Off the top

In this edition of the Kawartha Promoter we have investigated the city’s new performance-based management system in greater detail. In enthusiastically promoting its new initiative, senior city staff touted its success in Erie County, New York. We have found out that the program has actually been cancelled there. New county comptroller Mark Poloncarz discarded it when he assumed office in 2012 citing the outgoing administration’s failure to prove its multi-million-dollar savings claims. However, his predecessor Chris Collins is credited with some 35 cases of service improvements, such as a quicker response to afterhours sewer complaint calls. In Tyler, Texas, we were told that since 2009, they have saved more than $4 million in addition to service improvements. Our city has gone on record to say it can save $1.5 million as well as become more efficient.

As a taxpayer, I hope they can achieve that goal. There are a few worrisome signs, however, including the fact that three of the nine senior staff chosen to lead the project have dropped out, presumably due to the demands. Some staff are also not happy that the original nine positions picked to take part in this project have not been filled, putting extra pressure on other staff. The city said it had 100 % buy-in from workers but that is not what we are hearing. Some workers remain fearful and others feel they are not being kept in the loop. Only time will tell if all employees will get on board and if the desired goal can be reached. I hope so, though it is questionable why the city must spend nearly $400,000 to do what many of us in the private sector have been doing for years – finding waste and cutting it on a regular basis. If you would like to hear more about Lean Six Sigma, city CAO Mark Fisher and Dempster will be at a Lindsay and District Chamber of Commerce-sponsored talk at the Lindsay Golf and Country Club on Nov. 6 between noon and 1 p.m.

The new members of the CHEST fund committee are: Don Reeve (one-year term), Wendy Hall (three years), Monique Craig (appointed for another two). In June, Don Johnson joined the committee.

Kawartha Lakes number 56

The City of Kawartha Lakes has ranked 56th out of 107 cities in a recent report. In a press release, the city said that was higher than Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. Some of the measures of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) Lance Sherk Communities in Bloom report include business growth, selfemployment numbers, life satisfaction, building permits and property tax rates. Director of development services Lance Sherk said it reflected growth in young entrepreneurs, new Canadians and home businesses in the city.

Small, Rural and Northern Municipal Infrastructure Fund

The Ontario Government has made $100 million available to help small, rural and northern municipalities address roads, bridges and other critical infrastructure. As of Oct. 1, eligible municipalities can apply for $71 million in funding for capital projects. The deadline is Nov 1. Council is eager to participate and take advantage of the largesse but the mayor, city clerk and staff need to get clarification on the terms and wording for eligibility prior to submitting an expression of interest.

Wind Turbines

On Oct. 1, Cavan Monaghan Township sent a request to the city seeking co-operation on opposing the Stoneboat Community Wind Farm project since it spans both municipalities. It also wants $500,000 to match its contribution to defray legal costs on behalf of citizens. While the letter was received only, with no action taken, council was explicit in not wanting wind farms of any form in the area.

1.5% capital budget increase

If your house is assessed at $200,000, you are looking at an average residential tax rate increase of $36 next year after the city passed a 1.5% increase in its capital budget Oct. 15. The city will now turn its attention to the operating budget in hopes of capping the overall budget increase at 2.5% Some of the items your money is being spent on include: $257,000 for a new community centre in Ward’s Park in Norland; $25,000 for a re-use centre at the Lindsay landfill; $75,000 to further shore up the inside of the Old Mill in Lindsay and $60,000 for structural repairs at the Old Gaol Museum in Lindsay. The city also managed to put $1.6 million back into reserves and it was revealed during budget deliberations that the city’s debt is now $39 million. Another $951,500 has been placed in unallocated funds.

New fire hall in Pontypool A move to select Mark V. Wilson Builder/ Contractor Co. Ltd. for the award to design and build a new fire hall in Pontypool initially ran into some difficulty with council. The cost of the project is for the total tender price of $1,128,142.28 (including HST). At first there was some discussion regarding the necessary size. One councillor wondered why council had previously dithered about erecting buildings for snow plows and wasn’t this the same thing? It was quickly pointed out by others that fire trucks had tanks of water to fight fires and if left out in below zero temperatures, the water would freeze. In the end staff were directed to negotiate the cost below $1 million.

City under magnifying glass

By Lisa Gervais

KAWARTHA LAKES - The City of Kawartha Lakes is continuing to train Black Belts and Green Belts in Lean Six Sigma and I can already hear readers scratching their heads. Stick with me, though, since the city is spending $362,000 of your money on this initiative with claims it will “identify the most efficient, value added way to provide government services.” The ‘black and green belts’ martial arts jargon is part of the Lean Six Sigma performance-based management system. The short history is it began in manufacturing: Lean at Toyota and Six Sigma at General Electric. It is becoming increasingly popular in North America with senior CKL staff having referred to its use in Erie County, NY. Let’s look at a couple of U.S. models: one good, one (Erie County) not so good. The City of Tyler, Texas began a system in 2009. A full-time Lean Sigma Master Black Belt was hired to train employees to reduce waste and variation in processes. A Green Belt has been trained in each department and several Black Belts have been certified. The Green and Black Belts work with employee project teams to improve city processes: saving both time and money. Assistant city manager Susan Guthrie told The Kawartha Promoter that to date, more than $4 million has been saved with more than 80 projects closed. The local council emphasizes it isn’t all about money, either. Their website touts “these programs empower city employees to find solutions, develop programs and enhance processes that result in higher-quality services and cost savings.” In Erie County, though, a political change has resulted in the program being cancelled with at least one municipal official publicly criticizing it. Director of policy and communications Mark Cornell told the Kawartha Promoter the previous administration “never once provided any proven, quantifiable Six Sigma savings data that can be validated (in the county’s recordkeeping software) or county budget documents. The seeming inability or unwillingness to prove the dramatic multi-million dollar savings claims raised fundamental questions about the reality of the Six Sigma program and whether it is actually generating savings, process improvements, or some other outcome.” Back to the city, and Mary-Anne Dempster,

who has been appointed director of initiative management, said the city expects to save $1.5 million, based on a formula of saving $5 for every $1 spent on the program. But, she has also gone on record to say it isn’t all about money, but improving services as well. So, senior staff are being trained as Black Belts. What does that mean? After 14 days of training, they are responsible for a project that is corporate in scope and is cross-departmental. What does that mean? Brenda Stonehouse, for example, is in communications but is being tasked with looking at how the city manages its fleet of vehicles. She’ll work with a team there to come up with a result in four months’ time. The Green Belts (about 45 city managers) will undergo three days of training, are responsible for a project that is departmental in scopeand have 60 days to produce a result. There are also Green Belts, who help make up the teams. So, what else do we need to know? Some staff have been grumbling about a failure to backfill the positions that have been seconded to Black Belt status. The Kawartha Promoter has learned that three of the nine so-called Black Belts are no longer with the program. Workers complained that the internal chat at City Hall was shut down temporarily at the outset of the program. Some are scared about what Lean Six Sigma means. Dempster maintains, though, that it’s about measuring the process’ performance, not employees’ performance. The city says “everyone is a stakeholder.”

Wind vs Buddhists

OMEMEE - MPP Laurie Scott used question period recently to raise the issue of a proposed wind farm adjacent to the Buddhist Association of Canada’s Cham Shan Temple just outside of Omemee. Almost 20 years ago, she said the association bought picturesque land for an eventual retreat that could bring millions of dollars into the Kawartha Lakes and Peterborough area. In question period, she questioned why the Liberal government is allowing a wind project to potentially destroy a legitimate Buddhist retreat. Construction has begun on part of the $40 million project. “I ask the premier again if she will put an end

Canal petition handed over

BOBCAYGEON - Boaters, representatives of the Voices of the Trent, cottage associations and members of the business community joined Union of Canadian Transportation Employees (UCTE) representatives Oct. 19 aboard the Kawartha Spirit to officially hand-over the ‘restore hours and services’ petition to MP Dan Harris. Local union representative Ralf Bucherer said the nearly 4000 signatures are only a fraction of the displeasure, with 1200 complaints, letters to Park Canada’s CEO and the minister of the environment, and plenty of social media chatter. Harris spoke of the important role, and historic significance, canals have for communities along the waterway. In a press release, UCTE said the petition campaign may be over but supporters said the fight is far from over during an ‘open mic’ session. They said they had to keep up the pressure during the off-season to ensure there will be a clear message about hours and services in place well ahead of the 2014 season. National president Christine Collins UCTE has submitted a policy paper to Parks Canada calling for the creation of a SOA (Special Operating Agency) for canals under Transport Canada. It would allow for greater input by, but also the participation of, stakeholders and special interest groups. Unlike local MP Barry Devolin’s private member’s bill, Collins said the SOA proposed by UCTE would include all canals (Trent- Severn Waterway, Rideau Canal and Chambly Canal). One idea in the private member’s bill, charging registered boats a fee for the usage of the waters maintained by the canals, seemed to resonate well with boaters, UCTE said. Supporters also expressed safety concerns at lock stations, including staff speeding from lock station to lock station across public roads, skipping lunches and breaks in order to keep up with boats.

of business cards and event participation. One of the AGM’s really-good-news disclosures will be the report by directors Tom Hunt and Rosa Sharpe on the Canada-U.S. Walleye Tournament. According to details at the Oct.15 board of directors meeting by Tom, the 2013 tournament continued the event’s on-going growth in size and importance to the sport’s industry and participants. Next year’s event will be bigger and better, Tom said, with the number of two-person teams increasing from 125 to 135, including five spots for teams that have not previously participated and five spots set aside for our American friends. It recently took volunteers in the chamber office only a few hours to complete the emailed-in registration process. As for the event itself, it has the recreational fishing world abuzz, with a major supplier corporation newly involved. The cash and in-kind purse, led by the $10,000-$5,000-$3,000 top prizes, is expected to be up to $80,000 in 2014. Additionally, it has become a major marketing tool, with vendors urged to come on board to secure space at the trade show in the Bobcaygeon Arena, with information available at Aside from the interest and excitement the tournament brings to our community, Tom estimates that Bobcaygeon and area businesses will financially benefit to the tune of at least $170,000 in revenues. -Submitted by secretary Bob Hughes

Don Payne visits the Holten Cemetery in Holland

A Second World War veteran remembers

As the years go by, memories strangely seem to become more vivid – the good times and the bad. I remember quite well four close friends of mine whose aim it was to aid in the liberation of Holland and then return home to family and friends. We went through skirmishes and battles and some really tough times, unfortunately only one of us survived. The others have gone to their eternal rest. I sadly recall John Knight, a fellow guardsman and friend, a Prairie boy, who was killed by a sniper as we stood talking just near the end of the war. His memory stone in Holten Cemetery reads: J.D. Knight, Grenadier Guards with this Biblical inscription “Neither count I my life dear unto myself” Acts 20:24. It is seemingly minor incidents that persist in my memory . . . • The guard duty at night, which was so dark that the two-hour shifts seemed forever and shadows became real. I recall one night on watch with a Bren gun at the ready. I heard a rumbling noise to

my right, a stray pig came grunting up the bank. Little did he know how close he was to becoming pork stew. • The sight of a burning barn, with horses neighing in fright, wanting to be let out, troubled me a lot. • Seeing milking cows following our tanks, imploring to be attended to – so sad. • The memory of little boys running along beside the tanks as we travelled through a village, asking for food to take home to mom or dad. How pleased we were to be able to throw out some cans of emergency rations from the turret of the tank. I wonder where those boys are today? Certainly in their early 70s. • Coming upon a young mother, hiding in fear of being found by the enemy, clutching her little child with determination and dread. I recall the joy in her face to find we were not Nazis but liberators. I wonder if that child (now grown up) can remember that day. • And, lastly, I remember our padre Capt. A.E. McCreery, a fine gentleman, bringing courage, faith, hope and understanding to many a man. Less than 12 hours before hostilities ceased in our region, Capt. McCreery and Lt. N.A. Goldie drove out on a mercy mission to locate a reported wounded German soldier. They are recorded as the last Grenadiers to be killed in action. It was May 5, 1945, and now they lie in Holten Cemetery in Holland. We will remember them. Submitted by Don C. Payne, wireless operator, B119710, Canadian Grenadier Guards, Tank Regiment (Fenelon Falls, ON).

Remembering our troops past and present. We will never forget the sacrifices! Pat Warren Councillor Ward 13

Remembrance Day poem

a parade at 10:30 a.m. and a service at the Cenotaph at 11 a.m.

Lest we forget How does one relate to these very important words Are we remembering only at the time the bugle is heard. Slowly we are losing those - who took their place in war time What happens to their legacy when the bells no longer chime.

• LINDSAY: On Nov.11, a parade will leave the Legion at 10 a.m. and arrive at the Cenotaph in time for the 10:15 a.m. service.

By Sheila M. Haynes

Lest we forget Will the generations remember what took place before their birth Will they understand how their fight for freedom was hell on Earth. To know what our soldiers suffered, we cannot imagine their plight The very thoughts they must have had as the day became the night Lest we forget There were men who were ready and those who were oh so young Those who had training and many who had none. We raise the flag to salute the ones who gave their lives for all And we honour the men and women who came home believing in the call. Lest we forget How will generations who follow preserve those who fought for us Our children, our grandchildren they need to know the meaning - trust That as our freedom continues we know their deaths were not in vain Poppies tell the tale, each year in remembrance, a must to protect our domain. Lest we forget Our country honors those who have fallen over the years At cenotaphs across our lands, we fight back all our tears As poems like In Flanders Fields are read and songs are sung We surely will never forget those who have fought so we could belong.

believe in the present and, yes, even the future. You can make something new happen every day!

Aries (March 21 to April 20) There’s a quietness to the November air, with a trace of expectancy of the more jovial things to come. It’s like a lull in the land’s activity. Time, also, for you Aries, to relax, appreciate the common things and await the coming of the holidays.

Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Carly Jepson, Bryan Adams, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young – Wow! All these Canadian super singers share your zodiac sign, Scorpio! Are you sure you don’t have a hidden musical talent, waiting to blast off any moment? You never know!

Taurus (April 21 to May 21) Taurus, your stable character and loyalty to friends and loved ones make you an ideal partner! While usually slow to anger, your temper can explode if provoked – try to keep it in check during this phase.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Now is definitely the time to do a mental health check, Sag. Taking care of your feelings is just as important as taking care of your physical needs. It’s also important to those you love and who must live with you day to day. Please think of them, too!

Gemini (May 22 to June 22) Your social life is on a real roll, Gemini. Enjoy these moments, but don’t get too carried away. Stay grounded! Cancer (June 23 to July 23) Career-wise, Cancer, you have a number of options. Since you are very good at organizing, you might prefer a role in public affairs. Then again, you also love looking after and caring for others – so nursing or some such thing might be a possibility. Yet again, with your wide variety of interests and different hobbies, you could be involved in literature or the arts. Many doors are open to you. Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) We think it’s time you stood still for a moment and reassessed your goals, dear Leo. Try not to look too far ahead but make sure you have a definite plan for the near future. Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) “I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.”: Mahatma Gandhi. Yes, Virgo, if you can get along with people and help others get along with each other, you will be well-rewarded with the respect and deference of everyone. Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) Stop dwelling on the regrets of the past – the lost chances, the errors – and start to


Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) It’s time to invite some humour into your life, Aquarius. It helps to laugh at situations, and even at yourself sometimes. It makes the world a brighter and better place. Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) While you may feel it is time to make drastic changes in your love life, Pisces, we urge you to use some restraint. Please think this through and don’t give up just yet.

Festival of Trees

Two-hundred appears to be the magic number this year as Kawartha Settlers’ Village celebrates the 16th annual Festival of Trees Nov. 14-17. Board president Al Ingram says more than 200 sponsor-donated items will be on display this year and that the four-day event could not happen without the generous support of some 200 volunteers. The Festival of Trees is the biggest fundraiser for the Village (with just about every item on display for sale) but residents of Bobcaygeon and the entire City of Kawartha Lakes have come to view it as their own unique pre-Christmas event. It is the only Festival of Trees in the region and is attracting more and more people from afar. Organizers expect up to 35,000 people this year. Leader Lynn Webb and her elves have been busily preparing the spectacle, which features standing and wall trees, wreaths and garlands. Other area businesses and individuals have donated gift certificates. As always, the memorial tree will be there for people to leave a gift in memory of a loved one and auction proceeds this year will go to the Bobcaygeon Kinette Club. Some event highlights include: Santa’s Secret Shoppe, the Children’s Workshop, Toyland, plus much more. Tickets are on sale for the festival roast beef dinner on Friday, Nov. 15 at the Bobcaygeon Lawn Bowling Club, with two sittings at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 (does not include festival admission) and can be purchased at My Favourite Things, Monk Funeral Services, and at KSV office.

100% participation from students and staff. The school’s ‘We Team’ designed 15 organized, fun-filled activities which they called Ridgewood’s Amazing Race. The Gr. 7 and 8’s were leaders of the 15 teams that staff helped organize from Kindergarten to Gr. 8. The school said “It was really wonderful to see the older students be positive role models with the younger kids and natural leaders. We had a lot of laughs, a lot of rosy cheeks and a great afternoon of exercise and fun.”

Take me outside

COBOCONK - Take Me Outside Day was started three years ago by Colin Harris who wanted to create dialogue about the importance of outdoor education and to extend the learning environment beyond four walls and a desk. Since then, many schools dedicate a minimum of one hour outside on the TMO date in October. On Oct. 23, Ridgewood Public School decided to join Mr. Harris’s initiative along with approximately 450 schools from across Canada as well as schools from around the world.

Scarecrow festival “huge” success

FENELON FALLS – Volunteer organizers of Harvest Happenings in Fenelon Falls were so pleased with the response to this year’s inaugural scarecrow festival that they want to continue it for years to come. They said the event was met by “huge” business, sponsor and community involvement. The winner was “Duck Dynasty” by Grr8 Finds Market. Second place went to “Edward Scissorhands” by Trish’s Hair Design. Organizers wanted to thank runners-up that included everything from a Van Gogh scarecrow to a scarecrow getting a manicure/ pedicure and haunted realtor scarecrows. There was a scarecrow dressed up as a turkey and a live scarecrow mannequin. Overall, they said Harvest Happenings was a phenomenal success, in which so many people attended that they ran out of pumpkins and popcorn. Special thanks to MJ Saunby for her popcorn-making prowess. In addition, the harvest tarts and treats

Hardware store helps plant trees

COBOCONK - Shields Home Hardware, in conjunction with Tree Canada, has provided Kirkfield, Coboconk and Norland with some new trees recently. Marie South of Shield Home Hardware said they planted a sugar maple at the Catholic school in Kirkfield, six trees at Ward Park in Norland (three white pines and three silver maples) and six trees in Coboconk (one at the CIBC, two tamarac at the cemetery and three at the Lions Park). Marie said they had the help of Deb Hewitt at St. John’s Kirkfield Elementary School, Dianne Compton and Bill Barber of the Coboconk Horticultural Society and Murray Walker of the Norland Horticultural Society. Rockwood Forest Nurseries supplied the trees and also provided delivery free of charge. Several others lent a hand to help as well.

KAWARTHA LAKES Kawartha Protect Our Water (KPOW) recently awarded the Peter Cziraky Environmental Award for 2013 to Brian Wilson. The award honours the memory and accomplishments of the former Bobcaygeon councillor and business owner. Wilson is a lifetime city resident and sixth generation owner and operator of a farm on Wilson Rd. across from the Lindsay/Ops landfill. In a press release, KPOW said he has been an opponent of the landfill since its inception in 1980, and in 1994 led a group of citizens in challenging its expansion and bringing it before the Environmental Assessment Board. In 1999 through 2000, the Conservative Government overturned the board’s ruling to close the landfill. Wilson, with the aid of the Toronto Star, was able to bring the ruling to the public’s attention. This led to a town hall meeting in Bobcaygeon in 2000 ,which eventually led to the formation of KPOW. Wilson is credited with leaking documents to KPOW regarding PCB contamination in Sinister Creek and “the inaction of government. This was an environmental disaster and a public health issue.” Wilson was a member and, for a time, chair of the Public Review Committee which oversees the landfill until 2010 when he was removed by the city due to an ongoing lawsuit. KPOW said “he remains an active participant in the committee’s proceedings and is the public’s eyes and ears on activities taking place at the landfill.” Submitted by KPOW’s Sharon King PHOTO: Brian Wilson holds his Peter Cziraky Environmental Award for 2013.

Globus wants scripts

BOBCAYGEON - Do you have a play that you’d like to see produced by a professional company or have a script that you think might be perfect for Globus Theatre? If so, they want to hear from you. In a press release, the local professional theatre said that thanks to the involvement of playwright-in-residence Robert Tsonos, they are currently able to accept new play submissions from Kawartha area playwrights. Scripts should be full-length (90 minutes+) suitable for small casts (one to five actors) and can encompass any genre. Artistic director Sarah Quick said: “Over the last decade we have produced many Canadian plays. Last season we produced three and we are now looking for more to program into next season and beyond. We love to delve into new works and are interested to see what writing talent is around locally.” Tsonos will also be on hand to read local scripts that are in their fledgling stages. “If you have ideas but aren’t sure how to execute them or you need advice on plot, characters, staging limitations, etc. then Globus is here to help,” he said. Scripts can be sent to or 2300 Pigeon Lake Rd., 
Bobcaygeon, ON K0M 1A0. You can also call 705-738-2037 or 1-800304-7897 or check out

Health & Wellness Health and wellness showcase

LINDSAY - Health and wellness providers from Kawartha Lakes and surrounding areas will come together later this month to offer a showcase of products and services for addressing body, mind, and soul – with proceeds being donated to Hospice Kawartha Lakes. Living Well-Being is taking place Saturday, Nov. 23 at the Lindsay Recreation Complex Community Room from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Organizer Nancy Gosse, of Inceptional Soul Services, said the event is all about making choices to live well and develop a greater sense of well-being. She said Hospice Kawartha Lakes was chosen as the charity because of the integrity with which it offers support to enhance the quality of life for individuals and families faced with life-threatening illness and grief. “We often overlook the power in our daily choices to live well. It’s only when we are faced with illness and death that we start to realize the importance of choosing to live well every day,” Gosse said. Vendors include a range of traditional and nontraditional services such as Reiki Energy Healing, Crystal Therapy, Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, Nutritional Supplements, Weight Loss products, SelfCare and lifestyle products. Entry is $5.

If you are interested in being a vendor, volunteering to help out on the day (high school hours rewarded) or for more information contact Nancy Gosse: nancy@ or phone 705-928-3282. Pictured in Hospice’s Labyrinth Garden are, L-R: Gosse, Mary Scott; Hospice KL office coordinator; Carolyn Parks; Hospice KL palliative coordinator and Jill Sadler; Hospice KL director of services.

Community Care

Community Care staff who serve the North Kawartha region of the city recently reflected on the agency’s considerable growth and expansion. A few years ago, Community Care’s services were all under the Community Support Services umbrella - programs that the agency built its reputation on since the mid1980s, such as Meals on Wheels, transportation, Adult Day programs, Friendly Visitors and Diners Club, to name a few. Those services remain as vital and in demand as ever, but the agency has added three more pillars, or service divisions, to the list of ways that it supports local residents. The Community Health Centre opened

in 2009, Hospice Kawartha Lakes amalgamated with Community Care in 2011, and the agency opened a Low-Income Dental Clinic two years ago. The growth reflects the need for the agency’s services, but it also brings challenges in terms of keeping up with demand. The agency has always relied upon the important contributions and time given by a small army of volunteers (almost 800 caring people each year). Our volunteers are extremely dedicated and loyal in their support of Community Care, but with such a large number, there is inevitably some turnover. The agency needs to constantly be recruiting and attracting more volunteers in order to continue to help local residents. It doesn’t take a lot of time to volunteer with Community Care, but it makes a great difference for the agency and the people who receive the support. Anyone with an interest in getting involved, in getting to know people in the community, or in helping themselves as well as others is encouraged to contact Volunteer Services Co-ordinator Wendy Bruckert at 705-324-7323 to discuss the many options available.

Released on Sept. 26, Real Dirt: An Ex-industrial Farmer’s Guide to Sustainable Eating is a groundbreaking book for any reader interested in learning more about where food comes from, Fleming College said in a press release. Stoddart, who teaches at Frost Campus in Lindsay, shares years of experience and knowledge in his quirky dissection of agriculture and what we eat. He skillfully educates eaters about how they can individually participate in and demand sustainable agriculture. Real Dirt challenges consumers to choose a better future for food production.

He has since converted the farm to certified organic, and then to a new system he feels will

Choristers prepare for Christmas

BOBCAYGEON - The Bobcaygeon Choristers are back in practice after a few months of laying low due to the lack of a director and an accompanist. Under Bob Plummer of Bobcaygeon, the group is now preparing for its upcoming Christmas season. Bob has a strong musical background. He has conducted mass choirs for large church gatherings, church choirs and has sung in many musical venues. He has a strong connection to Salvation Army choirs and bands. His experience has been with volunteer and non-audition groups and loves to work with people who enjoy singing, the Choristers said. The Choristers are being accompanied by Vivian Hetherington ARCT, from Kinmount and the organist for the Kinmount Baptist Church. She plays for community events in and around Kinmount and in the past has played in concert bands, swing bands and in a combo. She has taught piano for the past 46 years and is known to have a white grand piano in her living room. The Choristers are always looking for new members in all sections but especially in “The Back Row,” which is comprised of tenors and basses. If you are interested, attend practice any Tuesday night at the Legion at 7 p.m. or contact Barb Dunleavy at 705-738-5746.
