A post from last year at this time popped up on my Facebook page today, which has given me the inspiration to write this editorial. One year ago, my husband John was in the hospital, so I was dividing my time between here at The Kawartha Promoter and the long halls at PRHC. There was no time for cleaning the house, doing laundry or, heaven forbid, cleaning the leaves off my gigantic lawn. I came home from the hospital that night to find that two of our friends had come by and cleared my yard of the fallen leaves. I stood at the bottom of the steps and cried, not out of sadness but at the generosity of this couple to take time out of their day to help me. It is that “random act of kindness” and giving that I want to talk about here. Now that Remembrance Day is done, many retailers will focus their attention on the holidays – the latest in toys, gadgets, decorations and trimmings to make the season bright.

But what is really important, in my opinion, is the giving spirit the holidays should inspire. Whether it’s a donation to a toy drive to put a smile on a child’s face, some much needed grocery or personal items for a local food bank or shelter, giving our time to volunteer for a good cause, or helping a neighbour shovel their driveway, we need to think about giving what we can to others. It doesn’t have to be cash or material items – sometimes it’s the smallest of gestures that can make someone else’s day just a bit brighter. Please take some time to think how you can help and make it so.

I must compliment you on such a well written article under “Health & Wellness.” I am of the same opinion regarding cannabis. Further, I consider it to be a gateway drug to even more damaging and/or death dealing drugs. Our grandson experimented with cannabis that led to “mainstream” injectables including fentanyl which took his life. The opioid crisis is, now, of critical concern not only “on the street” but in the residences of older generations who are over-prescribed by professionals?!! Can’t people live in the REAL WORLD anymore? Man up and face reality -- not through a drug-induced haze where death is just around the corner. I agree that operating machinery (planes, trains and automobiles, etc.) while impaired should be deserving of fines so heavy that it will be the ruination of that thoughtless person rather than the calamitous results to innocent people so often seen.

TRENT LAKES ELECTION I have to agree that the voter

turnout was very discouraging but I do not agree with your statement that the voting system was “plagued with issues”. I was able to check the voter list very early in the election process and vote in under a minute from the comfort of my home. The Municipal staff went overboard with e-mail communications, website updates and community information sessions. Luckily, they picked a more reliable supplier than the City of Kawartha Lakes. In fact the Clerk was able to send out voter cards in advance due to pending postal disruptions. The results were almost instantaneous.   I think we have to look beyond  issues that affected our neighbouring communities to understand why the turnout was as low as it was. Mike Boysen, Lakehurst

CORRECTION: My sincere apologies to the staff at the Municipality of Trent Lakes for insinuating their voting system was “plagued with issues.” I was referencing the problems incurred throughout the province with the Dominion Voting system. According to Kari Stevenson, Director of Corporate Services at the Municipality of Trent Lakes, they used Simply Voting and did not experience any issues. ~Editor

City Hall

By Kirk Winter

Re-elected Letham Offers Election Insights

In an exchange of e-mails I had with Mayor Letham after the October 22 election, the Mayor Elect shared his insights about the bruising and mean-spirited campaign of 2018, City priorities, and the process for picking a Deputy Mayor for the CKL. Q: How did you find the 2014/2018 campaigns similar/different? Letham: “Overall, I found the candidates in 2018 more respectful for the most part. Behind the scenes, not so much, but in public, yes. There also seemed to be much more b.s. this time from candidates who should have known better as they had been on Council before.” Q: Did you think you would win so comfortably? Letham: “I knew it would be fairly close, but also knew that many liked the direction we were going as a city.” Q: How will the election for Deputy Mayor work? Letham: “Council will appoint the Deputy Mayor by vote if necessary at the inaugural meeting on December 3.” (Writer’s insight: Talk around City Hall has both Pat Dunn from Lindsay and Doug Elmslie from Fenelon Falls interested in the position. Both Councillors are experienced and widely respected at City Hall. Observers are expecting a tight vote for the new position of Deputy Mayor.) Q: When will the budget be tabled? Letham: “Budget will be brought forward publicly at the second meeting in December, with capital approval in January and operating approval in February hopefully.” Q: What do you see as priorities moving forward? Letham: “Sticking to our financial plan as approved by council, building our communities through outreach and discussion, and continuing to work together respectfully.” Q: Should the municipality change the rules to bar individuals from acting as Third Party advertisers if they have already been banned from running as a candidate for office? Letham: “We should, yes, but I’m not sure it is our rule. The whole bar needs to be set higher for municipal elections. If you are barred from running, you should be barred from all participation. Fees should be higher as well to discourage those who don’t take it seriously.” Q: I was sorry to hear about the passing of Councillor Gord Miller. He was always such a class act. Letham: “Thank you. He was a class act and exactly the type of person we need on council.”

Notice of Public Information Meeting Bobcaygeon Library Branch Project

The Bobcaygeon Library Branch is moving forward on its plan to enhance service for patrons. There will be a Public Information Meeting held on Thursday November 29 at 7pm at the Bobcaygeon Public School. The purpose of the meeting is to inform the public of the changes that are coming and to engage in a discussion of the features the public would like to see in an updated library. Additional details will be available at the meeting. For those who can’t attend the meeting, a survey will be available online until December 20. Public Information Meeting November 29, 2018 Bobcaygeon Public School 30 Balaclava St, Bobcaygeon 7:00pm to 8:30pm For more information, contact: Jamie Anderson Library Director/CEO 705-324-9411 extension 1260

Council business starts anew with two meetings in December, and I will be watching closely to see how the new, much smaller Council handles the multiple important issues they face in the 2019 budgeting process. Many long-term Council watchers expect to see staff play a much larger role than they have before to assist Council in running the City. November 15, 2018 - The Kawartha Promoter

You won’t want to miss the College Community Choir’s Christmas concert on Saturday, November 24. The choir is busy rehearsing traditional seasonal pieces such as Angels We Have Heard on High and The First Noel as well as some less familiar such as Still, Still, Still. And the haunting and lovely Ose Shalom, a plea for peace sung in Hebrew. Last Spring’s guest artist, Kristen English, who grew up in Lindsay and who now makes music her life, was impressed by the choir and its energetic director, Melissa Stephens. “The choir sounded great under your direction,” she told Melissa. Kristen

was “especially impressed with the ensemble’s diction. I could understand every word they sang.” What a compliment! This year’s guests will be two sisters, Juliette and Grace Silveira, who won kudos when they participated in a recent production of Annie at the Academy Theatre. We hope to see you on November 24 at 2pm, for what promises to be a great concert at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Lindsay. Tickets are available from choir members or at the door of the church the day of the concert. Or email collegecommunitychoir@

really hard for the upcoming concert in December. Special guest Kathryn Terry will be there on the piano with some special Christmas renditions. Tickets are ready for selling, concert outfits have been decided and now all we have to do is practice, practice, practice (along with baking some shortbread cookies for you - our favourite audience!). The Choristers have a very varied selection of numbers to sing – I doubt if many people will have heard them before. Thanks to Bob Plummer for spending the time to find them for us. But don’t worry, there will be lots of audience carol singing and you will be accompanied by a Brass ensemble. Please mark your calendars for Friday, December 7 at 7pm for a fun filled evening. Recently our wonderful accompanist had a birthday. She normally plays the ‘Happy Birthday’ song but because it was Vivian’s birthday, we sang it unaccompanied. Not exactly concert ready – but it did the job! Until next time, try and keep warm and dry and we will talk to you then.

Here in the Kawarthas we are in the middle of hunting season, and as we all know it is not unusual to see a deer darting across the road all times of day. Did you know that every year in Canada there are over 45,000 collisions involving large animals. Here are some helpful tips on avoiding an encounter with wildlife while driving: • Pay attention to posted wildlife signs. These signs have been placed in areas where wildlife is commonly spotted • Slow down at night when visibility is diminished. Be especially cautious at dawn and dusk and during the fall and spring seasons • If you see an animal, be on the lookout for more nearby as they rarely travel alone • If an animal has crossed the road without incident, be ready should they turn around. It’s not uncommon for an animal to be spooked from passing vehicles and attempt to return from where they came • If an animal appears on the road ahead, do your best to slow down and stop if necessary. Turn on your hazards as an alert to other drivers • In general, avoid swerving as this can lead to loss of control and an even more serious collision with other vehicles on the road putting other drivers at risk as well • If a crash is inevitable, try for glancing blow to the rear of the animal, as animals are typically always in forward motion • Never leave your vehicle with the intent to help the animal safely cross the road If you do have the unfortunate experience of a collision with an animal, pull over safely, call 911 and then call your insurance broker. If you are uncertain if you are currently covered for damages resulting from an animal impact, call us here at Stewart Morrison Insurance; we’re here to help! SMI we’ll make you SMILE!

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) There is never “an excuse for abuse”, Aquarius. If you are experiencing some kind of verbal, emotional, sexual or physical abuse, please get help. There are community agencies out there. Don’t wait – do it now. Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) We don’t very often get to say“money is no object”. That would be nice, wouldn’t it? But, dear Pisces, we can always remember how good we DO have it. We can be grateful for a warm bed and nourishing food – as we should be. Aries (March 21 to April 20) Be the one who “lets go”, Aries. There are times when we feel attached to someone or something that is holding onto us with apron (or other) strings. But you have the power to cut these strings and free yourself – you don’t have to wait for the other person or thing to do it. YOU CAN. Taurus (April 21 to May 21) Do not procrastinate, Taurus! It only causes greater stress eventually. Start with a plan, and stick to it. You will feel so much better. Gemini (May 22 to June 22) “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”: Winston Churchill. It is important, Gemini, to know the difference, and act accordingly. Each action has its own vital role to play. Cancer (June 23 to July 23) “Take off your mask.” Those are not always easy words to hear, nor are they easy to follow through on, Cancer. There are many days when we hide behind a certain “mask” because it is comfortable and allows us to conceal our emotions. But it is sometimes better to let the real “us” out – and the let the world witness our true selves!

Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) Times are changing for you, dear Leo. Be not afraid! There are good days ahead. Right now, it may seem like you are stuck and spinning your wheels – but this will not last. Keep your chin up! Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) Perfection is not an achievable goal, Virgo. But excellence is – as long as it is YOUR excellence. That means YOUR best, not anyone else’s, past or present. Strive to do your best, and be pleased with what results. Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) Solutions to problems will not come forward when people blame others and defend their own egos, rather than focusing on the difficulties that need to be resolved. You may be faced with this situation shortly, Libra, so try to concentrate on the obstacles at hand. Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) It’s a rare day when everything goes smoothly, and everything we had planned falls directly into place. So, if you are having “one of those days” every so often, don’t worry! Everyone else is, too! Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) A while back you embarked on a difficult journey, not knowing how it would turn out – but here you are! You have more than survived! Now look ahead to an even rosier future. Good job, Sagittarius! Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Prioritize, dear Capricorn, and let the chips fall where they may. Let everything unfold naturally, and if something doesn’t get done on a particular day, try to remember that it probably wasn’t meant to happen. You know – there is a thing called ‘tomorrow’.

GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday. GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners - nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals - to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness. Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another. GivingTuesday was started in Canada by a group of organizations including GIV3,, and now includes over 6,000 partners. GivingTuesday was originally started in the US in 2012 by the UN Foundation, the NYC 92Y and several other community organizations GivingTuesday is a movement, not a donations processor. However you can search for a charity and donate through, directly at You can also link directly to GivingTuesday partner charities by clicking on their logo in the partner section. In this way all donations go directly to the charity of your choice. Giving is a lifelong commitment, and a giving day is a special celebration, a reminder to all of us to think of others and our communities as well as ourselves. The most successful GivingTuesday campaigns are planned and launched weeks before the actual day, and many last until the end of December. Of course, we also encourage giving back throughout the year, whether through donations, volunteering or in whatever other ways we can. GivingTuesday is more than a moment, it’s a movement.


A new online survey is asking young people in the City of Kawartha Lakes for their input on the type of activities that they want to see offered in their community. The confidential and anonymous survey is being launched by the Kawartha Lakes Youth Engagement

subcommittee and is designed to gather the interests and opinions of youth aged 14 to 21 years living in City of Kawartha Lakes. “We need to learn what is important to local youth, so we can offer activities and opportunities they will find interesting and engaging,” says Jennifer Robertson, a member of the Kawartha Lakes Youth Engagement sub-committee and a Public Health Nurse with the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit. The Kawartha Lakes Youth Engagement subcommittee is part of the Community Planning Table, which includes representatives from local agencies, services, programs, school boards and organizations that provide direct service to children and youth in the City of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County. The Community Planning Table’s vision is creating ‘a community of happy, healthy children, youth and families.’ The deadline to participate in the survey is Wednesday, December 5. The link to the survey is: l/2018cklyouthsurvey. The short survey consists of 10 questions that ask about the types of activities in which youth currently participate, the barriers or challenges that prevent them from participating, the types of new activities youth would like to see offered, and how they would like to learn more about future activities.


The Municipal Law Enforcement Division (MLE) of the City of Kawartha Lakes has launched a new tool that will allow residents and visitors to more conveniently pay parking tickets online.

Santa’s On His Way To Lindsay

Submitted by Jennifer Ellis

Christmas returns to the heart of the Kawartha Lakes on Sunday, November 18, when Lindsay’s 63rd annual Santa Claus parade kicks off at 2pm. This year’s theme is “A Magical Christmas”. The parade will showcase more than 40 registered floats and bands, including the Sudbury Blue Saints, new for this year, and most bands that participated last year. Don’t forget, Santa Claus himself will close out the festivities! Starting at the Recreation Complex on Adelaide Street South and travelling North on Adelaide to Kent Street, the parade will go East down Kent to Lindsay Street – right through the heart of downtown Lindsay. Kawartha Bakery will be walking the parade again this year handing out their rainbow bread.

Have you heard BOB lately? BOB listened to you!

Perhaps most important, the Lindsay Canada Post Depot will be accepting “Letters to Santa”. Make sure yours are ready to go! The parade is presented by Collins Barrow Kawarthas LLP and is made possible by the many organizations and individuals participating and supporting the event. Contributions to support the parade can still be made to at Canadian Tire Lindsay until the 18th or can be dropped off to the Lindsay Santa Claus Parade Committee at Collins Barrow, 237 Kent St. W., or at Scotia Bank Lindsay. Check out the Lindsay Santa Claus Parade website at or the Facebook page for additional details. Hope to see you there!


It may be common sense, but here are some tips when you’re taking the family out to watch any of the Santa Claus parades in our region. • Arrive early for a good spot: You’d be surprised at the crowds who come out to watch a parade, so if you want a good spot, get there early. Bring blankets and chairs to keep you comfortable. • Plan for lost kids: In the excitement of watching Santa come through town, it’s a possibility that children can get separated from their parents. Talk to them about what to do if they get lost and have a “go to” spot picked out ahead of time. • Dress for the weather: It’s that time of year when the weather can change drastically while you wait for

the parade to start. Dressing in layers is a good idea, with hats, mitts, and scarves for everyone. • Parade etiquette: Safety officials remind everyone to stay off the road unless you’re involved with the parade, and if you have to cross the road, go to an intersection and wait for the officials to give you the green light. • Have fun: Holiday parades are meant for enjoyment and to make memories for your family. Laugh with the kids, clap for the bands and even sing along with the choirs!


Organizers of the Coboconk Santa Claus Parade and the Bobcaygeon Santa Claus Parade are looking for participants for this year’s events. Coboconk’s parade takes place Sunday, December

The Kawartha Lakes Health Coalition (KLHC) is organizing a general meeting for all residents of the City of Kawartha Lakes in response to the proposed merger of Ross Memorial Hospital with the Peterborough Regional Health Centre. The public meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 21 at 7pm at St. Andrews Church, 40 William Street North, Lindsay. The general meeting has been called in response to the secrecy around the future use of Ross Memorial Hospital. Two scheduled public meetings were called by hospital administration in July and August of 2018 to ‘help residents shape a vision for the future of the hospital care in the region’. Both meetings were cancelled and have not been rescheduled to date. The KLHC was formed with support from the Ontario Health Coalition in September to pressure for information and resist a possible hospital merger. On October 23, 8,000 Ontarians, including CKL residents gathered at Queen’s Park in Toronto at a Rally for Healthcare. The protest was staged to draw attention to cuts in healthcare and services. KLHC organized an outdoor ‘Rally for Ross’ to continue the protest against the slashing of services to CKL residents

at the Lindsay hospital. Citizens are looking for information from the hospital administration and Board of Directors on the future of their much loved and supported Ross Memorial. (Editor’s Note: We reached out to the Ross Memorial Hospital for an update on the integration process. Here is their response “The community engagement meetings have not been rescheduled. We have been in a communications pause with respect to the integration and we anticipate that we will have an update in the near weeks ahead. Board representatives and the CEOs of PRHC and RMH attended the LHIN’s October 24th Board meeting to provide an update on the current status of the proposal to integrate the two hospitals into a single corporation on two sites. The hospitals are waiting to hear back from the LHIN on their response to that update.”

Every year, 1.1 million Canadian children face food insecurity in communities across Canada.

part of the answer. Since 1997, various individuals in the federal government have been calling on Ottawa to consult with key stakeholders to develop a cost-shared program to fund a universal nutrition program for all Canadian children from kindergarten to Grade 12, using the school as the key delivery vehicle. As recently as 2017, Liberal Senator Art Eggleton, former Mayor of Toronto, called upon Prime Minister Trudeau to revisit this issue, and act upon it in a serious and concerted way. Martha O’Connor, former Director General of the Breakfast for Learning Program said, “Seventy percent of all Canadians now believe that child hunger is a more important issue than national unity or the deficit.” Last year, UNICEF ranked Canada 37 out of 41 industrialized nations in providing nutritious food to its children. The United States, with a well-established school lunch program, ranked ahead of Canada in that survey. Around the world, though, ground has been broken. In Brazil, food is a constitutional right, and every school day programs there feed 47 million students attending 190,000 state-funded institutions. In Italy, school meal programs are an integral part of the educational system, and have seemed immune to any budget cuts over the last decade. In Finland, one of the wealthiest nations in the world, free school lunches for all are available and research shows that they are the healthiest meal that students eat all day. Currently, Canadian school food programs serve a fraction of the students who need them. These initiatives are funded by a patchwork of provincial, municipal and charitable contributions. Only the federal government has the financial muscle to make a program like this a reality. Federal estimates in Canada put the cost of a healthy school food program for all at $1.8 billion a year. While that is not an inconsiderable amount, the British template for funding their school meals program is something to be considered. The United Kingdom partially funds a similar program with a national

“sugary drink” levy. That pop tax, if implemented in Canada, could potentially raise $1.7 billion a year to be spent on feeding all of Canada’s children in a school setting. Maybe it is time to give this program a harder look than we have up to this point. Our children deserve nothing less on an issue as basic as food.


The 2019 Explore family of tourist guides are in production. We want your event for the listings for Bobcaygeon & Area, Buckhorn & Area, Fenelon Falls & Area and Coboconk Norland & Area.

While miniature “in-the-canal” (ITC) and “completelyin-canal” (CIC) hearing instruments offer the cosmetic advantage of being virtually invisible, they may not be as powerful or full-featured as larger models. Handling these small devices and changing their batteries may also pose challenges for those with limited dexterity. However, “in-the-ear” (ITE) instruments, which are custom-made to fit in the lower portion of the outer ear, are comfortable to wear, easy to use, and do not draw undue attention to themselves due to their skin-matching cases. These tailor-fit instruments are especially adept at picking up high-frequency sounds, and all their components can be integrated into one case, which eliminates the need for wires and tubes. ITE instruments offer plenty of power and features. At LINDSAY EAR CLINIC, keeping pace with the ever-growing technology of today’s hearing aid industry is an integral part of our business. Our experienced staff will use specialized equipment to pinpoint and evaluate you hearing impairment. We then choose among a selection of hearing instruments to match the most appropriate aid with your individual needs. Our services don’t stop there, however. We also know how crucial follow-up care and support are to the successful wearing of any hearing instrument. P.S. “In-the-ear” (ITE) hearing instruments have relatively large batteries, which translates to longer life.

ROY ALEXANDER JACOBS (SCOOP) It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Roy Alexander Jacobs (Scoop), 89 of Bobcaygeon, Ontario on October 30, 2018. Roy was born on June 30, 1929 in Oakville, Ontario. He was the loving father to Janet (Paul) Christensen and Keith (Nancy) Jacobs, grandfather to Samuel (Jacqui) Christensen, Jessica (Tom) Baginski, Robert (Samantha) Hipson and Christopher (Courtney) Hipson, and great grandfather to Maya, Christian, and Alexa Baginski. He was predeceased by his first wife, Irene (Watson) and son, Carl Jacobs as well as his second wife, Yvonne (Lawrence). Roy loved to drive and worked as a cement truck driver for King Paving and Dufferin Concrete for 42 years in Oakville before retiring. He was a long-time resident in Oakville. Twentyfive years ago he relocated to Bobcaygeon. He loved to fish, hunt and visit with all of his friends in town. He commenced his second and favourite career as the “only” crossing guard in Bobcaygeon. He had been working as the crossing guard for 12 years and worked the very day he passed away. Roy took great pride in all he did and especially enjoyed being with the children on a daily basis. He will be truly missed and forever in our hearts. A celebration of his life will take place on Sunday November 18th at the Bobcaygeon Legion, Branch 239, at 96 King Street East from 1 until 4 pm. All are welcome to come and remember this special man. 20

The Ontario Trillium Foundation has handed out two seed grants, with a combined total of just over $130,000 to EarlyOn and the Kawartha Cycling Club. The grants will be used to enhance recreation opportunities for older adults and support early learning providers through a physical literacy training program. The Accessible and Adaptive Recreation Project will be led by the Kawartha Cycling Club with project coordination provided by the Kawartha Lakes Sport and Recreation Council (KLSRC). New accessible recreation opportunities for older adults will be coordinated

The members of the Bobcaygeon Seniors Centre would like to thank the following merchants and donors of prizes for our 50th anniversary in helping make our celebration a great success. Thank you!

through a multi-activity pilot program and enhanced by new adaptive equipment, instructor training and an online Accessible Recreation Directory. Through community consultation, the KLSRC heard that there was a need to promote new recreation opportunities that meet the emerging needs of a changing population. Thanks to the $68,600 from the Foundation, older adults will have more accessible opportunities to get active in the City of Kawartha Lakes. The Physical Literacy Network for Early Learning Providers will be led by EarlyON with project coordination provided by KLSRC. In addition to physical literacy training, early learning providers will be supported in their efforts to deliver quality physical activity through peer-to-peer mentorship, network building and ongoing support from a hired consultant. Recent local data indicates a trend toward decreasing movement competence in young children. The $66,300 grant from OTF will help local early learning providers to equip their students with movement skills that are the foundation for lifelong active participation.   The Ontario Trillium Foundation is an agency of the Government of Ontario, and one of Canada’s leading granting foundations. OTF awarded more than $120 million to some 700 projects last year to build healthy and vibrant communities in Ontario.
