Off the top The Kawartha Promoter, in this edition, has investigated how Parks Canada changes to the Trent-Severn Waterway (TSW) have impacted our city. We know that the number of boaters who have come through the locks has declined over 2012, down 4,584 vessels between Bobcaygeon and Kirkfield alone as of Friday, Sept. 13. Can we attribute this entirely to reduced lock hours, and in some cases roving crews at the smaller locks along the TSW? In part, yes. We do have to acknowledge though that the season did get off to a slow start thanks to a wet spring; that the price of gas has deterred some boaters and the economy in general is sluggish. However, all of the uncertainty surrounding Parks Canada’s scramble to cut spending on the TSW – to meet a Conservative pledge to balance the books by 2015 - has definitely hurt the waterway and the businesses that rely on it for summer income. A Fall analysis is underway by various parties – Parks Canada,

area chambers of commerce and stakeholder groups. That is good. But the Autumn challenge is to ensure that any short-term changes are identified and announced as soon as possible so boaters making plans for 2014 are fully educated about what to expect. And the real key moving forward is pin-pointing what can be done to ensure the TSW’s longterm viability, for the next 50 years and beyond. MP Barry Devolin admits his Private Members’ Bill – to remove Parks Canada and make the TSW an independent entity under the Ministry of Transportation - could take two years to get through and on its own is very unlikely to pass. His goal is to have the government pick up his idea, of creating something such as the Greater Toronto Airports Authority to oversee the TSW. It’s not a bad idea. And his colleagues in Ottawa would do well to remember that you can’t cut your way to success. However, better marketing of this crown jewel can certainly help it to reach its potential and lead to success for all of us.

City Hall

by Lisa Gervais

During the Sept. 10 regular council meeting it was announced that the city is moving ahead with a performance-based management system it says will identify the most efficient, value-added way to provide government services. Director of corporate services, Mary-Anne Dempster will oversee the project with nine staff working under her at the next highest level and another 45 managers poised to also be trained this fall. In a city press release, Dempster said; “This is about continuous improvement. How do we know our processes work? Are we simply doing it as it has always been done and how do we keep score?” A team of nine facilitators has been selected to be trained later this month as so-called Lean Six Sigma black belts. They have been seconded from their current positions for 18 months to two years and the city said that each will be assigned a project that will add value to the bottom line and to the customer, and will work with a team of so-called green and yellow belts to achieve that result. Asked what effect that would have on their current jobs, including people such as top numbers’ cruncher Sara Beukeboom, Dempster said other employees would be chipping in to cover the work that has to be done. Communications officer Brenda Stonehouse is one of the nine so-called black belts. She said she is already documenting the processes of her job to ensure that what has to be done gets done by somebody else during her temporary secondment. Along the way, she said she is already finding that some of the things that she has been doing may no longer be required so “the landscape is going to change.” She will soon be focusing her eye on processes surrounding the city’s fleet of vehicles and will work with manager Todd Bryant and his team on making that department more effective and efficient. The city said that Lean Six Sigma provides a comprehensive set of tools, techniques and approaches to allow an organization to gather customer requirements, analyze existing performance against those requirements, implement solutions to address performance gaps, and maintain the improved state. Tools and techniques are used that are best suited for the specific problem being addressed, they said. While there is a lot of jargon associated with this, and it is a hard one to wrap one’s head around, it boils down to standardized ways of doing things better to ensure the city is accountable to its

taxpayers and to hopefully achieve some financial savings along the way. For example, Dempster said maybe it now takes the city’s human resources department 45 days to get from a job candidate’s initial contact with HR until a job offer is made. She said the review may determine that 30 days is a better time frame to meet customers’ expectations so it is a matter of changing the process to achieve that goal and stick to it. “It’s about measuring the process’ performance,” she stressed, not city employees’ performances. The city has invested some $362,000 on the project to date, including working with consultant Alignment Strategies.

Highway name change approved

City council voted 15-2 to endorse the naming of a section of Highway 115/35 from the 401 East exit to Lansdowne St. E./Highway 7 Peterborough to the John M. Turner Way. Turner, who died last January, is a former Peterborough MPP who was also a Speaker of the Ontario Legislature. MPP Jeff Leal asked for council’s support.

Buddhists don’t want industrial wind turbines

The property development manager for the Cham Shan Temple in the Bethany/Pontypool area is opposed to four proposed industrial wind projects. In a letter tabled at the Sept. 10 meeting, Diane Chen wrote in part, “In light of the increasing number of reports detailing adverse health effects and the impact on the environment and the community, we respectfully advise you of our strong opposition to the proposed wind projects in the city of Kawartha Lakes and Township of Cavan Monaghan.” The Cham Shan Temple group is looking to spend more than $40 million over the next couple of decades to develop 7800 acres into four temples.

Logie Street iron bridge switchback

Council approved spending $72,100 of mostly reserve money to put a switchback at the Logie Street iron bridge to make it safer. Ward 12 Coun. Gord James pushed for it, citing health and safety concerns for children with an unsuitable toboganning slope. But Ward 7 Coun. Brian Junkin was not having any of it, saying he had personally walked the recreational trail and he did not find the slope onerous; was not happy the switchback was designed by a service club and thought snowmobilers would have an issue if handrails were attached. It passed 15-2.

Letters to editor

There are some very amazing people and programs in Lindsay. My husband suffered a very severe hemorrhagic stroke a year ago and was in two hospitals before I was able to get him transferred to the Ross Memorial. Prior to his arrival at the Ross I was given no hope for his recovery and was informed that he would not walk, talk or eat again. I am a retired Registered Nurse and I also knew my husband was a fighter. He had lived a healthy lifestyle, never had a drink in his life, never smoked a cigarette and walked the dog 15 miles a day. I was not going to give up on him. On the first day he arrived at the Ross Memorial Hospital the doctor stood at his bedside and said this is a very serious stroke but our goal is for you to walk out of here. The speech therapist had him eating a full meal in a week and the occupational therapist had him walking with a cane in five months when he left the hospital. I owe my husband’s life to the staff at the Ross. I worked very hard with my husband at home doing all the exercises and therapy that was recommended by the hospital. After six months at home I knew he needed more but did not know what to do. Again I was very lucky to be referred to “Closing the Gap” rehab program in Lindsay. There he met Sal the physiotherapist and after a

lengthy assessment I was informed that they would be able to help him. The guarantee was that he would be doing more than he was doing now. My husband is so motivated to get better and Sal is a very motivated physiotherapist so they work very well together. Within a very short time my husband was gaining more strength, he could roll over in bed and this meant he was getting better sleeps, he was able to get in and out of the pool and swim on his back in a lifejacket, he was able to lift his paralyzed leg high enough to get in and out of the shower and today after four months he can walk without a cane. He continues in the program and is getting better all the time. This program “Closing the Gap” is phenomenal; the staff are wonderful and very caring. I stay with my husband during the time he is there and I watch and learn. Everyone is treated with dignity and respect and the goal is to improve functioning while regaining confidence and a better quality of life. I consider myself very lucky to live in Bobcaygeon and have access to these amazing programs and amazing people. It does not happen everywhere and I know this from experience, I have seen firsthand where health professionals give up hope and thank God I did not accept their advice and give up. Thank God for those professionals who give hope and who are dedicated. I have informed

Ross Memorial Hospital how thankful I am to them and their staff for giving me back my husband but now I wish to thank all the staff and Sal at “Closing the Gap” program for giving him back his pride, his confidence, his sense of humour and most of all for making him a healthier and happier person.

Promoter fan speaks out

The Lindsay Post was here when I came in the 60’s and I really didn’t want it to go without a proper goodbye. It will be missed. I was saddened, and while I expected closing in the future, it still doesn’t make it seem right. One-hundred-and-fifty years in the town and it closes abruptly with the publisher saying six employees had lost their jobs. But could he not have thanked or at least mentioned the workers behind the scenes such as delivery people. We had The Post delivered every week by a man in a truck. Did he not lose his job? They did it rain or shine. They are now pushing the Examiner from Peterborough. (Former publisher) Mr. (G.H.) Wilson gave so much to this town and now he must be rolling in his grave. I realize times change but is this the way to change them? In finishing, I think the Promoter does a wonderful job of telling the facts. Please keep it up and I admire your town (Bobcaygeon). Everybody seems so vibrant and alive and everybody is involved in so many events. Keep up the good work Bobcaygeon.

Chinese companies to sue the government of Canada if Canada’s laws hinder their expectation of profits. For example, when British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec oppose Enbridge pipelines, then China is permitted to sue the respective provinces for anticipated loss of profits ranging into billions of dollars. Secret tribunals outside of Canada’s jurisdiction will establish compensation for these companies with damages in the billions of dollars paid by Canadian taxpayers. The FIPA will undermine Canada’s ability to set environmental protections. Therefore, environmental legislation gutted in Omnibus Bills C-38 and C-45 may not be restored for the duration of the FIPA. Thirty-one years is a long time to lose sovereignty over your own environment and, sad to say China`s track record on environmental degradation is staggering and that`s in their own country. It is incredibly important to call your MP or MPP. This area would be Barry Devolin MP and Laurie Scott MPP and tell them that there has been no public consultation on this important issue and it cannot go ahead without that taking place first. Why have we not been told the facts? If this is such a great deal for Canada then why the secrecy. If it was that good I would be blaring it from every street corner and so would you. We have less than 20 days to say something. Steve Clarke

I want to take a moment to bring to your attention an issue which will change the face of Canada forever.

If ratified and diplomatic notes are exchanged, Canada will be locked into this deal for 31 years. Under this arrangement, new powers will be granted to

He says he and his friends had to rush back to Lock 32 in Bobcaygeon the previous afternoon, to make the earlier closing time, and he wasn’t happy about it. He says reduced lock hours have had an impact

on boaters this season. Some local merchants and their associations say the change has taken a toll on area businesses as well. “Get hours back to what they used to be and it will boom again,” Selinger predicts. Bobcaygeon & Area Chamber of Commerce general manager Ruthann Wilson would like to see hours restored too but it isn’t likely to be that simple. Parks Canada concedes that boating numbers have decreased this year from last. Spokeswoman Genevieve Patenaude says 18,903 boats travelled the lock system between Bobcaygeon and Kirkfield as of Friday, Sept. 13 – down from 23,487 last year. However, she said seasonal fluctuations are normal and due largely to changes in weather and economic factors like the price of gas. She isn’t fingering reduced lock hours, or roving lock crews, instead saying “the operational changes we have implemented this season align service with periods of peak visitation. It is important to note that the vast majority of lock stations and bridges continue to provide ‘upon arrival’ service, as in previous years.” She added that services had been upgraded during this season to include a phone number that will connect the boater to lock staff, so that they can provide estimated lockage times. Fees were also frozen for three years. Jill Quast of Happy Days Houseboats in Bobcaygeon isn’t buying it, though. She said that for the first time in 14 seasons they did not have all of their houseboats rented and cancellations increased by more than 100%. She said gas prices are no higher than last year and the weather has not been significantly different so equates the drop to service cuts on the TSW as well as negative publicity steering boaters away. “For me, the TSW just seems really muddled.” At the chamber, Wilson has heard boating was down 40% this season but cannot supply a source for this information. She said resorts in particular had a tough year. She acknowledged high gas prices may have contributed but thinks it is due to the waterway cuts, especially in a town that only has May to September “to make it.” At Rosedale Marina, manager Juanita McCoy said business was “way down, at least 20% in traffic.” Every day, she said she heard boaters complaining about lock hours, the time it took to get through the system and the fact there was not even a lockmaster at some locks when they arrived. Bigger marinas, such as Gordon Yacht Harbour Marina in Bobcaygeon and the Fenelon Falls Marina said their businesses were not greatly affected by the changes although they don’t think service cuts are a good thing. Gordon Yacht Harbour Marina owner Charles Pitcher said it is taking longer to get through the lock system and that is deterring transient boaters. He added that fewer and fewer people are buying passes, opting to pay trip by trip. Ultimately he

thinks the answer is greater commercialization of the TSW. MP Barry Devolin agrees. He’d like to see it taken out of Parks Canada’s control and be handed to an authority, a more independent model similar to the Greater Toronto Airports Authority with a board of directors comprising all three levels of government as well as stakeholders. He is looking for a fix for the next 50 years or so. Marc Ackert, the captain aboard ship for the Kawartha Voyageur, said there would be a period of evaluation this fall but he thinks there has been a “drastic decline” in use, which he attributes to “misunderstandings and mis-information” that left boaters, or potential boaters, confused. He is advocating for a better education program for 2014. But before that can happen, he hopes Parks Canada and other stakeholders, including the TSW Working Group that he is a part of, can come up with a game plan. “There has to be buy-in by partners to come up with ideas for revenue generation and what

capacity this canal has to move forward. We need to put together a comprehensive plan.” Quast feels better after getting a letter from the federal government this week pledging: “the agency will work with local members of parliament, community leaders and the tourism industry to develop and implement an improved operating model to ensure long-term financial sustainability on its canal operations.”

Disaster relief concert coming

KAWARTHA LAKES - The City of Kawartha Lakes disaster relief committee has announced a fundraising concert at the Academy Theatre Oct. 26 at 8 p.m., featuring performances by The Odyssey Project, Tom Collver, James Barker, Terri Crawford & Rick Johnson, and Kylie McCullough. All proceeds will go towards helping those affected by flooding in the city last April, when record-breaking high waters in the Black, Gull, and Burnt rivers forced hundreds of residents to flee their homes, causing thousands of dollars in damage and the area being declared a disaster area by the provincial government. The city was under a state of emergency for 24 days as the devastating waters forced residents to temporary shelters with nothing more than what they could carry with them. The Ontario government will match funds raised locally two to one – every dollar raised will generate $3 in assistance for those in need. Tickets are $25 for adults, $22.50 for students/ seniors, and are available at the Academy Theatre box office, or online at tickets#scTicket2726 Momentum is building with the second mayor’s breakfast for flood relief a rousing success last Thursday (Sept. 12) at the Royal Canadian Legion in Coboconk. Also, recently, The Kawartha Lakes Professional Fire Fighters Association Local 1701 presented a $500 donation; the Burnt River fire fighters presented a $300 donation; British Empire Fuels’ employees raised $1000 at their annual staff BBQ and owners

but fair, expecting dedication and a work ethic but also showing his gratitude and leading by example. She said if an employee was having financial problems, he would lend them money but always set a deadline for payback because he believed in help outs, not hand-outs. As a family man, Carly said her dad worked hard but played hard too, recalling skiing trips and cruises. And even when he was his busiest in summer, he had time for his children, taking them on service calls and teaching them to be independent and smart with money. Asked why she thought he was so well respected, MP 33:21Carly 31/said 70/40“he 1believed spe.kcvery aB drmuch aC tsoP ecal in giving back to the community, youth and the industry in a completely selfless way and was very dedicated to family, work, the industry and community.”


BOBCAYGEON – Gary Poole is being remembered as an iconic Bobcaygeon businessman and family man after passing away earlier this month. Gary lost a courageous battle to cancer on Sept. 7 and has been honoured by scores of people at visitations, his Sept. 12 funeral service and in online condolences. His daughter, Carly spoke with The Kawartha Promoter on Sept. 17. She said that Gary joined his dad Frank in becoming a partner in Buckeye Marine in the summer of 1980. He had a degree in urban planning and had gone to teachers’ college so he did long-term occasional teaching stints in the off-season at both the elementary and high school levels. However, it wasn’t long before the marina job became full-time as the business went from being mostly a tackle store that sold aluminum fishing boats and small engines to a purveyor of fibreglass vessels and a subsequent move to the current location on the highway. The business has been highly successful, being named the Top Canadian Dealer in Boating Industry’s Top 100 Dealer Program every year inception in 2005. Carly said suoicsince aps theruprogram’s o her dad believed the program helped them to be a raperpbetter fehbusiness C evitubecause cexE they were looking at what they were doing and it raised the bar for the entire o htiwindustry.

Rest Assure will help you move LINDSAY – For more than 12 years, Lindsaybased Rest Assure has been helping retirees to better their lives in the Kawarthas. They are all about home care, assisting people to remain in their homes for as long as possible. But, when circumstances require a move to a nursing or retirement home, seniors apartment or family member, they are now there too. Rest Assure recently expanded to include a senior’s re-location service, just one new service from a business that is growing thanks to increasing demand. Owner Marie Leger said seniors will get a telephone call telling them that space is now available and the timeline to move in may be tight with family living far away. She said Rest Assure wants to help make the move convenient and more personalized because they understand how stressful and overwhelming downsizing and moving can be. Marie will go in to do an assessment. She said sometimes it is a matter of being a mediator. For example, a couple’s daughter may be telling them

that they can’t bring their bed to their new home even though they may have used it their whole married life. Marie said it might be a matter of her sitting down with the couple and saying they can bring the bed but might have to downsize to a smaller dresser. She helps them and the family to make loving decisions.

“It’s more than just about packing boxes and selling a home, it’s sorting through years of memories, precious keepsakes and personal belongings,” Marie said.

Their service will co-ordinate all of the details of relocating. Their goal is to ensure peace of mind and make a client’s move as smooth as possible from start to finish. They offer a full-packaged service, however partial packages are available tailored to needs. It is yet another service from the caring team at Rest Assure, which provides a range of services, including personal care, shopping, meal preparation, light housekeeping, companionship, medication reminding and a registered D.V.A.

Scarecrows join Harvest Happenings

FENELON FALLS - A first-ever ‘scarecrow festival’ will highlight this year’s Fenelon’s Harvest Happenings, taking place on the Saturday of the Thanksgiving long weekend. To kick off the event, organizers have invited their sponsors to create a scarecrow to be viewed and judged on Oct.12. Scarerows can also be put in place earlier, for all to see and to give the harvest season an early start. It is hoped that scarecrows will be visible indoors, outdoors, or at the harvest headquarters @ Slices N’ Scoops, where they will be displayed. “We encourage any participants who wish to take part in the scarecrow festival to bring their scarecrow down and label it with your business name,” organizers said. “The scarecrows will be a fantastic addition to Harvest Happenings and we are hoping to

have your support. If you would like to take part in the competition please let us know by Oct. 4, so we are sure not to miss your character. There will be a first place prize and a second place prize awarded. If you have any further questions please contact the Fenelon and District Chamber of Commerce for more information.” Harvest Happenings is a kid-friendly, small town event that runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with store draws happening at 4 p.m. The downtown businesses will have draw prizes available after purchase and organize wagon rides, popcorn, balloon twisters and pumpkin painting. It’s a great community event.

We also have a licensed lounge for relaxing get-togethers after curling and the many social events that are held throughout the season. Plan to attend our Open House October 19th to check out our facilities and excellent ice making capabilities. Novice curlers can try the sport for the first time using our equipment. All you need is comfortable clothing, gloves and clean running shoes. Our fees are very competitive and our curling season runs from late-October to the end of March. During that time we hold several bonspiels and raise money for local charities.

The Chamber of Commerce and Boyd Heritage Museum, who organized a royal tea and baby shower afternoon, are sure Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II would have appreciated the recognition of her 60 years on the Throne. Certainly, Roberta Bruyea, her “stand-in” for the occasion, expressed her pleasure. They’re equally certain Her Royal Highness, Duchess of Cambridge Catherine “Kate” Middleton, as the new mother of a prince of the realm, would have been pleased at the large number of gifts donated for the newborn and young children being harboured with their mothers by Women’s Resources. Organized by chamber office manager Ruthann Wilson and Boyd Heritage Museum manager Barb McFadzen, the Aug. 23 event attracted 42 nattilyattired ladies, who dined on fancy squares and crustfree sandwiches, petit fours homemade by Mary Pollard and Jen Anderson and accompanied by jam and clotted cream, and cupcakes. Tea was, of course, featured. Prepared by Patricia Daniels-Burry (Mayberry’s on Main Bed and Breakfast), the royal repast was served by Barb McFadzen, Debbie, Joyce Bryant and Isobel Oliver. Generosity was a byword, with the requisite one gift per guest exceeded. This caring can only be acknowledged by the biggest and best thank you. The gifts – they ranged from a beautiful handcrafted blanket for a child-size bed to infant’s and children’s matched outfits and clothing, baby products and toyswere handed over to Women’s Resources on Sept. 13. It was a memorable event that illustrated just how much love and caring this small corner of the Queen’s realm can generate – thank you to all participants. Memorable dates: 155th annual Bobcaygeon Fall Fair, “The Daddy of Em All”, Bobcaygeon Fairgrounds, Thursday, Sept. 26 to Saturday, Sept. 28t; Farmers’ Market, Bobcaygeon Fairgrounds, Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. to Thanksgiving weekend, October 10; Christmas House Tour, 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 7.

Kinette news

BOBCAYGEON - I have to keep reminding myself it is September, we’ve had our first Kinette meeting and the fair is looming large, and I am sitting here dripping. First things first, a big thank you to everyone who donated their trinkets and treasures and to those who found many things that they just had to have. Our sale on July 13 was, as always. a success. Once again we will have a booth in the Curling Club during the fair. Sandwiches, hot dogs, snacks and sweets, along with hot and cold beverages will be available. We are just inside the door, handy to get something to keep you going as you walk around looking at all the variety of displays. Looking further ahead, various chairpersons and their committees are planning the Friendship Dinner, Santa’s Breakfast and The Kinette Santa Claus Parade, which will again be held 5 p.m. and is absolutely beautiful with all the lights. We hope everyone will attend these events and make them as successful this year as they have been in the past. Submitted by Kinette June Jokinen

New Kawartha Lakes cycling maps will be introduced Saturday (Sept. 21) during the Kawartha Cycling Club’s 10th annual Kawartha Lakes Classic Cycling Tour. It’s all part of the city tourism department’s yearlong effort to promote cycle tourism in the area. It has been working with local cycling organizations to highlight opportunities for adult cycling vacations. “The potential of cycling as a tourist draw to Kawartha Lakes is enormous,” said tourism development officer Laurie Bell. “Cycle tourists represent a new and untapped revenue stream that will bring a significant increase in tourism numbers and dollars to Kawartha Lakes.” The initiative began in January and includes: the recently implemented ‘Share the Road’ signage campaign, a program coordinated by the Kawartha Cycling Club and Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit (HKPRDHU); the map, which will include six road routes throughout Kawartha Lakes with a corresponding route signage program; promotion of the Welcome Cyclist Network to local businesses throughout Kawartha Lakes to certify cycle-friendly businesses and provide cycle-tourism product knowledge training and development of a marketing campaign to promote Kawartha Lakes as a premiere cycling destination. Recent research shows that cycle tourists in Ontario tend to be middle to senior professionals with higher than average incomes – 45% make more than $75,000 a year. They also stay longer and spend more money than other tourists. In 2010, two million Canadian/Ontario visitors participated in cycling activities in Ontario and spent $391 million, an increase of 25% and 18% respectively from 2009. “Cycle tourism gives visitors a way to experience the natural beauty of Kawartha Lakes and its local businesses and attractions in an environmentally friendly and physically active way,” Bell said. “Our cycling landscape in Kawartha Lakes offers cyclists a three-season experience with varied terrain that is awe inspiring.”


Welcome Wagon representatives Kathy Simpson of Fenelon Falls, Susan Brewster of Bobcaygeon, Heather Dyer of Lindsay and area manager Elenor McDougall present Steve Clarke of Steve’s Barbershop with a plaque in recognition of 20 years of sponsorship.

Community Cares

KAWARTHA LAKES - The beauty of an organization that offers a wide variety of support such as Community Care City of Kawartha Lakes lies in the fact that the services often can be “bundled” - if a client is using one service, s/he may quite often benefit from others that are available. A large percentage of the agency’s clients make use of more than one program. For example, a person who attends the Adult Day program that is offered several times a week in Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon may also order Meals on Wheels from the agency. Or, that same individual may use the Community Care transportation program to get to activities such as Diners Club or seniors exercise classes. Community Care’s programs encompass a wide spectrum of needs for local residents. The agency’s traditional Community Support Services were originally developed to serve seniors and people with special needs, but expansion over the past few years means that Community Care now offers support to people of all ages. Programs are grouped into four service areas - Community Support, the Community Health Centre for the City of Kawartha Lakes, Hospice grief and bereavement support, and a low-income dental clinic for local residents who meet eligibility criteria. However, by bundling the help that is available, anyone can find out more about all services through any office of Community Care.

KAWARTHA LAKES - To meet the challenge of growing demand and risings costs, the Canadian Cancer Society will begin charging a $100 registration fee for new patients in Ontario who register with the society’s transportation services after Oct. 1. The one-time registration fee will apply to new patients only and will help ensure the society is able to continue helping patients with rides, a release said. “The Canadian Cancer Society is committed to providing transportation but the service is expensive – we spend more than $6 million a year on the program and we’ve seen almost a 20% increase in the number of patients needing rides in one year alone,” said Tanya Nixon, senior manager, transportation, Canadian Cancer Society. “This was a difficult but necessary decision to ensure the future of our transportation service so that we can continue to help cancer patients get to treatment.” For more information about the change to the transportation program, visit Frequently Asked Questions on

Pregnant pause

KAWARTHA LAKES Expectant mothers, and women trying to get pregnant, are being reminded this fall that there is no safe time, amount or type of alcohol to drink if expecting a baby. A local health official is educating the public about the risks of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) which describes a range of disabilities, birth defects and brain damage that can affect babies whose mothers consume alcohol during pregnancy. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, FASD is the leading known cause of preventable development disability in the country affecting 1% of the population, or approximately 350,000 Canadians.

“Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is only one of the problems that can develop when you drink even small amounts of alcohol during pregnancy,” says Laura Abbasi, a registered dietitian with the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit. “Consuming alcohol when you are pregnant can also lead to increased risk of miscarriages, stillbirths and low-birth weight infants.” Abbasi notes that FASD can lead to brain damage, deformities of the bones and limbs, organ damage, slow growth and learning difficulties. These conditions are permanent and life-long, and can affect a child’s decision-making ability, relationship with others, ability to learn in school and future employment. This fall, the health unit will be promoting the benefits of an alcohol-free pregnancy through public displays set up at partner agencies in Northumberland County, Haliburton County and the City of Kawartha Lakes.

their babies. Information about OEYC programs, breastfeeding resources, and the coalition will be available from OEYC staff at the trailer. “We are so pleased that the Lindsay Exhibition is continuing to offer a family-friendly environment supportive of breastfeeding,” says Megan Gill-Vander Wielen, who co-chairs the local Breastfeeding Coalition. “While the Ontario Human Rights Commission clearly states that women have the right to breastfeed in public spaces, many women fear offending others should they feed in public spaces,” adds Kari Kelsey, the other co-chairperson of the Breastfeeding Coalition. “This can be a barrier for women continuing to breastfeed for as long as they would like.”

LINDSAY –A private breastfeeding area for moms and their babies may not readily come to mind for people when they think about the Lindsay fair, but it is a reality at the event that takes place until Sept. 22 at the Lindsay Fairgrounds.

Nothing can ever take away or replace the love my heart holds for you Forever loved, never forgotten, always in my heart as strong as when you were here. Missed and loved by all. Love, your baby sister Casalee OXOX

Aries (March 21 of April 20) Do you remember the story of David and Goliath? David, just a boy, defeated the giant Goliath warrior against all odds. Aries, we urge you to remember this when things tend to overwhelm you. Nurture your own strengths and use them well! They may surprise you. Taurus (April 21 to May 21) Your plans are taking shape nicely, Taurus. Pleasant surprises are in store for you. All in all, your horoscope this week looks very promising. Lucky you! Gemini (May 22 to June 22) “If my films don’t show a profit, I know I’m doing something right.”: Woody Allen. If a famous star like him can put aside the urge to please everyone through his self-expression, so can you Gemini. Learn to please yourself! Don’t worry what people will think; do it for your own enjoyment. Experience the freedom! Cancer (June 23 to July 23) Money will play an important role in your decisions in the days ahead, Cancer. Keep a balanced outlook as well as a balanced cheque book! Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) Surprises await around every corner for you, Leo! Some aren’t the best, some are good, and some are wonderful! Separate the wheat from the chaff … and make hay while the sun shines! Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) Patience is a virtue, Virgo, and we think you may need all the patience you can muster in this phase for what lies ahead. Stay calm and think things through. Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) A glorious full harvest moon rose yesterday (Sept. 19), Libra, in time to greet your birthday phase. It’s a time for the farmers to reap their hard-earned harvests of plenty and to be thankful for the gifts of the earth. Time for you, too, Libra to be grateful for the bounties which surround you. Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) The beautiful colours of autumn are surrounding you, Scorpio, and bathing you in all their glory. It’s time to really connect nature and enjoy all it has to offer this time of year. Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Love may be waiting for you, dear Sag. You need to expand your ideas of where to find it. Search beyond the usual spots. It could be hiding or it could be right under your nose! Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Up, down. Up, down. Round and round. Your world is spinning like a top, Capricorn. One day you’re high as a kite, feeling like nothing can knock you down. Alas, the next day, your kite has tumbled to the ground! Work on getting balance in your life. Perhaps you need to slow down, ever so slightly. Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) It’s the “daddy of them all”! That’s right, the Bobcaygeon Fall Fair, Sept. 26 to 28. What? Never been, Aquarius? Say it isn’t true! You must treat yourself. It’s a great opportunity to meet your neighbours and participate in your community – just what you need right about now. Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) JOY. What does the word mean to you, Pisces? Do you welcome it into your life? Or do you turn it away because you don’t trust it will stay for long? Try to build some “positive power” into your life. It takes time, just like building physical strength. But it can be done!

It was a dream-come-true. For at least thirty years, I have wanted to host a “Roache Cousins' Picnic” in Nova Scotia. Finally this year I mustered up the courage to tackle it. In August I created a Facebook event and contacted as many first cousins as I could find. As soon as the word got out, cousins started signing up. In all, 39 people turned out that day. Not too shabby for a first attempt!The conversation was sweet, like a never-ending receiving line. Cousins who had never met each other shared laughs, stories, and hugs. We were also blessed to have our 80-year-old aunt and 99year-old uncle with us. We provided meat for the BBQ and asked each family to bring a salad or dessert. Those desserts would have made Martha Stewart's mouth water. When it was time to eat them, we made our way into the livingroom, where every surface was filled with something yummy. The white coconut cake with lemon curd filling was the most popular one of all. Are you drooling, too? My brothers and I chuckled as everyone squeezed into the room. All our lives Mom scolded, “Stop that running around; you're gonna end up in the cellar.” She would have been shocked to know that almost 40 people stood on the living room floor and not one ended up in the cellar! The last “Roache Picnic” was in 1931. I'm sure we won't wait another 82 years before we get together again.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Month

KAWARTHA LAKES - Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kawartha Lakes-Haliburton would like to remind everyone that September is Big Brothers Big Sisters Month across Canada. This month is a great opportunity for us to recognise all of the wonderful things that mentors bring to children’s lives. Their commitment has a huge impact on the community, helping children reach their full potential and making positive decisions that will affect their lives for years to come. These mentors volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kawartha Lakes-Haliburton through one of the programs that include the traditional community-based one-to-one program or the site-based in-school mentoring program. It is also the perfect month for people to step forward and become mentors through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kawartha Lakes-Haliburton if they have been considering making a difference in a child’s life. Volunteering as a mentor can take as little as one hour a week through the in-school mentoring program, something very easy to fit into a weekly schedule. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kawartha LakesHaliburton would like to thank all of the volunteers who have made the commitment to mentor a child; the volunteers are the ones that make the difference. There continues to be more than 50 children waiting for a mentor in The City of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County, so if you are interested in this kind of friendship call 705-324-6800 for more information on the application process.
