Founder of Cornerstone Family Dentistry in Peterborough dies after weekend incident - Kawartha Media GroupThursday, August 18, 2016
Ontario Fire Marshal and the Office of the Coroner are investigating but the incident is considered an accident with no foul play suspected.
Police say the incident happened near Burnt River in Somerville Township. Three people were reportedly hurt, although police say two did not appear to be seriously injured.
OPP confirmed Dr. Buys, 55, of Selwyn Township, died of her injuries on Aug. 16.
According to Cornerstone’s website, Dr. Buys moved to Peterborough in 1985. The following year she and her husband bought a home in the City’s north end and converted into a dental practice, which officially opened in 1987.
“It was small but quaint,” Dr. Buys wrote on the website. “We had three small rooms to operate out of. The staff of four found that there was no need for an intercom as we could easily communicate together. It was like family.”
In addition to growing her practice and serving her patients, according to Cornerstone, Dr. Buys dedicated time to volunteering and donating to the United Way, the Festival of Trees, the Dragon Boat Festival, Five Counties Children’s Centre, as well as many other organizations in the Peterborough area.
“She enjoys giving back to a community who has supported her and her team through the years,” reads part of Dr. Buys’ bio on the practice’s website, which notes she also enjoyed playing golf, skiing, gardening, fashion “and all of the fun stuff life has to offer such as spending time with her husband and two sons.”
Turco, her long-time patient, desecribed Dr. Buys as a "lovely and classy woman."
"I'm going to miss her," she added. "It's so sad what happened. When I found out, I was devastated. It's really heart-wrenching. She didn't deserve that; no one does. She had so much potential. You have to wonder what the good lord was thinking."
Speaking in general and not specifically about this incident, Kawartha Lakes Fire Prevention Officer Fritz Mattern notes that caution should always be used with products like kerosene lanterns. Such lanterns should only be used in well-ventilated areas well away from smoking materials or fire.
“Do not refill them while they are still warm,” he advises.
“Make sure all spillage is contained and cleaned up or evaporated before lighting.”

Brothers in arms: Ron and Ryan Anderson both survived tours in Afghanistan — but not PTSD - CBC.caThursday, April 12, 2018
Maureen and Peter Anderson)Ron and Ryan Anderson were built for war.The brothers grew up in a military family, moving around the globe before settling near New Brunswick's Canadian Forces Base Gagetown. Their father, Peter, was a sergeant major.There was never any doubt that Ron and Ryan would follow in their father's footsteps. They grew up playing "army" and following their dad to work.Both enlisted as soon as they finished Grade 10. Their parents couldn't have been more proud."I figured it was a good life," Maureen said.Ron and Ryan quickly racked up tours in conflict zones: places like Croatia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Eritrea and, finally, Afghanistan. Ryan Anderson, in the middle, is pictured during his tour to Afghanistan. Years later, he'd spend hours telling his mother stories about his time fighting in the war.(Maureen and Peter Anderson)They were well-trained, reliable soldiers and the medals piled up. During his first tour in Afghanistan, Ron, the eldest, received a commendation for treating an injured Afghan child in the middle of a hostile crowd.Ron didn't hesitate when he was asked to deploy to Afghanistan a second time, his fifth tour in a combat zone.It was what he was trained to do.A mother's intuitionMaureen didn't want Ron to go back. He wasn't the same after coming home from the country the first time. Didn't he have enough tours under his belt?"I really didn't want him to go," she said. "I just had a bad feeling."The Andersons — Ron, Ryan, Peter and Maureen — smile on Ryan's wedding day. Maureen worried about her sons going to Afghanistan.(Maria Jose Burgos/CBC)But she didn't say anything. Ron was looking forward to being deployed.And it would be Ryan's first tour in Afghanistan. Ron was going to keep an eye on his younger brother.They didn't know the carnage that awaited them.On Easter Sunday in 2007, six Canadian soldiers were killed in a roadside bombing west of Kandahar City.Five of the six men were from the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Canadian Regiment at tight-knit CFB Gagetown, where the Anderson brothers were posted. They included Sgt. Donnie Lucas, one of Ron's close friends."It was the first men to be killed in our unit in a very long time," said Blair Williams, who was also in Afghanistan at the time.After the blast, Ryan was dispatched to the site, a job that may have seen him picking up his friends' remains.Days later, Ryan travelled in the light armoured vehicle carrying Lucas's casket in the ramp ceremony, held before a soldier's body is sent home.Soldiers carry a casket during a ramp ceremony for six soldiers killed in a blast on Easter Sunday in 2007. Many of the victims were Ron and Ryan Anderson's friends.(CBC)The scenes from that ceremony stuck with Ryan, according to Williams."It touched his heart. Another friend that's not going to get to go home."A harrowing weekTwo months later, on June 13, 2007, Ron was in the Afghan desert when his heart started pounding. He was sweating heavily and his body was vibrating.Ron went to the medic, and the doctor knew exactly what was happening. It was the soldier's first panic attack, and the first sign that something was very wrong."It was just after my buddies got blown up," a href="http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-b...
Do-it-yourself casket kit adds life to New Brunswick woodworker's business - Globalnews.caThursday, April 12, 2018
A New Brunswick woodworker has designed a “do-it-yourself” casket kit to alleviate funeral costs.Woodworker Jeremy Burrill of Fredericton says he is a no-nonsense kind of guy, which is likely why his business mantra sounds like it was taken straight from an old-fashioned country song. “Just bury me in a pine box,” said Burrill, who owns the Fiddlehead Casket Co.Story continues belowREAD MORE: Woman pulls casket for miles for mental health awarenessBurrill said he wanted to give people a simpler, cheaper and more environmentally friendly option for their end of life send offs. He started handcrafting old-fashioned pine box coffins from his workshop in Fredericton, kind of like the ones used in the old west.“They are fastened with wooden dowels so there are no screws and no metal or anything in it,” Burrill said.The caskets sell for roughly $700 and even the bed lining is made of wood shavings. So so every part of the coffin is biodegradable. Over time,...
