family members to reminisce about the past, live in the present, and look toward the future. Thanks to all the Dads out there, no matter what shape or form you take.

The perfect gift for Dad...

CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF CANADA’S FRESH WATER SUMMIT

By Hayley Phoenix-Winterburn

Canadian small town festivals celebrate a variety of themes, reinforce the identity of a town, and make sure that traditions continue for future generations to enjoy. It is a time when residents can come together to boast about their community, and take pride in where they live. The community spirit which results from festivals is contagious and is sure to put a smile on your face. These events are important for residents, but they also hold significance for businesses and community groups! Every year many summer residents pass through the towns and villages of the Kawartha Lakes -- our festivals attract visitors to stop, take it all in, and experience all the fantastic businesses and landscapes that our small towns have to offer. Festivals also attract visitors, even during times when festivals aren’t happening! One great example of the quintessential Canadian festival comes from Coboconk. The fresh water of Balsam Lake has always played a major role, and is still recognized for its importance today. Coboconk is home to the highest body of fresh water from which

one is able to circumnavigate the world. This means you are able to reach all four oceans by starting in Coby without ever touching land. This claim to fame certainly makes Coboconk a unique area! To commemorate this historic event, Coboconk hosts the annual Canada’s Fresh Water Summit Festival for a weekend of family fun. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Festival!   The Festival begins at the Coboconk Wharf on Friday night from 7pm to 11pm with great food from local restaurants. This year we are excited to kick off the Summit weekend with music from Live on the Line! The Festival continues into Saturday with free activities for all in Lions Park -- including a professional water ski and flyboard show and Kids’ Zone activities such as a bouncy castle, face painting, Zoo to You, and more! Be sure to check out community displays and artisan booths, and enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast. End your weekend with an outdoor worship service on Sunday celebrating the role of water in our lives in the Lion’s Park Amphitheatre followed by a picnic lunch. Join us for the 2018 Canada’s Fresh Water Summit Festival from June 15 to 17. We are looking forward to celebrating with you!

Wishing the Coboconk-Norland Area Chamber of Commerce a successful and exciting 10th Anniversary Fresh Water Summit Festival June 15-17

Live on the Line brings their special brand of “beauty music” to the wharf in Coboconk on Friday, June 15 to kick off the Fresh Water Summit Festival. The party starts at 7pm and admission is $7.50. That includes some yummy food from some of your favourite local restaurants.

FLYBOARDING ANYONE?

One of the highlights of the Fresh Water Summit Festival is the professional water ski and flyboard show at the waterfront. So what is flyboarding, you ask? A flyboard rider stands on a board connected by a long hose to a watercraft. Water is forced under pressure to a pair of boots with jet nozzles underneath, providing thrust for the rider to fly up to 50 feet (15m) in the air. The experienced flyboarder can also dive headlong into the water and back up again. Make your way to Lion’s Park on Saturday at 11am to see how the pros do it!

NORLAND FESTIVAL IS BACK

The popular Norland Festival takes place on Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15 in this beautiful community. Located on the Gull River at the north end of Shadow Lake, Norland is a remarkable town marked by the granite that comprises the Canadian Shield and everywhere are the cedars and pines that are reminiscent of Group of Seven paintings. On Saturday, July 14, you can enjoy a number of activities for the whole family beginning at 8am. • “RedNeck Ruckus” Mixed LOB Ball Tournament • Horse Shoe Tournament • Displays and Crafts • Children’s Activities

AN EVENING WITH JANE AUSTEN

By Denise Livingstone

On Saturday, June 2, the Cricket’s Handbag hosted a Jane Austen inspired day at an historic homestead near Balsam Lake. The afternoon began with letters written with a dipping pen, folded to become their own envelope, then sealed with sealing wax and monogrammed seal. A tutorial on how to wrap a regency period turban followed with a lesson on the language of the fan. The day wrapped up with a six course tea that included several historic recipes mentioned in Jane Austen novels. The wonderfully decorated stone farmhouse made it very easy to imagine Jane and the activities that filled her days. To find out about this and other events, follow us on Facebook at “The Cricket’s Handbag”.

Health & Wellness DENTAL SURGEON RESPONDS TO ALLEGATIONS

Dr. Eric Orpana’s spotless record as an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon came under attack recently from the​ Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit (HKPR), which made allegations about the sterilization methods employed at Dr. Orpana’s Lakeland Clinic. According to the surgeon, his sterilization methods have always and continue to exceed what is necessary to prevent the transmission of disease through dental procedures. That includes compliance with the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario’s strict sterilization guidelines. In an effort to provide his patients with important context regarding the HKPR District Health Unit correspondence with his patients and their media statements, Dr. Orpana wrote those patients who have heard from the District Health Unit to provide important perspective and information about what really happened. In an email to the Kawartha Promoter, Dr. Orpana said, “The District Health Unit’s investigation was not prompted by a patient complaint regarding the Clinic. They have not proven a single patient was exposed to a transmittable disease as the result of a dental surgery procedure performed at the Lakeland Clinic.” Dr. Orpana’s practice remains open, and is

acknowledged by the HKPR District Health Unit as not posing a threat to the health of patients.

DONATION FOR LOCAL BREAST HEALTHCARE

Submitted by Kim Coulter

The Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation is thankful for the support of the Kawartha Credit Union and its Community Involvement Program. Michelle Finley and Kreg McKenzie, Kawartha Credit Union’s Lindsay and Little Britain Branch Managers, visited RMH recently to present a cheque for $5,000 to Erin Coons, Executive Director of the RMH Foundation. They were joined by Veronica Nelson, a Vice President at the hospital and Chair of the Kawartha Credit Union Board of Directors. The Kawartha Credit Union gift will contribute toward the cost of a new 3D Mammography unit with biopsy capabilities. 3D imaging helps physicians to view the breast in thin sections, to better detect small cancers and pinpoint the exact size and location of a breast lesion. The installation of the new mammography equipment is part of a redevelopment project taking place this summer in the Diagnostic Imaging department at RMH.

GOLFERS SUPPORT RMH

Submitted by Kim Coulter

The decision John Lindsay made in 1975 to gather some friends for a fundraising golf tournament was a defining moment. It launched a legacy that continues to touch friends and impact local patient care 43 years later. In April, the golfers who participated in the John Lindsay Memorial Golf Tournament in Niagara Falls raised $2,275 to help the Ross Memorial Hospital purchase new X-ray equipment. Tournament organizers, Greg Welton and Les Fowler recently presented the donation to Erin Coons, RMH Foundation Executive Director (pictured right). “We’re profoundly grateful that the organizers of the John Lindsay Memorial Golf Tournament have made the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation a part of this special tradition,” said Erin Coons. After 100 years, X-ray technology is still among the most trusted tools physicians count upon to diagnose injury and illness. More than 100 X-rays are performed at the Ross every day.

BOOST YOUR BRAIN WITH YOGA

Submitted by Jennifer Bacon

Yoga is the fastest growing fitness segment in North America. The average age of the practicing yogi is now over 45 years old. Maybe that is because yoga isn’t just about stretching. People know that yoga is great for strength and flexibility, but the benefits on brain function are even greater. After just 20 minutes, you will see a boost in focus and memory. After a few months, regular yoga practice can help improve stress levels, provide a better night’s sleep, lower blood pressure, and even contribute to increased bone density. Yoga activates the parasympathetic nervous system. This is the opposite of the “fight or flight” instinct, also known as the “rest and digest” part of the body. This system helps the brain to wind down and relax.

The brain releases all kinds of good feelings after a yoga session. Scientifically speaking, dopamine, oxytocin, and serotonin levels rise. These happy brain chemicals leave you feeling more creative and energetic while also reducing anxiety. Many people who suffer from anxiety or depression see a huge benefit to doing yoga. While the happy brain chemicals increase, cortisol levels decrease. Cortisol is a hormone associated with stress and fear, and also decreases the size of the brain’s prefrontal cortex, which deals with discipline and self-control. Since joint mobility and balance decline with age, it is important to find a teacher who understands the unique needs of aging bodies and can work with you to offer appropriate modifications. With the use of chairs, props, and a slower pace, a gentle yoga practice can become accessible to everybody at every age. While the physical benefits of yoga might be obvious, the effects on the brain are significant and can’t be found in many other types of exercise. With so much evidence supporting regular practice, what is stopping you from giving yoga a try? Jennifer Bacon, certified yoga instructor, practices and teaches gentle yoga to all levels and age groups in Coboconk. www.relaxwithjenny.com

FOLK MUSIC REVIVAL

DISTRACTED LISTENING

Recent research indicates that listening to something while looking in a different direction slows reaction times, as the brain works to overcome distractions. Whether we are driving or conversing, this finding reinforces the idea that, by casting our gaze in a direction that is different from what we are listening to, we compromise our ability to hear. Researchers found that simply shifting the direction of gaze a few degrees away from a sound source has a significant impact on brain activity. Our brains are wired to expect visual gaze direction to be in alignment with auditory attention. Thus, the whole notion of the validity of multi-tasking must be called into further question. If you are concerned about your hearing, focus on one task at a time…helping yourself toward maximum hearing capability. It may be one of the most important undertakings of your life. At LINDSAY EAR CLINIC, we will stake our reputation on your complete satisfaction with our approach to addressing your hearing difficulties. Our state-of-the-art hearing tests are conducted and the results evaluated by an audiologist with advanced training in the art of helping the hearing impaired. If this sounds like it might be a solution for you, why not give us a call?

Community Care Buckhorn is proud to present “Blowin’ in the Wind”, an evening of Folk music featuring Sue & Dwight from Toronto. They’ll transport you back to the coffeehouses of the 1960’s Folk Revival.

COMMITMENT TO CARE

Submitted by Phong Tan

Our dedicated team of local healthcare professionals not only looks after members of our community, but they have also given their own time and money to care for the people of Honduras. This past February, a group of our local doctors, nurses and pharmacist travelled to remote villages in Honduras to provide much needed medical services. Some of these villages have not had any medical care for several years. Each day, the brigade journeyed nearly two hours each way to the villages by pickup trucks, travelling along crudely-made roads that at times were perilously close to the cliff edges. They crossed rivers to access the villages, and sometimes, the roads were so bad that they had to reach a few villages by boat. Led by Dr. Kathy Chapman, along with colleagues Dr. Ecob and Dr. Macmillan, the physicians diagnosed and treated nearly 2,000 patients. Along with medical care, the team also provided dentistry services, medicine, clothing, and prescription eyeglasses. The care that they provide to the people of Honduras is not work, but a passion and a commitment to making the lives of those they can help better. In aid missions, one could never help everyone; to fix all that is broken; or to heal every hurt. There is much work that remains undone; that needs to be done for the villagers in Honduras. This is why the team will be returning in January of 2019, to continue the work. They will continue to provide medical services, and more clothing and medicine. As well, the team is bringing equipment to make prescription eyeglasses in each of the villages for those who need glasses. Lastly, the team is hoping to set up a computer lab at a local school. The computers will allow children to connect to the world, to learn, and in doing so, help their families, and strengthen their community. Efforts are underway to prepare for the next brigade. The team needs our help so that they can provide care to those who are much less fortunate.

They are asking for donations of any old, but working, laptops that will be serviced and installed with a Spanish operating system. To raise funds to pay for medication, bandages, glass lenses, and other needed supplies or services, members of the medical brigade are hosting a dinner gala on November 24, 2018 in Lindsay. Tickets can be purchased for $100 each. If you have an old laptop that you would like to donate, or would like to purchase a ticket for the dinner, please drop in at either Fenelon Falls Pharmasave, or Village Gate Pharmasave in Bobcaygeon. Online donations can also be made at www.honduranchildren.com with a note that it is in support of the Lindsay Medical Brigade. For questions please forward them to info@honduranchildren.com. The team’s work is driven by passion, but ultimately, success can only be achieved through the compassion and the generosity of those who share their vision of trying to make one life better at a time.

PROVINCIAL ELECTION BY THE NUMBERS By Deb Crossen

Once again, the people have spoken. This time around, loud and clear for change, sending Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals scrambling. Doug Ford and the Progressive Conservatives trounced the Liberals, winning 76 seats to the Liberals’ 7. The NDP and their leader Andrea Horwath will serve as official opposition, taking 40 seats. The Liberals have lost their “party” status, winning only seven seats (they needed eight) at Queen’s Park (down 48 seats from 2014). Since they are not a recognized party, they are not entitled to speaking time during debates, will not be given public money for administration staff at caucus offices, and don’t get representation on legislative committees. That will make it difficult for sitting Liberal MPPs to be heard in any respect. And let’s not forget a historical moment in Guelph, where Green Party Leader, Mike Schreiner won that

riding, becoming the first Green Party candidate to win a seat in the provincial legislature. Locally, in Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock, Conservative Laurie Scott took the seat by a handy margin of just over 17,000 votes. Jeff Leal, the incumbent Liberal in Peterborough-Kawartha was sent packing, ending up in third place with just over 15,000 votes behind PC Dave Smith (22,939 votes) and the NDP’s Sean Conway (20,745 votes). Overall, 58 percent of those who were eligible to vote in the province did so. In Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock, 56 percent showed up, down 1 percent from the 2014 provincial election. Just over 65 percent of eligible voters made their mark in PeterboroughKawartha riding, a significant increase in numbers from 2014. No matter how it all shakes out now, Doug Ford and his PC majority government need to get down to work and prove they were worth the wait.

Roots & Ramblings By Linda Friend

May certainly was a busy month for gardeners. Having finally completed the spring clean up, the pruning, edging, weeding and planting, we now anticipate a relaxing June of horticultural rewards. Well, not quite yet! June is the month of vigilance. Many of those precious plants require maintenance and protection from all sorts of hazards, be it pests (from the lowly slug to the neighbour’s marauding cat) or diseases such as mildew, your personal Eden is under attack! The internet is a rich source of other useful remedies for common problems, but here are some simple remedies: • Spray hostas with a solution of 1 part ammonia to 6 parts water for slug control. • Aphids can be blasted with water spray. Be sure to spray the underside of leaves. • Plants such as phlox and asters that are prone to powdery mildew, respond to a solution of baking soda, water and dish soap. Spray the plants and the soil before the mildew is evident. Repeat as needed. While protecting the garden, be sure to safeguard the gardener! Wear a wide brimmed hat and/or sunscreen. Gloves protect from soil borne diseases, as well as inadvertent cuts and insect bites. Always don heavy gloves and serious sleeves before tackling roses, barberries and other thorny shrubs. Treat puncture wounds for what they are…wounds. Take a moment to clean and treat such injures. Finally, be aware of the danger of ticks. These pests are far more prevalent in this area than they have been in the past. The bite of a tick has serious potential for one’s health. These tiny insects lurk in grass, decayed leaves and shrubs. They can enter your home lodged in your pet’s fur. Spray your clothing, shoes and hat with insecticides containing DEET. Long sleeves and jeans with socks pulled up over the cuffs offer protection. Make a habit of checking yourself for ticks each night. If you locate a tick

George Albert Bruce Oliver It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved Dad, Bruce, at the Comox Valley Hospital on May 15, 2018 at the age of 92. Bruce was born in St Mary’s, Ontario to Hugh and Margaret Ann Oliver. His life, besides being long, was a full one. Growing up as a farm boy in Ontario, he and his older brothers later enlisted in the Armed Services in World War II. Bruce joined the RCAF, and found that it was a good fit for him. With his new wife, Edna, beside him, he launched a career that spanned from 1943 to 1980, when he retired ranked as Base Chief Warrant Officer. After losing Edna in 2003, Bruce moved to the Comox Valley to be closer to Craig’s family (and enjoy a longer golfing season). He married his second beloved partner, Audrey, in 2010. Bruce played as hard as he worked and was an enthusiastic curler (as Skip), lawn bowler (club President), golfer, and harmonica player (in both the Happy Gang and the Heartstrings). Though he gravitated toward positions of leadership, Bruce was an unassuming man that we will remember as generous, charming, and so very, very sweet natured. We’ll miss you Dad. Bruce is predeceased by son, Richard; wife, Edna (née Greenhalgh); daughter, Lauren; brothers John, Hugh, Grant, Stanley; sister, Beth; and wife, Audrey (née Ewing). He will be lovingly remembered by son, Craig (Rebecca); grandson, Richard (Lynne); granddaughter, Megan (Nick); and great-granddaughter, Scarlett. Please join us in remembering Bruce by visiting our memorial at www.piercysmtwashingtonfuneral.com

BAD NEWS/GOOD NEWS By Pamela VanMeer, Kawartha411

Made in Canada

A few weeks ago, the U.S. government shocked Canadian businesses when it announced it would put new duties on metal imports from Canada, the EU and Mexico. The levies of 10 percent on aluminum and 25 percent on steel reportedly sent Canadian producers of everything from oil to farm equipment into a state of panic. A steel expert with the University of Toronto told CBC News this is not good for Canada. For a country like Canada, “this is big trouble,” according to Peter Warrian. According to U.S. government figures, Americans imported almost 37 million metric tonnes of steel last year. About one-sixth of that came from Canada. As for aluminum, Canada contributes more than half of the almost five million metric tonnes that the U.S. consumes every year. This is big business for Canada. The Canadian Steel industry will produce about $16 billion worth of goods a year and employs about 30,000 people directly, but there would be at least 70,000 in spin-off jobs, experts say. Many products you might not be aware of have some steel in them, even items such as the iPhone. President Trump wants more steel and aluminum to be made in America, and he wants U.S. companies to buy it, instead of importing it. The good news is we can help our own economy by buying Canadian and buying local. We all know about Bobcaygeon’s Kawartha Dairy Ice Cream and milk products, local maple syrup and craft beer. Mariposa Dairy in Lindsay makes award winning goat and sheep milk cheese. We can buy fresh produce grown right in our own backyard at McLean’s Farm near Buckhorn. Traynor Farms and F​ ield Sparrow Farms are local producers that offer an alternative to factory-farmed meat. French’s Ketchup uses tomatoes from Leamington Ontario, and is now manufactured in Ontario as well. Did you know that Tinker Toys were manufactured in Fenelon Falls by Allen Wood Products and that Parkhurst Knitwear is made in Canada and was founded in 1926? Here are some other interesting homegrown Canadian facts: • F lorenceville-Bristol, New Brunswick is known as the French Fry Capital of the World. McCain Foods makes one-third of all the frozen french fries produced in the world in this small Canadian town, according to Reader’s Digest. •9  5 percent of the world’s lentils are grown in Saskatchewan. We have a lot to be proud of as Canadians, and especially here in the City of Kawartha Lakes. The next time you are shopping, why not look for something made in Canada or locally? Every little bit helps.

CHORISTERS’ CORNER

By April Scott

The Bobcaygeon team, Gibson’s Girls, collectively raised $4,445 for the annual Community Care Hike For Hospice. Pictured bottom from left: Tosha Jones with daughter Maeve, Nancy Coumbs, Amber Purdy, Monique Craig. Top from left: Healher Cousineau, Kassi Medwig, Jo-Anne Neubert, Linda LattoOttenbrite and mascot Gibson. (Photo submitted by Monique Craig).

First and foremost, the Choristers would like to thank those who attended their last concert on May 26. It was a very busy weekend in Bobcaygeon, and a very wet Saturday evening. We hope that you enjoyed the concert as much as we did performing. The Riverside quartet had a great performance that evening. The choir is now taking a break for the next couple of months, but will be back in August to prepare for our joining with the Reunion Choir for a concert in September. This sounds like it could be fun, and we’ll keep you informed as the summer progresses. Some of our members are also involved in the Music Council which is gearing up for the Concerts in the Park held at the Locks every Thursday evening in July and August. Look for posters around town for more information. In the fall we will be back to prepare for a Christmas concert....we will be recruiting new members for this performance so think about it over the summer! Until next time have a great summer but take a minute now and then to check our Facebook page -Bobcaygeon Choristers -- you might find more news there.
