Rare public tours of Kingston Pen the hottest ticket in town Kingston Pen which locked its doors for the final time on September 30, has the city buzzing with the opportunity to tour inside the storied stone walls. Tickets for the tours, which benefit the Kingston United Way, quickly sold out. By Bill Hutchins Reporter
Fort Fright Pg. 33
Heritage News – Kingston Pen has been turned into Alcatraz North. The Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington United Way has partnered with Corrections Canada to start offering one-of-a-kind public tours of Canada’s oldest and most notorious prison – but only for a short time through October. “There is a three week window between when the last inmate leaves
and when the prison is decommissioned. We plan to put that to good use,” said Bhavana Varma, president of the KFL&A United Way. The behind-the-wall prison tours – running Oct. 2 to 20 – may represent the public’s first and only chance to tour KP, as locals call it, before it’s officially decommissioned. “These tours present an unprecedented opportunity for Canadians to learn about Kingston Penitentiary and public safety. At the same time, visitors will be supporting those in
need in the Kingston area,” said Lori MacDonald, Corrections Canada’s regional deputy commissioner (Ontario Region) who is also chair of the 2013 United Way fundraising campaign. If you think public interest in the nearly 200 year old prison is waning - think again. Tickets for the tour sold out in only a couple of days. More than 5,000 tickets were purchased within a couple of days after the campaign opened. The tour tickets cost $20 each (children are free), and
went on sale last Friday only through the United Way’s website. The $20 ticket includes a 90-minute guided tour of prison grounds and cells, plus the Correctional museum across the street. There will be daily tours between Wednesdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. “While we are saddened by the closing of this public institution, we very much appreciate the opportunity to provide local residents with public Continued on page 3

City council to tighten its own travel rules Rare public tours of Kingston Pen the hottest ticket in town with spending, information reports Reporter
EMC News – City councillors want to establish new rules for themselves whenever they attend out-of-town conferences on the taxpayers’ tab. A motion approved September 24 will require councillors to write a public report and post all claimed expenses every time they return from a conference or training session. “We need to be transparent as much as we can,” said Coun. Dorothy Hector, who authored the motion that received unanimous council support. Coun. Hector is a frequent traveller outside of Kingston as the city’s representative on the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). She says part of the motion stems from frustration that she can never report her findings directly to council. The city’s procedural bylaw currently does not allow councillors to write a summary of where they went and what they learned. Her motion would change Bylaw #1 to allow such a

practice. “These things are not to be political reports, but factual reports,” she insisted. Coun. Rick Downes went a step further by amending the motion to require that councillors also list their claimed travel, hotel and meal expenses along with their information reports to council. “I think it’s high time we get specific and become transparent.” Staff from the clerk’s office will investigate the new protocols and work with the administrative policies committee to finalize the new reporting requirements. It’s expected future travel reports will be added to the regular council agenda, which can then be easily accessed by the public. The city already publishes an annual list of council salaries, travel and conference reimbursements. Supporters of the new requirements say this will add another layer of transparency. Mayor Mark Gerretsen welcomes the increased political accountability because it forces councillors to let their colleagues know what they’ve learned. He suggested some councillors do not share conference information as much as they should. “I think there’s a serious concern about accountability. I think we’d be doing councillors a favour.” While all councillors backed the motion, the debate got off to
a tense start when Coun. Downes openly questioned why the city’s manager of intergovernmental relations got to attend a recent FCM conference in St. John’s, along with Coun. Hector. He suggested that only elected officials used to attend such conferences. “There seems to be a change now and I wanted to know why.” Mayor Gerretsen quickly cut off Downes’ line of questions and cautioned him to follow the “proper channels” when challenging the conduct of a staff member. He says the staffer provided a report on the trip directly to his office, and any questions relating to conference attendance should not made during an open council meeting. “I have to protect the integrity of all city staff,” he said. Coun. Downes says his tone was respectful and was not meant to embarrass anyone. The manager of intergovernmental relations is a position created under Gerretsen’s administration. That person’s role is to network with senior government leaders with the aim of forwarding Kingston’s policies and lobbying for grant dollars. Coun. Hector says the very fact that neither she nor the staffer can currently report their conference information directly to council is one reason why her accountability motion is needed.

plans to hold a formal decommissioning ceremony in late October. Neither the government nor Corrections has said what will become of Kingston Pen, though part of it is designated a National Historic Site. Kingston mayor Mark Gerretsen says the city has no interest in purchasing the site. “I don’t think there’s any interest in using taxpayer dollars to buy the Kingston Pen.” However, the mayor says the idea currently being pitched by a local group to transform part of the mothballed prison into a centre for sailing excellence has some merit. The waterfront prison is located beside Portsmouth Olympic Harbour.
tours of the oldest penitentiary in Canada,” said Varma. The United Way estimates it can accommodate 600 visitors a day on the walking tours. The fundraising campaign has set this year’s goal at $3.41 million. Proceeds from the prison walkabout alone could generate between $100,000 and $200,000. Kingston Penitentiary is older than Canada itself. It opened June 1, 1835 as the “Provincial Penitentiary of the Province of Upper Canada.” The King Street prison by the lake has gained a notorious reputation for previous riots and escapes, and as home to some of Canada’s worst criminals like Bernardo, (613) Williams, Shafia 384-0012 and Olson.

Limestone Kabob House: Healthy, fast, fresh food with a pinch of tradition Syed Zaidi, owner of Limestone Kabob House, may not have a culinary background, but he certainly knows what makes a good kabob and its more than just the ingredients. Tradition is the dominant feature throughout the Limestone Kabob House, from the handmade carpets lining the walls to the Boulanee, fried tortilla stuffed with potatoes, green onion and spices. “We want to meld tradition with our food,” says Zaidi, “We emphasize the work that went into producing these carpets and the people that made them. They are producing masterpieces and we
hope to accomplish that with the food as well.” The restaurant offers authentic Afghani and Middle Eastern cuisine and all dishes are made to order with fresh ingredients. Spices and meat, which is all halal, are ground in house and artisan flat bread is baked fresh daily. Soup, salads and even desserts are made from scratch, making the dishes both tasty and healthy. While all of this sounds like the work of a full service fine dining restaurant, the Limestone Kabob House is a fast food restaurant in terms of set up and cost. “We prepare our food with the
same love and care of a fine dining restaurant, but we serve in a quick and easy laid back manner,” adds Zaidi, “Every kabob takes between 10-12 minutes to cook, once ordered. In the meantime, guests can enjoy our complementary Suleimani Chai, black tea with green cardamom.” Once people come to Limestone Kabob House they see the difference that quality and freshness makes. Food is served in a style that brings history and tradition forward in each dish, making the experience authentic and memorable, something to come back for again and again.

Enjoy local, organic produce year-round with winter community supported agriculture farm in Battersea. Patchwork Gardens started a winter CSA in 2011 to complement their popular summer CSA; through these programs, members pay an upfront fee to receive monthly and weekly shares of organic produce, respectively. “We’re trying to move the farm into a four seasons model where we have sales through the winter of storage crops, as well as early and late hearty leafy greens and that kind of thing,” Stutt says. This year, Stutt and his fellow co-owners, Megan Joslin and Eric Williams, expect the Patchwork winter CSA to be bigger and bet-
ter than ever. He notes that so far, the operation has been challenging but very successful and enjoyable. “It’s been really fun to keep in touch with Heritage Lifestyle – Think you can’t all the different families through the winter have locally-grown food in February? Think instead of just in the summer. And it’s really again. been a challenge for us to learn and get reYear-round local produce is becoming ally good at quality storage practices.

ket demand is growing and the production base is growing. [The CSA model] gives us more of a certainty that the market is there. Then we can just focus on producing for it. What that allows us to do is plan ahead and know that we’re going to have productive work through the winter that needs doing. That allows us to then forego the off-farm, off-season job for ourselves and focus on the farm and improving our ability to supply vegetables to the local market.” Ultimately, Stutt says, this contributes to the goal of making local food really happen for the community: “[This] means connecting with Kingston area families and businesses to provide high quality fresh produce that carries the unique flavours and character of the soil and climate in our region. It’s food from our region, for
our region - a very rare occurrence in today’s world.” He adds that feeling a connection to your food and the people who grow it is another significant benefit of CSAs. “That’s invaluable. You’re not just buying vegetables. You’re investing in the future of farming in your area. I think it’s important for people to realize that it makes a big impact when they do get involved and they see themselves as part of that whole context.” To learn more about Patchwork Gardens’ CSAs, check out Ian Stutt’s YouTube channel.

New tower means better internet and cellular coverage for Bath By Jim Barber Staff Writer
Heritage News - As many people in the community of Bath already know, high-speed internet and cellular phone coverage can be a little spotty. But an agreement between Loyalist Township and Xplornet, ratified at the last meeting of council on Sept. 23, should go a long way to ensure all residents and businesses are able to log onto the best internet and cellular power possible. After what was termed extensive discussions, council passed a bylaw that gives Xplornet permission to construct a communications tower on the site of the Loyalist Township Utilities Department’s Millhaven garage site along County Road 4. “The Village of Bath is in a bit of a valley and once this tower is up and running it’s going to give us something like 95 per cent coverage in the area. Historically, it doesn’t seem to matter if you’ve got a cell phone from Rogers or Telus or whoever, it seems to be a very difficult area to get reception,” said Mayor Bill Lowry. When Lowry was Lennox & Addington County Warden, he was part of the Eastern Ontario Warden’s Caucus that successfully lobbied the federal and provincial governments to fund what became the Eastern Ontario Regional Network. “The whole driving force from the Warden’s Caucus was how Eastern Ontario was going to try and expand and
be more attractive to both new residents and businesses, and the biggest downfall was the lack of internet access. Businesses rely so much on the internet to run their operation, but if they don’t have the ability to hook up to high speed, it’s not advantageous for them to set up shop,” Lowry said. “It means a lot not only to people who want to check their email faster or surf the web fast, but it means a lot to mom-and-pop business and people working out of their homes. It’s a real eye opener just how much high-speed internet and better cell phone access can help someone who wants to expand their business. And you can live anywhere to do that, once you have that access.” In exchange for allowing Xplornet to build the tower, the Township will get a monthly payment of $548.83, and a one-time payment of $3,000, as well as paying any increase in property tax assessment due to the placement of the tower. The Township can also put up its own communications receiver on the tower if it so chooses and Xplornet will also provide internet service to the Utilities Department offices at the Millhaven garage site. Lowry said Xplornet wanted to build the tower right in Bath, but Township council and staff balked at that notion, and between the company and municipal officials, settled on the Millhaven garage site.

Do you have a Charity Child?
Make your community part of your family. When thinking about preparing a Will most individuals divide their estate among their immediate family. They want to be sure that they can provide for the needs of their loved ones. What people may not consider are the possible tax consequences to this decision. Individuals often worry that the tax burden placed on their estate will prevent their children from inheriting all that they should. Some feel it’s not their problem—“the children will work it out.” Consider this question, “If you had a choice to give a portion of your estate to the government in tax or leave a gift to charity”, which one would you prefer? The answer is probably obvious, but it might still be difficult to know how to make the gift a reality. One creative way to give to charity is to include a ‘Charity Child’ in your Will planning. Including a ‘Charity Child’ could be of real benefit to those who are interested in providing for their loved ones, leaving a legacy to their community and limiting their estate to the exposure of estate taxes*. Here’s an example: Through careful estate planning a family with three children divides their estate into quarters, leaving the last quarter to go to not-for-profits or charities that have touched their lives. Upon the passing of both parents, the Will outlines that each child will receive one quarter of their parent’s estate. The fourth quarter is dedicated to the Charity Child and directed to the causes that are dearest to their hearts. By placing a charitable bequest in one’s Will, the estate will benefit and receive a charitable tax receipt for the gift. This will help to offset any taxes payable to the government. The children will still receive the portion of the estate generously left for them as well. What is also very important is the children can celebrate their parents’ legacy of making a difference in the community through their philanthropic dreams. As a society we are wealthy beyond measure and one of the greatest gifts we can give to our children is the gift of philanthropy and a legacy of helping others. How do you want to be remembered? Please consider making a difference in the lives that follow.

In Our Opinion
Earth 2.0 could be right next door
Thankful thoughts from new Heritage scribe Jim Barber REPORTER Heritage Editorial - Since my editor Hollie and I alternate the writing of these columns from one week to the next, this is my shot at penning a Thanksgiving-related missive before the day itself comes around. Granted, it seems that as time passes, this holiday is more about having a long weekend before the snow flies, gathering with family and friends and carbing out on stuffing and potatoes, later falling asleep in the easy chair when the tryptophan from the turkey kicks in, than it is about being thankful and counting our blessings. But I still like to spend at least a few moments at this time of year reflecting on the things in my life for which I am grateful. Sometimes I get pretty specific … like right now. For the 2013 edition of my moment of Thanksgiving existentialist self-indulgence, I want to focus on the mere fact that you are reading these words within the pages of the Kingston Heritage at all. This alone is a source of immense and quite profound gratitude. I thought I was done with this business – the newspaper business. I had put in just a hair short of 20 years of my heart, soul, blood, sweat and tears (great band by the way) as a working journalist. After I found myself in the unemployment line for the second time in my career because of nothing more than a decision by corporate bean counters, I figured that was it. Move
on to something else. See if my skills were transferable, or practice my ‘do you want fries with that?’ line. I spent 10 months trying to set up a couple of little enterprises, with only middling success. But I learned a lot. I learned a lot about small business. I learned about marketing, about the communications business. I learned about revamping resumes and cover letters. I learned how to motivate my sorry butt to get up at a decent hour in the morning and be productive, even when there wasn’t a whole lot to do. And even though my plans didn’t quite turn out the way I had hoped, I am thankful for all that I learned. Frankly, I learned that as much as I love my cozy but cluttered little domicile, it was getting pretty aggravating and claustrophobic spending 22 or more hours a day in it. But I was still adamant that I was done as a full-time journalist. My days of coming into an office and bashing out stories, doing phone interviews with interesting local folks, rock stars, sports figures, leading politicians and living at that frenetic, caffeine-boosted pace were part of my past. Well, never say never folks. Off of the scrap heap I was plucked … for the second time in my life and career. I was encouraged to apply for the position for which I am currently employed, working as a staff writer (my sensitive ego prefers that title to that of ‘reporter’ for some reason) for The Kingston Heritage and Frontenac Gazette. And it was one of my smarter moves. The chance to work at a paper that is completely focused on covering the amazingly vibrant Kingston community was a draw. But it was more

about the chance to work with Hollie PrattCampbell that was the most potent reason for jumping back into the business. Now, I am not sucking up to my new editor by saying what I am about to say. I don’t do ‘sycophant’ very well. It’s not in my nature to curry favour. But the opportunity to work with one of the best writers in the area, and someone who has a clear vision for what she wants to do with this newspaper and website was too good to pass up. She is giving me the chance to cover the local arts and entertainment scene, which I love. I am covering hockey again on a regular basis, which is beyond cool. (If you recall my previous column, I am a little passionate about our national sport). But it’s the reawakening of my passion for this business, this craft (I still think of it as a craft, even if some of the big corporations that own newspapers no longer do … not naming names of course), for which I am truly grateful. I know it’s kind of pithy and sentimental to say that I have rediscovered a meaning and purpose to my life, but when you are doing what you are supposed to be doing, it just feels right, and lots of other pieces to the puzzle come together. So a big thanks to Hollie. Hopefully I won’t give her cause to regret her choice of underling. And I am also thankful for the comments and good wishes I have already been getting from readers of The Heritage. It’s very much appreciated. Happy Thanksgiving to you all. Don’t drink and drive over the long weekend --- or at any time. - Jim Barber is the staff writer for The Kingston Heritage. Contact him at 613546-8885 ext 209.

8 The Kingston EMC - Thursday, October 3, 2013
Heritage Editorial - Wormholes and warp speed will have to wait. This year’s World Space Week centres on our celestial next door neighbour, the planet Mars. World Space Week is an international holiday taking place Oct. 4 - 10, which corresponds to two important dates in space exploration history: the Oct. 4, 1957 launch of the first manmade satellite into space, Sputnik, and the Oct. 10, 1967 Outer Space Treaty, which forbids the weaponization of space, and any government from claiming a celestial resource such as a moon, asteroid or planet. Mars’ reddish hue has captured the imaginations of earth-bound observers since antiquity, with its iron oxide-laced soil conjuring visions of an angry god. At the beginning of the 21st century, the red planet appears closer to humanity’s grasp than ever with the Curiosity Rover exploring a bit of Red Planet every day and another fly-by mission scheduled for 2018. In addition, multiple organizations around the world planning the first manned missions, even laying the ground work for colonization. Outside of Earth, Mars is widely held to be the most habitable planet in the solar system. Indeed, many astronomers now believe that Mars once had an Earth-like environment, with flowing lakes and rivers and a much thicker atmosphere. The existence of large quantities of water in the form of permafrost has now been confirmed by robotic explorations. This has led to proposals that humans begin the process of terraforming the red-planet (i.e. attempting to give Mars an earthlike atmosphere, thereby making it conducive to life). Of course, there are several problems to overcome. Scientists are not sure how or even if human beings can survive for extended periods of time in gravity almost one third that of Earth. Moreover, Mars currently lacks a magnetosphere, which makes retaining an atmosphere much more difficult, and scientists are unsure if human beings could withstand prolonged exposure to solar radiation. We would like to encourage our readers to participate in this year’s space week by following the events and discussions occurring online. We invite local educators to inspire students with amazing but true facts from another world. Above all, we encourage youth to dream of a day when our descendants will breathe the pristine air of a lush green Martian paradise, transformed by our limitless imagination and ingenuity.

plant being constructed in order to test a few key possible fuel sources. In conjunction with the plant’s 40th anniversary celebration, an open house is taking place on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the plant. Thousands of visitors are expected to not only enjoy some fun activities, but also see the progress of the plant, and learn more about the Cement 2020 project. HGTV host Bryan Baeumler will also be on hand, as well as the Lafarge mascot Rocky. Visitors will get tours of the plant, as well as a chance to see some of the big vehicles used at the facility. Three days later, on Oct. 8, a formal public meeting is being held at the Loyalist Country Club in Bath from 7 to 9 p.m. to launch the Environmental Screening Process (ESP) under the auspices of the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. “It’s very exciting for us. We’re at the point now where we’re about to start some of the full-scale testing. We’ve got the equipment installed; the pilot plant system is close to being finished. So we’re officially starting the demonstration phase, and that’s where we really want the public’s involvement,” said Robert Cumming, environment and public affairs manager for Lafarge Canada, in an interview with The Kingston Heritage. “We already have our research team lined up. We’ve got Queen’s, WWF Canada, Pollution Probe – they are already engaged and have been working for several years on this program.” Sustainability was the primary reason why Lafarge has taken the lead amongst similar companies in North America in trying to come up with better ways to heat their plant. According to Cumming, Lafarge is doing the same thing as other
companies and even regular home owners – taking responsibility for reducing their own carbon emissions. “We know as an industry we’re going to have to replace our current fuels with low-carbon fuels. If we’re able to do that, from an economic perspective, we keep our plant sustainable and keep the great jobs that we have here in this area. We are very proud to be one of the manufacturing facilities that has stuck around here and thrived in Southeastern Ontario. And we plan to stay here for a long time,” Cumming said. Lafarge said if they can replace the coal and petroleum coke coming in from the United States with a more environmentally-friendly product that comes from the local market, that means millions of dollars that are now riding the rails south of the border will be spent here. Cumming estimates that upwards of 20 jobs or more might be created, not at the plant, but with the company or companies supplying the fuel materials. Whatever fuel is used, it needs to heat the kilns up to 1450 degrees Celsius in order to basically ‘melt’ the stone to create the cement. “Our kiln is two stories high and two football fields long. So if people are thinking of an oven in a kitchen, it’s completely off the scale, but it’s essentially the same process,” Cummings said. The partnership between private industry, government (both federal and provincial governments are providing some funding for Cement 2020) environmental groups and the community is the new model for growth and development in the 21st century, said Cumming. “That’s the new sustainability model. It’s truly a partnership. You’re not going out into the community and saying, ‘hey,
I want to do this and that, okay?’ You’re going out with your community by your side and saying, ‘here’s our challenge as a team, what is the best path forward?’” he said. As for the products that will be tested as potential fuel sources, there are three primary ones that will be immolated in the demonstration plant. The results will be scrutinized with a fine-toothed comb. One is railroad ties. “They’re made up of about 85 to 90 per cent kiln-dried wood. And then there is creosote, which is distilled from coal – which we’re already using. The creosote increases the heating value of the ties so they are better fuel. They combust at a higher temperature. Then there are used roofing shingles. They are made from petroleum products, and we already use petroleum coke. But there is a lot of paper in them as well. A study from the U.S. shows that there was about 50 per cent less carbon emissions from burning shingles than coal. Railway ties is about 90 per cent lower than coal and construction and demolition materials, which is the third potential fuel source, has about 95 per cent lower emissions than coal,” Cumming explained. The public meeting on Oct. 8 will feature company representatives, as well as spokespeople and experts representing the other Cement 2020 partners. They will collectively answer questions from the public. Once the demonstration plant is up and running, Lafarge will test the fuel sources for two to three years, making the results public as part of the ongoing environmental assessment process.

City of Kingston offers $60K subsidy to launch accessible taxi service By Bill Hutchins Reporter
Heritage News – Not everyone can hail a cab in Kingston, even if they have the money. The city does not have taxis that can transport people with physical disabilities, such as those in power wheelchairs. But that could soon change. After years of discussion, Kingston is planning to put up to three accessible taxis on the roads with a $60,000 municipal subsidy to help purchase specially-equipped vehicles and train the drivers. Councillors voted 9-2 at their Sept. 24 meeting to approve the subsidy, which is in the form of a ‘forgivable loan’ between the city and the arm’s length Kingston Taxi Commission. “The Kingston Taxi Commission fully intends to repay the forgivable loan,” said Coun. Sandy Berg, council’s sole representative on the commission. Most councillors say it’s a worthwhile investment to benefit those with mobility issues. “It’s a relatively small investment for a relatively large return,” said Coun. Rob Hutchison. “It’s an important piece of the whole puzzle for accessibility in our community,” agreed Coun. Dorothy Hector. The $60,000 will not come from city taxes, but rather a special municipal fund that collects fine revenues from motorists who illegally park in handicapped spaces. Two councillors, Rick Downes and Jim Neill, voted against making the investment because they say the city should not be subsidizing the private taxi industry. “I’d be much happier if the industry stepped up,” said Coun. Neill. Coun. Downes says he supports the need for on-demand accessible cabs, but is concerned
cab companies themselves do not seem to be embracing the idea. “I am talking a little bit about (the cab industry’s) attitude here.” The high cost to purchase, equip and, later, replace high mileage vehicles to transport disabled passengers has long been considered a major barrier to the city’s physically disabled residents. The tax-funded Kingston Access Bus service doesn’t operate 24 hours a day and must be booked days, even weeks, in advance. Coun. Berg says the taxi commission - the body that regulates the industry - approved a bylaw Sept. 11 to sell three accessible licenses as part of a three year pilot project. While the provincial government does not make accessible cabs mandatory, it is part of the city’s own accessibility policy to offer the service by 2015. “We need to abide by our commitments to the province. This is a means to roll out this program to service needs within the community.” The $60,000 forgivable loan - $20,000 allocated to each cab - will be returned if the licenses are not purchased, she added. Mayor Mark Gerretsen says increasing cab fares across-the-board to raise money for the accessible service is not the solution. “We need to keep the prices the same.” A fare hike of only 5-cents will be enough to drive some customers away, he added. The mayor also says governments routinely assist private companies in offering a service, and the one-time $60,000 investment will go a long way to bringing independence to those with mobility issues. He says the access taxi debate has gone on for at least seven years. “I’m just glad to see something come to fruition.” Coun. Kevin George says Kingston’s $60,000 investment in accessible cabs is a worthwhile venture. “For me it’s a question of equality. I think it’s the right thing to do.”

Goldsmithing as an occupation dates back many centuries, and historic techniques and traditions span many continents. You can visit museums around the globe to see and study artwork, artifacts and jewellery designed throughout the centuries by highly skilled Goldsmiths. Have you ever wanted to experience these ancient techniques, and tap into your inner Goldsmith? You can, just by taking a jewellery making class. Historically, Goldsmiths differed from those who worked with other base metals. Goldsmithing and metal work offers a great deal of insight into traditional customs. As a common organizational practice, guilds were created for those who worked with gold, silver, and other metals. These trades and their workers didn’t often overlap, unlike metal working practices today. Also, professional Goldsmiths didn’t just specialize in jewellery design, as one might think. These workers designed platters, goblets, religious and ceremonial artifacts. They were, and still are, very skilled at filing, sawing, soldering, gorging and casting gold into a variety of decorative forms. If these historic techniques and tra-
ditions interest you, you can delve into this ancient art form through a jewellery-making course. Today, classes provide an introduction, not just to working with gold, but also to working with a number of different metals. To begin your journey, you can choose a class that will introduce you to and give you the opportunity to learn how to work with gold, gems, and other metals. You may also want to look for a class in which you will have the opportunity to practice the following: • Filing – shaping, refining, or removing defects from a piece of metal • Soldering – joining together two pieces of metal • Sawing – cutting and shaping • Forging – using a hammer and stake to shape a piece of metal • Casting - pouring liquid metal into a mould to make different pieces of jewellery Taking a jewellery-making course is a fun and exciting way to learn new skills, while exploring ancient techniques and traditions.

Local libraries are meeting the challenge of the Twitter age head on The folks running the library recognized a number of years ago that they had to have their feet firmly planted in two worlds â€“ the Heritage Lifestyle - In the age when word of paper, bricks and mortar, as well people are spending more and more time as the virtual, digital world â€“ if they were communicating, researching and being going to continue to bring a diverse group entertained on personal electronic devices, of people through the doors of its nine one would think that venerable institutions branches. â€œLooking back to when the internet startsuch as public libraries, with their stacks and stacks of books and periodicals, would be ed being more widely used by the commuslowly slipping into irrelevancy as the 21st nity, we did notice a decline in the number of people coming in and asking us to find century moves along.

things are available for people doing more in-depth research and who need more than just the basics. We have lots of great stuff that people can access. And I think one of the reasons going digital has been so good is because life is so much busier and people are so much busier. People need to access us when it works for them, and being physically open 24/7 with the building isnâ€™t feasible. But online, through our web services, we can,â€? Sutherland-Mills explained. Library users can download eBooks and audio books for free through a service called OverDrive, and the is also a program called Tumble Books which is web-based, but not downloadable, which allows people to read and listen to books anywhere they have access to the internet. â€œTwo of the newest things that we have added are Zinio and Freegal. Zinio of-
fers digital magazine subscriptions. We have about 100 titles and if you were to go through their commercial site, there would be a fee. But through the library you can subscribe for free to things like Canadian Living or MacLeans. You can download each issue onto your computer or tablet and read it totally for free. And Freegal is a free, legal music downloading site. You get three new songs a week and once you download them, theyâ€™re yours. We still have the CDs and we still have the books and encyclopedias on the shelves, but we are also ensuring these resources are available digitally too.â€? Libraries are also still community meeting places and centres for culture. Many community and service organizations take advantage of the variety of meeting spaces available at the branches, and SutherlandMills said any time there is planning for new branches or renovations for existing branches, community space is always a significant part of the discussion. The Central Branch at 130 Johnson St. also hosts art exhibitions and displays on a regular basis. And lest you think that libraries in the 21st century have forgotten about actual, physical books, Sutherland-Mills assures everyone that this is not the case. â€œPeople still read books. Itâ€™s still our core function for literacy and reading development. A couple of our new programs continue to show how popular books are, and how important talking about books is. We have Books & Beers and Books & Beans once a month. These are book clubs out in the community. At the Loyal Oarsman we had 30 people show up the first night, and 18 came to Coffee & Co. for Books & Beans. People are leaving these get-togethers and are excited and asking if we can do them more often,â€? she said, adding that this is part of a strategy of taking the library out into the community in a very active and vi-
brant manner. â€œWe want to raise our profile to make people aware of the library, getting out there and making people aware of the diversity of the services. We were at the Multicultural Festival and people came up to us saying, â€˜I love the library. I am at the library all the time.â€™ We want to be more active in the community so thatâ€™s why we are putting so many programs out there to try and capture the imagination of residents.â€? The library has forged a successful partnership with the Kingston Frontenacs that sees one home game each season dedicated to the library. Players pose for a promotional poster that encourages reading, and someone from the library participates in a ceremonial puck drop. In addition, there is an information booth on the concourse at the Rogers K-Rock Centre throughout the game. The library had outreach workers at Artfest earlier in the summer and will also be at the Battersea Pumpkin Festival. In all, between online, in-house and outreach, the Kingston Frontenac Public Library offers more than 1,000 programs. â€œWe actually restructured the operations of the library system to create a separate programming and outreach group because we realize this has to be a focus for us now and in the future,â€? said Sutherland-Mills. She said all of this has lead to a diverse group of library users, from young families participating in the many kidsâ€™ programs, to students and tourists coming in to avail themselves of the free Wi-Fi service, to seniors perusing the bookshelves for the latest mystery novel and thousands of others using the host of easily-accessible digital services.

The future of energy conservation on display at Kingston Passive House By Hollie Pratt-Campbell firstname.lastname@example.org
Heritage Lifestyle - Imagine a super energy-efficient home that has the ability to save an owner up to 80 to 90 per cent in energy costs compared with a typical house. This sort of standard has been well established in Europe for the past 15 years, and it’s coming to the Limestone City in the form of Kingston’s first “Passive House”, which is currently being built at 5 College View Crescent. “Passive House takes a building to a level just beyond where it doesn’t need a furnace anymore,” says Chris vanderZwan of New Leaf Custom Homes, who initiated the project alongside his business partner, Helene Kommel, owner of Komelot Land and Homes. “It still needs a heat source, but it’s a much smaller heat source. So in fact you’re going to heat the house just by post-heating the fresh air coming in through the heat recovery ventilator (HRV).” VanderZwan explains that stale air is drawn from rooms throughout the house; a heat exchanger then extracts energy from it, and passes it on to fresh air that is brought in from outside. “So in the wintertime we just add a little more heat to that fresh air that comes through the HRV, and that’s enough to heat this home,” he says. “This house is 3,100 square feet just for the main and upper floors, and to
heat this house is about 4,300 watts, or about three hair dryers.” While the cost of building a Passive House is significantly larger than your average custom built home – about seven to 12 per cent, to be exact – vanderZwan says that the extra cost will eventually be made up by the energy savings. “Your mortgage payment will be a little higher, but it’s offset by your lower energy costs...Then once your mortgage is paid for or as energy costs rise, it’ll pay you back that much faster.” Kommel is the official owner of the home. She says that it’s important to distinguish Passive House from renewable energy projects. “What I like to say about conservation is that the most renewable, sustainable, green unit of energy is the one you don’t have to use in the first place,” she says. “I have nothing against people putting solar panels on their roof, that’s wonderful. “In this case, it wouldn’t be economically intelligent for me to do that because the house uses so little. Passive House doesn’t concern itself with the generation of energy, it’s the conservation of it.” She adds that this house is also different from other seemingly similar local projects, such as the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certified Harvesting House, which is based on a number of factors, many of which have nothing to do with

The next one will be held Oct. 5 from 1 to 4 p.m., in conjunction with the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association’s annual doors open event. “I’d like people to come and see what we’re doing here, and understand that the total cost of ownership of this house would be the same

energy efficiency. “LEED is concerned with urban development generally, and that you are building where you’re near to other community services,” Kommel says. “You’re penalized if the house too big for number of people in it, [etc.]. It has more of a social conscience, not a sole focus on conservation and reduction of energy use.” While LEED is a prescriptive standard, meaning builders get a certain number of points for certain features, Passive House is a performance based standard. “It doesn’t really matter how you do it, as long as you’re good enough in the end,” Kommel says. VanderZwan emphasizes that Passive House features are not only for new houses, and that the concept can be used to retrofit older homes as well. “Every detail of this house is in a Passive House software system and it computes the energy use. You can use that same software and put it in an existing house and actually retrofit the house to the Passive House standard. Now the results are a little less - you can’t take an existing house and get it to this level – but improving the efficiency of existing structures has got to be another aspect.” Kommel and vanderZwan expect Passive House will be completed by the end of the year. It will then need to be certified by CANPHI (Cana-

Kingston Photography Meetup - a chance to learn by doing Heritage Lifestyle - About a year and a half ago, Steve Brule started Photography Meetup in Kingston. The Meetup concept started in New York City. There are now more than 126,000 groups around the world and it’s growing at a rate of almost 10,000 new groups a month. Group specialties are diverse and range from cooking to photography. There is a monthly fee to run a group through Meetup. The New York organization provides web space and a prefab site design to those starting a group. Like a true artist, Steve Brule is passionate about his creativity. In his case, it’s images created by cameras. He started early.
“For a birthday present when I was quite young I got a Polaroid camera,” he said. “For my next camera, my brother and I went in together to buy it.” It was a twin lens reflex camera, a great tool for learning photography skills. He joined the photography club at Woodroffe High School in Ottawa. He’s spent much of his professional career in chemistry and designing information management systems for laboratories. Some of his work involved contracts from the Federal Government. That took him to Ottawa, where he hooked up with the Ottawa Photography Meetup group.
With the corporate world in a constant downsizing mode, Brule decided it was time to give photography, videography and film making a chance. “In film production, you struggle and struggle and then one day you’re in a limousine on your way to the Oscars,” he said. “You have to have a sense of humor and you have to take big personal risks. You have to invest something of your personal life experience and you’ll be vulnerable. Most people can’t imagine or create a story, but they recognize a good one when they see it. Most people are surprisingly good at recognizing a good story that rings true. It’s a tragedy but our culture and socialization kills R0012335943_1003

people’s imaginations.” Brule wanted to create an opportunity for photographers in the Kingston region to meet and explore many topics and skills. It’s not classroom based. Recent subjects for the Kingston Photography Meetup group have included ballerinas in a dance studio, Run or Dye, street portraits and models. It’s an idea that’s taken off. I sat in on a session recently. A group of ten photographers had an opportunity to create images working with a group of ballerinas at the Kingston School of Dance. There were setup shots, which are the least challenging. There were also lots of action shots with dancers constantly in motion and sometimes flying
through the air. It’s never easy getting good dance action shots. Participants figured that out quickly. But at the end of three hours, a fine collection of dance photographs had been created. It’s a great learning situation. Aside from the basics of understanding the physics of light and camera operations, you do not learn photography in a classroom. You’ll learn more in a day from a good mentor on the street than in a year in a classroom. The Kingston Photography Meetup group had more than 50 members within a few weeks of its launch. “Part of the strength of the group Continued on page 23

In the heart and soul of the artist was drawing everything realistically and he wanted me to do some abstract painting.” The teacher examined her painting. She was still not in a comfortable spot as she waited for his impression. “I hate critiques,” she said. “No one can tell me what my heart and soul should be. But my teacher said he couldn’t critique anything about it and gave me 100%. So even though other people told me I drew well, I did a whole bunch of jobs not related to art through my life. But my mom got sick in 2003 and I started to work at home and then I did a whole lot more art.” Murphy took a transcribing course and landed a two-week stint at CFB Kingston. She was then asked if she’d work at home doing transcriptions for the military. She also transcribes for media companies, law enforcement, lawyers and private clients. She still does transcription. It was the perfect arrangement for her. She worked at home, cared for her mom, did her artwork and single-parented her son. “My mother and son have more meaning to me than driving a nice car,” she said. “My quality of life was so much better because I was doing things important to me.” Her mother passed away in August, 2011. “I just turned 49 and that time of year still hits me really hard,” she said. Many of her early memories furthered her artistic inspiration. “I was hard to feed as a kid,” she said. “I had to sit at the table until I finished my food. I observed everything around me, the shadows, when someone moved. I can’t put my finger on it, but sometimes I wake up and I’m driven to paint. Sometimes there’s something in my head and I picture it. It comes out and I paint it.” There’s a certain irony to the fact that the kind of painting Murphy most feared when she started, abstract, is where she’s most successful. “I don’t think

Heritage Lifestyle - Colleen Murphy’s artistic passion goes back as far as her memories. “I never had formal training,” she said. “I don’t recall ever not doing it.” But early in her life, an event occurred which amplified art’s importance. She got tangled in a loop of her dog’s leash. “Blackie pulled and I broke my leg,” Murphy said. “I was in a full body cast on both legs and up my body to my arms. There was nothing to do for six weeks. My mom gave me crayons and paper.” Any creativity already present was certainly enhanced. “Anyone who remembers me as a kid remembers me drawing. My artwork is so different. I never went to school for it, maybe that’s why.” Murphy was born in Pembroke but moved to St. Catharines when she was two. When she was 13, the family moved to Petawawa. “It was beautiful there,” she said. “But it was a bit of a culture shock. There was a beach down the street and I had a Newfoundland dog. We used to walk in the woods, write poetry and go to the beach and draw.” There were more moves, back and forth from Kingston to Petawawa. In 1994, she got a job at a sign shop in Kingston. She’s been here since. “All I did as a kid was draw,” she said. “I didn’t paint much until I was in high school in Pembroke. My teacher made me go to a spot I was not comfortable with. I

Unique music festival all about experimentation By Jim Barber Staff Writer
Heritage Entertainment - If you are looking for a spectacularly diverse and one-of-a-kind visual, aural and mind expanding experience, you are well-advised to attend the shows being presented as part of the 12thannual Tone Deaf Adventurous Sound Performance Festival. Running over four consecutive nights, Oct. 17 to Oct. 20, the festival features genre-defying musical experiences that regularly skirt, transcend and shatter preconceived conventions on what a musical performance is, and what it can become. “I think what we present is sound art or music that does not follow a lot of the rules of music as we are accustomed to. A lot of it does not follow the structures that most people are familiar with. So it’s often not based around music theory. Sometimes the artist will pick and choose different elements of conventional music, such as focusing on dynamics, and could have no concern for melody or harmony,” said Tone Deaf organizer Daniel Darch, who went to the first festival as a fan back in 2001. “In some cases the performances are just for the pleasure of sound. It’s not really about music, but it’s more about the physics of sound. Like Alvin Lucier [whose music was the subject
Ensemble SuperMusique is one of the headliners performing as part of Tone Deaf 12, which takes place later this month. of an entire evening of performances at a past Tone Deaf], his music is about exploring the acoustic space with very very simple minimalist sounds like sine waves and things like that. When you have such basic sounds, such pure sounds, you start to notice all kinds of acoustic phenomena.” Darch stressed that the shows, all of which take place at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, at the corner of Clergy and Princess Streets, are truly multimedia presentations, featuring
visual art, video and dance. Each of the four nights is dedicated to a different theme. The first night, Oct. 17, “is based around musicians who use computers and software, and I think it will have, overall, a fairly ambient feel and very drone-like. So that night will be a night of very minimalist music.” Vancouver’s Loscil will feature drone-based electronica, while Toronto resident Neil Wiernik presents what is described as an “immersive

audiovisual study on the silliness of sound.” One of the festival’s longtime organizers and supporters, Matt Rogalsky, will also present his own “meditation on the hum and buzz of reconstructed guitars.” “On the second night, there will be a screening of the 1922 silent film Nanook of the North, which is an Inuit documentary, and Tanya Tagaq is going to be live throat chanting as its soundtrack. There will be a drummer and violinist with her. And I think it’s going to be pretty improvised. And what she does is more than music. There’s a whole tradition behind it, and it’s kind of performance art too, because it’s very visual with the dancers and very intense,” said Darch, who added that the third night, Oct. 19, might feature the closes thing to conventional music with Kingdom Shore from Ottawa and headliners Ensemble SuperMusique from Montreal. “They are a rotating collective that is does what is called ‘musique actuelle’ and I think we would see that as more free jazz or improvised jazz.” Also featured that night is Happiness, an artist who creates jazzinspired political noise. “The final night is an evening of synthesizer music, using the vintage synthesizers, like analog synths from the 1970s. And the sounds you will

hear are reminiscent of 1970s German ambient music and 1990s electronica. There will be video art as well,” Darch explained. Steve Hauschildt is the headline performer on Oct. 20. He used to be a member of the influential experimental synthesizer group Emeralds, which was popular earlier in the 2000s. Hauschildt has since gone solo. Also on the bill that evening are Le Revelateur from Montreal and Kingston’s own Fire Moss. “We’re happy that everything is at St. Andrew’s. It’s a new venue for us and I think that’s exciting. It’s a downtown location and it’s a nice acoustic space. Last year we did two nights at Chalmers United Church and we found that it was really nice having them in a church. It offers a nice atmosphere and the sound is amazing.” For more information on the show, visit http://tone-deaf.org.

Veteran Steele By Jim Barber Staff Writer
Heritage Sports - Heading into the 2013-2014 Ontario Hockey League season, there was only a handful of players on the roster who had been part of the Kingston Frontenacs since a massive rebuilding effort began two years previously. When Doug Gilmour became general manager of the Frontenacs and brought in head coach Todd Gill, there was a grand design to dismantle the team and reconstruct it from the ground up. That first season was a struggle. The second season, 2012-2013, saw the team swoon in the second half of the season after a solid start, barely eking into the playoffs. But the coaches, management and players stuck to the plan and it appears to have paid off, as Kingston is seen as the team to beat in the OHL Eastern Conference, at least in the 2013-2014 pre-season prognostications. One of the soldiers whose commitment to the team has never wavered through the sometimes challenging retooling period is talented two-way defenceman Warren Steele. The 19-year-old native of Williamsburg, Ontario actually played a handful of games in 2010-2011, when Gilmour was still the coach, and then played the entire 20112012 campaign, not missing a game and showing his offensive prowess with seven goals and 22 assists. But he was also a -18, meaning there were some holes in the defensive end of his game. Last season, he scored five times and added 23 helpers and his plus/ minus rating improved to -9 on a team that surrendered 273 goals against, second worst in the conference. Coach Gill said Steele has both heart and skill, but sometimes his desire to jump into the play to
contribute offensively gets him in trouble. “He is a veteran guy that we’re expecting to come in and work some serious minutes for us on both the power play and penalty kill. He is capable of doing everything we expect of him, but Steele’s biggest problem sometimes is that he tries to overdo it a little bit. But if he is on his game, he is one of the best two-way defencemen in this league,” said the coach after a recent game. “We want him to jump into the play. He is a very good skater, a good offensive player. We want him to jump in and add that extra offence, but at the right time. And for the most part, especially this season, he has been doing that. He has become very reliable defensively, and is very valuable for us on special teams.” Gill also said it makes him and the other coaches feel good that the Frontenacs are doing so well this season and have a chance to do something special. It means the hard work and dedication of the likes of Steele, Jean Dupuy and Darcy Greenaway – players who have been through the tough times of the past couple of years - are being rewarded. “They went through some pretty bad times to get to where we are now, and I am glad that they are still here to be able to enjoy them,” said Gill. For his part, Steele said that even during the tough times, he never allowed his commitment to the team or his work ethic waver. “You really just took it game to game, and always played and practiced as hard as you could. I never gave up because you never know what can happen over a long season. Like last year when Peterborough made a late run and almost knocked us out of our playoff position. That proved that the season is not over until the last buzzer. I think you’ve
Veteran Frontenacs defenceman Warren Steele provides both offensive prowess and defensive solidity to the team’s back end. Photo/John Harman always got to play every game like it’s your last in this league, because you never know. I just battled through all the adversity as best I could,” said Steele, in an interview with Kingston Heritage, adding that he knew the brain trust at the top of the organization had an effective plan to turn the franchise’s on-ice fortunes around. “We have a great management staff up there, and they had a blueprint from day one. They knew what year they were going to build for, and when we were going to be a skilled team. They made the right moves and they also knew that we had a really good batch of young players coming up.” Steele described himself as a player who leads by example. Because of his lengthy tenure with the Frontenacs, he knows the young players and new acquisitions look to him.
“The way I lead is by doing every aspect of the game to the best of my ability. I really like to lead by example. You don’t always have to speak up in the dressing room. If you’re doing the right things on and off the ice, they younger guys are going to follow suit,” Steele said. He also knows that Gill and the other coaches have expectations of him continuing to be a leader on and off the ice. “The coach wants me to be one of the leaders on the back end. I think my strengths are being a solid, two-way defenceman, using my speed and skating to make a quick first pass and then jump into the play if need be. And also he wants me to be shutting down their top forward lines when we are on the penalty kill,” said Steele, who appreciates having a former 18-year NHL veteran defenceman as his head coach.
“Over the years he has done a lot of work with me on my timing on when to jump into the play. Sometimes he has to put the reins on me to not go all the time, and he has shown me that I don’t need to jump up that much because we’re not going to have a problem scoring goals. [Coach Gill] has been through the grind of 18 years in the NHL and he knows what he is talking about. He stuck around that long because he knows what needs to be done. I know he wants to bring some of that experience to our game and all of us on the blue line are trying to pick up some of the little tricks that he knows.” Steele said he wants to go as far as he can in hockey, but is also planning for his future and is taking courses at Queen’s University.

New Vees goalie already loving life in Limestone City Heritage Sports - It’s a given in the hockey world that one of the key components to building a successful team is having goaltending that is steady, solid, sometimes spectacular and that has the ability to single-handedly yank victory from the jaws of impending defeat. Kingston Voyageurs management and coaching staff feel they got just that when they signed 18-year-old Burlington, ON native Alex BrooksPotts during training camp. And over the early portion of the season it appears to have been a brilliant signing as the unflappable netminder won his first four starts, surrendering just four goals (averaging one per game) over that span and with a sparkling .961 save percentage. “Alex was in the GOJHL(Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League), which is a very strong Junior B league down in southwestern Ontario, where he played for Stoney Creek. He was the rookie of the year and goalie of the month for three of the last four months of last season,” said head coach Colin Birkas, in a previous interview with the Kingston Heritage. Brooks-Potts was encouraged to try out for Kingston over the summer by Vees veteran and newly-minted team captain Mike Casale, who is from nearby Hamilton and also played with Stoney Creek earlier in his career. “Mike said it was a great team to play for, so I came here and luckily I made the team. Obviously this has been a great organization over the years and
they really want to win. I like that the goal of this team is to win games and take it as far as you can,” said the wellspoken Brooks-Potts, who said he has already developed a great affinity for Kingston and its hockey fans. “I can’t thank Kingston enough for the great experience I have already had so far. I have been able to check out the city a bit and it’s been nice. It’s a great city with great people, and the fans have been amazing. We met the season ticket holders recently and they are all very nice people, and very dedicated. It’s great to have the kind of support that this team has. It’s great to play at home when you have that kind of support in the stands. “Everyone is working hard and we’re all focusing on how to improve individually and as a team. It always helps having fans that want us to do well, who expect us to do well. That added pressure helps push the players to improve their game.” As for Brooks-Potts’ game between the pipes, he describes himself as a ‘hybrid’ goaltender who mixes both the butterfly and stand-up style. “At the end of the day, you have to stop the puck. As a kid I really worked on my technique, trying to be square to everything. But as you grow up and become more experienced you learn to adapt and there are times when it may not look pretty, but as long as you stock the puck, that’s what matters. If you make the save, then you’ve done your job,” he explained. “I think the strength of my game is my speed and positioning. And I have been working hard on my hand-eye co-ordination a lot lately, and also my
overall fitness level to try and keep improving my game.” While he said he feels confident stepping out of his crease to handle the puck, he only does so when necessary and tries not to make a habit of it. “I am not the kind of goalie who will go out and handle the puck on every play like [New Jersey Devils legend] Martin Brodeur. But I think when the puck needs to be played, I will play it effectively.” As a child growing up in Burlington, Brooks-Potts started off playing a number of roles. Like many hockey house leagues, the youngsters would try out all positions on the ice. “When it was my turn to be goalie I really liked it, and ever since then I have been a goalie. I used to watch Patrick Roy and really liked him when I started. The Colorado Avalanche was my favourite team when I was a kid because of him. And I also like [Pittsburgh’s] Mark-Andre Fleury and [Montreal’s] Carey Price,” he said. Being a goaltender at any level of hockey means that you are a focal point on the ice. At times, all eyes in the rink are watching you, and in key situations tons of pressure is on the person wearing the big pads to make a game-saving play. Brooks-Potts said he relishes such opportunities and will continue to do so while playing for the Voyageurs. “I have always liked the challenge of being a goalie. There are times when everyone really is looking at you and you are at the centre of all the action and you need to make that save. But I truly like to be the difference maker in a game,” he said.

As for his teammates, Brooks-Potts said he is thrilled with the combination of skill, toughness and commitment he sees on the 2013-2014 Vees squad. “We are very fast, very hard working, very dedicated. Everyone works 100 per cent in practice and in games and we all listen to the coaches. We all come along early to work out. The atmosphere is so good in the dressing room. We all get along and we’re all working hard to make this team a success. And the defence in front of me has been great.

$70 Million Queen’s student dorms Loyalist council waiting for MoE call on pollution plant re-rating get green light from City Hall By Bill Hutchins Reporter
EMC News – Queen’s University is making room to add another 550 students on campus. A contentious zoning bylaw amendment sailed through city council September 24 that allows Queen’s to construct two large student residence buildings. “Together they will provide us with almost 550 additional beds for students of all years, plus an additional dining facility,” said a delighted Dr. Alan Harrison, the university’s provost. He says Queen’s is eager to start construction soon on a nine-storey, 272-bed dorm at 28 Albert Street, plus a five storey, 274-bed dorm at 222 Stuart Street. “Scheduled completion is by summer of 2015 with occupancy by fall 2015.” Coun. Bryan Paterson, who chairs the planning committee, voted in favour of the $70 million development. He says relaxing the height, density and setback rules to accommodate the dual dorms will prevent ‘student creep’ in residential neighbourhoods that surround the campus. “I know there were a few neighbours in the area that were a little concerned but I think overall people prefer to see more students in the existing student village than out in the neighbourhoods.” He says the zoning amendment’s increased density amounts to adding an extra 100 people to an area that already has a high concentration of students. “If it was in an area with families I’d have real concerns with that. But if it’s an area where you already have 1,200, 1,500 or 2,000 students is an extra 100 students really going to make a difference?” Council voted 9-1 in favour of the development.
Coun. Liz Schell cast the lone dissenting vote. She says the development will “loom” over the heritage corridor on King Street, west of Kingston General Hospital. “The building does not add to the streetscape,” she said, referring to the five-storey U-shaped dorm proposed on Stuart Street. Queen’s University is desperate to address a housing crunch on campus, noting some students are currently sleeping in converted lounges or downtown hotel rooms due to a lack of space. Dr. Harrison says building two large residences in the southwest quadrant of campus is an ideal solution. “We just feel it’s the right thing to do, and clearly the council agreed.” He praised the town-gown cooperation. “The approval we received from the city is a testament to careful planning and strong (public) consultation … and also excellent relations with the city including this planning department.” Many neighbours, including MPP John Gerretsen, complained the development is out of scale with the nearby low-rise homes. But project supporters say putting more students on campus will likely relieve pressure on student housing conversions. “The extra space will relieve pressure that our students generate in near-campus neighbourhoods,” explained Dr. Harrison. There has been talk among opponents that the approved bylaw amendment could be appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board. “It’s always a possibility. I haven’t heard anything but I think the council has made the right decision and we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it,” said Coun. Paterson.

Heritage News - In order to help anticipate future residential, commercial and industrial growth in the municipality, Loyalist Township staff has applied to the Approvals Branch of the provincial Ministry of the Environment to expand the capacity of the township’s Water Pollution Control Plant. Located in Amherstview, the plant currently operates at a capacity of 5,700 cubic metres per day. Township officials would like to see that raised to 6,400 cubic metres per day without having to do any renovations or construction on the plant itself. The process began a number of months ago, but is being held up to some extent, because the MoE has concerns with ongoing elevated pH levels at the plant, and wants those sorted out before granting what is known as a ‘re-rating,’ of the facility for the extra 700 cubic metres of liquid. Back in May of 2012, an engineering firm hired by township council determined that the extra capacity could be added without the need to do any construction. The application for the re-rating was sent in to the ministry early in 2013, and its officials replied that there were issues with elevated pH levels
in the effluent existing in the holding lagoons, according to a report presented to council by Jenna Shultz, assistant township engineer, at its regular meeting on Sept. 23. “We’re waiting to hear back from the ministry. Staff was just giving us a heads up as to where we are at in the process. Our staff has always done that with ongoing issues so that we don’t get blindsided by something. And I know I put my faith in the good work of our staff. I have so much confidence in their competence and their responsibility, and so do my colleagues around the table,” said Loyalist Township Mayor Bill Lowry. “The ministry has just identified something that we need to look at. But we have a very good reputation with them. They are always giving kudos to council and our staff about how up front and accommodating we are. The MoE knows we are totally responsible and accountable and this report is part of ongoing communication between their staff and our staff, sorting things out to make sure the plant is safe.” If, in the end, the ministry decides that the pH levels need to be addressed before allowing for the extra 700 cubic metres, Schulz said there were two options before council if they wanted to address the problem.

One is to install UV disinfection, or some other form of active disinfection mechanism, and completely abandon the lagoons, which are used for passive disinfection at present. Or they can delay the expansion until an engineered wetland project, currently being developed with Queen’s University, is completed, which would address the pH concerns too. That process would take about five years. This is the preferable method for town staff, because adding an active disinfection process is expensive and may also mean added staffing costs because it would elevate the plant from a Class 2 to Class 3 facility, meaning more worker training and certification. “If we get this re-rating it allows the township to have more managed growth. We are pretty tight right now. We have a lot of applications from developers and construction companies who want to build here. And very soon in the next few years, we have to decide if we are going to put out some capital outlay to expand, or are we going to sit back and expand at a slower rate. Up until this year, we have been one of the leaders in the province for growth amongst municipalities of this size. It’s happened by leaps and bounds,” said Lowry.

Kingston filmmaker makes short film debut at The Screening Room By:Mandy Marciniak Reporter
Heritage Events – Kingston may not be known as ‘the Hollywood of the North’ like Toronto, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some talented filmmakers in the city. Ilke Hincer is one of these filmmakers, and he hopes that his latest work, a short film entitled Paper Covers Rock, will show viewers that great filmmaking is possible in Kingston. “I am really happy with the film and looking forward to people seeing it and them seeing Kingston and the different locations that are featured in the film,” said Hincer, “I’m also excited to show people that it is actually possible to make these types of movies right here in Kingston.” From a young age, Hincer always envisioned himself acting and being
involved in the arts. Even though life led him to a commerce program at Queen’s, drama and acting were never far from his thoughts. “Drama and theater were always a passion for me, and in university I took every elective drama class that I could. It really kept the creative energy flowing for me,” explained Hincer, “In 1998 I decided it was time for me to move to Toronto. I moved and I got an agent, I took acting courses, I went on auditions. I really honed my abilities and it went really well for me.” After 10 years in Toronto, Hincer decided to move back to Kingston, where he grew up - but that didn’t mean that he wanted to stop acting. Hincer worked on different films, including an adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera by Kingstonian Anthony D.P. Mann, and also directed a couple of music videos; all of these projects went well and
left him wanting more. “At a certain point you want to tell your own stories. I thought before I move onto a feature film of my own, I want to experiment with other formats. I really learned what it was like to tell stories and really enjoyed all of the experience I gained in Toronto. When I moved to Kingston, I kept it going and now I have this 20-minute film to show for it.” The film, while only 20 minutes long, is about life, the interactions we have as human beings and the challenges we face. “It is about love and loss and the stuff that we go through,” added Hincer, “It is a story about people and their lives, about happy moments, about tough times. Someone loses a family member in the story and the other characters deal with that and it’s really about how they deal with it.” Inspiration for the film came from life experiences, but also from what Hincer himself enjoys most in films. “I tend to gravitate towards films that don’t have giant spectacles,” he said. “I like the pared down films that are about the characters and how they appear on screen and the situations they find themselves in. The dialogue should be natural and real. I gravitate towards that when I am watching films and that is what my own film features.” Along with the production of
his film and hopefully future films, a local setting. It’s an opportunity Hincer is also reaching out to the for people to see the talent that Kingston acting community by of- Kingston has to offer.

Ontario Lung Association helps kids get “Asthma Active” which shows children how to control their asthma and stay active. The booklet presents information a colourful, kid-friendly way, teaching children to know their triggers, how to manage their asthma with puffers while being active and more. “I think it’s important that everyone understands what poor asthma control is,” Schooley said. “And once they establish whether their asthma is under good control or not, what can they do about it.” The issue hits close to home for Hsu, who attended the presentation to show his support for the new booklet. “When I was little, if I ran around in the evening in the summer, I would always cough,” he said. “I thought that was normal, but actually it wasn’t normal at all. It’s because I have asthma too. Now it’s very much under control, but I have to be careful if I have a cold or a flu or something. “You kind of learn that as you grow up with it,” Hsu continued. “But for kids who are not aware and who don’t

Heritage News - An alarming statistic shows that one out of every five children in Ontario lives with asthma. But, according to the Lung Association of Ontario, this does not mean they need to sit on the sidelines while their friends are participating in sports. “A big message that we want to send home is that physical activity should not be limited in any way because of your asthma, and if it is that’s a sign of poor asthma control and it needs to be addressed,” said Jessica Schooley, PCAP coordinator at KGH. Schooley joined Ontario Lung Association South Eastern Ontario area manager Kerry McCloy and MP Ted Hsu at St. Joseph/St. Mary Catholic School Sept. 23 to present the Lung Association’s new booklet, Asthma Active, to principal Mark Perrault. Asthma Active is a free book of puzzles, games and information,
know what asthma is, they may not realize what they have or what they need to do to control it. And it can have a big impact on what you’re able to do.” Hsu, whose daughter Ella attends St. Joseph/St. Mary, also noted that it’s beneficial for all students to be aware of asthma and what to do if they notice a friend is in trouble. “It is pretty common, so it’s important to know about it,” Hsu said. “And it’s important to know about your friends who are carrying medication and who might need something if they exercise and aren’t used to asthma. They might need help…I think it’s very good to have that general knowledge.” Following the presentation of the book, Hsu, Schooley and McCloy met with students for a fun, educational St. Joseph/St. Mary principal Mark Perrault, South Eastern Ontario session involving the Asthma Active Lung Association area manager Kerry McCloy, KGH PCAP coordinator booklet.

Frontenac Islands takes up Invitation to borrow from province By Margaret Knott Correspondent
EMC news- At a recent special meeting of Frontenac Islands Council, council dealt with the by-law to authorize the submission of an application to the Ontario Infrastructure and lands Corporation (OILC) requesting financing for certain Frontenac Islands capital works projects, specifically the Wolfe Island arena Roof at an estimated cost of 600,000, (1st and 2nd reading). The application to OILC is seeking long term borrowing through the issue of debentures to OILC and temporary borrowing pending their issuance. The amount of the loan request was $600,000. The resolution received a third reading and was passed. However the actual amount of any loan will be determined at a later date, when the total of dona-
tions is known, and the final costs are fixed by contract. A question was asked regarding lump sum payments of such a loan, and also of any prepayment of the loan. The CAO was to obtain such details for council. Council also passed further resolutions regarding the Wolfe Island rink, as recommended by Project Manager Patrick Thompson, all in an effort to reduce some costs and determine the best bids. For instance they will negotiate with Custom Forming (sole bidder) to determine if savings can be realized to lower the costs of $73,000 for framing (cement) for the rink roof. (discussion is underway with Lafarge). WI Community Centre Board spokesman Paul Hogan was present to speak to the issues, and noted that discussion is underway with Lafarge for a possible lower cement pricing.
They will also be re-issuing the tenders for the steel and erection component, with some modifications to the plans in order to bring that pricing lower. There were 5 original bids received. He pointed out that CCB money has already been raised and received through grants (Trillium, CFDC, Hockeyville, Music Fest etc.) Exciting times….. 2. Further to Wolfe Island Grill owner Casey Fisher’s request for a noise exemption, CAO George Luhowy presented a package of material with regard to noise and hearing outlining effects of db levels on hearing as well. It included Ministry of Labour guidelines ( anything above 85 db’s is not acceptable from a work standpoint etc.) and 3 examples of noise bylaws from other townships and different levels based on times of day and days of week. Village spokesman Ken Keyes reminded
council that the upcoming planning & zoning commercial-residential designation recommended for Marysville makes it unusual to come up with an answer. Deputy Mayor Jones suggested that possibly an APP for checking db levels might be available when the question arose of how to check on this aspect. A person in the public section checked and showed there was. That lead to laughter when someone else suggested indiviuals wandering up and down with cell phones listening to the music. Fisher noted that The Mansion in Kingston is also in a commercialresidential area and has a 85 db level limit. Ken Keyes and Casey Fisher will continue to work on finding agreement to determine the right db level and time frames for any exemption to the township’s noise bylaw for the next council meeting Oct. 15th on Howe Island.
3. There was some discussion about the recent visit of the By Law Control Officer Ken Gilpin and some concerns that have been raised. 4. Council approved the purchase of a 1997 pumper truck for the Howe Island Fire and Rescue Department at a cost of $25,000. Funds were transferred from the Howe Island Fire Reserves. Council meets next Tues. Oct. 15 , Howe Island -6:30 pm.
sion, as the ballerinas moved or posed, it was fascinating to watch the photographers, many of whom were shooting dance for the first time. They looked enthralled, excited to be in the dance environment. It’s a passionate place. Dance and theatre are two of my favorite forms of photography. There aren’t enough photographers around who can do it well, so it’s nice to see folks beginning to learn the skills. Some of those involved seemed to get the feeling and meaning of dance and their images showed this. Others struggled, and, likewise, their photographs showed it. It’s a hard road. It takes a lot of skill. You have to know your camera thoroughly. You have to
understand dance, and you have to understand the specific form of dance you’re photographing. I was so inspired with the photographers surrounding me at the Kingston School of Dance that I decided to host a Meetup on theatre photography. Photographers will get an opportunity to shoot live theatre. Live performance is a nightmare for many photographers. There are no setups or second chances in live theatre (or live dance per-
formances) and you have no control over the light (or extreme lack of light). There’s a huge frustration curve to conquer, but that’s where you learn. You’ll never learn action photography in a class. It helps to have a mentor and
you learn by doing. That’s what Kingston Photography Meetup is all about. For more information about the Kingston Photography Meetup, visit www.meetup.com/KingstonPhotography.

is that it gives an opportunity for new people to work with those who are more experienced and it gives the experienced a chance to take on the role of mentor,” said Brule. He encourages any member with a particular skill to make a suggestion for a Meetup. Some sessions have a fee, but most are free. “We’re going to have a yearly membership fee soon,” said Brule. “It won’t be a lot, maybe ten or twenty dollars. I don’t want this to be something where no one bothers to do anything. It’s meant to be a group that is active, where people can grow their skills and push ideas forward and get out there and do stuff.” Brule said he’d like the group to become a resource. “I’d like this group to be able to be a go-to place even for people outside of the group looking for photographers or information. I would like to see this as a resource for the community.” He explained that as photographers’ skills develop, they shouldn’t be afraid to make money. Many media outlets today encourage amateurs to upload their photos, and the average amateur photographer jumps at the chance to see their name on a TV screen or in public. It may be an ego boost, but it’s slowly destroying the image of professional photography. Brule said he’d like to see more Photography Meetup shows and productions. Their first one is running this month, with group members’ images on display at The Sleepless Goat on Princess Street. “I’d like to see more events that focus on work done by people in the group,” said Brule. “In the future this may include film productions for festivals or YouTube. There’s no way you can ignore the growing world of video that is available on most new cameras.” In the recent dance photo ses-

Heritage Lifestyle - Bright coloured leaves, cool evenings and warm apple cider – fall is here. We are lucky to celebrate four distinct seasons in Canada. We have hot summer days and crisp winter mornings, each giving us cause for celebration. The autumnal equinox marks this welcome change of time. Make the most of the weather before the chill of winter sets in. Fall brings with it different outdoor activities. Wrap up warm and camping is still enjoyable. Discover the picturesque hiking trails with their changing leaves. It’s a great time to take the family to the local orchard. September is the beginning of apple season. Whether you pick your own or buy them from the grocery store
or farmers’ market, this is the season to enjoy the endless supply of apples available. Discover varieties like Cortland, Northern Spy, Honeycrisp, Empire, Spartan, Delicious, Ambrosia, Cox’s Orange Pippin and the good old McIntosh. French settlers introduced fruit trees to Nova Scotia in the early 1600s. By the mid-1800s, every province that could grew apples. Apple orchards and the families who farmed them helped create what would become the most important tree crop in Canada. Apple growing is so typically Canadian. I like to head out to fill a basket. We try to make apple picking an annual event. The sweet smell fills the house for weeks. We make apple pies, applesauce, apple cakes and cookies. Sometimes, we make a day of picking apples. Take the ferry to Prince Edward County to pick apples and lunch on scrumptious food at a fine restaurant. The county is wonderful at any time of year. Autumn, with its wash of colour on the trees, makes it especially inviting. I like to take in the freshness of the lake air as the Glenora Ferry glides across the water. We are so lucky to live in a country of such beauty. Sometimes, an occasional stop for lunch at Waupoos Cider, known as the
County Cider Company, is in order. I recommend a visit while the warm weather is still here. Sit in the outside patio garden overlooking Lake Ontario - the view is spectacular. Enjoy the wood fire pizza from the stone oven and sip the sweet nectar of cider produced on the farm. Waupoos Cider is located at 657 Bongards Rd, Picton. It is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the tasting room from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. This year, I will be picking apples a little closer to home. My own apple trees are laden with fruit. Apples are synonymous with fall, but I also enjoy the blossoms in the spring. For the health benefits alone, eating an apple is always a good idea. It is fun finding the many uses for apples. Apples are tasty in loads of variations of sweet treats and savory dishes. Food and Wine Magazine has an apple-walnut stuffed porchetta recipe featured in this month’s magazine. My all-time favorite smell is the spicy lingering of apples and cinnamon. This week I made an apple spice bundt cake. Apple Spice Bundt Cake Recipe from MarthaStewart.com
Directions: Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray and dust with flour; set aside. Step 2: Sift together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Step 3: In another bowl, combine oil, sugar, and eggs; mix on high speed until lemon yellow. Step 4: Fold in dry ingredients and blend. Step 5: Add apples and, if desired, nuts, to batter; mix to combine. Add vanilla mixing until incorporated.
Step 7: Remove from oven, and cool lightly on wire rack. Step 8: Invert cake rack; turn cake right side up to cool completely on rack, and serve drizzled with a caramel sauce or other icing. If you have a recipe or a restaurant suggestion please email me at email@example.com or LadyDinesalot.com.

Step 6: Pour batter into the prepared pan, and bake until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 75 to

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 – A blue mood is nothing to worry about, Aries. It is just your body telling you that you may need to slow down a bit. Take heed and you’ll recharge in no time. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 – Taurus, you are beginning a contemplative phase of life right now, but you won’t have to sacrifice your social life to do so. Take a few days off from socializing and then return. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 – Try to avoid any deep conversations or controversial topics this week, Gemini. Right now it’s best if you focus on more trivial matters and enjoy yourself. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 – Cancer, give yourself more time to figure everything out if you are feeling indecisive about someone. Don’t forge ahead without feeling entirely comfortable with the person. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 – Leo, don’t drop everything you’re working on to address a developing issue at home. Others can handle the situation just as well as you, so keep your focus on preexisting tasks at hand. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 – Virgo, listen to friends and family members when they encourage you to try something new this week. Trust your instincts, as they seldom turn you in the wrong direction. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 – You have no time for gossip this week, Libra. Your plate is already full at work and at home, so avoid getting caught up in anything that compromises your focus. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 – Scorpio, though it may feel like others are flying past you while you’re slowly plodding along, eventually things will even out and you’ll end up where you need to be. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 – Create some plausible plans for the future this week, Sagittarius. Keep a journal to help you keep track of your ideas and make sense of your plans. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 –Capricorn, your generosity finds you devoting much of your time tending to the needs of others this week. Enjoy your time helping others and don’t be afraid to accept their gratitude. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 – Don’t get too hung up if your week is all work and little play. While your schedule might be hectic in the coming days, some relaxation time will arrive this weekend.

‘Central’ provided vital link with farm neighbours Columnist firstname.lastname@example.org Lifestyle – It was a complete mystery to me. I never thought much about it before Uncle Lou, with his usual feeling of compassion for Mother, installed our first telephone out on the farm in Northcote. But once that beautiful oak contraption was hung on our wall in the kitchen, I was in complete awe of how someone not even in our house, knew when we wanted to talk to someone miles away, or they wanted to talk to us. That someone was right inside Briscoe’s General Store! She sat on a padded chair in front of a big board with holes in it, and long cords trapped in a desk-like affair in front of her. Usually, a light would come on, but sometimes a little bell would ring, and she would know exactly what to do with those cords and the holes in the board with the red lights flashing! Sometimes, Mr. Briscoe manned what was called the switchboard himself, but I have little memory of his voice coming into our oak phone on the kitchen wall. It was someone we simply called “Central”. The very first day we got the phone, will stay in my mind forever. Mother cried. Not from sadness, but from the sheer wonder of finally being able to talk to someone at will beyond the four walls of our old log house. That first night, we sat around the kitchen waiting for the phone to ring. There was no looking through Eaton’s catalogue that night, or whittling or playing cards at the pine table. Even Mother’s diaries never left the back-tothe-wall cupboard. We sat in a circle as if we were in a theatre. Only Father wasn’t that impressed. Finally, it came around to bedtime, and it looked very much like the phone was not going to ring. It was Mother who decided, if no one was going to ‘call in’, then she would ‘call out’. She went to the beautiful new phone, which I thought was every bit as nice as the new oak ice box grandfather bought for us, and took the receiver off the hook, and pressed a little black button on the side of the box. “Could I please talk to Bertha Thom,” she said into the black mouthpiece. And there it was! There was Mother talking to Aunt Bertha! Just as if she was in another room, and not across the 20-acre field on the next farm. When the phone was put in that day, we were told our ring was ‘two longs and a short’. It didn’t take us long to know the

rings of everyone else in Northcote. But it really didn’t matter if we knew the right rings or not, because “Central” as we called the switchboard at Briscoes General Store, was well acquainted with the rings of everyone for miles around. Having a phone was not without its problems. When it rang, it could be for any number of homes in Northcote! As many as four or even five other families shared the line! We soon found out you had to be extremely careful what you said on the phone, because, if they chose to listen in, everyone who took off their receiver were privileged to your conversation. And it wasn’t unusual to have your complete conversation repeated the next day at the General Store! It also wasn’t unusual to pick up the receiver and ask Central if she knew where Mrs. Hines was...her advice was needed. Central always knew where everyone was. Sometimes when Mother rang a neighbour, Central would come on and say, “Oh, she’s gone into Renfrew to Walkers...she needed some lace trim for a blouse she’s making. She should be back in a couple hours...do you want me to ring you when she gets home?” Central was the lifeblood of the entire neighbourhood. If there was a fire, or any other emergency, somehow Central was able to ring all the farms at the same time, at least that seemed to be the case. Because everyone responded in jig time to give a helping hand where needed. Of course you didn’t need Central if you knew the ring of the person you were calling. You just pressed the little black button on the side of the telephone and twirled the handle on the other side, giving the number of rings to reach whomever you wanted to talk to. And it wasn’t unusual for Central to interrupt your call to tell you some important bit of news, or to say someone else was trying to get the phone, and would you please hurry it up and free up the line!! It was different when Mr. Briscoe was answering a call. With him it was all business... no time for idle chatter with Mr. Briscoe! Mother always felt safer once we had the phone put in on the farm. Some of the isolation she felt when she first moved to Northcote was gone. It was my sister Audrey who noticed it. “It’s not exactly like New York,” Audrey said. “But for Mother it beats not being able to talk to another soul without getting out the horse and buggy or the old Model T.” Yes indeed. The new phone made a world of difference to our lives on the farm. And “Central”, I thought back then, was just about the most important person in Northcote. She was that vital link between isolation and connection with a neighbour.

BrassWerks to Play Sydenham Street United Church mixed-voice group that often plays with the Kingston Symphony, will join the brass ensemble for some numbers. Brian Jackson will also be a special guest. In the past, Jackson has conducted the Ontario Youth Choir, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Symphony Nova Scotia and many others. Catherine Redsell, a French horn player with BrassWerks, looks forward to tomorrow’s concert. “Brass ensembles can be exciting, they can be romantic, they’re very versatile,” says Redsell. BrassWerks has been performing together for nearly nine years, and most of the original members are still part of the group.

Heritage Events - Tomorrow night, Kingston’s prolific brass ensemble, known as BrassWerks, will be playing a special concert at Sydenham United Church. The theme of the evening is “Last Night at the Proms,” and the playlist will include music such as William Walton’s Crown Imperial, which has been played at two coronations as well at the illustrious Royal Wedding of Will and Kate. The Proms, for the uninitiated, is a reference to The Henry Wood Promenade Concerts presented by the BBC. The series is a tradition that dates back to the late 19th century. The concert tomorrow evening will be a nod to Kingston’s British roots. The Kingston Choral Society, a

Zombies and spiders and wolves… oh my! By Hollie Pratt-Campbell email@example.com
Heritage Events - October has officially arrived, which means Halloween is right around the corner. Here in the Limestone City, it’s easy to get into the spirit of the season thanks to the good people at Fort Henry, who every year raise the dead for their popular Fort Fright event. This year, Fort Fright is expected to be scarier than ever thanks to the addition of new themed spaces in the dry ditch, the Fort’s recently acquired high tech projection system and live zombies who are hungry for the blood of innocent visitors. Some of the zombies are on roller skates, making them virtually impossible to escape on foot. “Our theme is Fort Henry was hosting a roller derby event one evening when the zombies came to life and took over the Fort,” explains Fort Henry manager Will Baird. Before they arrive at the derby arena, however, guests must travel through, among other things, a graveyard, a spider colony, and an area Baird affectionately refers to as the “hillbilly hut”. (Think: redneck zombies jumping out at you from behind bales of hay.) Following hillbilly hut is a hay bale maze, where more scary creatures may or may not be lurking. Baird notes that there is no shortage of people who are eager to dress up in costumes and scare people. “We have about 15-20 scare actors a night, and then on top of that we have a very robust volunteer program,” he says. “On any given weekend, you can expect 10-12 people that want to dress up and scare people.” The derby girls, for example, are volunteers from Kingston’s recreational roller derby club, the REC’n Rollers. “[The rest of the actors are] spread throughout the facility in different kinds of things,” Baird says. “In our hay bale maze, which is really popular, we’ve got a lot of people in those ghillie suits.” Others are found in the indoor portion of the Fort, where there is no shortage of dark corners to hide in and jump out from. There are also many scary looking displays and animatronics, including enormous spiders and wolves that lunge at the feet of passersby. “The wolves are a feature prop at a lot of different attractions,” Baird says. “We were very lucky to get them in for this year.” The Fort Fright team has also made great use of the dry ditch and the huge wall that surrounds the Fort. “We have a whole series of lights that can light you up as you go around,” Baird says. “So you’ll have these huge shadows cast on the wall as you walk through.” Even Fort Henry’s restaurant, The Battery Bistro, is getting into the spirit. “They have some catchy ways to marry the meal service to the theme of Halloween walk the plank salmon, stuff like that,” Baird says. For a truly terrorizing experience, Baird recommends visiting on a weeknight. “We actually find that on the nights that aren’t as busy, the earlier weeknights, it’s more fun because you get to scare people better,” he says with a menacing laugh. Fort Fright is open Thursday to Saturday evenings Sept. 26 - Oct. 9, and nightly Oct. 24 – Nov. 2, 6 to 10 p.m.

Athletes’ pay continues to soar into the stratosphere Jeff Maguire Columnist
Lifestyle – In 1930 baseball legend Babe Ruth was under public scrutiny due to his high salary. After making $70,000 each of the previous three seasons the New York Yankees’ sensation had his pay packet increased by another ten grand. The Great Depression was in full swing at the time and with jobs at a premium people were lining up daily to eat at soup kitchens. Terrible times, so little wonder the American public were envious of ‘The Bambino.’ In today’s terms his 1930 salary would be worth approximately $1.1 million. At the time it was considered “astonishing!” Ruth was never stuck for words and he had a quick response when a reporter asked how he could justify making $80,000 to play baseball when then US President Herbert Hoover was paid $75,000 annually. “I know, but I had a better year than Hoover,” he replied. Today another Yankees’ superstar Alex Rodriguez is taking home a cool $32 million (m) per season. That’s eight times the pay of current American President Barack Obama. Of course A-Rod’s pay cheque may only last as long as his current appeal of a 211 game suspension imposed recently by Major League Baseball (MLB) for his alleged use of performance enhancing drugs. He won’t be paid for the period of his suspension, should it be upheld by an independent arbitrator. The appeal hearing is scheduled to begin Sept. 30. Yes, money and top-flight athletes go hand in hand and that is a major topic of discussion among people today, just as it was when Ruth was busily re-writing the
MLB batting record book in the 1920s and ‘30s. For fans of team sports the main focus is the season, the playoff or pennant races and ultimately, hopefully, a championship for their favourite team or teams. I’m a Detroit Tigers’ fan. At this writing the ball club is on the verge of a third straight American League (AL) Central Division championship. I’m hopeful of another strong playoff showing. Tigers rolled to the AL Pennant in 2012 before bombing in the World Series, losing four straight to San Francisco Giants, the National League titleists. The National Hockey League (NHL) campaign is just around the corner – a full season too this time – and locally all eyes are on the Ottawa Senators. Fans are anxious to see how the Sens will perform without long-time captain and talisman Daniel Alfredsson? Or at the very least Ottawa fans will be anticipating the club’s first meeting with the Detroit Red Wings, Alfie’s new team. That comes up Oct. 23 in the Motor City. The clubs are now in the same division and will face-off four times during the campaign. Despite the fact fans like me enjoy following their team(s) day-to-day throughout the various seasons it is difficult for most of us to relate to what athletes today are being paid. Only a tiny fraction of people ever achieve such riches! Salaries incredible Being paid so handsomely to play a game doesn’t compute for most of us. But clearly it does when the various leagues and their member teams consider the bottom line, which is making money. Because I’m a Tigers’ fan I will focus on them as one good example of massive player salaries.
34 The Kingston EMC - Thursday, October 3, 2013
In 2008 slugger Miguel Cabrera inked what was then the richest contract in team history, an eight-year $153m pact. Certainly if anyone warrants that kind of money, Cabrera does. At age 30 he has quickly overtaken the biggest run producers in MLB history. Last year the Detroit third baseman won the “Triple Crown” which goes to a player who combines the highest batting average with the most home runs and the highest runs batted in total. His award was the first in 45 years. The previous Major Leaguer to achieve the rare honour was former Boston Red Sox star Carl Yastrzemski in 1967, Canada’s Centennial Year. Not surprisingly, with two years left in his current deal, Tigers’ brass has already begun talks with the Venezuelan-born Cabrera about a contract extension. Cabrera isn’t the highest paid player on the Detroit roster however. Far from it in fact! Power hitter Prince Fielder set a new team record in January 2012 when he inked a nine-year, $214m deal. Fielder, son of former Toronto Blue Jays’ slugger Cecil Fielder, has played well although his home run production has tailed off. The distinction of the largest contract for a pitcher in MLB history belongs to current Tigers’ ace Justin Verlander. He agreed (who wouldn’t?) to a seven-year, $180m contract prior to this season. Verlander, who won the prestigious Cy Young Award and the AL Most Valuable Player in 2011, has struggled somewhat this season however. Tigers’ management and fans feel he is so competitive that he may be over trying in an effort to live up to the hype. But despite being down in victories his overall pitching statistics remain among the best in the AL as this regular season wraps up. The long campaign ends Sunday with the playoffs starting the first week of October.
I have not used the term “earned” to describe athletes’ pay. That’s because I don’t believe anyone can really earn such inflated salaries. Still, if there is any sport that can afford to pay such ridiculous amounts to its players, it is revenue rich Major League Baseball. Internet returns alone have boosted baseball earnings in North America to the highest mark in the history of the sport. On the global sports stage nothing can knock soccer – or football as it is called in most of the world – from the top rung. Soccer, which is often referred to as “the World Game”, is No. 1. But outside of a handful of teams led by Spain’s Real Madrid, Manchester United of the English Premier League (EPL) and Barcelona, also of the Spanish La Liga, most teams are struggling to keep their heads above water. That is mainly due to ridiculously inflated player salaries. Striking it rich As the new European soccer season began a few weeks ago, Real Madrid completed the highest ever transfer deal in world football history. They signed Welsh midfielder Gareth Bale from London side Tottenham Hotspur of the EPL for €100m ($140 million CDN). That is only the transfer fee paid to Tottenham! The Madrid soccer giants will also have to pay Bale a reported £256,000 per week ($404,000 CDN). Still, the highest earning soccer players don’t come close to the best paid athletes in North American sports, unless you include the endorsement deals for a select few such as former English star David Beckham and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo. The National Football League and National Basketball Association in the U.S. also pay massive money for their top stars.
Of course the real beneficiary of the Bale to Madrid arrangement is Tottenham. Sure, they lose a player who won both top awards in the EPL last season. But fearing a Bale exit they signed seven new players in the off season for a combined £115m. The transfer money from Real Madrid basically covers their signing spree. Such is the world of professional sports! Oh yes, the 100 highest earning athletes in the world (according to Forbes Magazine) include 27 MLB players. Rodriguez at $32 million leads the baseball world. But he’s No. 18 on the overall list. Of the top 10 sports earners, five are Americans. Soccer’s Beckham ($47m) qualifies for the list despite announcing his retirement this past spring. He ranks eighth. The top five are led by golfer Tiger Woods ($78m), followed by tennis star Roger Federer ($71.5m), NBA stars Kobe Bryant ($61.9m) and LeBron James ($59.8m) with New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees ($51m) rounding out the select list. The top 100 play 11 different sports with baseball first (27). There are 21 NBA players on the chart, 13 NFLers and 12 soccer stars. A total of 23 countries are represented on the elite roll. Not surprisingly 63 Americans are among the top 100 sports wage earners. Clearly they won’t be holding a tag day for the recently embattled Mr. Woods based on these numbers. All things considered it still totally boggles the mind! If you have a comment or question for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers. com.
