Minden to focus on economic development By Lisa Gervais
The Township of Minden Hills is continuing to develop an economic development strategy that includes interviewing for an economic development, destination and marketing officer and
appointing a community improvement plan (CIP) task force. Consultant Jay Amer of Amer & Associates Economic Development in Peterborough presented his final draft of a plan to council on Aug. 9. His 17-page report last Thursday, in
addition to a 31-page previous presentation to council, is aimed at building and supporting a strong local economy, according to Amer. “You need to make the world aware of what this community is all about and how you’d like to grow,” Amer said when asked
by Coun. Jeanne Anthon how he would sell Minden to the outside world. He also commented that Minden had not been on the map for awhile. Amer said that when it comes to economic development resources, uppertier Haliburton County has been lacking,

with no dedicated staff since 2012 - excluding tourism, the Haliburton County Development Corporation, the Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce and provincial government field officers. Despite that, he charted job growth in Minden Hills, including educational services (up 73 per cent between 2012 and 2018), accommodation and food services (up 47 per cent) and health care and social assistance (up 34 per cent). There was also growth in retail, construction and public administration. His research found Minden Hills gained more jobs in that time period than Cavan-Monaghan, Gravenhurst, Prince Edward County and Haliburton - up 29 per cent in Minden, compared to 12 per cent in Haliburton, for example. As always, the need to invest in rural high-speed internet services was stressed. He concluded that the town’s priorities are: revitalizing the downtown, experiential retail, food markets and events, promoting tourism and natural resources, attracting investors in retail, residential and niche markets, brand marketing and promotion, business support, improving assets and engaging seasonal residents. He drilled down on more specific examples such as finding out what foods are unique to Minden Hills and exploiting that, working with the private sector on properties for sale and lease, and differentiating Minden from Haliburton County and its other towns. He cited the continuing arrival of baby boomers from the city, the township’s rural attractions, affordability, small town sensibility and co-operation, and “the fact you are in a

The CIP task force includes: Shawn Chamberlin, Andrew Graham, Jennifer Hughey, Fay Martin, Molly McInerney, Paul Roy, Jim Stanley and councillors Jeanne Anthon and Pam Sayne.
Mayoral candidate takes exception Mayoral candidate, Wayne Hancock, said he was, “surprised that there is a final draft of the economic development strategic plan being presented, and there is a recommended committee with two council members” when council is in a so-called lame duck period. He wrote the CAO and clerk, asking, “Is it appropriate to take forward this report at this time and appoint this committee with two council members, when we have the pending fall election?” CAO Lorrie Blanchard told The Highlander council gave her the authority to hire during lame duck (April/18 By-Law 18-56). “This was a mandate of this term of council and is in the 2018 budget,” she said. She added that the recommended committee members are for the CIP. She added that bringing new council members up to speed, if necessary, won’t be a problem. The plan is being funded in part through OMAFRA’s RED (Rural Economic Development) program and must be completed and approved by March 31, 2019,” she said.

NORTH COUNTRY REALTY INC., BROKERAGE - Independently Owned and Operated 10 Bobcaygeon Rd, Minden
By Mark Arike Since no one ran against him, Gary Brohman will continue in his role as school board trustee for Haliburton County. It’s a job he’s held for eight years (two, four-year terms). In an interview, the 73-year-old said he enjoys the work and making a positive impact in students’ lives. “I see my role as an educational advocate in Haliburton County and I work on behalf of the community,” said Brohman. “I believe in public education and partnering with parents to bring the very best policies forward so each and every student can be successful.” The longtime Haliburton resident spent 38 years of his career at Haliburton Highlands Secondary School (11 as a teacher, 10 as vice principal and 17 as principal). He was heavily involved in athletics as a coach. For 12 years, he served as a chair of the Rotary Club. Brohman first decided to run for trustee with the Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) in 2010. He believed his work experience and knowledge would be “beneficial to parents and students” in the county and he could “provide valuable insight” at the board table. The most rewarding part of the job has been providing support to parents, he said. “Listening to parents, understanding their concerns and providing them with information and correct channels so their concerns can be met in a timely manner.” He pointed out each school board trustee (there are nine plus a student trustee) must contribute to the board’s mandate of leadership and oversight. They work together to develop policies. Some other roles of a board member, said Brohman,
Haliburton County school board trustee Gary Brohman is looking forward to continuing in his role. TLDSB website.
include: establishing a vision and climate, goal setting, budgeting and “looking after schools.” Brohman also goes to local graduation ceremonies to congratulate students as they move on. The TLDSB is comprised of 41 elementary schools, seven secondary schools, and six alternation education and training centres. There are about 16,000 students.
Grant gives culinary initiatives a boost By Mark Arike
The County of Haliburton will hire a full-time culinary tourism coordinator for three months to push local culinary initiatives. The county’s culinary task force recently obtained a $14,000 grant from the Eastern Ontario Development Partnership fund. The total project cost is $28,000, half of which will pay the coordinator’s salary. The remaining $14,000 will come out of the tourism department’s budget. When she joined the County of Haliburton in 2014, tourism director Amanda Virtanen recommended implementing a culinary strategy for the region. In 2015, a strategy was prepared with the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance. According to the 238-page document, it was developed to “position the region as a culinary tourism destination.” “A number of projects have moved forward as a result [of the strategy],” said Virtanen. A task force, comprised of eight local culinary stakeholders, was formed and new partnerships between businesses have happened, she said. But in order to achieve progress on various initiatives, the task force decided it needed to hire someone. The coordinator will distribute a survey to local chefs and “food experience providers” to “identify areas of overlap
where businesses can partner, who is willing to participate at what level” and what kind of support they need, for example. Virtanen’s recent report to council also states they will establish “formal and informal networks” to “extend service jobs” into full-time, year-round work. The idea came from Tourism Scotland, which recently started a similar network. The coordinator will also develop two new culinary experience to pilot in the winter. They will report to Virtanen and be “mentored” by members of the task force. The county’s tourism committee will provide progress updates to county council. Although she doesn’t believe culinary tourism will be the main reason people come to the area, Virtanen has seen many positive developments in the food industry. This includes business partnerships, the creation of two microbreweries and the growth in popularity of Abbey Gardens and the farmers’ markets. “It shows that culinary tourism is starting to blossom in our area,” she said. “I definitely think we’re in a good position to have a coordinator come on board.” She adds they’re considering seeking more funding for future work. A job posting will be out mid-September. It’s anticipated that a coordinator will start in October.

Editorial opinion TheHighlander Published by The Highlander Newspaper Limited
195 Highland Street, Box 1024 Haliburton, Ontario K0M 1S0 CANADIAN COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER AWARD 2012
The Highlander’s Mission To tell the story of Haliburton County each week To be a source of information and inspiration through stories and ideas To report on issues, people and events important to the community To reflect and promote pride in the culture, people and landscape of The Highlands To encourage Highlanders to believe in themselves, in our community, and in their power to make our place in the world better every day.
Real estate squeezing millennials The Globe and Mail had an interesting story last week, titled: Locals in Ontario’s cottage country prepare for battle with big-city home buyers. The feature really didn’t come as any surprise to us. For a number of years now, we have heard from people born and raised in Haliburton County, or who have moved back home from stints away, that they can’t afford to buy a home here. While the Globe story focused on a couple of older residents, leaving Irondale and struggling to find an affordable home in Minden, the stories I hear most often are from young professionals for whom owning a home appears to be a pipe dream. They tell me if they can find a property for less than $300,000 … and that is a big ‘if’ … it tends to be a fixer-up beyond their expertise or budget to upgrade. So, they continue to rent – extremely high rent for the most part – and go about the motions of fruitless searches for a permanent place to hang their hat. The real concern here, and I have heard it
from countless young professionals in their mid-to-late 20s and into their 30s, is they are considering leaving the county to finally secure their dream of one day owning a home. It is a real shame when the county already has a dearth of young professionals in an area that has been identified as struggling to find workers across multiple industries. What is happening is Toronto baby boomers are selling their million-dollar properties in the big city to retire to rural and regional Haliburton County where they can spend a third to a half of their GTA sales proceeds to snap up a place here and then live on the remainder. While we welcome the influx of new residents, and the money they bring to the local economy, they are also creating a lack of affordable housing for our own. Anecdotally, we continue to hear that properties sell quickly but it takes longer to find and buy ones. And, for the first time ever, we are also hearing about bidding wars in our county.
One Haliburton realtor told the Globe that prices of homes and cottages have gone up 20 per cent since last year, because of the increasing demand and a lower By Lisa Gervais supply. And it isn’t just competition from the GTA, we’ve learned, but also places such as Ottawa, London and other surrounding cities. It is a major concern for millennials in our county. While real estate is a private industry, as we head towards the fall municipal elections, it would be good to hear from our prospective mayors, deputy mayors and councillors on this continuing housing issue. What can the County of Haliburton and its lower-tier municipalities do to ensure we do not lose our best and brightest because they can’t afford to buy a home here?
Lock your doors! You may not have noticed, but, just a couple of weeks ago, we quietly slipped into August. It is once again time to lock your vehicles. It was most likely the heat or the oppressive humidity … perhaps it was the seemingly more frequent power outages that played havoc with your electronic calendar. But any doubt quickly vanished when traffic overload clogged our highways and the selection of shopping carts at your favourite food emporium dwindled to the one on which all four wheels are wonky, turning your milk purchase into butter as you trundled about the store. But, as surely as the log pile inspectors are roaming the countryside looking for egregious infractions, we have crossed the great summer divide and begun the inevitable downward slide toward autumn and, yikes(!), the return to school. For those unfamiliar with the breadth of writing one can encounter under this byline, the “log pile inspectors” was a column penned three years ago warning my faithful readers of the insidious intrusion of the authorities into our lives as sharp-eyed investigators were sent cruising the backroads of the county to search out and issue citations for misaligned woodpiles. It is expected with the new regime in Queen’s Park, this violation of our right to pile as we please, will disappear
forever. (The jurisdiction for this creeping left-wing conspiracy is believed to fall under the Ministry of Labour, so we can expect a prompt resolution of the matter). In the meantime, keep your piles neatened and your butts aligned. But, now is the time to take additional precautions to ensure that your car or truck is locked at all times when unattended. As accustomed as we are to just walking away from our vehicles and leaving the door unlocked and the windows ajar, now is the time to exercise additional vigilance. Use the locking option on the key fob, the one that activates a short beep of your vehicle’s horn and makes passersby turn, look and wave, like it was a friendly toot from a passing ship. August is full-lockdown mode month with all entry points secured. There are those who scoff at this admonition, and they do so at their peril. I know one individual with a reckless attitude, who thought, when he was just going into the post office for a moment and could ignore the warning, returned to his vehicle to discover the ugly truth. There, to his bruised chagrin, on the front seat, beside the open window. lay evidence of the folly of his actions … a dozen zucchini and three acorn squash. Yes, dear reader, this foolhardy person was the victim of a friendly vegetable giveaway.
This time of year, when gardens in the Highlands groan under the weight of nature’s bounty, desperate gardeners begin a frantic search By Jack Brezina for “friends” upon whom they can thrust their over-flowing harvest. Not wishing a zucchini, cucumber or squash to go to waste, they wander the streets in search of unprotected vehicles and, like children left in baskets on the doorsteps of convents all over the world, dispatch their garden surplus through any open window or unlocked door. They do so in the hope that the newfound home for the vegetables will welcome the orphan produce into their hearts and will know how to process them into muffins, frittatas, waffles, stir fries, quiche, deep fried vegetable sticks, soup, crudo, pizza, cornbread, fritters, meatballs, ratatouille, lasagna, pistou, bread, brownies, cake, cookies and cobbler. Ignore this warning at your peril my friends and save a little pity for those driving pickup trucks with open boxes.
CLARIFICATION: Highlands East’s public meeting on short-term rentals will start at 6 p.m. on Aug. 29 at the Lloyd Watson Centre, not 5 p.m. as reported in last Thursday’s Highlander. At the Aug. 1 council meeting, CAO Shannon Hunter said the municipal planner recommended scheduling the meeting from 5-7 p.m.

Short-term rentals, fireworks and more
Aim bylaws at those who only rent cottages
Dear editor, I totally agree with your editorial from Aug. 9. I see so many things going on, on our lake and shake my head because I know there’s no one at this time from Dysart that for any number of reason will, won’t, can’t do anything. I just received a note from a fellow owner about the party going on at 3 a.m. on Saturday morning, at the place next door to him. It was being rented. A twobedroom cottage, at least 16 people, one septic system. I had listened to the fireworks going off from Long Lake, as well as Wenona a couple of nights during the week. Yes, we’ve had some rain but has it solved the dryness problem totally and why just any day of the week? Here’s an easy solution to start out with, don’t allow them to be sold 365 days a year and only allow them to be set off on specified dates. Then, there’s the people that come to rentals with their own boats and jet-skis like they are off to a fire. They are pulling skiers or float boards with spotters sitting in front of the driver that can’t see over the driver’s arms because they are four or five-years old. And, are their boats actually clean? For some owners, their places on a lake are a full-time location for them, and others, it’s supposed to be their quiet getaway place. Renters don’t seem to respect the things around them and if there’s no way to penalize the owners that allow it to go on with no repercussions we’ll be lucky to have them still standing or very bad memories. Phyllis McCulloch Wenona Lake
Dear Editor, I read with interest the articles on short-term rentals and the issues related to that. I am a cottage owner on Soyers Lake and we use the cottage regularly, but we also do four, weekly rentals, throughout the summer to help defray the rising costs of ownership. We use a local rental agency who screen all prospective renters and along with the cottage owner, develop a strict set of rules for use of the cottage (for example, fireworks are strictly forbidden and the agency, being local, also advise their renters when fire bans are in place). Being a local owner (our family has been on the lake for over 60 years) we know about septic systems, respecting neighbours, etc., as does the rental agency. So, should Minden Hills adopt the same bylaw, since we rent for 28 days, we would be subject to the license fee, which in my opinion would simply be a tax grab and not result in any change to what we are already doing. The bylaw should be directed at those owners who do not use their cottage but simply rent it out. Glenn and Shelley Davis Soyers Lake
Every writer loves a metaphor, that turn of phrase which perfectly describes something without actually having anything to do with it, and it was as I mowed my backyard on the weekend that one such metaphor struck me. I’d finished the main lawn and the dog’s pen, the bit by the river and the square that used to be our veggie garden. I’d even done the awkward lawn that sits up above the rest, surrounded by old railway ties and, frankly, I was just about fed up with mowing but there was one last bit to do. Begrudgingly I pushed the mower – yes, it’s a push mower because I’m eternally cheap – to the edge of the driveway where a scrubby patch of grass grows next to the road. In fact, it grows out into the road.
PHOTO OF THE WEEK
There’s no neat edge to it, no kerb, no asphalted start to the road surface, no real end to the driveway nor the grass. It just sort of runs out, stopped from spreading only by the occasional crushing from a passing car but not being annihilated by myriad traffic either. I guess what I’m getting at is that there is no real border, a lack of delineation, a blurring of lines between lawn and road and I like that because as I mowed, it reminded me of the relaxed, happy nature of my life here in rural Canada. It makes me smile as I think of how my property blends seamlessly into my neighbour’s, no need for a fence to state “Keep Out.” It brings to mind how folks just leave their canoe down by the creek or pond, knowing that it’ll be there
This photo was taken atop the 8th hole at the Highlands Golf Course last Saturday. The photographer is Rachael Hanna, a cottager on Kashagawigamog.
next time they go to use it. My patch of scrubby grass that stretches out into the road is a metaphor for the good spirit that I have found here in Canada. Now, this might seem silly but back in Blighty everything is different. Every square inch of the country is portioned up and guarded jealously by its owner. Postage stamp size backyards are fenced in behind six-foot high barriers. Driveways are paved to the exact spot where they meet the public pavement, their borders crisp and decisive, marked with concrete kerbs or paving bricks. Everyone knows exactly how much property they own and woe betide anyone else who crosses that line without permission. But the thing is, they do. This incessant need to mark out
and protect property seems to have bred a nation of petty thieves because back in Blighty if you leave By Will Jones your canoe out on your lawn and turn your back, it’ll be gone. Even though there’s not a stretch of river nor murky pond for that thief to paddle it in because they’re all fenced off and on someone else’s property. I push the mower back to the shed past my own canoe. It lies in the front yard that has no fence around it, no “Beware Guard Dog” signs and I grin because I know it will still be there tomorrow morning because I sleep on the front porch with a shotgun in my lap ... metaphorically speaking, of course.

Radiothon rakes in $22K for campaign Once again, the community came through for local health care during the 12th annual Radiothon hosted by Moose FM and the Haliburton Highlands Health Services Foundation. A total of $22,400 was raised Aug. 9-10. Listeners phoned in donations and dropped them off at the Haliburton station as well as Boshkung Social in Minden. The money will go toward the “At the Heart of the Matter” campaign to purchase cardiac telemetry equipment for the Minden and Haliburton hospitals. July’s Matt Duchene Charity Golf Classic raised nearly $50,000 for the cause. The equipment will cost $525,000. (Mark Arike)

Harassment complaint leads to signage After receiving a harassment complaint, Highlands East will install signage at a public boat launch on Paudash Lake reminding the public it can be used by anyone. Bancroft resident Douglas Moore recently told council he has been verbally harassed and notes have been left on his truck saying it’s “cottage association-owned and only cottage association people should use it.” Moore goes fishing at the launch, located at the end of Lewis Road. “I thought it was public, so I went to the township and the bylaw officer told me it was public,” he said on Aug. 1. “So, I continue to go back … there are a couple people there that are very aggressive, I’d say rude, about the situation.” Moore claims he had to call the police during his most recent visit. He suggested the municipality erect signs at the launch and the intersection of Lewis Road and Colborne Creek Road. Mayor Dave Burton confirmed the launch is public.

Council unanimously approved the installation of signage at the end of Lewis Road. The cost wasn’t discussed.
Elevator up and running at curling club The Wilberforce Curling Club now has a working elevator. “It’s almost as good news as [John] Tavares getting signed to the Leafs,” joked Jim Alden, Highlands East’s property supervisor, during a recent council meeting. The $25,660 elevator was paid for by a federal Enabling Accessibility Fund grant. It passed its inspection and approval documentation has been posted at the club.
Cameras possible for landfills Surveillance cameras could be installed at landfills in Highlands East to deter illegal dumping and scavenging. The municipality’s environment committee recently discussed the issue and recommended that equipment options be investigated. “This was discussed in length in regards

to activity that’s been going on at the waste sites,” said clerk Robyn Rogers, pointing out that waste has been left outside of the landfills. Mayor Dave Burton said he was concerned about the impact on the budget. “That’s why we said [to] investigate, so it can be part of budget discussions,” replied Deputy Mayor Suzanne Partridge, who is also chair of the committee. Council instructed municipal staff to

investigate the options. CAO Shannon Hunter told them all departments are extremely busy this time of year. To give them time, councillors recommended that costs be presented just prior to fall budget deliberations. There are four landfill sites and one transfer station in the municipality.

Marie and Donald Gage will be hosting the newly-formed rootsacoustic trio, The Primary Colours, at a house concert on Aug. 20. The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. at 1175 Shuyler’s Island Rd. in Minden and feature Kim Richey, Doug Cox and Linda McRae. The Primary Colours features “sublimely talented roots-acoustic musicians who merge beautiful harmony vocals with striking instrumental prowess, resulting in a full spectrum of songs with unique depth and resonance,” said Marie Gage. “They’re at that point in their careers where they’ve nothing left to prove, egos get put aside and it’s all about serving the song and honouring the audience. Richey is a songwriter who’s been nominated for two Grammy awards and released seven critically-acclaimed albums. In addition to having written hits for Radney Foster and Trisha Yearwood, the Nashville-based artist has also appeared as a harmony singer on Jason Isbell, Rodney Crowell, Ryan Adams’ albums and more. Multi-instrumentalist Cox is a master of the guitar, the mandolin, the Dobro and the Weissenborn. He’s had the opportunity to perform with musical stars such as Ellen McIlwaine, Amos Garrett and the Mighty Popo, playing an eclectic assortment of musical styles from New Orleans funk to Texas twang. Nashville-based McRae rounds out the trio with her multiinstrumentalist skill on the clawhammer banjo, acoustic and electric guitars, accordion, bass, and foot percussion. She is best known for having been a part of the Canadian musical supergroup, Spirit of the West and is the creator of the Express Yourself Writing Workshops currently being presented to at-risk youth and inmates across North America. “As this will be our second concert ever, we are very excited about this performance,” said McRae. “We will be playing some originals in addition to some songs people will recognize. We have each chosen a number of our favourite songs to round out our set list and it’s been so much fun working on all the songs and getting our parts down.” It was through McRae’s friendship with the Gages that this concert came to fruition. After getting word that The Primary Colours would be making stops at Owen Sound and Prince Edward County on their tour this year, Gage reached out to the trio and asked if they’d like to perform a house concert in Minden. “They are wonderful hosts and have become great friends. I always look forward to seeing them,” said McRae about the Gages. “They have a lovely, lakefront log home and their space itself is wonderful to play in with its high ceilings, stone fireplace and all that wood.” Tickets cost $20 at the door and all the proceeds will go to the performers.

Vape shop opens in downtown Haliburton
By Mark Arike
Haliburton residents who vape as an alternative to smoking don’t have to drive far to pick up the products they need. On Aug. 1, Muskoka Vapor Haliburton opened its doors at 24 York St. The business has a wide variety of products, including starter kits, e-liquids, mods and accessories. It’s co-owned by Vancouver residents Andrew Betteridge and Herman Ho. A former smoker, Betteridge picked up his first e-cigarette in 2011. “I came across somebody that was using an e-cigarette and asked them what that was,” he said in a phone interview. “I smoked at the time, and bought one the next day. I stopped smoking immediately. A few weeks later, I thought I’d start selling them as a business.” Betteridge, a former Bracebridge resident, also ran a construction business. But in 2014, he went into the vaping industry full time. He has four shops located in Bracebridge, Vancouver, Squamish, B.C. and Haliburton. It made sense to open in Haliburton for several reasons. There wasn’t a shop in town, and many of their customers in Bracebridge travel from Haliburton, he explained. And the timing is right because
Health Canada recently declared vaping safer than smoking. At the end of May, the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act replaced the Tobacco Act. It regulates vaping products to “protect young persons from nicotine addiction and tobacco use, while allowing adults access to vaping products as a less harmful alternative to smoking.” None of the products will be sold to anyone under the age of 19. In fact, if anyone who appears underage walks in, they will be asked to show identification. “We’re not allowed to let kids in the store,” he said, adding the windows are blacked out so products aren’t visible outside. They have a manager who runs the shop. She is allowed to provide customers product demonstrations, said Betteridge. They plan to hire a part-time employee. Betteridge and Ho want to keep the store open long into the future. The response from the community has been very positive so far. “It’s been great,” he said. “Out of all the stores we’ve opened, it had the fastest growing sales in the first week.” They’re open six days a week, but that will change to seven soon. A grand opening will be held in the next few weeks.

In loving memory of
HYDE- DONALD LESLIE
HYDE- DONALD LESLIE died peacefully on July 21, 2018. Son of the late Ray Hyde (2003) and Jean Hyde (2007). Loving father of James Hyde (Alyssa) of Oshawa and Devon Lyn Hyde (Glenn) of Scarborough, and grandfather to Katelyn and Connor. He will be missed by his siblings, Charles (Cathy) of Barrie; Janice (Barry) of Thornhill, and Robert and Rae-Marie of Waterloo as well as his aunt and uncle and many cousins, nieces and nephews. Don graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Civil Engineering) in May, 1974 and started his employment right away with CN where he remained until he retired in 2003. Throughout his time with CN he was posted from coast to coast in Canada, until finishing his career in Edmonton. He was a loyal employee. One of his proudest accomplishments was obtaining his Master of Business Administration from the University of Alberta in 1995. Both at work and in his academics, although considered a quiet individual, he was considered a respected leader and mentor. Don was especially fond of driving and loved to go on road trips. Music selection was always a key part of the planning for the trip limiting himself to ten cds so others could have their choices. Sometime after he retired, he returned to live in Haliburton where he had spent his high school years, and later moved to Barrie. Don was an avid reader and a collector of all types of music. Many hours were spent on his computer researching books and music to share with his family. Don was a strong individual who maintained his independence and sense of humor despite his disabilities from Rheumatoid Arthritis. He will be remembered for his quick wit, and intelligent conversations. Special thanks to the staff and nurses of 3West at Mill Creek Care Centre in Barrie for the extra special care that they provided to Don. Cremation has taken place. The Hyde family received visitors at the DAVIDSON FUNERAL HOME, 135 Clarence Street, Port Colborne on Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 12 noon until 2:00 p.m., followed by a Celebration of Life in the Davidson Chapel. Interment to follow at Oakwood Cemetery, Wainfleet. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Arthritis Society or charity of your choice if desired.

Faculty raise over $20k for bursaries By Felix Wong Everything from wool to face4:00 masks FHL_boshkung_Layout 1 scarves 2015-01-28 PMand Page 1 watercolour paintings were auctioned off at the Haliburton School of Art and Design’s (HSAD) annual faculty art auction on Aug. 9. The auction, which has been held for more than 30 years, takes place towards the end of the summer and features works of art created and donated by faculty who teach in HSAD’s summer school and art certificate program. The evening began with a silent auction as people perused the artwork on display, followed by a live auction emceed by Gordon Cressy. “There are over 100 works of art available here … we’ve got everything from paintings to sculpture to fiber pieces to jewellery,” said HSAD principal Sandra Dupret. “I couldn’t pick a favourite [work of art].” “This was done in a class I was teaching,” said instructor Gwen Tooth, gesturing at an expressionist painting on display during the silent auction portion of the evening. “I put different colours down and let them go where they may. There’s been some scraping on the top of the yellow undercoat, and at the end I tried to get some shapes and form. It’s all about colour, form and shapes; it’s not about seeing a specific object.” The $20,411 raised from the 130 items sold will go towards student bursaries for art and design students at the school.

Getting cheeky for the Land Trust
People grooved to the sounds of The Cheeky Monkeys and multi-instrumentalist Jamie Williams at the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust’s (HHLT) fundraiser on Aug. 10. The “Rock our World” dance, held at the Haliburton Legion, featured a silent and live auction, a cash bar and live music. The Cheeky Monkeys, a local five-piece blues band, kicked off the evening with an hour-long set, followed by Williams, who performed rock n’ roll tunes on 16 different instruments. The proceeds from the 140 people in attendance will go towards maintaining the Land Trust’s properties and trails, said board member Martha Larsen. They will also go towards “environmentally-sensitive Barbara programs that we run: bat boxes, educational tours and talks from different scientists who are experts in their field,” she added.

Flower power at Minden show It’s been a challenging season for growers, with everything from recent hail, to heat and dryness. So, the flowers and vegetables on display at this past weekend’s show in Minden is a testament to gardeners’ prowess and perseverance, organizers said. “Every year is different,” said master gardener Heather Chambers. “You just have to be ready for whatever nature throws at you.” She said the new climate reality has her personally looking at drought-tolerant plants, such as hydrangeas, corn flowers, perennial daisies and day lilies, for example. The Minden and District Horticultural Society held its 39th annual garden show Aug. 10-11 at the Minden Hills Community Centre.
In addition to flowers, there were specimens, decoratives, collections, potted plants and vegetables. The opening ceremony was held Friday night and the show continued all day Saturday. Ruth Greenwood was visiting from Toronto. “It’s really interesting,” she said. “I have a little garden at home.” She’s been struggling with her peonies but talked with the master gardeners and got a few tips, including that they need more sun, rich soil and can’t be planted too deep. Ede Birkett, who’s been coming to Gull Lake since 1938, popped in on Saturday. She tries to get to the show every year. “I really enjoy it. You can get a good look.” (Lisa Gervais)

Highlands East studio tour continues this weekend

Luann Coghran displays her acrylic paintings during the 16th annual Highlands East Studio Tour on Aug. 11. “I’m not so interested in selling my work,” said Coghran, who was showcasing her artwork at her house in Wilberforce. “I like teaching people to do it for themselves because I find when you paint something yourself, even if it’s not exactly the same as the person who painted the original, you get so much more joy out of it. You look at it a couple of days later and go, ‘wow, I can’t believe I painted that!’” The tour of fine arts and crafts took place in Irondale, Gooderham, Tory Hill, Wilberforce, Paudash and Harcourt. The first weekend of the tour took place on Aug. 11-12 and the second will take place from Aug. 18-19. (Felix Wong)

Haliburton museum turns 50 A 1960s-themed celebration took place at the Haliburton Highlands Museum on Aug. 11 to celebrate its 50th anniversary. “Since the museum was established in the 1960s, we thought it would be fun to have a 1960s theme to the celebration,” said museum director Kate Butler. There were treats, crafts and games inspired by the time period as well as a tour of Reid House, the museum’s original home. “The most exciting part of celebrating this anniversary for the museum has been the
opportunity to look back into and share our history as an institution … Over the years, the museum has vastly grown in terms of the number of programs it offers and the number of community partners it works with,” said Butler. “It’s also a time to think about the amazing contributions of so many people who have helped the museum over the years and to thank the community for its support of the museum and its interest in local history.” (Felix Wong)
