Meet this Week’s “Friday FurBall”- Todd

Posted on by Courtney

ToddThis sweet boy is Todd. He is a young lab looking for his forever family to make them part of theirs. Todd was found early morning tied to our gazebo that is out on our front property when the staff were arriving. He was scared and unsure what was going on. When the staff came out to see him he was nervous but then realized they were there to help him. He began to shower the staff with kisses and relieved tail wags. He was brought in side the shelter where he was given a bowl full of food, fresh water and a care exam. When he had his exam it was revealed he had an ear infection that needed attention. We have treated the ear infection, we have neutered him, vaccinated and dewormed him and of course treated him with a flea preventative. Since he has been in our care we have gotten to know this playful sweet and loving boy. He has warmed our hearts and I am sure he will with you. It is recommended he got to a home with children over the ages of 6 years as he is still hyper and a bouncy puppy. He is great with other dogs and would love a buddy to play with. He is a sweet boy that loves affection and loves to play! Come meet this sweetie today!

 401 Crash – Drivers Dies 

The driver of a transport truck died in a crash that closed the 401 in the Mallorytown area yesterday morning.

The OPP says the eastbound truck crossed the median into the westbound lanes – went through a metal barrier – hit a rock cut and exploded.

The driver was able to get out of the truck and was helped by a passing motorist.  He was taken to hospital in Brockville where he was pronounced dead.

Napanee Crash

Nobody was injured when a car veered off Highway 2 in Napanee…ran right through the bowl of the skatepark and wound up against a tree on the other side of the park.

There were about two dozen children playing in the park.

Students Move In

Students moving into the massive new apartment complex at the corner of Princess and Victoria Streets are finding unfinished rooms, with construction still going on to finish the building.

Some students have been asked to delay moving in – others have found their furnished apartments aren’t furnished yet.

The original structure was destroyed by a spectacular fire a year and a half ago.

The manager says they’re doing everything possible to help tenants.

About 250 people have already moved in and those who haven’t been able to have been given other accommodation.

 St. Mary’s Repairs

Providence Care is asking the province to spend $5 million to fix up the south wing of the old St. Mary’s of the Lake Hospital.

It says the repairs are needed to make sure there’s no interruption in patient care before its new hospital next to Lake Ontario Park opens in about 20 months.

The request has been approved by the Local Health Integration Network and forwarded to the province.

Downtown Demolition

Kingston City Council has given the green light to the Springer Group to demolish stucco covered buildings on Princess Street in downtown Kingston.

The buildings from 101 to 109 Princess Street will be torn down to make way for a $6 million dollar banking centre.

Scotiabank says it will close its two other downtown locations when the new building is finished.

The developer had wanted to save the limestone and use it for construction of the new banking centre at Princess and Wellington Streets – but it was destroyed when the stucco was applied to the original limestone buildings.

 Gun Incident

The man at the centre of a gun scare at the Woolen Mill is giving a bit of praise to Kingston Police.

Animation artist Peter Bielicki says they were courteous and professional in dealing with him after he brought a replica gun into the building on Sunday night to use in his work as an animation artist.

Someone saw a man with a rifle and called police.  The tactical team surrounded the building and was able to contact the man around 11:30 Sunday night.  Officers seized a number of replica firearms and say the animator will get them back if they determine the guns can’t actually be fired.

Federal Election – Economy

A leading economist is questioning all the political posturing over the economy during the federal election campaign.

Don Drummond is the Stauffer-Dunning Fellow at the School of Policy Studies at Queen’s University, and a former chief economist at T-D Bank.  Drummond says so far most political comments have been largely misleading.

He says in the bigger economic picture, it doesn’t matter whether the economy contracted or grew by a small fraction of a percentage point or whether the federal budget is in or out of deficit by a few billion dollars.

Drummond says the bickering over these details causes voters to miss the main point — that the world is entering a period of sustained lower growth.

 Woolen Mill Standoff

A scare at the Woolen Mill building is over after the Kingston Police tactical team determined a man had entered the building last night with a replica rifle and there was no risk to the public.

Police received a 911 call shortly before nine last night describing a man carrying what appeared to be a rifle or shotgun entering the building at the foot of Cataraqui Street.

Police made sure the three people working at the Whig Standard were out of the building and were able to make contact with the man around 11:30 last night.

They confirmed he had entered the building with a non-functioning replica firearm as reference for art and design purposes.  Tactical officers entered the building and seized a number of what are believed to be replica firearms. The man was released and police left the area shortly after midnight.

Another Gun Call

While police were wrapping up the situation at the Woolen Mill they got another gun call.

Shortly after midnight police were called to a restaurant on the 500 block of Princess Street where a man claiming to be a police officer had threatened staff and shown them butt of gun in the belt of his pants.

A 44 year old man was arrested and a pellet gun was recovered.

The man is facing charges of uttering threats, possession of weapon dangerous to public peace and impersonating a police officer.

Posted on by Courtney

Caturday 600x200
RhondaTimid Rhonda was quite nervous when she came to KHS, and she is still quite shy while being in her cage. Originally she came to us as a stray, so we don’t know a lot about this sweet girls background. Rhonda spent some time in a foster home whom absolutely adored her. She was well behaved, and soaked up all the luxuries of being a spoiled house cat. Now it’s her time to find a forever home, and she hates being at the shelter so we want to find her perfect someone as soon as possible! She may be shy in her cage, but she’s a lovely mannered lady in the home and is anxiously waiting for you.

 Gold Standard – Skin Cancer Surgery

Kingston is home to a new surgery program that will provide the gold standard treatment for skin cancer.  A new micrographic surgery program has opened at Hotel Dieu Hospital.  Hotel Dieu is one of only 13 hospitals in Canada to offer the program.

Officials say the microsurgery program has a 99% cure rate for basal cell cancers and a 97% cure rate for squamous cell carcinomas.

It’s especially effective on aggressive skin cancers and can be performed on an outpatient basis with the use of local anesthetic.

 Wolfe Islander – Delayed Again

People who use the Wolfe Island Ferry, the ferry to Amherst Island and the Glenora Ferry have received more bad news.

The Ministry of Transportation has announced the Wolfe Islander III will not be returning to service the week following Labour Day and it says there is no estimated date for it to be back from dry dock in Hamilton.  MTO says the delay has been caused in work to upgrade the ferry’s wheelhouse.

Until the work is finished…the Frontenac II will continue providing service from Kingston to Dawson Point.  The Quinte Loyalist will remain in service for Amherst Island…and 30 minute single ferry service will continue at the Glenora operation.
