At one time or another, when a particular situation or product isn’t working for us, we look for alternatives. There are those who look for alternatives for cleaning products to be more environmentally conscious. Others may search for options when it comes to electricity suppliers. I recently read a book by James Patterson called “Woman of God.” In the book, a female doctor who served along the front lines in Sudan takes her religious convictions down a nontraditional path, making “dangerous adversaries” of those opposed to her challenge to tradition. Now, I know there are alternative churches and, indeed, religions. Something for almost everyone, you might say. But what about those who are looking for their alternative in the mainstream?

We received a letter here at The Kawartha Promoter from a Roman Catholic Woman Priest (RCWP) who lives in Bethany, telling us about her new church in Pickering. According to Rev. Roberta Fuller, the RCWP are a new radical, reform Roman Catholic Movement in the Church. They are “totally inclusive, believing in gender equity because women’s rights are human rights.” Rev. Fuller also says, “We minister to the family of God who may not have a spiritual home, including divorced and remarried Catholics and members of the LGBT community.” I consider myself a spiritual person. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with finding your alternative, whether it’s cleaning products, electricity suppliers or religion. After all, we were given free will for a reason.

City Hall Should Lindsay Airport be a Core Service? By Pat Warren

On May 16, City of Kawartha Lakes Council heard the pros and cons of operating the municipal airport in Lindsay. The airport has been in operation since the early 1960’s and was under a lease agreement until 2001 when the City took over the management. An Ontario expense study of Municipal Airports was conducted in 2006 and found that 74 percent of airports were not self-sustaining, 21 percent were self-sustaining while 2 percent were viable. Although the Lindsay Airport doesn’t always break even, the bottom line has improved over the years. This is due, in part, to the expanded uses including a flight school, private aircraft, Ornge, OPP, MNRF, and the Canadian Military. In particular, Ornge, which is the emergency transport service in Ontario, was used 63 times last year. There is no area around the hospital to have emergency air services. Also, the airport is a support to the business community. According to airport board member Councillor Stephen Strangway, local businessman Brian Robinson is developing a new six-seater airplane. As well, other exciting potential developments are on the horizon. In order to help the airport become more sustainable, Council made a decision in 2008 to put the net proceeds from the sale of the Denfield Road property (near Mary St.) in the Capital Projects reserve designated for the rehabilitation of the airport infrastructure. Although the property has not been sold yet, it will help to improve the bottom-line in the future. Moving forward, Council has four options to consider. 1. Maintain the status quo, with service levels, continuing to operate at breakeven and market to

attract new businesses. 2. Invest now for growth in capital upgrades as outlined in the Business Plan, replace the aging infrastructure and add amenities to attract more business. 3. Lease the property and building to a third party to maintain and operate, in a similar model used prior to 2001. 4. Close the airport to allow the property to be repurposed or sold, removing the need for capital investment for infrastructure. The next step will be a more detailed report to Council, expected in August.

Environmental Heroes By Pat Warren

The City of Kawartha Lakes presented the Environmental hero of the Year Award to Gay Fletcher and her team. The award was given to the group for keeping Garnet Graham Park in Fenelon Falls clean by collecting goose droppings. Gay’s organization of the project has protected the water from becoming contaminated, resulting in fewer beach closures. The team has picked up 15 pounds of poop a day for 4 to 5 months. Geese are a major contributing factor of phosphorus and nitrogen entering the water which can contribute to algae and weed growth. As Chair of the Environmental Advisory Committee I was happy to present the award. “There were many nominations this year but Gay and her team really stood out.” The Youth Environmental Hero award went to the Bobcaygeon Public School Eco Club including Chloe Williams (Grade 6), Mackenzie Reesor (Grade 4), Maya Paiz (Grade 2) and Zephyr Ball (Grade 2). The team participated in many initiatives at the school, including installing bird nesting boxes, monitoring the school‘s recycling efforts, attending the Trillium Lakelands District School Board’s Eco Summit, making posters and reading announcements that contributed to the success of the recycling program in the school. There will be an award presentation at the Bobcaygeon Public School later this spring. Well done!!!


The 2017 Trent Lakes Budget has been finalized with the inclusion of the Peterborough County tax levy and the Education tax levy. The total number of dollars to be collected through property taxes is just over $20.5 million. The numbers break down as follows: The Municipality retains 42 percent (about $8.7 million); Peterborough County gets 34 percent (almost $7.5 million); and Education receives 21 percent (a little over $4.3 million). This translates to an increase in the average tax bill by 4.68 percent or about $141 per year. In 2016, Trent Lakes homeowners, on average, were paying $3,023.68 in taxes. In 2017 that figure will average out to $3,165.05 in property taxes. The $141.37 increase comes from a $32.53 overall budget charge and a $108.84 figure is due to a year one phase-in assessment charge. The total costs per every $100,000 of Residential Assessment has increased by $9.39 over last year. In 2016 the assessment (which includes County and education taxes) was $872.93; in 2017 that rises to $882.32. For the average home in Trent Lakes the assessed values increased from $346,383.39 in 2016 to $358,718.71 in 2017. Peterborough County has eight municipalities in its tax levy with Selwyn contributing the highest amount at just over $10 million. Trent Lakes is second in contributions with almost $7.5 million.

BAD NEWS/GOOD NEWS World Environment Day

One of the smartest people on the planet recently announced humanity has less than 100 years left on earth before doomsday. Renowned Physicist Stephen Hawking says things like asteroid strikes, epidemics, overpopulation and climate change mean our days here are numbered. Experts say over the past 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history. And experts see the trend is accelerating. By 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population may face water shortages, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Some of our pollinators, such as bees and butterflies are disappearing and facing extinction. Pollinators are crucial to the growth of many of the fruits and vegetables we need to survive. WWF’s 2014 Living Planet Report found the numbers of some mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish have declined by 52 percent over the last 40 years. We are losing forests at an alarming rate and our oceans, the world’s largest storer of carbon, are becoming stressed. With the United Nations World Environment Day coming up on June 5, Hawking’s announcement highlights the urgency of taking care of the environment. This will be the 43rd year for the special day that encourages worldwide awareness and action for the protection of the environment, but the situation is only getting worse.

By Pamela VanMeer, Kawartha411 It’s time for the world to step up and start getting serious about saving this planet. The good news is that ordinary citizens are doing their part. The City of Kawartha Lakes recently handed out the Environmental Hero Awards to local residents who go above and beyond. Gay Fletcher, the 2016 Environmental Hero of the Year, spends her summer days picking up 15 pounds of goose droppings per day from the beach park in Fenelon Falls. That’s commitment. The Eco Club at Bobcaygeon Public School won the youth Environmental Hero Award. Students as young as Grade 2 are taking the lead in educating their classmates and ensuring the school is recycling as much as possible. Wow! Adam Noble was a highschool student from Lakefield when he took a science fair project and turned it into a way to use algae to remove contaminants from wastewater systems. Noble recently announced plans to build a 50,000-squarefoot production facility at Trent University to offer sustainable solutions for the nutritional and pharmaceutical industries as well as waste water treatment. Amazing! These are just a few of the initiatives happening in our neck of the woods. Imagine what’s going on globally. I think there’s hope for us yet!

Basic Income: An Idea That Can Pay Off


to be ‘lazy’. This is false. A Basic Income pilot project in Manitoba in the 1970s found teenagers and new mothers were the only groups to work less. In those cases, more teens completed high school, while new mothers extended their maternity leaves. The Basic Income pilot in Manitoba also resulted in lower hospitalizations rates and fewer mental illness visits with health care providers. On its own, Basic Income won’t solve poverty. However, ‘guaranteeing’ people a basic income gives them options to improve their skills and education, allowing for better employment opportunities. Ontario’s Basic Income pilot is exciting, as it can pay dividends in the fight against poverty!

Genetic Ancestry testing is the new ‘go to’ thing if you are curious about what family secrets your DNA holds. There are many companies that offer this service; I chose Ancestry Canada. I ordered the kit, spit into the tube and waited while scientists in Ireland processed my saliva. After a few months, my DNA emerged in an email on my computer screen. I was not too surprised by the results as our family tree is pretty well documented but it was exciting nonetheless. What the test result did confirm was something Crowe family historian Ruth Kelly (deceased) mused about in her compilation ‘Crowe A Family From Nogies Creek’. “It is possible that the ancestral lineage of Abigail Pearson (my third great-grandmother) can be traced to a Francis Cooke, a passenger on the Mayflower which arrived in America in 1620.” One thing Ancestry DNA testing can now offer is something called ‘Genetic Communities’. This service provides regions of the world where you have common ancestors in cluster groups. These communities could be characterized by geographic isolation, or common ethnic or religious backgrounds. My ‘Genetic Community’ was strongly based in Colonial New England. This information coincides with family tree connections to Wilmington, Massachusetts. This part of your ancestry can also be linked to


June 2, 2017 - The Kawartha Promoter

recent historic events like the American Revolution, War of 1812, the Potato Famine and many other interesting occurrences. Ancestry Canada provides historical links to your DNA history. Ancestry Canada also provides Ethnicity Estimates that traces your DNA connections for thousands of years. This service is very broad; for example, my estimate turned out to be 64% Europe West, 22% Ireland and 6% Scandinavia. The remaining 14% is described as ‘other regions’ with 1% African. The really exciting part of DNA research is seeing how interconnected we all are to historic events, unvisited places and unknown relatives. It turns out I have 247 third and fourth cousins in New England. I never would have imagined that before DNA testing.

Step back in time and step into some fun

By John Crossen

June 17 and 18 will bring an exciting harvest from yesteryear to the Lindsay Fair Grounds for the Annual Heritage Show. Feast your eyes on a field filled with handsomely restored antique tractors and farm equipment. Or perhaps you’d prefer to take in the colourful hand-crafted quilts. Don’t miss the live alpacas that are sure to give the kids a giggle. Of course, you can’t have alpacas without a yarn-spinning demonstration. And it’s there too, along with kid’s games, toys, snacks and great country music for everyone. This year’s action features some original horsepower – a horse pull courtesy of the Central Canadian Horse Pulling Association. This brand new event is sure to bring back memories to a few and provide some great entertainment to the younger crowd. Then thrill to the roaring engines and flying dirt as the vintage tractors pull some wheelies along with their sleds. The grownup girls get down and dirty during the powder-puff pull. Plus there’s a pedal-pull for kids weighing less than 80 pounds. How were things done the old-fashioned way? Drop by the on-site lumber-cutting, shingle-making and gravel-grinding demonstrations. Some of this gear is 150 years old and still on the job. On stage Saturday are the Sunderland Line Dancers, and country singer Pat Arnott. She’s followed by fiddling and some good old-fashioned stepdancing with Andrew & Diana Dawydchak. On Sunday, the Touch of Class Cloggers turn on the tunes. They’re followed by Angie Austin & the Decker Hollow Band and Dave Barber’s country music. Admission to the show is $8 for adults while children under 12 years of age are admitted for free. Parking is also free. The event is organized by Kawartha Antique Power, an organization formed for the purpose of bringing together people with an interest in preservation, restoration, and exhibition of our heritage. Take a step back in time. You’ll learn something, even if it’s just how to smile again.

In recent years Masonry has come out of the shadows and more into the public eye. To celebrate the momentous anniversary, several of the lodges in the area will be opening their doors. Bobcaygeon: Tucked away in a tiny corner of downtown Bobcaygeon lays a cornerstone of its rich history.

The Cenotaph in the community of Buckhorn was erected in 1946 by the local Women’s Institute. It was first located on property occupied by the local Presbyterian Church at the corner of Main and John Street. The Lakefield Legion members, members of Buckhorn area community and led by Rev. Gordon Porter accorded the Buckhorn War Memorial full honours at a rededication ceremony in its current location at the Buckhorn Community Centre on November 9, 1980. Unfortunately, time and weather have taken their toll on the Cenotaph and a group of local residents have decided that it is time to erect an new one to remember the fallen local heroes from World Wars l and ll, and Afghanistan. As part of this project, a Memory Lane pathway will lead from the front sidewalk of the BCC to the new military monument, to be named Heroes of Yesterday. Members of the public and businesses are invited to participate in the creation of Memory Lane and the Heroes of Yesterday monument. This will be an opportunity to create a lasting memory with a beautifully inscribed granite Sponsor Stone with your own personal message. The Sponsor Stone will be placed along both sides of the Memory Lane walkway that will lead up to the new Heroes of Yesterday military monument. For more information, please visit

Roots & Ramblings


Dave Purdy is passionate about his motorcycle. So passionate, in fact, that he wanted to help others enjoy the hobby, too. So he started Cannonball Rides and offers up a series of motorcycle journeys across every province in Canada. The rides are one-, two- or five-day adventures, designed to take enthusiasts through some of the best roads each province has to offer. Dave says the rides are not easy and require great stamina to finish. But it’s also not a competitive event. The rides are free, there’s no entry fee and you could pick up some great free stuff along the way. The first series of rides for the season are June 6-10 (2500) and June 10 and 11 (500/1000). You can register at McGregor Sportsline on County Road 36 just outside Bobcaygeon. New this year is the Cannonball Rally™ Corvette Rally offering a series of corvette driving routes designed to get you out of the city and into the countryside where the great twisty and curvy roads are found. All of the roads are paved. The Corvette Rally is scheduled as follows: July 22 – 500 mile – 1 day July 22/23 – 1,000 mile – 2 days July 18-22 – 2,500 mile – 5 days For the Corvette Rally, you can register at Lakeside Auto Sales on County Road 36 just outside Bobcaygeon. You can find out more information about riding and the rally at

How did your tulips bloom this year? Mine are beautiful, plentiful and the special red and white tulips are wonderful. Could it be because of the large amount of rainfall this spring? May has given us quite a variety of weather, first cold then hot and then cold again. The storms are severe too knocking down trees everywhere. The weather has had an influence on the progress of beautifying Bobcaygeon and the surrounding areas by the Horticultural Society. Soon, though, we should be back on track. Lots will be happening for Canada’s Big Birthday this year in our area. The swing bridge flower boxes and the gardens will be ready for the “Unlock the Summer” celebrations on June 10. On June 15, we have booked a special speaker, Dan Cooper, master gardener and author of “Gardening from a Hammock”. This meeting is open to the public and admission costs $10 per person. It starts at 7pm at the Knox Presbyterian Church. It should be an enjoyable night. Looking forward into July, you will see us in the Canada Day Parade, July 1 and we will be holding our annual Garden Tour July 8th. This year it’s proving to be a winner. Watch out for posters around town and in other areas to advertise this event. It looks like it will be a gardener’s delight. Hope you enjoy all the activities this summer and the beauty around you.

With the April 21 issue of The Kawartha Promoter, we expanded our distribution to more than 36,000 homes in the City of Kawartha Lakes through Canada Post. We have discovered the people and history behind our rural mail service and, over the next few months, our newest Promoter family member, Kirk Winter, will bring their stories to you.


By Kirk Winter

It is an unfortunate fact of life that too many people today do not enjoy their jobs. Normajean Sutton, Post Mistress of Reaboro, is definitely not one of those people. In April of 2017, more than 100 friends and family gathered at the Sutton’s home to celebrate Normajean’s 50th anniversary running the post office in this steadily growing community between Lindsay and Omemee. Later in April, local community members were joined by executives from Canada Post who recognized Normajean for her long service to the corporation. She received a lovely commemorative plaque and letter from the Cabinet Minister responsible for Canada Post. When Normajean became Post Mistress on April 1, 1967, she was looking for a home-based business that would allow her to raise her three small children while earning some additional income. Little did she realize how long she would stay, or how important she and her post office would become to Reaboro. After the general store closed in 1962, the school closed in 1967 and the Baptist Church relocated to Omemee, Normajean’s post office became an important symbol of a community that was going to persevere and grow. Normajean has been called the “Ambassador for Reaboro”. It is the constant interaction with her customers, who have since become her friends, that keeps her coming back every day. Fifty families in the village, and 148 on the rural route delivered by Kelly Stefaroy, rely upon the friendly and helpful service provided by Normajean at her post office 20 hours a week. Normajean said she has “no intention of retiring anytime soon”. She is truly a lucky lady, and Reaboro is fortunate to have her.


It’s approaching summer time, and Mayor Andy Letham is hosting another round of his summer Town Hall meetings across the City. Everyone is invited to attend and hear about the recent developments, financial outlook and other topics of interest within the municipality. There will be time for questions and discussion throughout the program. The theme of the meetings this year is Finding the Balance. “We need to find a balance between our vision for Kawartha Lakes and what we are willing to pay for it,” commented Mayor Letham. “I hope to have some frank conversations about finding the right balance between our needs and wants as residents, cottagers and business owners in Kawartha Lakes.” The Town Hall meetings will be hosted in the

following communities this year. • June 8: Downeyville Hall, 7pm - 8:30pm. 340 St. Lukes Road, Downeyville. • June 10: Bolsover Community Centre, 11am 12:30pm. 12 Bolsover Road (Hwy 48), Bolsover • June 14: Pontypool Community Centre, 7pm 8:30pm. 254 John Street, Pontypool • June 21: Valentia Church, 7pm - 8:30pm. 106 Elm Tree Road, Valentia. • June 24: Dalton Community Centre, 11am 12:30pm. 13 Rumohr Drive, Sebright • June 26: Cameron Road Training Centre, 7pm 8:30pm, 710 Cameron Road, Cameron. • July 5: Norland Recreation Centre, 7pm - 8:30pm, 7675 Hwy 35, Norland • July 8: Burnt River Community Centre 11am 12:30pm, 16 Somerville Centre Road, Burnt River


Seniors make significant and valuable contributions to our families, communities and society. To support the community-based projects that support our seniors, the Federal Government has announced the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP). Applications are now being accepted for funding to assist 2017-2018 community-based projects that will work to enhance the health and well-being of our seniors, encourage them to be involved in the community, and help seniors to stay active in sharing their knowledge, skills and experiences with others. The NHSP call for proposals is open until June 23 and is seeking proposals for projects that are led or inspired by seniors. Organizations are invited to apply for funding for projects that promote positive aging and empower seniors to initiate and participate in activities that benefit the community. Eligible organizations can receive up to $25,000 in project funding. “Seniors contribute so much to our community,” says The Honourable Maryam Monsef, MP for Peterborough-Kawartha. “The New Horizons for Seniors Program will support projects that promote seniors’ volunteerism and civic leadership that will help keep them connected and active in our community. I encourage organizations to apply for NHSP project funding to provide our seniors with the opportunity to share of their knowledge and skills, and help shape and lead our community activities.”

Citizen Scientists Needed


On May 11, Canadian astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield brought his message of space to enthusiastic audiences in Lindsay. Col. Hadfield and his wife Helene surprised members of Community Living Central Highlands with a visit in the morning. Then Col. Hadfield spoke to 1,600 students from four school boards. His day was capped off with a standing ovation at the Academy Theatre in Lindsay. According to Ruth Tait of the United Way for City of Kawartha Lakes, “Col. Hadfield’s candid and humorous presentation instantly engaged the audience with insight into his experiences as an astronaut.” The event at the Academy Theatre raised $40,000 for the United Way.

Kawartha Conservation is looking for a dedicated group of volunteers who would like to take part in a water quality initiative on Sturgeon Lake. The project will involve collecting water samples and taking water temperature readings once per month from the end of a dock or waterfront property until August.   “We’re looking for a limited number of lakefront residents who would like to assist us by taking samples and collecting data during the summer months,” explained Water Quality Specialist Debbie Balika. “All of the bottles, coolers, thermometers and training will be provided to our volunteers.”   The data collected will provide Kawartha Conservation with baseline information for the lake, particularly focusing on nearshore data.   The volunteers will need to take samples and record the information once per month for a total of four samples during the summer months.   “It is critical to get a good sample size from around Sturgeon Lake in order to get a complete picture of nearshore lake health,” said Ms. Balika. “We very much appreciate the volunteers who have continued to take an interest in lake management planning and implementation and hope to hear from a number of interested volunteers for this project.” For more information or to volunteer for the summer sampling project, contact Debbie Balika at Kawartha Conservation by calling 705-328-2271 ext. 227 or emailing

Choristers Corner

Submitted by April Scott

It is a busy time for the Choristers at the moment. The Spring concert, Beatles and Upbeats, was presented on May 13th along with guest vocalist, Deliah Williams. The chairs in Trinity United Church were pretty much filled and the audience thoroughly enjoyed some very familiar tunes. It always seems a shame that so much work goes into a one-time concert, so the Choristers take their concert to local nursing homes. A few days after the concert at the church, we entertained some of the residents at Kawartha Lakes Retirement Suites, then mingled with the audience and enjoyed cookies and tea with them. A week later found us at Case Manor where we always get a room full of residents, family and staff to entertain. And what an audience -- they were singing along with us and toe tapping to the rhythm. We all felt quite at home.

Bob and Laura Plummer are off on a well-deserved vacation and will return for the final mini-concert on June 20 at Pinecrest Nursing Home after which we will be taking a break for the summer. However in July we will be holding a pig roast when we will be able to catch up on everyone’s news. Once we are back in September, we will be looking for new voices as usual, particularly in the Bass and Tenor sections. Think about it and we will get back to you in the Fall. It is unfortunate that we are losing yet another long-standing member. Caroline Eden, who has been our official communicator, is leaving town and she will be sorely missed. Our best wishes go out to you and please come back and visit anytime. Until next time, enjoy the warm weather, go to the Concerts in the Park and we will talk to you soon.

Weldon Student Heads for Advisory Council

More than 480 students applied for a spot on the 2017-18 Minister’s Student Advisory Council. Only 60 positions were up for grabs. The overwhelming response of applications made it difficult to choose final candidates to represent Ontario’s great cultural, social, economic, and geographic diversity. However, Connor Chase, a student from IE Weldon Secondary School, was selected from TLDSB. Connor loves public speaking, debate, and discussion, so the Student Advisory Council seemed like a great opportunity to pursue those interests. However, the primary motivation for him to apply was to articulate concerns about safe spaces in schools. “The teachers at IE Weldon SS are truly amazing,” says Connor. “I believe they really bolstered and encouraged my intuition to speak my mind and pursue the truth.” Connor is excited to have the opportunity to meet people with similar interests, and bring important ideas to the forefront. He believes he accomplished what he wanted to at the first meeting, which was spark discussion around Safe Spaces on May 4, 2017. As for post secondary goals, Connor plans on utilizing his skills in leadership and public speaking and continue to participate in student unions. His larger goals include pursuing a career in law. The Minister’s Student Advisory Council is a group of approximately 60 students from all over Ontario. These students share their ideas and provide advice to the minister on a variety of topics regarding Ontario’s publicly-funded education system.

The Legendary Downchild Blues Band is coming to Bobcaygeon as part of Unlock the Summer on June 10. What a thrill for me to interview the co-founder of the group, and one of Canada’s most beloved blues artists, Donnie Walsh. The group’s roots go back 48 years to their formation in Toronto in 1969. Since then, says Walsh, more than 120 musicians have played with the band and had their share of ups and downs. Their only hit single came in 1973 in the form of “Flip, Flop and Fly” and is today one of the band’s signature songs. In 2014, Downchild won a Juno Award for “Blues Album of the Year” for “Can You Hear the Music.” Seventeen albums later, Walsh continues to lead the group across the country performing for new and Donna M.

seasoned fans alike. “We’re still playing ‘jump blues’ with a New Orleans groove,” says Walsh. “We keep writing new songs and coming out with albums that people listen to.” Walsh says the key to their success is simple. “We stay on track with our style of music. The audience seems to like what we do, so we just keep doing it.” A new album is in the works with a release date later this summer. The audience at the concert in Bobcaygeon will get a preview. “Folks coming to the event should bring their dancing shoes,” says Walsh. OPENING ACT Lindsay’s Marc Ekins and his musical partner, Neil LaFortune (aka Sticks ‘n Tones) are the opening act. Marc is best known for his musical career in coutnry, but over the last 3 years, has evolved to deliver the diverse “roots” style. Their performance in Bobcaygeon will be a mix of original songs and covers, including some Spanish, reggae, rock, blues and, of course, country.

As numerous motorcyclists and off-road vehicle enthusiasts hit roads and trails, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is pointing out trends that can make these seasonal drivers vulnerable to fatal collisions.       According to OPP traffic data, a significant number of motorcyclists continue to be killed in collisions that are no fault of their own. In 2016, 10 of the 28 motorcycle drivers killed on OPP-patrolled roads were reportedly not at fault in the crashes that claimed their lives. The previous year painted an even grimmer picture for safe motorcycle drivers, with more than half (14) of the 27 who died

in road crashes in 2015 reportedly being not at fault. “This is the time of year when drivers need to keep a watchful eye out for motorcycles,” says Deputy Commissioner Brad Blair, Provincial Commander, OPP Traffic Safety and Operational Support. “Motorcyclists must always drive safely, defensively and assume that other drivers cannot see them - an all-too-familiar claim in motorcycles crashes. Off-road vehicle drivers have unique vulnerabilities too, but the majority who die are their own worst enemy through poor behaviours, such as riding while alcohol- or drug-impaired and without a helmet.” OPP data reveals the majority of deaths of offroad vehicle (ORV) drivers were directly linked to alcohol/drug impairment and riding without a helmet. Alcohol/drug impairment was a factor in more than half (13) of the 22 ORV deaths that occurred in OPP jurisdictions last year. While there were fewer ORV fatalities in 2015, six of the 14 deaths that year were attributed to an alcohol/drug-impaired ORV driver. Further stacking the odds of survival against ORV riders is driving without a helmet. Of the 22 riders who died in incidents last year, nine were not wearing a helmet. Helmets were even scarcer in 2015 incidents, with almost half of (six) of the 14 deceased riders found without one. The OPP is reminding all drivers, on and offroad, that driving defensively and safely will go a long way toward reducing deaths on Ontario roads and trails.

Have you heard BOB lately? BOB listened to you!


June 2 to June 15 Melodie McCullough

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) A little of what you fancy does you good, dear Aquarius. Sometimes, even a lot of what you fancy! So why not treat yourself to whatever those fancies may be? Take a little time just for you. Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) Do you know a young person graduating soon, Pisces? Give them some encouragement! It’s a tough world out there, with lots for them to learn and experience. A little boost will go a long way.

Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) Well, Leo, looks like it’s time for a change! Set your sails for some far-off adventure, but be sure to head back home once in a while to stay grounded. Happy trails! Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) A kind word can mean so much, Virgo! Even a simple ‘hello’ to someone who is not expecting it can brighten their day. Add a smile, and watch out! You may not know it, but you will be greatly appreciated. Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) In love, as in life, all things are possible, dear Libra. It may not seem like it now, but, according to the stars, the odds are in your favour. Get ready!

Aries (March 21 to April 20) Spring can be such a creative time of year, Aries. Have you noticed? So much growth and expectation around us! Join nature by creating something of your very own that shouts to the world, “Here I am. See me blossom!”

Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) As one of the four fixed zodiac signs, Scorpio, you are known for your determination, depth, persistence and stability. Your co-workers know they can depend on you for assistance and for getting the job done!

Taurus (April 21 to May 21) Trust your instincts, Taurus! Never doubt that inner voice that tells you when something may not be just right, whether in close relationships or unknown situations. Be safe, not sorry!

Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) As you move on with the newness that comes with change, Sag, don’t forget the ones who love you, the ones you may be leaving behind. Always appreciate what they have done for you, sometimes at a great sacrifice.

Gemini (May 22 to June 22) Patience, Gemini, patience! No doubt, that is what your parents taught you, as you can be somewhat impatient. And when you are experiencing stressful times, try to relax, meditate, or do whatever it might take to control this unruly creature!

Capricorn (Dec. 22 to June 20) Among your many traits, Capricorn, is the expectation of high standards for both yourself and others. When you cannot meet these standards in yourself, you feel like a failure. When others let you down, they feel your disappointment. You need to work at “letting go” of these, usually impossible, demands.

Cancer (June 23 to July 23) “They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”: Andy Warhol. If you want something to change, Cancer, most often than not, you have to take charge and make that something happen, using your own skills and, yes, following your own dreams. So, go ahead, make them happen!

Our Canadian Wehs

This is Part I of a three-part series that will celebrate Canada’s 150th written by Peter Howard. On Dominion Day back in ‘67 I was closing in on my 17th birthday. Despite all the hooplah, as of 1965, we had our own flag, and Canada was now officially 100 years young. Bobby Gimby’s, “Canadaaaaa” song was as ubiquitous as the national anthem; the Leafs had won the Stanley Cup and the Canadian mint had created a whole series of coins featuring Canadian wildlife “Holy Mackerel!” (on the dime that is). Expo 67 had kicked into high gear to showcase Canada to the world. There was even a Centennial tartan for the laddies and lassies. It was an incredible day and a special year for all Canadians. To make things even better, I had acquired my drivers’ license “Far Out Man!” To many Canadians one song rose above the rest to grab our attention. Gordon Lightfoot’s, “Canadian Railway Trilogy” seemed to capture the historical essence of our young nation and the railway’s role in binding this vast land together. In my mind’s eye, I can still see the CBC video which showcased the song in black and white on our old mahogany TV set back in January of that year. It was so good to be young and among the 20 million people who formed the backbone of our nation. This is not to say that there weren’t reminders of how we as a nation needed to improve. Chief Dan George set a tone of somber reflection on the plight

of our First Nations people in his speech, “Lament on Confederation”. In front of a crowd of 32,000 and accompanied by First Nations drummers, he told the other story. A story of exploitation, cultural deprivation and loss. It was a tale that desperately needed to be told. No one could have delivered the message better than this articulate native speaker destined for Hollywood fame for his role in, “Little Big Man”. So here we are quickly approaching, not Dominion Day, but Canada Day 150. It’s time to reflect on how far we’ve come and how far we have yet to go. Back in ‘67 Pierre Berton wrote a book, “The Last Great Year”. Despite the rather dour title, it actually reaffirmed the spirit of Canada’s truly great year. However, ‘67 was not in my humble opinion, the last great year for Canada. In the next installments, I’ll endeavour to tell you why.

It’s Easy Being Green Our Weird Green Family

By Julia Taylor

I have been on this green living journey for quite some time now, improving on small changes every time the last one became a new easy routine. Cumulatively, these changes have added up to living a lifestyle that is different from the norm; some would even consider it extreme. We have reduced our waste, gone chemical free, and reduced our consumption of everything in general, to name a few things. I say we, because even though I may be the main driver of changes in the way we run our household, and the main bringer of information upon which we base our decisions, and essentially the one who manages the household, in the end, my husband and I make our lifestyle choices, and parenting decisions together. It isn’t easy being different from our neighbors, family and friends. There’s a basic human need to fit in, to feel like we belong. When I see the eye rolling, and hear the whispering, I feel sad. It seems like it would be easier to give up and just “go with the grain”. It would be easier to not have to explain why we have made a decision or have a heated debate with someone to respect that decision. Then, just when I’m about to give up and say “eff” it, I remember why it’s so important. I remember that our larger outdoor environment, our household environment, and the environment within our bodies all directly affect us physically and emotionally. And we want to ensure that our family feels good today, next year, and 30 years from now. We know that, and we feel very strongly about that. So, I guess sometimes it’s not easy being green, but IT IS worth it!

Stewardship Summit

The Community Advisory Panel and Kawartha Conservation are hosting a half-day Stewardship Summit to gather community input on lake management plan implementation. Spearheaded by Community Advisory Panel Chair, Doug Erlandson and former Chair Chris Appleton, the Summit is intended to engage area full-time and seasonal residents and solicit input on lake management plan implementation projects and priorities. “The Summit is part of a multi-year, consultative lake management plan implementation process,” said Kawartha Conservation CAO Mark Majchrowski. “We have undertaken considerable public consultation in developing our lake management plans. This Summit is an important next step in developing project priorities as part of the implementation, and we are excited to work with the community to implement projects of benefit to them.” The Summit is planned for Saturday, July 15 from

It is open to anyone who would like to contribute ideas and be part of a discussion on lake management plan implementation. “This Summit will be a critical component in continuing to work with our communities to develop consultative priority projects for the short and longterm health of our watershed,” said Mr. Majchrowski. “We are looking forward to developing multi-year, long-term implementation budgets and strategies that address our community-focused lake management plans.”


Due to overwhelming popularity, Fleming College and Kawartha Conservation are adding a fifth week to the popular Nature Explorer Summer Camp for children aged 6 to 10 years old for August 28 to September 1. “The response has been incredible,” said Nancy Aspden, Coordinator, Environmental Programs/ GIS Specialist. “The number of registrations and inquiries for this year’s summer camp series has been overwhelming.” The week-long summer camps focus on fun, hands-on activities around environmental education and outdoor skills. Campers get to explore wildlife, get their hands dirty, participate in activities that teach outdoor skills, conduct water measurements and explore aquatic life, undertake experiments and much more. Both August camps sold out quickly, with limited space still available for the July 17 to 21 camp. The final camp week of summer will focus on birds, wilderness skills, wetlands, trees and nature art, aquatics and orienteering and map reading. For more information on the Nature Explorer Summer Camp, visit naturecamp or contact Nancy Aspden at 705-328-2271 Ext. 218 or email Naspden@KawarthaConservation. com to book your space before they’re gone.

Health & Wellness ALS – A PARALYZING ENEMY

Watching someone you know literally disintegrate from ALS before your very eyes can open your eyes to this tragic disease. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease, or motor neuron disease) is a disease that gradually paralyzes people because the brain is no longer able to communicate with the muscles of the body that we are typically able to move at will. Over time, as the muscles of the body break down, someone living with ALS will lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, swallow, and eventually breathe. Here are some statistics from the ALS Society of Canada: • More than 200,000 people around the world are living with ALS. • About 3,000 Canadians are currently living with ALS. • Each day in Canada 2 to 3 people die of ALS. • The lifetime risk of developing ALS is 1 in 1,000. • 80% of ALS sufferers die within 2 to 5 years. You might remember the internet sensation “The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge” of 2014. ALS Societies across Canada announced this endeavour raised $16.2 million from more than 260,000 Canadians. This represented a record for donations to the ALS community in support of Canadians living with ALS and ALS research from one event. ALS Canada allocated $10 million for research and $6 million to help ALS patients and their families. Brain Canada, with support from Health Canada, matched the research dollars of $10 million, bringing the total investment in ALS research to $20 million. By 2018, Canada’s ALS research effort will return to its traditional funding levels of $1.5 to $2 million per year. That’s why the generosity of donors plays such a critical role in ALS research in Canada – so they can continue to invest in ALS research at a time when it holds more promise than ever before.

More than 550 Kawartha Lakes residents visited a hospital emergency room in 2015 for dental-related problems, a situation that oral health advocates say needs to change. Instead, members of the local chapter of the Ontario Oral Health Alliance say the Ontario government should be investing in publicly-funded programs that can cover dental care and treatment for low-income adults and seniors. “Tax dollars should be used to treat or prevent dental problems, which will save money in the long run and ensure limited hospital resources go to the patients who really need the care,” says Anna Rusak, a member of the Ontario Oral Health Alliance’s Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock Chapter. The local chapter includes representatives from local health and social service agencies, who advocate for better access


While “sensorineural hearing loss” is caused by innerear hair-cell damage or problems with nerve pathways that lead from the inner ear to the brain, “conductive hearing loss” is related to problems conducting sound waves from the outer ear to the middle ear. While sensorineural hearing loss accounts for about 90% of all hearing loss and may generally be treated with a hearing instrument, a conductive loss is largely a medical problem that can be treated with medication or surgery. In some cases, conductive hearing loss can be treated simply by removing impacted ear wax that blocks the transmission of sound waves. With this in mind, it is recommended that everyone forego the use of cotton swabs to “clean” their ears. Most people begin to lose a small amount of their hearing from around 40 years of age. This loss increases as you get older. By age 80, most people have significant hearing issues. Another common cause of hearing loss is damage to the ear from repeated exposure to loud noises over time. To schedule a hearing test, please give us a call. We are committed to patient satisfaction, continuing education, and the application of current technologies. P.S. If left to its own devices, ear wax (cerumen) will migrate out of the ear canal, providing protection against bacteria as it goes.

to dental care for all residents. “People who visit hospital ERs with dental problems can only get painkillers, prescriptions for antibiotic or referrals to a dentist they couldn’t afford in the first-place,” Rusak notes. With an average Ontario hospital visit costing approximately $513, dental-related hospital ER visits by Kawartha Lakes residents in 2015 cost the health care system nearly $283,000. Says Rusak, “These funds would be much better spent on programs that cover oral care for adults and seniors who face dental problems, but cannot afford to see the dentist. It would certainly reduce unnecessary hospital visits and save health care costs in the long run.” Currently in Ontario, there are limited dental benefits for people on social assistance. Most other publicly-funded dental assistance programs are limited to children and youth 17 years of age and younger. Staff with the Dental Clinic at Community Care City of Kawartha Lakes echo the call for an expansion of publicly-funded dental programs to all low-income earners in Ontario, regardless of age.

With Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15, I thought it was important to do some homework and provide our readers with some information about this disturbing issue. So to start, here are some staggering statistics. According to the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada: * Every year an estimated 200,000, or 10 percent of seniors living in Ontario are victims of elder abuse and neglect * Experts believe that for every case of elder abuse or neglect reported, as many as 23.5 cases go unreported. * Every day eight seniors are victims of family violence. But Elder Abuse is not strictly physical and emotional violence. Here’s a statistic that will floor you. According to the Canadian government’s

Competition Bureau, it is estimated that from January 2014 to December 2016, Canadians age 60 to 79 lost almost $28 million to various scams. We spoke with Sergeant Tom Hickey of the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service about elder abuse. Although we were speaking by phone, I could see Tom shaking his head when we talked about this. “As a community of retirees and older citizens, we see an increasing number of cases of abuse, most of it involving scams that prey on the emotions of the victims.” Tom says seniors are more apt to respect authority, so if they receive a call or email from a government agency or their bank, they don’t ask the obvious questions about authenticity. Another disturbing trend, according to Sergeant Hickey is the incidence of Power of Attorney fraud. “You’re trusting your family members to look after you,” he says. “But what ends up happening is the family member will use that POA to take advantage of that trust.” As for physical abuse issues, Sergeant Hickey says the circumstances of the report dictate any police action. How to combat the vulnerability of seniors is something, Hickey says, the KLPS and their partners are working towards. “It’s important to have the conversation with your loved ones,” he says. “Continue to have contact with them and keep the lines of communication open. Let them know they shouldn’t be embarrassed about letting you, or us, know if they’re concerned about a possible scam.” We also reached out to Shauna MacEachern, the Seniors at Risk Coordination at Community Care about education. She said in an email, “Education, advocacy and assistance in accessing available community services and resources dedicated to elder abuse prevention are provided through the Elder Abuse Awareness and Education program.” Community Care holds free monthly information sessions, Tea & Talk for Seniors, that opens the lines of communication. You can find out more by emailing Shauna at or visit
