High Rollers: OLG gets shortlist of casino operators for this region By Bill Hutchins Reporter

Timbit hockey tournament Pg. 21

EMC News – The process of selecting a private operator to own and manage casinos in three separate gaming zones in eastern Ontario has moved to the next level. A pre-qualification phase, launched by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) last summer, ended March 7. This phase identified a shortlist of suitable operators, but only one will be chosen to manage a “gaming bundle” in three zones that cover the Peterbor-

ough, Belleville/Quinte West and the Kingston/Thousand Islands areas. “They’re looking for qualified bidders for those areas – one operator to operate all of those facilities,” explained Cynthia Beach, the city commissioner overseeing Kingston’s bid as a willing host gambling centre. The OLG is expected to issue a request for proposals this summer to eventually choose one high rolling operator for all three gaming zones. But it could be 2014 before the operator identifies potential locations. “It’s not the city’s process so

they’ve indicated that we could hear by the end of the year or the beginning of next year on the operators and the potential locations,” Beach explained. However, Kingston Mayor Mark Gerretsen says some unidentified companies have already been scouting locations around the city “There has been some serious interest. KEDCO (the city’s economic development agency) is taking the lead. They’re the best in knowing where we have areas for development. KEDCO is showing people around.”

The mayor says he is deliberately staying out of the site selection process to avoid any perception of political interference, and is referring all casino inquiries to KEDCO. The OLG’s website spells out the details of what it’s expecting the preferred casino operator to provide gambling customers, including 600 slot machines and 300 gaming tables for the Kingston/Thousand Islands zone. “OLG believes that gaming bundle 2 (from Peterborough to ThouContinued on page 18

Westbrook Dome’s delay prompts city officials to consider plan B

which means that the dome would only be erected and operated during the fall and winter months,” according to the staff report. The city has already approved a budget to construct an artificial field at John Machin and will ask a private partner to put up the money to purchase, install and operate the inflatable dome structure. City officials say building a sports dome on municipal land will eventually happen, adding they’d rather see the Westbrook dome completed first. Either way, they say it’s important to provide amenities for the indoor leagues by the end of this year. They’d like to avoid constructing two sports domes simultaneously until the market demand will support them. “Based on past research and studies, staff are unsure if there is sufficient demand in the community to support two indoor sports facilities at this time,” staff wrote. Last year, councillors instructed staff to work closely with the Westbrook dome proponents to ensure their project gets built first, with a longer-term plan to open the east end sports dome as the market demand grows.

EMC News – There could soon be another dome sprouting up on Kingston’s skyline. The city is looking to partner with a private company to build and manage a sports dome over its artificial field at John Machin Park. “This type of public/private partnership is a standard model found in a number of other municipalities and would have no additional financial impacts on the city,” according to a staff report for the March 19 council meeting. The push for an air supported dome in Kingston’s east end stems from municipal concerns about the pace of a similar indoor field project by owners of the Westbrook Golf Club. They have pursued construction of the 100-acre Westbrook Dome and Sports Campus since last year, but the project appears to have stalled in red tape between the builders and City Hall. City officials won’t issue a building permit until several mechanical and engineering concerns with the project are dealt with, and standard development charges and building fees are paid. According to the owners of the Westbrook dome, building code requirements and a fire suppression system have pushed the project cost to $5 million, one million dollars more than planned. However, they insist the project will be

completed this fall, in time for the next indoor sports season. “The process has certainly taken more time than we ever would have envisioned,” according to a February 7 report authored by Ken and Anita Harnden. They say the site clearing process has already begun, and $550,000 in development charges will be paid once a building permit is approved. “Our facility will be ready for all user groups for the 2013/2014 winter sessions.” They say the Westbrook dome will serve over 10,000 members of indoor clubs such as soccer, rugby, golf, football, cycling, volleyball and baseball. Kingston soccer and other sports leagues have been without an indoor venue since the privately-run Quarry Sportsplex soccer dome on Division Street closed three years ago. Many clubs either use school gymnasium space, or travel to the sports dome in Belleville. Despite assurances the Westbrook project will go ahead, the city is now insisting on a firm deadline to get it started. If mandatory approvals and fees for the Westbrook dome are not in place by April 15, the city’s recreation and leisure department intends to build its own facility. Staff are asking council to launch a Request for Proposals to find a suitable private partner to build an indoor facility at John Machin Park, beside the St. Lawrence Business Park, which is already home to several outdoor soccer fields. “This operation would be seasonal COVER A BLOCK TOP OF PAGE 100%

Seeing purple through the pain Mark Bergin Correspondent @markaidanbergin

EMC News - If emotional pain could be measured, the Tobin family would break the scales. Chelsea Tobin died last year at the age of 23. Her parents, Wendy and Fred, and her sister, Courtney, are left wondering how life dealt this disastrous hand to them. This is their story. There was one rule in our interview: If at any point, it becomes too painful, simply say, “No, I can’t go there.” The pain was raw, but it is an important part of their story. They never balked. There were many moments of silence and minutes of sobbing as their story unfolded over a few hours. Imagine entering your 23-year-old daughter’s room at 5 a.m. to wake her to prepare for the big trip to Potsdam, N.Y. for her graduation with her master’s degree in education (with distinction) and finding her dead. That’s exactly what happened to Wendy Tobin last May. As she recounts the moments of finding her lifeless child, tears fill her eyes. Silence. She wipes the flow of tears while reliving the moments of realizing her firstborn daughter had passed from this world. “You don’t get over it, you get through it,” says Fred. As they travel their road of grief, with all of its potholes and sudden turns, the Tobin family has goals: to honour Chelsea and what she would have wanted; to not hide their feelings; and to educate the world about Sudden, Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). Fond memories

of Chelsea and their efforts in epilepsy awareness bring them hope. “She was so young and on the cusp of so much,” says Wendy. “She had finished her last teaching placement and she was about to graduate with her master’s degree. She was so excited that there was a new competition for teachers with the Limestone board coming up in August.” At the age of nine, Chelsea felt her leg become wobbly and she fell at school. She said her leg was asleep. No one was too concerned. But not long after, she was found on the floor, motionless. Epilepsy affects approximately one in 100 people. Chelsea Tobin was one of them. An electroencephalogram and MRI and other testing confirmed the diagnosis. “The first six months were hell,” says Wendy. “We’d try one medication and she’d have an allergic reaction. When we stopped the medication cold turkey, Chelsea’s seizures became constant. We tried other medications and they had awful side effects.” They finally found meds that worked without horrendous side effects. Around that time, Chelsea, an active child, wanted to try karate. “Once she tried karate, it became her thing,” says Wendy. “She’d just been diagnosed with epilepsy six months earlier. We thought karate would be good for her. She liked the discipline and really got into Japanese culture and tradition.” At the age of 12, Chelsea began kobudo (weapons) training. In 2004, at the age of 16, Chelsea achieved her first degree black belt in karate. She travelled to Japan for an intense karate training program. She became the first Canadian woman to achieve a black belt in both Okinawan

kobudo and karate. In 2008, she was awarded nidan, a second degree black belt. She had fulfilled the requirements for her sandan, third degree, black belt in 2011. It was awarded posthumously. She is being recognized by the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai (DNBK), a martial arts governing body in Japan. “Chelsea is being enshrined in the Martial Arts Hall of Fame in Kyoto,” says Wendy. “Hanshi (Grand Master) Hamada is coming to Norfolk, Virginia for a Kensho Kai ceremony on March

24.” They believe that Chelsea is the youngest person, and the only woman, ever honoured in this way. A Chelsea Tobin Cup of Excellence for awarding at DNBK international events has been established. “She’s in the company of these 80 and 90-year-old Japanese men, Hanshi level,” says Wendy. “They have also awarded her the title of Renshi (skilled person/expert teacher).” In her 23 years, Chelsea Tobin accomplished what usually takes several

decades for most martial arts practitioners. After puberty, Chelsea’s seizures changed. They became exclusively hypnagogic, which meant they happened at night. They also went from partial to generalized grand mal seizures. “For Fred and I, and Courtney, we took some comfort that she was safe in her bed,” explains Wendy. “But over the last several years, she was having more frequent seizures. It impacted her qualContinued on page 6

Seeing purple through the pain of SUDEP they’re reluctant to talk about it. “If you smoke, have diabetes or are overweight, the medical community can’t wait to tell you the risk factors,” says Fred. “It is the patient’s right to know about SUDEP.

Well, our first daughter died when she thought she was safe in her bed. We didn’t know the risk, and that’s not right.” The family describes the fateful time. “I still have the last text message from Chelsea on my phone,” says Wendy. “Courtney and I were shopping the day before grad, and Chelsea wondered where we were and asked, ‘Did you guys die or something?’” Wendy laughs. It quickly turns to tears. “We’ve learned a lot about grief. All of our hearts are broken. There’s a hole that will never be filled.” There’s a pause as the pain fills the room.

How to Avoid Costly Housing Mistakes Before and After a Divorce

Kingston - Divorce is rarely easy and often means a lot of difficult decisions. One of the most important decisions is what to do about the house. In the midst of the heavy emotional and financial turmoil, what you need most is some non-emotional, straightforward, specific information and answers. Once you know how a divorce affects your home, your mortgage and taxes, critical decisions are easier. Neutral, third party information can help you make logical, rather than emotional, decisions. Probably the first decision is whether you want to continue living in the house. Will the familiar surroundings bring you comfort and emotional security, or unpleasant memories? Do you want to minimize change by staying where you are, or sell your home and move to a new place that offers a new start? Only you can answer those questions, but there will almost certainly be some financial

repercussions to your decision process. What can you afford? Can you manage the old house on your new budget? Is refinancing possible? Or is it better to sell and buy? How much house can buy on your new budget? To help you know what questions you should ask and how to arrive at the right answer for your specific situation, a FREE special report has been prepared by industry experts entitled "Divorce: What You Need to Know About Your House, Your Mortgage and Taxes".

was going to wear for graduation. “I ironed her gown and new dress. She was so excited to be graduating with distinction. The four of us had a quiet evening at home. It was…,” Wendy pauses to let more sadness escape. “I went to bed early and looked in on Chelsea. She was in bed doing Soduko. I gave her my usual ‘don’t be up late.’ One of the triggers for seizures is lack of sleep. Chelsea was a nighthawk. She’d often read or work on her computer late into the night.” Courtney interrupts. “We weren’t just sisters. We were best friends. I’d often go in late at night, I’d curl up in bed with her and take her pen away from her. I’d kiss her goodnight and tell her to get her light off or she would look bad for her students she was teaching. I have difficulty falling asleep, so I was conscious and maybe 15 feet away from my sister when she died.” The next part of the story, the moment when Wendy and Fred find their daughter dead, is simply too personal to recount in print. The pain: unimaginable. It’s followed by a whirlwind of activity as paramedics, police and firefighters arrive. “The EMT looked at us and just said, ‘I’m sorry’,” says Fred. “The rest of the day was a blur. The body had to stay there until the coroner arrived. The police officers (Sgt. Joe Giorno and Cst. Jay Hawley) were phenomenal. One of them said two things that were so helpful. He said, ‘People will say stupid things and they’re not trying to say stupid things. They’re trying to comfort you. Just thank them and let it go.’ The second thing he said was, ‘Don’t play the blame game. You can eat yourself up with should have, could have.’ They were phenomenal. I think of this every time I’m reading about someone complaining about a police officer. These guys were so good.” Wendy explains that after the coroner completed his examination and it was time for the body to be removed from the home, the police officers told the family, “You don’t need to see this,” and they took them to the front room, away from the scene. Courtney says when the paramedics first arrived she pleaded with them to save her sister. “A paramedic and a firefighter just looked at me and said, ‘I’m sorry.’ I collapsed and a firefighter caught me before I hit my head. I went through the rest of the next couple of weeks in numb shock.” The next difficult task was tell-

ing Chelsea’s fiancée, Kyle, who had wise words for everyone. The family was confused about what kind of funeral service to provide. “Kyle said she would want us to do whatever makes the most people comfortable,” says Wendy. Now, the Tobin’s honour their daughter. “We honour her in so many ways,” says Wendy. “Every time we have a drink, we send a ‘Cheers!’ to Chelsea. We each wear a purple bracelet. We think about her all the time. We feel sad and cry when we need to. There are so many good memories.” Courtney describes a stuffed animal that reminds her of her sister. “I sleep with my stuffed moose. Chelsea gave Elliott to me for Christmas a couple of years ago. She came into my room a couple of days before Christmas. She knew I was going through a rough time. She kissed me and gave me this moose. I sleep with him and say, ‘Goodnight Chelsea’ every night.” What would the Tobin family like to see come from their personal tragedy? They explain that in 2008, motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy, a nine-year-old girl named Cassidy Megan in Nova Scotia started the idea of holding a Purple Day for Epilepsy. In June 2012, the Parliament of Canada passed the Purple Day Act, recognizing March 26 as a national day of epilepsy awareness. “The whole point of Purple Day is to raise awareness,” says Wendy. “I want people to know what we’ve discovered. It’s not always benign. Epilepsy can kill people. On the other hand, it never stopped Chelsea from doing anything. Chelsea loved everything about life. She was so affectionate and could never have too many hugs. She was so excited about starting her teaching career. She was so in love with Kyle and with getting married. As parents, we look at what we’re missing, but we’ve said many times, we have no regrets. And we thank God that we had that Friday night together as a family.” What can people do to help? For a start, wear purple or paint your nails purple on March 26 to show support for people living with seizure disorders. Throughout this month, there’s a program called Pesky Pennies run by the Epilepsy Resource Centre and the Kingston Community Credit Union (KCCU). Drop into in any KCCU and donate your pennies.

Wear purple March 26 for epilepsy awareness By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

EMC Events - Every day, 38 Canadians will learn they have epilepsy, a neurological disorder that affects an estimated 50 million people worldwide. Yet epilepsy is still a widely misunderstood condition. March 26 has been designated “Purple Day” for epilepsy awareness; on it, Canadians are encouraged to wear purple in order to both show support for those living with epilepsy, and get people talking about the disorder. “Because there are a lot of misunderstandings [about epilepsy] people tend not to talk about it,” explains Susan Harrison, executive director of the Epilepsy & Seizure Disorder Resource Centre of Southeastern Ontario. “Then that just perpetuates the misunderstanding.” Harrison points out that in relative terms, it wasn’t so long ago that epilepsy was thought to be connected with curses and the devil. Today, the shadow of this stigma still hangs over those living with the disorder. “At the start of the [20th] century, people with epilepsy still weren’t allowed to get married,” she says. “There were laws against it in U.S. People were also sterilized who had epilepsy. That’s 100 years ago now, but it’s not that long ago. As a result, people are still really fearful that if they start disclosing their epilepsy there will be all these assumptions that come along with it that are often wrong.” Harrison notes that people often assume those with epilepsy cannot drive, work or live full lives. This, she says, is not true of the majority of people living with the condition. In fact, anyone who is seizure-free for six months is able to drive a car. “I have epilepsy myself and I drive, I work, and live a fairly normal, healthy life,” Harrison says. “People don’t tend to imagine that. On the other hand, there are people who have seizures every day that are out of control and their lives

are just devastated by the disorder.” Purple Day is also intended to quash common misconceptions about the kinds of first aid measures that should be taken when someone is having a seizure, as well as educate members of the public on the many different kinds of seizures that exist and what they look like. “When people picture a seizure they tend to think of someone on the ground having a full, convulsive seizure because that’s what they’ve seen in movies and on TV,” Harrison says. “In fact, there are many, many different types of seizures.” She explains that popular culture has also helped spread misinformation regarding what should be done when someone is having a convulsive seizure. “A lot of times on TV you still see people grab someone and hold them down,” Harrison says. “You never want to do that. Also, you should never put anything in their mouth - that’s another really common myth about seizure first aid.” In addition, Harrison notes that if you know the person has epilepsy, it is not necessary to call an ambulance unless the seizure lasts longer than five minutes, as most will stop on their own. She explains that the correct course of action to take if someone is having a convulsive seizure is: stay calm; do not restrain the person having the seizure; move sharp objects out of their way; do not put anything in their mouth; roll the person onto their side and place something soft under their head; let the seizure take its course; if the seizure lasts longer than five minutes or repeats, call for medical attention. “As they’re coming out of the seizure, the person’s probably going to be very confused and very tired, so it’s a matter of staying with them and reassuring them,” Harrison says. “Seizures can be scary to see for someone who hasn’t seen one, and so generally the most important things to remember are to stay calm and the less you

In Our Opinion

Bending my own rules Kristen Coughlar Assistant Editor

kcoughlar@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial – As a child, my favourite movie was Beauty and the Beast. I was seven-years-old when the 1991 Disney version of this traditional fairytale first came out. I’ve watched a hundred of times over as a once handsome prince attempts to earn the love of a beautiful young woman, Belle, in order to break the curse that has transformed him into a hideous beast. As a kid, I delighted in the characters of Lumiére, the candelabra, and Fifi, the feather duster. If you were to ask my brother, and likely my mother as well, both would probably prefer never to set eyes on Belle or the Beast again. Since my pre-teen days watching Beauty and the Beast and other Disney classics, like Alice in Wonderland, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and Cinderella, I haven’t watched many animated films. In first year university, I got roped into watching Finding Nemo with a group of friends, and just over six years ago, I hit the theatre with my cousin Aidan to watch Happy Feet. That’s it. Oh, I also saw Shrek at

some point. Somewhere along the way I developed a rule for myself regarding animated children’s films, not a hard-and-fast rule but more of a general guideline. I decided that unless attending with children, I was going to refrain from watching animated feature films. I figured there would come a time in my life where I would watch more than my fair share of family films. I have heard stories from friends and family with kids about suffering through endless hours of TV cartoons and animated movies; my own mother endured the same with Beauty and the Beast. Now, a grown woman, I can picture her sitting on the couch wanting to pull her hair out after watching my favourite movie for the hundredth time. Those who follow my column on a regular basis will know that I like my TV and movies. If, at some point in the future, my TV is to be taken over by cartoon characters and my trips to the movie theatre will based on what child-friendly shows are playing, I should take advantage of the time I have now to enjoy more adult programming. This being said, someone recently raised a good point regarding my “no animated TV or movies” guideline. Now is the time to watch some of the animated films that have received high praise from

critics and audiences alike. After all, how are these films to join the likes of my favourite Disney classics—which I will no doubt want to share with my future children— if I don’t first give them a shot. My children’s thoughts will no doubt be consumed by the movies that are set to hit theatres, not those that have come and gone. So, I recently strayed from my guideline. Tangled, a 2010 Disney film based on the fairy tale Rapunzel, was on TV a month or two ago. I decided to PVR it, and two weeks ago, during a relaxing Sunday afternoon, I curled up on the couch to watch the animated film starring Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi. I remembered hearing the film was good. In fact, it received a critic rating of 90 per cent, and an audience rating of 87 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes. I also enjoyed the film. It was cute, and a nice way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. In light of this good experience, I think I am going to amend the rule I created some time ago. I won’t be rushing out to watch every new animated film that hits theatres, but I’d be willing to take one in every so often on those relaxing Sundays spent in front of the tube. I’ve heard that WALL-E, Up, and Brave have all been good. If anyone has any other suggestions, please feel free to let me know at kcoughlar@ theheritageemc.ca

Better public service, fewer public service announcements

EMC Editorial - Anyone who watches TV is likely aware of how Canada’s Economic Action Plan purports to be “working for them”. In fact, it was recently reported that the current federal government spends more on TV and media advertising than any government that has come before it - and by a considerable margin. Earlier this month, the Canadian Press reported that from 2005 to 2006, the federal government spent $41.3 million on advertising. That number almost doubled to $78.5 million over 2012-2013, bringing the total to $546.8 million for the Harper Government’s first six years in office. These expenditures occur without parliamentary oversight, meaning that the budget may fluctuate according the controllers’ whims. We believe this kind of spending is irresponsible, especially when considered in the light of the recent swath of cuts to frontline government services. Take, for example, the case of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC). In 2012-2013, its advertising budget was increased by a large margin. The department even ran a com-

mercial during the advertising holy grail: The Super Bowl. On the other hand, HRSDC was one of the departments hardest hit by recent cutbacks. According the CBC, 5,106 full-time positions were eliminated in 2012. This accounts for just under half of the total federal government job losses, and has inevitably resulted in longer claim backlogs and greater difficulties reaching a telephone agent. We agree with a growing number of Canadians viewing this advertising campaign with suspicion. We believe it has less to do with informing the public about how to access legislated resources, and more with spreading a politicized message concerning the current government’s handling of the global economic crisis and its surrounding issues. We feel the advertising budget would be better spent improving access to government services. Furthermore, if public service announcements are required, their focus should be on informing citizens of broader government plans, rather than citing boutique tax credits as sterling examples of government effectiveness.

Arena naming rights:

One stays the same, another gets longer title By Bill Hutchins Reporter

EMC News – Kingston’s multiplex will have the same name for another five years. Invista Canada has agreed to keep its corporate title attached to the four-pad arena on Gardiners Road. It was the only company that submitted a new offer for naming rights to the multiplex at a cost of $221,000 over five years. “As this was one of the City’s first naming rights experiences, there was no renewal clause contained in the existing agreement,” according to a staff report to council March 19. The city opened the naming deal to bidders earlier this year, and Invista’s offer was only one received by the submission deadline of February 20. Invista’s current sponsorship deal expires at the end of April, and the new agreement will ensure the facility will continue to be known as the Invista Centre until 2018. The naming rights fee is worked into the Invista Centre’s operating budget, which still requires an annual tax

subsidy of $983,000. Meanwhile, there will be an adjustment to the corporate name that’s attached to the downtown sports and entertainment centre. The name will be rebranded to ‘Rogers K-Rock Centre’ to reflect an ownership change at the local radio station. “In order to reflect their corporate identity, Rogers has expressed a desire to change the name of the facility from the “K-Rock Centre” to the “Rogers K-Rock Centre” and to amend the signage and logos, at their cost,” according to properties commissioner Denis Leger. Three exterior marquee signs will be altered to reflect the new and longer title, while interior logos will be changed as well. The deal, which is supported by arena operator SMG Canada, was expected to get city council’s approval this week. K-Rock Centre owns the naming rights to the city’s flagship arena for ten years, and is midway through its deal. According to the original terms, the radio station will give the city up to $3.3 million in cash and in-kind

services. K-Rock will spend $1.7 million in cash for the actual naming rights ($150,000 a year with a 3 percent annual escalation), plus another $1.6 million for ‘in kind’ products or services such as free advertising. K-Rock also gets a corporate suite that includes seating for 12 with a private bar and television screens, 12 days a year to use the entire facility rent-free, 24 complimentary tickets to all shows (excluding Kingston Frontenacs games), plus name recognition on all printed material and wayfinding signs. The city is also pursuing the sale of corporate naming rights to its Outdoor Aquatic Centre, which has attracted over 30,000 visitors since it opened in 2011. It’s unclear how much money the city hopes to raise through a corporate donor at its only outdoor aquatic centre, but it would like a naming rights deal to be finalized in time for when the aquatic centre reopens at the end of May. Interested bidders were taken on a tour of the pool and waterslide facility last week. The deadline for submissions is March 27.

Christian voices unite for charity By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

gether in this way is something that has been important to him during his entire career as a reverend. “I’m a Presbyterian minister so I get paid by the Presbyterian church,” he says. “But I’m also paid to be available to people of the greater community...What is really bothersome to me is if churches are in competition. I don’t feel we need to be on competition. I would like people to be a part of churches working together.” Boonstra explains that the cooperation and togetherness exemplified by both the Hymn Festival and the multi-denominational charities it will support are at the heart of the Christian faith. “Jesus says that we are to be the salt of the world,” he says. “And salt gives a good flavour. I do not think that we should change the world into salt - that’s too salty. But I think that Christians working together to serve the community makes for a more enriched community and a healthier community. Our task is not to try to draw people into our own group...but to be there to say, ‘how can we serve the community?’” In this spirit, Boonstra hopes as many people as possible will come join St. Andrew’s for the Hymn Festival: “I’d love to see people come out to this because 20 people singing together is really nice, but it’s so powerful when 200 or even 300 people come out. It adds so much to it. I think most of the churches are struggling with attendance and the groups are always small, so once in a while it’s encouraging to have a large number. It brings some enthusiasm and excitement.”

EMC Events - Few things are more powerful than music to bring people together for a great cause. Reverend Tony Boonstra of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church is intent on using this power to unite Kingston’s Christian community, and help out those in need while doing so, by holding a special Hymn Festival Sunday at 7 p.m. at St. Andrew’s. The theme of the evening will be the well-known, ageless hymns that hold a special place in the hearts of Christians from all denominations. Boonstra is hoping to bring together hundreds of voices to sing hymns such as Amazing Grace, How Great Thou Art and What A Friend We Have in Jesus. “I meet people all the time that are looking to have the old hymns sung,” he says. “Most of the churches continue to bring in new hymns that relate quite a bit to the present-day context, but some of these old favourites that people remember from childhood have emotional appeal...they bring back a lot of memories.” There will be no charge for the event, but people are encouraged to make contributions to the Kingston Street Mission and the Sunday evening meals program, both of which are run out of St. Andrew’s but organized by Christians of all denominations, as well as to bring a non-perishable items for the food bank. “I don’t want the Christian community to come together to support St. Andrew’s,” Boonstra notes. “We want to give them the opportunity to do something that everybody in the community can tap into.” Reverend Tony Boonstra.

REMARKABLE RECYCLERS

SUSTAINABLE TURFCARE

City wants to recognize Remarkable Recyclers

Sustainable Turfcare Management Plan-Pilot Project

This spring, the City is again running its Remarkable Recyclers program, which recognizes expert waste sorters for their good work diverting waste from landfill. Households can register to participate by emailing dochej@cityofkingston.ca, or by calling the City’s Customer Service Centre at 613-546-0000 by April 2.

Win a Kobo E-Reader!

Participating households will have their curbside collectibles audited for sorting accuracy the week of April 8 to 12 – that’s the week before Earth Week. If you have sorted your waste correctly and set out one bag of garbage or less, your household will get new “Remarkable Recycler” Blue and Grey Boxes, and your name will be entered in a random draw for a Kobo e-reader. To be eligible, participants must live in a single family home with curbside recycling and garbage pick-up. Be reminded what to put out when: www.CityofKingston.ca/collection Don’t know where it goes? Use the Waste Sorting Lookup at www.CityofKingston.ca/waste

On March 4 and 6 the City hosted public information sessions on a Sustainable Turfcare Management Plan which included a recommendation that the development of turf naturalization areas be considered within 27 candidate parks. Based on public feedback, five (5) parks were identified as appropriate pilot sites for a managed turf naturalization program. Pilot projects test new initiatives from which effectiveness and public satisfaction are measured. The following five sites are each proposed to contain one area of naturalization. No trees are proposed to be removed under the program. The pilot sites are proposed within the following parks: • Cloverdale, Edenwood, Lawrence, Meadowbrook and Snider Parks. Turf naturalization is part of a sustainability initiative and is recommended for areas within our parks that are: not actively programmed; adjacent to watercourses; steeply graded; or are in areas which have proven difficult to maintain. Turf naturalization promotes the practice of establishing meadow grass areas and maintaining them seasonally. The areas selected for naturalization would be over seeded with meadow seed blends chosen to respond well to local conditions. Debris and noxious weeds would be removed as needed.

Places to explore and things to experience

This dragon is friendly For anyone familiar with House of Dragon, you probably know Hui Lai Na (Lorna), the hostess who always greeted you at the previous location. She’s still on staff. Lorna’s been there 13 years. I asked her why she’s stayed so long. “If I wasn’t here, I wouldn’t be happy,” she said. “I come to work and it makes me happy to be here.” Lorna has a gentle kindness about her and I was relieved to see that she was still with House of Dragon in its new location. House of Dragon operates buffet style and the selection is diverse. Everything’s deliciously fresh. The moo goo gai pan features crisp veggies. The black pepper steak is tender. One of my favourite items is the tofu with mixed vegetables. That’s probably because I love bok choy, and the dish featured the baby type. The base of the bok choy was crisp and obviously fresh. The wanton soup, vegetable chow mein, Singapore lo mein, chicken fried rice and even the plain soft noodles are second to none. I wanted to try as many items as possible, so had small portions of almost everything. I have to admit, I did go back for seconds of the chicken balls. And the Singapore lo mein. And the tofu with mixed vegetables. I can’t get enough of good bok choy. I put Simon Leung on the spot and asked about his own favourites. “The pepper steak, barbecue pork and Singapore lo mein,” he said. “At the buffet, we try to feed everyone with lots of different foods. There’s something there for everyone.” He’s not kidding. In fact, you’ll find many non-Chinese specialties like home fries, onion rings,

cheese pizza and chicken wings in the large smorgasbord. The deep fried shrimp, fish or other fried items all had a light, crisp breading. Light in colour and thickness, the breading complements each item, rather than overpowering it. I didn’t try them, but my 15-yearold daughter, Maureen, loved the onion rings. Like anything else that’s lightly breaded at House of Dragon, the onion rings were nicely crisp and not greasy. Maureen said they were much better than what you get at fast food chains. If you’re in a breakfast mood, in addition to eggs, waffles (Simon makes them at the breakfast section himself, right in front of you), French toast, bacon and sausage, there are fresh blueberries, pineapple slices, orange wedges, strawberries, shrimp salad, shrimp dumpling and—best ever—pickled ginger. There’s also wasabi and sushi. The mixed salad at the breakfast section of the buffet didn’t scrimp on the fresh baby spinach. All the greens in the salad looked like they’d just been picked from the garden. The dessert selection is ample. There are several types of ice cream, with assorted toppings. You’ll find apple pie, black forest cake, honey twists, chocolate chip cookies and almond cookies. I talked to two girls who were at the dessert counter with their parents. Megan, 10, squealed with joy when she saw jellybeans included in the topping section at the ice cream bar. “Oooh, best topping ever,” she said. I asked how they liked the main courses. Her sister, Brigita, 13, answered. “I’m happy,” she said. “And Megan’s happy, and mom and dad are happy, so it’s gotta be a good place. Even the old

ladies at the table beside us are having fun.” I talked to some elderly folks (not the “old ladies at the next table”) as they were leaving. I asked what they thought. “Very lovely,” said one. “We’ll be coming back regularly.” “That is the best buffet you’ll find,” said her friend. House of Dragon is doing something right when they can please young ladies, old ladies, middle agers and families. The only complaint I had at the previous site was the lack of parking, especially in the summer along Gananoque’s main street. They’ve taken care of that

at their new facility. “This is a much better location,” said Leung. “There’s parking, especially for buses. It’s a good location with easy access from the 401. It’s easier for people to do pickup, and we have more space.” They have three dining areas now. In the warm weather, they’ll be opening an outdoor patio. I’ll be going back soon. Like next week. House of Dragon is located at 790 King Street East in Gananoque. Reservations are not required, but if you want to make sure you have a table, you can call 613-382-3636.

EMC Lifestyle - The Chinese dragon is a powerful and benevolent creature. Revered, the dragon controls the waters of the world and wards off evil spirits. It offers protection and brings good luck. It’s certainly worked well for House of Dragon in Gananoque. The restaurant has always been my favourite Chinese eatery in the region. Keeping things fresh is part of their philosophy. So is Chinese tradition, including the name. “The dragon in Chinese culture is a very special figure,” said Simon Leung, owner of House of Dragon, explaining why he chose the name. “It is a very traditional symbol in China, so everyone knows we are a Chinese restaurant.” House of Dragon has a new location, but the food is just as good as at their previous site along Gan’s main drag. It’s still on King Street, but further east. At most Chinese restaurants, trying to find the chicken in chicken balls is like trying to find the tiny prize inside a Cracker Jack package. Not so at House of Dragon, where the chicken balls are made on the premises and feature a good size chuck of white chicken inside a thinner breaded layer than you’re used to. Not greasy. “We try to make the batter so it’s not thick or heavy,” said Leung. Leung immigrated to Canada with his family in the 1970s. After working in Toronto restaurants for about ten years, in 1990, Simon Leung had an opportunity to open his own dining establishment along Gananoque’s King Street. Not long ago, they moved to their new location. “We have friendly staff,” said Leung. “And the food is fresh. It’s all homemade.”

City plans new fee model for public transit & permit parking Reporter

EMC News – Get ready for higher rates next year if you ride the bus or park in downtown Kingston. The city’s transportation department is proposing a new fee schedule to coincide with the launch of express Kingston Transit service and the pending loss of hundreds of downtown parking lot spaces to development. “When all of the blocks in the North Block area are developed, a total of 561 surface public parking spaces will be eliminated over the next several years,” according to a detailed report that’s been approved by the environment, infrastructure and transportation committee. The report now moves to city council for final approval. To offset the loss of parking spaces, and encourage more commuters to use Kingston Transit, staff recommend a new rate structure. Among the proposed changes; -boost all monthly parking permit fees in municipal lots to at least 10 percent higher than the cost of a regular monthly transit pass, -establish new downtown permit zones with varying rates to reflect low demand and prime parking spaces, -increase the price of a one-way adult cash bus fare by 25-cents, to $2.75, -introduce a weekday commuter pass for $62 a month (Monday-Friday unlimited), plus a four-day convention/event bus pass for $8, -no change for metered parking, event parking and residential street permit rates. City officials defend the move to impose higher monthly permit fees - an increase of $10 to $16 depending on the location – to encourage more transit ridership.

“The coordination of parking and transit strategies will assist in supporting and encouraging public transit use and can help reduce the demand for parking,” said the report by transportation director Sheila Kidd. To help cushion the financial impact of higher monthly permits for daily commuters, the city intends to phase-in the increases over two years, with half of the increase effective January 1, 2014 and the other half starting June 1, 2015. For example, a standard monthly permit rate of $68.79 will rise to $73.65 next year, and then $78.50 in 2015. City officials say the extra revenue collected from higher monthly permits will be funnelled into the bus operation over the next few years to help pay for express service. The faster service will launch this fall between the west end and downtown, followed by two other express routes serving the east and central areas of Kingston in 2015. Studies show the vast majority of commuters still rely on their cars to get to work downtown, with only four-percent of commuters taking transit. The city’s goal is to boost transit usage among commuters to 11 percent by 2026 by making the bus service more reliable and faster. Boosting permit fees is one strategy that will attract more “choice” riders to consider other forms of transportation such as Kingston Transit, the report concludes. There is no exact timeline for the loss of hundreds of surface parking spaces in the North Block area, which will depend on the pace of future development. However, the city is actively marketing the block across from K-Rock Centre - bounded by Ontario Street, Queen Street, King Street and The Tragically Hip Way – to private investors for commercial and residential development. This block has 170 parking spaces.

EMC Events – In it’s first year, the event saw more than 300 people attend, and over $9,000 raised for the United Way KFL&A. On April 6, the United Way Next Gen’s celebration of beer, whiskey and music will return to the Grand Theatre. “We’re really trying to listen to some of the feedback that we received last year to make this year’s even better,” said Erin Nolan, co-chair of the Next Gen cabinet and its events committee. As with last year’s inaugural event, this year’s Sociable will feature food and beverage vendors serving up samples of their wares and live entertainment by local musicians. “We’re aiming to have 11 beer vendors this year, so at least about 20 beers will be able to be sampled,” Nolan explained. In addition, she revealed that six whiskeys will be available for tasting. “Our whiskey tasting aspect of the event has proven to be quite popular. Last year we received the feedback from our attendees that they wanted to actually have more whiskeys at the event. We had three last year, and we’re doubling that this year; we’re going to have six whiskeys to be able to provide quite a diverse sampling.” Beer and whiskey connoisseurs will also be on hand to provide tours and information sessions throughout the event, and a selection of food will be on hand for attendees to pair with their beverages. While last year’s event featured a formal stage set up in the Baby Grand theatre, Nolan said some changes have been

made to this year’s entertainment. “We are going to have three or four smaller bands this year… this year we are making it a bit more intimate and a little more interactive with patrons, so the performances are going to be in the main space itself.” The entire event will utilize the lobby spaces of the theatre venue. The entire focus of the event is to celebrate regional beer, whiskey and music in the company of friends in a casual and fun atmosphere. It’s a concept that has resonated with Next Gen’s target demographic. “They like going out, they like to have an excuse to get together with friends and having a couple of drinks and try out different stuff,” Nolan said of those between the ages of 25 and 40. “The overwhelming response from people [last year] was that they had a great time and that they couldn’t wait to do it again this year.” Noland said organizers had high hopes for the event in its inaugural year and were pleased with its success. This year, they are hoping to see even more people attend the event, to the tune of 400. “The fact that we can do something that has so much interest in the community and that all the funds go toward a really worthwhile cause is great,” she said. Tickets for this year’s Sociable are $25 and can be purchased at the Grand Theatre box office, 218 Princess St.; by phone at 613-530-2050; or online at kingstongrand.ca. Each ticket includes five tasting tickets. Additional tasting tickets will be available for purchase during the event, which runs from 1-7 p.m. For addition information about this event or Next Gen, visit www.NextGenSociable.ca, or www.unitedwaykfla.ca/ nextgen/.

mary’s memories

Mary became talented at bringing herself to another place Mary Cook Columnist editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Lifestyle - At an early age, I developed an ability that I thought at the time, saved me from many a disappointment, worry and even heartache, and put me in another world. It took a lot of patience, and a great deal of practice, and much trial and error, but when I had perfected the exercise, it gave me great satisfaction and peace of mind. Through deep concentration, and forcing my mind away from an unpleasant situation, I was able to move my thoughts from the source of my anguish, and into a more pleasant place.  This time of year, many was the time I had to put into practice this talent I had developed. The ice was gone out of the Bonnechere and the current was fast, and the mud pout could be seen

from the shore.  The three brothers had been watching the spring breakup for weeks, and now the time had finally come.   I hated the very thought of the method used by the brothers to catch the fish.  Using spears, some of which were made from a pitchfork from the barn, they straddled an old tree that had fallen across the river at a narrow point, and stabbed them without mercy. When the mud pout became part of our supper, Mother, aware of my squeamish stomach, would put a slice of meat on my plate, or let me have scrambled eggs.  And as I sat at the supper table, I would put into place my talent. I would picture in my mind pieces of bologna, my very favourite treat, sitting on the platter of mud pout in front of me.  And even when my hateful brother Emerson would smack his lips for my benefit, I was able to change in my mind, the picture of the mud pout and turn it into bologna. This talent was put to good use at the Northcote School on more than one occasion too.  If bad Mar-

guirite was getting on my nerves, which happened at least once a day, I would picture her in my mind with homemade flour bag underwear under her skirt.  She made sure every girl at the Northcote School knew that her underpinnings came from Walker’s Store in Renfrew!  I got so good at this trick of imagination, that I could even see Pride of the Valley written across her seat! Emerson often said I was scared of my own shadow, and that wasn’t all that far from the truth. In the dark of night, in my bed, the sounds in the country terrified me.  The whippoorwills in the distance, making their eerie cries, the wolves howling as they skirted the barnyard looking for their next meal, and the old house cracking from the frost in the dead of winter were all sounds that kept sleep at bay.   Then I would call on this special talent I had developed over time. When these sounds surrounded me in my bed, I would force my mind’s eye to a street corner in Renfrew, to see the Salvation Army

band playing and singing their rousing hymns. I would be able to block out the frightening sounds around me, and sleep would come. This escape talent came to good use on Sundays too.  We sat in the front pew at church. Our minister, a giant of a man, would come swooping down the aisle and climb into the little cubicle raised above the floor, scanning the congregation before he said a word. I was sure he was singling me out with his eyes, and knew every sin I had committed since the Sunday before. His thundering voice shook the rafters, and his enormous surplus billowed out as he waved his arms, looking for all the world like a large black bird. That’s when I would look over his head to a spot on the blue painted wall. I would pretend I was an angel, and my mission in life, in my mind, was to help the starving Armenians.  These were the people Mother always said we took the food right out of their mouths if we didn’t eat everything on our plates.  I thought they lived in Arnprior.  So when I took on the role in

my mind’s eye of this little floating angel high in our church, I pictured myself doing good deeds. The fear of the minister vanished. Every Friday afternoon without fail, Miss Crosby read from a storybook she would bring to the Northcote School.  There was no such thing as a library at the one-room schoolhouse back in the ’30s.  I would sit enthralled...not so much with the story, but from the sound of Miss Crosby’s sweet voice as she read from the book.  She read with such inflection, you could picture yourself right inside the story.  And it was then I would again transport my mind to another place.  I would picture myself all grown up, far away from Northcote and the one-room schoolhouse.  In my mind’s eye I would be standing before great crowds of people, and I would be telling stories. The stories wouldn’t come from a book but would be of my own creation. Such were the unachievable dreams of a young child of the ’30s.  All made possible through the simple act of imagination.

High Rollers: OLG gets shortlist of casino operators for this region Continued from page 1

sand Islands) represents a valuable commercial opportunity that has not been fully exploited,” according to the pre-qualification document. The stakes are high for the chosen casino operator. The Kingston/Thousand Islands has a population base of 250,000, plus 90,000 in the Belleville area and another 135,000 in Peterborough. The provincial gambling agency says the preferred operator can choose to take over the existing Thousand Islands casino or find a new site in this zone, but the final selection must be agreed on by the operator, OLG and the host municipality. Beach says if Kingston is selected there will be a lengthy planning process since the city

doesn’t currently have any zoning that allows a commercial casino. “They would have to get appropriate zoning approvals. It can take, with public notice, a minimum of 6 to 8 months.” That could push the planning approval process into the summer of 2014, just before the start of a civic election campaign. Despite issues surrounding a ‘lame duck’ council, Beach says politicians would still have authority to make planning decisions prior to the next election in October 2014. The mayor isn’t convinced the OLG’s timelines are firm. “Their timelines are all over the board. My sense is with a new premier things got delayed.” If a provincial election is called within the next year, the OLG’s timetable could be delayed further until a new government is in place.

HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 – Are you ready for surprises, Aries? If not, loosen up a little bit because there is a little excitement in store for you. It will come when you least expect it. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 – You may need an extra dose of patience this week, Taurus. Some difficult tasks are ahead and you will be in charge of getting things back to normal. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 – Gemini, though many things can induce stress, the infectious sound of children’s laughter will quickly take you out of a slump. Take some time to enjoy the simpler things in life. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 –Cancer, some issues that require your attention arise at the office even though you may feel you have already devoted enough time to work responsibilities this week. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 –A memorable night is on the horizon, Leo. It may be Wednesday or Thursday, so plan to look your best on those days. Romance could be in the air as well. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 – Virgo, before reacting to something this week, take a few deep breaths before saying or doing anything. This way you can be sure you are not engaging in a knee-jerk reaction. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 –Libra, someone you can trust will be by your side this week when you need the most support. He or she also can help with sorting through financial concerns.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 – Sagittarius, make some concessions if it means keeping the peace around the house. Sometimes you have to simply sit back and let others be in the spotlight. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 – Capricorn, take a few moments to think about what you expect from a particular person and then develop a strategy that will bring you to that end. It sounds easy, but it will require effort. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 – Sometimes things last, but other times they fizzle away, Aquarius. You may not be able to predict the outcome of everything, but you can take steps to protect the things you want to save. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 – Others will quickly figure out that there is no one quite like you, Pisces. You are a great friend to be around.

Consider adding one of these animals to your family Wallace is a handsome sevenyear-old, male yellow Lab. He is a happy fellow who loves to meet new people. He seems to be housetrained and knows a few commands. Wallace needs to lose a few pounds, but he would love to go for daily walks with his new family so it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be an issue. He seems to get along with other dogs and would suit a first-time pet owner. We think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be most comfortable in a home with kids over six.

Jager is an eight-year-old, male tabby. He is very quiet and relaxed. Once you start petting him, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll watch you and then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hear his little motor start working. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loving an affectionate and is always looking to get the best head scratch from you. Drop by the shelter today and pay him a visit.

New mixed martial arts studio comes to Kingston Correspondent

Start Sum me r

EMC Sports - Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a sport that has gained a lot of popularity over the past few years. Community martial arts academies and studios have started to shift away from traditional karate and kung fu and have moved towards more functional areas of MMA, like Brazilian jujitsu. Chris Wellstood and Janet Smith, who currently own Martial Arts Planet in Kingston, have seen this shift and are hoping to embrace it further with the opening of Hayabusa Academy in the city’s west end this month. Wellstood and Smith are working with Hayabusa, a fight wear company that is based in Kingston and can often be seen as a sponsor for UFC fight nights. “Because of our current academy we do a lot of business with Hayabusa. We’ve developed a really great business relationship with them, so when they decided that they wanted to open their own facility in Kingston, they asked Janet and I if we would consider running it. After about a year of chatting with them and brainstorming, we decided we were going to go ahead with it, so here we are,” said Wellstood, who started out in martial arts about 12 years ago. Wellstood is looking forward to operating the new studio, but is also a little nervous. “It’s a little nerve racking at this point. The academy we run right

now will remain open and we’ll run both. We’re building the new academy from the ground up and currently only have about 10 memberships but we’re confident it will increase. I think it’s in a really great area and I think there is a lot of potential with the military base and a high school in the area. The demographics of people that watch MMA or UFC are a little younger so we are hoping it works out well.” The facility will teach classes for all ages and ranges of MMA. “We are going to keep a similar structure to what we have at our current academy. We focus and teach the three ranges of MMA, which are striking, clench and ground, and we teach different areas within those ranges. We also teach a fourth component which includes all three ranges and involves sparring,” explained Wellstood. Wellstood is really passionate about Brazilian jujitsu and looks to pass that passion on in his studio and with the opening of the new Hayabusa Academy as well. His favourite part of running the studios is constantly learning and teaching. “I am super passionate about Brazilian jujitsu. I love to train and learn and I like being a student. When I can learn from others in the facility it’s really great. When I get the opportunity to learn and train at the same time, I value that the most.” Wellstood is also confident that the new facility will be a great addition to Kingston. “It’s going to be a fantastic fa-

cility because it has Hayabusa be- mistakes over the years, so we have hind it and it also has us behind it. a better idea of what to expect.” We’ve had a lot of time to work out Hayabusa Academy opens its the kinks and have learned from our doors for classes on March 25 and

is located at 667 Innovation Dr. For more information, check out their website at www.hayabusa-academy. com.

Enchanting and fascinating people….and their world

Popular deejays return to Kingston EMC Entertainment - There are some new, yet familiar, voices soaring through the airwaves around Kingston. Big Kris and the Boomer are back in town. The stars aligned for their return to Kingston radio. Off-air, they’re really Kris Bawden and Wendy Bouwma. Both have been involved with local radio for several years. Both left town for bigger markets. Their absence coincided with a dark phase (my words, not theirs) for Rogers Radio (K-Rock group of stations). So many deejays disappeared, if felt like someone had opened a trap door. Even the format on Jack Thompson’s morning show on 102.7 was changed. If the powersthat-be listen to the people on the street, in the coffee shops and chatting at malls, they’d hear that this little city needs idiosyncratic shows like Jack’s oldies, not another tedious pop music clone. Yet another crucial mistake occurred when Rogers Radio started to pipe in a morning show from Toronto for their 105.7 channel. Word on the street was not good for the K-Rock group. The only consistencies were the Big G and Mathews country show, Lisa

Ray and the news voice of Tony Orr. But things have started to look up. Wendy and Kris are glad to be part of that. “I started at K-Rock in December of 06,” said Kris. “I met Wendy when I was waiting for a meeting with G [Glenn Williams] to interview for a position at the station. I was in the lobby and Wendy was walking through. We introduced ourselves. For lack of a better term, we became drinking buddies. I knew her future husband and we all just hit it off.” When Wendy and Will married, Kris was the deejay at their wedding. Last year, Wendy headed to Oshawa to host a morning show. Kris had already moved to Hamilton for his own morning slot. They’re both glad to be back. “There’s not a better place in the summer than Kingston,” said Wendy. “And I’m from Odessa, so it’s good to be home.” Looks likes she’s settling in for the long haul. She and her husband bought their first house last week. Kris hails from the Ottawa Valley and attended Algonquin College for his radio training.

He shares Wendy’s views on Kingston. “My parents used to take me on vacation and we’d go to Fort Henry,” said Kris. “I love the fort and its history. I love working here. Wherever I go, I always come back. I want to stay put for a while. I’m in a city I love. I get to work with people like Wendy. Then there’s Tony Orr, a local legend, who is just so humble about it.” Wendy butts in. “I grew up on local,” said Wendy. “I used to listen to Tony and he would tell me when Santa was coming to town. Now we’re like the three amigos.” Wendy attended KCVI for the Focus radio program and completed her training at Loyalist College. From there it was straight to K-Rock, where she started with the road crew. She also worked as receptionist, did promo work, the news and some on-air work before landing her own show, Wendy B on KIX 93.5. Their musical tastes are far broader than anyone might anticipate. People might be surprised to learn that Big Kris plays bagpipes and Wendy’s into musical theatre? “I really want to do musical theatre,” she said. “In Oshawa, I

landed a role in The Producers, but had to give it up to move back to Kingston. I’m pretty eclectic. I was raised on political folk music, so anything goes. My tastes are wide open. You might see me at a metal show, then a rap gig, then a rock show.” “Don’t let her kid you,” says Kris. “She still loves country, too.” “Of course,” says Wendy. “I play in a country band. And my husband plays in a metal band. I have respect for musicians of all genres.” “It’s the nature of our business that you’ll rarely find a radio person into only one type of music,” said Kris. “I’m into jazz, alternative, bagpipes and all sorts of weird stuff. But my number one genre has to be British indie.” I raised the issue of K-Rock’s dark period and they didn’t shy from the topic. “We’re excited to be part of a catalyst of change at the station,” said Kris. “The local management team is totally behind us wanting to be connected with the community.” “I hate pissers and moaners who talk about not being paid to do events in the community,” said Wendy. “I see a big part of the job as being in the community. If the hardest part of the job is going to a community event in the morning and at night going to a concert….” She stopped and shook her head. “How are you supposed to keep up your enthusiasm if you’re not connected with your community?” She explained that she enjoyed her morning show in Oshawa, but missed the people connection she’d had in Kingston. “In Oshawa, you’re broadcasting to this massive

group, the GTA” she said. “Kingston is a tight community and I missed that. My co-host on the morning show in Oshawa quit. I came home and said to my husband, ‘Can we go back home?’” “Same in Hamilton,” said Kris. “You lose the excitement when you don’t get out to meet people.” One of the radio pair’s Kingston stunts was the Polar Plunge on New Years Day. Kris jumped. Wendy didn’t. “He jumped in and I stood on the side and laughed,” said Wendy, not usually one to turn down a challenge. She’s done the plunge in the past. She admitted that she didn’t dive into the freezing water this year because she was sick and knew that she’d be off-air with strep throat if she’d jumped. Don’t rule out other challenges for her. “For me, anything that involves a stunt, I like to stretch myself to the limit,” she said. “I like to support any charity and community event I can. If someone says, ‘Hey Boomer, want to jump out of a

plane?’ I’m there.” She’s not kidding. She’s doing that next month. “You’re doing that on your own,” said Kris. “I’m not jumping out of a plane.” One of Kris’s sidelines is standup comedy and you’ll be able to see him in mid-April at the Time To Laugh Comedy Club. Wendy also scuba dives and loves demolition derbies. “I never thought I’d be a demo derby champion,” she said. “You definitely don’t want to tangle with her,” said Kris. “A few years ago, I was in one of the derby events with her and she clocked me. My head was spinning.” The Big Kris and Boomer show is irreverent. During their recent show about the history of Queen’s University, after hearing that the college opened with two professors and 13 students, Kris quipped, “With only two profs and 13 students, how did they manage to flip cars over during Homecoming?” As I said, irreverent. But very funny.

Turn out the lights and celebrate sustainability this weekend with Kingston Unplugged By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

EMC Events - For the sixth year in a row, Kingston Unplugged invites you to take a stand against climate change - and have some fun while doing so. At 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, the City of Kingston will darken the lights around City Hall and surrounding blocks for one hour in a symbolic gesture demanding governments of the world to take action against climate change. All residents are encouraged to take part in Earth Hour, a World Wildlife Fund event now observed in 152 countries, by turning the lights off in their homes – or better yet, by coming down to Springer Market Square to celebrate the event with Kingston Unplugged. Beginning at 6:30 p.m., vendors and sustainability displays will be set up in the square, giving members of the community the opportunity to learn about the environmentally-friendly options available to them

in Kingston. Organizations and businesses like Yellow Bike Action, Hearth Makers and Plovers Environmental Store will be in attendance. There will also free hot chocolate, live music, a silent auction and a number of activities for the whole family. “We wanted to start things a little earlier in Market Square to give families the opportunity to come down and learn how to take those sustainable practices and incorporate them into everyday life,” says event organizer Tricia Knowles. “We want people to come down and see the community coming together and really participating in collective action.” As in previous years, everyone in attendance will be given a beeswax candle to help light up the square when the lights go out at 8:30 p.m. At that time, the evening’s free live entertainment – featuring Rueben deGroot and His Whole Band and The Rhythm Haints – will also go off-the-grid, with amplification provided by wind and solar power. Knowles hopes Kingston Unplugged will

help promote a lasting spirit of environmentalism within the community. “Earth Hour itself is all about collective impact and going beyond the hour,” she says. “It’s not about just how much energy can we save in this one hour. It’s joining 152 countries in every continent across the globe and saying ‘hey, we’re with you’. Governments around the world need to take a stand. We’re still demanding action on climate change. This doesn’t stop.” This year’s Earth Hour is also significant for Knowles on a personal level, as it is the last time she will act as the co-ordinator for Kingston Unplugged. Knowles has been the driving force behind the event for the past six years. “It’s bittersweet,” she says. “I’ve taken this event from 60 people [in 2007] and now the last couple of years we’ve had just under 2,000 people coming and going throughout the evening in Market Square. It’s just so amazing to stand there surrounded by the beautiful glow of candles and hear this

amazing music which is all from solar and wind power [and think] ‘wow, I started this’.” Next year, Sustainable Kingston will take over the event, with Knowles staying on in a consultant role. “I’m happy to step back and let someone else take the reins from here on out, as long as it keeps going,” she says. “I think Sustainable Kingston is going to do an incredible job.” Indeed, Sustainable Kingston Acting Executive Director Joe Davis notes that Kingston Unplugged is a very appropriate event for the organization to host. “This event is key to the community involvement that is envisioned by Sustainable Kingston Plan,” he says. “Not only does it encourage us as citizens to use less electricity, but it is an event where like-minded people can get together to see the possibilities of sharing common views.” To learn more about Kingston Unplugged, please visit www.kingstonunplugged.com.

Celebrate “Eternal Spring” with the Kingston Symphony hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

EMC Events - It’s hard to imagine a nicer combination than beautiful music and springtime. The Kingston Symphony will celebrate the coming season Sunday afternoon with a special concert entitled Eternal Spring; the orchestra will be joined by two local choirs, The Kingston Choral Society and the Contabile Women’s Chorus, to perform an uplifting program including local composer Mark Sirett’s Beltane: A Branch of May, Morton Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna and Schubert’s Symphony No. 5. “This is a concert that’s really going to take us to a place of great beauty,” says music director Glen Fast. “It’s a chance to spend two hours outside of yourself in a very beautiful place.” The three pieces share a sublime, ethereal theme. Fast explains that Lux Aeterna in particular is very spiritual in nature. He notes that it is such a moving piece it could almost change the minds of even the most non-religious listeners. “I think people will have experienced a little corner of heaven when they hear this,” says Fast. “This will be [Lux Aeterna’s] premiere for Kingston, but it’s a very important piece from the late 20th century that’s been performed all

over the world. It’s really a big deal.” Sirett’s Beltane comprises five traditional folk songs that celebrate the halfway-to-solstice mark on the calendar. The piece was premiered by the Kingston Symphony, accompanied by the Contabile Children’s Chorus, in 2007. “Everybody loved it so much and was so excited about it that we decided that we’d do it again,” Fast says. He remarks, however, that the piece will sound quite different this time around: “The children’s choir probably has a more innocent sound or youthful sound, but a women’s chorus sounds very beautiful as well, and particularly Mark’s choir. He has a collection of wonderful singers.” The Symphony’s own Kingston Choral Society will also collaborate on the piece. “We have about 80 in our choir and they have 40 in their choir, so it’ll be 120 voices,” Fast says. “It’s a beautiful project.” The Schubert piece, he says, is also a pleasure for the symphony to perform: “It’s absolutely magical. It’s like you’re outside on a very dark night, looking up at the stars. Schubert’s music gives you that kind of feeling.” Fast explains that the experience of conducting a symphony changes quite a bit when choirs join in, as playing with a choir

means paying much greater attention to the balance and clarity of the sound. “The colours in the orchestra and the musical expression of the orchestra are beautifully matched with the choral parts and the meaning of the words,” Fast says. “So it really is three large dimensions. There’s the sound of the choir, the sound of the orchestra and the text of the pieces - and all three have to be really, really carefully balanced so that it all makes sense.” He remarks that the Symphony is more than up to the challenge of finding that balance. “When an orchestra is performing at its very best, everybody in the orchestra is aware of everybody else. So when we add a choir to the situation, it just adds that much more that everybody has to be aware of and that’s really the challenge. But if everybody is doing that then the balance of the sound and the quality of the sound automatically comes. That’s my job to make sure that that’s happening.” Fast adds that “to me, this is a concert of great subtly, but also of great beauty. Hopefully the audience joins us in the spirit of the music that we’re bringing to them from the stage.” Eternal Spring will be performed Sunday at the Grand Theatre at 2:30 p.m. For ticket information, please visit the Grand Theatre Box Office, or www.kingstonsymphony.on.ca.

St. Paul students raising funds for the inspirational Brett Babcock.

Our Lenten journey By Wyatt Bishop, Julia Cardemon, Maggie Garrison, Roth Gumboc, Charlotte Hickey, and Marino Lee

Heritage News - Brett Babcock was a student at St. Paul Catholic School. He was always a kind friendly student and has been a gymnast since elementary school. He was skilled at what he did, but one tragic day, Oct. 1, 2012, Brett was injured while training Double Mini Trampoline at the Phoenix Gymnastics Centre in Edmonton. Brett suffered a spinal cord injury and had surgery several days later. He now has regained significant upper body movement. Our group interviewed our French teacher, Mr. Steve Garrison, who taught Brett. “Brett was an ideal student. He was friendly, polite, and always did his best. He was a real pleasure to teach. Even at a young age he was dedicated to the trampoline.” he told us. “Brett took everything he did seriously. He was the type

who never gave up. I am not surprised that he was able to achieve so much as a trampoline athlete.” The accident happened halfway through a three-hour workout. At the time, Brett was practicing his routine in preparation for the Indo Pacific Championship in Sydney, Australia. Everyone, from the people of his hometown to his fans, has been supportive of him. People call Brett inspiring! Brett has a very supportive family; his mom, dad, and two sisters have been there for him ever since his accident. The St. Paul community also knows Brett very well. Some of the older students played with him at recess and some of the younger ones have known him through “reading buddies”. Some people from our class had his twin sister Bridget as a reading buddy as well. During lent our school chose to support Brett Babcock in his hard journey to recover from his fatal accident. We are try-

ing to help him by having dif- to you to make a change and like Brett who are suffering ward in their lives and inspiring ferent themed Fridays. For support Brett and other people from accidents but moving for- all of us to do the same. example: gum chewing day, PJ day, and pancake Tuesday. To participate in these activities everyone had to pay $1.00. What we are also going to do to support this cause is have a crazy hair day. The teachers are also making a gift basket to raffle off. your online source for FREE online coupons So far we have raised $147 for gum day, $91.50 for pajama day, and $202 for pancake Tuesday. That is a total of $440. To the people of St. Paul Catholic School, Brett is inspiring, brave, and encouraging. Despite his accident, he is still going strong and we all admire him for that. Mr. Paul Torres said, “He was a very nice boy and an excellent athlete. He is an inspiration.” There’s that word again. He is inspiring! We hope in the future Brett gains more body strength and continues to follow his dream. We will continue future projects to support Brett and we hope that we have reached out

After the wildly successful Face The Music tour that Marianas Trench brought across Canada this past fall, the Vancouver pop rockers are calling all Trenchers to join them, and special guests Down With Webster and Anami Vice, to in all new cities beginning in March. Ever After, Marianas’ latest album, has gone Platinum in Canada with over 100,000 units sold. It has spawned the hit singles “Fallout”, “Desperate Measures”, “Haven’t Had Enough”, and “Stutter”. Ever After is constructed around a story written by Marianas Trench singer and songwriter Josh Ramsay and then finessed into an accompanying booklet.

After the breakthrough of their 2009 album Masterpiece Theatre, and a lot of ensuing months on the road, Ramsay and bandmates Ian Casselman, Mike Ayley, and Matt Webb went into the studio and created a seamless hour-long symphony. Now, Canada’s latest arena headliners are taking their theatrical genius back onto the road for a series of concerts that their growing legion of fans will remember forever – the Face The Music tour featured a dizzying array of special effects, aerial acrobatics and spectacular visual elements alongside the band’s powerhouse music and signature vocal harmonies.

EMC Events - Liam McConnellRadford has found a new passion: the banjo. The Grade 11 student was part of a special event put on by Pathways to Education, Joe’s Musical Instrument Lending Library and local band The Gertrudes March 16 at the Boys and Girls Club. The initiative, called On Stage with The Gertrudes, gave 20 high school students the opportunity to learn instruments such as the guitar, electronics and the banjo from the band members, and later play in a concert with them. The experience, McConnell-Radford said, was incredible. “I didn’t really have any previous music abilities,” he said. “But I came in, tried the banjo and picked it up super quick. Everyone’s been so nice - it’s been a ton of fun... The chords are really simple. I learned a lot of plucking techniques, which was really cool.” McConnell-Radford remarked that he will most certainly continue on with the instrument. “I’m probably going to get myself a banjo now, and I’ll try to get lessons for the banjo because this has been so great,” he said. Gertrude Greg Tilson noted that the initiative was a very fitting opportunity for the band. “Since day one we’ve been about building community through the arts, so this is a perfect fit because it’s bringing together community organizations that we really value,” he said. “And also, our band is about 90 per cent teachers, so it’s about time we participated in more activities where we can use our teaching skills.” Tilson added that the Pathways cause – to reduce the high school drop-out rate in designated neighbourhoods – is also something that is important to him and the rest of the band. “I think we’ve all experienced instances where learning is enhanced and people’s access to education and ability to excel in school is improved when they engage in and share music with other people,” he said. “And so we’re big supporters of this being made available to the community, especially north end kids that don’t have as much access to the arts.” Pathways’ program facilitator for special mentoring, Catherine Lee, said that the organization’s programs are available to all youth who live in their catchment area, which includes the Inner Harbour and Rideau Heights neighbourhoods. Saturday’s workshops and concert were thus open to students with a wide range of musical backgrounds. “Some had never played the instrument before and some were really advanced on their instrument,” she said. “This was a chance for them to work on those skills, but also to bring The Gertrudes in as mentors for them. It also gives them the opportunity to perform [in front of an audience].” Lee explained the organization’s main goal is to successfully transfer youth to a number of different postsecondary “pathways”, so initiatives

like On Stage the Gertrudes go a long way to assist students in finding new interests and skills. “A lot of these students don’t normally get these opportunities,” she said. “All of the partners we’ve been working with to put this day together have really made this an accessible day. Maybe students don’t have an instrument, but we were able to provide that for them [through Joe’s MILL]. Maybe students don’t know where to go for mentorship, so we were able to provide that as well through The Gertrudes.” Lee said that these kinds of collaborations are very important to Pathways: “We can’t do everything by ourselves, so to have The Gertrudes and Joe’s MILL with us has made it so much richer than it could be on our own.”

Billy Talent at the K-Rock Centre, April 9. On September 19, 2012 Billy Talent’s fourth studio album, Dead Silence became the band’s third consecutive release to enter the Canadian album sales charts at No. 1 and fourth consecutive album to be certified gold. Dead Silence also made impressive debuts around the world. The album was recorded in Vancouver, Los Angeles and Toronto and is the band’s first self-produced record, with guitarist Ian D’Sa overseeing the recording from the producer’s chair. Dead Silence has already produced two hit singles, “Viking Death March,” and “Surprise Surprise”. Since finishing the recording of Dead Silence, Billy Talent have spent the past few months playing some of Europe’s biggest rock festivals and, more recently, headlining a major European tour that took them throughout the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Norway and Finland as well as two dates in Russia. Bill Talent’s performance at the K-Rock Centre gets underway at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $35 and $45. Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet presents The Sleeping Beauty. In this classic ballet, journey to an enchanted kingdom where Princess Aurora pricks her finger on a poisoned spindle. The Sleeping Beauty marries the soaring music of Tchaikovsky with the stunning choreography of

Marius Petipa, one of ballet’s most gifted creators. With lavish sets, opulent costumes and thrilling classical dance, this ballet will enchant audiences of all ages. Founded in 1939 by Gweneth Lloyd and Betty Farrally, Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet holds the double distinction of being Canada’s premier ballet company. This performance runs one night only, April 9 at 7:30 p.m. at the Grand Theatre. Tickets are $73.45 for adults and $58.76 for youth. Boyz II Men, April 10 at the Grand Theatre. Bringing back memories of your first boy/girl dance, this American R&B vocal group are best known for emotional ballads and a cappella harmonies like ‘I’ll Make Love to You’ and ‘End of The Road’ co-written and produced by Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds. “I’ll Make Love to You” broke “End of the Road’s” 13-week record at No. 1 by spending 14 weeks at the top of the chart (a feat equaled earlier that year by Whitney Houston’s cover of “I Will Always Love You.”). They are the most successful R&B group of all time, having sold more than 60 million albums worldwide. Tickets to this 7:30 p.m. show are $67.24.

Alan Doyle, Sean McCann and Bob Hallett have somehow managed to keep the dysfunctional-familybar-room-brawl-student-artproject-musical-pirate-crew known as Great Big Sea going for two decades. And more often than not, they have done it with more than a bit of flair. For the hundreds of thousands of fans who sang, danced and celebrated with the band, Great Big Sea has been a constant factor in their own lives. While musical fashions have come and gone, Great Big Sea has maintained an unswerving commitment to their original ideals — a belief that a marriage of their own creativity and the joyous folk music of their home in Newfoundland would be an unbeatable combination. Tickets for this show are $44.50, $59.50, and $85. Doors open at 7 p.m. Show gets underway at 8 p.m.

the Grand Theatre at 8 p.m. Tickets are $48.59 for adults, $45.20 for seniors, $22.60 for students and $11.30 for children. José Navas/ Compagnie Flak presents ‘S’. Simple, spare and elegant, the latest from this celebrated Quebeqois troupe explores the inherent grace of French composer Erik Satie. Eight dancers, clad in translucent white, are accompanied by Satie’s gentle but eccentric pieces, Gymnopédies and Gnossiennes. With a corps of strong, classically trained dancers, José Navas/Compagnie Flak aims to explore pure movement, moving away from a narrative structure. The result is a refreshing, uplifting piece that explores the idea of purity – in poetry, music and dance. This performance takes place April 16 at the Grand Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $44.07 for adults and $22.04 for youth.

Not So Amateur Amateurs help promote upcoming Marine Museum exhibit By Kristen Coughlar kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC Entertainment – In May of this year, a new exhibit will be opening at the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes: Hundredth Year Storm. This exhibit will highlight the Great Lakes Storm of 1913 and other “great” storms on the Great Lakes. In anticipation of this upcoming exhibit, the Not So Amateur Amateurs (NSAA) will tell the tale of another “great” storm this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the museum. “We’re doing The Tempest…Basically, it’s about a sorcerer who causes a storm that makes his enemies crash onto the island that he was sent to with his daughter,” explained Anais Anjilvel, a member of the NSAA Teenage Division and who plays the role of Ariel in the production. This sorcerer that Anjilvel refers to is Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, who has been stranded on an island with his daughter, Miranda, the result of being betrayed by his jealous brother, Antonio. Some 12 years after his brother set him adrift at sea, Prospero, now armed with magical powers, has his opportunity at vengeance, when his brother is on board a ship that is passing near the island. Prospero creates a tempest to lure his brother’s ship to the island and sets about a plot to conjure a relationship between his daughter and Ferdinand, the son of King Alonso of Naples, coconspirator in Prospero’s exile. Simultaneously, there is a plot against Prospero being formed between the play’s other characters, including two drunkards, Stephano and Trinculo, and Prospero’s slave Caliban; and Alonso’s brother Kingston Brewing Company manager Frank Turner shows off the Welly Boot Chuck tro- and advisor, Sebastian and Gonzalo, are scheming to kill the King. phy. “There’s a lot of humour in it because everyPhoto/Kelly Reid body thinks that everybody else has drowned and then they see one another,” Anjilvel said. Prospero

Brew Pub to host boot th chuck for 16 year By Kelly Reid Correspondent

EMC Events - Now that Spring is officially upon us, the Kingston Brewing Company will once again be hosting its annual Brewer’s Welly Boot Chuck this weekend in honour of the new season and to raise funds for a good cause. The Boot Chuck is a nod towards the farming tradition of casting off rubber boots in the Spring after a long winter of wear and tear – but this is no casual boot toss. This is the Olympics of welly-tossing – with an average throw being around 125 feet. The record is north of 150. Now in its 16th year, the KBC’s Welly Boot Chuck is more popular – and competitive – than ever. “There’s grudge matches,” says KBC veteran manager Frank Turner. “People come all the way from the States.” Turner, who has tossed a welly or two himself during his 17 years at the pub, says the event drums up a huge amount of team spirit and friendly rivalry. Prizes are given for best costume, longest individual throw (male and female) as well as best combined distance. The teams covet the Welly Boot Chuck trophy, which is shaped, appropriately enough, like a rubber boot and stands stalwartly atop the pub’s bar. Yet, according to Turner, the real prize is the bragging rights. “We have people come back year after 38 The Kingston EMC - Thursday, March 21, 2013

has used his magic to separate the survivors that were on board his brother’s ship. Anjilvel said it’s been a fun production to work on, and that she has enjoyed working with her fellow castmates. Emmie Pritchard, who plays the role of Trinculo, agreed. “This has been the most fun production I’ve ever done.” Alex Robertson, who plays a number of small parts in the production, joins Anjilvel and Pritchard in their excitement about performing the play at the museum beginning today. “It’s really different,” Robertson said of the setting. Pritchard added that it feels “really cool” to be a part of the promotion for the upcoming Hundredth Year Storm exhibit at the museum. In addition to learning about some of the “great” storms to have hit the Great Lakes, visitors will also learn how weather forecasting, safety and navigation technologies have changed over time. Anjilvel said she believes audiences will enjoy the NSAA performance of The Tempest, and hopefully be inspired to return to the museum come May to check out the storms exhibit. “If I had never seen this play before and I watched it I think I would be really, really interested in what it would be like to be a mariner and I would probably be really, really interested in the exhibit.” Performances of The Tempest will take place at 7 p.m. today and Friday, and 2 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets for The Tempest are $15 and available at Renaissance Music or at the door. For more information about the Not So Amateur Amateurs visit www.nsaatheatre.ca. Additional information about the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes, located at 55 Ontario St., can be found online at http://www. marmuseum.ca/.

year,” he says – and the names inscribed on the trophy show that some have continued success. The event will see anywhere from 10 to 20 teams of four register, with a cost of $25 per person. This covers entrance to the throwing competition, a beverage, a meal, and general ribbing and revelry in the pub afterwards. Teams must also have a minimum of two males or two females. Even if their boot doesn’t go far, participants can still be glad to know that they’re supporting a local charity. This year, all of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Hospice Kingston. Hospice Kingston provides its services free of charge to those in need of grief counseling, advocacy, palliative care, and much more. The Brewer’s Members of the Not So Amateur Amateurs Teenage Division, including Alex Robertson, Welly Boot Chuck has been donating its Emmie Pritchard and Anais Anjilvel, will perform The Tempest this Thursday, Friday and proceeds to Hospice Kingston for the past Saturday at the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes. Photo/Kristen Coughlar several years. As for the pub’s fundraising goal, Frank Turner optimistically says their goal is, “As much as we can!” If a player is unhappy with their first throw, they can make a donation to throw again; with the fierce competitive spirit this event brings out, KBC is sure to be happy with their fundraising results. The boot tossing will begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 23 behind the Tourist Bureau on Ontario Street. To register a team for the Welly Boot Toss, visit the Kingston Brewing Company at 34 Clarence St. to obtain an entry form.
