OVER THE BACK FENCE Mother’s Day is a particularly difficult day for me since losing my Mom to cancer 6 years ago. Anyone who has lost their Mother or mother figure can relate, I’m sure. But even though there is the pain of loss, I choose to remember the woman she was in life. My Mom made an impression on all who met her. She loved to laugh, showed her passion for the causes she believed in and never let anyone see her afraid. She had a quiet strength and never boasted about how far she’d come – from humble beginnings in Ottawa to becoming a caring and compassionate nurse and bringing up three children in what were for many years, difficult and stressful times. While my Dad was following his heart helping those affected by war in Biafra, Mom was left to handle the daily grind of us, the household, the bills and

her job. My brothers and I tried to help out where we could, but looking back on it now, most of it fell on her shoulders. Mom and Dad went through their rough patches in their marriage, even separating for several years. But in the end, they came together (I take credit for that, as the event that brought them back together was my wedding). Mom always said Dad was her soul mate and her one true love. After he passed away (too soon at age 62), she wasn’t interested in another relationship, but grew closer to her children. She missed him every day and, when she was in her final hours of life here on earth, told me she couldn’t wait to see him again. Mother’s Day is a time to honour the women who help us navigate through our lives – who have always been there for us in good times and in bad. Even though my Mom isn’t physically present, I feel her strength and spirit every day. She motivates me still. She calms me and protects me still. She is always by my side. I love you, Mom.

I totally agree that Bobcaygeon needs an off-leash dog park. So many people have dogs that want to socialize but can’t run free like they should. I’m sure there’s land for the dogs and volunteers who would help. I would love to set up and run a dog park and have rules people would have to abide by for their pets. What about where the old bowling alley was? What about a section of Settlers’ Village? What about an area by the river down off Mill St. or a section of land by Killabys on Highway 36? I really want to be part of this for our fur babies. Linda Mazepa Stockton Bobcaygeon (via facebook)

I couldn’t agree more with M. Houghton and her suggestion to establish a dog park here in our village. In fact, I believe that she is, “dog on right”. For several years I had an opportunity to visit one of Vancouver city’s dog parks with my son’s Siberian Husky, Kota. It was always a positive experience. Many of the dogs who went there, accompanied by their human companions, were regulars. Old doggie pals reunited and frolicked together in a safe welcoming environment while their humans chatted and watched the often amusing goings on. It was a place that had literally, “Gone to the dogs”. Dogs, old/young, big/ small, and of every breed, thrived in this environment. The park was always well maintained. The folks who brought their dogs to the park dutifully scooped up the poop and deposited it on the appropriate receptacles. Each of them took pride in their role to leave the park in better condition than they found it after each visit. Another community that celebrates all things doggie is Meaford, Ontario. If ever you have a chance, visit “Beautiful Joe Park” in the heart of the community.

It is a must see for any dog lover. For an introduction to this tribute park, I encourage you to google the park’s name and check out the many links to this incredible place. If you are a dog lover, you won’t be disappointed. Perhaps you might like to read the book, “Beautiful Joe”. It is quite a tale or perhaps, more aptly, “tail” in this case. Here in our village, we have many canine friends. Let’s do what we can to make this bit of doggy heaven a reality.

The Residents of Rosedale had their fourth annual Earth Day Clean up on Saturday April 22. At least 33 residents including kids and grandparents came from as far as Baddow, Kings View and Mason Lane to help out. It was fun to have the new parkette as our meeting place. Thirty-nine bags of garbage were picked up from Rosedale Streets and Highway 35 and delivered to the Fenelon landfill. Snacks and beverages were provided as a thank you to the volunteers. In addition, some kind (anonymous) person had 2 pizzas delivered to the parkette for all to enjoy. A hearty “thank you” goes out to all the volunteers. Barb Young Rosedale


We’ve received some complaints from readers about the garbage left alongside Highway 36 between Bobcaygeon and Buckhorn. I drive this route every day and I have to say, it is quite disheartening. One of our readers, Warren Johns of Bobcaygeon says we need to find a way to stop people from throwing their garbage in the ditches. I think it comes down to basic human decency. Please don’t throw your trash out of the car window, or drop off a bag of your garbage because you don’t want to take it to one of the transfer stations. It not only looks bad, but it’s not healthy for the environment. And, it can cost you – in the Municipality of Trent Lakes, there’s a $300 fine for littering! Thank you!

City Hall City Deficit = Tax Increase

City of Kawartha Lakes residents can blame a snowy winter for a mid-season tax increase. City council’s 2016 actual outlay was more than $1 million over what was in the budget. Officials say the major factor that created the deficit was the cost of winter control in 2016. The annual budget provides for about 40 ‘events’ or responses to winter conditions, such as snow clearing, sanding, salting and snow removal. On average across all depots, staff recorded 52 of those ‘events’ throughout the City in 2016, totalling approximately $1.3 million over budget. Council approved funding half of the deficit by increasing the 2017 tax levy. This means property owners will pay approximately $5 more per assessed value of $100,000. The other half of the deficit will be funded through the 2018 tax levy. “The current budget base must be right-sized to cover the cost of the existing service levels. We need to either increase tax support or lower service levels,” commented Mary-Anne Dempster, Director of Corporate Services. Over the past several years, staff have worked diligently to streamline processes to ensure the level of service requested from Council is delivered and meets the provincial minimum standards. Staff will continue to actively investigate alternatives to provide the services in a more cost-effective manner and will budget for 50 winter events in the future.

Council Moves Forward to Address Climate Change

By Pat Warren

City of Kawartha Lakes Council gave the nod to move forward with The Healthy Environment Plan and partner with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities to help curb greenhouse gas emissions. Consultants Land Use Research Associates (LURA) and the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) presented how climate change issues affect local governments. They informed Council that there has been a 20-fold increase in natural disasters

The benefits of doing the action plan include: • Improved energy efficiency • Reduction in air pollution /greenhouse gas emissions • Fostering local sustainable energy solutions for the community • Reducing utility costs • Reducing community vulnerability to energy price increases • Energy security and resilience • Building local energy efficiency and a local energy market sector • Retaining energy dollars within the community • Supporting local economic development. The plan will develop a GHG (greenhouse gas) emission inventory and forecast, set emission reduction targets, develop a COKL local action plan, implement the local action plan and monitor the progress and report back on the results Staff lead for the initiative, Denise Williams, Strategy and Performance Specialist, explained, “Working through the five milestone framework will help us update our Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP) in collaboration with the City of Kawartha Lakes Environmental Advisory Committee and other community stakeholders. The project will engage the entire community over multiple years.” The Federation of Canadian Municipalities will be funding most of the plan and there will be a call out for community partners later this spring.

Spring has Sprung


By Pat Warren

After receiving many complaints about the new minimum charge for leaf and yard waste introduced March 31, at the Council meeting on April 18, Mayor Andy Letham brought forward a resolution to discontinue the new charge of $5 for leaves and $7for mixed loads that are dropped off at landfill sites. He said that he was doing this because he “felt that the charge went too far.” He wants residents to have their material composted/recycled rather than having it end up in the landfills or ditches. The new charge was initially put into the City’s budget to help offset the increasing cost of adhering to Provincial regulations for composting of the material. Most councillors supported the resolution except for Councillor Junkin who is Chair of the Waste Management Task Force. He said that many people compost their own yard waste so they would be paying for others who don’t. He also felt that costs have increased and need to be offset somehow. Residents can now take up to 150kg of their yard waste which is about 30 bags, to landfills without a charge. Staff noted that a record number of residents visited landfills over the Easter weekend with the Lindsay Ops landfill recording 420 visits. Staff is looking at ways to get cars through the scales sooner and reducing the minimum fee should assist with the wait times. There are three curbside pick-ups of yard waste yearly, two in the fall and one in the spring for everyone who receives regular garbage pick-up. The public is reminded to use only paper bags for leaf and yard curbside collection. Officials are asking that residents not place leaves in clear bags. Clear bags do not decompose and cannot be mixed with yard compost. The next City-wide curbside collection is  June 2 (for Tuesday and Thursday regular collection days) and  June 16  (for Monday and Wednesday regular collection days). All residents who have curbside waste collection will receive curbside leaf and yard collection on these dates.

Almost 3 tonnes of batteries were collected during the March Curbside Waste battery collection event in the City of Kawartha Lakes. The success of this new program was clear as the numbers surpassed the first successful collection held in September. The City would like to extend sincere appreciation to all residents who participated in the March Curbside Waste battery collection event. The next battery pickup event will be during the week of November 5 to 9 when the clocks get changed back for daylight savings time. In the meantime, used batteries (1.5V, 6V and 9V) can be dropped off at any Municipal Service Centre or at the Household Hazardous waste depots at the Lindsay Ops and Fenelon Landfills.

NEW WORKS DEPOT for trent lakes

By Glenna Burns

Trent Lakes Municipality is one step closer to building a new Centralized Public Works Depot at their 110 County Road 49 site just outside Bobcaygeon. Chamberlain Architect Services of Burlington have completed the site preparations and design proposal for the new 28,120 square foot structure. The total proposed cost of just over $5 million includes almost $4.5 million for construction ‘hard costs’, a management fee of just under $225,000 and almost $450,000 for contingency. Two million dollars have been budgeted to start the project this year. The construction will be financed ‘in house’ by the municipality. The metal framed, highly insulated building will have transparent doors to bring in natural light, a water capture system on the roof to use rainwater for truck washing, LED lighting with occupancy sensors, radiant heat floors which help keep floors dry for safety and a small wing for administration and worker facilities. The existing structures on the site will remain intact and in use. Adrian Mauro, architect, said he was “looking to creating a building with good longevity and functionality.” In late 2015, a feasibility study was carried out to see what would be the most cost-effective way to update the Works Department facilities. In March 2016, Council was informed that the most cost-effective option would be to build a new depot and close the existing depots. The works depot at County Road 49 was chosen as the best site because the municipality already owned the 10-acre property so there would be no development fees, the sand domes and fuel pumps were located there (so no need to reconstruct those) and the existing

buildings could be used for cold storage. The next stage in this municipal construction project will be to develop tender documents and create full architectural drawings. Council wants the construction of the new 16-bay depot completed by next year.


On April 24, the provincial government rolled out their plans for a new Basic Income Pilot project. It’s a three-year study that will test the impact a basic income would have on those living on low incomes, while providing security for them and their families. Lindsay was chosen as one of three locations for the pilot and will roll out in the fall. The locations were selected so that the pilot can study outcomes in urban, rural and mixed urban/rural areas. The regions were also assessed for their economic need, demographics and access to local resources and services. City of Kawartha Lakes Mayor Andy Letham commented, “We are very pleased that the province is taking steps to find alternative ways to deliver services. At all levels of government, we are being challenged to rethink the ways we tackle the big issues, including poverty reduction. We see this test period as an opportunity to explore ways to increase quality of life and access to services for our residents who are currently living on low incomes.” How the program will work Closer to the fall, randomly selected individuals from Lindsay will receive information in the mail inviting them to apply to be part of the Ontario Basic Income Pilot (OBIP). Eligible individuals will then be selected to either receive the basic income or be part of a control group made up of people who will not receive payments. Individuals receiving the basic income will be compared to the selected control group. Participants will be: • Randomly selected • 18 to 64 years old

Roots & Ramblings By Linda Friend

Tulips, daffodils and pent-up gardening frenzy— the true signs of spring. Suddenly, after months of anticipation, there is SO MUCH to do. Here are a few essential steps to achieving a beautiful summer garden. A simple clean up works wonders! Trim last year’s perennials to the soil line, especially if they have begun to show life. Ornamental grasses may be tidied now but do not cut short until new growth has begun. Remove withered foliage of daylilies, hostas and other soft tissue plants. If your beds are heavily mulched, rake this covering off the beds. Now, amend the soil as needed by forking in such products as compost, manure, vermiculite, peat, or mushroom compost. Your choice of amendments will vary with the texture of your soil AGENT which may be sand, clay or perfect loam. If you purchase bags of these products, save your receipts. Return them to the store if you detect any rank or chemical odours upon opening. Your own homemade GENT compost is the safest, cheapest and most nourishing. Now rake the mulch back on to the garden, adding mulch if needed. When selecting wood chips or 30 Y shavings, remember thatears only “natural” colour does not contain dye. Pruning is another satisfying chore. And 0 fraught Y ears with hazards. If you prune early-blooming

shrubs, such as lilac, forsythia and some varieties of hydrangeas, you are removing the flowers. It is always safe to trim dead, crossed or scarred branches. An enthusiastic attack with pruner and saw should be preceded by careful research of your shrub varieties. If you wish to prepare new garden beds, try the “lasagna” method. Place several layers of non-glossy newspaper or cardboard on the sod. Top with a layer of growing medium, generally a mixture of soil and compost. Repeat newspaper, soil layers. Plants can be immediately located in this “instant” garden. Your Bobcaygeon Horticultural Society website has links to many garden topics as well as a calendar of upcoming events: Saturday, May 27 - plant sale; Thursday, June 15 - special speaker Dan Cooper on “Gardening from a Hammock”; and Saturday, July 8 Garden Tour, Tea and Market. Finally, expect a warm welcome as a visitor to one of our regular meetings, third Thursday of the month at Knox Street Church.

BAD NEWS/GOOD NEWS We are pleased to welcome a new regular contributor to The Kawartha Promoter! Pamela VanMeer, a respected journalist and president of Kawartha411 will provide her take on international and national news. She’ll offer up two sides to an issue -- it’s called Bad News/Good News for a reason.

Prescribed to Death As Canada’s Opioid epidemic spirals out of control, the cure is sitting right in front of us. Canada has the world’s second-highest per capita consumption of prescription opioids, according to the Federal Minister of Health. In some parts of the country, drug overdoses are killing more people than motor vehicle accidents. Opioids are prescription drugs that are typically used to treat severe pain. They are highly addictive. Two people die every day in Ontario from opioidrelated causes and the epidemic shows no signs of letting up. It’s ruining families and entire communities yet health professionals can’t seem to stop it. In British Columbia alone, 922 people died of an overdose in 2016; more than 1,400 across the county. A W5 investigation recently revealed there are new, specialized paramedics who only handle overdoses. Officials have deployed an army-style mobile medical hospital to Vancouver’s downtown. And another clinic has opened that offers prescription heroin, paid for by the government. In Ontario we give out an opioid overdose antidote for free to users and/or their caregivers. Free needles are available for injections and some communities have supervised injection sites where volunteers keep an eye on people who are

addicted while they use. It’s part of the “harm reduction model” that health care providers talk about during almost every interview they give on the subject. But it doesn’t seem to be working and the problem has spiralled out of control. Yet a Peterborough PhD student has developed a treatment for mental health and addictions including opioid addiction that’s got the attention of some Ontario judges and correctional workers. Peggy Shaughnessy says her Redpath program works because it treats the underlying cause of addictions. Addiction isn’t the problem, it’s why are people addicted? Harm Reduction looks at the behaviour, Redpath looks at the root cause. Probation officers and judges in Sarnia have been using Redpath for years and have written letters singing its praises. In one year, 15 local residents with problems ranging from addiction to domestic violence took the program. Fourteen became addiction free, three found employment and one regained custody of a child. That’s what I call “harm reduction.” The good news is there is an effective treatment for opioid addiction, it’s called Redpath and it works. For more information go to

It’s Easy Being Green Putting Down Some Roots

By Julia Taylor

I’m the first person to say that it will be easy- get some trees, put up some posters, and viola, an Earth Day Tree Planting Event is born! I’m now ready to admit that easy is not the best way to describe organizing a public event. Where will we get the money for the trees? Where will we plant the trees? What kind of trees will we plant? What size of trees? The list goes on and on. Ten meetings later with only half of those decisions made, the other half being debated, and 20 more things added to that list, I start to realize that A LOT of time and effort goes into these events. And 95 percent of that is volunteered time. I got involved with the City’s Environmental Advisory Committee because I wanted to see events like this in the community I live in. Thanks to the support of the committee, community organizations, the City staff, and vendors who donate their services, we have made this event happen for the past 2 years. I write this not because I want a thank you, instead to give a SUPER EXTRA HUGE BIG THANK YOU! To the community for digging holes and shoveling

Choristers’ Corner

Submitted by April Scott

This is the last episode before our concert on May 13 at 7pm in Trinity United Church on William Street in Bobcaygeon. The sectional practices are done and it is back to the full choir. We are fortunate to have Deliah Williams joining us as a guest artist. Advertising has been dealt with - look out for the yellow posters around the village that will give you some idea of the music you might be familiar with. So...all we need is an audience. Tickets are $15 each and are available from any Chorister, by calling 705-738-2396 or at the door. Thinking ahead - if you think you might enjoy singing and joining the choir (we are always looking for new voices), please contact our director Bob Plummer at 705-731-1060 or April Scott at 705-738-2396. You could also drop in any Tuesday evening around 7pm at the Retirement Suites on West Street.

May 5 to May 18 Melodie McCullough

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19): Gratitude, n. Being thankful for and ready to return kindness. That’s the dictionary definition, Aquarius. Do you practice gratitude? It might be a habit that needs to be encouraged each day, but once we discover its power, it is, indeed, awesome. Try it!   Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20): With all the beautiful flowers blossoming, Pisces, it’s time for you to blossom also! Take a small step forward towards something new, or something you’ve always wanted to do but never had the courage. Be not afraid.    Aries (March 21 to April 20): Do you find yourself constantly on the move, Aries, rushing hither and thither, and for what? At the end of the day, are you satisfied that you have accomplished something, or are you just plain exhausted? Sometimes it’s important to sit quietly and let the happiness you seek “alight upon you”.   Taurus (April 21 to May 21): The fifth full moon of the year (May 10) is the Flower Moon, according to Canadian indigenous belief. All the plants display their Spirit sides for all of the world to see. This life-giving energy is one of the most powerful healing medicines on Mother Earth, it is said. During this moon you are encouraged to explore our Spiritual essences, Taurus.   Gemini (May 22 to June 22): Karaoke? Bungee-jumping? These may not be your cup of tea, Gemini, but we suggest you liven up your life a little with some new experiences. It could be as simple as reading a new genre of book. Life is always waiting for you!    Cancer (June 23 to July 23): Money woes are prevalent at this time. Do not let them devour you or your spirit! Your health


could be affected by the stress. Do not let this happen. Seek professional financial advice if necessary.   Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23): “On matters of style, swim with the current, on matters of principle, stand like a rock.”:  Thomas Jefferson. It never hurts to be in vogue when it comes to the latest fashions, dear Leo, but it’s a different kettle of fish when it comes to our principles. But we know YOUR integrity is solid as a boulder!    Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23): Summer is calling, Virgo! The time is right, now, to make plans. A seaside resort? A cross-country tour? Or a simple visit with friends and family close to home. Make it happen.   Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23): Your employment goals may seem far-off and unattainable, but you must persevere. Things are not as gloomy as they appear at the moment. We see a great future for you ahead, Libra!   Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22): Scorpions are emotionally reserved, yet intense and sensitive, often displaying opposite traits at the same time. So you need to figure out how to balance these opposite characteristics, Scorpio. Awareness that they exist and may cause problems is a first step.   Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21): You are a strong and brave soul, dear Sag -- and you need to keep telling yourself that, because sometimes we forget just how special we are! Other people know you are, too, but they don’t always spell it out.   Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan 20): Lots of new opportunities are cropping up  for you now, Capricorn. Your health may be an issue, but if you take things slowly and prioritize it will work out.

Teddy Bears FOR KIDS

When the City of Kawartha Lakes OPP officers showed up at the Retirement Suites of Kawartha Lakes last week, nobody was surprised. The Crafters Club was ready to make their donation of 90 teddy bears to the OPP and Victim Services of Kawartha Lakes-Haliburton. Over four weeks, participants in the Crafters Club created the bears that will be distributed to children who have been affected by crime or tragic events. The Club at times had up to 20 residents working on the project.  The residents said that they had fun while working on the project and were happy to see them being put to use.   The OPP and Kawartha Lakes-Haliburton Victim Services would like to thank the Crafters Club for their thoughtful gift.   


The annual Hike for Hospice will be held on Sunday, May 7. Supporters raise pledges that will be directed towards Hospice programs, including grief and bereavement support services. These services do not receive government funding but are offered by Community Care at no charge to local residents. Hikers will be able to choose from a 1-km or 5-km route. The Hike begins and ends at Celebrations Centre,

Throughout the Kawarthas, ATV trails are ready for riders. But with that good news, comes a particularly eye-opening statistic from the OPP. In 2016, it was a particularly tragic year for off-road vehicle (ORV) enthusiasts, with 22 deaths. That marks a 10-year high. More than half of the incidents were alcohol/drug related and nine of the victims were riding without a helmet. Although no “driver’s licence” is required for ATVs, knowing all you can about the safe operation of your vehicle can lead to more enjoyable riding. The Canada Safety Council offers an ATV Rider’s course. A separate ATV Rider’s Course is also available for children under the age of 14 whose parents specifically permit them to ride ATV. You can find out more about the course at www.

The Hike for Hospice will feature registration and opening ceremonies at Celebrations, as well as healthy snacks, entertainment, participant incentive prizes and awards for the top individual and team fundraisers. You can find out more about the event at www. Hair Stylist Helps Out Amber Purdy from Ranaje Hair Design in Bobcaygeon will not only be taking part in the Hike in memory of Jordon Coumbs with his mother Nancy Coumbs, but she’s going to go the extra mile. On Saturday, May 6 from 9:30 until 4pm, Amber will be doing a hair-a-thon at the salon. All money raised will go to Hike For Hospice. All haircuts on this day will be a donation amount of your choice. So why not help a good cause and do something nice for yourself at the same time?

Many people in the Kawarthas live on or near The Land Between. This unique landscape is where the Canadian Shield and the St. Lawrence Lowlands collide. The Land Between extends from Georgian Bay in the west to the Frontenac Arch in the east. It provides clean water to all cities downstream, delivers ecosystem services during climate change and it is the last wildlife refuge in Southern Ontario. Recently, a three-part documentary and book were released highlighting this significant part of Canada. This fall, in October and November, The Land Between national non-profit organization will sponsor the Knowledge Circles Project to engage citizens in how to protect this important ecosystem for the future. The Knowledge Circles Project is based on the First Nation ‘talking circle’ concept. It is a traditional form of governance. In the Talking Circle, the Eagle feather is passed from one participant to another as a testament of truth, love and faith. The Ontario Ministry of Culture and Immigration is supporting the Knowledge Circles Project under its Partnership Grant Program. The Knowledge Circles Project will provide people who are stakeholders in the Land Between with opportunities to help create public policy.

Politicians at all levels are not invited to participate. So if you farm, own a wood lot or hunt camp, garden, fish or hunt, kayak or hike, keep bees, live seasonally or year round on the Land Between, this is your chance to be heard Residents in the Kawarthas will have the opportunity to participate on Saturday, October 14 from 10am to 4pm at the Buckhorn Community Centre. More information on this Project will be available online at

The Mother’s Day celebration has its roots firmly planted in history. The “modern holiday” was first celebrated in 1908, when an American woman named Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother. Her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis had been a peace activist during the American Civil War and created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna wanted to honour her mother by continuing the work she started and began a campaign in 1905 to make Mother’s Day a recognized holiday in the US.

But even further back in time, celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. In those days, they held festivals in honour of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. According to, the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.” Once a major tradition in the United Kingdom and parts of Europe, this celebration fell on the fourth Sunday in Lent. It was originally seen as a time when the faithful would return to their “mother church”—the main church in the vicinity of their home—for a special service.


Treat Mom to a Special Breakfast

Being a Mom is a big responsibility. Not only for just the basic needs of our early lives, but there are so many other tasks that both stay-at-home and working mothers do for their families. If being a mom were a paid position, how much would she make? Well, according to, in 2016 here’s how it breaks down for her 92 hours of work: Base salary – 40 hours/week $48,509 Overtime – 52 hours/week $94,593 Total: $143,102 So when you’re thinking about buying your Mom a card for Mother’s Day, don’t gripe about the $3.99 it will cost you!

• More phone calls are made on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year. These holiday chats with Mom often cause phone traffic to spike by as much as 37 percent. In the United States alone, around 122 million phone calls are made to moms on Mother’s Day. • Approximately $14 billion dollars is spent on Mother’s Day. In 2016, the National Retail Federation (NRF) estimated that U.S. consumers would spend $21.4 billion celebrating Mother’s Day. • About 133 million Mother’s Day cards are exchanged annually in the United States, according to the Greeting Card Association. • Common gifts for Mom include: cards, flowers, meals in restaurants, jewelry, gift cards, clothing, trips to a spa, books, CDs, housewares and even gardening tools. • In what was formerly Yugoslavia, children would tie up their mother on Mother’s Day. The only way she could get free would be to pay her children with treats.

The Odds & Ends Knitters show off some of the items knitted to keep babies warm around the world.


Submitted by Angela Beaven

We are a group of women from Christ Church Anglican, Bobcaygeon who meet weekly to knit for Outreach projects. There are also several ladies who knit at home. During this past year we have made over 200 baby pneumonia vests, toques and blankets. (The vests keep the babies warm at night to prevent pneumonia.) These items will be shipped in May 2017 to destinations in Canada and overseas by Dr. Simone of Canadian Food for Children Fund. We would appreciate your donation of any odds and ends of wool so that we can continue with this worthwhile project.  And we welcome new knitters. Donations can be dropped off at Christ Church, 43 Sherwood St. in Bobcaygeon Tuesday to Thursday mornings or by calling 705-887-3556.

On April 27, the provincial government brought down their 2017 budget. The most significant changes will affect young people. For example, 4 million children and young adults, up to the age of 24, will now be covered for prescription drugs. The program is available to young people regardless of family income or private healthcare plan. This move will cost about $465 million per year. As well, graduates with OSAP loans won’t have to begin paying them until they earn $35,000 per year. The province also pledged $190 million over 3 years for Career Kick-Start, where high school and postsecondary students can access co-op programs and other training to better prepare them for full-time work. For seniors, there will be a new Ontario Seniors’ Public Transit Tax credit, making them eligible to receive a refundable benefit of 15 percent. That will mean an average annual benefit of $130. Smokers will be hit again with further tobacco tax hikes of up to $10 per carton over the next 3 years. The first hike of $2 was effective April 28. But it seems that the Wynne government’s budget has opposition MPPs at a loss. Local MPP, Laurie Scott said, “There is nothing new in the Budget for redevelopment of long-term care beds. Meanwhile, 4,500 people are in urgent need of long-term care beds in HaliburtonKawartha Lakes-Brock and Peterborough.” As well, says Scott, “The Wynne government also cut the agriculture budget by $47 million, which shows how little they care about rural Ontarians.”

Buyers beware, sellers take care to ensure used items at garage and yard sales don’t pose a hazard to children. Whether you’re organizing a yard sale or attending one to hunt for bargains, the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit wants to make sure you’re doing it safely. Used and out-of-date items – especially for children – can be dangerous, especially if they no longer meet current safety standards. In these situations, the Health Unit advises that unsafe items should never be sold at garage sales, but instead dismantled, destroyed or thrown out. In particular, children’s products such as car seats, cribs, playpens, strollers, walkers, baby gates/ barriers, sports equipment, bike helmets and toys should thoroughly be checked for potential hazards. If there are any doubts about the safety or durability of these items, it is best to throw them out. For children’s items like car seats, cribs and helmets, the Health Unit recommends buying ‘new,’ since these products will still be under warranty and meet current safety standards. There is added reason to dispose of unsafe items before trying to sell them at a garage/yard sale. Anyone caught selling an item that fails to meet safety standards could be held responsible if someone is injured by it.

Downpayment Assistance Program

If you’re renting and have been dreaming of owning your own home but don’t have a down payment in the bank, there may be help. The City of Kawartha Lakes is participating in the Homeownership Component of the Investment in Affordable Housing for Ontario – 2014 Extension which was developed to assist low to moderate income rental households to purchase affordable homes. “The Homeownership program provides up to 10% in down payment assistance to eligible applicants,” says Hope Lee, Manager of Housing. “We currently have funding in the amount of $112,010 to assist people in the City of Kawartha Lakes and the County of Haliburton move into homeownership.” Applicants must be renting, be at least 18 years old, have a gross household income at or below $76,100 and be eligible for financing from a financial institution. The selling price of the home must be at or below $350,430. Applicants must also be a first-time homebuyer and the home must be located in the City of Kawartha Lakes or the County of Haliburton. Applications can be obtained online at www. or from the City of Kawartha Lakes Housing Help Division. For more information please contact Arlene Smit, Affordable Housing Program Coordinator at 705-878-9367 Extension 3109.


Over the past year, the City of Kawartha Lakes has been looking at ways to enhance access to community services. With the support of the Economic Development division, a strategy has been developed by the Age-friendly Steering Committee. Two of the age-friendly goals involve supporting local businesses to look at their business through an age-friendly lens. The Age-friendly Business Recognition Program provides resources, tools and assistance to help business owners identify, promote and improve their age-friendly features. Some examples of age-friendly features are wide and clutter-free aisles, large print signs, accessible washrooms, respectful staff and senior discounts. Through engagement with local business people and older adults in our community, the Age-friendly Business Engagement committee has produced a set of tools including a guide, checklist of accommodations and training. These tools are available to any business in the region and can be found at The make-up of our community is undergoing a fundamental shift as members of the Baby Boomer generation mature. According to Statistics Canada, in 2011, the percentage of the population aged 65 and over in the City of Kawartha Lakes, was 21.9 percent, compared with 14.8 percent nationally.

Spring is a time of renewal and revitalization, but it’s hard to appreciate all the invigorating aspects of spring when your home still bears months of winter dust and dirt. Tackle your living space room-by-room for a spring clean that will leave you and your home refreshed and ready for a new season. Kitchen Although the kitchen is likely the room that gets the most cleaning attention, there are probably still areas for spring improvements. Cabinets and countertops make the biggest impression in your kitchen, so give them a thorough wipe-down, adding polish to the woodwork and natural stone, and repair any chips or damaged spots. Make your appliances look new again by wiping down and scrubbing hard-to-reach and heavy-use areas like the top of the refrigerator and the stovetop. They may not be immediately visible, but don’t overlook the inside of your cupboards. Discard expired food, damaged items and wayward pieces, such as lids with no matching container and vice versa. Finish off the kitchen with sweeping and mopping for squeaky clean floors. Living Areas Throughout the house, your biggest chore may be removing clutter. Finding storage solutions or new

homes for accumulated items can make rooms seem instantly brighter and more welcoming. Dusting the blinds, lighting fixtures and fans can add a fresh touch, and clean baseboards make for a top-to-bottom clean. Vacuum cushions as well as under and behind all furniture, and if necessary, consider shampooing the carpets. Dust all the nooks and crannies, including any decorative items and accessories. Bedrooms The closet is a good starting point in the bedroom. Sort your clothes and discard any you haven’t worn in the past year; these can be donated. Also check for any items that need repair and set them aside to mend when you take a cleaning break. This is also a good time to put away winter clothing and bring out your spring and summer attire. Additionally, you may find it helpful to add organization and storage containers to help control items like shoes, handbags and other accessories. As temperatures rise, your bedding needs will change, as well. Wash and put away blankets you won’t need until the weather turns cool again. Flip and rotate your mattress for longer wear before you add fresh, lightweight sheets. While the mattress is raised, you can take advantage of access under the bed to run the vacuum. A fresh new pillow will add the final refreshing touch to your springready bed. Before you leave the bedroom, don’t forget to pull dressers and other furniture away from the walls to vacuum, dust each item thoroughly and wipe down baseboards and blinds or shutters. Once all your cleaning is complete, take a few extra steps to make your home feel extra fresh and clean. On a warm day, throw open the windows to let the fresh breeze chase away stale winter air and add lightly scented candles throughout the house for a home that smells as inviting as it looks.

This is the time of year many people dread … the awakening of the insect population. Ron Harrison, Ph.D., Orkin entomologist, shares these tips for effective home treatments. Flies Science backs up public perception of flies being dirty: they carry twice as many pathogens as a cockroach, breed rapidly and contaminate the surfaces and food they land on. Home remedies like suspending a clear bag of water outside don’t usually deter them. To cut down on flies, Harrison recommends: • Regularly wiping countertops and cleaning food and drink spills. • Emptying trash cans frequently. • Installing screens on doors and windows. • Turning on fans. Mosquitoes Mosquitoes are the uninvited guests of summer barbecues. Harrison said the insects are attracted to perspiration, some perfumes and some colognes, but are repelled by other scents, such as citronella. For citronella to be effective, Harrison said the amount of scent you would need would be almost overwhelming. To effectively deter these biting bugs from your yard: • Remove standing water from gutters, buckets and other areas • Change water in bird baths, fountains and potted plants frequently.

• Thin out vegetation where adult mosquitoes may live and feed. Wasps Most people have developed a well-earned fear of wasps, which can sting repeatedly and are poisonous to some. Harrison said that while wasps may not like the scent of hanging rosemary bunches, unless you kill the queen, she’ll continue to reproduce and you won’t achieve much of an impact. A better way to cut down on wasp encounters is to get rid of the proteins and sweets they like to feed on, so Harrison advises to: • Keep your yard clean of ripe or rotting fruit. • Clean up after barbecues to remove leftover meat • Dispose of sugary drinks before they can attract wasps. • Install a misting system.

Zoë McIntosh, Sophie Kaloudas, and Sofia EntzinTelford from Ms. Higgins Grade 4/5 class at Langton started the Green Team to raise awareness about Earth Day and the Environment. When they learned that the whole school would board buses and head to Peterborough to watch a movie about endangered species, they wanted to have a second option that included stewardship activities and that didn’t require students to travel to participate. While asking around for support, lots of students didn’t even know what Earth Day was - they knew they had to do something so that students learn that we need to respect the Earth and take care of it. They gathered support from Ms. Higgins and the Principal to plan Option 2 for Earth Day festivities including germinating seeds, planting seeds, a litterless lunch picnic and a community clean up. They also included a craft where students traced their hands and wrote down what they would do for the environment. Afterward, the hand cut-outs were used to create a tree (pictured behind the Green Team). About 70 students participated in the event on Friday, April 21. Now the team is working on a garden at the school, and have ideas to get the school composting and recycling more. They also hope to get involved with the local Horticulture Society. But their advocacy doesn’t stop on the school property. The team is planning on making posters to put up around town to raise awareness that Tim Horton’s Coffee cups are recyclable in Kawartha Lakes (remove lid, and toss both into container/plastic recycling). The Green Team meets weekly and students are notified of the meeting over the daily announcements. Anyone from Grade 2 and up can join them, and about 10 to 15 students are already on the team. They are also looking for families to help take care of the garden for a week at a time over the summer holidays.

There are some topics that are difficult to talk about. But, with Hospice Week May 7 to 13, those who provide this special type of care want us to at least start the conversation. It’s never easy to talk about death and dying, but sometimes the reality of the situation makes it necessary to reach out. Hospice Services, either through Hospice Peterborough or the Community Care Health & Care Network in the City of Kawartha Lakes offer professional staff and trained volunteers to give you support for the mind, body and spirit by providing a full range of care, beginning at the point of diagnosis, through to grief after a loss. They can help you connect with a number of services that can give you comfort along that path -wellness programs, support groups and the chance to connect with others going through the same situation. They can also provide help in one-on-one settings


The inner ear contains delicate “hair cells” that are responsible for converting sound-induced vibrations into electrical impulses that are recognizable to the brain. These hair cells resemble blades of grass on a lawn. When subjected to loud noise, however, these hair cells look as though they had been beaten down by hard rain. This is physical evidence of a “temporary threshold shift,” which is characterized by hearing loss. Afterwards, the hair cells mostly return to their normal posture, although some of the hair cells die off. Each time the ears experience a dose of loud noise, they lose a bit more of their hearing ability. In time, noise-induced hearing loss may make it necessary to wear a hearing aid. Millions of people of all ages report having some degree of hearing loss. Hearing loss has many causes, symptoms, and effects when untreated over time. Many people could reconnect themselves to the sounds they love if they chose to use hearing aids. 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. A “permanent threshold shift” results in permanent hearing loss.

More people are turning to online streaming to watch their favourite television series or movies. Some platforms, like Netflix also produce original content. A new series gaining popularity with younger viewers is “13 Reasons Why”. The show examines events in the life of a teenage girl that eventually lead to her suicide. While programs like this encourage discussion about the effect of bullying and youth suicide, suicide should never be normalized. There are healthy ways to manage our emotions and behaviours in response to these emotions. Through media, suicide can be portrayed as glamorous or heroic. It is not. While the conversation about suicide is important, it is just as important to have it safely. The most important thing to do is to ask for help. If you are experiencing bullying, report it. If

Healthy all her life, Jan Sanderson never thought a case of the flu could lead to life-threatening complications. But when the flu became pneumonia, then sepsis, she was rushed to the Ross Memorial and spent several days in intensive care. Jan is grateful that critical care was available close by, and thanks the teams in the Emergency Department, the Intensive Care and Medical Units, and support staff that helped her to recover her health and strength. Upon hearing of the Hospital’s need for new vital signs machines, Jan was happy to partner with the RMH Foundation in its spring fundraising appeal by sharing her experience through letters that will be delivered throughout the City of Kawartha Lakes. “Through this appeal, the Foundation hopes to raise $87,300 to help the Hospital purchase 12 vital signs machines to take the blood pressure, pulse and oxygen levels of patients receiving critical care,” said Tim Shauf, Chair of the RMH Foundation Board of Directors. “These monitors are used throughout the Hospital 24/7 to help patients like Jan. We’re grateful for her support and for sharing her own story to encourage others to play an active role in patient care in the Kawarthas.” Provincial funding doesn’t cover the cost of replacing medical equipment at the Ross. Residents of the City of Kawartha Lakes can expect to see the spring appeal letters in the mail over the next few weeks. Anyone with questions about this or any other RMH fundraising initiative may contact the Foundation office at 705-328-6146 or foundation@

As people age, chances of developing footrelated health complications increase. It is estimated that 75 per cent of Canadians will experience varying degrees of foot health problems at one time or another in their lives. Prevention is always the best medicine, which includes regular examination of feet by a professional. The Community Care Health & Care Networks offers several affordable foot care clinics in six different locations each month. The program has recently expanded to include four sessions per month at Remedy’s RX Pharmacy on Kent Street in Lindsay. The full Community Care foot care clinic schedule is: Bobcaygeon - 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Friday of each month at the Bobcaygeon Senior Citizens Centre (100 Head St.). Fenelon Falls - 3rd and 4th Friday, 4th Monday, at 70 Murray St. Kirkfield - 1st, 3rd and 4th Thursday at 1027 Portage Rd. Lindsay - Queen’s Square Pharmacy (86 Russell St. W.), 1st Wednesday and 3rd Monday; Remedy’s RX (108 Kent St. W.) 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Tuesday. Little Britain - 2nd & 3rd Monday, at Little Britain Community Baptist Church (489 Eldon Rd.). All clinics operate from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost is $25 per visit. Foot care is provided by a Registered Practical Nurse who has taken specialized training in foot care. The program focuses on prevention, early

intervention and education to help keep clients mobile and decrease the risk of developing foot problems and conditions that can lead to serious health complications. The nurse assesses feet for circulation, sensation, swelling and potential risk of ulcer development and falls. Treatments include nail trimming and filing, care of corns, calluses, warts, ingrown toenails, fungal and thick nails, and skin care. Appointments must be booked in advance, call the Community Care Community Health Centre at 705-879-4100 (push 1).

lyme disease

According to Health Canada, Lyme disease is on the rise in our country. With the onset of spring, blacklegged ticks are often found in forests as well as overgrown areas between woods and open spaces. Because tick populations are spreading, it is possible to be bitten outside of these locations. Early treatment of Lyme disease is critical, but it’s difficult to diagnose because symptoms vary from person to person. Officials say there are more than 100 known symptoms. The rash (pictured above) is one of the most recognizable symptoms. Flu-like symptoms such as fever, headache, nausea, fatigue and muscle aches are also indications of the disease.

Survivorman Celebrates Summer Solstice

Summer solstice arrival for hundreds of years and numerous cultures has always been a time for celebration. With the sun reaching its greatest height, for many of us, it is an opportunity to get outside, into fresh air and warm sunshine. If the advent of summer could not be enough, June just got better with the arrival of Les Stroud, Survivorman, to Gamiing Nature Centre on June 17 to 18. Mieke Schipper, Gamiing Volunteer Executive Director, is humbled by Mr. Stroud’s profound relationship with Mother Nature. “His connecting with the land and native community and total commitment to the conservation and preservation of the land is attractive. With Survivorman joining us, we are organizing a weekend program to be an event to be remembered.” Survivorman is one of the highest rated shows in the history of OLN Canada, the Science Channel US and Discovery Channel US and remains the highest rated repeat show on the Discovery channel. Survivorman is licensed for broadcast worldwide, has been nominated for 21 Canadian Screen Awards (formerly the Geminis) and has also won for Best Writer and Best Photography. Les Stroud’s passion for the Earth is inspiring. Not many talented artists will put this front and center. With every song, every film and every story Les guides the listener through a celebration, a cautioning and a call to action to protect our Mother Earth. His guitar lays down the foundation for a powerful voice that assures you he means what he says. Stroud is known as the ‘Hendrix of Harmonica’, with world-class skills. He’s played with international artists including Journey, Alice Cooper and Slash. All of this, combined with a powerful film presentation, make his performances a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed. For more information on Celebrating Summer Solstice at GAMIING with Les Stroud, Survivorman, and to purchase tickets, please visit www.gamiing. org. All proceeds from this event will go towards outdoor education for children.

With the warmer weather here, the Peterborough Police Service reminds residents of the following crime prevention tips: When at Home: • It’s a good idea to keep your doors and windows locked • When in the backyard lock your front door and vice versa • Do not keep your garage door open with the contents

easily accessible. If you are working in the backyard keep your garage door shut • Consider installing an alarm system In Your Yard: The following outdoor belongings are often targeted by thieves: • Ladders: If you keep ladders out, be sure to chain or padlock them. A ladder can be used to gain entry to second story windows. If at all possible, store the ladders in a shed or garage • Tools: Put tools away after a day of yard work. Lock them in a shed or in an enclosed garage area. Screwdrivers, hammers and pry bars can be used to break into your home, garage, or vehicle • Tables and chairs: Use a chain or a cable to lock your patio furniture • Bicycles and other ride-on toys: Always put them in a garage or shed. If you do not have either, lock them to something that can’t be moved • Trim trees and bushes that could conceal burglars, especially around windows and doors • Keep your yard maintained to give the house a livedin appearance. Cut grass, rake leaves, remove dead branches and debris • Install motion-sensitive outside lights to brighten dark areas around doors or windows • Ensure your fence and gate are in good repair – check for holes and damage that may need repair. Keep your gate locked at all times and ensure the lock works properly. A lock or latch that self closes and can be padlocked when you are away is recommended • Install privacy slats in chain link fences In Your Community • Get to know your neighbours – residents should become familiar with the routine in their neighbourhoods • Leave keys and emergency phone numbers with a trusted neighbour • Keep up appearances – a well-tended neighbourhood is less attractive to criminals and vandals • Get involved in crime prevention program
