Filling the ambulance with holiday cheer

EMC News – Civic leaders are hailing the 2013 property tax increase as the lowest in over a decade and a lesson in careful planning. “I’m very happy with the way the budget is going and I think taxpayers will be too,” said Mayor Mark Gerretsen. Next year’s property tax bill will be 2.5 percent higher than 2012, just enough to cover inflationary costs and infrastructure upgrades. The mayor called it “historic” to set the city’s lowest tax increase since

amalgamation in 1998. “It’s about $75 more for an average house assessed at $250,000,” said treasurer Desiree Kennedy. Homeowners’ final tax bill will also depend on what the province does with education taxes and the impact of the recent property assessments. Councillors rubberstamped that 2013 municipal operating budget November 27 after two nights of departmental presentations and very little debate. They defended speedy budget deliberations that have become the norm in recent years. “We’re only able to do

these very quickly because of all the work that’s done beforehand,” said Gerretsen, referring to strategic planning meetings held last spring. “It just makes the decision-making that much easier,” said Coun. Brian Reitzel. “We know ahead of time where we are going with the budget.” The annual strategy sessions allow council to set their tax-and-spend priorities, removing much of the guesswork and politics from the actual late fall budget process, Gerretsen explained. “I hope council puts the same challenges to staff in future years.”

However, not everyone is enthused over the fasttrack budget talks. Coun. Rob Hutchison says the high-level discussions lack detail. “The preparatory work done by staff is excellent. But it would good, at least once a term, for us to see the line by line budgets.” Under the current process, councillors and the public get access to two binders – one for municipal operating and capital budgets, and one for the gas, water and sewer utility budgets. The documents list spending and revenue lines for each department or service, but no detailed

breakdown of how tax dollars are spent. It would likely take many binders to detail all areas of spending in the $309 million operating budget for 2013. The companion 2013 capital budget – money allocated to repair municipal roads, buildings and vehicles – will not be fully approved until June. “We have extensive projects totalling $175 million that were approved and we want to clean those out first,” Kennedy explained. Staff also want to hear council’s capital spending priorities before finalizing See Budget page 3

Replace golfing greens with green energy at Belle Park; staff recommend EMC News – Kingston’s money-losing public golf course is on par for closure after the 2013 season, if councillors adopt a new staff report. It recommends the 9-hole Belle Park Fairways on Montreal Street be replaced with a money-making solar farm and passive recreational space. “Not only will the solar panels create green energy but would also generate significant revenues,” according to a report by community services commissioner Lanie Hurdle. The recommendation is among four options debated by council at its December 4 meeting. The other options include; keep status quo tax-subsidized golfing at Belle Park, outsource golfing to the private sector, or terminate golfing and transform the entire area into a passive

park. However, staff favour a fourth option to close the golf course and build a solar farm on 30 of the park’s 56 acres and use the rest of the civic property for passive park uses. Quantum Energy Inc., a consultant hired by the city to study the options, estimates it will cost $8.7 million to $12.9 million to install rows of solar panels over the golf course and sell the electricity to the province’s power grid through the Feed-in-Tariff program. The debt repayment will cost $949,000 a year over 20 years, still generating annual net revenues of $330,000 for the city to spend as it wants, Hurdle said. The future of Belle Park has been under review for months due to mounting tax subsidies and declining memberships. The only city-run golf course has operated in a growing deficit position since 2006 and required a tax subsidy of

$203,000 in 2011, while membership declined by 30 percent in the past few years to just 171 members this year. It’s a trend that’s unlikely to turn around in future years, staff warned. They point to a recent study that found other municipal golf courses in Ontario are also losing money despite large capital investments to improve the quality of courses. By comparison, the city has invested nothing to make Belle Park more attractive to users since 2007. It would cost one million dollars to resurface the tee decks, relocate greens and resurface the fairways – tax money the city appears unwilling to spend. The so-called third party option of turning the operation over to the private sector as a competitive golfing business would also be a losing gamble, the consultant concluded, because the course sits atop a municipal dump and there are

environmental limitations and green fees would jump significantly. Based on the consultant’s advice, staff concluded the most sustainable use for the property is to install rows of money-making solar panels on the fairways generating three megawatts of electricity, while transforming the rest of the site into walking trails and park space with tennis and basketball courts and recreational programs. “This operation would not only create a significant public access but would also increase the city’s revenues and would be socially, economically and environmentally sustainable,” Hurdle noted. She says after one more season of golfing the park’s transformation would begin in 2014 and be finished by 2016. The inner city Belle Park Fairways has operated as a municipal golf course since 1975.

BUDGET From page 1

that budget. “We can’t afford all of them so we need some direction from council,” said Kennedy. As for the operating budget; garbage collection, fire and police protection, parks maintenance, winter control and other services are projected to have the same staffing or service levels in 2013. In fact, a few services like Kingston Transit will be enhanced with the launch of a westend to downtown express route next fall. City finance officials say the lower tax increase was achieved through $2.8 million in savings, including ambitious plans to equip street and traffic lights with LED technology and delaying cultural and other tran-

sit improvements. “It’s not just finding efficiencies and cutting services, it about finding new revenue opportunities,” said the mayor. Councillors initially projected a 3.5 percent tax hike for 2013, matching rates in 2011 and 2012, but focused on lowering the rate in the face of a homeowner backlash. However, chief administrator Gerard Hunt warned a 2.5 percent rate increase may be difficult to sustain in future years without service cuts or new funding sources. The 2014 budget process has already started. A controversial plan unveiled to council this week is to close the money-losing public golf course at Belle Park after the 2013 season and convert it to a solar farm generating $330,000 in annual profits.

Something sweet has opened in the Village of Bath By Kristen Coughlar

kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC Business – Growing up Jason MacKenzie wasn’t much of a chocolate eater. It may come as a surprise then that he recently opened a chocolate store in the Village of Bath. “It’s funny how things work out eh?” he says. Jason’s introduction to chocolate making occurred in the early 90s at his mother’s store, The Chocolate Carousel. It was there that he began learning family recipes he would one day use to make

his own decadent sweets. “I knew when the store closed (in 1995) I wanted to keep it going some day and it just happens to be now,” he says. For the past three years, Jason has been selling his products wholesale to Bread & Butter Bakery and Fine Pastries in Kingston. Last Thursday, he took the next step, opening MacKenzie Chocolate Company, located at 363 Main St. in Bath. He noted that he had been on the lookout for a storefront for quite some time when his mother found the village loca-

tion. “We thought it would be a really good destination point,” he says. For the past month, they both have been hard at work preparing for the business to open in time for holiday shoppers to buy its products. Jason’s products are made using Callebaut Belgian Chocolate and only the purest of Kingston-sourced products. You won’t find any artificial flavourings or preservatives used in these decadent delights. His products include chocolate peanut butter cups,

portunity to open his business in Bath and says the village residents have been very welcoming. “We want to make it a destination point. I want to be known as “the” chocolate shop,” he says. If the business proves successful, Jason hopes to invest in a fudge pot and beginning selling the rich, sweet confectionary in the spring. In the future he also hopes to expand the business to include a kitchen. He currently makes all the chocolate out of his home in Odessa. “I would like to make it here so people can actually see what we do…I’d like to

chocolate marshmallows, chocolate covered pretzels, almond and pecan bark, chocolate covered handmade caramel sprinkled with sea salt, and truffles made with fresh buttercream and hand dipped in pure Belgian Chocolate. His No. 1 seller is his Pecan Patties made with handmade caramel, roasted fresh pecans and covered in milk or dark Belgian Chocolate. In addition to his own products, Jason also sells products from Tracy’s Wine Jellies (Niagara-on-the-Lake) and Isobel & Company (Ottawa) at MacKenzie Chocolate Company. Jason is excited for the op-

get the smell in here too of making the caramel and the chocolate; it brings people in,” he says. MacKenzie Chocolate Company, located at 363 Main St. in Bath, is open Thursday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Gift trays, specialty baskets and custom order requests welcome.

Hotel Dieu’s expanded patient role to affect shoppers, monthly permit holders Reporter

Chown Memorial parking garage Ralph Bond told the November 20 council meeting. The hospital saw 410,000 patient visits last year, a figure that’s going to increase by 13 percent. In addition, the city is bringing in new traffic calming measures to improve pedestrian safety in front of the hospital, including a lower speed limit of 40 kph and the installation of three ‘flat top’ speed humps on Brock Street

near Montreal Street. Thousands of pedestrians cross mid-block between the Chown garage and the hospital every day. Mayor Mark Gerretsen wanted to know why speed humps must be installed on an arterial road, contrary to the city’s own policy. “This is certainly a unique situation,” explained Deanna Green, manager of the city’s traffic division. “We need to

EMC News – The firsthour free parking program in downtown garages will come to a screeching halt as of January 1. The shopper-friendly program, launched six years ago, is being cancelled to help free up more short-term parking spaces for Hotel Dieu Hospital. City officials estimate this will generate extra revenue of $50,000 a year – money that will be used to launch new shopper incentive programs that are still to be worked out. The elimination of firsthour free parking in the Chown and Hanson garages is one of several strategies adopted by council to make room for 56,000 additional patients the Dieu’s expanded clinical role will need to accommodate in the New Year. The city also plans to free up more garage space by converting Brock Street Pay & Display machines for monthly permit holders to use, instead of the multilevel Chown garage. “There is enough parking in the area. The question is how to manage it better,” transportation consultant

handle the risk.” There were questions about whether the municipality will increase its legal liability by tacitly allowing pedestrians to jaywalk between the parking garage and the hospital. The mayor suggested the installation of physical barriers to force people to use the nearby traffic lights for their own safety. City solicitor Hal Linscott says speed humps and a reduced speed limit near the hospital are just extra tools that can be used to “make a challenging situation safer.” An estimated 2,400 pedestrians jaywalk to and from the hospital every day, and there’s only been one collision in 10 years. However, Green defended the extra measures based on field observations. “That midblock area in the middle of the day looks like a pedestrian mall,” she explained. “I think the risk is that there could be a (car-pedestrian) collision.” Most of the parking shuffle and traffic calming changes will be implemented in the New Year, avoiding the costly alternative of expanding the 440-space Chown garage, already the city’s largest.

More than meds:

Graham’s Pharmacy opens in downtown Kingston By Kristen Coughlar

kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC Business – Traditional care with modern solutions—that is what you’ll find at Graham’s Pharmacy. Located at 328 King St., the business, which celebrated its grand opening Monday, is owned and operated by Dave Graham. A native of the Limestone City, Graham says he’s always held an interest in the health care profession. “I’m really attracted by how you can have the autonomy of

“It really opened my eyes to more of a personal care setting where its pharmacy first and pharmacy only,” he says. There, customers and staff were on a first-name basis and had developed a good rapport. Graham is hoping to develop that same setting in the heart of downtown Kingston. “We want to be more than meds,” he says, noting that the idea is for Graham’s Pharmacy and its staff, which includes Sarah Cripps, Lisa MacLaren and Ali Ewing, to be a resource for customers.

a profession like this and take it wherever you want and work in any city, village or town,” he says. Since the age of 16, Graham has held a job within a pharmacy-related business. He’s been a cashier, technician, pharmacist and even a franchise owner with Shoppers Drug Mart. More recently Graham, who holds a Master of Pharmacy degree and is a certified diabetes educator, was employed by DrugSmart Pharmacy in Sydenham. It was there that he became inspired to open his own business.

“We’re looking to become a total care partner where we are on their side to help navigate them through health concerns and questions…and where we can’t take care of these concerns through pharmaceutical aspect we want to become a venue for referrals to other heath care practitioners.” Grahams Pharmacy will offer pharmacy and health-related products in a setting reminiscent of a 1920s apothecary, a traditional care setting with all the health care solutions and technologies of the modern world. Graham noted that the pharmacy’s product stock will grow and evolve depending on the needs of

its customers. “The advantage of a small community pharmacy is…we can change to fit the needs of our surroundings quickly, whereas when you’re in a big franchise corporation everything is done at national level,” he says. “So if someone wants a one-off product, even if we don’t’ have it, it will be here the next day if we can get it.” In addition, the pharmacy will also host monthly clinics, where customers can sign up and sit down one-on-one with a health-care practitioner to discuss questions and concerns related to diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiovascular, eye health and nutrition.

Graham says he’s excited for the opportunity to open a pharmacy in Kingston and help meet the health care needs of area residents. He notes that Kingston is a growing city with a more senior population than other areas in Canada. With that, there may be more medical concerns, questions and a need for a stronger health care network. “Our goal here is to help, in our own way, strengthen that network,” he says.

EDITORIAL

EMC - Your Community Newspaper IN OUR OPINION

Keep Christmas in your own way Coughlar's Corner By Kristen Coughlar kcoughlar@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial – During one of my morning commutes last week, a whopping three kilometer drive from my driveway to the office parking lot, I was shuffling through various regional radio stations in search of a good tune to start off my morning when I heard Johnny Spezzano of The Border 106.7 posing a question to his listeners. Holiday inflatables: tacky or cute? That was his question. I tuned in. I was curious to find out how listen-

ers would respond. While Johnny and one listener agreed that inflatable outdoor lawn decorations are cute, the four or five others who called in were adamant that they are tacky. How would I answer Johnny’s question? There’s no doubt about it, holiday inflatables are tacky in my book. When it comes to outdoor holiday décor, I’m all about lights. Whether rooftop lights, lighted garland, wreaths or lawn decorations, I feel Christmas lights provide a touch of elegance and adds to the warmth and joy of the holiday season. In contrast, I feel as though inflatables are far too cartoonish and over the top. I prefer my animated holiday characters be confined to the TV, not my front lawn. Some of

their sizes are obnoxious and their themes bizarre. Snoopy on a motorcycle, Mater with a reindeer hat. Really? I will admit however, that inflatables aren’t the only tacky thing out there. There are lighted outdoor lawn decorations that cross the line into ridiculous. When did dinosaurs, pigs and flamingos become synonymous with Christmas? Whether its Christmas tree ornaments or indoor/ outdoor holiday decorations, I find it’s becoming harder and harder to find quality Christmas décor. In my hunt for a Christmas tree, I’ve also started shopping for Christmas ornaments to decorate said tree. I’ve seen some weird stuff on my shopping travels, including weird animal ornaments, including a squid and crocodile.

There seems to be an increase in tacky across the board year after year. That being said, I understand that not all probably find that which I’ve described above as tacky. In fact, there are those who might find it cute and fun. I guess I’m just a fan of the traditional Christmas, a Christmas style which some might find a bore. At the end of the day, while it might not be my taste, I’m a fan of everyone getting into the holiday spirit and decorating inside and outside their home. To steal a line from Ebenezer Scrooge, “Keep Christmas in your own way, and let me keep it in mine.” Rest assured, it will be a traditional Christmas at the Coughlar residence. You’ll see a holiday inflatable on my lawn when I see a pig on the slopes.

In Our Opinion

First Nations deserve better from Canada

EMC Editorial – Last weekend, the Canadian media reported that Kashechewan First Nation, a Cree community located near James Bay in northern Ontario, had declared a state of emergency the week before. The news was shocking for two reasons: first, because of the unacceptable conditions that prompted the declaration; and second, because it was the first the general public was hearing of the situation. According to the CBC, the community raised the red flag “because it was running out of fuel and because 21 houses were not fit to face winter,” and “the federal government stepped in with help, just in the nick of time.” The broadcaster reported that several remote northern Ontario communities are in desperate need of fuel. The situation calls to mind that of neighbouring community Attawapiskat, which declared a state of emergency in October 2011 because of poor housing conditions and infrastructure. That crisis also made national headlines. We often talk about how fortunate “we” are to live in Canada and have so much. How can it be, then, that fellow Canadians live in such conditions? And how is it that when they need us to rally around them, when they are in a state of emergency, we only first hear about it days later? It’s sad to think that this has become the new – or unfortunately, not so new – normal. That rather than demand consistent and meaningful aid for all Canadians in need, we allow conditions to deteriorate until a state of emergency is necessary. Everyone has a role to play in ensuring that all Canadians have access to safe housing and solid infrastructure. The media must do a better job of communicating about these crises in a timely fashion, individuals must educate themselves and be aware that not all Canadians are as fortunate as they should be, and our government must adequately help these vulnerable communities rather than come up with Bandaid solutions when a crisis occurs. It seems naive to talk about how fortunate “Canadians” are when such a significant portion of the population lives in conditions many of us could not begin to imagine. Interestingly, the CBC also noted that “according to the declarations, [Kashechewan] had asked Ottawa for help beforehand, but to no avail.” This should shock and anger us into action. If it does not, we have a much larger state of emergency on our hands.

City Hall’s fast budget process: A bother or blessing for residents? City Commentary By Bill Hutchins editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial – City council’s recent lighteningswift approval of the 2013 operating budget may signal a new era of political cooperation and fiscal discipline.

Budget season traditionally brought out the worst of councillors when it came to fighting for their own pet projects and make up policy on the fly. There was a time when past councils would get bogged down for days questioning and debating lineby-line spending items in what is now a third of a billion dollar corporation. They would bicker over the need to spend a few thousand dollars on services without much regard to the big picture. In recent years, we see

s ’ d i v Da

OPTICAL

David Delisle

nothing but the high-level, almost routine budgeting where multi-million dollar budget items barely get a mention. It’s what most councillors want. No messy fine print. No haggling over nickles and dimes. The end result, as everyone likes to trumpet for 2013, is Kingston’s lowest property tax increase (a ‘low increase’ sounds weird but fits the political times) since the benchmark year of citytownships amalgamating in 1998. Let’s face it, the days of a zero-percent budgeting are unlikely to happen again like they did in the 90’s. Inflationary pressures, rising civic salaries and the never-ending need to invest in roads, sewers and other infrastructure will ensure at least some tax hike every year. It was a noted milestone when homeowners pressured this council

to climb down from the 3.5 percent tax pedestal adopted in the previous two years. If you can term this blink-and-miss-it budget a success, then what’s the secret? The main credit should go to department heads who heeded the austerity requests of council to make spending cuts or delay service increases without waiting for councillors to do it for them. The library, for example, wanted expanded hours at two branches but didn’t bother asking for it. The other important change is that council set priorities early in the term and then revisits and refines them every year for staff to follow. This process removes much of the guesswork and surprises at budget time. What’s good for the political process may not be so good for homeowners and

others who want to see more a more detailed analysis of how tax dollars are spent. Even Coun. Rob Hutchison lamented that it would’ve been nice to at least have access to the detailed budget line items to help frame some questions of staff. It is, after all, one of the few times of year when councillors get to question department heads and external agencies directly about the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of spending. The devil, they say, is in the details. There will be another chance to delve into those details. The city’s annual capital budget for roads and other infrastructure projects was not unveiled in harmony with the operating budget this year. It’s been held back until June of 2013 so staff can finish spending a backlog of approved capital monies and for council to

establish new capital priorities. And there’s a lot of future costs to consider here; finish the John Counter Boulevard widening project, expand west end water/ sewage treatment plants, and start the third crossing bridge to name some of the biggies. Since part of the capital budget is tied to the tax rate (one percent of the just-approved 2.5 percent increase is dedicated for capital projects) you can expect more budget and policy talk over the coming months. It should also be noted that much of the backpocket money to finance previous capital projects came from the policies and higher tax rates of previous councils. They laid the groundwork for the fiscal freedom that current councillors and residents can enjoy today.

2012 another record-breaking-year for local United Way campaign kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC News – “Today’s an important day that we’ve all been working towards. Some 78 days have passed since we met in this very room to launch the most ambitious United Way campaign in Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington history,” United Way Campaign Chair Lloyd Fleming said, as he stood in front of hundreds at the Ambassador Conference Resort. A sold out crowd had gathered in anticipation, hoping to hear that the local United Way once again reached its 11-week fundraising goal. “I must say I was a bit anxious announcing a goal of $3.35 million, an increase of $150,000 over last year’s goal, given some of the workplace pressures we’ve been reading about, particularly in the public sector. It wasn’t going to be an easy task for any of us. However, I also recall leaving that morning inspired by the commitment and passion that each of the 600 attendees displayed in taking up our challenge,” Fleming continued.

In the weeks that followed the Sept. 11 campaign launch, over 2,000 volunteers devoted their time to running workplace campaigns or holding fundraising events, helping the United Way inch its way towards its $3.35 million goal. Their efforts once again paid off, as Fleming announced Thursday that the campaign not only achieved its goal, but surpassed it by $53,260. This marks that 14th straight year that the United Way has surpassed its fundraising goal and set a new record for the most money raised in a singleseason local fundraising campaign. At the campaign’s Touchdown Breakfast, Fleming thanked all those who helped raise awareness and funds for the United Way. “I would particularly like to single out our youth, from our elementary, secondary and post-secondary schools, who continue to amaze me with their creativity and passion to assist those in need within our community. I’m extremely confident our future United

Area students reveal that the 2012 KFL&A United Way Campaign surpassed its $3.35 million fundraisPhoto/Kristen Coughlar ing goal by more than $53,000. Way campaigns will be in good hands,” he said. The money raised during this year’s campaign will help support social programs utilized by more than 85,000 people in our community. In the coming weeks community volunteers will review funding applications and make recommendations to the United Way Board of Directors. “We should all feel good about living in com-

munities that care about the well-being of those amongst us who are in the greatest need,” Fleming addressed the crowd. “I would ask that you pass along my thanks to everyone in your respective workplaces for stepping forward to make a difference in this year’s campaign. Whether they were a volunteer, a donor or both, it takes many hands to accomplish what we accomplished this year and nobody let us down.”

PET TAGS

The City is working to make Kingston accessible for all

Residents are reminded to renew their dog and cat licences at www.CityofKingston.ca/pets by Jan. 1, 2013. Collar tags make it easier for strangers and animal control officers to return your lost pet.

The City of Kingston has many ways of communicating, and continues to add to its high-resolution digital display network and Information Radio, so that everyone has access to City information.

The City is developing a Responsible Pet Ownership Program in 2013. It will offer incentives to pet owners who voluntarily register their cats and dogs and outline stricter enforcement of animal control bylaws.

The large high-resolution digital monitors profile City events, programs, interesting facts and other information that is pertinent to residents and visitors. The digital display monitors are in most City facilities where the public congregates.

Pet tags can also save you money: it costs more than $100 to reclaim a lost pet from the pound. If your pet has a tag, your pet can be identified and it may save your pet a trip to the pound.

The City’s Information Radio at 106.3 FM features the audio equivalent of the information on the digital display monitors. The signal has a range of approximately 10 km either side of the antenna housed on the water tower at Gardiners Road.

2013 pet tags cost: • Dog (intact): $46 • Cat (intact): $23

It can also be heard at www. CityofKingston.ca/informationradio

To help control the pet population, the City charges less to register or renew a licence for spayed or neutered pets. Guide dogs can be registered at no cost.

For more on the City’s plans to improve accessibility for all Kingstonians, go to www.CityofKingston.ca/accessibility

City Bylaw 2004-144 requires licences for dogs more than 20 weeks old living in any part of the city and for cats more than 20 weeks old and living in the urban area. Your pet's record includes address, vaccination, tattoos, and other details and is updated when you renew.

WINTER PARKING ON CITY STREETS Winter parking rules now in effect – No parking on City streets overnight As of Saturday, Dec.1, parking is prohibited on all City streets from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. The overnight winter parking bylaw ensures that cars are kept off the streets so that snow plows can effectively respond to winter weather events. Car owners who contravene the bylaw, risk receiving a fine of up to $40, or possibly having their vehicle towed. The parking prohibition remains in place until the end of March, 2013.

• Dog (spayed or neutered): $17.50 • Cat (spayed or neutered): $6.60

You may also license your pet at City Hall, Payment Centre, 216 Ontario St., the Kingston Humane Society, 1 Binnington Crt., and participating veterinary clinics and pet stores including: McEwen Animal Hospital, Sims Animal Hospital, Princess Animal Hospital, Collins Bay Animal Hospital, Frontenac Animal Hospital, Pet Valu Better Pet Nutrition Stores, Global Pet Foods and Pet Paradise.

ADVERTORIAL

Moroni’s Celebrating 25th Anniversary in Gananoque sion of the 80s, people had come out to eat, drink and enjoy each others’ company. But with jobs disappearing, incomes vanished. And disposable income ceased to exist. Giannakouras thought back to his childhood in Greece. Communities were small and strong, with families joining together to become stronger by association. They grew their own fruits and vegetables in the friendly Mediterranean climate, raised their own meat, produced their own milk and eggs. Everyone helped each other, and the whole community benefitted. So he has decided to share that with Gananoque. In celebration of 25 years at 155 King Street East, he is rolling back prices and bringing in whole meals for good old fashioned prices. Winner of the 2003 “Tourism & Hospitality Award” and specializing in Italian, Greek and Canadian cuisine, Moroni’s offers fine dining in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The entire family will feel welcome at any time to delight in anything from traditional burgers and fries, up through spaghetti carbonara, souvlaki dinners to the best pizza in town. Nothing is too good for a Moroni’s customer, and Giannakouras and his entire staff will go out of their way to make you feel at home. “We want everyone to have a good time, to share in our success,” says Giannakouras. “The whole town is invited to come try our new menu and new prices. We want to give something back to everyone, so we’re rolling our prices back to celebrate for a month or two.” There will be dinners for under $10 as part of this grand event, and lunches for under $7. The three course meal is return returning, with a soup or salad, entrée, and dessert. Beverages will be included, and all for a single price.

Moroni’s Mediterranean Family Ristorante invites everyone to come in and celebrate their 25th anniversary with them at 155 King Street East in Gananoque. “We’d be more than happy to have you celebrate your special occasions with us,” says Giannakouras. “Birthdays, anniversaries, everything with family. We need to bring back the old traditions, have everyone come out and have a good time.” Pizza’s will be reduced in price, as will the fish and chips. Everything will be more affordable than it’s been in years. Moroni’s is open every day from 7:00 a.m. until midnight, and Fridays and Saturdays until 1:00 a.m. serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the service is unsurpassed. Staff at Moroni’s come for a job, and stay on to become members of this great community “family”. And on weekends, there’s live entertainment by local musicians to help liven up the evenings. To learn more about this great 25th anniversary celebration, please contact Moroni’s at 613-382-3083 or drop in and let them show you the wonderful dining experience waiting right in the heart of downtown Gananoque. Free in-town delivery on all orders over $15.00.

Nick Giannakouras, owner of Moroni’s Mediterranean Family Ristorante, and his staff are eager to have you come in and celebrate their 25th anniversary with them at 155 King Street East in Gananoque.

R0011789314_1206

After a successful quarter century in Gananoque, businessman Nick Giannakouras, owner of Moroni’s Mediterranean Family Ristorante, has decided it’s time to celebrate. “I love Gananoque,” he says. “Everyone here is my family.” Coming originally from Greece, Giannakouras had grown up with a tradition of honour in family and hard work. He’s been in business in Canada for 45 years, but found that opportunity was shining in Gananoque. When the Moroni’s building and business became available in 1987, he purchased them and moved in with his family. “Gananoque’s a wonderful town,” he says. “Lots of people, lots of tourists, you get to see different faces and talk to different people. Everything was good until the factories closed and people started to struggle.” This saddened him. It wasn’t right that people could no longer afford to go out and have a good time in their own community. Even in the height of the reces-

Essence restaurant provides a unique opportunity for St. Lawrence students of the restaurants in Kingston and they also hire our graduates, so if we advertise and undercut their prices our students have nowhere to go to get work when they graduate,” joked Richard Hendy, co- coordinator of the culinary programs at St. Lawrence College. From October to December, second year students in the culinary program run Essence with the 60 person cohort broken up into groups of 20 for each day. In January, the first year students in the program take over the restaurant, offering them a unique, hands-on learning experience. “They all get to do a service and it gives them a chance to

EMC News - Culinary students at St. Lawrence College are receiving a unique opportunity and gaining valuable experience through their student run restaurant, Essence. The restaurant has been running for the past eight years and serves a three-course lunch from Monday to Wednesday each week for $9.95, a price that is almost unheard of outside of the fast food world. For this reason, Essence doesn’t advertise outside of the university. “We don’t want to take business away from the city and all

gain some experience actually cooking in a kitchen which is essentially a real restaurant. A lot of them, when they come into our program, have no experience at all. It gives them a chance to go into a position they have never been in before and gain valuable experience before they go out into the trade,” explained Hendy. Essence works in conjunction with the curriculum for the students in the program. “They have to hit certain learning outcomes for the course so they do different learning techniques and different types of food every week,” said Hendy. Essence also does a dinner series once a month from Monday

to Wednesday. “For that we do theme nights. The second year students get to choose what they would like to do. This year we had some Barbadian students that were here on exchange so we decided to do a Barbadian themed night. It made them feel a little more at home and it was a great opportunity for our students to learn about it as well. It was fascinating and really interesting to see,” explained Hendy. Despite the lack of advertising, Essence still sees about 2035 visitors a day. Students, faculty, older members in the community and business people all take advantage of Essence’s gourmet menu and cheap prices. Hendy, as one of the instructors in the program, also really enjoys Essence. “We thoroughly enjoy the program and its integration with the restaurant. With all of the teachers and professors, we have such a large knowledge base. We have about 150 years worth of knowledge between all of us and we tell our students that you will never get that kind of knowledge anywhere else for this trade and it

is an excellent resource for them. All of this combined with the restaurant makes this program truly unique and an excellent opportunity for those interested in a

culinary career.” For more information on Essence and how to make reservations visit their website at www. home.sl.on.ca/essence

Odds and ends from the Frontenac Islands November meeting By Margaret Knott Correspondent

R0011781666_1206

EMC news- Very few Frontenac Islands council meetings are ever concluded without some issue surrounding ferry service. The November meeting saw the establishment of Howe Island ferry fees . HI resident Terry Botten reminded council they need also to revisit commercial vehicles, motorcycles,

including sticker and pricing policies. A further discussion came up initiated by Councillor Springgay regarding bicycle unloading off the ferry at Wolfe Island’s Dawson Point winter dock and the dangers that arise with cyclists leaving the ferry first in the dark and the safety issues that result as automobiles must pass the bicycles on the very dark narrow road. (There have been

Wolfe Island Post Office a treasure for Islanders The ‘Christmas Elves’ on Wolfe Island have been busy decorating Marysville in time for the Santa Claus Parade and Christmas. Not to be outdone, Islanders Janice Frost and Doris Eves joined Catherine Crowe (acting postmaster) in decorating the island’s rural Post Office for the Holiday Season.. The Post Office is recognized as one of, (maybe) the busiest of the smaller offices

for lively discussion, and of course to meet new residents . So it is no surprise as the Island prepares for Christmas that the Post Office would get ready too.. It’s a community event… Around Town:*The WI Community Hall, for too long without heat, now new quiet heater, was the perfect place to be following the Remembrance Day event and for the Christmas Market… Lovely , lovely….. *The HI County Ferry has been undergoing regulated shut downs for repairs. An unscheduled shutdown caused Kim Nossal (HIRA) to call for a (County) Alert for Ferry Outages involving a residential ‘listserv’ to be used by operators to immediately announce a ferry outage (also for back in service). “an email can be sent to a ‘listserv’ from any smartphone –“ he noted. *Frontenac County has chosen a logo for its 150th Anniversary.

in the region. Not surprising really. Anything available at the Kingston Post Office is available on the island. It is a lovely size, accessible , brightly painted and full of light. It has a well controlled bulletin board and most importantly, wonderful staff including those who come in to sort the rural mail, and deliver it, those who fill the lock and key boxes, serve at the counter and those deliver the mail to the city for the rest of its journey. But the Post Office is even more than that.. Here I go again remembering…. this time about the late Clifton Fargo who provided much sage (kind and wise) advice following our decision to live on the island. “It is good to get out every day,” he said. “Come in to Fargo’s to pick up the paper and go to the Post Office to pick up the mail, great places to meet people and to catch up on the news, or to break the dreariness of a dark day.” Clifton said. And he was right. The Post Office as well as fulfilling all postal needs, including gift purchases (unique stamps etc), has provided many happy/sad moments to stay in touch with people locally, to hear what’s going on, offered opportunities

focus on Sharbot Lake. He said, “we cannot let it drop.” Music Fest organizers are expected for a meeting early in the new year. FYI: Budget meetings are now underway with further meetings in early December and in January when, according to Mayor Doyle, the municipality hopes to finalize their household target for maximum tax increase, (an approach used by Kingston) “We talked about this concept, and said we should pick a number some place between 2 and 4 %. Then we know what we can afford to do, as we will have our total township revenue.” Council meets next: Mon. Dec. 10th , Howe Island at 6:30 pm

complaints). The proposed resolution asking MTO to establish a policy of unloading the cyclists was lost. Council will be looking for input from cyclists. Public notices have already been posted indicating that the issue will be on the agenda of the January 14th council meeting on Wolfe Island. While a resolution to a establish a Municipal Employee Policy Manual, a first for the township, was lost because certain areas of the manual have to be further clarified and added to, Deputy Mayor Jones wanted it made perfectly clear that the day a bylaw IS passed that any/all previous policies are repealed . Deputy Mayor Jones had concerns about a budget over expediture that had not come before council although controls have been put in place.” I believe there is a weakness. However rationalized, this expenditure, well over budget, never came before us..,” he said. Councillor Springgay referred to the situation as “communications issue”.. that need not have happened.

store. We went into stores we would never dream of entering any other time. Who could afford a store like Frasers? Just the rich people of Renfrew, that’s who. So Audrey and I would go in. The store always smelled of lemons for some reason, and of the newness of clothes, and there was always a big bowl of peppermints on the counter by each register. These candies were little round discs, dusty with peppermint powder. My sister and I always grabbed one each after we had circled the store looking at the beautiful clothes. At the “rich people’s stores,” as Audrey and I called them, they seemed to know we weren’t there to buy anything, because no one ever came up to us to offer help. That suited us just fine. By the time noon hour rolled around, we were ready for lunch, and ready to head over to the CPR station to go to the bathroom. I never saw Mother or Father eat. And I have no idea if they did, but we five kids were each handed a brown paper bag (saved of course from a purchase at Briscoe’s General Store) just as the town clock struck the noon hour. Through the generosity of the Chinese Restaurant, we were allowed to eat our lunch in one of the booths inside where it was warm. Good people, Mother called them. After we had eaten our plain jelly sandwich, we were more than ready to visit the station to use its facility. This was the one point in

would hitch them up to the sleigh, and we would pile onto the blankets, which had been laid out over a straw bed. They would be covered with white flour bag sheets at the start of the day so that everything offered for sale would look its best and look meticulously clean. Audrey would fold up the sheets. With Mother and Father on the one seat on the sleigh, and we five crowded onto the bed, we would head out for Northcote. It didn’t take long for the sun to fade, and by the time we reached the Northcote Side Road the daylight would be gone. Father would light a lantern and hang it on the post at the front of the sleigh. Only then would Mother tell us what kind of day it had been. If it was a good one, we would sing all the way home. If things hadn’t gone as well as expected, we were all very quiet. But whatever was realized at Turkey Fair day, it was enough to tide us over for another spell… and Mother would say, “It’s more than we had yesterday.”

EMC Lifestyle – Turkey Fair day. Once a year, farmers from far and wide converged on the town of Renfrew for what they all hoped would be a prosperous day. Ideally, all the fowl would be sold, and that would mean a brighter Christmas at a time when money was as scarce as hens’ teeth. Of course it wasn’t only turkeys that were taken into town: geese, eggs, butter, fresh cream, and always on our big flat-bottomed sleigh would be Mother’s sticky buns, which were usually the first to be sold. Turkey Fair day was also on a Saturday, so there were many hands to help with getting everything loaded on the sleigh, preparing a hearty lunch and making sure everyone had gone to the outhouse at the last minute, and was well wrapped up for the long, freezing day ahead. There was no sleeping in on Turkey Fair day. We were roused before dawn, because Father wanted to claim a good spot on the main street. Sales depended on where you parked the sleigh. Too far down Raglan, in either direction, meant you would be lucky to get rid of everything you had brought in from Northcote. The people who lived in town weren’t about to walk beyond the main business core. Once we claimed our spot, Father would unhitch the team and walk it down to the drive shed at the south end of town, and we were ready for business. The stores opened early that day, which delighted my sister Audrey and me, because we didn’t want to hang around the sleigh… we wanted to start at one end of the street, and work our way through every

the day I dreaded. I’m sure it was my imagination, but I always thought the station master didn’t approve of us farm children coming in just to use the bathroom. He wore a cap with a green celluloid piece in the front, and he peered out from under it, and scowled. We tried to be as quiet as possible, and we stomped the snow off our feet when we went in, so as not to leave a wet mark on the floor. The whole place was painted a sickly green, and smelled of strong disinfectant. Audrey and I used the bathroom as quickly as possible, so that we could head back to the main street. My sister always went to the counter and said thank you, but the station agent never raised his head. That afternoon, Turkey Fair day was coming to an end. I was too scared to ask Mother if everything she had brought in on the sleigh had sold. But I could usually tell from the look on her face. Everett would be sent to bring the horses from the drive shed, and Father

The holidays are for giving...

Movies for the new year Film fans often embrace the new year as they draw closer and closer to the coming year's most anticipated icks. Echoing a trend of years past, many of the most anticipated ďŹ lms of 2013 are sequels, prequels and reboots of classic ďŹ lms and stories. Expect some blockbuster action icks and favorite heroes to once again enchant the masses. Here are some of the ďŹ lms that ďŹ gure to garner audience attention in 2013. * Texas Chainsaw 3D: Leatherface will once again grace the big screen, this time displaying his standard gore and violence in 3D. Hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman learns she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew. When she goes to collect her wealth, she discovers horror in the Victorian mansion that is now hers. * Iron Man 3: Tony Stark is forced to go up against his most powerful enemy yet. Will he be able to conquer the Mandarin? * A Good Day to Die Hard: John McClane is back in a new adventure when he travels to Russia to help out his son who seems to have gone astray. But Jack is really a CIAoperative working to prevent a nuclear weapons heist. Father and son must team up to prevail. * Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters: Those who enjoyed the classic children's tale of Hansel and Gretel are in for a surprise when the story is turned on its head. Hansel and Gretel are now 15 years older and are specialized bounty hunters looking to annihilate witches. * Man of Steel: Followers of the Superman franchise will no doubt tune in to watch this new take on the well-known tale of an alien baby who grows up with super-human powers.

* The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: The popular follow-up to one of last year's biggest hits is slated for late 2013. Heroine Katniss faces the anger of The Capitol after her rebellion and deďŹ ance helped her win the annual Hunger Games. * Jack the Giant Slayer: This drama takes an adult perspective of the "Jack and the Beanstalk" legend. After a princess is captured, the long-standing peace between humans and giants is altered. Jack, a young farmer, is given the chance to enter the giants' kingdom in hopes of a rescue. * Oz: The Great and Powerful: Another children's tale to be revamped, this movie focuses on the wizard from "The Wizard of Oz," telling the story of how a Kansas charlatan became the Great and Powerful Wizard. * Star Trek Into Darkness: The USS Enterprise's crew is thrown into another chapter of space exploration. * The Wolverine: Logan must confront a mysterious ďŹ gure from his past and wage an epic battle that could change his life forever. This ďŹ lm loosely follows the early 1980s comic book miniseries. * The Smurfs 2: The little blue guys are back, and this time they're up against evil wizard Gargamel's newest threat: mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties. * Safe Haven: A young woman arrives in North Carolina, where she develops a bond with a widower. The relationship could reveal the dark secret that haunts her mysterious past. * The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: This movie will tell the story of Hobbit Bilbo Baggins and the scary adventure he takes with 13 dwarves.

King’s Town Players takes on a holiday classic By Mandy Marciniak EMC Correspondent

EMC Entertainment - A Christmas Story is one of the most well known and beloved holiday classics, and this year it comes to life on stage in Kingston. The King’s Town Players is putting on a production of the cult classic at Convocation Hall at Queen’s from Dec. 5-15. The production is adapted from the original screenplay for the movie and is being directed by David Slack, one of the founders of King’s Town

Players, a group that formed two and half years ago. Slack is very excited about putting on A Christmas Story this holiday season, and explained that there were some issues obtaining permission to do the play here in Kingston. “Initially we were turned down because it really hasn’t been done by an amateur group before and has only been done professionally. We were lucky enough that we were able to convince them to give us a shot at it and we would be very faithful and

have worked harder than I have seen a lot of other seasoned actors work. I’m looking forward to seeing them on stage and seeing the end result of all of our work,” said Slack. This will be the third time Slack has directed for King’s Town Players and certainly one of his most enjoyable projects. “With this play in particular, everyone comes to it with a story about it, whether they’ve seen the film 100 times or their parents did, it is such a wellloved movie and story and it’s really great to hear everyone’s connection to it. That makes it even more exciting because they are all very committed to the project and want it to do well.” Slack encourages everyone to come out and see the production, even if they aren’t familiar with the movie. “We encourage families to come out because it is a really enjoyable, fast-

good to the production.” The play itself is very true to the original screenplay, and for those that love the 1983 movie, many things will be very familiar. “The content of the show is very faithful to the movie with elements like the red rider BB gun, the famous leg lamp, flick and the gang with their tongue on the lamppost. It really has all of the elements that come to mind when you think of A Christmas Story,” said Slack. Casting for the play was somewhat challenging. The cast is made up of four adult actors that are quite seasoned and helped in mentoring the rest of the cast which consists of nine kids between the ages of eight and 12, “Many of them have very limited or no stage experience so the learning curve was a bit high in the beginning, but it has been great.

EMC Correspondent

EMC News - The holiday season means time for shopping, celebrating and getting together with friends, but it also means time to be aware and cautious when it comes to drinking and driving. Operation Red Nose is here to make sure that the community stays safe throughout the holidays by providing people with a safe way home after a night out. Operation Red Nose is an annual December campaign against impaired driving. It provides a free, volunteer-run designated driver service which caters to all motorists who have been drinking or who do not feel fit to drive their own vehicle. It provides patrons a safe, confidential ride in their own vehicle without getting behind the wheel themselves. Louise La Rue, program coordinator, has been working with Operation Red Nose since 1997 and emphasized the need for this service and the volunteers that make it work each year. “We need volunteers. We always need volunteers. Every weekend until Christmas we will be operating every Friday and Saturday night from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m.,

which is when we will take the last call for the night. We need teams of three, so for every call three people go out. We also need people to volunteer to be dispatchers and operators.” Last year the program had 271 volunteers which is a testament to how great this program really is. “The volunteers come and have training on the spot. We try to put people together based on their experience levels and their preferences. We try to be as accommodating as possible. We’ve never had any accidents and we try to have fun. We have very specific security instructions and we have ID numbers for the cars and volunteers to show clients that we are in fact with Operation Red Nose,” said La Rue. All volunteers for the program also undergo a police background check and are insured for liability by provincial sponsor Canada’s Home Car and Business Insurances. In addition to being a large-scale designated driving campaign, Operation Red Nose is a fundraiser for organizations who work with young people. In Kingston, funds raised benefit local family literacy projects and other educational programs. While the service is

free, people are encouraged to make donations for their ride and most people give generously. The average donation last year was $25 per call. Last year they were able to raise $14,000, bringing their total since 1997 to $151,000, a very impressive amount for a relatively small project that runs one month a year. “It is really great when you consider that everything is purely volunteer run. It is a really great program that is run by the community for the community. It is something that brings people together. Some people volunteer because they don’t have many friends and they can meet new people here and make friends,” added La Rue. “It is really fun and we get a lot of donations from local places of food and it is just a really fun night and we have built really great relationships over the years. It is an experience that is fun, people come here and give as much time as they can and when they are done they can go home and they know that they have helped the community.” For more information on Operation Red Nose or how to volunteer visit their website at www.kingston.org/ rednose/history.html

Hope and Action campaign aims to bring focus to gender violence By Mandy Marciniak EMC Correspondent

EMC News - From Nov. 25 to Dec. 10, many local organizations in the Kingston area have organized the Hope and Action campaign, a program that works in tandem with the 16 days of activism against gender violence, in an effort to bring attention to violence against women. Michelle LaMarche, education and communications coordinator for Kingston Interval House, one of the partners in the campaign, has been working hard to get the word out. “The campaign encourages people to make a commitment and share it with everyone, on what they will do to end violence against women and what they will do to help. That can be a very personal commitment in terms of doing something within their own family or taking a stand against violence that they are experiencing personally. Or it can be something on a much larger scale of perhaps coming and participating in future activism events or writing a letter to a member of parliament about this issue.” The campaign has set up two Hope and Action trees, one at the Central branch of

the Kingston, Frontenac Public Library and the other on the Queen’s campus. Members of the community are encouraged to visit these trees, write down their commitment on a leaf and add it to the tree. So far, the trees have seen quite a bit of traffic and LaMarche hopes to see this continue. “There were already five or six leaves on the tree at Queen’s within the first 12 hours, so that is really positive.” The campaign is also bringing attention to another issue on the Queen’s campus this year: prank Blue Light pushes. “It is an issue that has recently come to attention in the community,” explained LaMarche. “On Queen’s campus they have blue light emergency phones throughout campus. In the last few years there has been an increasing amount of prank phone calls made. Last year there were 327. This creates a lot of issues for campus security because they have to respond to all of the calls. The prank calls are an indication of a culture that does not take violence against women seriously. These phones were put there because the University responded to women in 1999 who wanted something done to protect them on campus and now they are being abused.”

The Queen’s AMS has launched a campaign to reduce these prank Blue Light pushes, utilizing posters and social media. One of the other events occurring with the Hope and Action campaign is a vigil on Dec. 6. “It is primarily to mark the anniversary of the 14 women that were murdered in Montreal at L’ecole Polytechnique. So we remember those 14 women, but the day has also been declared International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women. We’re focusing, this year particularly, on women who have been killed by their partners. There have been well over 500 women who have been killed by their partners since the Montreal massacre in Ontario alone. We will also be specifically remembering some local women and will have some family members there to speak,” said LaMarche. While these events see a great turnout each year, LaMarche emphasized the need for people to do more. “I would encourage people to come out to raise awareness. When people show up to these events, it lets other people see that it should be recognized as

Third annual “Local Fest” to aid Kingston Interval House By Kelly Reid

EMC Correspondent

EMC News - For local artist Vanessa Martin, painting has always been a way to connect with her community. “Since the beginning when I started painting, I thought that I should make charity a big part of it,” she says. This Sunday, Martin will be hosting a lively event to once again realize this goal. Local Fest, which is now in its third year, is an annual art show that Martin holds in collaboration with the Iron Duke pub. Martin has a long-standing relationship with the restaurant, having worked there for almost three years. The pub has hosted this charity event for the past two years as well. This year, the evening will benefit Kingston Interval House, an organization that helps women and children in crisis. Interval House provides temporary safe shelter and advocates on behalf of women. Martin has volunteered in the past for Interval House doing creative arts projects, and remarks, “They’re a nice

charity in that you can help in your own way.” Martin’s paintings will be for sale on Sunday, along with the jewelry of artist Heather Evans. “Sticky” Henderson of Sticky Knits will also have knitwear for sale. Twenty per cent of the artists’ sales will be donated to Interval House, as well as the ticket proceeds after a 50-50 draw. Martin, who has lived in many parts of Canada but originates from Kingston, emphasizes her desire to keep the event locally focused. “I want the charities to be local,” she says. In Local Fest’s past years, she has raised funds for Hearts for Change, which is located in Yarker and aids impoverished communities, and the Community Foundation, which is in the heart of downtown Kingston on Ontario Street. Community Foundation allocates resources to other organizations in need. The cause isn’t the only thing local. Tickets to the event include a sampling of local food, in addition to a beverage. Iron Duke is very committed to the locavore

cause, so attendees can expect to see offerings from vendors such as Patchwork Gardens and Seed to Sausage. Wellington Brewery is also donating a keg for the evening. The event isn’t ticket-only though; anyone can come and enjoy the restaurant and atmosphere. In addition to excellent food and drink, there will also be lots of entertainment at Local Fest, including Kingston musician Greg Ball. Ball plays a crowd-pleasing mix of folk and rock. Certainly, no one should feel that this event wouldn’t interest them, because “you could also just come and watch football,” laughs Martin. “We’re not going to torture anybody.” Despite having already sold out of her first batch of tickets, Martin is modest about her expectations for the evening. “I’m more hoping that it seems busy, that it has a good vibe, that there’s money being raised.” So far, Martin is on the right track. Tickets for Local Fest are available for purchase in person at the Iron Duke on Wellington or by calling the restaurant at 613-542-4244.

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

Enamored by books Mark Bergin Columnist mbergin@theemc.ca

EMC Lifestyle - It’s fitting that Deb Savoy’s email address starts with thebooklady@. She surrounds herself with books. They’re in her blood. There might even be some little book marker strand hanging out somewhere in her DNA. Born in Montreal, when she was 15 her family moved to Ottawa. About 14 years ago, with a four year old daughter, Alexis, in tow, she moved to Gananoque. Savoy wanted to raise her daughter in a small town. Alexis is now 18 and attending university in Ottawa. An aesthetician by trade, Savoy succumbed to her family’s vocational calling. Her parents operated Book Market outlets around Ontario for decades. In March 2000, Savoy opened All About Books along Gananoque’s main drag. When her inventory reached 50,000 books, she moved to a larger location. She’s now located at 126 King Street East. She figures her current stock comprises more than 100,000 books in at least 25 categories, including a large children’s section. She is always

changing and improving her shop and services. She hopes to be able to take online orders in the near future. She’d like to help customers locate hard-to-find books they’re searching for. Her shop, called All About Books Internet Café, is inviting and friendly. She sells fair trade organic tea and coffee and says she’s be introducing organic treats in the new year. There are nice comfy chairs and couches in the bookstore. Wireless access is a convenient touch. “Read, surf and java,” said Savoy. “I love the idea of sitting down to read with a coffee or tea in hand, regardless of where you are.” Savoy is trying to meet the needs of locals and visitors. She explained that the main method of communication for folks who travel the St. Lawrence by boat is email. “They are a large part of the community during tourist season,” she said. “Being a high traffic tourist town, every second person comes in an asks where they can hook up to the Internet.” Her motto for her shop is apt: The Thousand Islands greatest adventure in literature. She says her children’s section is the Disneyland of literature for kids. Not content to read books, Savoy’s also writing one. “I have an autistic sister,” she said. “I’ve taken care of her for the past three years. I’m inspired to write her story.” She hopes to finish the book

within the next year. In any time she has left over, she likes to paint. Keeping a shop with 100,000 books in order is no small task. “It’s an incredible amount of work,” said Savoy. “Truly the people and the product are what keep me going. I love what I do. It has a lot to do with the people. Many have made a visit to the shop a ritual in their lives. It’s more than a bookstore. It’s a gathering place.” I first met Deb about five years ago, not long after she’d opened her larger store. That was before the days of Nook, Kobo and other e-readers. “The book industry is never going away,” she said. “I don’t care where you get books, as long as you’re reading. Some shops close when people retire or don’t put the effort in. The day will come when I retire, but I’ve got quite a few years left in me.” She explained that she doesn’t fear the Internet or electronic books. “If you don’t constantly give people what they want, create a fresh environment and make the place comfortable, you’re not going to do well. I begrudge anyone who says bookstores close because of the economy. I put great effort into the environment and making everyone feel welcome. I don’t think a day goes by that friends and customers don’t come in just to chat. There’s always laughter in here.” Her own tastes in literature tend toward Canadian authors.

She particularly likes Lawrence Hill’s The Book of Negroes, which was published as Someone Knows My Name in the US, Australia and New Zealand. “That one really put Canadian writers on the map,” she said. “I love Canadian fiction. Canadian writers are very real without being over the top.” She said that one of her alltime favourite Canadian books is The Nine Lives of Charlotte Taylor, about the first pioneer woman in Canada. Savoy loves her Gananoque community. Her shop sponsors a reading initiative at Gananoque Intermediate and Secondary School. It’s called For the Love of Reading. “It started in October with Mrs. West from GISS,” she said. She gives gift certificates to readers who show initiative and write about their choice on the group’s Facebook page. She’s pleased with the artistic and commercial growth she sees in Gananoque. “This town is becoming a really cool little niche of interesting shops,” she said. She’s not kidding. In her block alone, there are several shops worth exploring. “It’s a great place to visit,” she said. “Gananoque’s a great day trip.” In Savoy’s shop, there’s a real mellow, yet exciting atmosphere. “Everybody’s sort of laid back,” she said. “They’re

easygoing and come in and sit down.” Her own personality, attitude and the environment she’s created have a lot to do with that. She’s created more than just a book shop. It’s more like the little independent “The Shop Around the Corner” run by Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) in You’ve Got Mail. One dif-

ference: Savoy has no plans to close her shop. If you’d like to see Debra Savoy in action, she’s going to be reading Christmas stories at All About Books on December 8 between noon and 1 p.m. To contact Debra Savoy, thebooklady@aabooks.ca, or call her shop at 613-381-9105. For more information, visit her website at www.aabooks.ca.

10-year-old’s Toy Drive once again a success By Kelly Reid

EMC Correspondent

EMC News - Devon Cobb has been a very busy young lady this holiday season. For the fifth year in a row, she has run a toy drive in her neighbourhood to support Children and Family Services of Frontenac, Lennox

and Addington. This organization works to strengthen families and protect children from harm. Cobb, who is just 10 years old, first approached her father, Sterling Cobb, about hosting a community food drive at age six. Since then, the pair has worked together each year to help hundreds of families in Kingston

and the surrounding area. Devon and her father begin each year by posting flyers in their area advertising the toy drive. They post to over 400 houses in the Bayridge and Bath Road region. Once word gets out, the pair travel door-to-door collecting donations. This year’s collection was held on Nov. 30. Many folks stepped forward in support of Devon and her event. The Cobb family sees loyal supporters year after year. “It’s a fun evening,” Sterling said. “It’s a great neighbourhood.” Knowledge of the event has gone much farther than just the neighbouhood, though. “Last year we got toys from Meaford, Ont.” he said. Additionally, this year, famed Canadian author Eric Walters met with Devon and promised to share her story with the schools he visits. He also donated a large number of books to the toy drive. By the end of Friday’s collection, Devon had well over a 1,000 single-item toys, and the Cobbs still have many toys coming in. This year is sure to be Devon’s largest collection. The Cobbs doubled their efforts this year, also collecting toys in Napanee. This is the first holiday season for the incorporated Children and Family Services, formed earlier this year by the amalgamation of the Children’s Aid Society of the City of Kingston and County of Frontenac,

Janet Keyes, who works with Children and Family Services, says that there are over six hundred families currently being serviced. Thanks to Devon’s toy drive, many of these families will be able to provide

a nice Christmas morning for their children. Devon, who is in Grade 5 at Henderson, already has plans for next year. She says that she plans to do another toy drive. Both Devon and her father hope to keep increasing the number of children that benefit

from their event; last year, they helped over 500 children, and their aim is even higher this season. Both Devon and Sterling are humbled by the amazing turnout this year. “We’re really grateful,” says Sterling.

Pay off Parking Tickets with Toy Donation By Kelly Reid

EMC Correspondent

EMC News - If you’ve found yourself the unhappy recipient of a parking ticket this holiday season, there is once again a payment option that may cheer you up. The city of Kingston is once again running its Toys for Tickets program, which allows residents to trade in the donation of a toy for their fee. “If the past predicts the present,” says Brandi Timp-

son, Supervisor of By-law Enforcement, “the majority of people who have received a ticket from Nov. 1st until Dec. 7th will choose to pay for that ticket with a toy.” Toys for Tickets is now in its seventh year, and Timpson says that the program always receives a positive response. “We witness many people coming to the payment centre here at City Hall to pay for a ticket with a toy in hand and a smile on their face because they know that the payment

they are making will go to a child in need during this holiday season,” she says. Residents can also be confident that they are helping folks in their own community: the toys are donated to the Bell Media toy drive in support of the local Salvation Army, and all of the toys stay in Kingston. Last year, the promotion collected 474 toys and Timpson hopes to see similar numbers this season. In order to be able to pay a parking fee with a toy, the

ticket must be dated between Nov. 1st and Dec. 7th. The toy must also be greater or equal in value to the amount of the fine at the time of payment; a receipt should be included with the toy. The only tickets

that do not qualify for this program are those that are issued for illegally parking in an accessible space. Recommended toys include plush animals, dolls, trucks, cars, and games. The

program is unable to accept toys with a war or gun theme, or toys that require glue or batteries. Collection will be taking place today and tomorrow at City Hall between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

EMC Entertainment - Anything Goes, with Cole Porter music and lyrics, first opened on Broadway in 1934 at the Neil Simon Theatre, then known as the Alvin. You have a chance to see the popular musical in Kingston at Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic High School, where the curtain rises at 7 p.m. from Wednesday, December 12 to Saturday, December 15. There’s also a 2 p.m. Saturday show. Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic High School has a strong drama program under the direction of Steve Powell. Add Juno/MusiCounts awardwinning Hugh Johnston’s musical direction and you have a recipe for performances far above standard high school fare. Regi consistently produces challenging shows, both in acting skill requirements as well as choreography and staging. Think of some of their past works like Les Misérables and Fiddler on the Roof.

This year’s Anything Goes is no exception. The story features madcap action on the high seas. It’s big-time Broadway fun. Billy Crocker (Will Gouett) stows away aboard an ocean liner heading to New York City from London. Billy is in love with heiress Hope Harcourt (Sammy Johnston). Lauren Knight plays Evangeline Harcourt, Hope’s overbearing mother. There’s a catch. Hope is already engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh (Gabe Laplante-Brady). A nightclub singer, Reno Sweeney (Daniella Richards), and Moonface Martin (Keaton Ryan), help Billy. Keep your eyes on Hailey Hill, who plays Moonface’s girlfriend, Erma. After seeing her in Hairspray, I featured Hailey in an Enchanté column. You’ll hear great Broadway tunes like “I Get a Kick Out of You,” and the eponymous “Anything Goes.” The cast includes 50 students who come from all grades. Another 50 students are busy behind the scenes in backstage and orchestral work. I always keep a focus on what Steve Powell and Hugh Johnston are up to. For years, they’ve put together shows that are must-see performances (same goes for Bayridge Secondary School’s Mike Bullett). For example, what high school teacher in his or her right mind would take on

each year. “We’ve done shows like Les Mis,” he said. “We wanted some lightness to contrast some of the heavier things we’ve done. We thought we’d do a comedy. We also try to pick different composers. We hadn’t done Cole Porter before.” They’re producing the 1987 version. “In the original, the pit was quite orchestral,” he said. “The newer version is very jazzy, but that presents its own problems. The music was written for New York City professional musicians. Having said that, we’ve got a good group. There are a couple of professional musicians in the band. We’ve worked hard for a couple of months.” The 1987 revival starred one of my favourite Broadway actors, Patti Lupone, as Reno Sweeney. That’s quite an act to follow, but I think Daniella (Dani) Richards will shine in the role. And Dani said she’s excited that she’ll get to do some tap dancing. When Dani Richards is on stage, she owns it. There’s no hesitation in her work. She plays the outrageous moments as well as the subtle ones with finesse. And she’ll be there with Hailey Hill. It’s hard to imagine that 17-year-olds could be seasoned veterans of the stage, but Hailey told me that she and Dani have

by newcomer, Will Gouett. “I didn’t know what to expect, but he has completely blown me away with what he can do and I have no doubt this musical will be a success.” As an example of how hard these young actors work and how seriously they take their productions, after landing the role of Reno Sweeney, Dani travelled to Ohio to catch a performance of Anything Goes on its North American tour. She said she also watched Sutton Foster play the role in every YouTube video she could find. Foster won the Tony Award for her role as Reno Sweeney in the most recent Broadway revival of the show in 2011. Talented, but less experienced, Will Gouett is in his first starring role. From what I’ve seen in rehearsal, he looks natural and comfortable on stage. In fact, he’s perfect for the role of Billy Crocker. In drama class, the theatre bug awakened in him and he auditioned for Anything Goes. He leads a busy life. In addition to his theatrical work, Gouett loves basketball and he plays throughout the year. He’s also taken piano lessons since the age of five. He still trains with the same teacher. “He’s not afraid to get up and put on a performance,” said Hugh Johnston. “During auditions, when he and Dani were reading lines, he was very natural. He has a big role in the play. Vocally, he’s strong, too. He’s a

each worked in 20 shows, many of them together. Double check the data. Indeed, 20. Their first acting experience together was in Seussical, when they were ten years old. Hugh Johnston saw that first show, so he’s seen these two actors develop and grow. “You don’t get these kind of seasoned actors too often,” he said. “They research their parts. Some kids depend on you to show them everything. Hailey and Dani know what to do. They do it all, which is what you would get in semi-pro theatre. In high school, we often get first-time actors and chorus members.” Hailey Hill explained her approach. “I get into a role by doing a ton of research,” she said. “Using script, my imagination and the wonderful thing that is YouTube, I figure out how my character walks, talks and acts in different situations. For me, getting into character is more like a fun kind of homework.” Working with first-time actors hasn’t distracted her. “My favourite thing about the cast is how fresh it is,” she said. “We lost so many talented leads last year due to graduation, so we were all very worried what state the cast list would be in when it came time to put on Anything Goes. But, wow, did we manage to get an amazing cast this year.” She said she was surprised

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

Save when shopping this holiday season * Empty your wallet of gift cards. Gift cards are popular gifts come the holidays, but many gift card recipients fail to use their cards prior to their expiration dates. Many cards expire 12 months after their initial purchase date. If your wallet is filled with gift cards you received last holiday season, use them to buy gifts for friends and family now before they expire. * Make a list. Santa Claus is renowned for making a list come the holiday season, and holiday shoppers should follow his lead. Prior to your first holiday shopping trip, make a list that includes the names of friends and family to buy for and what you want to buy for each one of them. Doing so decreases the chances you’ll forget someone and be forced to drive back to the mall. Reducing the number of shopping trips you have to make will conserve fuel and save you a substantial amount of money and time. * Pay in cash. If you’re not a fan of online shopping, then use only cash when shopping at brickand-mortar stores. Paying with cash eliminates the risk of overspending with credit cards, which will come back to haunt you in January when the bills are due. Take a predetermined

amount of cash with you when shopping, and once that money is gone, then it’s time to go home. * Don’t be tempted by retailer credit cards. Retailer credit cards can be very tempting, especially when the cashier offers an immediate 20 percent discount if you sign up for the card at the register. But that discount comes at a steep price down the road. Not only will you be receiving a bill after the holiday season, but that retailer credit card will most definitely feature a high interest rate that can negate the initial discount at the register -unless you pay off the balance in full. * Create spending parameters with your immediate family. The economy has yet to fully recover from the downturn that began nearly half a decade ago. As a result, many people still approach the holiday shopping season with a degree of trepidation. Get together with your immediate family and establish spending parameters so no person feels like he or she has to spend too much money on holiday shopping. Agree that no gift should cost more than $25. Everyone will still enjoy the holiday season and one another’s company, and they won’t be forced to deal with the stress of overspending.

SAVINGS OF THE SEASON

R0011781185

The holiday season is filled with tradition. Many families have their own unique customs, and those traditions create lasting memories for adults and children alike. One such holiday tradition is shopping for gifts for family and friends. Many people enjoy holiday shopping, anxiously anticipating the look on their loved ones’ faces when they open their presents. But holiday shopping is even more enjoyable for shoppers who can save a little extra money. The following are a few tips for shoppers who still want to give the perfect gifts but don’t want to break the bank. * Stop paying for shipping. Many people now do their holiday shopping online. Online shopping can be more convenient and give consumers more options. But some shoppers still shy away from online retailers for fear of high shipping costs. However, some retailers offer free shipping to consumers who spend a certain amount of money. In addition, savvy shoppers can scour the Internet for free shipping codes they can use at checkout. Some retailers even offer free shipping during the holiday season (last minute purchases might not be eligible) to entice customers.

Prevent lost children while holiday shopping The only thing scarier during the holidays than the tally on a credit card bill come January is the idea of a child getting lost or abducted while out shopping. Safety tips can keep children by your side or help caregivers find kids fast should they

wander off. These are a busy few months at the mall, with many people packed into stores in search of the perfect gifts. Confusion and the sheer volume of shoppers can increase the chance that a child will get lost.

A lost child can create panic parents and caregivers. However, keeping a level head is more beneficial than running off to find the child. Although preventing a child from wandering off is the best method of protection, being prepared for what to

do should the child go missing is equally important. * Talk about what to do. Sit children who are old enough down to help them understand and set up a plan of action if they become separated from you. In familiar stores, you can establish a meeting spot to go to, such as near the cash register. Instruct children to seek a security guard or store employee and ask for help. * Dress boldly. Part of the problem when holiday shopping is being swarmed by different people all dressed similarly. Designate brightly colored clothes that both you and your children can wear to be more visible. Most small children only have the vantage point of seeing from the waist down. Consider wearing flashy shoes or a bandana tied to belt loops to help you stand out. Children can wear a bright shirt or hat so you can see them at all times. * Dress-up strollers, too. Many strollers are identical in appearance. Set yours apart by tying a ribbon or balloon to it. This way you will be able to notice if someone is wandering off with your stroller -- and your child! * Carry a recent photo. Take a picture of your children with your mobile phone before leaving the house so that you will know exactly what he or she was wear-

ing and will have the most recent photo available for identification. In addition to taking a head shot, take a photo of the child’s shoes, too. In events of child abduction, kidnappers may have a change of clothes ready for children, but rarely will they be able to change kids’ shoes because of sizing issues. Those shoes can prove an invaluable method of identification. * Give children identification. You can create a personal ID card with basic information to help reunite you with your child. This may include only the child’s first name and an “I’m Lost” message with a phone number to “Call Mom.” Because even an ID card can go missing, some inventive parents are using methods like temporary tattoo IDs like those from SafetyTat(R). * Hold hands and stay connected. Keep your chil-

dren within reach and do not let them stay in one aisle while you shop in another. Holding hands keeps children within reach. Although many parents frown on the use of a child leash, if it means the difference between a child running off or staying put, it might be a good idea. * Reinforce positive behavior. Should a child wander off and follow safety tips, reward that behavior with praise when you are reunited. Wait until another time to talk about why he or she got lost and how to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Children tend to wander off out of curiosity or by following the wrong person. During the busy holiday season this can happen more frequently. By heeding tips, children can be kept safe whenever the family is in a crowd.

HOUSE AND HOME

A restful refuge By Merola Nibourg Columnist

EMC Lifestyle - Bedrooms are probably one of the most neglected areas of any home although we spend one third of our lives there. Most people only require a room that contains a comfortable bed. As reasoning goes, “If the greatest portion of that time is spent visually unconscious, who cares how the room looks?” Back in history, bedrooms did not even exist. Domestic privacy did not really arise until the beginning of the 17th century. Before this time, people ate, entertained and slept in the same room. People rarely slept alone. Around the 17th century, beds were made less mobile and a fitted curtain was attached to give some degree of privacy. Still, servants slept alongside their masters on trundle beds. It’s hard to imagine that there was so little privacy, but at one point in time people who man-

aged to shut themselves up in a room for some time were regarded as exceptional characters. It was in the 18th century when the notion of family life and privacy took root, that rooms with specialized furniture took over from semi-public arrangements of space in a house. Most notably, bedrooms moved upstairs and became citadels of privacy. Now, in the 21st century, bedrooms are returning to a less isolated area, but not as public as before. Many people feel uneasy sleeping in ground floor bedrooms, particularly because in upper floors they receive more light. Now eco-designers are designing homes where the bedroom is oriented towards the sunrise so people wake up naturally with the sun. The theory is our bodies are tuned to the sun’s cycle and if you are gently nudged awake by the sun immediately after a period of REM sleep you are more likely to emerge refreshed and energetic.

Conversely, if you are woken artificially in mid-sleep cycle, you will have to drag yourself out of bed. Certainly, the idea of sleeping facing the east has prevailed through the years and with many different cultures. Today’s bedrooms are developing multiple purposes, often combining as a study or personal living space. The bedroom should not be undervalued. We don’t fall asleep right away, there are those moments just before we go to sleep, taking a look back at our day and winding down, or waking up recharged and taking time to reflect and contemplate. So your bedroom should have as much attention as your kitchen or living room. Bedrooms are mainly used as a room for sleeping. They should be more than just a bed in a room, especially when space is at such a premium. We should acknowledge this space. The bed is the dominant feature in the room, but what about the space around it? This space

tends to be awkward and unfocused, with no easy circulation flow. These qualities all make the bedroom uninviting and dead space during daytime. So what are your solutions? There are futons and sofabeds, which have the benefit and versatility but lack as a permanent arrangement. Although technology has improved, these are still not as comfortable as a traditional bed. The solution may be as simple as moving the bed to a different position. Moving the bed to a corner may give you more manageable space, but makes access for one person difficult and changing the sheets a chore. It also allows little to no space for a beside table. There are built-in alternatives such as a shelf or small cove in the wall. Most people are happier with the bed cater-corner to the door, half concealed behind the door rather than facing it. This is known as the ancient science as feng sui. Feng sui guides interior design and often resides much rational sense. With this science, the bed should be positioned so the occupant can see anyone entering the room. The headboard

should rest against the wall, not floating in space since the bed’s occupants will otherwise feel similarly unanchored in life. One solution would be to incorporate a study into the bedroom. This allows the bedroom to be used both day and night. Some people feel it is unhealthy to have electromagnetic radiation in the same room as we sleep. It also attracts the obvious dust. Or some feel the bedroom should be a space for relaxation. This can be achieved by adding a small library to your room, with a chaise lounge. A perfect place to escape for a tranquil moment. Today’s modern bedrooms are about the physical and visual conditions. We associate sleep with purity, and this is why we are so concerned about sleeping in a benign atmosphere. The bedroom also has a sensual side, which some emphasize. Whereas some bedrooms are designed in a more exotic look in dark colours and with a four poster bed for instance. Perhaps this is why so many of us do not show off our bedrooms, because they reveal too much of us, and we tend to design our rooms safely to yield

no clues. Certain colours work best in a bedroom. Although white remains popular for its pure and romantic elegance, yellow makes a room look sunny, even when skies are grey. Those who are more awake at night should choose colours that are darker; jewel-like colours to intensify a warm enclosed atmosphere. A bedroom is your own personal space, and should be designed to suit your personal lifestyle, and preferences.

placement of 592 tonnes. Her compliment consisted of six officers and 77 crew. “The Allies were losing the war at sea and in October and November 1942 they were losing an average of three ships a day, but innovations slowly began to assist,� said Bill Beswetherick of the Legion. “The British began to break the German naval code, radar improved, long-range aircraft patrolled the entire convoy route, escort aircraft carriers began escorting convoys, and the Allied ship-building caught up to losses.� The Melville was named after Melville, Saskatchewan, one of 128 such craft built for the Allied navies. A relatively small vessel, quarters were tight and not many comforts were available for the men who served on her. Although the minesweepers were not designed to cross the Atlantic, brother Jack also served on one at the Normandy invasion. The ship only travelled at 16 knots (a rate of about 17 miles per hour), so the trip across would have been very wearing on those aboard. When it was realized in Canada that the Germans weren’t laying down a lot of mines, the minesweepers were assigned to escort convoys in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. During this time, a submarine managed to sink a ferry to Newfoundland, resulting in the deaths of more than 100 people. Don’s service was mainly in the “Atlantic Triangle�. His job was to escort the convoys from Halifax, a few hundred miles east of New-

At the end of the war, both brothers returned to Gananoque, where they joined the Legion in 1945. John Matheson, known as the father of the Canadian flag, is the only person still living to have served longer with the branch, having joined in 1944.

“We’re expecting a lot of people to come out,� said Beswetherick. It is hoped that everyone in the area who knows the Harding brothers will come out for the celebration, and that they’ll bring friends. There will be some special guests to help honour the event, and Don and the Legion will be more than happy to see you all.

Holiday fare serves up surprising superheroes My Take By mARK HAsKins

EMC Entertainment - Rise of the Guardians turned out to be one heck of a superhero film. Who knew? An ancient enemy threatens to turn the dreams of children into nightmares. He’ll steal hope and wonder, and cloak the world in darkness. His name is Pitch Black (Jude Law), but most fear By JoHn tUcKER him as the Boogeyman. Fortunately there are guardians who protect the children of the world. All four, Santa Claus

Canada Jack

(Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher) and the Sandman, have come together to fight Pitch. Each immortal has special powers, but even they may not be enough. Fortunately a new guardian has been chosen; Jack Frost (Chris Pine). Jack is another immortal with powers over ice, cold and wind. He’s a jokester and a trickster. He’s the one who brings snow days to children, and starts snowball fights. He’s not a guardian, but if Jack is to have any hope of defeating Pitch he’ll have to discover the hero he was always meant to be. Imagine if Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and Jack Frost were part of The Avengers, and you’ll have a pretty good idea

what Rise of the Guardians is like. It’s a fantastic adventure of good versus evil in which a group of immortals with amazing powers battle a terrifying evil. There’s a holiday theme, but it’s basically a superhero film.

It’s an imaginative story that doesn’t shy away from being a little dark in places. That dark undertone really heightened the excitement and intensity of the film. There are some powerful moments, which combined

with the stunning animation, makes Rise of the Guardians a must-see film. Alec Baldwin is the voice of the larger than life, sword wielding, tattooed, Russian warrior that is Santa Claus. It’s a great character and Baldwin is awesome. The Easter Bunny, with his magic boomerangs, is nature’s fierce defender. There’s no one better to voice the six-foot Australian bunny than Hugh Jackman. The Tooth Fairy is part human and part hummingbird and all fairy. She’s full of energy, and Isla Fisher really helps bring her to life. Though he doesn’t have a voice I should also mention the Sandman. He appears as a kind-hearted purveyor of

dreams who communicates through his sand creations, but when the fight is on, well let’s just say you don’t want to mess with the Sandman. As villains go the Boogeyman is as classic as they get. He’s everything we fear about the dark. Like all true megalomaniacs intent on taking over the world, Jude Law steals the show. Jack struggles with who he is, but deep down he’s a born hero. Chris Pine is perfect as the immortal trickster of ice and snow. Rise of the Guardians may be a superhero/holiday adventure, but mostly it’s just good fun.

Kingston Movember Team finishes at Lucky 13 corporate backers contributing matching funds, this Kingston team still managed to land in the top 15. Chris James is very proud to have been involved and we’re thankful for the efforts the team and our local supporters put in.” Chris James supported the team with a $100 donation to each team member’s fundraising. In addition, donors to the team received a Chris James gift card. James Brett Coiffure also offered a gift card to everyone who donated $100 or more. For photos of the event and the fun had by this ambitious team please visit the Chris James Kingston Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ ChrisJamesKingston). Next year’s team captain was chosen at last night’s event and the Chris James team is already planning for bigger and better things next year. “I am truly humbled that my Kingston Mo’ Bro’s have chosen me as next year’s captain. I hope that I will be worthy to fill the shoes of my illustrious predecessor. Our sites are firmly set on the top ten next year and I expect greatness from the Chris James Team, once again sweeping all before us with our Mo’s of destiny!” commented Jay Rayner, the team’s top fundraiser, having raised nearly $6,000 on his own.

EMC News - A group of Kingston businessmen are looking dapper this morning after shaving their Mo’s and celebrating their Movember success in a 13th place victory. “These stalwart men of Movember were a joy to lead this month. We had a lot of fun competing with each other for this important cause. We are all grateful to Chris James for launching and supporting the team and I am proud to have had the opportunity to guide them to an auspicious finale,” said Adam Koven, Chris James Movember Team Captain. The team and their supporters gathered at Chris James last night where their efforts were revealed and they celebrated in style. It ended where it began, with a shave from a James Brett Coiffure stylist and a lot of goodnatured competition. With the support of customers, friends and other businesses, the Chris James Kingston team raised nearly $18,000 for men’s health. Jim Adams, partner at Chris James, was very happy with the results of the campaign, saying, “We didn’t know what to expect when we started this. It was an amazing boost when the team found themselves in 10th place earlier this week. Without major

After ten years in the business I was ready for a change. Leaving a giant corporate smaller office for a smaller, more intimate, boutique-style space just made sense. The personal benefits, as well as professional benefits I have gained from the move have been life-changing. Unparalleled support from one of the best administrative teams in the industry means you have MORE TIME to spend with your clients, and MORE TIME to spend on YOUR LIFE. The team environment is something I personally thrive in, especially when your included in a group of like-minded individuals, who are positive, and see the bigger picture in this business. Refreshing in a career that is everchanging.

When I first met with Pierre to hear about his vision on creating a real estate team, I was inspired! It has been four years since joining the “team” and I have never looked back. Before that time, I loved my job, loved the people, loved the networking, and I took great satisfaction in every deal completed but... I was at a point that even though I loved what I did, the question was could I really make it in such a competitive field? I couldn’t jump on every opportunity as ad deadlines had to be met, paperwork completed, working too hard to find open houses etc and my window of possible lead generation was small if not completely nil. I may have had to leave a business that I enjoyed. Joining Pierre’s team has made it possible to keep all the items I love about Real Estate, but make money at it too... the window of leads to create deals from are increased tenfold if not more with his system... the support network is incredible and I can now spend more time with my clients and create lasting relationships. It doesn’t stop there either as it also benefits my home life... I get more quality time with my family and friends... I
