Since last August, I’ve been following the process that led to the transfer of Chiminis (Big/Boyd Island) from private ownership into the non-profit hands of the Kawartha Land Trust. From my perch it was such a feelgood story. That big, beautiful island is now protected from future private development and available for all to enjoy. And local individuals, families, organizations and businesses, as well as the municipality of Trent Lakes and Curve Lake First Nation, together dug deep and ponied up to make it happen. Thank you to the donor, Mike Wilson. When an organizer referred to the fundraising as a “whirlwind campaign,” I immediately thought of a chapter from my favourite book, Stephen Leacock’s Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town. The book—about the people of a small town much like ours in the


Kawarthas—is over a century old. But its people are timeless, as are their very human struggles, quirks and failings, portrayed by Leacock with gentle humour, and love. So I’m not surprised now, to suddenly find a fly in the ointment of this story (Whose island is it anyway, by Glenna Burns, page 9). By some very human miscommunication, some local Caygeonites whose families have long camped and cooked shore lunches on the island have now discovered these activities off limits. They feel hurt— and angry. I’ve seen some disturbing comments on Facebook that may be based on premature conclusions. I hope, in time, we can all—First Nations, long-time settlers, and more recent cottagers and retirees—learn to share this beautiful island in a good way. But Leacock would tell me there will always be flies in the ointment.

Let’s celebrate diversity

In an article I wrote for the Guest Column in The Kawartha Promoter a little over a year ago, I asked the question: “What is the problem with Muslims bringing parts of their culture, religion and traditions here?” I was reminded of this question when I read Mary Wilson’s response (Be like us, May 6, page 5) to John Bird’s editorial in the April 22 issue. When the niqab or hijab is worn because it is part of one’s faith, or is being used out of modesty or tradition, why are we concerned about it? Why are we even questioning that? The first wave of immigrants 400-500 years ago were mainly Europeans who brought their complete way of life with them from “the old countries,” and this became the Canadian way of life. They brought the Catholic Church and various denominations of the Protestant Church and many traditions that were foreign to the Indigenous peoples. The next wave of immigration from the Far East brought Chinese and Japanese immigrants who brought their religions and traditions. And now with an influx of immigrants from the Middle East we see new cultures and expressions of traditions and faith. But what is different between then and now? Why was it all accepted a long time ago as the norm and yet we are struggling with the faith and traditions of this latest group of new Canadians? As an immigrant myself, I so admire this country that is made up of the original population of Indigenous peoples with their faith, traditions and culture—which fortunately we are now beginning to recognize as essential to the fabric of this nation—

plus immigrants from all over the world, each of them adding to the rich mosaic that is Canada. Let’s celebrate that. We can learn so much from each other. Mieke Schipper Bobcaygeon

With a capital B

I am forwarding this email to you because I believe that your readers would be interested in knowing that the Trent Lakes half of the Hamlet of Buckhorn is the official capital of the Municipality of Trent Lakes, as stated by the Mayor of Trent Lakes in response to an email from me. I for one did not know this and I believe many of your readers might not be aware of this fact, and it explains why so many of Trent Lakes tax dollars are funneled into Buckhorn projects. Here is my original letter to Mayor Bev Matthews and Councillor Peter Raymond: I have printed and read the Community Improvement Plan for Buckhorn, Ontario. I am a resident of Oak Shores Estates. I have been told by long-time residents that there are in excess of 400 residences in Oak Shores Estates, and if you assume two adults per residence we have a community of at least 800 voters. Unfortunately, most of the people I have talked to in my community do not know anything about the Buckhorn Community Improvement Plan, mainly, I believe, because the Trent Lakes Council has not communicated this project to township residents other than those in Buckhorn. This Community Improvement Plan seems to be typical of the business conducted by Trent Lakes Council. I make a point of reading the minutes of all council meetings, and other than a new water system for Alpine Village, which the people have to pay for by means of additional taxes, and some local property severance and similar agenda items, the Hamlet of Buckhorn is the focus of council meetings. Page four of the Community Improvement Plan seems to indicate approximately 80 residential/ commercial properties within the area of the plan, and the Municipality of Trent Lakes is going to grant thousands of our tax dollars to a minority of residents of the municipality. This is in addition to the tax dollars the municipality spends on the Hamlet of Buckhorn each year in the form of grants to the Buckhorn Community Centre, support of the Buckhorn website, the Sports Pad, the ridiculous Tourist Information building and staff, and who knows

what else. What do we in Oak Shores Estates get from the municipality other than the usual road maintenance that every area gets? Basically we get nothing. You have taken our fire hall, and, in the way of the usual yearly grants, the last time I remember we received $1,000 while Buckhorn received many more thousands. You even have a councillor whose duty it is to be the liaison to the Buckhorn Community Centre. I find the council’s agenda completely unfair and demeaning to the people of Oak Shores Estates.

relief that Canada let you in, but then you don’t want others to be able to do the same. Mr. Berta you wrote of “many needy people” who should be getting attention, not Mid East refugees. I was born at night, but not last night. Your antirefugee bias is clear. You wondered why we make such a big deal of it? Mr. Berta, our little rural group, in less than a month, raised $28,000 and brought over a family of four who now reside in Lindsay. In February young Trudeau was in office promising a new Camelot; and we contributors have done something to make the world better. Our family and church members were happy that little old, normal people had done something most astonishing. Mr. Berta, your letter clearly shows you would have been happier had you been allowed into the USA where you could vote for the xenophobia of Donald Trump.

Anti-refugee bias

The Promoter arrived this afternoon and I promised myself a reading break after the evening work, and putting to bed a hot, two-year-old grandson. Of course, I first opened the Village Voice section, and scanned the letters from Peter Howard (Benevolent groups help many) and Lynn Schneider (Not a popularity contest, both May 6, page 4). Just a second, was my first reaction. I was in a hurry when I read Joe Berta’s original letter (I am a refugee, myself, April 22, page 4), and I now remember thinking at the time that the third paragraph seemed odd. Mr. Berta, this retired radio senior editor believes you are clearly out of line and have penned a letter that skirts the edges of unfairness and ingratitude. In Grade 4, I remember seeing pictures in Life magazine of Hungarians fleeing Hungary and trying to get to the safety of the Austrian border. I remember Hungarian kids coming into our classrooms speaking one of the world’s most difficult, Urdic languages. Later in life, I reinforced my Hungarian world view by being the announcer for the Hungarian show and an invited guest to the many Hungarian debutante balls. I went to university at age 42 and in my first course the professor still had a Russian bullet in his back from the ’56 revolution. Therefore, to see you lobbing in a soft lob of


Recently, I was working in my driveway when a couple pulled in. They were Chinese, very nice people. They told me they might like to retire up here. They asked me how the fishing was. I told them it was very good for pan fish. They asked if they could try it behind my house. I said: “Sure, go ahead.” They fished for two hours. I finished my work and went in to wash up.

When I looked out the window, I saw a neighbour drive up to them. I thought to myself: “Oh no. Really?” I saw the people gather their things up and start walking up the road, a big, black Chevy following behind them. I went out. The woman in the truck looked at me with a sour look on her face and said: “We don’t want those people down here.” I was ashamed. I did not know what to tell them. The man shook my hand, and the woman gave me a hug. They said this summer they will come to Emily Park with their boat and take me fishing with them. I can’t wait. I would really enjoy that. It still happens, even at Pigeon River. Mark Daniels Omemee

Save energy—pay more

I’ve just heard that the Ontario Energy Board (protector of public pricing) has allowed another increase in hydro rates for May 2016. The reason cited being a milder winter resulting in reduced consumption. For the past five years, the utility company (Hydro One) has been telling us the Smart Metering system will enable us to manage our electricity usage to reduce or minimize our consumption. Now the OEB is telling us that reduced overall

Thanks for caring

After recently having my third child, my family and I were left stranded without water—again. We have lived in our house for four-and-a-half years now, and have had continual water issues. The first time we were left without water, we called what we thought was a reputable company. They came out and “fixed” our water and we thought that would be the end of our troubles. We were wrong. Thousands of dollars later, days and weeks, off-and-on, without water, we came to realize that this company really had no intentions of fixing our water issue. They just wanted our money. After speaking to many people in the community, we found a company that came highly recommended. We are so glad we called them. They have been so kind and helpful. They came out right away, determined what the problem was and began the work. They explained everything they were doing and what should have been done in the first place. All of their staff were very friendly. We really do appreciate their honesty and hard work. So if you are ever in a predicament or frustrated with a business, don’t fret. There are still people out there who actually do care. Christina Lepine Bobcaygeon

Early birds wanted for walleye tourney

At 6:30-7:30 in the morning on May 28 and 29, the 280 fishermen and women competing in the 36th Annual Live-Release Canada/U.S. Walleye Tournament will be taking off from Little Bob Channel and passing under the bridge at CKL Road 24. Join us on the bridge. Our great mascot fish, Wally Walleye, will be there waving to the competitors. We would appreciate having folks from the community there to show their support for these anglers. These competitors will spend three-to-seven days in our area. They bring a lot of income to Bobcaygeon, so it would be great if we could have a large contingency waving to them as they leave for their day. About 40 of us did this last tournament and the anglers really appreciated it. Some even took pictures of us as we were taking their photos. Hope to see you May 28 and/or May 29, at 6:30 am. Lynda Wheeler (volunteer) Bobcaygeon


The town hall meeting in Bobcaygeon May 5, for Wards 13 and 7, was at times positive (the beach, houseboats, trails), at times negative (water rates, the sunshine list), and even at times a little ugly (taxes, firefighters and roads). Ward 13 Councillor Kathleen Seymour-Fagan started the meeting with the good news: • An aeration fountain will be installed at Bobcaygeon’s Beach Park, which should improve summer water quality. (She graciously recognized the work of the previous Ward 13 councillor on this project.) • CKL Road 24 will be repaved from the bridge to Scotch Line—including bike lanes. • House-boat traffic has increased by 20 percent, which could make Bobcaygeon the houseboat capital of Canada. • Economic development has increased since the addition of docks at the locks, and more expansion is being considered. Ward 7 Councillor Brian Junkin let the packed room know the city will require clear plastic bags for all garbage by January 2017. If recyclables are seen in the bags, the collector will leave them at the curb. This is to increase diversion of waste from landfills. Some questioned why the city doesn’t compost. It does, but only yard waste collected twice a year. There is no door-to-door collection of sourceseparated organics (which would include kitchen waste), and which will be necessary if the city is to reach its stated goal of diverting 70 percent of waste from landfill, instead of the current 40 percent. Local businessman John Snider—also a council candidate for Ward 7 in the last election—asked about the “sunshine list”. He said the number of employees on the “sunshine list” (over $100,000 annual income) has increased substantially in the last couple of years. Resident Peter Weygang expressed frustration with increasing water rates, which he said showed that council is “not listening to the taxpayers.” There were many outbursts from Ward 7 residents with road complaints who wanted to know why their roads get bumped from scheduled Donna M.

maintenance lists. They felt council lets staff make too many decisions. Junkin said winter weathering can cause safety issues so other roads get moved up in priority. Previous Bobcaygeon fire chief Reg Dewhurst and others questioned removing the three full-time firefighters from the Bobcaygeon hall. This could lead to deaths, they said, since firefighters are considered first responders when the ambulance is already engaged. These firefighters covered the Bobcaygeon hall during weekdays, when volunteers may have regular jobs. Bobcaygeon has a high concentration of seniors who depend on this service. Dewhurst said “previous councillors had fought hard to bring this level of service to Bobcaygeon”. The full-time staff must be reinstated, he said. The meeting ended positively when Richard Fedy from Environmental Action Bobcaygeon shared an exciting plan for walking and cycling trails in the village, including linkages to allow safer navigation and to touch historical and cultural points of interest throughout Bobcaygeon. The group is applying for funding to complete the plan this year. CKL Mayor Andy Letham will hold another town hall in Bobcaygeon on June 16.


The City of Kawartha Lakes’ ward system may be in for drastic changes. Council considered seven options that City Clerk Judy Currins presented to them in a recent report—including changes to ward structure, ward boundaries and the size of council—and chose three to move forward for public consultation. The three options the public will have a crack at are: • Adjust boundaries and keep the size of council at the status quo (16 councillors plus the mayor); • Create four wards with two to four councillors per ward (equals eight to 16 councillors); or • Create five wards with a total of 12 councillors. The city will ask the public to participate in the several-months-long consultation process beginning in early June. Mayor Andy Letham’s town-hall meetings this summer will include an overview of

the review and proposals, and an opportunity to provide feedback. City staff will also post an online survey and presentation outlining the options on its website—with hard copies available at service centres and libraries. It will contact business and community groups for their input, and to help reach their members. Then council will make its decision. All options support the majority of the four following guiding principles: • Representation by population; • Recognizing communities of interest (areas with common interests such as agriculture, tourism, seasonal and commerce); • Using physical features as boundaries (rivers, lakes and major highways); and • Providing effective representation (serving the interests of the city as a whole). “Kawartha Lakes has its challenges due to its geography, configuration, the number of communities, the uniqueness of the municipality and the natural water boundaries,” said Currins. “It became evident quite early in the process, that this exercise was more difficult than drawing lines on a map.” All the options were reviewed by Robert Williams, a public affairs consultant from Waterloo, specializing in municipal electoral systems.

OMB appeal confirms quarry approval By Glenna Burns

The Ontario Municipal Board has given the proposed Dewdney Mountain Farms mega-quarry at Nogies Creek the go ahead again, after reviewing an appeal of an original board decision in favour of the quarry issued Feb. 5, 2015.

OMB member Chris Conti’s May 3 decision noted that “the municipality has approved OPA (Official Plan Amendment) 41 and Zoning By-law No. B.2013-009. The board considers its decisions in this matter to have appropriate regard for the decision of the municipal council as required in s.2.1 of the Act (Municipal).” In other words, there was no real change to the initial OMB decision and the ball is now left bouncing back towards the Trent Lakes municipal council. Rumour has it the current council is considering whether it is legally possible to reverse the approvals issued by the previous council—and if so, whether it wants to do so. The next step for local residents who have been opposing this controversial quarry proposal will be to take it to provincial Divisional Court—if they have the money and personal energy to continue their to-date determined fight.

Trent Lakes Roundup By Glenna Burns

CONDO CONUNDRUM: T he word “condominium” roused the ire of many members of the Sandy Lake Cottagers Association who attended the public meeting at Trent Lakes on May 3. They feared a large condominium being constructed on 87 acres owned by the Smith family on Adam Cummings Road near Sandy Lake. But it was a misunderstanding, said family spokesperson, Brad Smith. “The family is trying to tidy up ownership” of the property with 10 family lots, and close up an unused road allowance called Arthur Drive (Fire Route 53) through the middle of the property. They had applied to Peterborough County for a “common elements plan of condominium.” Smith assured the public that “the family has no intention to develop lands west of Arthur Drive.” Peterborough County planner Diana Keay explained that in this case the term “condominium” refers to changing the “structure of land ownership only.” ONE DEPOT TO RULE THEM ALL: Council is deciding what to do about deteriorating public works sites and whether to consolidate them to a common spot. It asked staff to investigate the best coarse of action, but the existing 25-acre site on County Road 49 near Bobcaygeon seems favoured as a preferred spot for Public Works to settle in the future. NO ALTERNATIVE BURIALS: Acting clerk Kari Stevenson reported to council that municipal planner Chris Jones recommends council not support a proposal for the Nogies Creek Natural Burial Ground on lot 25, concession 17 in Harvey Ward. She said the Sandy Lake Cemetery has capacity for many more burials. Jones was concerned that planning for the proposal is only conceptual in nature and lacks detail with respect to physical design, risk management, faculty operation and management.

CHIPS AT FLYNN’S: The scent of deep-fried potato chips will soon be wafting through the air at Flynn’s Corners. After a no-objection public meeting, council passed a bylaw amendment to allow a chip truck near Flynn’s Store on County Road 507 at County Road 36.


Lindsay is one step closer to a Walmart store in town after the Kawartha Lakes planning committee recommended council approve a zoning bylaw amendment at its May 24 meeting. The amendment, requested by Mason Homes, will increase the grocery floor space permitted in a department store to accommodate the current Walmart-store design. Mason Homes first raised the Walmart issue in 2005, when it applied to develop a “Retail Power Centre” along Highway 35 at Colborne Street. Council approved this application in 2006, but a number of area landowners appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), and the city was eventually required to construct the Northwest Trunk to accommodate this and other possible developments. The Northwest Trunk finally went into service in June, 2015. If council supports the planning committee’s recommendation, Mason Homes will prepare the site so Fieldgate Development can begin building the Walmart store. Mason will develop residential homes in the vicinity. Detailed planning with both of these developers is ongoing. “We recognize that this has been a long road for all involved. We are pleased that the time has come to recommend this final step to council, and we look forward to the wide-reaching opportunities for growth and employment throughout our municipality,” said CKL’s Manager of Policy Planning, Richard Holy.



Kawartha Lakes and Sir Sandford Fleming College are getting a $58,700 grant to build one electric-vehicle charging station at the Lindsay Recreation Complex. That’s the estimated cost of a level-three charger station. An agreement between the province and city will be brought to council for approval.

The Kountry Kitchen Open 7 days a week 8:00am 115 kent st. w. Lindsay 705-878-8715

The grant is part of $20 million Ontario is investing from its Green Investment Fund to build a network of nearly 500 charging stations at over 250 locations in cities, along highways and at workplaces, condominiums and public places across the province next year. The aim is to make charging stations as readily available as gas stations to help address “range anxiety”—drivers’ concern about the distance electric vehicles can travel compared to traditional vehicles.

Whose island is it, anyway? —GUEST COLUMN—

By Glenna Burns

Volunteers with the Kawartha Land Trust began cleaning up and taking down structures on Pigeon Lake’s Chiminis (Big/Boyd Island) on May 6, after transfer of the island to KLT’s ownership and stewardship had been confirmed in March. But this clean up has become a lightning rod for some members of the community who believed (or were lead to believe) during last fall’s fundraising campaign that camping and fires would continue to be allowed on the island after KLT took over—along with the existing sites set up years ago by fishing guides. Many new residents to the area may not understand the cultural traditions associated

with camping on Big Island, or the sentimentality attached to these “shore-dinner” spots. In the past “The Island” was where everyone of a certain age— including myself and my friends—went to camp and get away from the probing eyes of parents or neighbours. “Back in the day,” we were all trespassing—and of course, Chiminis is part of Anishinaabe traditional territory. But that didn’t seem to be an issue for anyone. The tradition of going to the island was so engrained in people’s DNA that when the land trust offered to protect it, and people donated to last fall’s $1 million fundraising project, most did not expect that they would be the ones the island would be protected from. The fact is, we regarded the island as our own. But it never really was our own. Now it is. The goal of the land trust has been clear since the beginning of its campaign to buy Chiminis—to preserve and protect it. What was not clear was what that mandate meant. Jeremy Kennedy, whose great grandfather and grandfather Norman Swartman were long-time fishing guides, wrote a letter to KLT to protest the dismantling of one of his family’s “shore dinner” sites on the island. It was the last of some 60 sites that had existed there at one time or another over the past century.

“The news came as a surprise,” Kennedy wrote, “as a lot of family and friends had been under the false pretences that because the KLT met their fundraising goal to acquire the island and keep it from being developed, we would be able to continue to use the dinner spot for years to come.” KLT’s Mike Hendren says insurance issues left the organization with no choice but to move forward with the island clean up and camping/fire ban. This is a complex and complicated, not to mention fastmoving, venture for an understaffed land trust. The newly founded management team will have its hands full getting it right for our well-loved island. Where does this leave a saddened segment of the community? Well at least now we all have equal access to Big Island to hike, picnic, fish and swim. We won’t be trespassing and no one will ever be able to develop it again. Perhaps we won’t be so inclined to leave our party evidence behind either. KLT volunteers removed bags and bags and bags of garbage in their cleanup. KLT will hold an open house at the Bobcaygeon Service Centre on May 28 from 10 am to 1 pm to discuss ideas for future plans for the island and to explain its position on camping and fires. Kawartha Promoter writer Glenna Burns (née Crowe) is a life-long resident of Bobcaygeon, who camped and partied on Big Island in her youth and more recently supported KLT’s campaign to save the island from development.

Check out the many booths in the BobcaygeonVerulam arena at the free Sporting Outdoor Show. You’ll find boats, and all kinds of fishing and outdoor gear—enough to outfit yourself to become one of the competitors in next year’s event.

With spring’s arrival in the Kawartha Lakes, the Fenelon Station Gallery will be opening its doors for the 2016 season on the May long weekend. This year, the gallery welcomes four new artists: • Jan Anderson: Unique quilted fibre artwork • Janis Huisman: Weaver • Pat Orton: Wood carver/outdoor sculpture • Anne-Marie Van Brunt: Fused glass jewellery and decorative items These artists will complement the 12 artists with the gallery from last season to make this year’s gallery visit a fulfilling one. The gallery hopes visitors will include it in their next visit to Kawartha Lakes. “And if they like what they see,” said a gallery spokesperson, “maybe they’ll spread the word about the gallery’s excellent, home-grown artists.” The Station Gallery welcomes groups visiting by

bus, motorcycle, classic cars, boat (it’s only a fiveminute walk from Lock 34), or the more energetic cyclists who may be passing by on the Victoria Rail Trail. If you’re having a girls’ weekend or shopping day, the gallery has a wide selection of affordable gifts and art for the home.  One of the 16 artists will always be on hand to welcome shoppers. Opening day is Saturday, May 21 from 10 am to 5 pm.  See the gallery’s website fenelonstationgallery. com for more information on dates and hours of operation and also artist information.


Cartoon characters, superheroes, indoor and outdoor games and crafts, wacky hair and face painting will all be part of the City of Kawartha Lakes 12th annual Family Gala on Saturday, May 28. There will also be a special appearance by the Sacred Spirit Dancers and a giveaway of gently used clothing, toys, books and sports equipment—not to mention a free lunch. The event runs from 9 am to 1 pm at the Boys and Girls Club, 107 Lindsay St. south, and many local agencies will also be on hand to let families know about resources and services available in Kawartha Lakes.

Business and Services

Crazy Monkey Tree Service is a tree care and removal business serving Bobcaygeon, Lindsay, Fenelon Falls, Cameron, Coboconk, Norland, Buckhorn, and Dunsford areas. We offer a variety of services from lot clearing, tree pruning, tree cabling, and stump grinding, to hazardous tree removal and insurance work. We also offer free estimates and consultations.

Why Hire Us

Tasks such as tree removals can be extremely dangerous for individuals that are not trained to do so safely. Hiring professionals to do such jobs is a great way to prevent any possible injuries/damages that may occur if these tasks are completed improperly. We offer advice regarding the removal as well as tree care. Crazy Monkey is also fully licensed, liability insured and covered through WSIB for workplace safety. This reassures customers that any injuries and/or damages that could occur on the job site are completely covered.

Emerald Ash Borer

The emerald ash borer is a small insect that damages and kills trees within one to four years of infestation. The ash borer has just recently become more prevalent in central Ontario. The fact that it has very few natural enemies, combined with the fact that native ash trees have limited resistance to attack, these insects have become a major problem very quickly. Typically, within six years of a woodlot infestation, more than 99% of the ash trees will have been attacked and killed. The prevalence and area infested by ash borer is expected to continue to expand, mostly through the movement of infested material such as firewood. Trees affected by the ash borer become a hazard as they become weak, and because of this, it is recommended you get your ash trees inspected. If your trees have been infested, they may need to be removed to prevent further spread of disease. However, trees can also be injected with insecticides to protect them from being attacked by the ash borer. Our company supervisors are more than happy to take a look at any questionable trees and make suggestions to mitigate the infestation.

Coby-Norland Chamber— Two years already?

By Jennifer Wilson

What began two years ago as a business group has evolved very quickly into an organization with community interests at heart—knowing that a strong business and social community will attract new businesses, residents, and employment to our area as well. As one founding member of the Coboconk, Norland and Area Chamber of Commerce (CNACC) board expressed it, “We came together to answer the question: How do we help our community? We decided that the Chamber of Commerce model was the best way to accomplish this.” When the CNACC was formed two years ago, it made history as the first new Chamber of Commerce in Ontario in a quarter century. We started with 102 members, one staff person two days a week, and in donated office space in the back of a local Coboconk. In two years, some amazing things have happened—several funding commitments, numerous successful projects, and an incredible show of engagement from residents in improving our communities. One of our first big successes was to get a commitment from the Ontario Trillium Foundation for $122,500 to help us ramp up our community

g n i n n i W rd


activities and events, and to grow our ability as an organization to be a community hub. The grant helped us gather our voices together and work towards a vision for what Coboconk, Norland, and Rosedale could become in the future. Now we are an organization with staff four days a week, a street-front office location in downtown Coboconk, and 133 members—including businesses, community organizations, churches and cottage associations—all working together to draw resources and energy to our area to make real change. We also have an incredible base of assets from which to develop a strong tourism component for our local economy. However, these assets will require further development—from infrastructure and capital investment to well-designed marketing programs— in order to make tourism a successful part of our economy. We are so fortunate to have many great community partners involved in these efforts – there are not many chambers who list cottage associations, churches, service organizations and other non-profit organizations on their membership list. With all of us working together, we can’t help but strengthen our communities and help our businesses grow and prosper. Jennifer Wilson is the general manager for CNACC.

Sustainable landscape photo contest


What does a healthy agricultural landscape mean to you? Does it make you think of new life? Food? Wildlife? The soil your family traditions are deeply rooted in? Whether you’re an amateur or professional photographer, the Soil Conservation Council of Canada (SCCC) wants you to share your photos in a contest depicting healthy agricultural landscapes in Canada. The contest—open for submissions from now to Oct. 31—aims to show Canadians what sustainable farming in this country really looks like. Canadian farmers know that to be sustainable they have to care for soil, air, water and wildlife, says SCCC chair Paul Thoroughgood. It’s not just about

productivity. Farms are directly linked with issues like greenhouse gas emissions, carbon sequestration, water quality, air quality and biodiversity. The photo contest will have one winner in each of four categories: soil, water, air and biodiversity. Winners will all receive a one-year free membership to the SCCC and a $100 gift card.

Artisanal Cheesemaker Pieter van Oudenaren packs the wheel forms with curds to make Mariposa Dairy’s Lindsay Bandaged Goat Cheddar.

Mariposa Dairy—The cheese stands alone

By John Bird, editor

Artisanal cheesemaker, Pieter van Oudenaren had the excellent work of his small artisan team well rewarded in Montreal last month, when he returned home heavy laden with six medals around his neck

from the Canadian Cheese Awards. Pieter, who has been working with Lindsay’s Mariposa Dairy since 2009, is the lead artisanal (meaning small batches with lots of personal attention and hand work) cheesemaker, specializing in the company’s hard cheeses. And that’s where his work shone at the Canadian awards. When we visited Mariposa’s cheesemaking operation in Lindsay’s northeast quadrant, Pieter was hard at work putting up another batch of the awardwinning Lindsay Bandaged Goat Cheddar. Starting with 2,000 litres of goat’s milk, he will end up with 10 wheels of cheese weighing approximately 19 kilos each—a yield of just under 10 percent—once they’ve been aged for a year. He called the wins “quite an honour and a surprise knowing the fantastic cheeses in the competition. Our cheese is made by a team—from the goat and sheep farmer to the cheesemakers at Mariposa Dairy and the distributors at Finica.” Here’s the list of Mariposa’s wins from the Canadian Cheese Awards. If you’re looking for them, all are listed as Lenberg Farms Classic Reserve cheeses by Celebrity (a marketing name for artisan cheese from Mariposa Dairy): • Lindsay Bandaged Goat Cheddar: Best Goat Cheese, and Best Old Cheddar (9-18 months aging) • Zoey: Best Blended-milk Cheese, Best New Cheese (introduced 2015), and Best Mixed-rind Cheese • Tania: Best Ontario Cheese The Canadian Cheese Awards is the first cheese

Ask Tina what love’s got to do with it

The Canada-wide PTSD Awareness Tour—Hope Beyond Thunderdome 2016—brings Luisa Marshall as Tina Turner (and more) to the Boycaygeon Legion, Friday June 17. Luisa is the World Rock N Roll Tribute Artist Champion, and has been featured on the Ellen Degeneres show, where she received a 25-second standing ovation after being mistaken for the real Tina Turner. (Look her up on youtube if you don’t believe me -ed.) Years ago, when Luisa toured before international troupes in Bosnia, Sarajevo, Israel and Egypt, her most requested song was Tina Turner’s hit, We Don’t Need Another Hero (Thunderdome). She realized Thunderdome was a metaphor of the state these young soldiers were in, and that they needed hope. And thus, this show was born to raise hope— and money for veterans. Admission is $25, with $5 to go to the Veterans Transition Network to help Canadian veterans transition back into Canadian society after their service, and to deal with issues like post-traumatic stress disorder ( Luisa brings much more than Tina to this multidiva performance, which may include songs from her other favourite divas, like Shania Twain, Etta James, Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse and Donna Summer.

Lots of crowd interaction and entertainment is promised in this intimate solo show. Tickets are available at the Legion, or online at

Choristers Corner Songs and stories

By April Scott

The writer of this column has just spent two weeks in sunny Turkey, hence the omission in the last edition. Back to practice last Tuesday and yet another piece of new music. It is good to hear all these familiar songs coming together. The choristers continue to have a sing-a-long with some

of the residents. Laura Plummer does a wonderful job of leading this every week and is now adding short amusing stories into the bargain. The songs she chooses are usually themed with the time of year. We can’t wait until she chooses “Summer days are here again.” The wonderful cookies and beverages that arrive in time for the break give the choristers a chance to visit with the audience for a while. The choir continues to be grateful to


Kawartha Retirement Suites for its generosity. Remember if you have a special event and would like some short entertainment, please call Laura Plummer at 705-7311060 to make arrangements. Or contact us on our Facebook page. On May 22 there will be Celebration of Life for Jannine Hill who was a loyal and committed chorister. She passed away a few months ago. Several members of the choir will be attending to remember this lovely lady. Till next time, enjoy the long weekend and watch the boats go through the locks.

It’s Easy Being Green The Lazy Green Cleaner

By Julia Taylor

I used to think that “going green” at home meant that I had to “do it myself” and make all my cleaners. Little did I know that having a toxic-free cleaning routine is the exact opposite. In fact it’s so easy, and cheap, and effective that I have never

looked back. Here’s how you do it: Next time your regular cleaner is empty, fill it half full with vinegar and top it up with water. That’s it. Use it for everything (and baking soda for everything else). My biggest challenge to the switch was the scent—and bubbles. Cleaning with vinegar smells like . . . vinegar.

May 20 – June 2 Melodie McCullough

Aquarius (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19) An ode to old age— “For age is opportunity no less than youth itself, though in another dress, and as the evening twilight fades away the sky is filled with stars, invisible by day”—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. What a beautiful thought to carry us into the future with the knowledge that the best is yet to be. Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) Feeling a little low because of someone’s reactions directed at you, dear Pisces? Remember this: when someone is nasty or treats you poorly, don’t take it personally. It says nothing about you but a lot about them. What it says about them is that life hurts and they haven’t found a way to cope with it. Here’s hoping they do some day. Aries (March 19 – April 20) Don’t be bullied into speaking out when what you really want to do is stay quiet, Aries. Listening is an important skill, and if everyone is talking, no one is listening. So sharpen up those ears. Taurus (April 21 – May 21) Take heart, Taurus— literally. Because someone is watching you with deep appreciation—love?—and is just waiting for the right moment to let you know. Gemini (May 22 – June 23) Can you find something to be happy about today, Gemini? What about tomorrow, and the next day, and the next? There is always some little thing, if we stop to notice, that will lift your spirits. Cancer (June 23 – July 23) It’s time to take some baby steps. We know you have a daunting task ahead,

and there are not many helpers rushing to your side either, Cancer. So take it slow and steady—one minute, one hour, one day at a time. Leo (July 24 – Aug. 23) Leo, your star, as always, is shining bright. But don’t let it burn out. Take care of yourself. You are so worth it. Virgo (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23) Ignore those who are trying to build walls around you, trying to contain you in some way, Virgo. Don’t let anyone box you in. Libra (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23) We really don’t need more and more material items to make ourselves feel good, do we Libra? It’s a losing game. Be content with what you have. But don’t be content with the person you are. There’s always room for more in that department. Scorpio (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22) What a difference a smile can make. You know yourself that when someone smiles at you unexpectedly, the world becomes a better place. So return the favour, dear Scorpio. Light up someone’s world. Sagittarius (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21) Beware false friends, Sag. We think you know who we are talking about. Be nice, go along with the flow, but always keep in the back of your mind who is real and who is not. This is a good skill to have. Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20) There is an old saying, Capricorn, that when we give something in one hand, something will be returned to us in the other hand. So do that good deed—knowing that you are helping someone—and also that you will be rewarded.

Minaajim: Good Stories from Curve Lake First Nation Baskets and Buttons

As told by Doug Williams to Julie Kapyrka

Another fond memory I have of NOKOMIS (my grandmother) is of the many activities we did together, in particular making baskets—and all of the undertakings that entailed. Every year she expected me and her brother Madden to go into the swamplands and harvest BAAPAAGIGUN (Black Ash trees) for her. We would fell the trees and carry those logs on our shoulders over to our canoes and carefully paddle across the lake with those trees in our canoes. It was not easy. When we got the logs home, we would pound on them. This was called BAAPAAKEGEHWIN (pounding into splints). When you pound this kind of tree, the annual growth rings will separate into splints. You use the splints to make baskets. NOKOMIS was very well known for her basketry and would make any size, from small dainty baskets to huge hamper and laundry-basket styles, all made out of wood. These were extremely durable and there must still be some around this area, especially amongst the cottagers. I remember we would load up the canoes with baskets and I would go and help her trade and sell them to farmers, cottagers, and settlers. We would trade and paddle along the shores of Chemong Lake, Buckhorn Lake, Pigeon Lake, and Sturgeon Lake. She would knock on doors – she had her favourites. I remember one time she got me out of bed. “We have to load the canoes. I want to go to Sturgeon Lake and Fenelon Falls tomorrow and we will spend the night in Bobcaygeon. Make sure you have blankets.” We started out about mid-morning and paddled to Bobcaygeon. It would take us until about 4 pm to get there, but it was a casual paddle and we fished along the way. We got a bass in a bay at GCHI MINIS (Big Island) and then we proceeded to the Taylor camp on the far end of Bobcaygeon Island.

There was always someone at this camp ready to greet travellers and offer a place to stay. Murney Taylor, a young, very handsome man about 25 years old, was the only one there looking after the camp. He had a four-walled canvas tent set up. He was so happy to see us and he welcomed us so warmly. We had a wonderful meal of bass which we made into a stew. Then I slept and I remember the wonderful aroma of cedar boughs that covered the ground under me while NOKOMIS and Murney told stories deep into the night. Bright and early the next morning we headed out onto Sturgeon Lake. NOKOMIS would drop into places and sell and trade her baskets—mostly trade. We would get items like food and clothing. My grandmother was so happy. We would end up in Fenelon Falls and we would get some candy and maybe a drink—go walking around downtown—she liked a store there. Then we would go back, sleep at Bobcaygeon and get back to Curve Lake the following day. Oh what beautiful memories. Except when we would trade her baskets with this one couple who would always give us buttonless clothes. I called them Mr. and Mrs. Buttons. NOKOMIS did not like that . . . but that is another story.

25 years of customer service By Belinda Wilson

In 1991, 21-year-old Shawn Bellwood had a plan. He would purchase a propane delivery truck and deliver to trailer parks for the summer, then park the truck in October and continue with his job at the Fenelon Falls arena in the winter. Shawn, along with brothers Andy, 14, and Jim, 9, started selling 20-lb refills for $9, but soon raised the price to $10 because carrying loonies around for change was awkward. As Shawn was preparing to hang up the keys for the winter, a construction company working near Dorset called. They needed their 100-pounders refilled regularly over the winter. That kick-started Highlands Propane into a fulltime business. Still living at home—with a computer desk, a separate phone line and answering machine in his bedroom serving as head office— Shawn quickly expanded to include service and installations. In 1994, he purchased what was known as “The Truck Stop,” on Hwy 35, and the business really took off.

Over the years the fleet has expanded, as has the staff—from three to 23. There are eight office areas, and the fleet includes seven delivery trucks plus several service vehicles. They deliver propane six days a week, and are available on call 24/7. Two 30,000 gallon tanks, installed in August 2015, ensure that Highlands is able to meet the demands of its ever-growing customer base, as well as being better prepared in the event of an emergency, fuel shortage or other unexpected situation.

Saturday, May 28, at Kawartha Settlers’ Village on Dunn Street. The gate opens at 9:30 am and the sale continues until the last daisy is gone. We’ve been hosting a successful sale for years, and the proceeds from this major fundraiser go towards our costs of planting over 30 public gardens in our community for the pleasure of residents and visitors alike. We will have a good selection of shrubs and many hardy flowering perennials all grown locally by our members, and from Rural Roots Gardens Dunsford. Everything has been potted last autumn or earlier this spring so they are completely transplantfriendly. Prices are from 20 years ago. There will also be a table or two of gently used and reasonably priced tools, PLUS interesting decorative items for your garden, deck or patio. Several of our members will be present to share their knowledge and help you make good choices for your home or cottage garden. Buying locally is as important now as it was when we first started the campaign a number of years ago. The best quality plants are those available from local producers so do not be misled by the truckloads of inferior product that crop up in the parking lots of big-box outlets or corner stores. See you on Saturday, May 28.

Environmental Action Bobcaygeon (EAB) hosted more than 120 Grade 6, 7 and 8 students from Bobcaygeon Public School at Bobcaygeon’s Wilderness Park to celebrate Earth Day this year. Before planting two ceremonial shade trees, EAB volunteers lead each class to one of four naturethemed activities: • Under the supervision of professional forester John Bush, the students planted their own small white cedar tree, then marked it with their name. • Peter Skelton, who has found more than 1,750 geocaches in Canada, England, New Zealand and the United States, introduced the students to geocaching. Most students were able to find the two well-hidden caches in Wilderness Park. • Retired minister Walter Murray and retired teacher Paul Follett, led students for short hikes along the trails of Wilderness Park, with frequent stops for nature interpretation. • Active gardener, local farmer and keen environmentalist, John Bick, supervised the planting of wildflower seeds, and general grooming of the park’s large pollinator patch. The students showed their appreciation for this year’s Earth Day celebration by conducting an extensive litter clean-up along Wilderness Park Road.

Nina Martin—World traveller

Nina Martin, with her backpack on and her cane in hand is still traveling the world at the impressive age of 80. She may hang her hat somewhere between Bethany and Yelverton, but she’s not often home. In fact, she’s made 12 long-distance voyages to all parts of the world in just the last six years. The former teacher, born in England, discovered her love for travel with a high school trip to Paris. She and her husband explored the world together until his passing—after which Nina has continued her passionate journeying solo. The sprightly traveler never lets age stand in her way. This spring she jumped on a plane, like she’s done for the past 60 years, and headed out to explore Tibet and Nepal in the high Himalayas. Other recent travel destinations have included:

the Azores off north Africa . . . Madagascar and Mauritius in the Indian Ocean . . . the French islands of St. Pierre et Miquelon near Newfoundland . . . the south-Atlantic Falkland Islands. . . Norway, Denmark and the Faero Islands . . . and Aruba, Curacao and Trinidad in the Caribbean. It’s hard to find a place she hasn’t visited. “I’ve learned so much just by helping plan her trips,” says Carrie Hamilton, Nina’s trusted consultant at Kawartha Lakes TravelPlus. “You have to get into the nitty gritty of wherever she’s going.” Nina loves nothing more than extended budget trips around the world, taking local buses and trains, carrying her own backpack, staying in hostels, soaking up the sights and meeting people. Here’s Nina’s secret: “You sit in the middle of some square and everyone comes to you. You mix with the local people—until you come to understand how they live, what they’re doing and why. I love it.” (Nina’s favourite phrase, which truly reflects her passion for life and adventure). Asked about her favourite destinations, Nina replies without hesitation: New Zealand and Norway. The scenery in both places is spectacular, she explains. “But really, it’s the people. So hospitable and gracious, wherever you go. As you get older, you find people treat you with more respect.” At Kawartha Lakes TravelPlus, Lindsay, they’re all waiting expectantly to see where Nina Martin decides to go next.

Don’t forget this ‘Evening to Remember’

The Community Care Foundation promises its annual Care Gala fundraising event for Community Care City of Kawartha Lakes (CCCKL) will be “An Evening to Remember.” The fifth annual dinner and auction will be held Thursday, June 9, at South Pond Farms, Pontypool. Dr. Hazel Stewart, Director of Dental and Oral Health Services with the City of Toronto Public Health, will be the guest speaker at the event. Stewart is a long-time advocate for health equity, and is a respected health professional throughout North America. This year’s Care Gala has “a new look and a new location,” says foundation Executive Director Linda Reid. The magnificent setting and delicious meal, she adds, will be complemented by popular jazz and Broadway show tunes provided by Broadsway, an energetic trio of talented women performers. Proceeds from the ‘Evening to Remember,’ says Reid, will support CCCKL’s low-cost dental clinic, which receives no government funding. The clinic was opened in 2011 to provide affordable oralhealth care to low-income individuals and families in Kawartha Lakes. Tickets ($125) can be purchased at Scotiabank, 165 Kent St. W., Lindsay.

The Peterborough Wolverines and the Huronia Stallions football teams have created a special trophy — the “Cottage Cup” — that will go annually to the organization who does the best in the three games the teams play against each other during the regular Ontario Football Conference (OFC) season. Why the Cottage Cup? Simply because Barrie represents the Muskokas and Peterborough the Kawarthas, both in the heart of cottage country. The initial challenge for the Cup will take place this summer when the three Wolverines teams travel to Barrie on Saturday, June 25, to face the Stallions. The winning organization will have the trophy engraved and retain it until the next season when it will be contested again. Both the Stallions and the Wolverines have created a strong rivalry over the last five years and this new trophy should kick it up a notch.

Flag waving winners

The Semaphore Team for the Fenelon Falls NLCC (Navy League Cadet Corps) Adanac returned as triumphant Ontario champions recently from the Navy League Provincial Competitions at NLCC Cataraqui in Kingston. In its first regional or provincial competition in six years, NLCC Adanac went up against five regional winning teams from around the province. Semaphore is a system of sending messages by holding two flags in different positions signifying alphabet letters. Each team is given a message for two members of the team to send to another two members. Scoring is based on accuracy and speed as the teams must send and receive more than 100 letters in only 15 minutes. The Navy League Cadet Corps program uses a naval theme as a platform with young people to develop patriotism, good citizenship, a sense of duty, self-discipline and respect for others. It is open to youth aged 9-12 years, at no cost. For more information about NLCC Adanac, call Lieutenant Richard Wackernagel at (705) 886-0051.

Health & Wellness Stakes are high on e-cigarettes

By Rosana Salvaterra

What are Bubblegum, Snickerdoodle and Sweet Tarts? They are flavours for e-cigarettes, meant to entice youth to try this new device. The many brands, flavours, and associated e-cigarette materials are being aggressively marketed through traditional media, online, and in case you’ve missed it, Hollywood celebrities have already been photographed using e-cigarettes. Locally, a survey of Peterborough high school students has found that 24 percent of students reported trying e-cigarettes. The proportion of students trying e-cigarettes increased through each grade, from 15 percent in Grade 9 to almost 30 percent by Grade 12. They have emerged as a hot new trend in Ontario. In the past couple of years, all three major tobacco companies have purchased existing e-cigarette brands and launched their own brands. A senior investment analyst with Wells Fargo Securities estimates that e-cigarette sales could surpass cigarette sales within the next 10 years. But much of the science on e-cigarettes is still emerging. Although some jurisdictions welcome these devices as another method to help smokers quit, we still do not know whether or not they are effective that way—there is not enough evidence to support the claim so far. It is true that e-cigarettes are most certainly less harmful than regular cigarettes as they do not contain tobacco. E-cigarettes contain a power source and heating element designed to produce a vapour that can be inhaled by the user. But they may pose a risk to the user, both in the short term and the long term. The vapour may or may not contain nicotine. Perhaps the biggest reason Ontario has decided to put the brakes on e-cigarettes is the risk that they may once more make smoking okay. That would undo years and years of hard work to de-normalize smoking—to make it no longer a rite of passage or expected behaviour (just watch any film or archived

broadcast from the last century where cigarettes were often featured in a supporting role). In response to the changing market and potential risk, especially to youth, Ontario has recently passed legislation that bans the sale or supply of e-cigarettes to anyone under the age of 19. But those regulations are not in force, yet. In my opinion, the uncertainty of the effectiveness of the e-cigarette as a quit-smoking tool, the lack of regulation of the manufacturing of the devices and the e-juice, concerns about safety, the increasing investment by the tobacco industry, and the strong marketing and promotion of e-cigarettes, all warrant a precautionary approach to protect youth and young adults of Ontario. This is a high stakes game. Tobacco is the only legal substance that kills 50 percent of its users. Given the risks, we need to take whatever time is needed before we issue a final verdict on e-cigarettes. The jury is still out. Dr. Rosana Salvaterra is the Medical Officer of Health for the Peterborough County-City Health Unit.

One for Lindsay quitters (smoking, that is)

The STOP program (Smoking Treatment for Ontario Patients) is coming to Lindsay on Wednesday, June 15. STOP offers smokers five weeks of free nicotine patches, as well as educational material and other resources to help them quit. “Nicotine patches can be costly, but really improve the chances of quitting smoking,” says Karen Taylor, a Public Health Nurse with the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit, which is partnering with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health to bring the program to the area. “For that reason alone, it is worth finding out more about STOP,” which you can do by calling the Health Unit toll-free at 1-866-888-4577.

The local health units are urging parents and caregivers to make every word count when it comes to their child’s speech and language skills. “By playing, talking, listening and reading with your child now, you can have a positive impact on your child’s speech and language development that will last a lifetime,” says Shelley Shaughnessy, a Family Health Nurse with the HKPR District Health Unit. “A child needs well-developed communication skills to make friends, learn new things and to start reading and writing,” she points out, stressing the importance of identifying communication delays or problems in a youngster as early as possible. Approximately 10 percent of all Ontario preschool children have a communication delay, which if not identified early on, can lead to future problems. Both the Peterborough County-City Health Unit and the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit say that helping a young child develop proper speech and language skills is essential for present and future success. “It’s never good to play wait and see with your child’s speech skills because there is a lot at stake,” adds Leisa Baker, a Public Health Nurse with the Peterborough County-City Health Unit. “If identified early enough, speech and language problems can be overcome through parent and professional intervention.” Some parents may think their child is just

quieter than other children, or that his or her frustration over words will work itself out over time. In fact, this may be a warning sign of speech and language problems, Baker says. “Many problems are noticeable by 18 months of age, so discuss any concerns you have about your child’s speech with your health care provider during the 18-month well-baby visit,” she adds. A good way that parents can assess a child’s communication ability is by using the Ontario government’s speech and language milestones for children up to the age of five years. This resource, and many others, are available on the Kid Talk website (, an online portal supported by the health units and others. Or call your local Health Unit office for a screening and additional assistance.

Listen and speak on physician-assisted dying

St. James Anglican Church, Fenelon Falls will host a community conversation on physicianassisted dying this Saturday, May 21, at 10 am. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. Formal participants will include MP, Jamie Schmale, plus panelists Dr. Bert Lauwers, president and CEO of Ross Memorial Hospital, Jill Sadler from Hospice, and Ted Smith, chair of the ethics committee for the Canadian Mental Health Association. “Should Canadians have the right to physicianassisted dying? It’s an emotional issue,” says Rev. Susan Spicer, one of the meeting organizers. “Most of us have some fear of death, but perhaps our greater fear is of the pain and the manner of our death, or the death of a loved one.” Whether or not you can attend this event, you can also give your opinion on the issue through a constituency referendum that Schmale has launched. “I want their honest opinion,” says Schmale. “I

Do you have a news tip or idea?

We would like to hear from you


If you have ever watched a movie in which the audio track was out of synch with the visual images, you know that it is difficult to watch. In order for the brain to figure out what is going on, it has to rapidly combine different sensory information. So, when older adults have a hearing loss that makes what they hear appear out of sync with what they see, confusion sets in. This discrepancy between what a person hears and sees can adversely affect how he or she responds to rapid decision-making situations, such as driving. Experiencing problems processing multisensory information can also have an impact on conversations and balance. Addressing this problem with a hearing aid helps restore synchronicity. Basic hearing aids allow for some customization, but are limited in the amount of adjustments to fit unusual patterns of hearing loss. Advanced hearing aids offer several different levels of technology. For more information, please call us. Our goal is to help people of all ages hear better and improve their quality of life. We offer a wide variety of hearing aids in many colours, shapes, and sizes. P.S. When it comes to driving, improved reaction time spells the difference between a crash and avoidance.

said “a competent person who 1) clearly consents to the termination of life, and 2) has a grievous and irremediable medical condition (including an illness, disease or disability) that causes enduring suffering that is intolerable to the individual in the circumstances of her condition” has the right to request physician-assisted death.

Katherine Greig joined the Livewell team after moving to Bobcaygeon from Toronto in 2015. A lifelong interest in the science of health and wellness, combined with an active lifestyle kayaking, gardening and hiking, drew her to massage therapy as a career, and she has been in practice since completing studies at Elmcrest College of Applied Health Sciences in 2010. With experience in both spa and clinical settings, Katherine employs swedish, myofascial, deep tissue, cranial sacral, and sports massage techniques to address the muscle imbalances and tension in the body that lead to discomfort and pain. Whether seeking relief from stress and minor issues like headaches, or more intense rehabilitation from accidents and injuries, her treatments are tailored to meet the individual needs of her clients with a special nod to pressure and overall flow during a session. Emm Shaw is a Thai massage therapist who has been working at Livewell Centre since 2014. Emm graduated from a traditional Thai massage school in Thailand in 2012.

Emm is currently returning to school to complete her registered massage therapy to add to her resume.

THANK YOU To Chaplain Doug Harnkess, Rick Bailey, Paul McGregor and to one other unidentified gentleman who helped me when I fell in the parking lot of Poole Plaza on Tuesday morning, April 19th. I am recuperating well after a full replacement of my left hip in Ross Memorial Hospital. The 4th floor nursing staff are wonderful to me. We are fortunate to live in a small community where concern for others is paramount. My heartfelt thanks, Ted Pollock ( & Jean) ____________________ THANK YOU Ruth Sheppard extends a huge “thank you” to all her friends who planned and helped with her 90th Birthday party at the Seniors Centre on April 30th, 2016. It was a special party to be remembered for a lifetime. Ruth Sheppard

Paper pals cross generations

Hours: Mon, Tues, Thurs 8:30 am-4:30 pm; Wed 8:30 am- 7:00 pm; Fri 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

PaperPal will connect generations through letter writing, as seniors and students from Scott Young Public School, IE Weldon Secondary School, Jack Callahan Public School and Fenelon Falls Secondary School have become pen pals with Victoria Manor residents. As part of the first group in Canada to participate in this revived and revised pen-pal program, they will write several letters back and forth before meeting in person at a special event in May. “Many of our residents live with the effects of alzheimers/ dementia, and this program presents a significant cognitive, social and emotional exercise that will greatly help them,” said Victoria Manor’s life-enrichment assistant Angela Everson. The program also helps the young participants develop fine motor skills, and perhaps best of all, will help both groups develop enjoyable, enriching connections. For more information, see, or contact Angela Everson at aeverson@city.kawarthalakes., or 705-324-3558, ext. 1426.
