PAPER CUTS Ripple Effect

Sometimes we don’t like to face thing so, we don’t. If the truth is unpleasant, we may not listen. When we don’t want to bother or get involved, we turn our heads. We fill our lives and time and space with busyness. And we become adept at justifying our actions. Would you say we’re all guilty of it to one degree or another? In Social Psychology, this avoidance is a form of the Bystander Effect. Visualize a person just standing by. Just watching. That’s what it is. It’s noted that the syndrome ranges from looking, to not looking, listening, to not listening—and yet it is all, in truth, passive participation. It reveals itself in many forms, all of which support acts by others—acts such as ignoring, shunning or ridiculing, even possessing the knowledge of any kind of bullying. Still with me? Bystander behaviour often triggers a ripple effect. The victim experiences hurt feelings, isolation or loneliness, bruised self-image, fear, despair or unthinkable physical injury. There’s that continuum again. It can result in devastating consequences, as we’ve witnessed with

Cover Photo: Brent A Armstrong. Art of Clay Sculpture Studio

the Amanda Todd suicide. That is a horrible and extreme case of too little too late. The subsequent fallout and public outcry now is intended to ignite change. The key word here is intended. We hope it does. We all have to stick with it, though. Not forget. Not look away. Fact: There are human beings who actually do slip through the cracks. Just because nobody cares quite enough to look, to hear, to act. My question is this: How and why does one decide where the cutoff point is? What’s that invisible line we draw between “How can I help?” and “You’re on your own”? Did you know that there are bystander intervention programs? Formal training to teach people how to reach out, speak up, show up, advocate, intervene, acknowledge, save a life. Really? Most people have good intentions. When we follow through on good intentions, we’ve made the choice to act. Action begins with a decision. Each of us, at any moment, can start the ripple moving in a positive direction. Today I received an email from someone who referred to her work as: “Not perfect, but it came from the heart.” See, to me, that just makes sense.

OPEN LETTER TO DEB MATTHEWS,

Health Minister of Ontario It has come to our attention that as of January 1, 2013, the Kawartha North Family Health Team, here in Bobcaygeon, will no longer be funded to take blood samples. Patients will be sent to Fenelon Falls or Lindsay. Noteworthy is the fact that both of Bobcaygeon’s nursing homes, Pinecrest and Case Manor residents will still continue to enjoy local service. It begs the question, what is the difference between covering the cost for blood samples in Bobcaygeon or in Fenelon Falls or Lindsay? This change does not sit well with our local Doctors or the majority of their patients who are quite upset over this. Let me elaborate: Our local patients, served by the Kawartha North Family Health Team, would be in excess of 5,000 year-round residents. Since the community is populated by a large number of Retirees, local services are a MUST, especially when blood samples are such an integral part of diagnosis! Many of these patients rely on friends to get them to the Clinic and diabetics and others that should ‘fast’ before blood is taken are therefore subject to

extreme health risks. It is just not right to make all of us have to drive to Fenelon Falls or Lindsay to fill up their waiting rooms with patients waiting for blood to be taken. Our winters will certainly put an extra strain on this plan for many of us, as well. The Ontario Health Ministry, headed by Deb Matthews, has already cut certain O.H.I.P. benefits with total disregard for the welfare of Residents and Doctors. Waiting periods for C-scan and M.R.I. testing are a disgrace. (My wife had to wait for over four months for an M.R.I on her spine while in excessive pain and limited mobility the whole time.) Waiting periods for many surgeries can be up to 2 years! Almost all of our medicines have been disqualified and changed to Generic, which is always another surprise at the Drug Store. It is time to stop ruining our O.H.I.P. plan and concentrate on correcting and improving some of these previous mistakes before it is too late for you. AN ELECTION IS COMING… Please, do not stop funding our Kawartha North Health Team Doctors from being able to take blood samples locally. Do what is right for our community and, please, continue this service. Yours truly,

Letter to the Editor

There are developments in the making that will impact Bobcaygeon for many years to come. You have to be concerned now! As most of your readers are aware there is a 400+ acre quarry and concrete plant proposed by Dewdney Mountain Farms Ltd, which is about 15 minutes from Bobcaygeon. It is estimated to be in operation for 25 – 30 years. It has been estimated that there will be 61 trucks per hour (one per minute, 30,000 plus per year) leaving or entering the quarry. Did you know that an estimated 80% of the large trucks carrying this aggregate (crushed stone, dimensional stone etc.) would travel through Bobcaygeon and on to the GTA? All of this additional traffic is in addition to

present quarry traffic and ignores future traffic from other new quarries. In addition to major traffic concerns, there are issues surrounding the quarry related to water quality impact, environmental impacts, noise levels and highway maintenance costs which will not be covered by the trivial fees charged to quarry owners. You the taxpayer will pay. All reports on this proposed quarry can be read by going to: www.galwaycavendishharvey.ca/, then go to Township Council, then to Agenda Package/ Minutes/Highlights North Pigeon Lake Ratepayers Association members are so concerned that a separate committee has been established to monitor developments and research ways that quarries can be developed while minimizing the negative impacts. Our committee has mapped over 40 quarries and pits in GCH. These are not running at anywhere near full capacity so why the need for another? This one quarry is the tipping point as the accumulation of many already in existence or planned for in the future is now overwhelming. GCH has not made a decision on the requested re-zoning of this proposed quarry yet. Our local government needs to have a management plan in place before they approve any more applications, including this one. Our area is now designated as the prime area for development of quarries and we will soon be known as the aggregate capital of Ontario, which is not conducive to our image as a preferred tourist and retiree destination. Please make your comments known to both governments, local and provincial. This affects everyone. Sincerely, Janet Klein, On behalf of the North Pigeon Lake Ratepayers Association. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.”—Margaret Mead.


City Hall

By Gord Killen

Hickory Beach

A presentation to the Mayor and Council was made by Mr. Rene Levigne on behalf of the resident’s petition regarding the use or lack thereof of the beachfront at the end of Hickory Beach Road. Prior to amalgamation, the Township of Verulam provided some maintenance to the beach area for the residents of Hickory Beach. Since amalgamation there has been little or no maintenance done to the beach. The objective of the petition and presentation was to seek assistance from the City to restore Hickory Beach to a safe and quality beach as it used to be. Currently the area has been used to launch boats and, as a result, the vehicles tear loose the fragile roadway. There have been several meetings at the beach this season with the residents of Hickory Beach to discuss what might be done to make this a safe swimming area for the local residents. On several occasions, Brian Junkin and several senior COKL staff were present. After some discussion the Mayor advised Mr. Levigne that the City had a 50/50 program in place and would that be of some interest to the committee. There seemed to be a positive reaction and as a result Council voted to receive the 150-signature petition and requested Staff to look into the matter and make a recommendation to Council by the end of November.

Debentures

Definition of Debenture: Unsecured debt backed only by the integrity of the borrower, not by collateral, and documented by an agreement called an indenture. Treasury is recommending that the 2012 capital project debenture be provided by Infrastructure Ontario because they have provided the best interest rates and terms than that offered by Royal Bank of Canada. However, the process to borrow with Infrastructure Ontario involves additional steps. By law, second debenture is required once the application has been approved. That is scheduled for the November 13th, 2012 council meeting. Presently the rates are 2.63% for a ten (10) year term and 3.41% for twenty (20) years. Councillor Macklem suggested that the issue be reviewed by the Budget Advisory Committee on Monday October 15th. Council agreed and will hold a special Council meeting on October 16th to make a decision on this matter.

Solar Power installations on City Buildings

Staff suggests that the City may have a number of suitable roof spaces for consideration of the new FIT program and that the City could leverage this roof space into a guaranteed source of income without cost of installation or downside financial risk to the municipality. Under this proposal the initial cost of the installation would be borne by the designated solar panel company and the City would receive a percentage of the proceeds of the sale of electricity to the Province. While Council generally agreed with the idea there was concern expressed regarding the current condition of some of the roofs within the City buildings. If certain roofs were outfitted with solar panels and then at a later date the roof needed repairs who would bear the cost? Council will review the idea at a later date when there has been some clarification.

Water and Wastewater

Looks like our twenty-one (21) drinking water systems and our six (6) waste water systems may be going through a review regarding their overall efficiency. In a staff report delivered to Council it appears that there may be some opportunity to make a business case through the geographical clustering of similar water and wastewater systems. The new contract(s), when negotiated, will attempt to achieve these efficiencies. Council approved the recommendation.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) You are well aware you have nothing to be ashamed about, so hold your head up high and don’t listen to any negative whispers swirling around, dear Aries. Rumours and gossip have no place in your life right now.

Gemini (May 22 to June 22) Coping with stress depends not just on your inner resources, but with those you choose to help you along the way. Family and friends are all there for you. But, sometimes the stranger we don’t know can also help us out – especially if you make the first move, Gemini. Don’t be afraid to be the first to say something because you never know how much the answer may mean to you.

Taurus (April 21 to May 21) “If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favourable.” As you may have figured out by now, Taurus, you always need a plan! Big or small, lots of details or just traces of ideas – you will need something to guide you on your way. Be prepared.

Cancer (June 23 to July 23) It’s Harvest Time, Cancer. Time to harvest the rewards of all your hard work, during the last months. We know you’ve sacrificed, and now it’s time to sit back and relax a bit. Kick off those shoes and put up those feet. You deserve it!

Just remember to make way for the lighter joys of life, as well. Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) It’s time to wish upon a falling star, Virgo! The Orionid Meteor Shower, Oct. 20-21, is the perfect opportunity to glimpse a striking display of nature, and maybe even make a whimsical wish come true. Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) “Just because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do, doesn’t mean it’s useless,” –Thomas Edison Mr. Edison knew what he was talking about, of course. You can take your cue from him now, Libra, and stop worrying about “the way things should be”. Instead, look for what could be.

Love often unfolds by the heat of the hearth. Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) As a combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors, purple is believed to be the ideal colour – and as your zodiac colour, Sag, it is certainly ideal for you. It is the colour of people seeking spiritual fulfillment, and it is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. It’s also the colour most favoured by artists. So go ahead – smother yourself in purple! Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Keep looking ahead, Capricorn, never back on the days gone by. Keep marching forward, one step at a time, one day at a time. You will arrive at your destination, and the journey will have been worth it! We (not to mention all your friends and family) are rooting for you! Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Ooh-la-la, as the French say! Your social life, Aquarius, is about to take a huge swing up, up, up. All we can say is enjoy the ride! Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) There will be a beautiful full moon on Oct. 29, just in time for Hallowe’en. It’s known as the Full Beaver Moon, the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation is that it is a time that beavers are actively preparing for winter – something we suggest you might want to consider, Pisces. Plan ahead and the days to come won’t be so bleak!

CITY OF KAWARTHA LAKES …Interview with the Chief Administrative Officer

By Gord Killen

It has become apparent to me that while the Mayor and the Councillors deliberate how to govern and hopefully improve how the City moves forward to the future, the staff and employees of the City are the ones who make things happen—for better or for worse. The Mayor and Council are here from one election to the next. If they run again they may be reelected for another term. Not so for the staff and the employees. They are here for as long as they are being productive and, I trust, meeting their objectives. Therefore, now that we have a new CAO, I would find out what he thinks of the idea. The following is my interview with Mark Fisher. Questions for the Chief Administrative Officer Promoter: As I am sure you are aware, you are the administrative head of CKL’s largest workforce, over 1200 people. How are you managing so far? Mark: Very well I believe. In the time that I have been here I believe we have a truly dedicated workforce. Promoter: What impact can you have in assisting the Mayor and Council? Mark: Let me put it this way. The Mayor and Council determine the destination and I and my staff manage the trip. Promoter: I am sure you are aware of Strategic Planning. Are you considering doing a SWOT Analysis on the current position of the City? Would you include possible solutions and procedures to improve efficiency with regards to financial status and long term planning? Mark: Yes, of course I am very familiar with the concept and have used it from time to time. I don’t feel that it is necessary as one of the things that I was greatly impressed with when I arrived here is the depth of talent that we have working diligently for the city. We all do different work and yet we work together. There is an effective Performance Management System in place and everyone,

including myself, will be rated against what I call the ‘Balanced Score Card’. It is what they used to call ‘Management by Objectives’. Promoter: Now that you have been here for a month or so, how do you feel you are settling in? Mark: On the work front very well, I believe. I want to emphasize on how pleased I am with the people we have. They have such a great attitude and we have, I believe, an enormous pool of talent. On a personal level, I am looking forward to my wife joining me as soon as our house in Fredericton gets sold. We are like most families, our biggest investment is our house and in order to really buy here we have to sell there. Promoter: Do you have a Vision for the City of Kawartha Lakes? Mark: I believe very strongly that the Kawartha Lakes are ready to develop quite dramatically. We have to become a centre of excellence. As an example, we are renowned in the area of water. We are becoming known, along with Fleming College, as leading the way in this regard. Promoter: What do you feel will be your biggest challenge? Mark: What I would like to see is a database outlining the incredible skills and attributes of all our people. I believe that we can solve any problem that we may be faced with. At that point it was time for his next appointment and my time with Mr. Mark Fisher was at an end. There is no question he can talk the talk and I look forward to seeing him walk the walk.

decision to relocate to Bobcaygeon from their home in Glencoe, Ontario. The second is their new house, now under construction. And, of course, there’s the reason for the big excitement and talk around town: Foodland Bobcaygeon. He says, “My wife and I had a dream, never expecting it to happen. Then Sobey’s offered us an opportunity we could not say no to. We had asked for a cottage country location, never thinking this particular location would come up.” Bobcaygeon, he says, is the crown jewel of the Kawarthas. “Sobey’s sees a big future for this community in long-term growth, just as we do. It’s important for us to support and be involved with our new community.” He adds that while it does take time, it’s important to him that he learns the names of his customers. “We’re here to take care of the people in our community with a personal touch,” he says. “We are small-town people with a sense of old-fashioned service.” And what about summer when tourist season peaks? “We’ll be here,” he says. If he can’t get to know everyone, he can at least say hello. “I’m known for being the first one in and the last to leave.” The store is currently undergoing renovation. It’s a little disorganized right now but spirits are good and improvements are already evident. “My philosophy about this business is, to be successful, it requires a clean store, competitive prices, and get to know your customers. It isn’t the size of the store.” Among the changes will be the addition of state of the art equipment, including a walk-around deli island to showcase what Foodland offers. “This store will compete with any big urban centre store—on a smaller scale, of course.” Foodland’s Grand Re-Opening is targeted for some time between mid-December and early January. That gives Brian and Mary Peoples a chance to settle in—and learn a great many names.

Dear Mom, It’s hard to realize 9 years have passed since you were taken from my life and time has dulled the sharp edge of grief, but it still seems like yesterday to me since I lost you. I think of you everyday, but that is nothing new! I remember you always, my cherished memories never fade and are a steadfast and soothing balm to my heart. You were the best mom a girl could ever have. I love you dearly and wish with all my heart that you were still here and we had not had to part.

Your loving daughter, Lauren

Dear Wife, Though your smile and gentle ways are gone forever and I cannot hold you close, still I have all my memories of you and our life together that help keep you close and ease the pain.

Paul and Desiree Clark Serve You With A Smile

Meet the owners of Kawartha Lakes Outdoors. When it comes to hunting and fishing, Paul and Desiree Clark have an unmatched wealth of knowledge for the industry. The story begins three years ago, when Paul opened a small outdoors store behind MacDoo’s restaurant. His efforts resulted in the creation of a strong business with the focus primarily on fishing and archery. Just after his first year in business, Paul and Desiree met at a fishing and hunting show in Toronto. Must have been fate—they immediately joined forces and together, grew Kawartha Lakes Outdoors into the business it is today. Since Desiree possesses a greater passion for hunting than she does for fishing, the couple

agreed the hunting side of Kawartha Lakes Outdoors needed to be expanded to best serve the customers who frequent their store. They chose to move the business to a highway location where it is easy for hunters and fisherman to access from any direction. The business continued to grow at a rapid pace. After two years they teamed up with another partner and purchased 21 Taylor Street, now the permanent home of Kawartha Lakes Outdoors. The current location features mounted wildlife displays, including the Wild Turkey World Slam. Desiree says there are times when customers come in to purchase items for friends or family members but aren’t certain about what the items should be. That’s where the gift certificates are just the ticket.

Kawartha Lakes Outdoors is one of the area’s prime stops for avid outdoorsmen.

KAWARTHA SETTLERS’ VILLAGE Notes from the Manager

The Ghosts, goblins, scary nurses and haunted doctors have been flying around the village for a few days now. We’re getting ready for our Haunted Hallowe’en Event, Oct. 20, 6:30 – 9:30. We’re celebrating early this year! It will be a very scary evening! If you’re a young person, we even have a special Pirates Cove for you to visit, as well as the Store. The bats will be in the Wray House and in the Wicker Man parade. Come out for a howling good time. If you see Lyn Webb around the Village, please be sure to give her a pat on the back, (gently!) She is our Volunteer of the Week. Lyn helps us year ‘round with our parade float, she volunteers at every event, she chairs the decorating team and designs our trees, wreaths and garlands beautifully to make Festival of Trees the spectacular event it has become. Thank you Lyn—you always go beyond the call of duty and always find ways to make us look better! You are terrific. Lucy Gray’s Cooking on a Shoe String class begins soon; call for details. Everyone welcome. Keith Griffin photography classes begin on Monday Oct. 15 at 7:30 in Henderson House. See you at the Haunted Village. I’ll be the one in the witch costume!

Polenta, or coarsely ground cornmeal, is a Northern Italian staple—even more than pasta! Not to mention it’s like eating a big, warm hug. While it requires a bit of stirring, the results are really worth it. Leftover polenta will become firm when chilled—try it cut into squares and pan-fried! Serves 4 Ingredients 1 head of roasted garlic, recipe follows 20 brussel sprouts, washed and quartered 1 cup polenta 3 cups milk 2 cups vegetable stock 6 sprigs of thyme, leaves removed 3 tablespoons butter 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese, plus more for garnish salt/pepper

1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut the top 1/3 off of the head of garlic and place on a sheet of aluminum foil. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over garlic and season with salt and pepper. Wrap garlic in aluminum foil and roast for 1 hour till fragrant and tender. Let Cool. In a bowl combine quartered brussel sprouts, remaining olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Roast in baking dish for 25-30 minutes till caramelized and tender. Keep warm. Meanwhile, in a large heavy bottomed pot or Dutch oven heat milk and stock to a boil. Reduce heat and slowly whisk in polenta, stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Add thyme, butter and squeeze in roasted garlic. Cook over low heat 20-25 minutes, stirring very frequently Ladle hot polenta into bowls and top with brussel sprouts and additional grated cheese. Serve hot.

HALLOWE’EN SAFETY Tips for Smart Parents and Kids Halloween can be an exciting time for children and with the distraction of candy and costumes, safety rules can easily be forgotten. I n fact, research shows that distractions can increase a child’s chances of being struck by a car. Check out these simple tips to keep Halloween night a safe night for all:

1

 hildren under the age of nine should be C accompanied by an adult or responsible older child since they lack the developmental skills to cross the street on their own. This is a yearround tip that will help keep your child safe while you share good pedestrian habits and pass on a legacy of safety-minded behaviour.

James Goodliff landscape • wildlife • fantasy • portrait www.mediastain.com • 705.488.1915 October 19, 2012 - The Promoter 21


2

 each your child to stop at the curb, look T left, right and left again, and to listen for oncoming traffic. This vital skill is especially important when children are distracted and excited. Never rely on traffic signals alone use your eyes and ears to make sure it’s safe to cross.

3

It’s unsafe to cross between parked cars or other obstacles - always cross at crosswalks, street

CANVAS STUDIO

corners or intersections. Many injuries occur when children run out between parked cars, but even at intersections it’s vital that children practice tip #2.

4

S tay on the sidewalk or path when walking from house to house and if there is no sidewalk, walk beside the road, facing traffic so drivers can see you. From a very young age, children can be taught that roads are for cars and sidewalks are for kids. If your community has no sidewalks, walking beside the road at night can be very dangerous - adult accompaniment and flashlights are a must, regardless of the child’s age.

5

S elect costumes with bright colours to increase your child’s visibility and choose face paint instead of masks. Masks can make it hard for your child to see properly and often restrict peripheral vision, making it difficult to check for oncoming traffic before crossing a road.

Tips for Drivers

Halloween means that there will be more children out on the streets. Drivers need to take extra care.

1

Drive slowly in residential areas where children are more likely to be trick-or-treating. Did you know that drivers cannot accurately judge their own speed when driving? The higher the speed, the less likely you are to see a child pedestrian, and the harder it is to stop quickly.

2

 atch out for kids, many of whom may be W wearing costumes with masks that make it difficult for them to see. With the excitement of Halloween, children may forget simple pedestrian safety rules. They have a tendency to dart out in the most unexpected places - the most common being between parked cars. Remember also that costumes can limit a child’s vision and they may not be able to see your vehicle.

COBOCONK TREE PLANTINGS Marie and Paul South, Shield’s Home Hardware, declared the Coboconk, Norland and area plantings a great success. Approximately 20 trees were planted in various locations. “There are so many that helped make this tree plant a success. We thank Rockwood Forest Nurseries for providing delivery free of charge, Norland Horticultural Society and Bill and Pauline Barber for their guidance and such a great effort!” The students created, planned and drew out a plan for an outdoor classroom. The tree plant is the first step. Rockery and other landscaping will follow.

Health & Wellness DRIVE THE FLU AWAY One Shot at a Time

The local health unit may have a solution for area residents who want to be immunized against the flu but are unable to attend a community flu clinic due to a medical condition or special need. On Saturday, October 27, the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit is once again hosting a Drive Thru Flu Vaccination Clinic for people with conditions that would make it difficult to be immunized at a larger community clinic. The clinic, which is being held at Polito Ford Lincoln, Kent Street at Highway 7 in Lindsay, allows people to drive in and be immunized without ever leaving the vehicle. Drivers and care givers accompanying the individual can also be immunized at the same time. The Drive Thru Flu Vaccination clinic is geared to people who: • Are very frail with significant difficulty walking • Use a wheelchair • Are recovering from back or heart surgery • Are recovering from stroke or brain injury • Have serious auditory/visual conditions • Require a guide or companion dog • Are oxygen dependent • Are developmentally/mentally challenged • Have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease “It’s often the people who have these medical conditions or special needs who are the most vulnerable to influenza and its complications,” says Linda McCarey, Director of Communicable Disease Control for the HKPR District Health Unit. “The

drive thru flu clinic is an easy and effective way to ensure people can protect themselves or their family members from getting ill with influenza this winter.” Appointments are necessary for the clinic and must be booked before 4 pm on Friday, October 19 by calling the Health Unit at (705) 324-3569, ext. 220. The flu shot is the safest and most effective way to prevent the spread of influenza this winter, McCarey says, and in order to be protected, people need to be immunized.

INSIGHTS

Life Within Our Community My work with seniors and in long-term care has given me the gift of education from some of the greatest teachers. The people about whom I speak are much more than a diagnosis from a doctor; these are people who are much greater than what they have forgotten, and more than the times and situations they have witnessed throughout their time. People humble me with their experiences. These stories need to be shared, the lessons from them need to be learned and these teachers should be celebrated. Aging isn’t an easy journey, but it is a journey

The annual school immunization program to offer HPV vaccine to all Grade 8 girls is continuing. HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection in Canada and is responsible for 70 per cent of cervical cancers and 90 per cent of genital warts. “Three out of four sexually active women will get HPV at some point in their lives if they are not vaccinated,” says Shawn Woods, Sexual Health Manager at the HKPR District Health Unit. “Most people who become infected with HPV may not even know they have the infection, as there may be no signs or symptoms, but they still carry the virus and can infect others.” HPV is spread through vaginal, oral or anal sex or during intimate skin-to-skin contact with someone who is infected. The HPV vaccination is 98 per cent effective in protecting women against the four types of HPV infection. “By getting vaccinated now, young women are protecting themselves from any future exposure to an infected partner as well as protecting their partners from the risks of an HPV infection,” Woods says. The Health Unit will be offering HPV immunization clinics throughout the coming months. Anyone interested in booking an appointment can call the Health Unit toll-free at 1-866-888-4577. Written parental consent is required for anyone under the age of 16 years. For more information, visit www.hkpr.on.ca


October Is Eye Health Month This year’s Eye Health Month theme is “Look. See. Learn”. The focus is children’s vision and the importance of eye exams in early childhood to detect and prevent serious eye disorders. Since 80 per cent of classroom learning is visual, it’s extremely important for parents to have their children’s eyes tested prior to them starting school. School children with poor eyesight may fail to progress educationally and could even exhibit reading or learning disabilities.

It is important that children’s eyes are checked thoroughly when they’re young. Even if they have 20/20 vision, they can still have other problems with their eyes. In 2011, the Canadian Association of Optometrists published the Frequency of Eye Examinations – Guideline in the Canadian Journal of Optometry. These updated guidelines recommend that children’s eyes be tested for the first time when they are between 6 – 24 months, followed by one eye exam each year between the ages of 2 and 19 years. Young children may think that what they see is normal, even though it’s not. The earlier they are checked the better. In Ontario, OHIP covers the cost of eye examinations for children under 20 and seniors 65 and over.

Frequency of Eye Examinations – Guideline Age Group Birth to 24 Months Preschool 6 to 19 years 20 to 39 years 40 to 64 years 65 years and older

Recommendations* Infants and toddlers should undergo their first eye examination between the ages of 6 and 24 months. Preschool children should undergo at least one eye examination between the ages of 2 and 5 years. School children should undergo an eye examination yearly. Adults of this age should undergo an eye examination every 2 to 3 years. Adults of this age should undergo an eye examination every 2 years. Adults of this age should undergo an eye examination every year.

* Many factors influence the recommended frequency of optometric examinations. Only the examining optometrist, upon the analysis of all factors, including the patient’s overall health, can determine when a particular patient should return for follow-up. Some of the factors which would indicate high risk are: diabetes; hypertension; family history of glaucoma; those taking systemic medications with ocular side effects.

KPOW SPEAKS OUT Sewage Pipes Across The River

The North West Sewer Trunk is well underway. The City needs the residential and commercial development and taxation this will allow. However, the sewage must be piped across the Scugog River to the sewage treatment facility. There are time and financial pressures to complete this project. We feel that Council has not been presented with all the facts and in some cases misled. Staff are proposing methods of tunneling under the river with one or two pipes using a system of underground boring or hydraulic fracking to place the pipe(s) under the river through the bedrock of limestone (limestone is notorious for fracking). They would cross the river in an area historically known for high concentrations of PCB’s, heavy metals and other contaminants in the river sediment. PCB’s are not dangerous while dormant in the sediment but if disturbed could travel in the water column into Sturgeon Lake and beyond. The City has run pipes under the river at several locations, however never where there was high contamination of the riverbed. Should an “environmental accident” occur, the Ministry of the Environment would issue a stop work and remediation order. This would cause time delays to the project. If the MOE were to find the City responsible for the clean up, all taxpayers in the City of Kawartha Lakes will be financially responsible. Kawartha Protect Our Water (KPOW) suggests

Diamond Anniversary Bands

a more environmentally friendly proposal. That is, a bridge over the Scugog River carrying the sewage pipes as a more common sense solution, for the following reasons; it is proven technology (Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon are two local examples), guaranteed efficiency, safety, defined costs in a construction contract and no damage to the fish stocks or water quality in the Scugog or Sturgeon Lakes. Over-the-river piping could be easily maintained. If there is a leak under the river, a new pipe would have to be inserted inside the existing pipe at a huge cost and this would diminish the capacity of the pipe. Bridge piping could be easily expanded for future growth. Not the case with the under the river proposal and to make matters worse portions will be at capacity almost immediately. Councillor James has also made a proposal to cross over the river with a bridge at Thunder Bridge Road. We are confused and concerned that the under the river option is the method supported by Staff. We encourage you to support an over-theriver option by contacting Councillors with your concerns (check the City’s website for Councillors contact information) and by signing a petition at www.change.org/petitions/city-of-kawarthal a k e s - s t o p - t h e - u n d e r- r ive r- d r i l l i n g - o f - t h e scugog-for-placement-of-sewer-pipes?share_ id=gcIcPmxpKH&utm_campaign=mailto_ link&utm_medium=email&utm_source=share_ petition It is your water, environment and money so make sure your voice is heard!
