Snowshoe Kawartha held in Fenelon Falls next month will kick off the Snowshoe Canada Ontario Cup Series again this year – and they hope to set a world record at the Feb. 3 event.
The stress and anxiety many people experience when it comes to caring for a loved one living with a serious or life-threatening illness can be tremendous. And it applies to millions of individuals and their families.
The experience of reading a good book, watching a memorable movie, or finding just the information you need to complete a project may be priceless, but the actual books, DVDs, and services of a reference librarian can all be assigned price tags.
Built into the website of one Ontario library is a value calculator, a nifty tool that lets you calculate the dollar value of the library resources you use.
An old Chinese proverb notes “the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” Kawartha Conservation wants to make it easy with the 2018 Tree Seedling Program.

“The tree seedling program is a great opportunity for landowners in the Kawartha Watershed to purchase low-cost seedlings,” says Stewardship Coordinator Holly Shipclark.

As basic income enrollments continue in Lindsay and two other Ontario cities, one key trend seems to be emerging – the so-called ‘working poor’ are the majority of applicants who are flocking to the Province’s new Ontario pilot.
With Environment Canada issuing almost daily extreme cold warnings, you may want to put up your feet and experience the bitter temperatures vicariously, from the comfort of an armchair, warming drink at hand.
The Kawartha Lakes libraries can help you with that. Here’s a sampling from the collection: a memoir, a short story, and a film, all of which will supply chills aplenty.
Another calendar year has dawned and with it has come the inevitable litany of resolutions about doing things differently in 2018. Old habits, as the saying goes, die hard.
We are partial to “the way things were,” and are slow to fill old wineskins with new wine, lest the old wineskins break and leave a mess in our comfortable world of old habits and supposedly unassailable practices. History, said Henry Ford (1863-1947), is bunk.
