More About Glyphosate

I just read the letter from G. Hawkridge in your September 22 issue. I am glad that people are speaking up about glyphosate. I’ve had some dealings with the City myself over the use of glyphosate to supposedly destroy ragweed, which has been spreading rapidly and taking over the roadsides in CKL in the past few years. The manufacturer touts glyphosate as the “standard treatment” for ragweed. In fact, it selectively favours ragweed, which is by now glyphosate-resistant (I have tested the local variety to make sure). It is a skinny plant that the spray bypasses, landing on and destroying all the other plants that would compete for sunlight and nutrients. Ragweed produces the most allergenic type of pollen, causing hay fever and asthma attacks that can be fatal. When it spreads to the fields it is toxic to horses and cattle, and because it is a nutrient hog it reduces crop yields in infected fields by 15 percent. The way to slow down the ragweed is to change the schedule for cutting the roadsides. On the present schedule they are cut just about when the ragweed is starting to come up and is so small it passes under the

blades unharmed, while its competitors are cut down; so the ragweed gets lots of sun, which it thrives on, and its roots are shaded and kept moist. Ragweed has recently become a problem around the world; however biological controls have been successful in China and Italy. Let’s follow their example and work smart -- stop depending on chemical companies for our information and put our money into research to find common sense solutions. Beth Mares Toronto

A Trip Down Memory Lane

As we plan our Thanksgiving dinner, it is with a heavy heart. It will be our last big dinner at Beach Park Campground as it is closing the week after Thanksgiving. This is the end of an era. We have had Fun Days for the kids where we sold raffle tickets to make sure all the kids got prizes for racing and the fishing contest. I started going up there in 1965/1966. I think it was with a secondhand tent and sleeping bags to fold up; then a box trailer to real big trailers that are common today. Memories – where to begin? • A car that went into the lake • Boats overturned in storms • Skunks and baby skunks around our ashes in the campfire • A bull overturning our tent • A roast beef that was put out to cool only to be stolen by a raccoon • The lady who swam daily with only one leg. • Over the years, happy times watching your young family making friends as they caught fish and played cards and board games. It’s been generation after generation and many years for me and lots of my Bobcaygeon friends. Thank you to all our Park owners and clean up folks. It’s been a second home for me and many other families over the years. We will miss that beautiful spot on our beautiful lake in Ontario. Ruby Duncan Lindsay

City Hall Residents Want Short-Term Rental Properties Regulated By Pat Warren

COKL Council Wild Rice Resolution By Pat Warren

City of Kawartha Lakes Council has voted to receive and not support the Selwyn Township resolution regarding Wild Rice. As reported by Glenna Burns, our neighbouring municipality is demanding Parks Canada and the Honourable Catherine McKenna give a progress report on the issue of wild rice harvesting. A working group was formed in 2015 to help resolve issues between property owners and First Nations treaty rights (Williams Treaty). The Selwyn resolution asks Parks Canada for a specific method for harvesting wild rice that considers the needs of adjacent waterfront property owners because the noise from the mechanical method is affecting their enjoyment of the their property. It also asks for the establishment of limits on mechanical harvesting and that there be no harvesting on Sunday. Further, they’ve asked that Parks Canada continue to consider applications for aquatic vegetation removal in this area to allow waterfront property

owners to make use of the waterway. The resolution was sent to local neighbouring municipalities for support. COKL Ward 16 Councillor Stauble, former chair of Kawartha Conservation, made the motion to receive the correspondence from the Township of Selwyn. She stated that Pigeon Lake is within the Williams Treaty area and under Parks Canada jurisdiction so the matter has to be resolved between the First Nations and the Government of Canada. She further said, “The Wild Rice issue is big for the residents and First Nations but the City has absolutely no jurisdiction on this matter. The issues need to be addressed in a respectful manner by the appropriate body so we received the correspondence and forwarded it to the Government of Canada representatives - MP Jamie Schmale and MP Maryam Monsef.”

Rice Harvest Resolution By Glenna Burns

The Manomin (wild rice) harvest has been under way in the Kawarthas and along with the harvest come complaints from lakefront property owners. This year the Township of Selwyn has entered the fray by issuing a resolution which is making the rounds of other municipal governments. The ‘Wild Rice Resolution’, addressed to Parks Canada and the Minister in charge, the Honourable Catherine McKenna, demanded the Federal government ‘working group’ with the seven Williams Treaty First Nations clarify their progress to the public. The ‘resolution’ also complained that mechanical harvesting of Manomin was disturbing lakefront property owners and ‘affecting the enjoyment of their property’. Trent Lakes Council determined that the ‘resolution’ was worth supporting but with some amendments offered by Councillor Peter Raymond. He asked that Parks Canada release what “accomplished milestones had been achieved todate, identify any regulation, process and procedure changes, identify current plans and associated timelines and commit to regular updates to the public, municipalities and agencies.” This contentious issue has not been lost on Curve Lake First Nation resident, playwright and author Drew Hayden Taylor. He is currently working on a production for Tarragon Theatre in Toronto, entitled ‘Cottagers and Indians’ focusing on the Manomin harvesting dispute. Manomin is a plant that holds great significance not only as an edible, nourishing food source and medicine but as a living symbol of First Nation renewal of culture, spirit and pride. It flourishes in clean, shallow water and combats invasive species like the ‘water soldier’. Manomin provides economic and health stability for both First Nation harvesters and users. Once again, this virtuous plant has become a lighting rod for bad feelings, misunderstanding and political manoeuvres.

Water – a precious resource

By Mayor Andy Letham

We don’t always think about it, but when our water comes out of the tap, clean and ready to drink, we can consider ourselves among the privileged majority. According to the World Health Organization, in 2015, 844 million people lacked even a basic drinking-water service and at least 2 billion people had to use a contaminated drinking water source. By 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas. In contrast, Kawartha Lakes residents using municipal water and private wells have access to safe, clean and affordable water. Since we all use municipal water at some point – visiting the doctor’s office or hospital, at school, in a municipal facility such as a recreation centre or arena – I’d like to share a few encouraging facts you may not know about our municipal water. We maintain 21 water systems and six wastewater treatment (sewage) systems. This is a lot of infrastructure to be maintained by a relatively small group of ratepayers. There are only about 13,000 ratepayers who are connected to our water and wastewater systems, out of a total of about 40,000 ratepayers across the municipality. The rest are on private wells and do not pay for water and wastewater systems. We have been actively working to ensure plans are in place to keep up with mandated upgrades and routine maintenance. As a result, user rates have increased. I’m pleased to say we’ve received multi-year funding from the provincial and federal government of over $5 million. This has already helped to stabilize water user rates. We went from an average increase of 4.8 percent in 2016 to 2.84 percent in 2017. An important project that was identified in our recent Asset Management Plan as having a major impact on everyone’s water quality is the new Pumping Station at Rivera Park. It will have the capacity to support our growing municipality and will greatly reduce the potential of bypass (or discharge) of wastewater into the river. This keeps our lakes and rivers clean for everyone’s use.

How safe is our water? We annually undergo rigorous inspections by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change to ensure compliance of our municipal residential drinking water systems under the Safe Drinking Water Act, 2002. We routinely achieve scores of 97 to 100 percent. These are considered exceptional scores. None of the percentage points deducted are related to water quality, but involve clerical or equipment factors and reflect minor improvements that we address each year. Our experienced operators work hard to deliver safe, reliable drinking water every day. A few other recent improvements to our water management include: • We now have a Freeze Prevention program designed to help residents and businesses avoid frozen services. • You may have noticed that the Verulam Water Tower has been freshly painted. It was also restored on the inside to ensure there are no leaks and verify the metal structure is protected so that the reservoir of water is fresh and clean. • We’ve undergone a number of operational changes to be more efficient in the way we deliver water services, including hiring an electrician and new operators, cross training and upgrading licences among our existing operators to reduce our reliance on third party providers and ensure we are able to respond in the case of an emergency. • We’re covered in the event of a water emergency by being a member of OnWARN. This agency provides province-wide support if we ever need it to produce and deliver safe, reliable drinking water in all conditions. I hope that these facts about our water management help to assure you that we are fortunate to have high quality, affordable water available across the vast expanse of our municipality. It’s something that many people in the world only dream of.

Time is just flying by with only two months until our Christmas concert. To prepare, we are now having sectional practices for the last hour on every Tuesday. Basses and tenors alternate with sopranos and altos. The special practices are to iron out any problems with the new music and are well worth attending. Hopefully when we all get together we will hear some improvement. Unfortunately we have lost another chorister due to other commitments. We will miss her. Laura Plummer is continuing to lead the initial part of the practice each night - a singalong with any of the residents who enjoy coming to our practices. Laura also has a store of amusing stories up her sleeve to share with us. Bob Plummer, our fearless leader, recovering from a pulled muscle, is keeping us all on the same beat

I Will Never Understand Americans

By Kirk Winter

The shooting in Las Vegas in early October and the predictable non-reaction by so many in power have me wondering if our friends to the south have completely lost their minds. For full disclosure, I am a gun owner. I am a Canadian gun owner who accepts that gun ownership is a privilege, not a right. I accept that all the bureaucracy involved in purchasing a gun in Canada is for the public good, and for the most part weeds out those who shouldn’t have firearms. I think it is enlightened that every 5 years my spouse has to sign off on my permit application as just another very necessary check and balance on sane and sensible gun ownership in our nation. How is it possible that the United States of America, who has built one of the greatest nations in history, put a man on the moon, and is one of the world’s superpowers cannot come to some kind of national consensus about necessary and responsible gun legislation? The type of legislation that has been proven to save lives in every other industrialized nation? I thought the death of 22 elementary school children at Sandy Hook would mobilize rational and moderate Americans to demand a modicum of laws that would at least prevent the worst of the worst from gaining access to firearms. Obviously, that wasn’t enough.

We now have 59 dead in Las Vegas, with hundreds more injured, by a man who was allowed to accumulate an armoury full of military grade weapons and ammunition. There were no controls. What legitimate sportsman or shooter needs a bump stock that for all intents and purposes turns semiautomatic rifles into fully automatic rifles? In less than 10 minutes with these weapons of war the shooter turned a celebration of country music into a slaughter house. The best it seems that many in power can offer grieving Americans are their, “thoughts and prayers.” If I see one more smug and complacent American politician offer up that stale sound bite I will scream. Our former minister once said that prayer without action is just intellectual laziness. It is time for people to stop paying gun crime in America lip service, and actually pass meaningful legislation that will protect Americans. If Americans can accept what happened in Las Vegas with the shrug of their shoulders, what is it going to take to generate the critical mass necessary for Americans of good will to say enough is enough and finally enter the 21st Century in the realm of safe and sensible gun laws? The time is now, and lives are depending on it.

It’s Easy Being Green When Keeping it Green Goes Wrong

By Julia Taylor

In an effort to reduce our waste, one of the things I did was to switch to paperless billing. In the City of Kawartha Lakes we can do this for our taxes and water bill by signing up for Epost, a free online service that is offered through Canada Post. Signing up was very easy. When we lived in the Point, we were on a well, so when we moved into Fenelon I had to add our new water bill onto our Epost account. It took a bit of messing around because the system didn’t want to accept our postal code (even though I had no issue with our tax bill). After a few phone calls, we got it sorted out and I was set to receive our online

statement for our next water bill. Except... Instead, I received a late notice for our next water bill via snail mail. I tried to correct the situation with a few phone calls and again thought I had it sorted. But I received a late payment notice through snail mail for the next bill. So I asked my neighbour to let me know when she got her water bill and I would just pay the amount that I had being paying for the last year. Thankfully my neighbour reminded me and I did just that. But the plan backfired. I had used more to water some clover seed on our front lawn so I had a higher bill. I then received a final and disconnection notice via snail mail for the short payment! I have now cancelled our e-statement and in the future, will remember to try not to be such a hero to save two pieces of paper every three months! Sometimes it’s easy being a green…sometimes it backfires!

October 20 to November 2 Melodie McCullough

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) You don’t have to be a superstar to do great deeds or feel good about yourself, Aquarius. Even one small act of kindness can mean the world to someone. Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) It’s time to ‘accentuate the positive’, as the old song says. This is no time for negative thoughts and feelings, Pisces. You must move forward and don’t look back! Aries (March 21 to April 20) Every day is a chance to reinvent yourself, Aries. Why not try a different approach, a new way of looking at the world, a change in attitude, a fresh outlook? Who knows what will emerge! Taurus (April 21 to May 21) Struggling to figure out your next steps, career-wise, Taurus? You need to act, but don’t forget to dream. It is dreams that initiate our actions! Gemini (May 22 to June 22) Be cautious of what may seem to be well-meaning advice during this phase, Gemini. It may well be good-hearted, but may NOT be accurate or sustainable – or perhaps just not what you need right now.

Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) Harmony: what does this mean to you, Virgo? In the zodiac world, it means balance, physical calm and spiritual insight. You are on the right path to achieve the harmony you seek. See it through. Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) Love isn’t always easy. It isn’t always roses and candlelight – and never disagreeing. If you can compromise and work together, remembering and staying dedicated to your initial bond, all will be well – and worth the minor spats. Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Your work-life balance is in need of consideration, Scorpio. Employment in something you love is important, but so is the happiness that comes with connection and involvement with nature, family and friends. Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) “The things that we love tell us what we are.”: Thomas Aquinas. What ‘things’ do you love, Sagittarius? And what do you think that says about you? That’s something to ponder during the autumn evenings! Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan 20) It’s ‘relaxation time’ for you, dear Capricorn! Time to slow down, enjoy the languid autumnal days, and store up some energy for some possibly hectic days ahead.

Cancer (June 23 to July 23) The colour yellow will play a prominent role in your romantic life, Cancer. This is a good sign – yellow represents freshness, happiness, positivity, loyalty, and joy. What else could you ask for? Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) Spend time re-acquainting yourself with family and friends, Leo. You’ve been out of touch lately. You need to reconnect and rediscover these ties.

BAD NEWS/GOOD NEWS How​ ​Free​ ​is​ ​our​ ​Freedom​ ​of​ ​ Expression?

By Pamela VanMeer, Kawartha411

According​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Universal​ ​Declaration​ ​of​ ​Human​ ​Rights,​ “f​​reedom​ ​of expression”​​ ​is​ ​the​ ​right​ ​of​ ​every​ ​individual​ ​to​ ​hold​ ​ opinions​ ​without interference​ ​and​ ​to​ ​seek,​ ​receive​ ​and​ ​impart​ ​ information​ ​and​ ​ideas​ ​through any​ ​media​ ​and​ ​regardless​ ​of​ ​ frontiers. But​ ​what​ ​does​ ​that​ ​really​ ​mean? Does​ ​freedom​ ​of​ ​expression​ ​ really​ ​mean​ ​we​ ​are​ ​free​ ​to​ ​do​ ​and​ ​say whatever​ ​we​ ​want? In​ ​2016​ ​NFL​ ​San​ ​Francisco​ ​49ers​ ​quarterback​ ​Colin​ ​ Kaepernick​ ​sat​ ​and later​ ​kneeled​ ​during​ ​the​ ​US​ ​national​ ​anthem​ ​ to​ ​protest​ ​police​ ​brutality​ ​and perceived​ ​racism.​ ​During​ ​a​ ​postgame​ ​interview​ ​on​ ​August​ ​26,​ ​2016,​ ​he said,​ ​“I​ ​am​ ​not​ ​going​ ​ to​ ​stand​ ​up​ ​to​ ​show​ ​pride​ ​in​ ​a​ ​flag​ ​for​ ​a​ ​country​ ​that oppresses​​ black​ ​people​ ​and​ ​people​ ​of​ ​colour.​ ​To​ ​me,​ ​this​ ​is​ ​bigger​ ​than football​​and​​it​​would​​be​​selfish​​on​​my​​part​​to​​look​​the​​other​​way.​​ There​ ​are bodies​ ​in​ ​the​ ​street​ ​and​ ​people​ ​getting​ ​paid​ ​leave​ ​and​ ​ getting​ ​away​ ​with murder.” Since​ ​then​ ​the​ ​protest​ ​has​ ​grown​ ​with​ ​many​ ​other​ ​teams​ ​ following​ ​suit.​ ​On September​ ​24,​ ​2017,​ ​more than ​200​ ​players​ ​ sat​ ​or​ ​kneeled​ ​in​ ​response​ ​to President​ ​Donald​ ​Trump​ ​calling​ ​for​ ​ owners​t​o​fi ​ re​t​he​​protesting​​players. Trump​ ​says​ ​kneeling​ ​during​ ​the​ ​national​ ​anthem​ ​is​ ​ disrespectful​ ​to America’s​ ​war​ ​heroes​ ​and​ ​those​ ​who​ ​fought​ ​for​ ​ freedom​ ​and​ ​should​ ​not​ ​be allowed.​ ​He​ ​encouraged​ ​fans​ ​to​ ​walk​ ​ out​ ​of​ ​games​ ​where​ ​players​ ​didn’t stand​ ​for​ ​the​ ​national​ ​anthem. Recently​ ​in​ ​Peterborough,​ ​a​ ​group​ ​of​ ​white​ ​supremacists​ ​ applied​ ​for​ ​a permit​ ​to​ ​hold​ ​a​ ​rally​ ​on​ ​city​ ​property.​ ​While​ ​the​ ​ permit​ ​was​ ​ultimately​ ​not issued​ ​because​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​paperwork​ ​ wasn’t​ ​submitted​ ​on​ ​time,​ ​the​ ​fact that​ ​a​ ​group​ ​like​ ​this​ ​could​ ​get​ ​ a​ ​permit​ ​for​ ​a​ ​rally​ ​riled​ ​many​ ​residents.

Six ​million​ ​Jews​ ​were​ ​killed​ ​during​ ​the​ ​Holocaust​ ​during​ ​ World​ ​War​ ​II​ ​in​ ​an attempt​ ​by​ ​Adolf​ ​Hitler​ ​to​ ​exterminate​ ​groups​ ​ he​ ​thought​ ​were​ ​less​ ​than perfect.​ ​Many​ ​of​ ​them​ ​were​ ​killed​ ​in​ ​ gas​ ​chambers. Some​ ​people​ ​refuse​ ​to​ ​admit​ ​the​ ​Holocaust​ ​ever​ ​occurred,​ ​ they​ ​are​ ​called “Holocaust​ ​Deniers​” ​and​ ​their​ ​right​ ​to​ ​deny​ ​the​ ​ Holocaust​ ​is​ ​enshrined​ ​in​ ​our freedom​ ​of​ ​expression,​ ​even​ ​if​ ​it’s​ ​ unpopular. After​ ​all,​ ​freedom​ ​of​ ​expression​ ​does​ ​not​ ​mean “​just​ ​for​ ​ people​ ​whose views​ ​are​ ​what​ ​we​ ​consider​ ​to​ ​be​ ​right​ ​or​ ​just​ ​or​ ​ in​ ​the​ ​‘mainstream.’​” ​It’s freedom​ ​to​ ​say​ ​and​ ​think​ ​whatever​ ​you​ ​ want. Freedom​ ​of​ ​expression​ ​is​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​pillars​ ​of​ ​any​ ​democracy.​ ​ In​ ​a​ ​truly​ ​free country​ ​people​ ​should​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​express​ ​their​ ​ opinions​ ​and​ ​beliefs​ ​openly, without​ ​fear​ ​of​ ​retribution​ ​from​ ​ anyone​ ​including​ ​the​ ​police​ ​or​ ​the government. The​ ​good​ ​news​ ​is​ ​that​ ​Freedom​ ​of​ ​Speech​ ​goes​ ​both​ ​ways.​ ​ In Peterborough​ ​the​ ​residents​ ​who​ ​were​ ​outraged​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Neo​ ​ Nazi​ ​rally​ b​eing planned​ ​in​ ​their​ ​community​ ​launched​ ​their​ ​own​ ​ rally​ ​to​ ​espouse​ ​inclusion and​ ​equality​ ​for​ ​all. None​ ​of​ ​the​ ​NFL​ ​football​ ​players​ ​have​ ​been​ ​fired​ ​for​​ kneeling​ ​during​ ​the national​ ​anthem​ ​and​ ​the​ ​whole​ ​world​ ​is​ ​now​ ​ talking​ ​about​ ​Black​ ​Lives Matter. Holocaust​ ​deniers​ ​can​ ​be​ ​fought​ ​with​ ​facts,​ ​using​ ​our​ ​own​ ​ freedom​ ​of speech. In​ ​the​ ​end​ ​humanity​ ​usually​ ​gets​ ​it​ ​right.

Growers in Canada produced almost 64,000 tonnes of pumpkins last year, many of which made their way into pies and jack-o-lanterns.

Did you know that Hallowe’en is the secondhighest season for spending? Christmas is, of course, number one. Statistics Canada reports that in 2016, 3.8 million children between 5 and 14 years of age went out trick or treating. According to Business News Network, last October, monthly sales of candy and snack foods, across the country, came to $419 million. What’s interesting is the according to retailmenot. com, 51 percent of Canadians plan to buy candy for themselves and 72 percent are going to buy more candy than they need so they’ll have leftovers. If you like to spend Hallowe’en with friends, you’d better get out your wallet. Canadians spent $77 on average to go to a Hallowe’en party last year, according to While you may not buy decorations every year, in 2015, Canadians spent an average of $43 to spook out their homes.

Fall for the Academy Theatre

The entertainment line-up at the Academy Theatre this Fall promises a huge variety to appeal to all tastes. Fresh off a sold-out Steve Earle concert and a Pink Floyd tribute, the Academy is presenting former Great Big Sea star Séan McCann on Friday, October 20, in a show that will combine McCann’s beautiful music with his inspiring spoken message about his journey to healing. Saturday, October 21 will see the world-renowned Mediterranean guitarist Pavlo demonstrate his dynamic live performance style that makes him unique among such musical talents. A week later, on October 28, the award-winning Canadian comedy-drama play Jake’s Gift takes the stage with playwright/actor Julia Mackey the sole performer. She wrote this story about a D-Day veteran’s return to Juno Beach on the 60th anniversary of the landing after she herself attended the same anniversary. Looking ahead, it’s the Academy’s own musical theatre production of Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, a fantastic colourful show great for the whole family. The show dates are November 10, 11, 12, 17 and 18 at 7:30pm with two matinee performances on November 12 and 18 at 2pm. This show is a major fundraiser for the Academy Theatre in Lindsay. Please support the theatre by attending. A sneak peek at 2018 reveals Brett Kissel’s We Were That Song tour February 13, and Bruce Cockburn’s Bone

The Rotary Club of Lindsay partnered with WasteLogix for its annual shred, “E” waste and scrap metal disposal day in September. Although the event started at 10, the public began to arrive at 9:15 and they were ready. The Rotary members and guests shredded 11 tons (10,000 kg) of confidential paper documents, all of which will go back into recycled paper. They also gathered about 4,000 pounds (1850 kg) of “E” waste and 1,000 pounds (455 kg) of scrap metal. The Rotary Club picked up documents to be shredded and stored them in a secure facility located at Waste-Logix until the big shred day. Donations of “E” waste were also picked up and stored until the same day. The Club charged $7 per bankers box to be shredded and the “E” waste and scrap metal were accepted on a no-charge basis. In addition to WasteLogix, other participants in this project were Miller Waste Systems and Lindsay Iron and Metal. It was a perfect day for this event and lunch was donated by Charlie and Amy McDonald who own the Grand Experience Restaurant in Lindsay. Although the exact financial information is not yet available, it is estimated that this project will add to the Club’s fundraising by $10,000. The funds will be used for community projects around town like the Wilson Field washroom project which should be completed by the end of October. Their sights are now on a new splash pad for Elgin Park located on Angeline Street North. The Rotary Club would very much like to thank everyone who took part in this project with them and the public who supported it.

Habitat Saved

The last significant undeveloped shoreline in the Kawarthas has been saved from a 58-unit housing development on Stoney Lake, immediately adjacent to Burleigh Falls. The Vancouver-based developer Burleigh Bay Corporation (“BBC”) had planned to build the community, plus 72-slip marina, fitness facility, clubhouse, guest cottages, swimming pool, parking lots and internal roadway system in two provincially significant wetlands (PSWs), containing the habitat of the “threatened” Blanding’s turtle and muskellunge.   “We’re elated. This gives the Kawarthas a breathtaking opportunity to preserve an extraordinary natural setting that can’t be replaced,” said Heather Brooks-Hill, a third-generation Stoney Lake resident and Director of the Friends of Fraser Wetlands (FFW).     The Board cited the location of the development in and around the PSWs as one of the most “compelling” reasons for denying approval.  The Decision endorses the testimony of FFW expert Mr. Gord Miller, former Environmental Commissioner of Ontario, who testified that wetland complexes must be afforded a higher degree of protection and cannot be isolated.  “Our Elders asked us to save this wilderness and all the species in it, to respect the ancestors and the

land they frequented many years ago. These historic reminders were told at Council and at the hearing, and evidence is still in abundance all along the north shore of Stoney Lake,” said Chief Phyllis Williams of Curve Lake First Nation, a party to the 19-day hearing, supported by the Alderville, Hiawatha and Scugog First Nations.  The hearing took place partly on the Reserve, a first for the OMB.   “This is a spectacular result for residents, First Nations’ rights, their relationship to the land, and the environment, on par with great place-names of Ontario environmental victories like Temagami and the Oak Ridges Moraine,” said David Donnelly, counsel to FFW and Curve Lake First Nation.

While the weather may be chillier and we’re not thinking of the need to cool off from the heat, the new Splash Pad in Fenelon Falls at Garnet Graham Park is finished and ready for next season. The Fenelon Falls Rotary Club raised more than $200,000 to build the pad. Weather delays earlier this summer pushed the opening date, but Jim Sackston, Chair of the Splash Pad Committee is proud of the work that’s been done. City Council has added a voluntary $10,000 donation to the project, coming from a donation to the City from Evergreen Power Limited. Because the project came in under budget, Sackston says they’ll use the remaining funds to renovate the old “Munchy Hut” close to the Splash Pad with washrooms and changerooms in the spring.

Hurricanes in the American South. Floods nearly everywhere we look. Records for winter snowfall and summer heat being broken right and left. There’s no question that our weather is changing. Fortunately, the country’s best-known, most trusted and best-loved climatologist, David Phillips of Environment and Climate Change Canada, is coming to explain it to us. Phillips will be speaking at Cambridge Street United Church on Sunday, October 29 at 2pm. It’s part of the church’s Stinson Memorial Lecture Series. There is no admission fee and the event is open to all. With 45 years’ experience observing and researching weather and climate, Phillips is uniquely positioned to explain both how the weather is changing, and what we have in store in the future. The event is organized by community representatives, church members and Fleming College. Phillips will also speak to students at LCVI, I. E. Weldon and Fleming College on Monday, Oct. 30. The Stinson Memorial Lecture Series is funded by the proceeds of a bequest left by Cambridge Street member T.H. Stinson, a prominent Lindsay lawyer and Member of Parliament, in memory of his wife, Ella.


Queen Street United Church, now at 101-55 Mary Street West, Lindsay, has called Rev. M. Robin

Thomson to be their new Minister. Rev. Robin began her new ministry the last week of August. Rev. Robin was ordained in 1982 and was first settled in the Sebright-Rama pastoral charge, living with the native community and serving four rural churches. She holds a Master of Theology degree, Advanced Degree Study from the Toronto School of Theology, a Master of Divinity, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree, both from the University of Toronto as well as being a Minister of Music from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto. Rev. Robin is a registered Bereavement Counsellor and has a strong commitment to pastoral care and visitation. Rev. Robin and Rick live in Ajax. Rick is retired from Ontario Power Generation. Rev. Robin’s Covenanting Service will be held at 3pm on Sunday, October 29. Weekly Worship services are held Sunday morning at 10am. All are welcome to join the Queen Street church family and meet Rev. Robin.

Health & Wellness Improve your mind, body and spirit

The City is hosting a free community wellness event on Thursday, November 9 from 10am to 3pm at The Lindsay Armouries, 210 Kent Street West, Lindsay. “Wellness is an important factor in reducing the risk of stress, illness and disease and helps ensure positive relationships with others,” explains Jane Pryde, Workplace Health and Safety Coordinator. “The Wellness Fair provides an opportunity to learn about wellness resources within the community.” Highlights of the Kawartha Lakes Wellness Fair include: • free flu shot clinic • free health screenings • community health and wellness experts • free 20-minute fitness class


When children with hearing loss in both ears are treated in accordance with Early Hearing Detection and Intervention guidelines, they can improve their vocabulary skills. According to a recent small study, hearing-impaired children who met all three components of the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention guidelines (hearing screening by 1 month, diagnosis of hearing loss by 3 months, and intervention by 6 months) had significantly higher vocabularies than those who did not. Aside from experiencing better language outcomes, the children treated to early intervention also gained long-term benefits in reading ability. These findings provide strong incentive to test newborns’ hearing and provide those in need with treatment as soon as possible. As a primary source of information for learning, the auditory system is key for a child’s healthy development. Because there are many different reasons for any hearing loss, early detection is crucial to successfully addressing the impairment. If you have questions or concerns about your child’s hearing, or to make an appointment to have your own hearing tested, please give us a call. P.S. Most infant hearing screening tests are performed prior to discharge from the hospital or birthing clinic.

• interactive activities • opportunities to win prizes “We hope the fair will assist local businesses who may not have the resources to provide their own wellness programs,” continues Pryde. “Employee wellness benefits employers by reducing absenteeism, improving morale and increasing focus and productivity.” For more information about attending the Kawartha Lakes Wellness Fair or to find out how your business can participate please contact Jane Pryde by calling 705-324-9411 extension 1242 or e-mail jpryde@ A list of vendors will be available soon at


It just became a whole lot simpler to call the local health unit. The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit recently launched an auto attendant phone system designed to help callers easily connect with the department they are trying to reach. Previously, the Health Unit had a separate number for each of its three offices, requiring people to sometimes call multiple offices to connect with appropriate program staff. Under the new automated system, callers can dial the Health Unit’s toll-free number 1-866-888-4577, select an option out of the choices provided, and be connected directly with the program staff they need. If they are don’t know who to speak with, callers still have the choice to speak with a live person to have their call directed. Those calls are answered primarily by the

Receptionists are still located at each of the three Health Unit offices to help people visiting the Health Unit and provide additional support to the program staff. “Our reception staff are still at each office to greet visitors, answer questions about programs, and assist people using our services,” says Masciangelo. “The way we are answering the phones may have changed, but our commitment to customer service is as important as ever.”

Criminals can use your stolen identity documents to: • access your computer and email accounts; • access your bank accounts, open new bank accounts, or transfer bank balances; • apply for loans, credit cards and other goods and services;

If you think you have been a victim: • Check your bank and credit card statements and report any suspicious activity; • Report any missing mail or statements right away; and, • Call your financial institution to suspend your accounts.

If you or someone you know has been a victim of identity theft or identity fraud, contact your local police service or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).


With the seasonal color changes beginning across the province, many drivers will be out enjoying the scenery. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are reminding drivers that regardless of where you are travelling, your attention needs to be focused on driving. Drivers also need to be aware of their surroundings and scan for animals that may be standing or crossing the roads directly into the path of traffic. The OPP have investigated over 6,000 collisions involving wildlife so far this year. One of them involved a fatality and 300 involved injuries. Over the last three years, the OPP has investigated over 10,000 collisions annually involving wildlife. Recently, some of those collisions have involved elk, bear and deer. It is also believed that many more collisions involving smaller animals go unreported. OPP collision data also shows that the spring and fall seasons are when motorists driving in rural areas need to be extra cautious as wildlife become more active. It is important to remember that deer, moose and elk crossing signs are only posted where there are frequent sightings or crossings; however, these animals Melda Roache Clark Presents SocialServicesDivision can be seen anywhere at any time.
