First wintertime market gives off ‘beautiful buzz’ says organizer By Craig Bakay Reporter

Puzzle Page Pg. 26

EMC News — The organizers weren’t sure what to expect when they decided to move the Sharbot Lake Farmers’ Market indoors to Oso Hall. But, after Saturday, they felt confident enough to continue with their plans to continue on the first and third Saturdays of the month from January through April. “This is all new to us,” said Peggy Green, vendor/ volunteer administrator.

“But it’s been a beautiful buzz.” Green said their justification for the winter experiment was to raise funds (through $10 table fees and seminar fees and coffee/ squares sales) in order “to fund the market manager’s position in a sustainable way.” But it turned out to be a bit more than that. “We did also want to keep the feel and the community aspect going, something for families to do on a Saturday morning in the winter,” she said. “We’re

very fortunate here to get the support from Council and the community that we get here.” Patron Marcel Giroux said he may have to revamp his Saturday morning routine. “Usually, Saturday morning is a cup of coffee and reading the newspaper,” he said. “I may have to re-think that.” “I’ve missed the customers and I’ve had more hugs today and I love that,” Green said. “The biggest thing is we want to keep the social contacts going.

“This is a great place for socializing, having a coffee and talking without being rushed out the door. “We don’t mind that kind of loitering.” Upcoming workshops at the Sharbot Lake Farmers’ Market (all workshops $10, cash only, 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Oso Hall in Sharbot Lake): Jan. 19 — At Ease with Your Cheese (Pat FurlongBrownlee), an easy beginner’s class for those interested in cheese making Feb. 2 — Home Garden-

EMC News – The city is bringing in new rules to promote responsible pet ownership, and to reduce the burden of caring for unwanted or stray animals. “In order for the program to be successful, cats and dogs need to be readily identifiable,” according to a staff report to council this week. To that end, the city is planning tough new rules and higher fees for the animal tag identification system starting April 1. But there will also be incentives for responsible owners. License renewals for spayed or neutered dogs will nearly double to $30 a year, while renewal fees for spayed or neutered cats will quadruple to $25 from the current rate. The maximum tag would be $50 for an “intact” dog. However, pet owners can avoid the higher license fees, plus a new $100 initial registration cost, through early payment before April 1. City bylaw officials say the higher tag fees are consistent with what other municipalities are charging to offset the cost of impounded animals, while striking a fair balance between owners who register their pets and those who don’t. Under the worst case scenario, pet owners will face much higher costs to claim their strays from the animal pound, which is run by the Kingston Humane Society. For example, the owner of an untagged dog that ends up in the pound must pay the city a $100 fee to register the animal along with the actual tag fee, pound costs of $133 for the first day to a maximum of $258, plus any municipal fines for having an animal at large. It could be a costly experience if a dog breaks out of someone’s backyard. On the other hand, bylaw officials say pre-tagged animals will get the VIP treatment which includes a free ride home to the owner. “Cats and dogs wearing cur-

rent tags will be eligible for a free ride home avoiding costly impound fees,” according to commissioner Cynthia Beach’s recommendation to council. The free-ride-home program is patterned after Calgary’s approach to responsible pet ownership, yet if the owner isn’t home or is unavailable the animal would be returned to the pound where the usual fees would then apply. Councillors were to debate the new rules at their first meeting of the New Year on January 8. The city also plans to step up enforcement measures to investigate complaints about stray, trespassing and unleashed pets, along with the failure to follow stoop-and-scoop rules. “An animal control officer will be deployed to cover hours of the day that have not been covered in the past,” wrote Beach. The extended coverage will include early morning and late evening hours, plus weekends, at an additional staffing cost of $50,000 a year. The city plans aggressive action this year to get cats and dogs tagged, which includes online registration options and a door-to-door sales campaign in pilot project areas. Increasing enforcement against illegal breeders and micro-chipping pets will also be explored under the sweeping new policy. The city’s push for a responsible pet ownership program began last year when the Kingston Humane Society complained about skyrocketing costs for pound services. The added costs were eventually transferred to taxpayers when the city and animal shelter signed a renewed service provider contract of $354,000 a year - more than triple the amount the city used to pay. At the time, many councillors indicated they had been lax in not doing enough to encourage and enforce responsible pet ownership. Humane Society officials applaud the new program saying it’s key to eventually reducing the financial burden on the shelter and taxpayers.

Kingston Taxi Commission aims to launch accessible cab service this year By Bill Hutchins Reporter

EMC News – Accessible taxis are expected to appear on Kingston streets this year, but it may require some form of municipal subsidy to keep the service rolling. The latest proposal under study by the Kingstonarea Taxi Commission is for local cab companies to come up with a plan to put three wheelchair-accessible cabs on the roads, possibly with the help of a third party operator, and to present the findings to the commission this month. “It was determined that 3 accessible plates is the equivalent to approximately 1.5 percent of the total taxi fleet,” according to a report by Julie Salter-Keane, the city’s accessibility compliance project manager. The push for accessible taxis has been ongoing for at least five years. Many of the city’s mobility challenged residents have long complained they are unfairly confined to their homes at certain times of the day,

and unable to access suitable transportation. The city runs Kingston Access Bus but the service usually requires pre-booking two weeks in advance and does not operate 24 hours a day. The one-way cash fare is $2.50. Kingston Transit is also not a realistic solution for many disabled people in power scooters or wheelchairs. Calling a cab would solve the dilemma, but it could be a costly venture. Taxi commission officials say the cost of operating on-demand accessible taxis has always been prohibitive to providing the service. Cab companies may be hesitant to provide a service with high operating costs and limited revenues. However, providing a municipal tax subsidy is one solution to bridge the gap. The city already subsidizes both Kingston Access Bus and Kingston Transit through property taxes, and councillors may consider accessible taxis as a necessary cost. It is poised to become a

mandatory service provision in a few years. Under the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, municipalities that license taxicabs will be required to provide on-demand taxis for persons with disabilities by 2015. City officials are pushing to launch the service well in advance of the provincial mandate. If the local cab companies – Amey’s, Modern and Kingston & Amherst – do not voluntarily provide accessibility options by early this year, the Taxi Commission has the authority to order them to provide it. “If the proposal from the brokers is not forthcoming, the Taxi Commission may consider, without the input of the brokers, amending he taxi bylaw to require accessible taxis by the end of 2013,” according to Salter-Keane. At this point, the commission is not planning to use a heavy legislative hand on the cab companies. The commission next meets Wednesday, January 16 in city hall to discuss the feasibility, cost and timeline of launching accessible cabs.

EMC News – Kingston’s mayor is embarking on a road show to trumpet city council’s mid-term accomplishments. Mark Gerretsen has announced a series of “community meetings” in January and February to update residents on the progress made on several priorities during the past two years. “By holding these meetings, taking our progress to the people we have a unique opportunity to talk about our achievements and our challenges while listening to residents,” Gerretsen said in a January 4 news release. Council established six key priorities in early 2011; maintaining and enhancing infrastructure, enabling economic development, rejuvenating Brownfields, creating affordable housing, creating and protecting green spaces, and developing pro-active community plans. In each of those categories is a sub-list of goals council wanted to achieve during its four year term. “In the first two years and at the half way mark of this term, council has made significant progress on many of the things outlined in the strategic plan,”

KI walkers pass through the Frontenacs on trek to Ottawa By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — In 2006, Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) community member Mark Anderson began a walk from his Pickle Lake home to Queen’s Park to draw attention to proposed mining operations in their remote community some 580 kilometres north of Thunder Bay. In 2008, six members of the community (The KI Six, Chief Donny Morris, Jack McKay, Sam McKay,

Darryl Sainnawap, Cecilia Begg and Bruce Sakakeep) were imprisoned for protesting development on their traditional land by Platinex Inc. Now, some five years later, spurred by what they see as little progress, Anderson has re-assembled his walking team to continue the walk from Queen’s Park to Ottawa, which brought them along Hwy 7 through Central Frontenac Township Saturday. And while it’s unlikely any of this would have hap-

pened were there no plans for a platinum mine on the table, it’s about a lot more than that said spokesperson John Cutfeet, as the group accepted the hospitality of Heather Wahweaye in her Maberly home Saturday night. It’s about the treaty they signed in 1929, and their position that the government is not living up to its end of the bargain. “We didn’t just get up one day and say ‘let’s cause trouble,’” Cutfeet said. “The Crown pledged

to honour the commitments they made at treaty time ‘for as long as the sun shines, the waters flow and the grass grows.’ “God’s creation was used to entice our people to sign on to Treaty 9 (but) Canada, through the actions of the Harper government, wants to continue to violate the treaty commitments through Bill C-45, which will negatively impact our peoples, lands, waters and environment.” The treaty is very important to the KI, and Cutfeet points to their flag, which included the colours yellow (for the shining sun), blue (for the waters) and green (for the grass) as evidence of that. “The treaty promises are very powerful, especially using God’s creation to relate the solemnity and the sacredness of these commitments,” he said. “By reneging and making a mockery through the continued violations of the

Prime Minister, “to show solidarity,” he said. (Harper has scheduled a meeting with Spence and other First Nations leaders for Friday.) Cutfeet is hopeful something will come out of that meeting, but is realistic about what can come out of it. “I think it’s really important for the Prime Minister to listen to what we’re saying but a one-day meeting won’t deal with complex issues,” he said. “But we have to bring attention to the fact that he isn’t holding up his end of the treaty. “We’re only asking that issues of treaty be dealt with seriously.”

EMC - Your Community Newspaper In Our Opinion

Ah, winter, slip-sliding away driving is back again for the season Craig Comment By Craig Bakay

EMC Column — Winter’s here. OK, show of hands, how many people have already done a little ditch driving? It never fails, every winter it’s the same thing — we seem to forget what driving on snow and ice is like and it takes a little slip-sliding episode to shock us back to the realities of winter driving. Personally, that was Sunday for me as I narrowly avoided both ditches (through the graces of the good Lord cuz I’m not that good of a driver) on the Scurve by the fairgrounds

coming into Maberly from the south. But I know I’m not the only one. It’s a horrible feeling, isn’t it? You’re cruising along, about to make a turn of some sort, when, bam! Your vehicle starts to slide, the breaks aren’t stopping you and your gut feels like crap as you get hit with the realization that you may be in the ditch any second. And I wasn’t going very fast either. Ask anybody who’s driven with me (or behind me). I have a welldeserved reputation for plodding along around the speed limit (yes, I’m the guy you complain about when you’re in a hurry to get somewhere). But even though I rarely speed, and I drive a fourwheel-drive Jeep Cherokee (that’s seen better days but it’s such an old friend I can’t seem to part with her), it only seems to take

a second to go from blissful ignorance of road conditions to the grim reality of an uncontrolled skid. Actually, I’ve been very lucky in that regard the past few years. Bill MacDonald was still mayor the last time I was in the ditch. He still likes to remind me about the time I was late for a Council meeting back in the days when they still had every other one in the old school/now library in Mountain Grove. I was driving along No. 7 and instead of completing the turn into Mountain Grove, I slipped off into the swamp on the right side of the road. I was there a good half hour before a nice fellow with a four-wheeldrive, three-quarter ton came along and dragged me out of there. (Funny how you never seem to manage to shovel your way out of the ditch eh?) So, the point is, it’s winter again and we all need to remember and recognize

the special driving conditions snow and ice present us with. Slowing down is a good thing. But it’s not the only thing. You need to stay sharp on snow-covered roads, slowing down well before you want to turn. You know all the rest. Carry some emergency supplies like blankets and a shovel and hope like hell you don’t have to use them. Oh, and one last thing. (I’m saying this now to get the jump on public works managers Mark Segsworth and Mike Richardson because I know it’s only a matter of time before they ask me to mention it.) Now that the snowplows are back on the roads, cut the guys driving them some slack. The busiest roads get the most attention first, but eventually they’ll get to your road as soon as they can. The Townships can afford only so many snow plows.

There’s something to be said for the DVD rental Coughlar's Corner By Kristen Coughlar

EMC Editorial – During what little time off I had during the holiday season, I caught up on a lot of movies. Sometimes there is nothing better than taking a day off to lie on the couch and do nothing but vegetate and escape into the world of film. Looper, Pitch Perfect, Premium Rush and Total Recall were among the new titles I watched over the course of a few days. I also revisited some older films that were playing on cable. On each of my “couch

days”, as I searched through the various titles available on Video on Demand, I thought of how I miss frequenting local video stores, searching the aisles of new releases and old classics, looking at the images and reading the backs of movie cases to determine what I would watch that evening. It feels as though a lifetime has passed since I last visited the Blockbuster on Norwest Road, near the Cataraqui Centre, or Bayridge Centre Video in the Bayridge Centre Plaza. Blockbuster closed in 2011 and I believe Bayridge Centre Video may have since relocated to another part of the city. The Blockbuster location remains vacant, while Bayridge Centre Video’s spot in the Bayridge Centre Plaza is now home to a sushi restaurant. I’m aware that the movie rental business hasn’t yet completely died. During the holiday season I ran into a

family friend who had rentals in hand to return to the Jumbo Video at the Kingston Centre. A quick Google search for movie rental locations in the city reveals a few (and I don’t count those new DVD rental kiosks located in places like Metro) still scattered throughout the city; however, none are located near my home. While I like the convenience of being able to select and purchase a movie from the comfort of my humble abode, there’s just something about the experience of attending the local video store and picking out your film and snacks. My best friend Vicky and I used to have a ball meandering through the aisles looking for low budget, ridiculous horror films to rent— something that has become somewhat of a tradition during our visits. We’ll have to now resign ourselves to the

fact that we’re going to have to find a new and fun way to carry out our tradition, or develop a new one. When in search of a horrible horror flick, the cover photo, movie stills on the back and the synopsis all contribute to your choice, and make for a lot of laughs along the way. Face it, picking your movie based on a brief description on the background of a blue VOD screen just isn’t the same. Movie trailers of some films are also available for viewing on VOD, but not always. Like everything else, I’m sure making my movie selection from the seat of my couch with the push of a button will become second nature in time, but I will forever have fond memories of my times spent in the aisles of my neighbourhood movie rental store.

In Our Opinion

Disappointing indeed EMC Editorial – Last week, a press release from the Ontario Provincial Police revealed that as part of this year’s Festive Ride Program, conducted from Nov. 24 to Jan. 2, 693 people were charged with having a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) over 0.08. Officers also issued 625 Warn Range Suspensions to those caught driving with a BAC between 0.05 and 0.08. The press release said the OPP was “disappointed that the number of motorists charged with impaired driving over the holidays is the highest it has been when compared to the last eight campaigns (from 2005 to present).” These figures are disappointing indeed. Just weeks ago, we at the EMC wrote to readers about the variety of options for a safe ride home during the holiday season, from taxis and holiday ride services to designated drivers in the form of family and friends. With options such as these available, there is absolutely no excuse to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. Our feelings at the EMC go beyond that of disappointment when we think that with all the public education and awareness surrounding the dangers of impaired driving, there are many who still feel it is OK to get behind the wheel after drinking, putting themselves and others at risk. OPP Commissioner Chris Lewis noted that impaired driving continues to be the leading cause of criminal death in Canada. It is important that we here in KFL&A continue to assist the OPP and other local agencies in their efforts to reduce the number of impaired drivers on our roads. We need to do our part and make it known to our friends, family, colleagues and mere acquaintances that driving while impaired is not OK and will not be tolerated. With increased efforts by both law enforcement and community members, hopefully we will take a step forward and be reporting better results during 2013-2014.

New Development project allows residents to own a piece of Kingston’s history EMC Correspondent

EMC News - BPE Development has started a new project in the downtown core of Kingston—The Tower, Clergy on Queen is a development project that turns an abandoned church into 16 beautiful and unique condominiums. Ben Pilon, one of the owners of BPE Developments, was very interested in the space when it became available a few years ago and saw great potential for the area. “After it was severed and divided we were left with this beautiful church, and when we started exploring what we were going to do with it, we came across some really neat church conversion

projects and we fell in love with the idea. It provided amazing reuse for the building and gave life to it. We thought it would be wonderful for the downtown of the city and that is where we are at right now.” BPE has only just finished the design process for the project, but they hope to get the project moving as soon as possible. “We’ve completed the design and are now going through the city approval process. We want to get started in September with construction and then the units will be completed in early winter of 2014, with a move in date of 2015,” said Pilon. While taking on a project like this may be intimidating for

some development companies, BPE has found it to be a perfect fit. “We have some similar projects and are very interested in restoring and repurposing older buildings. Our niche market is older buildings that other people are apprehensive to take on. We focus on preserving the building but also making it warm and modern,” said Pilon. The company has taken on a similar project in Kingston already, restoring a historical building on Wellington Street which is now also residential spaces. The church is a historically designated building and cannot be torn

down, so instead of watching it decay, BPE hopes to enhance its features. “It’s a big stone building and I don’t think anyone private could afford to build a structure that is similar to that now. They could, but with mason work it would be very expensive. We were left with a big beautiful stone building with stained glass windows

and amazing wood working inside, and with this project we now have the option of preserving all of that and allowing people to live in it instead of leaving it vacant,” explained Pilon. So what kind of response has BPE seen from the community thus far? “The response has been very positive; we haven’t heard one negative com-

ment. People realize that these old buildings are hard to maintain and congregations are getting smaller and they would rather see them put to use in this way than see them sit there vacant and decaying,” said Pilon. For more information on the project and BPE Development visit R0011835004

The Kingston/Frontenac EMC - Thursday, January 10, 2013


A look back at the stories that made the headlines of 2012 Front-line policing came under political scrutiny in a bid to reduce the 2013 tax rate, but the controversial discussion to find mid-year savings in the police budget was promptly shot down. Some councillors challenged the need to approve resolutions to extend two provincially-funded programs that pay up to 50 per cent of the salaries of 23 frontline officers, while others defended the program, arguing the continuation of funding would actually contribute to the police department’s bottom line, since it doesn’t have to pay 100 per cent of the salaries and overtime

for nearly two dozen officers. An attempt by Coun. Hutchison to delay approval of both funding agreements for a staffing justification report was lost on a close 7-6 vote. A new tower has taken shape in Kingston’s north end, and it’s ready to burn. That would be the $7.8 million fire training facility. The sprawling 21-acre training campus is to be built in four phases. The first two – training tower and site servicing, plus exterior training props – should be finished this summer. Funding for the final two phases – academic building with classrooms and maintenance garage – has not yet been approved by city council. Construction of the fire

training centre began last fall following several years of delays in the search for a suitable location. The city eventually purchased vacant provincial land behind the ministry of transportation office on John Counter Boulevard, though the facility has its own access road off Terry Fox Drive. The centrepiece is a multi-level training tower - complete with propane tanks to simulate real fires. The facility will replace a 1960’s era training centre on Railway Street. Harold Tulk announces that he will retire as chief of Kingston’s Fire and Rescue by the end of the year. “It is time to hang up my helmet and call an end to my 42 years of service,” said Tulk in

a statement. “I have been fortunate to spend a lifetime with so many fine people.” The search for a new chief will begin the next few months. Police Chief Steve Tanner announces he is leaving Kingston to take over similar duties in Halton, where he began his career. Chief Tanner has been in Kingston for four years and promises he will return after his run as the new chief of Halton Regional Police Services. He will take over that post on Sept. 1. City council, by a narrow 7-6 vote, agreed to change its waste bylaws to impose a one-bag household limit starting Sept. 10. Additional bags will require a $2 tag in order to be picked up. There will be exemptions to the one-bag policy when it comes into force. Residents with medical conditions will be given up to 52 free bag tags annually - the equivalent of $104 - as long as they submit a medical note to city officials on an annual basis. The city will also allow households to put out two free bags of trash in the week following three statutory holidays; New Year’s Day, Victoria Day and Labour Day.

August The Mohawk First Nation

and two retired traffic experts are among eight objections filed with the Ontario environment ministry over Kingston’s push for a third bridge crossing. The $1.9 million environmental assessment (EA), which council endorsed in a 10-3 vote last May, is now the focus of mediation between the objectors and city officials, with the province acting as a mediator. The Mohawk Nation Council of Chiefs is basing its challenge on a treaty-based land claim, while retired traffic experts Bruce Todd and Ken Linseman assert that there are alternative measures, which have not been fully explored, to alleviate traffic congestion without building a costly bridge over the Cataraqui River. The environmental study concludes a 1.1 kilometre bridge linking John Counter Boulevard to Gore Road is the best longterm strategy to ease traffic on the LaSalle Causeway. But critics say it’s a project the city doesn’t need, and can’t afford. Deal us out. That was the overwhelming sentiment at a public meeting on whether Kingston should try to become a host city for a privately-owned casino. About 200 people attended the special Aug. 8 council meeting in Memorial Hall to provide feedback on the contentious proposal. The Ontario Lottery

and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is giving communities until this fall to pre-determine public interest in hosting a casino, or not. The OLG’s revamped business model aims to open the gaming industry to the private sector. More than 40 speakers stepped up to the microphone during the two and a half hour meeting and the vast majority voiced opposition to welcoming card tables, slot machines and roulette wheels. The public meeting, coupled with the results of a city-sponsored online survey that ends Aug. 18, will be given to councillors to help them make a decision. In 1955, William Henderson wrote a letter to a Kingston resident reassuring his interest in a hockey hall of fame. In that April 5 letter, Henderson, who was serving at Member of Parliament for Kingston at the time, wrote that he was doing what he could for the hall of fame. Henderson kept his promise, even after death, as the charitable foundation in his name, the William James Henderson Foundation, donated $250,000 last week to what is now known as the International Hockey Hall of Fame. The money will go towards moving the hall from its current location on York Street to See Kingston page 12


Be safe around snow plows.

Drivers: Stay three car-lengths behind a snow plow to allow for a safe stopping distance. NEVER cut off a snow plow. Pedestrians and parents: • Assume the snow plow driver has NOT seen you. • If you see a snow plow, move off the sidewalk and into a yard where you can be seen. • Do NOT play on, or make forts or tunnels in roadside snow banks. • NEVER approach a snow plow, even when it has stopped. Visit the Snow Plow Lookup at to see how your street is designated.

Winter Waste Placement

Place garbage and recycling where it can be clearly seen and safely collected. Choose a collection area at a safe and visible ground-level location, such as: - the right side at the end of your driveway (as you face the street), - if you do not have a driveway, place it on the boulevard closest to the curb, - or, if there is no boulevard, place it on the right side at the end of your walkway. Keep a path from the road to your collectibles clear of snow and ice. Safe placement of collectibles helps avoid worker injury. To ensure worker safety, please remove bungee cords and other tie-downs from Green Bins and garbage cans set at the curb.

A look back at the stories that made the headlines of 2012 Kingston From page 10

a downtown location still to be decided. The City of Kingston will continue to contract animal pound services from the Kingston Humane Society – but only for one year. After that, councillors want the contract opened to a bidding process that could see a for-profit company assume control of caring for the city’s stray cats and dogs. Several councillors voiced concerns after staff, at council’s request, negotiated an untendered contract with the humane society that will see the not-for-profit organization paid an estimated $354,000 until September 2013. Council decided not to subject the tax-funded contract to a request for proposals (RFP), a common procedure among large-scale municipal contracts. The $354,000 service fee is much higher than the $109,000 the city had been paying, but lower than the estimated $578,000 the humane society originally demanded to continue providing the service.

September Councillors approved two construction contracts totalling

more than $25 million, at opposite ends of the city. The Utilities Kingston building on John Counter Boulevard, which is bursting with staff, will get a long-awaited expansion. A four-storey office building will be built next door at a cost of $19.5 million. A pedestrian walkway will connect the new and older office buildings. Meanwhile, the second phase of the ‘big dig’ on Princess Street is set to begin next spring. A $6.2 million construction contract was awarded to Len Corcoran Excavating Ltd. to handle the massive undertaking. The road work involves ripping up two more blocks of Princess Street, between King and Bagot Streets, including the entire road and sidewalk width. Councillors approve a revised budget of nearly $340,000 to install 25 gateway signs along city limits. They say it’s not something to cheap out on. Mayor Mark Gerretsen said the investment is needed to replace the current weathered gateway signs, installed a dozen years ago with outdated population figures. The new welcoming signs will be posted on secondary routes at Kingston city limits including Highway 2, Highway 38, TaylorKidd Boulevard, Perth Road, Bath Road and Highway 15. In addition, four markers will be installed at the entranceways to the

Canada Coach bus station, Via Rail train station, Wolfe Island Ferry terminal and Norman Rogers Airport – which are hubs for travellers. Despite years of financial shortfalls, SMG has won the contract to continue managing Kingston’s flagship arena. Councillors said the private company’s business plan offered more financial guarantees than its rivals. Two of North America’s largest arena management firms – SMG and Global Spectrum – went head to head in competitive bids to run the K-Rock Centre for the next five years. A staff review committee actually gave the edge to Global Spectrum’s proposal, based on a superior marketing and customer service strategy. But councillors were swayed by SMG’s promise to deliver a minimum guaranteed profit of $700,000 a year, something Global officials did not offer, according to city staff. The City of Kingston has shelved plans to study a ban on people under the age of 18 from using indoor tanning beds. Coun. Jeff Scott requested to defer his own motion for staff to study options for a municipal bylaw to prohibit teenage tanning, and report the findings to a committee by March 2013 until after the Ontario government makes a decision on the same matter.

Council’s deferral goes against the advice of the Kingston-area public health unit, which urged city officials to proceed with a local study due to political uncertainty at the provincial level.

October A divided community led to a divided council, but a one vote margin managed to seal the deal in pursuing a casino for Kingston. After a marathon Oct. 2 debate, councillors voted 7-5 to support a resolution advising the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) that it is “interested, in principle, in being a host municipality for a new gaming facility.” With Councillor Liz Schell removing herself from the debate and vote by declaring a potential conflict because her son is an OLG employee, a 6-6 vote would have killed the casino idea. But the mayor and six councillors spoke in favour of moving to the next step in bringing slot machines and card tables to the city. The final decision on a gaming facility, including the size and location, will depend on potential talks between the city, OLG and a private operator in the coming months. It could soon be game over for Kingston’s only municipallyrun golf course. Money-losing

Belle Park Fairways, which sits atop an old landfill, may be one of the targets served up for potential budget cuts this fall. A new staff report identifies mounting tax subsidies, declining membership and limited public access as reasons why the nine-hole golf course on Montreal Street could be closed in favour of new money making uses. The 22nd annual Chilifest raised over $41,000 in support of Hospice Kingston programs. LCVI Cooks Internship took two top prizes for best ethnic and best Tex-Mex; King’s Town School won best vegetarian; Kingston Brewing Company was best original; and Fanatics Sports Lounge best family style. The People’s Choice favourite chili went to The Kingston Brewing Company. Councillors voted 10-2 to expand the reach of the city’s 2002 indoor Smoking Bylaw to ban tobacco use on municipal property such as parks, playgrounds, splash pads, sports fields, beaches, plus seating areas of stadiums. The expanded bylaw, which comes up for final reading next month, will also ban smoking within nine metres of municipal buildings. Public bus transfer points on private property at the Kingston Centre, Cataraqui Town Centre and St. Lawrence College are included in the nine-

metre distance rule. Councillors will launch a study to determine the best locations to build a gambling facility. The so-called zoning setback study will examine the best practices of other communities that have gambling developments to determine suitable locations. More importantly, it will exclude areas of the city where a casino would not be a good fit, possibly near schools, playgrounds, churches and residential neighbourhoods. Councillors say spending $25,000 on a fact-finding study will create a more in-depth land use policy on which to lay claim to a casino. The up-front investment is risky since no private operator has yet submitted a proposal, though informal talks have been held.

November Kingston’s rural residents are caught in a solar flare, and are appealing to city hall for help with respect to Samsung’s planned Sol-Luce solar farm, which will cover about 640 acres spanning a collection of rural properties in the area of Highway 38 and Unity Road. The energy project, featuring rows of hundreds of thousands of solar panels, will See Kingston page 13

Frontenac County Council moved forward on renovations to Fairmount Home’s auditorium at its regular meeting in Glenburnie, approving “up to $20,000” for architectural drawings and applying for a grant that would cost the County about $350,000. However, a staff report suggested the costs involved in the grant would be offset by fundraising efforts from the Friends of Fairmount Home. The County plans to apply for a $1,000,000 grant from the federal Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund and expects some funding from the City of Kingston as well.

and more.



New welcome signs should be showing up on South Frontenac roadways in the future, as Council approved a design (chosen from two finalists picked by the Committee of the Whole) at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham. Public Works Manager Mark Segsworth said there were three categories of signs, 6 Primary (e.g. Road 38), 8 Secondary (e.g. Westport Road, Bellrock Road) and 25 Minor (e.g. Burridge Road, Stagecoach Road). The signs will feature a welcome, the Township motto (“Our Strength is Our Community”) and the population (18,100). Kerry and Bill Arthur open Sydenham Pet and Farm Supply in the Village of Sydenham at 4383 Mill St. The store carries a variety of pet food lines and farm feed, as well as pet accessories like bowls and leashes. In the future, Kerry and Bill hope to branch out and offer obedience classes and retriever trials. There was a hearty round of applause at South Frontenac Council, after councillors voted in favour of leasing the old school house in Hartington to the Portland District and Area Heritage Society. There are a number of issues that will keep the building unusable for public visitation but the Society can still use it for a variety of their needs. “They would have to secure grants to make it accessible

to the public,” CAO/Clerk Wayne Orr said. Kathie and Francis Groenewegen, and their two children Patrick and Olivia, open the doors to their new business venture, the Limestone Organic Creamery. The creamery is located at 3113 Sydenham Rd. and processes certified organic milk and offers glass, 946 millilitre bottles of milk in skim, one per cent, two per cent, 3.8 per cent, 3.8 unhomogenized and 3.8 per cent chocolate. The creamery also processes and sells its own butter and is looking at branching into yogurt in the future. In addition to its own products, the creamery sells items from a number of other local and area vendors, including Main Street Market, Millers’ Farm and Market Garden, Freedom Farms, Organic Meadow, Pasta Tavola


Next year’s property tax bill will be 2.5 per cent higher than 2012, just enough to cover inflationary costs and infrastructure upgrades. The mayor called it “historic” to set the city’s lowest tax increase since amalgamation in 1998. Homeowners’ final tax bill will also depend on what the province does with education taxes and the impact of the recent property assessments. Kingston’s money-losing public golf course is on par for closure after the 2013 season, if councillors adopt a new staff report. It recommends the 9-hole Belle Park Fairways on Montreal Street be replaced with a money-making solar farm and passive recreational space. The recommendation is among four options debated by council at its Dec. 4 meeting. The other options include; keep status quo taxsubsidized golfing at Belle Park, outsource golfing to the private sector, or termi-

generate 62 megawatts of electricity for the Ontario power grid. While area residents say they don’t object to solar farms or renewable energy, they do fear the Samsung proposal will have a direct impact on their quality of life. Council approved a resolution calling for the SolLuce project to respect the city’s Official Plan to not occupy prime agricultural land, and to enter into talks with the community regarding the land use and visual impact. Kingston appears ready to move ahead with its own policy that would ban teenagers from using tanning salons in the city. The premier’s recent resignation, coupled with proroguing the Legislature, have effectively killed an NDP Private Member’s bill that sought to bring similar restrictions province-wide and has left the tanning issue in limbo, once again. Rather than wait for the issue to return to Queen’s Park, the local council was asked this week to launch made-in-Kingston tan ban regulations. In KASSAA senior football action, the La Salle Black Knights defeated the Ernestown Eagles 2510 to capture the AA title, while the Frontenac Falcons defeated the Holy Cross Crusaders 15-4 to earn the AAA title. In junior action, the Sydenham Golden Eagles defeated the La Salle Black Knights 30-0 for the AA title, while the Holy Cross Crusaders earned the AAA title with a 27-14 victory over the Frontenac Falcons. KFL&A Public Health launches its Alcohol Report. It Starts Here: An Alcohol Report for the City of Kingston is intended to jump start the conversation on alcohol use in our community and examine its impact on both individuals and the community at large. It also asks how we as a community can create conditions where alcohol

nate golfing and transform the entire area into a passive park. However, staff favour a fourth option to close the golf course and build a solar farm on 30 of the park’s 56 acres and use the rest of the civic property for passive park uses. United Way Campaign Chair Lloyd Fleming announces that the campaign not only achieved its $3.35 million goal but surpassed it by $53,260. This marks that 14th straight year that the United Way has surpassed its fundraising goal and set a new record for the most money raised in a single-season local fundraising campaign. The City of Kingston will investigate the financial impact of adopting a so-called living wage policy to help lift more people out of homelessness and poverty. Council voted 9-3 to study the local costs of adding about six dollars-an-hour on top of the provinciallyset minimum wage. The $16.29 hourly target for a living wage represents food prices, transportation expenses, affordable housing costs and child care for a single working person to earn $30,543 a year, compared with established poverty income level of $19,218 a year. Most agree the current minimum wage is not high enough to lift someone out of poverty.



use is only a part of our good times. In the KASSAA boys’ volleyball, the RND Panthers defeated the Holy Cross Crusaders in five sets to take the junior title. RND also took the senior title with a three-set victory over LCVI.

ly renovated South Frontenac Township offices. Much of the impetus for the renovations came from construction of the new library building. That freed up space and allowed for improvements for staff and public that utilize the Township offices. The extra space not only allowed for the addition of a lunchroom and wider reception area, but the treasury staff was able to move from its old offices on Keeley Road. Public Works managers (PWM) from the four townships in Frontenac County are working on a plan for the maintenance of major roads in the County, Central Frontenac PWM Mike Richardson told Council at its regular meeting in Sharbot Lake. Richardson said it was felt by the PWMs that they should focus on the areas where they could most benefit all four municipalities. In 2015, Frontenac County will turn 150 years old. To celebrate, County Council established the 150th Anniversary Planning Advisory Committee 2011THE and preparations are beST LOOK inFOR IN STORE ginning to mark the anniversary in style.

The recommendations will now be presented to public sometime in January INtheSTORE for input before being formally adopted. In all, Segsworth made seven proposals in his report, which he said would cost the Township $9.5 million over 20 years as opposed to the status quo which would cost $16.6 million.

Central Frontenac Township recycling could soon be finding its way into Kingston rather than its current destination of HDC in Belleville, if a plan by waste coordinator Kyle Labbett is adopted. Labbett told Council at its regular meeting in Piccadilly that if the Kingston and Area Recycling Centre were used instead of the Belleville facility, the Township would be able to accept all kinds of Styrofoam and plastic bags, increasing the diversion rate at its landfills. Central Frontenac is considering its policing options, including the possibility of joining forces with North Frontenac IN STORE Township, following its regular meeting in Sharbot Lake. In a report to Council, CAO/Clerk

Shawn Trepanier said that policing (through the OPP) is projected to cost Central Frontenac $809,037 in 2012. In 2011, the cost was $702,560 (estimate was $743,506) and in 2010 the cost was $671,364 (estimate was $725,730). Trepanier said he was looking for Council’s direction to inquire with North Frontenac about shared policing costs and to explore a policing contract (which would require a police services board such as South Frontenac Township has) as opposed to the ‘status quo agreement’ that Central now has with the OPP. Central Frontenac Council agrees to budget $5,000 (in 2013) for studies looking into the purchase of Hinchinbrooke School in Parham for use as a recreation centre. At this point it is unclear what the Limestone District School Board would JUST LOOK THEwith estitake for the FOR school, mates ranging from $125,000 to $240,000.

A draft Capital Budget CAO/Clerk Wayne Orr presented to South Frontenac Council this month features an increase of $1,105,605 over 2012, bringing the total ask to $8,864,859 which includes a $360,000 hike in the tax levy (to $3,626,000). The Capital Budget includes all items greater than $5,000. Items under $5,000 are included in the Operating Budget.

December Central Frontenac staff will have its hands full making all the changes Council requested to a proposed re-working of the Township’s Safe Properties Bylaw at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. Council had agreed to take a look at revising the existing bylaw after requests from a special interest group in the Arden area for a property standards bylaw were rejected, but judging by the response to the draft proposals from councillors last week, there is still a lot of re-working to be done. Council sent the draft bylaw back to staff for further revision. Central Frontenac Council agreed to a letter of intent with Queen Street Solar Cooperative at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake that could pave the way to solar panels appearing on many municipal buildings in Frontenac County. Representing the cooperative (named for its Queen Street location in Toronto), Ian Robery told Council his organization was looking to get a foothold in Frontenac County and sees the Olden Garage as a potential first step. The letter of intent said lease payments made to the Township over a 20-year period would total about $160,000.

The curtain rises for aspiring actors Mark Bergin Columnist

EMC Lifestyle - Looking for something to keep yourself or your kids active over the winter months, something that doesn’t resemble running on a treadmill? Consider acting lessons. Bottle Tree Productions is offering acting classes geared to all age levels. There are

two types of programs: acting classes for different ages; and a musical theatre program for 8 – 18 year olds. Adult classes are held Wednesday evenings. Children and teen classes run on Saturday at different times, depending on the child’s age. There are many benefits for teens (and younger children) involved in theatre. The Bottle Tree Productions web site notes: “Teenagers can struggle with self-image issues and, through success in theatre games and in acting out a scene or play, they will develop a sense of accomplishment. When students are allowed to discover the special talent they possess, when these

talents are nurtured by learning fundamental acting skills for the beginner and more sophisticated skills for the more experienced, when the student is allowed to constantly test their skills in front of a group of supportive peers and staff, and where failure is not an impediment to success, but a stepping stone, then the future becomes limitless.” Acting classes do more than improve self-image. “Our Stage Right teen class is a great way to acquire the skills needed to be a successful actor and to learn about the theatre business,” said Anne Marie Mortensen, co-founder of Bottle Tree Productions. Stage Right offers programs for adults, 6 – 10 year olds, 1112 year olds, and teens. “These are held once a week for ten weeks,” said Mortensen. The programs are tailored toward the actors in the class. There may be custom scripts for the youngest and intermediate levels. Those at the intermediate or senior level do scene work from known plays. “Stage Right classes are straight acting classes,” said Mortensen. Mortensen explained that acting gives a person, child or adult, a good creative outlet. “It provides a supportive and encouraging environment,” she said. “It allows them to take risks and fail without being called a failure. It allows a person to grab their creative juice and run with it and be accepted no matter what the outcome is. They can look at their performance and think, ‘I did that well,’ or ‘here’s how I could do better.’” She said that, as we grow up, we forget how to play. “In school, the curriculum is tightly wound around testing and measurement,” she said. “But you can’t give someone a

grade on their bravery or their willingness to take risks. What if a person doesn’t have a natural talent but takes risks and doesn’t score high in an exam while the person beside them has natural talent but takes no risks, how do you measure that willingness to be brave?” Charles Robertson, Bottle Tree’s other co-founder, said he likes working with kids and seeing their skills develop. “It’s extremely rewarding to see a talented kid unlock their potential and giving them permission to unlock it,” he said. “It’s an awesome feeling. Because I’ve been in the arts all my life, it’s nice to give something back to the kids.” He noted that many adults enjoy the social aspect of acting classes. “If they’re interested in theatre, it gives them a chance to hook up with people who are likewise interested. Adults have more fears than kids. Acting gives them added life skills. If someone is a professor, taking an acting class helps them overcome tension they may have about talking to a class. Plus, they get to perform.” Like other arts and skills, it’s all about the basics. If you don’t have the basics you won’t reach higher levels of accomplishment. “One of the major things we stress is fundamentals,” said Robertson. “When we were doing Sound of Music, we stressed over and over that everyone has their own natural ability. It’s important to make sure the audience can see and hear what that natural ability is.” There’s an added benefit for students in the acting classes. It could lead to a role in a real production. “When we do our shows, the acting classes are like an audition for us,” said Robertson. “We see what the quality is of the people who partici-

Bottle Tree Productions’ 2012 Musical Theatre class in rehearsal for Aladdin. pate. We were paying particular attention to casting Sound of Music. We wanted nice kids and adults who would function as a family on stage. When you’ve got a team that works well together, it makes it so much easier for the director.” He pointed out that acting skills include social skills and being able to work on a team. He said acting classes help shy kids develop social skills that are useful in various situations. Robertson said that failure, in itself, can be an accomplishment. “In the end-of-class performance, we don’t care if someone succeeds or fails,” he said. “It’s a learning experience. We don’t put pressure on kids. If they screw up, there’s another day. We need to learn to fail, to fall down and still be in a comfortable spot. We’ve forgotten to let kids learn how to fail and how to come back from messing up.” For children aged 8 to 18 who want to learn about musical theatre, there is a different program that provides an opportunity to take part in a full production of Disney’s Little Mermaid. “It runs like musical theatre

rehearsals,” said Mortensen “We do a full-scale production at L’Octave Theatre at the end of the program. Children get to see how theatre works. They’ll be exposed to costumes, stage work and preparation. Everyone who joins gets a role. The scripts are designed so well, everyone can make their own foray onto stage.” She explained that the musical theatre program trains children to play a role. It also involves a busier schedule of rehearsals three or four times a week. The first musical theatre meeting was on Monday night, but latecomers are welcome. So it’s not too late to join. “It’s a good class to get to see a whole production,” said Mortensen. “As an actor in a real production, children get to work with a stage manager and crew. It’s tightly directed. They learn as many actor chops as they need to get through the musical. It’s geared to the performance and kids enjoying the process.” For information about signing up, email For more information about all the acting classes and training opportunities available, visit www.bottletreeinc. com.

Kingston Road Runners Association rd holds 33 annual race EMC Lifestyle - Kingston’s running community began the New Year on the right foot, so to speak, with their annual Resolution Run. This event was held on Jan. 6 at the Kingston Military Community Sports Centre, and saw a turnout of more than 90 runners. The Resolution Run, which is hosted by the Kingston Road Runners Association (KRRA), has now seen its 33rd year. First place finishers this year were Kevin Coffey and Heather Ostic, who finished with times of 24:56 and 31:16 respectively. The route was new this year, making for a challenging run. Racers completed an 8km course that began at the RMC campus, wound through the Canadian Forces Base Kingston grounds, and also included an up-anddown of Fort Henry’s punishing hill. The event also had a free indoor run/walk for families. Afterwards, participants and

City to streamline approvals process around historic Market Square By Bill Hutchins Reporter

EMC News – New rules are coming into force that reflect the need for “progress and change” around one of Canada’s oldest public squares. Springer Market Square in downtown Kingston was designated a heritage conservation district in 1985, but strict rules aimed at preserving its heritage features and character have often clashed with the needs of private building owners in the area. The year-long battle over approving the redevelopment of the old TD Bank into a Jack Astors restaurant at King and Brock Streets highlighted the heritage versus modernization pressures of the area. At one point, heritage committee members rejected the colour of bricks to be used on the exterior walls of the new restaurant because it didn’t fit in with the heritage look of the square. Extensive renovations to buildings around the square’s

perimeter, protected views of City Hall and its clock tower, open-air farmers market, consistent scale and massing of commercial buildings, store signage and external illumination, and street-level commercial uses will remain strictly regulated, which require the ultimate approval of city council. However, building owners won’t have as many hoops to jump through for smaller improvements they want to make. The approvals process will be streamlined and simplified. City officials are in the process of updating the Market Square plan that governs new development and building alteration permits within the downtown conservation district, bounded by King, Brock, Ontario and Market Streets. “This Plan outlines how we can continue to treasure our history, while allowing for progress and change,” explained Shirley Bailey, the city’s manager of heritage and urban design.

Among other things, the revised plan would allow property owners to do minor alterations to 19th century buildings without a heritage permit. This includes; -re-painting exterior wood, stucco or metal finishes in the same or similar colour; -installing seasonal structures such as chairs, tables and umbrellas, plus bleachers and boards for the ice rink; -interior alterations; -minor landscaping. “Heritage districts are not static. They change and they grow and evolve over time,” said Ryan Leary, a senior heritage planner. The process of updating the 27 year old conservation district plan was the focus of a public meeting late last year. “This area has a special character, and it’s something we are trying to protect and enhance through these new guidelines,” Leary added. Kingston’s Market Square can trace its origins as marketplace to 1801.

Kingston Taxi Commission aims to launch accessible cab service this year By Bill Hutchins Reporter

EMC News – Accessible taxis are expected to appear on Kingston streets this year, but it may require some form of municipal subsidy to keep the service rolling. The latest proposal under study by the Kingston-area Taxi Commission is for local cab companies to come up with a plan to put three wheelchair-accessible cabs on the roads, possibly with the help of a third party operator, and to present the findings to the commission this month. “It was determined that 3 accessible plates is the equivalent to approximately 1.5 percent of the total taxi fleet,” according to a report by Julie Salter-Keane, the city’s accessibility compliance project manager. The push for accessible taxis has been ongoing for at least five years. Many of the city’s mobility challenged residents have long complained they are unfairly confined to their homes at certain times of the day,

and unable to access suitable transportation. The city runs Kingston Access Bus but the service usually requires pre-booking two weeks in advance and does not operate 24 hours a day. The one-way cash fare is $2.50. Kingston Transit is also not a realistic solution for many disabled people in power scooters or wheelchairs. Calling a cab would solve the dilemma, but it could be a costly venture. Taxi commission officials say the cost of operating ondemand accessible taxis has always been prohibitive to providing the service. Cab companies may be hesitant to provide a service with high operating costs and limited revenues. However, providing a municipal tax subsidy is one solution to bridge the gap. The city already subsidizes both Kingston Access Bus and Kingston Transit through property taxes, and councillors may consider accessible taxis as a necessary cost. It is poised to become a mandatory service provi-

sion in a few years. Under the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, municipalities that license taxicabs will be required to provide on-demand taxis for persons with disabilities by 2015. City officials are pushing to launch the service well in advance of the provincial mandate. If the local cab companies – Amey’s, Modern and Kingston & Amherst – do not voluntarily provide accessibility options by early this year, the Taxi Commission has the authority to order them to provide it. “If the proposal from the brokers is not forthcoming, the Taxi Commission may consider, without the input of the brokers, amending he taxi bylaw to require accessible taxis by the end of 2013,” according to SalterKeane. At this point, the commission is not planning to use a heavy legislative hand on the cab companies. The commission next meets Wednesday, January 16 in city hall to discuss the feasibility, cost and timeline of launching accessible cabs.

Consider adding one of these animals to your family Velma is a two-year-old, female Beagle. This little lass just wants to be snuggled and held close. She is easily startled by quick movements so would prefer a mature home to help her settle in. She would love a fenced yard where she can stretch her legs and enjoy the sunshine, but would be equally comfortable spending time on the couch or in a cozy dog bed. She would probably prefer to be the only pet in the home..

There is more to the problems at Frontenac County than meets the eye By Margaret Knott Correspondent

EMC news- The vote of non confidence against Warden Janet

Gutowski which passed (7-2) at the December meeting of Frontenac County council really happened, at which time she was also asked to vacate the Wardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

chair. That vote clearly indicated that there are problems at the County. Mayor Denis Doyle and Deputy Mayor David Jones ( Howe Island) represent Fronte-

nac Islands at the county. Deputy Mayor David Jones is prepared to do just about anything to expose County problems and resolve them. He is fuming that at the December meeting, Mayor Doyle resigned , â&#x20AC;&#x153;as per traditionâ&#x20AC;? after serving one year as the Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deputy Warden, and the Warden, Janet Gutowski DID NOT. Gutowkski chose instead to disregard the long held â&#x20AC;&#x153;as per traditionâ&#x20AC;? approach and to remain â&#x20AC;&#x153;In The Chairâ&#x20AC;? until the next election (2014). That decision, while legal according to the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s procedural by-law, effectively prevents Doyle or any of the other three mayors to rotate through the position of warden during their term of office, â&#x20AC;&#x153;as per tradition.â&#x20AC;? Wardens are elected by their peers, a process that does acknowledge that all are equal as county councillors to serve as Warden. Resigning and vacating the chair would have permitted the next Frontenac Township Mayor to take their place in the rotation (in this instance Denis Doyle). Her decision assumes under the circumstances that only she, Janet Gutowski, can or should hold the position. The requested apology to council and to Mayor Doyle did not happen. Instead the Warden clearly stated her intent to continue in the job. Councillor Clayton, Mayor of North Frontenac replaces Mayor

Doyle as Deputy WardenJones does not have kind words for Warden Gutowski, or for the Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CAO E. Savill for that matter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Warden Gutowskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dictatorial manner, duplicity and disregard for standing orders has to be stopped or Council will become dysfunctional,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;other agenda at playâ&#x20AC;? (noted at December meeting)â&#x20AC;? is that of our CAO who would not want a reformist Warden such as Councillor Doyle or Deputy Warden Clayton in the Chair,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact remains our Procedure By-Law permits an elected Warden to the four year term of Council but â&#x20AC;&#x153;traditionâ&#x20AC;?...speaks to collaboration and cooperation, two of Councillor Gutowskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oft quoted buzz words. Notwithstanding that, Councillor Gutowski has frequently contravened the By-Law and manipulated Council, all transgressions covered in the Motion of non Confidence.â&#x20AC;? Jones went on to say that the county bureaucracy continues to grow, despite a decrease in the 2011 census, absorbing taxes with questionable net tangible benefit to the taxpayers of Frontenac County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve inherited this behemoth( large beast)from previous Councils and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to take back the farm or before long weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll

see an application for expanded premises in Glenburnie! â&#x20AC;&#x153; â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is my intention As Vice Chair of the County Council Finance Committee to propose that Council commission an independent audit of accounts and assess the very high reserve levels.â&#x20AC;? ( Councillor Clayton is Chair of the committee ) â&#x20AC;&#x153; I will also ask that council review the vaunted ICSP (Integrated Community Sustainability Program) plans and spending to ensure the Federal Gas Tax money is transferred directly to the Townships (roads, bridge, ferries). Real Economic Development should remain a high priority but one capable of delivering net tangible benefits to all Frontenac Townships,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Further I will ask that County Council commission an independent operational review of all County departments, with the aim to refocus on core functions, their deliverables and, economic accountability.â&#x20AC;? According to Jones , many of his views are shared by colleagues on County Council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is why I firmly believe, despite Warden Gutowskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s antics, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;another agenda at play here,â&#x20AC;? he concluded.

HOROSCOPES ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, you may have to work a little harder to get what you want, but the results will be worth it. Focus your attention on making a name for yourself in the business sector. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 There is no stopping you when you have a goal in mind, Taurus. Although you may be ambitious, just be mindful of other people in your path as you go. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Be honest with your feelings this week, Gemini. Someone close to you is interested in learning more about the way you operate. This could strengthen a friendship. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bite off more than you can chew, Cancer. Otherwise you could be left with a long to-do list and not enough energy to get the job done. Consider paring down tasks. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, although you may have rest and recreation on the brain, celestial forces are pushing you in the opposite direction. Busy days are ahead, so rest later. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 You have put too much effort into something to abandon your plans now, Virgo. Rethink quitting early on. Maybe a friend can carry you over the finish line. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Surround yourself with lots of friends when you cannot have family near, Libra. This will help keep feelings of loneliness from creeping in during quiet moments. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, you may need to concede to a difference of opinion this week when you simply cannot resolve something amicably. Redirect attention on a craft or pastime. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, sometimes you tend to be brutally honest with others. While honesty is an admirable trait, this week you may need to censor what you say to avoid hurt feelings. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Taking a circuitous route will land you at the finish a little behind others, Capricorn. But you will get to the end nevertheless. Trust your instincts with this one. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, you probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to rest your mind until you square away all of your finances and make a budget for the new year. Take on the job this week. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Introspection leads you on a mini-quest to find a creative outlet, Pisces. Play to your strengths and some ideas will surface.
