EMC News – The Buskers are coming back this weekend, and the bulldozers have been pushed to the sidelines. Downtown merchants are hoping the popular street acts are just the kick-start they need to boost sales and to show off their newly-rebuilt stretch of lower Princess Street. “It’s like having a child birth,” said Maria Cronk, EMC Events - Canada Day celebrations in Bath were well attended with large crowds lining the co-owner of Roundstone parade route last Monday afternoon. Above: In a long standing tradition, local children and and Fancy That clothing stores. firefighters engage in a water gun fight along the parade route. Photos/John Harman Cronk, like many other business owners, is pleased that Princess Street reopened to vehicle traffic and uninterrupted pedestrian flows just in time for Canada Day following four months of extensive construction activity. “Downtown is still the place to come,” beamed the veteran downtown store owner. The reopening of the main street, giving customers a clear path to storefronts for the first time since February, came just in time for a busy summer of activities that kicked off with the Red and White people parade July 1. That was followed by a Summer Sidewalk sale July 4-7 where merchants displayed their wares in front of stores. Lively and crowd-pleasing street performers with the downtown’s annual Buskers Rendezvous festival will take over Prin-

cess Street for the next four days, from July 11 to 14. The Princess Street Promenade will take place Saturday August 3, where the entire downtown section of Princess Street, between Division Street and Ontario Street, will be closed to all vehicle traffic for an entire day street festival of shopping, entertainment and demonstrations. Cronk admits the second installment of the so-called Big Dig was a little tougher on businesses, but it wasn’t all because of the dust, delays and detours. She says a cool, wet spring also put a damper on the mood of consumers. That mindset, coupled with the confined area of the construction zone, brought less patience for shoppers. Monica Brown, owner of The Rocking Horse, is also delighted to see the barricades come down revealing granite curbs, new sidewalks and planters. Although her business is located just outside the construction zone, she embraced the ‘no pain, no gain’ philosophy of road work. “I’m trying to stay on the positive side.” City officials trumpeted the benefits of ripping up the downtown’s main drag from storefront to storefront to replace a century-old stone box sewer, install new water lines, plus the streetscape improvements – a $7 million project that encom-

Controversial Johnson Street apartment complex is ‘desirable’: City planners YOUR AD There’s

By Bill Hutchins Reporter

EMC News – An Ottawa-based developer is proceeding with plans to demolish an entire block of single-family houses on Johnson Street to construct a 97-bedroom apartment complex. Despite strong objections from the neighbours, the city’s planning department supports the zoning changes needed to allow the housing conversion and increased density, concluding the development will be “appropriate, desirable and constitute good planning.” The development will encompass a block of houses from 637 to 655 Johnson Street, between Toronto and MacDonnell Streets. Golden Dragon Ho has completed a land assembly of six residential lots – one vacant lot and five, single-family brick houses built between 1900 and the 1950s. The houses would be demolished in order to construct three, lowrise apartments with a total of 28 units. Each rental unit would have up to four bedrooms for a total of 97 bedrooms, which are downsized by about 10 beds from when the project was originally unveiled in 2012. The three residential buildings, each three stories tall, are to be constructed in a U-shaped pattern to face onto Toronto, Johnson and

MacDonnell Streets. The project would also have 26 underground parking spaces, plus two on the surface. Since the concept was unveiled one year ago, neighbours have voiced opposition to the increased density fearing the apartments will become a magnet for students. Resident Susan Hawkins says cramming so many units onto a small city block will destroy the fabric of the neighbourhood. “I fear that this project will completely change the streetscape and dynamics of our neighbourhood by destabilizing our current friendly and engaging existence,” she wrote to the planning department. Resident Greg Pucher also voiced concerns about the conversion of low-rise houses into student rental apartments. “I have over the last ten years or so watched a tide of shifting demographics slowly creep upwards against traffic on Johnson Street in this area, with more and more houses being converted into ‘student rentals’ from traditional family dwellings.” However, city planners say the development supports urban intensification and is a good fit for the area due to its proximity to stores, transit and an arterial road. The physical design of the apartments will also incorporate

Kingston Buskers Rendezvous celebrates 25 years of fun By Kristen Coughlar kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC Events – “It’s hard to believe that what started out as a sort of enhancement to a sidewalk sale has grown into 25 years of one of the best known and well-attended buskers festivals in North America,” says Jan MacDonald as she discusses this year’s Kingston Buskers Rendezvous. This year’s festival kicks off today in the Limestone City; over the course of the next four days, local residents and visitors will have the chance to catch 25 different buskers acts, as they are performed on the streets of downtown Kingston. MacDonald, projects manager-marketing with Downtown Kingston!, says that each year the festival organizers strive to have a combination of returning favourites and fresh faces among the festival lineup. “This year we seem to have more new acts than we’ve had in a while,” she explains. That being said, loyal festival-goers will find a few familiar faces among this year’s lineup, including last year’s People’s Choice winner, Dream State Circus. Sophie and Jacob will once again entertain Kingston crowds with a mixture of acrobalance, juggling, comedy and balloon twistology. “They’ll be wonderful as always,” MacDonald says. In addition, Daniel Craig and Kimberly Olson-Wheeler, will be returning to the Limestone City. Both have appeared in past Kingston buskers festivals, Craig with The Dan Show and Olson-Wheeler with the Aerial An-

gels. Now married, the pair are bringing their show The Street Circus to Kingston audiences for the first time, performing over 100 tricks and stunts including the cyr wheel, hand to hand acrobatics, hula hoops, handstands, contortion, fire juggling and comedy.  Other returning favourites include the artist formerly known as Aidan Orange and his new show Billions Cobra; the folk music/hip-hop busking band The Four Roads; football freestyler and five Guinness World Record holder Victor Rubilar; the mechanical musical marvel Pierre St. Pierre; and more. Completely new to the Kingston Buskers Rendezvous is a selection of 13 acts. “For breakdance lovers, which I know there are many in Kingston, there is a group coming from California called The Flying Tortillas. They look like they are going to be loads of fun,” says MacDonald. A group of young performers, The Flying Tortillas are set to entertain audiences will a mix of acrobatics, stunts, tumbling, breakdancing, circus skills and comedy. “There’s a guy from Australia called The Amazing Mr. Fish; I think the kids will really enjoy him,” MacDonald adds. In the finale of his show, The Amazing Mr. Fish rides a 10-foot unicycle with one foot whilst balancing a fish on the other and then kicks the fish through the air in an attempt to land it in a fish bowl on top of his head. Yet another newcomer is Derek McAlister and his act The Twin Tango. A charming and funny love story is told in this show that incorporates clown,

Daniel and Kimberly Craig will be among performers at this year’s Kingston Buskers Rendezvous. mime, dance and a Chinese pole. “It’s sort of a wooing of a girlfriend kind of show; I think people will really get a kick out of it,” says MacDonald. If that weren’t enough, audiences can check out the card, coin and rope tricks of David Elliot; the hula hooping skills of Lisa Lottie in her show Bend it Like Barbie; or the beatboxing and livelooping talents of Georg Viktor Emmanuel.

A full list of all 2013 Kingston Buskers Rendezvous performers can be found online at http://www.kingstonbuskers.com. People can catch these buskers performing at locations throughout downtown Kingston Thursday through Sunday. With more than a quarter century under its belt, the Kingston Buskers Rendezvous has proven itself to be a popular summer pastime for local resi-

dents and a fun attraction for visitors. In fact, MacDonald notes that over the four days anywhere between 40,000 and 50,000 people will visit the festival. “It’s a very busy time but there is always a place to be found to see an act and enjoy some of things that happen in the park,” she says. “There is always something new and exciting to see.”

Council ready to tee off on the future of Belle Park Fairways Reporter

EMC News – The future of Belle Park Fairways could be decided as early as next week. The nine-hole public golf course has been operating under a cloud of uncertainty since a preliminary staff report last year suggested the money-losing venue may be closed. A final staff report on options to address the financial sustainability issue is expected to be presented to city council July 16, according to the Friends of Belle Park. “I’m looking forward to seeing it. We have some work to do there,” said Mayor Mark Gerretsen in advance of the report and recommendations. The mayor points to recent upgrades at Lake Ontario Park, which reopened with a $4 million facelift, as an exam-

ple of what could be done to reinvent Belle Park on Montreal Street if council agrees to it. The golf course does not take up the park’s entire 44 hectares, but its mounting tax subsidy has been red-flagged in the city’s quest to find budget savings. It has operated in a growing deficit position since 2006 and currently requires an annual tax subsidy of about $200,000. City officials say the golf course is not a core recreational service and may no longer be financially sustainable. They’ve been looking at whether the city should get out of the golfing game or develop a new business model to reduce its tax subsidy. Friends of Belle Park, a local citizens group, has been working with the city on strategies to save the 38 year old golf course, located atop a former municipal landfill, and find new ways to make it

profitable. Group spokesperson Jacques Menard believes Belle Park Fairways could attract more daily users and seasonal memberships if the city were to make a significant capital investment to spruce up the grounds. Menard says needed municipal improvements to the golf operation - such as resurfacing the tee decks and fairways and relocating greens - have been neglected for too long. The initial 2012 staff report said Belle Park Fairways needs at least one million dollars in capital improvements. It also provided four options to deal with the revenue and membership decline of the only city-run golf course: keep status quo tax-subsidized golfing at Belle Park, outsource golfing to the private sector, terminate golfing and transform the entire area into a passive park, or build a solar farm and passive park.

Council rejected the solar farm option earlier this year. “Do we want to be remembered as the people who turned over the waterfront for a solar farm?” asked Coun. Bill Glover during the April 23 debate that resulted in a 10-3 vote to reject moneymaking solar panels in the park. That vote did not save the golf course. It just removed one of the options. Friends of Belle Park is gratified the “misconceived” idea of planting an industrial solar farm on park land is off the table. Aside from the ongoing financial pressures of subsidizing a golf course, city councillors must also consider the community benefits of keeping it open. Supporters of Belle Park Fairways say it offers affordable and accessible recreational space in a city that tries to promote healthy, active living among

those with modest means. Menard agrees the current green fees - with rates that are 15 to 59 percent lower than privately-run golf courses in the Kingston area - must change as part of a revamped business model. One option being discussed is for a not-for-profit citizens’ board to take over the golfing operation with higher fees, new membership packages, enhanced marketing and a large capital investment from the city to make the course more self-sufficient. “We are committed to bringing sustainability back to Belle Park, not compete with the private sector,” Menard explained at a recent council meeting. He says every mature city has a municipal golf course, and Kingston’s is worth saving.

Summer Company lawn care business goes “green” over 550 kilometres,” MacGillis explains. “I kind of want to change the way things are done.” For instance, when mowing, Mother Earth Enterprises uses a push reel mower, specifically the Fiskars Reel Mower, instead of gas-powered equipment. “It gives a much cleaner cut,” says the young entrepreneur, noting that instead of a rotary blade, which makes a hacking motion, the push reel mower snips like scissors. “I’ve had very positive feedback,” MacGillis says. “Lawns are greener.” Another benefit to traditional push mowers, MacGillis goes on, is that they do not contribute to noise pollution. “If communities start adopting this technique, it’s quiet, too,” he explains. The average gas-powered mower, for instance, emits 90 dB of noise, which the World Health Organization classifies as “extremely loud.” As MacGillis says, “Both your neighbours and your ears will thank you when your grass is cut using our non-gas powered equipment.”

By Kelly Reid Correspondent

EMC Business - “For my entire life, I’ve always been focused on the environment,” says Sean MacGillis. “It’s a passion of mine.” Now, MacGillis is turning that passion into a business with a little help from 2013 Summer Company program. Summer Company gives students ages 15-29 the opportunity to create and launch a summer business venture. Successful applicants received up to $1,500 in start-up funding, hands-on business coaching, training, and mentoring. The program, which originated in 2001, is facilitated here locally by the KEDCO Entrepreneurship Centre. MacGillis’ business, Mother Earth Enterprises, provides emissions-free lawn care and landscaping. With the help of Summer Company program, MacGillis hopes to modernize lawn care by returning to traditional methods. “Operating your average piece of lawn equipment can generate an equal amount of emissions as driving a car

In addition to mowing, Mother Earth Enterprises other environmentallyfriendly landscaping services include edging, sweeping, and whipper snipping, as well as weeding, mulching, transplanting, fertilizing and seeding. MacGillis currently manages 14 residential properties in the Kingston and Rockport areas. He keeps himself open to the possibility of doing commercial or municipal landscaping in the future. “It depends on the success of the

business,” he says. This busy 21-year-old will be returning to school this fall to complete an engineering degree, but plans to balance his company and his studies. “I’m no stranger to hard work,” he says. MacGillis’ prices range depending on the property – “Every lawn is different,” he says – but he offers free consultation in advance. “I’m happy to go over the lawn with

them and any issues that they have,” he says. As the benefits of push reels start to become more known, MacGillis hopes that emissions-free lawn care will start to become the preferred method. As he says, “You can still be extremely profitable while taking care of the environment.” For more information or to book a consultation, visit Mother Earth Enterprises at greenkingston.ca.

By Mark Haskins

Entertainment - I really enjoyed Die Hard 6… I mean White House Down. Okay so White House Down is basically Die Hard with a bit of Die Hard 3 thrown in, but Die Hard is one of my favourite movies, and Roland Emmerich did it well so I’m all right with it. The premise is simple. A group of highly trained mercenaries, pretending to be terrorists, infiltrate the White House and orchestrate a violent take over. On the surface it looks like

MOVIE: White House Down STARRING: Channing Tatum, Jamie Fox, Joey King, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and James Wood DIRECTOR: Roland Emmerich RATING: PG

an elaborate robbery, but in truth there’s something much more sinister happening. John Cale (Channing Tatum) is taking the tour with his daughter Emily (Joey King) when the White House gets attacked. John’s ex-military working as a guard for the Speaker of the House, and has aspirations of joining the secret service. So when John and Emily get separated he doesn’t hesitate to start kicking butt to find her. Meanwhile President Sawyer (Jamie Fox) is being hurried to a secure location within the White House when he’s betrayed by one of his own. The head of his security detail, Martin Walker (James Wood), is the one behind the entire attack. Luckily for Sawyer, John happens upon them just in time. John has to find a way to get the President out of the White House, rescue the hostages, and save his daughter. He has some help from the outside by way of agent Finnerty (Maggie Gyllenhaal), but for the most part it’s just John and President Sawyer against a mad man and his army of mercenaries. I don’t know if Emmerich did it on purpose or if he claims it’s just a coincidence, but the similarities between White House Down and Die Hard are remarkable to say the least. I suppose it doesn’t really matter because Emmerich pulls it off. White House Down is a good summer action film. Likeable heroes, despicable villains, a larger-than-life scenario, a few plot twists, a few more oneliners, and a whole lot of action make it well worth seeing.

In Our Opinion

Wanted: an extra five hours a day Hollie Pratt-Campbell Reporter

@hollieprattcamp

EMC Editorial - In January, I wrote a column expressing how I was excited to return to work after maternity leave, but also nervous about starting life as a working mom and learning to juggle motherhood with my full-time reporting job. Six months later, I can honestly say that I never knew life could be as hectic as it has been since my return, and particularly since the end of Steve’s parental leave in April. The upside is that my days are so busy I don’t have a lot of time to sit around and get upset about how crazy they are. The downside is that prioritizing and making difficult compromises are now daily realities. One of the most difficult areas of compromise has been choosing between optimal health and optimal home cleanliness. Without having any formal discussions on the matter, our household chose health, and while I’m glad we did, some days our home drives me up the wall. Cooking healthy meals, for instance, takes time. It’s also messy, as it usually involves chopping, peeling, and de-stemming various kinds of

vegetables, and dirtying more than one pan. (Steve, who does most of the cooking, is unenthusiastic about the whole “clean as you go” philosophy. While I have pointed out its benefits on several occasions, he doesn’t seem to believe me and I don’t want to push it because let’s face it, I am lucky to have a husband who cooks.) What this all means is that by the time we sit down to eat dinner, the kitchen looks like a hurricane went through. Further time is thus required to get the kitchen to a somewhat acceptable level of cleanliness. In the remaining hour or so before Summer goes to bed, one of us will usually engage in some sort of exercise - running, yoga, baseball - while the other spends some quality time with our daughter, baths her, reads to her and puts her down. Then one of us will walk the dog while the other works on cleaning the kitchen some more. Finally, we collapse onto the couch for half an hour of TV watching before our own bedtime, which is embarrassingly soon after Summer’s. What’s missing from this picture? Basic tasks like vacuuming and laundry, which used to get done at least twice a week. Now, these chores have been relegated to weekends, which is not good because they really should be done at an even greater frequency than they were pre-Summer. The amount of dirty laundry that has usually piled up by Friday could (and

sometimes nearly does) fill the entire floor of our laundry room. Sometimes, it does feel a bit selfish or irresponsible to go off on my run or to yoga when I know the hamper is overflowing with clothes to be washed, probably because running and yoga are activities I genuinely enjoy doing. But isn’t neglecting your health just as bad if not worse than neglecting household clutter? Or maybe I just need more time to work on this whole balancing act. If it’s this crazy now, imagine how it will be in a few years, when Summer needs to be chauffeured to various after school activities. Does this mean that health and a tidy home – among a number of other things I don’t have room to get into here– will all eventually need to be sacrificed? I don’t think so, because I have seen a number of examples of parents with young children who manage keep pristine homes, cook healthy meals, and be fully involved moms and dads despite the fact that they both work full time. I would love to hear some tips from some of the more experienced working parents out there. From where I stand, it doesn’t seem like there are enough hours in the day to get everything done, but perhaps it doesn’t have to be this way. Any advice on how to bend time? Or at least manage it better?

Heat dangers and pets EMC Editorial – Did you know that each year many pets die as a result of being left in parked cars during hot weather? With the recent hot and humid temperatures the region has been experiencing, we think it timely to remind residents in the KFL&A area of the dangers that summertime heat can pose to our pets. In a Facebook post just weeks ago, the Kingston Humane Society informed the public that it had responded to a call involving a dog that had been left in a dark blue truck with the windows barely parted for a period of 40 minutes. “We arrived in time, but the next dog might not be so lucky,” a section of the post read. According to the Ontario SPCA, “temperatures in a parked car, even with the windows open and in the shade, can rapidly reach very dangerous levels, even on a relatively mild summer day.” Further to that, the organization notes that a dog’s normal temperature is about 39 degrees Celsius, and due to a limited ability to sweat, even a short time in a hot environment, i.e. a vehicle, can be life threatening. In fact, a dog can only withstand a body temperature of 41 degrees Celsius for a short time before suffering irreparable brain damage or death. It’s for this reason, that pet owners are advised to leave their animals at home where it is cool. It should also be noted that pets can also be in danger when left outdoors on hot summer days. The Ontario SPCA notes that dogs should only be left outside for short periods, should have a cool, sheltered place out of the sun, and be provided with ample water. Particular dogs, the organization notes, including northern breeds and short-muzzled dogs, can experience more difficulties in the heat, and that overweight dogs, puppies under six months of age, dogs with medical conditions and dogs on certain medications can also be susceptible to heat exposure. If you find and suspect a pet may be suffering from heat exhaustion, and the owner cannot be located, the Ontario SPCA advises calling a local branch of the organization, the humane society, or the police.

Pet Project: City moves closer to banning ‘unsourced’ dog, cat sales at pet stores By Bill Hutchins Reporter

EMC News – Kingston’s pet stores could soon be on a tighter leash. The city is moving ahead with a new bylaw to ban the sale of unsourced cats, dogs and rabbits in commercial pet stores. It would make Kingston only the third Ontario city to enact such a ban. A new staff report to the arts, recreation and community policies committee recommends pet stores be given three months from the date the bylaw is passed to “deplete their inventory of dogs, cats and rabbits that they have for sale.” The bylaw would also prevent pet owners from turning in their unwanted animals to pet stores for resale. Coun. Lisa Osanic says this closes a “loophole” that could allow pet store employees posing as residents to buy unsourced animals and then covertly donate them to their own stores – a loophole Toronto is now trying to close in its own pet sale ban. Local councillors first proposed the retail restrictions last February in order to reduce the city’s growing number of unwanted and stray animals, and to curb the sale of animals from illegal breeders and puppy mills. A draft bylaw went to the committee in late June before it moves on to council for final approval.

“Pet store owners will not be permitted to purchase or accept free any of these animals after the date that the bylaw comes into effect,” according to the proposed bylaw. Supporters of the ban say it’s not as drastic as some may think. They point out pet stores can still sell cats, dogs and rabbits as long as they come spayed or neutered from animal shelters and rescue groups. The new rules could be approved by council later this summer, which means pet store owners would likely have until the end of the year to come up with a new business plan. Cliff and Sarah Perry, owners of The Pet Store in the Cataraqui Town Centre, have collected over 1,500 signatures from their customers expressing concern with the bylaw. They say if stores like theirs can’t “rehome” unplanned and unwanted litters then it will lead to an influx of unwanted pets at the Kingston Humane Society. They wrote a letter to the mayor April 30 urging the bylaw’s implementation be delayed for one year to give them more time to develop a new business plan. “Our proposal would be it starts in June 2014, we don’t think this is too much to ask as this change made quickly would end our business.” The Pet Store owners have said the proposed pet sale restrictions will impact about 40 percent of their rev-

enues. Instead, city officials are recommending a three-month grace period for local pet stores to phase-out the sale of unsourced dogs, cats and rabbits. Critics believe the bylaw will drive

more pet owners and buyers to popular web sites, like Kijiji, which are more difficult to monitor and enforce, or to stores in neighbouring municipalities. Others say Kingston should not be infringing on the rights of retailers to sell a legal product.

However, groups like Kingston Animal Rescue says the city’s actions are progressive. The proposed bylaw does not prohibit the existing sale of other pets such as reptiles, spiders, fish and birds.

More health care service on Wolfe Island … Less ferry chaos? By Margaret Knott Correspondent

people can find a comfort level, to have simple things done.. Much like what you are trying to do here so that people do not have to take the ferry off the island for services that could be offered under the watchful eye of the paramedic, We are often called when there is no one else to call, often the first person people see, Some clinics have identified diabetics who didn’t know,’ he said. Charbonneau noted the program was not eligible for land ambulance grants but is fully county supported at this time “as a proof of concept pilot project, a first foray into health care as a Paramedic Service.” (The possibility of Paramedic led clinics was identified by the WI Clinic Board as a logical initiative for the isolated island community.) The clinics are free of charge and operate on a walk-in basis. First visits can last up to 25 minutes, less at subsequent checkups. First time clients receive a Health Booklet to record personal information, and list medications. Vital R0012200190

R0032202107

EMC news-Wolfe is gearing up for the third in a series of relatively new and exciting Paramedicine Wellness Clinics at the WI Community Medical Clinic . The Paramedicine Clinics are a Frontenac County Paramedic Services a pilot program . The program is in support of islanders efforts to stay in their homes longer, reduce demands on emergency services and hospitals and maybe even reduce health care costs. The service includes Paramedics taking and recording vital signs as well as answering client questions within their scope of practice, and working with other community health members. The Paramedicine Clinic’s are held on the island every 6 weeks, in conjunction with the

regular island foot care clinics initiated by the Seniors Association. The next date is July 22nd 10:30 am-1;30 pm Paul Charbonneau, Director of Frontenac Paramedic Services announced Wolfe Island as the location for Frontenac County’s first Paramedicine Wellness Clinic at a WI Community Medical Clinic AGM held in May. . “The goal of Paramedicine Wellness Cinics is to reduce 911 calls . That’s what it is all about,” Charbonneau said at the time. “What can we do as part of the health care system to prevent more emergency calls? “Paramedicine can be visiting seniors in their homes, or offer heart rehabilitation programs,” he said citing a program held at a local school gym in Renfrew, (instead of having to travel to Ottawa). “Or a wellness clinic as a place where

signs (BP,pulse, respiration, oxygen saturation, temperature, blood glucose and body weight) are taken and recorded by the paramedic. The booklet is kept by the client between visits and can be used as a reference at physician appointments.. It should be noted that if a client experiences a medical emergency during a visit, or has a serious health issue that requires immediate attention, paramedics will deal with that situation accordingly - performing on-site care and transfer to the hospital as required. The first Paramedicine Clinics was well attended and it is anticipated islanders will use the service on a regular basis to avoid a trip on the ferry. Remaining 2013 Paramedicine Clinic dates including July 22nd are August 26, October 7, and November 8. All Wolfe Island residents are welcome. As a member of the clinic board so aptly put it: “Use it or Lose it…” Around Town :In spite of the weather the island is very busy.

it would do,” says Urbanksi. The book also cracked the top 10 in the broader business category. Out of all the free e-books of any subject matter, it landed at number 360. His other available books include Business Success Secrets, Principles, Formulas & Ethos as well as Primitive Business Tools for Success. Urbanski, who is a small business owner himself, says that he wrote his series of marketing guides as a way of sorting through his own experiences. “I wanted to gain clarity on the process,” he says. “I’ve been living off these principles for most of my life.” Throughout his youth, he showed an entrepreneurial spirit through a variety of odd jobs such as lawn care and newspaper routes. Through extensive worldwide travel, he started to find his own passions. He recently returned from living in Japan for three years and now owns the martial arts school Martial Arts Axis. According to Urbanski, he twice doubled the size of his business by following models that he learned abroad and through seminars. Now, Urbanski looks forward to sharing those techniques with Kingston residents. “It’s a lonely place to be a business owner,” he says, explaining that entrepreneurs are isolated from mentorship in many ways. “But small business drives the economy.” Urbanski fears that the closures of places like S&R, Empire Theatres, and the downtown Indigo location signal a decline in the local economy. “I feel like Kingston really needs help,” he says. He believes that the city could use more support measures for entrepreneurs. He looks forward to collaborating with groups such as KEDCO in order to bolster small business in this area.

Daryl Urbanski, business coach and writer of Amazon bestseller. In addition to his three books that are available through Amazon, Urbanski now also offers business coaching through his website, bestbusinesscoach.ca. Urbanski is very confident in his knowledge and hopes that he can help other small business find success. “If they don’t have a better business after implementing these techniques, I’ll give them their money back,” he states. Urbanski also plans to launch a fourth book in one month’s time. It will be called Tribal Marketing: How to Double your Business in 12 Months or Less. “It worked for me, it worked for my friends,” says Urbanski.

Princess Street’s Big Dig complete – Midtown dig is next in 2014 Continued from page 1

passed two blocks of Princess Street, between King and Bagot Streets. Construction work on the cross streets of King, Wellington and Bagot will continue for a few more months. “They get benefits once the services come in,” said Coun. Jeff Scott, noting problems with basement flooding during heavy rainfalls should be much less frequent with the installation of separated storm and sanitary sewers. Mayor Mark Gerretsen says he sympathizes with businesses that lost sales during the Big Dig but says the work was unavoidable. “We have an obligation to provide these services to them and we have to do what we have to do to fix them up. Nobody likes it. I don’t like it.”

City council has yet to deal with a 50-name business petition that calls for a two-year tax deferral for business owners affected by the construction. Councillors say it’s difficult to determine who should get tax relief, and they are afraid that giving it to one group could open the floodgates to similar treatment in other construction zones around the city. The downtown’s Big Dig work will take a break next year while the Princess Street improvements will instead focus on the midtown area. City officials are planning to reconstruct Princess Street, between Bath Road and MacDonnell Street. The $8.4 million project is being fast-tracked in order to expand water and sewer capacity to promote the renewal and intensification of the Williamsville Main Street corridor.

How-to pack a car safely This is the prime season for road trips, which many people feel are the most affordable vacation option available. They also provide unsurpassed views of the countryside and the ability to slow down and customize the trip as desired. Packing the car for a road trip can be complicated. Although the goal may be to cram as much as possible into the car and get on the road quickly, part of the safety plan for this year’s adventure should include packing properly to avoid injury. Americans and Canadians combined drive trillions of miles in any given year. Although it is difficult to make a direct comparison between how many people choose driving as opposed to flying, when comparing data from the Federal Highway Ad-

ministration and the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, for every mile Americans flew they drove about six more in 2011. With so many miles clocked on the road, it is essential to make the experience as safe as possible -- and that means properly securing belongings in a vehicle before getting on the road. In 2009, a laptop computer became a projectile that killed its owner. Heather Storey of Surrey, British Columbia, was driving to work when her vehicle was hit by a tow truck. Her laptop was propelled at such a force that it caused a deadly injury to her head. Unsecured or improperly packed items in a car or truck have the potential to cause serious injury when on the road or, at the very least, may

obscure visibility when driving, says Consumer Reports. The organization and others offer drivers a series of tips that can help make travel safer. * Adjust tire pressure prior to travel. Consult the owners manual to determine the proper tire pressure when the vehicle is carrying a full load. This will not only help alleviate unnecessary wear and tear on the tires, but also can help to prevent a tire blow-out. * Know the car’s limits. It also is important to stay below the maximum permitted weight or maximum load capacity for the car or truck. Consumer Reports says that the capacity for small SUVs can span from 825 pounds to 1,155 pounds. Midsize SUVs may carry anywhere from 900 pounds to 1,405 pounds. Minivan capacities can vary significantly as well. The load capacity is specified in the

owner’s manual. * Store the heaviest items at the lowest, most central part of the vehicle. This helps reduce effects on handling that can lead to problems with steering or braking. Drivers should keep the overall center of gravity lower to help reduce the risk of rollover. * Make sure everything is secured in the car or truck. Use crates or boxes to house smaller items. Use straps or rope to tie down anything loaded in the back of a truck or SUV to the vehicle’s cargo anchors. Load as much as you can into a car’s trunk to avoid having loose items rolling around inside the passenger area. * Keep a clear view of mirrors and the rear of the vehicle. Do not pack any items higher than the level of the rear seats. Not only can these items fly forward in the event of sharp braking or a crash, but they also may obscure the driver’s view of the road.

* Invest in a roof rack or cargo box. Only place light items on the roof of the car so you can free up interior space. Secure roof items tightly, as they will be caught by the updraft while driving and you do not want to send them airborne and onto the roadway. Also, if you do use the roof for storage, be aware of how much taller the items will make your vehicle so you know if you can safely drive beneath underpasses. * Make sure passengers can be seated safely. Packing a car doesn’t always mean being able to fit suitcases and belongings. It also means ensuring passengers can ride safely. Do not seat more passengers than can be restrained by the seat belts in the car. If there is not enough room, it is safer in the long run to take two cars. Pack a vehicle safely and make sure it is maintained before heading out on your first road trip of the season.

Things to consider when choosing a vehicle for something you’re eventually going to own. In addition, buying or financing gives consumers more flexibility, as they’re allowed to sell the car whenever they choose without penalty, something that is not allowed under many lease agreements. In addition, there are no mileage restrictions when buying or financing, while such restrictions are typical when leasing a vehicle. * Insurance: Some vehicles are more expensive to insure than others. Insurance companies base insurance rates on a host of factors, but those vehicles that have the strongest safety records and are less likely to be stolen tend to cost less to insure. How much you will pay to insure a vehicle also depends on how you will be paying for it. Lenders typically require borrowers who are financing or leasing a vehicle to fully insure the car, which costs considerably more than basic insurance coverage that drivers who buy their vehicles outright tend to choose. Weigh the costs of insuring different makes or models before making your purchase. Buying a new vehicle requires a considerable financial investment, so buyers should weigh a host of factors before driving their next vehicle off the lot.

Buying a new automobile, be it a brand new car or a preowned vehicle, is a considerable investment. Some buyers agonize over which automobile to buy, while others tend to stick with the same make or model for years on end. Regardless of which group buyers fall into, there are some things all consumers should consider before buying their next vehicle. * Driver needs: A large sport utility vehicle might be your dream vehicle, but it might not be the most practical car to start parking in your garage. When examining your vehicle needs, ask yourself what you use the car for. Is it just a vessel to get you from point A to point B? Do you routinely use your vehicle to take your children and their teammates to and from soccer practice? Is your commute long or short? Each of these things should factor into your decision. For example, if your commute to work is especially long, then perhaps a smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicle is the most practical choice. However, if you routinely carpool or use your car to get the kids to and fro, then a larger vehicle with a more roomy interior might be the best bet regardless of its fuel efficiency. * Budget: Your budget is perhaps the biggest thing to consider when shopping for a new vehicle. Many buyers intend to finance or lease a vehicle, and sites such as Edmunds.com can help prospective buyers estimate what their monthly car payment will be. The larger the down payment you’re able to make, the less your monthly payment will be. In addition, those who intend to finance their vehicle purchases should consider the length of their finance agreement. You might be able to finance a vehicle purchase in as little as 12 months or as long as 72 months. The longer your agreement, the less you will be paying each month. However, you will pay more interest the longer your agreement is and your payment is likely to be the same in the 72nd month, when the vehicle has significantly depreciated in value, as it was in the first month when the vehicle’s value was at its peak. * Lease or buy: The decision to lease or buy is something to consider. Leasing allows drivers to drive a brand new car for far less money than if they were to purchase the vehicle outright, and the terms of a lease are typically far shorter than those when buyers are financing, which allows drivers to get a new vehicle more often. Buying or financing a vehicle has its advantages as well, most notably that you will be making payments

Mysteries locked in stone

R0012202858_0711

EMC Lifestyle - They go by names like Cloghboola Beg, Carrigagulla, Gortanimil, Reanascreena, Derreentaggart and Ardgroom. Through the veil of time, stone circles and burial dolmens remain a mystery. There are stone circles found throughout Europe. Such locations as Stonehenge are famous. But there hundreds of other magnificent sites. The greatest concentration of circles in Europe is in the Cork/ Kerry region in Ireland’s Southwest, where you can find more than 100. Likewise, burial tombs, which are as old, if not older than the circles, are scattered across the Irish landscape. Until a time machine is created, we rely on theory and speculation to understand the sites. We can conclude that rituals or ceremonies were conducted at these locations. These may have been spiritual in nature. There may also have been civil ceremonies. Or both. Should things like the stones locations be kept secret? Does that enhance their mystery or endanger them? Will the invasion by countless visitors destroy the sites? Not

likely. Many locations require considerable effort to reach and the average tourist won’t be trekking to visit them. Tour buses can’t get close to most of the locations. The circles and burial sites are found in a mystical land of beauty. They exist in solitude with no nearby tourist shop selling foreignmade trinkets. Ireland of the past and present has paid great respect to the Otherworld. The circles and dolmens are in abandoned or unknown areas, some in the middle of a farm field, behind a church or miles from nowhere. The traditional dwellers of old Ireland believe in a fairy world. Land is full of life and intersects with the spiritual world. A planned runway at Galway Airport was moved during construction because of an ancient fairy mound. Roads have been re-routed. Is this the thinking of the superstitious or a respect for the spirit of the land? In Eternal Echoes, Irish Catholic theologian John O’Donohue tells the story of a giant stone in an Irish town. “In silence and stillness, the

stone held the memory of the village. Stone is the tabernacle of memory. Until we allow some of Nature’s stillness to reclaim us, we will remain victims of the instant and never enter the heritage of our ancient belonging.” O’Donohue wrote that the Celtic imagination loved the circle. “It recognized how the rhythm of experience, nature and divinity followed a circular pattern.” The creation of the stone circles remains mysterious. It’s hard to imagine how the giant stones were moved to what are sometimes almost inaccessible locations.

The Kingston EMC - Thursday, July 11, 2013


Kingston Animal Rescue issues community plea for foster homes EMC News – “Foster homes are the heart of Kingston Animal Rescue (KAR),” says one of the organizations founders, Kareen Lush. That being said, KAR is in need of additional foster homes and is issuing a community plea in the hopes of filling these vital volunteer roles within the organization. “I think it is that time of year where shelters, rescues, everybody is full, so we’re getting requests regularly,” Lush explains. “We hear from people even from outside of Kingston that are contacting us in Kingston because their regional shelter or rescues are full and now they are branching out to other communities.” Fellow KAR founder Jessica Hellard elaborates that we are in the thick of kitten season, a time when shelters many shelters, rescues and other animal organizations are overflowing with cats and kittens. In turn, there is often little to no room for additional animal intakes. “There is a huge need for foster homes right now,” Hellard said. “There are a lot of animals that we can’t help until we have foster homes. We have waiting lists of people and animals that just need

into the rescue as soon as possible and we can’t do anything until we have foster homes for them.” Currently KAR operates with close to 30 foster homes and has in and around 40 animals—mainly cats and rabbits—in its care. The rescue could open its doors to additional animals if more foster homes came on board. “We are limited always by the number of foster homes that we have, so if we had 100 foster homes tomorrow—good, well-screened foster homes—then we would be able to fill them up within a short time,” Lush said. “The whole idea of the plea is to try and have as many foster homes as possible so we can help more animals.” For those interested in assisting KAR and becoming a foster home, the first step is to fill out an application. Applications can be found online at www.kingstonanimalrescue.com. Being a foster entails providing shelter, food, water, and love for an animal waiting to be adopted. KAR provides fosters with all start-up supplies (i.e. housing, bowls, litter box, an initial supply of food, bedding, and litter); unlimited hay for those fostering rabbits, guinea pigs and degus; all veterinary care; and continued support and advice. “When you’re fostering an ani-

mal, you are truly making a difference in that transitional time in an animal’s life,” Lush says. “They’re in a home environment, they’re socialized, they’re loved, and they receive lots of one-on-one time.” Hellard agrees, explaining that animals that previously entered the rescue and maybe displayed behvioural issues later came to thrive in their foster home environments. “It’s very rewarding for our foster homes to see those animals come around,” she says. No benchmark has been set as to the number of foster homes the organization hopes to add to its current roster and all interested parties are invited to apply. ���Foster homes are a wonderful part of this type of organization. There are other organizations like Kingston Animal Rescue who function with foster homes as well, and it’s a great way for adoptable animals to wait for their forever homes,” Lush says.

Community will be “pulling together” for epilepsy fundraiser By Kelly Reid Correspondent

EMC Events - On July 21, the Epilepsy and Seizure Disorder Resource Centre of Southeastern Ontario will be holding a unique event to raise funds and awareness. The Centre will be hosting its first ever Fire Truck Pull, in which teams of eight will drag a 31-foot fire truck a distance of 100 feet. The event will have prizes for fastest pull, most funds raised, best spirit, and a combination award. According to Executive Director Susan Harrison, the idea for the fire truck pull was inspired by a similar event held by Epilepsy Durham Region. Though that organization is unaffiliated with Kingston, they shared their success and the idea took hold here locally. Harrison says that the fundraiser will serve two purposes: “One is to raise funds, and the other is to raise awareness.” In the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington area, there are about 2,000 people living with epilepsy or seizure disorder. “The number of people actually affected grows exponentially,” Harrison explains, because of family and friends that are also affected. According to the Centre, pulling the fire truck 100 feet is symbolic of the onein-one hundred people that live with epilepsy. “Being diagnosed, people enter this new world,” says Harrison. “Awareness

of our services is lower than we would like.” With the help of Special Events Coordinator Laura Casselman, the centre hopes that the fire truck pull will increase its visibility in the community. “We’re hoping to make it an annual thing,” says Casselman. “We’re just hoping the community enjoys it.” The fire truck pull event will be happening from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Ontario Street in front of City Hall. Admission will be free all day. In addition to the pull, which will start at 1 p.m., the fundraiser will include food, interactive games, and lots of information. “The idea is to have a family-friendly day for the entire community,” says Casselman. The pull will begin with an honourary team consisting of folks living with epilepsy, some of their family members, as well as local Member of Parliament Ted Hsu. Some of the other teams already registered include members of Kingston Fire & Rescue, with whom the centre partnered to run the event. “They’ve been incredibly supportive and receptive,” says Harrison. The centre has a fundraising goal of $12,000 for the event, but both Casselman and Harrison say that the real goal is to provide a successful and fun event. There are a number of spaces for teams still available, and the centre is also looking for volunteers to help with running the fundraiser. “We’d be thrilled to have them sign up,”

Executive Director, Susan Harrison, and Events Coordinator, Laura Casselman, look forward to their first annual Fire Truck Pull. says Harrison of anyone that might be interested in volunteering. “It’s going to be a

The man behind the food bank’s clockwork precision turned out to be a training ground for what I’m doing now. I had to be creative. I was constantly dealing with different kinds of people. And music is a tough row to hoe, it takes a lot of effort.” He plays a bit of guitar but is primarily a vocalist. He’s composed a lot, created commercial jingles, written movie soundtracks and provided studio backup work. If you’re local, you may well have heard him with Soul Survivors. The band reunited this past year. “I find great comfort in music,” he said. “It’s a stabilizing factor. I get lost in the physicality and camaraderie of it.” After high school he attended George Brown College for a program in horology. I consider myself fairly literate, but that one stumped me, so I had to ask. Turns out it’s the study of the art and science of measuring time, leading to a specialization in the understanding, including repair and restoration, of

clocks and other timepieces. But Singers was there at the end of an era. Digital timepieces came into fashion. “One of the first raps a teacher gave to us was that when we graduated there weren’t going to be a lot of jobs,” said Singers. “So it turned out to be more of an interest course.” After completing the program, he attended Humber College for carpentry, which has served him well over the years. He continued to be drawn to music. “Like any kid of the 60s, I was hugely influenced by the Beatles,” he said. “Along with Crosby, Stills and Nash, and James Taylor. I was more grounded in folk. But then I became a huge fan of Yes and Genesis and played in a Genesis clone band.” They opened for the likes of famed Canadian rockers like Max Webster and Saga.

EMC Lifestyle - This month marks a twenty-year tenure for Sandy Singers with the Partners in Mission Food Bank. He started out as warehouse manager and driver. When the previous director left twelve years ago, the organization offered Singers the position of coordinator, which morphed into an executive director role. Born in Scotland, Singers moved to Canada with his family when he was three years old. He grew up in the Toronto area. Singers didn’t go through school to prepare for a position in the social services. He was heavily involved in the music scene and for years made his living as a professional musician. “I was a very distracted kid,” he said. “When music came along in the 1960s it was an awakening for me. It was an affirmation that there was a vocation for me and I could carry on with that for a while. It

ASI Group Ltd. (ASI) of St. Catharines is applying to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) to use low level chlorination as a treatment protocol for the control of zebra mussels within the Lafarge Canada Inc. - Bath raw water supply system.

ASI is proposing to inject liquid sodium hypochlorite into the cooling water system at low levels (approximately drinking water concentration) known to control zebra mussel colonization. The effluent (discharge) will be stringently monitored under guidelines set forth by the MOE for zero discharge of chlorine. The length of the program is approximately fourteen days in duration and will be performed on a yearly basis as required. The 2013 operation will begin in July.

always thinking about innovation and sustaining. I really enjoy the people a lot. Our volunteers are phenomenal and staff are great. I’m meeting people in the community constantly. I really enjoy that part of it, encountering all different kinds of people from all walks of life and economic levels.” The meaningful work gives Singers a sense of fulfillment. “I wouldn’t be happy in a job in the profit world,” he said. “We’re doing things here to help people out. I’m very proud to work here. We have tremendous results on our dollar to service ratio. Less than 9% of income goes to administrative costs. We’re a lean mean machine. The demand for our services has exploded since 2008 and we’ve been able to keep pace. We do it on a limited budget and I’m very grateful to the community. He said future plans offer exciting innovations in the area of sustainability. “We’re good at collecting and distributing nonperishable items, and we’re able to provide fresh produce during the growing season,” he said. “But the rest of the year, there’s not enough fresh food available. We’re diligently looking into having the ability to produce food.” The way of the future? Aquaponics. “It involves raising fish and hydroponicallygrown vegetables,” said Singers. “There’s a purification process and fish produce fertilizer for the plants.” Singers said that the Biology Department of Queen’s University is interested in developing this project. “Some profs are doing this on an experimental level,” he said. “They’d like to do something on a larger scale.”

Right now the search is on for a large site and there are ongoing discussions with the Ontario Government about accessing property to run such a program. “The folks at Queen’s are really into this,” said Singers. “They’d like to develop aquaponics as a business. On our end, we’d like to produce food year round and possibly be able to sustain the project by marketing produce as well.” He said there are multiple layers of potential in such a program, including training and marketing. He thinks that the timeframe to get this project running is about two years. This is high-level innovation and could be earth shattering in a positive way for food bank programs around the world. The Kingston project would be the first food bank use of this innovative strategy. “Aquaponics is one of the fastest growing food production projects in North America,” said Singers. “Inland fisheries is the general wave of the future. You have a controlled environment for organic production. This is a burgeoning project of the future.” Singers hopes such a program could also incorporate training components for low-income earners to enter a new career in aquaponics. After 20 years with the Partners in Mission Food Bank, what does the next decade or two hold for Sandy Singers? “I’m not going anywhere,” he said. “I hadn’t planned on staying 20 years, but I’m happy here. I’ve resigned myself to being here until they give me my gold watch.” Sandy’s a down-to-earth guy. When that retirement day arrives, I hope his gold watch is mechanical, with real clock innards, not some digital thing.

Kingston food truck promotes fresh gourmet food By Mandy Marciniak Correspondent

EMC Business - There is a new lunch destination in Kingston, and it’s setting out to prove that fresh, fabulous, local food can come out of a truck. Logan’s Lunch, which currently serves out of the Princess Auto parking lot on Centennial Drive, opened this spring and is already impressing Kingston foodies. The truck is run by retired Kingston native Melanie Kerr. “I am very much a foodie and as I was looking for things to do in my retirement the idea of a gourmet food truck became quite appealing. It certainly is a trend in the food industry and people are understanding that curbside cuisine can be more than just a chip truck. We thought it would be a fun project.” The truck is named after Kerr’s younger daughter.

“Years and years ago, we had a little restaurant in Napanee that we named after my eldest daughter Emily, so we thought it would be equal opportunity to name this endeavour after Logan,” explained Kerr. The truck’s appeal comes in the fact that it offers a different variety of food than that which is typically seen at a food truck. “Our whole kind of theme and message is that we serve only fresh food. All of our ingredients are fresh and everything is prepared fresh to order. We don’t have a hot dog roller or heat lamps; everything is cooked from when it is ordered at the window. We have a fully equipped kitchen in the truck, so we are very well prepared and can cook basically anything that we’d like,” explained Kerr. The truck has seen great success and multiple customers who keep coming back and comment-

While Logan’s Lunch currently resides in the same spot daily and only serves lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Kerr hopes this will change in the near future. “We are working with the city because we would like to be able to move around a bit and operate out of Lake Ontario Park and City Park, as well as go to some of the seasonal events throughout the city. If this happens, I expect that

I like being able to show people that fresh can be fabulous and I also really enjoy interacting with customers on a daily basis. I really enjoy talking with people and being able to learn from them. It is amazing to me how much you can learn by simply talking to people. I learn something new every day and I just really enjoy interacting with them and socializing with them.”

L.M. Montgomery’s iconic characters come alive in Kingston this summer in Blue Canoe’s Anne and Gilbert By Hollie Pratt-Campbell

close-knit community...It almost sounds like it could be three old guys in Prince Edward Island jamming on their porch.” Richards notes that this homegrown feeling is likely why Canadians feel so connected to Anne and Gilbert and the entire Anne series. “This isn’t just a musical written in Canada,” he says. “It’s a Canadian musical.” Anne and Gilbert was adapted by Jeff Hochhauser, Nancy White and Bob Johnston. Blue Canoe’s production runs Thursdays - Saturdays July 18 – Aug. 3 at the Domino Theatre. For ticket information, please visit www.bluecanoeproductions.ca.

EMC Entertainment - Sophie Waldman and Hailey Hill get to live out a treasured childhood dream held by many generations Canadian girls this summer, as they prepare to portray Lucy Maud Montgomery’s iconic characters Anne Shirley and Diana Barry in Blue Canoe’s production of Anne and Gilbert. “It almost feels like you’re a Disney princess,” Hill says. “I remember watching the animated series as a kid a lot and wanting to be Diana Barry all the time, so to actually play her is so cool.” Waldman, who plays Anne, was also a big fan of the television shows growing up. “To be able to play that character that you’ve watched all those years is a really big honour,” she says. Waldman explains that while she was very familiar with the first book in the series, Anne of Green Gables, she has recently been catching up on its next two sequels, Anne of Avonlea and Anne of the Island, on which the musical Anne and Gilbert is based. When this story begins, Anne is an independent-minded young woman about to begin a teaching job at a oneroom school house. Complications arise when her childhood sweetheart, Gilbert Blythe, proposes marriage, unearthing questions and emotions about Anne’s orphan past. “Reading the books helps me get a lot of insight, because in the script you can’t always tell her motives and why she’s doing what it is she’s doing,” Waldman says. “But the book helps explain her perspective and her way of thinking.” Indeed, she and Hill note that with the honour of portraying these beloved characters comes with a certain amount of pressure. “I think the main thing for any of us is just making sure it’s accurate and loveable for everyone,” Hill says. “These characters are so well known, if we make one wrong character decision, some people could be upset about that because they’ve loved them for so long.” Director Jordan Richards describes feeling a similar pressure, particularly since he was unfamiliar with the series before taking on the project. “When I decided to do this, all I really knew about Anne of Green Gables was that there used to be this show on CBC that I would skip through,” he says. “I Sophie Waldman (Left) and Hailey Hill rehearse Anne was by no means a fan of the materials then.” Photo/Hollie Pratt-Campbell Over the last several months, however, Richards and Gilbert. sought out every Anne adaptation he could find – from the original novels to the television show Road to Avonlea to an old silent film from the ‘20s – in order to get a full perspective on the world created by L.M. Montgomery and the characters who reside there. “I knew that if I was going to attack this show, it had COACH & TOURS to be as true to the source material as possible, because that’s what people are here for,” he says. “I knew I needed to become more familiar with the source material in order to really flesh these characters out, because there are characters that are integral in the entire story arc who [appear for only one moment in the musical], and I know for fans of the series, if that one moment doesn’t fit right they’re going to know.” Richards says that the music itself also helps to authenticate the mood of the show. Instead of the more The Empress of Ottawa - Wednesday, July 24/13 traditional Broadway brass band sound, he explains, Newfoundland Spectacular - July 26-Aug 13/13 the music is very Canadian Open Golf Tournament - Sunday, July 28/13 soft and folk- SINKING IN DEBT?

Consider adding one of these animals to your family

Minou is a two-year-old, female Domestic Shorthair mix. She is very sweet and would make a nice lap cat. Pay her a visit at the shelter today.

Mickey is a three-year-old, male Shih Tzu mix. We’re not sure what breed Mickey is mixed with, as he has rather long legs for a Shih Tzu, but he is 100% adorable! Mickey seems fine with other dogs and would likely be fine in a home with children over 6.

Sparky, Maurice and Julian are fourmonth-old, male Domestic Shorthair mixes. These little charmers can’t wait to meet you. Sparky (the white one) is lively, friendly, and very playful. Maurice (orange tabby/white) is an imperturbable little Buddha. Julian (the tuxedo guy) embodies the best of both worlds. He’s eager like Sparky, and calm like Maurice. No matter what you’re looking for in a cat, one of these kittens is sure to please.

Tessa is a one-year-old, female smallmedium breed dog - possibly a Jack Russell Terrier mix. If you’re missing a little joy in your life, Tessa is your girl. She always has a smile on her face and loves to meet new people and dogs - her antics will put a smile on your face too. Tessa should be a great fit for kids over 6 and a first-time owner. Tessa loves a good cuddle, but she is no couch potato!

Blissful day at Fort Henry’s outdoor Battery Bistro EMC Lifestyle - Within the walls of Fort Henry, we gazed across the lake, lunching and sipping sangria cocktails. Inside the fortress, the sounds of the drums and flutes echoed as a reminder that we were dining in this unique slice of history. The Battery Bistro is a new outdoor restaurant located at this world heritage site and is the home of Kingston’s largest waterfront patio. If you ever needed a reason to revisit Fort Henry, now is the time. Fort Henry is managed by the St. Lawrence Parks Commission and guards the convergence of the Rideau Canal, Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. It is designated as a National Historic Site for its defense of these waterways, this region and its role as a key historical fortification site. You can learn so much from those that came before us. Museums, once buildings of old collections for groups to view, now offer more interactive ways for guests to connect and experience history.

Fort Henry has always led with this model, offering unique activities— artillery demonstrations, Victorian school lessons, etc.—where people can gain insight into what life was like 150 years ago. And with the new Discovery Centre, there is even more for the history buff and the not-so-sure to enjoy. We try to attend a Sunset Ceremony each summer, and of course our teen can’t miss out on the spooky spectacular of Fort Fright when it returns each the fall. There is so much going on at the Fort, from the new concert series, Sunset Ceremony redevelopment, Trade Market and the opening of the Battery Bistro – it’s a great place to visit this summer break. When I suggested to a visiting friend (she lives 35 km away) that we visit Fort Henry with the kids for lunch I was amazed to learn that she hadn’t been since she herself was a child. The Battery Bistro opened in May this year, just in time for summer visitors. The 200-seat restaurant is a long outdoor patio that butts up against the fortress wall. It’s open daily from Where you always save a bundle! 11:30 a.m. till 9 For Donation Pickup p.m. throughout the summer till 613-544-4396 Labor Day.

Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, the Royal Military College and the city. The five of us dined at the railing so we could look directly across the water at the scenic wind turbines and boats passing by. We arrived in the afternoon so the lunch rush was over and, given it was a Wednesday, preparations had begun for the live entertainment on the patio for evening dinner guests to enjoy before the Sunset Ceremony kicked off. The Fort has adopted a live music program this year featuring several local artists including Rob Carnegie, Chris Koster, Emily Fennell, Greg Ball, Kris and Dee to name a few. The best part is there is no parking or admission fee to visit the Battery Bistro or the Trade Markets. Drop in and shop in the square, which features local artisans; stay and enjoy lunch or dinner in the Battery Bistro and listen to a local musician. Guests simply pay a $1.50 service fee per person, which goes directly to Fort Henry to assist with maintenance of the World Heritage Site. Our group was two adults, two teenagers and a child. The menu offered a variety for us all to enjoy. We ordered the Gazpacho soup (a spicy chilled Spanish soup served with onion, cucumber and basil); deep-fried wedges of dill pickles; a fresh melon and strawberry salad; the haddock fish and chips; traditional kids chicken fingers; and the tasty chicken Caesar salad. The menu offers a different variety to the Sunset Ceremony’s casual barbecue and fine dining candlelight dinners. Thankfully, the same

quality and attention to detail that Paul Fortier and his team at Jessop Foods has offered for years at the Fort carries through to this unique dining experience. It can get hot on the patio so umbrellas have arrived to offer shade in this sensational spot. The Bistro is a wonderful addition with a wide choice of light snacks and upscale main courses to enjoy on the stunning new patio.
